I was surprised to wake up this morning to find this post on my pal Melissa Chang’s “Urban Mix Plate” blog on HonoluluAdvertiser.com. I had to pinch myself cuz I though I was still dreaming and asked myself “why in the world would anyone want to see yours truly in a calendar?” Let alone a HotBloggerCalendar! YOWSER! I’m actually there with two other Hawaii nominees that I know of – Melissa Chang and Christa Wittmier.
So just how did all of this happen? It’s my understanding that my colleague Amy Hennessey is behind these nominations. Why? For Melissa and Christa it’s pretty obvious. As for nominating me, I’m still scratching my head. She must have an axe to grind with me or something (just kidding Amy). Anyway, I’ve already warned her that payback is going to be a “mother.”
Looking at my competition, it seems I really don’t stand a chance against guys like PR adventurist Peter Shankman and social media master Chris Brogan if we’re being voted on intellect, content, and good looks. But if it’s all about a proud father blogging about his family, the cutest 14-month-old boy on Earth, and life in Hawaii, I’d say I got a pretty damn good chance.
If for some crazy reason you want to vote for Melissa, Christa, or me, you can do so by visiting HotBloggerCalendar.com. Who knows, I could just be the first Mr. August. In the grander scheme of things, as long as Kelly and my mom vote for me, I’m happy! 😉
