Despair: One In Jesus in the Finals

I just got this email from Theobloggers —

You’re a finalist for a Christian Blogger Award at this year’s Christian Bloggers Luncheon at the Tulsa Workshop. Please advertise this on your blog and encourage people to visit to cast a vote and to register for the luncheon. Winners will be announced at the luncheon.

And so, once again, Patrick Mead one-ups me. You see, Patrick is in the finals for Blogger of the Year, and I’m not. And I have to go head to head with him for “Best Leadership/Discipleship Blog.” I don’t have a chance. The guy has FIVE nominations! He’s untouchable. It’s like being asked to compete in HORSE against Michael Jordan. Or in wasting money with AIG. All is lost.

Some frequent commenters here have been nominated — and some have a chance: they don’t all have to go head to head with Patrick Mead. So go to and vote. And, yes, I suppose you might vote for, you know, me while you’re there. But it won’t matter. I have as much of a chance as Alabama has of winning the NCAA tournament. And Alabama didn’t even make the NIT (Not Invited Tournament).

    Congratulations, Jay. 🙂 So I guess we have to go vote now.

    (Yeah, what was the problem with SEC basketball this year? Kentucky didn't make it while their arch nemesis Louisville got the #1 overall seed.)

  2. OK Jay, I love the fact that you are knocking on 'Bama in this post but seriously. . . unlike the Bamaballers you actually have some talent. You should win and since I think so then I am quite sure everyone else does. 🙂

    Good Luck!

    I think you will take him, especially because your blog actually deals with leadership on a regular basis.
