Up to this point I have been very mum on the blog about our upcoming election, all the while remaining very, very passionate about it in my everyday life. Until now, I have only proudly displayed my support, in the form of a badge for Obama and later for Obama/Biden.
But that is about to change.
There is nothing more important to me this week than the outcome of this race.
That is why I have made the following decision when it comes to my blog.
From now until Wednesday, November 5th, the blog will be all about the election, nothin' but the election.
Yep, it's that important to me!
You may have noticed that I have placed a countdown clock for the election on the blog. I have also placed a twitter update widget on the blog, as I will be twittering election news, voting problems, election results and any other news worthy shenanigans until the final vote is counted and a winner is announced.
Follow me on the blog and on twitter, won't you?
Cherrye and I will also be postponing Travel Tip Tuesday on the 4th, in honor of Election Day.
So, if you are as passionate as I am, please tune in!!
If not, well, I can promise that we'll be back to our regular programing, with much more on Quebec City, Montreal, Travel Tip Tuesday, Travel Photo Friday and an upcoming interview and book give-away right around the corner.
Today we are excited as we are heading out to our local Obama headquarters, fully-charged cell phones in hand, to volunteer to make calls to battleground states and to remind people to vote!!
My Dad has taken it a step further and has travelled to the battleground state of Pennsylvania, to stay with relatives and volunteer to knock on doors today!!
Whoohoot for Daddy-o!!!
I will update you on our experience tomorrow.
I encourage all of you to volunteer in the upcoming days. If you are interested, here is a link.
Please help get out the vote- and vote yourself!!
And just in case you didn't get to see Obama's 30 minute infomercial, you can watch it here.
