365 Challenge: Day 240 – Vote

Vote: formal indication of a choice between two or more candidates or courses of action, expressed typically through a ballot or a show of hands or by voice


As with 100% of all my other posts, I don’t usually discuss politics on my blog. I’m not going to today either, but I will encourage everyone to vote today in the US. Our ancestors fought hard for it. It can make a difference down the line. You have some level of control and power. To keep this light and friendly, today’s 365 Daily Challenge word is vote but for three (3) different reasons:

  1. It’s Election Day in the USA, so please do your best to vote.
  2. Thank you to everyone who wrote in my book for the Goodreads 2017 Choice Awards. Round 2 kicked off today and unfortunately, I did not receive enough votes to get added to any of the 20 categories. It was truly an honor to hear from so many friendly bloggers who told me they nominated me or even pushed me to throw a post out there to notify everyone it was even an option. That said, please be sure to check out Round 2 on Goodreads and VOTE for your favorite books.
  3. About ten days ago in my post on ‘Tea’ we had a sort-of-vote on which types of tea I should try. I promised to compile the responses together, which I’ve done both in the original post as an update (click Tea to see it), but I’ve also listed them all below. I will try a few over the next couple of weeks and let you know what I thought. Thank you to everyone for such great responses. You are all awesome!

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

    • Thank you! I was a bit disappointed and tried to figure out which 5 made it in. I thought it might make me feel better if they had hundreds of reviews more than me. It was a very minimal chance.. my book was out for 1 of 12 months and is just starting to get noticed. The others were probably for the whole year! I appreciate it.

  1. I thought you said you weren’t going to be blogging for a few breaths…yet here you are, filling us in on the tallies. I trust you are happy with your energetic approach to social media. I must rest long and often, as I literally swim with the silver surfers. Keep it up, my fearless friend.

  2. Winter spice and Russian Caravan are on my list and I must check those out! I can’t have caffeine, which limits me on voting, but Detox is wonderful. Night time and Relax by Pukka are staples right now… Yogi’s Egyptian Licorice is another fave. 💕😊

    Sad the book didn’t make it, but with it being so late in the year, that’s probably why. It certainly deserves to be up there IMO. I’m a little over half way now. 😁
