Bang Bang (My Baby Shot ‘Em Down)

Holy Cow.

pMachine Shootout

The site you’re looking at right now placed 3rd in the first-ever pMachine Shootout. I’m so pleased, I’m beside myself — not necessarily because of the cash or prizes (which are cool) — but because my professional peers, people I respect, had amazing things to say about this site. While I’m certainly no shrinking flower and I don’t necessarily need accolades to vindicate my copy or design choices, I’m still humbled and warmed when something I’ve worked on is validated by other professionals. I was also pleased to see that some judges also placed my other two entries — Canadian Project Partners and Dr. Jeremy Levitt — in their personal top tens.

I may just do a little victory dance. :-)

Thank you, judges, for placing this site in high consideration. Thank you, pMachine for running this contest. I congratulate all the other winners and entrants! (I’m looking at you, Veerle — I’m glad you didn’t enter in the Commercial category, haha!) Good job, everyone.

Of course, thank you, visitors and RSS subscribers, for continually supporting my writing and design.

Add something to the conversation!

Major congrats – it’s always nice to have your abilities validated (no pun intended).

Now don’t go and blow all that money in one place. ;)

I think I can use it for groceries… or, new shoes. Food vs. Fashion — the eternal conundrum.

Congrats! I felt the bullets whistlin’ past ;)

Congratulations! I love your tagline on your site. (Side note: My name is Kellea and as a child I couldn’t say my name so I called myself Lea Lea so you’re especially cool in my book!) I’m the 3rd place winner in the Core division and man am I ever thankful to have been in that group because the competition in the personal section would have crushed me. Or as you put it shot me down smile Again, congratulations!! I vote for spending it on “fashion” and having someone else take you tou for food to celebrate!

Congrats Lea! Looks like Kellea beat me out— I came in 4th in core.

Which is actually a good thing— the hosting and license will all be used to furterh the project, and I won’t be tempted to buy those suede boots I have my eye on… ;)

Well, this is my first comment on your site, and I have to say that personally Lealea.net was one of the 2 best designed sites in the contest IMHO (the other one is “the fan”) so I think you really deserve the award! Congrats!

Congrats – I’m watching, reading, and -best of all – learning. While I tend to look to my elders to learn from, in this case, I’ll defer to my young’ins for inspiration.
