Time is running out to vote for Critical Hits! Voting ends Saturday Night!

09nomineeYou only have until the end of Saturday, 8/1 to vote for us in the 2009 Ennie Awards for Best Website. (Remember, you don’t need to vote for any other category if you don’t want to, and 1 is best!) We just reached 1500 RSS feed subscribers today, and so if we got all of you (plus our regular readers who don’t subscribe to the feeds, plus some random passerbys) to vote for us, I think we’d have to a shot against our behemoth competitors.

We’ve already told you about all the endorsements we’ve gotten from game designers, bloggers, and even a celebrity. But I also prefer to let our work speak for itself: check out our interviews, reviews, news, gaming advice, and much more in our archives, as well as our About page that lists our “best of.” We’ve been running for nearly 4 years now (longer than any of the other nominees) so have tons of material for every RPG fan.

Additionally, we were one of the co-founding sites of the RPG Bloggers Network, and have toiled many, many hours to operate it and promote it, so a vote for us (as well as for Mad Brew Labs) is a vote for the Network and independent RPG blogging.

Finally, to lift from Geek’s Dream Girl’s list of three legitimate and three illegitimate reasons to vote for us, Bartoneus & Sucilaria have a puppy named Freyja:


If we don’t win, the puppy will be sad. You wouldn’t want to make the puppy sad, would you?

So please vote for us now and many, many thanks to those who have already done so. I promise, this is the last full post devoted to the Ennies (until we win or lose).
