Contest Follow-Up...

We just wanted to thank all of you that took the time to register and vote on TheKitchn.com for The Homies Awards and "Best Blog from Abroad". At 5am when voting ended we were in 5th place with 104 votes incredibly all thanks to you!! However....come a few hours later when they posted the final results they had rolled back the voting tally to 12-midnight and we were in 6th place with 83 votes so did not make it the next round. (Maybe the powers that be didn't like the results.) When I contacted the editor she said there was a "glitch" in the voting...

I'm not writing this as an angry bitter email but more to thank you all for stepping up and trying to help us!  We never expected to win, but to have been in the finals would have been pretty cool for our little blog.  Not to mention its a total bummer because we had the votes thanks to YOU! Many blog readers & facebook fans have contacted us about the contest and wondered why we weren't in the next round...I don't know what to tell you - maybe email the editor or comment on the contest page...

But for now - we will keep going forward, trying to make our blog, photos, videos and stories better with every post! And to hell with those silly blog contests - anyway! Most of the time the "Best Food Blogger" category has more photographers than actual chefs - so I guess we don't fit the criteria after-all.
