Posted:So...here's the deal...

I bellydance, no secret. I aspire to be great at it someday.
Then there are the Bellydance Superstars...*le sigh*

Anyway, they have this thing going where supporters of BDSS wrote a short article to be voted on first by the dancers and then next by the public for the position of touring with them for one week as an Embedded Reporter.
Encouraged by my students and loved ones, and thinking I didn't have a snowballs chance in hell I entered....

And I am one of the 10 finalists.
I am shaking and in tears with joy.
And terrified no one will vote for me.

Here is the link
http://milescopeland.net/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/460104822/m/1141017001/r/#
br>
Mine is #7, and I would appreciate the vote. However, if you feel someone else is more deserving, please vote for that person....
seriously...you could help make a dream come true.

Thanks! ubbrollsmile

Leah, like with everything else, every vote counts.

I am so glad to hear that you also took the time and read them all, and still voted for me. I really appreciate the effort, and the honest support so much.


Thank you!

Posted:Dude, at the top of the page, it says to send an email to a certain address, with a certain title, saying which article you vote for.

Don't worry, it took me ages to find as well...
