NOT SAVVY

I just got an email from Real Savvy Moms....and I placed second to last in the vote count. So, I did not win. RATS! (I'm really ok about this....)

I have already done some Shout Outs to the many supporters of this contest, but I wanted to include a few more that I have found over the past few weeks.

THANK YOU:

Mrs. Gedde

Nitty. Gritty.

Sorenson Family

And of course to everyone who started their email chains and blogs that I never found that were advertising the contest and everyone who clicked that VOTE button!

Kristy, So suprised you didn't win, but oh well, you seem busy enough anyhow, since now practically every time I look in a magazine I see you on an advertisment of some sort!
Plus having two kiddos is an amazingly crazy job anyhow...

There is probably an even better opportunity out there for you. At least it gave you another opportunity to get your name out and show the world how beautiful and talented you are. Best wishes!

SHOCK. Their loss. Do you know who won?

The winners are Melissa Cooper and Rayme Cornell. I was a contestant also and I'm shocked about the final results. Obviously the view count on grouper had nothing to do with the final votes.... Anyways, Way to Go Melissa & Rayme!

I'm disappointed for you. You don't know me but I've been voting for you daily! :(

Layton Clan said...

What??? That is so not possible. Your video and your coolness by FAR out rates these other not so savvy moms. I still think you are the #1 savvy though.

Suzanne said...

Such a bummer-you were by far the best one. Their loss for sure.

Anon (whoever you are?), I too was thrown off my the grouper # of views. By the end I had about 36,000 views....so it seems strange that there wouldn't be at least a percentage of those views turning into votes. But, I am not a sore loser about this, it was just fun while it lasted.....and it lasted...boy howdy did it LAST!

Samyo said...

Thee other contestants were a bunch of Sanjayas.

You're the best!

I wonder if some people didn't get that just watching wasn't voting...?

You have such a good attitude about things like this. I would probably be crying in my cheerios. As it is, I'm just crying on my moving boxes...

I remember seeing something [on the Savvy voting page) about "members" being able to vote once daily. Was it possible to vote without having logged on as a member? If so, then it's possible that a ton of people voted for you but those votes didn't get recorded?

I demand a recount

Laura said...

I don't even know you but I made a huge effort to vote! I can't believe how disapointed I am. Honestly I hardly believe those other gals won over you, its seems weird! I demand a recount myself. I voted daily but never logged in, was I supposed to log in?
You must be meant to some other great things, keep up your good attitude!

Thanks for the shout out! I feel a little silly about it all, but also excited to get to say hi in blog person. Being a convert I especially enjoy hearing about women in the Church who can balance being traditional in values and somewhat un-traditional in everyday life. :) Bummer about the contest- something seems off. Thanks for the fun reading! :)

I'm sorensonfam by the way. :)

Jolene George said...

I am VERY bothered by this. I honestly don't think they really counted the votes because you have a HUGE support base and you SHOULD have won. Your video spanked all the other girls....grrr....so sorry!

I ran across your video from Heidi Swapp's blog and instantly wanted you to be my best friend!!! :) I thought you were soooo fun and energetic! I am totally bummed! I was looking forward to watching your show!- I practically had the tivo set. I will keep your blog bookmarked, be sure to update us all if you get another show in the future, I will for sure be "tuning in"!

jane said...

I can't believe it! Yours was clearly the best video-- the others were way behind in generating my interest in any way. Crazy!
