Please Help Us Win The Linksys Geek Dad Cool Contest!

Vote for Ania  from Albuquerque!
Entering sweepstakes has always been my hobby. I'm so excited to  be a finalist in The Linksys Geek Daddy Cool Contest! I wrote a short essay about what we call  "Zoe TV" My husband created a website that broadcasts live video from a wi-fi webcam that points at Zoe's play area. This way our family and friends can sign up and watch her having fun and develop. It's our new family tradition. My parents haven't met Zoe yet so they check the website at least twice a day :-)

In order to win we need everyone's daily votes! The voting starts on February 29th and ends on March 19th. The prize ($10,000 Best Buy gift card towards creating the ultimate hi-tech home) would be a dream come true! You can each give us a maximum of 20 votes if you can do it every day.

You can find the link to the contest here.  In order to vote for me you need to have a Facebook account and Like the page. You will be asked to fill in a quick registration form (name, email, phone number - everyone who votes will be entered to win 1 of 10 Linksys E4200v2 routers). You can vote once a day and please do so!
Please vote for Ania J.'s  entry:

"Go have a rest and I'll babysit Zoe" says baby's grandma looking at her computer screen in Poland and the clock set to Albuquerque time. Twice a day I put Zoe into her play area. Her grandparents sign in to a website streaming live video from a wi-fi webcam that runs its own internal web server and uses DDNS to always ensure the Internet has access. "Zoe's TV" brings us all closer, provides new conversation topics, encourages us to improve computer skills and learn new languages. Watching the "Daily Dose of Zoe ", we are waiting for her first step!

Voting contests are hard to win and this is a lifetime opportunity for us. 
Thank you very much for taking time to vote for us!

Napisalam o tym jak nasi rodzice moga ogladac Zoe przez Internet. Zeby wygrac olbrzymia nagrode (10,000 dolarow) musze zebrac najwiecej glosow. Tutaj jest link do strony konkursowej. Trzeba polubic (Like) strone. Vote now- zaglosuj. Pojawi sie okienko z zapytaniem o zezwolenie na aplikacje (zeby sie link do konkursu u was na stronie z boku pojawil aby ulatwic codzienne klikanie) ale to nie jest wymog. Powinna sie otworzyc strona z 10 zdjeciami i krotkimi opisami. Moje to Ania J  z Albuquerque (zdjecie jak w profilu Facebook). Mozna oddac glos codziennie klikajac na VOTE. Powinna sie zmienic liczba glosow i guzik bedzie nieaktywny az mina 24 godz.

Trzeba odfajkowac dwa okienka ze sie zgadza zeby przysylali materialy promocyjne (sorry ze taki wymog). Ten formularz wypelnia sie tylko raz. SUBMIT znaczy wyslij, zatwierdz. Ah! I jak sie zaglosuje to jeszcze jest zapytanie czy sie tym chce podzielic na swojej stronie (SHARE), ale dla mnie to nie zadzialalo. Sposrod glosujacych sponsor wylosuje 10 osob ktore dostana ich router (komp.) (Dzieki serdeczne !!! Prosze dajcie mi znac jak bedziecie w jakims konkursie to bede glosowac :-)

  5. My mom totally cracked me up this morning. She went to our cousin to guide her how to vote for me. Remember, it's in a foreign language for them! She remembered me translating her what to do :-) She also convinced our aunt to open a Facebook account :-) Oh my, I was close to tears.

  6. And let's not forget about my dad! The first thing in the morning he does is to turn a computer on to see if we are on a webcam :-) I am so proud of him because he finally stated to like the technology! The right motivation is crucial ;-)
