The good people at Typepad, the company that hosts this blog and The Elder Storytelling Place, gave me one, year-long blogging account to give away and last Monday I asked those who are interested to tell us, in the form of a haiku, why they want to start a blog.
The poems poured in by email and I had a great time reading them all. If it were up to me, everyone who entered the contest would win but alas, there can be only one. So...
The three finalists have been selected and today, readers, you get to vote for the winner.
The haikus are below. Please vote in the form where the choices are listed by the first line of each haiku. Voting is open until 6PM eastern U.S. time tomorrow – Tuesday 29 September. The winner will be announced on Wednesday.

between the races
Here's a deal for you:
If I become the winner
I'll blog in haiku
VOTING IS CLOSED EARLY DUE TO VOTE CHEATING. WATCH TIME GOES BY FOR AN ANNOUNCEMENT

It doesn't matter if you've done this before. Remind them again that you support a public option and include Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid your list of contacts. Here is how to find your Congress members and Harry Reid.
