Photography is Not a Crime is maintaining a tight lead in the Sun-Sentinel Best Overall Blogs competition with only two days left of voting.

I urge my readers to take the time to vote, even if you’ve already voted because this contest allows people to vote daily.

The second place blog, The Phinsider, is making a serious effort to come back and they have the drive, will and readers to do so.

And we shouldn’t write off the third and fourth place blogs either, especially Worst Pizza (whom I met the other day and is a very nice guy), which has moved up several spots in the last few days.

In fact, it was only last week that PINAC was in ninth place, so anything can happen here.

Some of my readers are probably wondering why I am making such a big deal about this. Well, when you blog day in and day out about the same subject and don’t get paid a dime for it, little things like this make it seem rewarding.

For me, winning the contest was never about the $100 gift certificate from Target. And it’s not necessarily about the bragging rights, although that part is fun.

For me, winning the contest is about further establishing my blog as a legitimate source of information about police abuses. It’s about making more people aware of these incidents that occur on a daily basis.

It’s about sending a message to police and judges that people are paying attention.

So if you’ve already voted, then please click here and vote again.
