It’s my Birthday on Saturday, and what I would really love to get is just a few minutes of your time.
As you can see from the banner on the left side of the site, it’s the time of year when many local businesses are asking for your support in the Advocate Best of New Haven Reader’s Poll.
Orangectlive.com has been a registered business in the town of Orange since May 2012. Since then, “Orange Live, the best source for 24/7 news in Orange CT” has published more than 3,000 stories, keeping you abreast of everything that’s happening in town without the benefit of a staff.
Orangectlive.com (along with the Orange Live Facebook Page) is a one-person show, photos, meetings, business stories, police and fire coverage, school updates, sports, even the ads are all done by just one Yia Yia — that’s what my granddaughter calls me — even when my computer crashed in December, you still got your news.
All I ask is that every one of the 1,000 people who visit the site today and unique visitors who come on until next Wednesday, take 10 minutes to visit the “Best Of” Poll page, Fill in the voter registration information and click “Vote” to begin, then please vote for orangectlive.com in two categories • Best Local Blogger and • Best Hyperlocal News Site. Both can be found in the Media and Education section.
You must vote in at least 10 categories. But, if you love Orange, there are plenty of Orange businesses and personalities from which to choose. Look for the Orange Ale House, Material Girls, NuVita, Redfish Grill, Georgina Hair Studio, Kaoud Oriental Rug … Even First Selectman Jim Zeoli is listed under the People and Places section.
One ballot per person. They count ballots from this website and paper ballots from this week’s CTNow newspaper. You may submit a paper ballot or an online ballot, but not both.
Online voting ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 5th, 2014.
Thank you so much for your time!
