First off, thanks to everyone for voting! The voting, when all was said and done, amounted to 682 ballots cast!! That's awesome, especially considering the fact that (unfortunately) I bet a bunch of people who voted in the beginning did not recast their votes. So yeah, that's a great amount of votes to get (next time, though, I'd love to crack 700!).
As to the time frame, I'm thinking this coming Monday will be the beginning. As to how long it will last - we shall see! ;)
Finally, if you would like to write an explanation for why you picked your top pick number one, you can e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your pick makes the Top 100, I will probably use your description!!
