I'm one day late in asking you for your vote because I wanted to create this little tutorial for voting on Spoonflower. I have heard it is not so obviously straightforward (Hi, Mom!).
I did some screen shots and marked them up with bright blue to guide your attention. The first image is what you will find when you click this link to vote. Click on the panel that says "VOTE NOW" which sends you to the following screen:
You'll see a panel on the right side of the screen with a button that says, "Vote for your favorites." Click there.
This next window has instructions at the top.
Right below that it says Page 1 of [whatever], so now you know what you're getting into!
You scroll down and look at the designs. If you don't see any you want to vote for, click the little gold 'next' arrow at the bottom left of the screen.
When you find something utterly lovely, as in a design by yours truly, you click on it and an ugly green box appears around it.
Once again, scroll to the bottom of the page to find the 'next' arrow.
Continue through the pages, scrolling down to and clicking on the 'next' arrows (selecting designs as you go, if you wish) until you get to the very last one.
It will ask you to enter the verification code, after which you click the button to REVIEW your votes.
No, you are not done yet! The last screen shows the designs you voted for. At this time you may deselect any that you've changed your mind about. When you're settled on your final vote, go to the bottom again and enter another verification code. Don't forget to click that last button to SUBMIT your votes! It will tell you if you are successful.
I know! Quite a commitment! That's why I extra-appreciate every single vote!
PS. It took me, literally, at least eight times longer to lay out this post than it took to write and organize. The image problem has just about pushed me over the edge this time! I ended up putting all of these images in one long, tall file. This is a visual blog! This has to work for me without being such a time sink! I've scoured the Internet on how to control image placement in Blogger, but there doesn't seem to be anything. Maybe it's a bug. Anyway, now I suppose I must begin research on finding a new blog host. If there happens to be anyone out there reading this who has any advice at all, I would be so forever grateful!!
