Vote UrbanCincy – Best of Cincinnati

UrbanCincy has been nominated for the annual Best of Cincinnati awards for Best Blog for the second year in a row. Last year UrbanCincy finished in the Top 5 (near bottom of page) without lobbying for a single vote and without even knowing about the voting until the last week or so. I think we can do better this year now that we have nearly 2 years under our belt and have grown as a website and information source.

For some reason we’re listed as ‘Urban Cincinnati (’ in the Public Eye section instead of the regular UrbanCincy moniker we use. Either way, go on and make your selections for the bests in Cincinnati and vote UrbanCincy as the best blog. We have also been written in as an option for best website, so go ahead and vote for us there too.

While I’m at the whole self-promotion thing…go on and join the UrbanCincy Facebook Page if you haven’t already. You can comment on the site, what we cover, get periodic updates, and view some Cincinnati photo galleries.

If you’re not into Facebook then you can simply subscribe to the site’s article and comments feeds so that you stay up-to-date with everything on UrbanCincy via your mobile device. You can do this by selecting your desired feed type in the drop down menus in the left-hand column second from the top listed under ‘Subscribe.’ Or you could follow this blog through your Google account for a less intrusive and easy way of showing your support.

Sorry for all the self-promoting, but I figured if I was going to do it I might as well get it all out in one post.
