Here is the survey, where not only can you vote for your favorite writer but you can give some "atta boys" to the good people who share with you daily on this website.
Please vote today: Deadline: March 20 - midnight
Deadline is still extended (Fri. afternoon 3/21) because your dear editor is running way behind. If you want to vote do it now. It is not closed because I don't have the time to stop and analyze the results.
And besides this is one business where everyone knows how to extend a deadline.
