There's only a few days now before the winner's crowned Ms Twitter UK. To put it in perspective, the last winner of this was one of The Corrs and the winner of the American one was Mariah Carey http://www.mariahconnection.com/mariah-carey-crowned-ms-twitter-usa
Celebrities have done big publicity campaigns and harnessed huge fanbases to do well in these competitions. Can an unpublished author really win this thing? Can I beat 'Queen of Twitter' Lily Allen?
The celebrity publicity machines will start whirring over the next few days. I have no major media contacts - okay, a few journalists follow me on twitter but I don't have anywhere like the influence these guys have. The tools I have at my disposal are: my writing and you.
Need Your Help
I've been working really hard campaigning for votes and tired myself out. Last night I had an allergic reaction and this morning I woke up with a pulse of 107 which I couldn't calm down for ages. This happens sometimes with my health condition if I've overdone it and not slept enough and it's something I can get back under control (it's normal again now) but it's a warning and I need to take a couple of days off to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Of course, this happens on the day they put the countdown clock up doesn't it? Not great timing. Health's the most important thing though so I need to lean on my online chums a bit for a couple of days. If any of you feel able to put up a post about the Ms Twitter UK contest or can think of another social network where you can raise a bit of interest (facebook etc) then you'd be doing me a huge favour.
If anyone needs to find my different online places, they're all 'my name dot com' followed by the place or action. For example:
Ms Twitter UK http://rebeccawoodhead.com/vote
This Blog http://rebeccawoodhead.com/blog
twitter http://rebeccawoodhead.com/twitter etc.

Hope that helps. Thanks everyone for all your support and fabulousness. I'm going to take a couple of days off now so I can be fresh for the last few days of the contest.
See you soon and thanks again,
