And Now, a Word from Our Monarch...

In apparently his first official proclamation that did not involve chicken soup, peanuts, or sushi, the Winter Monarch has requested that we all vote for him in the 5th Annual Mashable Awards, in which he is one of seven finalists nominated for "Must-Follow Athlete on Social Media." Which, as I mentioned previously, is KIND. OF. A. BIG. DEAL.

Mashable, a social media / news site, gets more than 50 million page views per month, and has been named by Time Magazine as one of the top 25 blogs on the Internet. Anastasia Pryanikova points out that "Mashable is huge in social media and technology: 20 million monthly unique visitors and 4 million social media followers." Plus I think he's the only Winter Monarch ever to be recognized by Mashable. So that's awesome.    

He's up against some tough competition from Yuna Kim and John Cena, among others, but hey--we're really good at voting! We can do this! 

He's also in some amazing company: As Megan Gusinski notes, finalists in other categories include The Trevor Project, NOH8, GLAAD, and Ellen Degeneres, so there's lots of other great stuff to vote for while you're on Mashable's site.

You can vote once per day from each of your Twitter and Facebook accounts (so if you have more than one account, please vote from them all!).

Voting ends on Friday, December 16, and the winners will be announced on Monday, December 19. Just click the graphic below or at the top righthand side of the blog to be taken directly to the voting page for Johnny. 


Random Thanksgiving  Leftovers

Thanks to sharp-eyed Tatiana Edrenkina for spotting this. And I totally agree. According to Macy's press release, Joan was officially the "Snow Queen" in last year's parade. I personally am pleased that her reign has ended, and that we are now under the glittery guidance of the Winter Monarch. Let's take another  look at him, shall we? vote

And now, a little perspective... I love this shot. 
How perfect that he's in front of Toys R Us 
on a giant rocking horse--and wow at how big 
that thing really is...

Bonus video via The Advocate, from their post titled:
"Possibly the Most Beautiful Ad for Marriage Equality We've Seen." 
The video was produced by an equality group in Australia, 
where nearly two-thirds of voters favor legalizing
gay marriage, according to The Advocate
but prime minister Julia Gillard remains firmly opposed. 
I agree with The Advocate
This is one of the most eloquent illustrations I've seen 
of this simple concept: Love is love.
Please pass it on.

Been voting steadily for Johnny, though I remain a fan of Yuna's.

Wish that these awards voting periods were shorter.
