The last time the Shorty Awards ran my twitter feed was A BUZZ with updates, stats, campaigning, everything you would expect from a respectable internet contest.
I decided to run this year in the Green category when I saw Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus on the nominations list for Green, as well as Music, Actor, and several other categories.
Whether they were there by accident, or because their fans want to see their names prominently listed in every category, it seemed like more Green People needed to be on the list. As I write this, the current leader in Green with about 270 votes is Ian, an actor from The Vampire Diaries. I have no idea if he does any Greeniness or not, but right below him is a full time writer for TreeHugger, Discover, and Make.
You need a real twitter account to vote, and it takes really about 5 seconds. I have votes from cool people who read my stuff, friends, co-workers, another professional Green writer, and a professional Green analyst for Green tech.
Vote for me, or vote for them, or find the twitter ID of some other Green person and vote for them, and fill this category with something other than Fanboy posts for Lady Gaga.
You’ll be happy to know that I’m currently tied for 11th place, far ahead of Justin.
