I Need Your Help!

April 2, 2011

I was selected as a semi-finalist for YouTube’s NextUp Program and need your help!  To vote, you can go here and do so now.

The program would give me a chance to advance my video editing/production skills. Twenty-five winners will be chosen and I’ve already made it through to the second round, leaving just 145 of us.  I need you to vote for me to get through to the next round which will then be decided by the judges.  I personally hate these competitions.  I feel like it’s a popularity contest and I never win when it comes down to it because either I hate asking people to vote or simply, I have less followers/reader/fans.  Hoping you might reblog this, Tumblrs, here is why I am asking this time for your vote:

The YouTube NextUp program is helping to develop the next generation of leading YouTube Partners who currently have fewer than 300,000 subscribers through funding, hands-on training, promotion and exclusive mentoring.  This could be me!

Here is what I could win if you take 2 seconds to vote for me:

  • Earn $35,000 to advance their YouTube careers and content projects.
  • Attend a 4-day YouTube Creator Camp in May in NYC with stars and industry experts.

Some of you may think I’m pretty handy when it comes to video skills, but truth be told, there is so much I want and can learn.  So please, please, vote for me.  I promise I won’t ask for another contest vote.  Voting goes until April 8th.  If you are reading this on Tumblr, won’t you reblog for a fellow Tumblr to excel on YouTube??

And now for some healthy breakfast inspiration, here is what I’m loving these days:

Greek Yogurt with Chia Seeds, Ezekial Cereal and fruit.  This past week I had grapefruit most days but I decided to go with my beloved Mango given this happy start to my day.

Tomorrow I will be venturing down to NYC for a couple of business meetings, visiting the Next New Networks offices and trying Physique 57 finally! I’m very excited to say the least.
