Help me pimp jkOnTheRun

Vote for jkOnTheRun for best independent tech blog!!!

A few weeks ago a tech news web site, TechWeb, announced a contest open to choose the Best Independent Tech Blog. The contest is called the First Annual TechWeb Network Best Independent Tech Blog Readers Choice Awards (short name, isn't it?) I posted a call on my tech blog, jkOnTheRun, for readers to go to the TechWeb site and nominate jkOTR. It was all done as a lark and I thought it would be funny if a few people actually nominated my blog for the contest. I thought it would be funny if the TechWeb people said "who the heck is that?" The nomination period ran for a few weeks with the top ten nominated blogs to appear as finalists. The round of voting for the best blog out of the top ten is then done at the same TechWeb site starting November 1. Voting continues until November 15 at which time the top independent tech blog will be announced by TechWeb.

Much to my surprise jkOnTheRun made it into the top ten and I thank everyone who nominated the site! Now it gets serious as the voting has begun so I'm asking everyone to visit my blog and if you think it's good enough to vote for jkOTR in the TechWeb contest. Heck, truth be told I'd be happy with your vote even if you've never HEARD of my blog.

Please help me pimp my blog in the contest and help me knock off Slashdot, who also appeared (not surprisingly) in the top ten. Thank you for your support. :-D

James, my congrats for the 6th place of the Best Independent Tech Blog Contest!!

What voters said about it...

He's simply the best there is. Great site interface. Proper attribution to linked URLs. Current, timely updates, and good writing style. And he's a real end user of the technology he covers!

Excellent tech tips and advice. They beat the other guys in posting timely tech news.

Gives down to earth, useful information--including pictures--for those of us who aren't techies. I'm very interested in mobile computing and tablet PC's and learn from his thoughts on the subject.

Good coverage of mobile tech and the application of it in daily routine.

It is well written and gives good opinion.

Because on jkontherun I can read about the everyday use of new gadgets.
