Green Room - Week 13 - Day 6

I'm listening to a podcast about the 10th anniversary of Rob Has a Podcast. In it, he's talking about his original story (about getting it off the ground and finding his way). It's funny, because I didn't realize everything that was going on during that shaky first year. I came in somewhere in the middle of it, and recall "going back and listening to ALL the content". Back when you could still do that.

It makes me think back to my own time with Idol, and just how lucky I've been to keep this thing going for nearly 14 years! (By the time this season is over we should be around that mark)

We are nowhere near as big or successful as Rob. But then again, I also haven't been in a position to grow this into it's own business. It's still very much a hobby (at some points a second, or even first job. Depending on what's going on at the time! :D)

Every time I think "yeah, I might as well fold this up", something comes up and makes me keep going. So, thank you for that!

Part of what keeps me going is getting to read great entries like the ones in this week's poll: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1107708.html

I'm sure the ones in the Second Chance are good as well. But I haven't read all of them yet. The deadline to get those entries in is TONIGHT! https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1106778.html

Vote - Second Chance - Week 1

It's Week 1 for Second Chance.

Which means of course that it's time for a twist!

Of the 29 contestants who signed up, only 22 actually submitted an entry. Which means that the other 7 have been eliminated.

As for the rest, the entries are over at https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1106778.html

It's an email ballot this week. Note that I didn't say "contestant only". Anyone can vote. They just need to send a list of their favorites to clauderainsrm@gmail.com by Sunday, Feb 16th at 7pm EST.


The bottom 2 will be leaving us.

Good luck to everyone!
