Vote for my post on Mom Blog Network

Thoughts on Losing

So you may have noticed my big campaign over the past few days for the photo contest. Well it appears that we probably won't take home 1st place but I'm learning to be OK with that. I don't like losing but I also will NOT cheat. I will ask everyone I know and even offer them incentives to vote for me but I WILL NOT falsify votes. (And believe me I have more than the capability to vote as many times as I like.) I also feel horrible that the other contests thought we were cheating since I offered incentives on my other blog. (That's how contests work in the blogging community and I didn't realize the other contestants would perceive it has bribary.)

Joe and I do not have any additional money to spend on the expenses that would be involved in taking home 2nd or 3rd place so I'm not sure what we'll do with those winnings. But I'd rather have a clear conscious than get a free photo shoot unethically. But I know that every time I would look at my beautifully framed portrait I'd think about how I cheated.

Anyway, this post is mostly to remind myself that it's ok to come in 2nd or 3rd place.
