That's kind of what this feels like at this point, but I'm pressing on.

Here's the deal: I need your help.

It's as simple as that.

The company that I work for is having a contest. They had all three of the people on my "team" write a post for the company blog last month. We're supposed to promote it however we can, and after one month whoever has the most unique views wins. The prize is money. Money that I'll probably use to fund a few Old News Records projects because (fingers crossed) Craft Lake City announces who made the cut for this year's festival next weekend. I had a lot of fun last year and I want to do it again. if I'm accepted, I've got a few tricks up my sleeve that will be amazing if they pan out.

Also, there's a Salt Lake City Comic-Con in the works and I'm trying to get a booth there, too. Lots of stuff planned this summer.

But more importantly - I have a team now. I also have a cubicle and squeaky chair (that I didn't know about until yesterday because I can't hear it). I like the people that I work for/with and I'm pretty excited that I don't have to lie about how good Eggs Benedict is every day (that's down to just once or twice a week).

Back to the contest. It ends on May 15 (next Wednesday) and I really want to win. I'm ahead right now, but that doesn't matter. These other two might have a few tricks up their sleeve and I'm not taking any chances.

Here's the link:

The topic was incredibly broad, so I just sort of used the HIGH FIDELITY mixtape process and tried to apply it to building websites. Sure.

Here's where you come in.

Go to that link. Then share it. Spread it around via Twitter, Facebook, email, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Linkedin, MySpace (if that's still a thing), your blog or whatever other social media site you use that I don't know about and you're trying to keep a secret. There's a little menu to the left of the post. Use that and blow it up.

I honestly don't care if you actually read it or not. Open it in a new tab, ignore it for a few minutes then close it. As long as it registers as a click, I don't give a shit what happens at this point.

I'm really proud of it and all that, but at this point I just want to win.

Help me do that and I promise that when you come visit me at Craft Lake City or Salt Lake Comic Con (hopefully, fingers crossed) I'll give you a kick-ass pin or something. A hug. A kiss. Whatever the hell you want.

Just help me win this thing.

Thanks everyone. After this is over, I can get back to showing you a bunch of stuff you never knew you wanted to know. And bitching about movies. I tend to do that a lot.
