Congrats! You’re a Foodie Fantasy Finalist!

This was the subject line of the e-mail I received yesterday that set my heart a’twitter.

After spending days creating my submission for Whole Food’s Foodie Fantasy Food Blogger Video Contest, I learned that out of over one hundred videos submitted by fellow food bloggers, mine was chosen as a finalist! You can watch the video and vote for me here: http://bit.ly/fwRuZu.

I hope you won’t mind if I employ the five W’s to explain what this is all about.

Who: I’m one of eight food bloggers from across the U.S. and Canada that are finalists in Whole Foods “Foodie Fantasy” trip for two from Berlin to Paris (with stops in Amsterdam and Bruges along the way)

What: Over the past month, over one hundred food bloggers submitted short videos telling Whole Foods why they should win. Yesterday, panel of judges narrowed it down to eight finalists.

Where: This is a Facebook contest, located on the “Foodie Fantasy” tab of Whole Food Market’s Facebook page. You can also go straight to my page.

When: You can vote once daily for your favorite video until Friday, April 15.

Why: Hopefully, the video will make you smile. But that’s just enough to get you to vote for me once. Maybe you’ll vote for me every day from now until April 15 because you are a good person and friend, and because I’d do it for you. I’ll do my best to keep my daily pleas entertaining too.

Since whomever gets the most votes wins, this effort will truly take a village! You can pitch in by:

  • Setting a reminder on your calendar to vote daily from April 5 through April 15
  • Sending a message to your Facebook friends
  • Updating your Facebook or Twitter status

As a reminder, the link to check out the video and vote is http://bit.ly/fwRuZu

I wish I didn’t have to bother you guys with shameless pleas for daily votes but since I must, I hope to do so in the least annoying, most entertaining manner possible. Thank you now, and always, for your support. I’m so lucky to be part of such a supportive community of friends, family, and food lovers!
