Friendly Reminder Friday

Sometimes with our busy lives, it is hard to remember all the tasks we have to complete in a day. Personally, I have so many calendars that one of my major challenges is to remember where I wrote the latest appointment or event. Even my cell phone has a calendar, Quick Office, One Note, and a Task list. Still, I can manage to forget things big and small, important or trivial, must do or wishy-washy.

I can understand how people forget to vote for Early Onset Alzheimer's blog in the Healthline contest. The contest began December 21 and runs until February 13. I got a late start since I never saw the email until the contest was well underway. We rose rapidly through the ranks and I was thrilled to make it to the top ten since it's easier for people to find you on the first page. The blog skyrocketed to 2nd place and we stayed there for quite a while. Then, other blogs started getting hundreds of votes each day and we've dropped to 3rd.

A lot of people voted one time and thought they were finished. Others kept forgetting to vote or couldn't find the link to vote when they remembered. Some of my family and friends tried to vote on their phones and just couldn't get them to work

Early Onset Alzheimer's blog has more than 100 visitors each day. I realize that some of you are already voting, but a lot aren't. Voting has to be done via Facebook or Twitter and many of you don't use either.

If you want to vote, and don't have a Facebook account and don't want to open one, you can easily open a Twitter account. All you need is an email address. Just go to and you can open an account in a matter of minutes. You can go to the contest link and vote. Who knows you may even have some fun with it!

Consider this your friendly Friday reminder to vote for the only Alzheimer's blog in the top ten! To make it really easy for you to vote, just CLICK HERE to go to the contest voting site. Once you are there, click the "Vote Now" button following Early Onset Alzheimer's blog. Then, a few things might happen. It might ask you to sign into Facebook or Twitter again and if you are already signed in you can just X out of that. You may be asked to choose Facebook or Twitter. You may have to scroll around on the screen to find the different options. Then, it will ask you if you want to post to your timeline. You can type in a message and post to your timeline to encourage others to vote. You will get a message that says, "Thank you for voting" and you are done.

You can vote once a day, and your vote is greatly appreciated!
