Vote For Me




Hi readers, today I am doing a little self promoting, well a lot actually. Voting begins today in the People’s Choice Award of the Australian Writers’ Centre Best Australian Blogs 2013 Competition. Although I have no illusions that I will win in any of the main categories of these blog awards I would hate to look like a complete loser in the peoples’ choice section. Once again I don’t expect to win but I would really like the Australian blogging community  to notice what a great community we have here at 365 Less Things. So if you could take five minutes to place a vote for 365 Less Things I would much appreciate it.

If you are reading this message at the blog all you need do is click on the big blue Vote For Me button on the right hand side of the page just below the Join Our Community box.


If you are reading this via email then click on this link ~ Vote for Me button ~ an follow the voting process. 

Thank you in advance to anyone who places a vote.

  1. you just got a vote from snowie Germany 😉

  3. Antother vote for you from Maine, USA. I always read your blog, but have not commented until now. Although I do not always follow your advice (I pretty much deal in clutter since I have a booth in an antique shop and constantly bring “stuff” home, your writing helps me keep things in perspective! And I am much better at separating business clutter from my living space, which makes me much more sane 🙂 Good luck with the blogging competition!

    led by the warm and encouraging Colleen!

    Good Luck with the competition 🙂 🙂 😉

  41. Hi Colleen- and a vote from sunny South Australia (well – sort of sunny …).Love your blog and will never forget how excited I was when I just happened to stumble across it late one evening . I think I posted a comment straight away (first time that I had ever contributed to a blog) and then to my delight you responded – which was more exciting than meeting the Queen! Not a lot of decluttering going on any more as mostly things are just the way I would like them to be with lots of free space everywhere. I still enjoy 365 less things though as I think the way we live in our houses , the way we use our space ,and the stuff that we have is not a fixed and unchanging thing such as a destination, but hopefully an ongoing journey. Thanks again!

  42. dont have much time to comment lately, but of course I voted too! greetings from sunny (but still too cold) germany! happy easter everyone

  43. Done :-), Good luck.

  44. You got my vote. Good luck!
