Live Real. Eat Real.

Fifth, Not First

Fifth place, y’all.  I’m in fifth place over at Shape.com’s Best Healthy Eating Blog competition.  They have apparently fixed whatever issue it was that allows unlimited voting, so one is all you get.  For those of you who have voted, thank you!  Help me move up in rank by continuing to spread the word.  Remember – I’m the only paleo/primal/real food blogger on the list, so this is a pretty big deal (to me, at least).

I sincerely appreciate everyone’s efforts to help me attain first place, but it looks like Skinny Taste is going to take it, which really isn’t surprising.  Her blog has had a lot of exposure (she’s been featured on Glamour.com, Gourmet Live and FineCooking.com) and she’s got the Weight Watchers crowd.  But you know what’s really funny?  Remember all those A-List bloggers I was worried about?  I’ve left them in the dust.

Wow.

For more Spins about “firsts”, head on over the Sprite’s Keeper.  Why, yes – I was having trouble with the subject matter; why do you ask? :P

And if you haven’t voted yet, you can by clicking here.  I wonder how I can get Mark Sisson to mention this…

I did notice that those way out in the lead were that way when unlimited voting was allowed. Congrats on fifth place, but just knowing you have one twentieth of a voice in the crowd of misguided “health food” blogs is a big win for the good guys. At least there is one other “real foods” blog, but some of those listed are a far cry from “healthy” blogs.

Dude, you’re beating The Pioneer Woman! That’s huge! (Of course, with all the flour and sugar she uses, I would never classify her as “healthy”.) I believe in you!
You’re linked! And number 1!

Patty says:

I voted! I hope you win. I’ll get my husband to vote when he gets home! Good luck!

Lisa says:

At least you’re beating the Eat Nothing But Steamed Celery woman. Fat free vegan indeed. Bar All Avocados From The Gates!

MamaBadger says:

You’re the only food blog I read, so you’re number one as far as I’m concerned! If I ever get to posting this week, you’re in it!

I noticed Ree didn’t put anything about it on her site.
So glad you’re doing well and getting exposure – that’s really all that matters!

Nancy says:

I was thinking the same thing, how do you get a mention on MDA? Maybe Mark would put you in the weekend links post on Sunday. That would be huge.

Chowstalker says:

Jan, send Mark an email and ask him! Seriously, he is that kind of guy!! But it may take him a while, so send that email asap. Maybe you should make a badge that we could share on our sites that sends people to the voting page? Just a thought!

i voted again today. i am just pissed u are behind a fat free vegan blog.

Erica says:

I’ve voted about 4 times now. The site let me vote twice in a row, so I did. This is important! We LCHF/Paleo/Primal people need to get the word out more.

CaJoh says:

Even though you may not be first in that contest, you are first in our book. Thanks for sharing.

Erin says:

It let me vote again, so I did. So cool that you are getting this sort of exposure. Well deserved, my friend. xoxo

Peg says:

Does it matter that you are #1 with US? That’s the most important win of all!
