    Can I ask a favor?

    I wonder if I could be so cheeky as to ask a favor... My blog is (surprisingly) in third place as the top family travel blog on Babble. I honestly never thought I'd place this high, but now I'm wondering if I could possibly end up in second place??

    Would you please go to Top 25 Family Travel Blogs and click like for Family on Bikes? You don't have to register or anything - it'll just take a few moments.

    Thanks so much! (And if you don't mind passing the word on, I'd really appreciate it!)

    I voted again, but I don't know if it counted after the first time

    Nobody seems to know what the rules are - sometimes the site will let you vote again and sometimes it won't. We also don't know how long the voting will be open.

    Forget the cover graphics - you need to decide if the title of your book is about "ruins" or "runs"; both might be appropriate in their way for a travel book, but the former will likely be better for sales. Maybe John was just tired when he did the text.

    Well I was going to vote on merit and be "fair" then I saw your blog was about family biking. And I just so happened to barely start a family (5mo son). So, my vote is yours.

    Seriously, Nancy has provided some of the best cycle touring advice both here and on her blog. Anyone here that does not know that, is just not paying attention.

    There are enough BF members that we should rightly be able to push her blog to first.

    Family Bicycle Touring! Is there a better way to instill one's children that there is so much to see and experience in this world than the four corners around the neighborhood or the fantasy world of videogames? Nancy, you've taken them in an experience that undoubtedly has changed their view of the world and their notion of family bondness forever.

    Voted last night as soon as I saw your posting.
