Practicing Graceful Requests

I am practicing requests- simply asking for what I want. No apologies (don’t say sorry), no tweaking it to make it sound “cooler,” or “more marketable-” just asking. So here’s one example of what I wrote

Hi OBT!

My name is Tamara, and I was selected as a finalist for a boudoir photo-bachelorette party in a contest sponsored by a local photographer (http://nicolenichols.com/blog). If I get the most comments on her blog, myself and six girlfriends will win an amazing experience. I need all the help I can get, so if it is appropriate to post on this forum, I would like to request my OBT family please submit a comment on my behalf over at Nicole’s blog. I think she does fabulous pictures, and as I have been reading about others’ experiences with boudoir photos, this would be really good for all of my Maids of Awesome, but especially for me. I miss my girlfriends, I want them to meet each other, and my body image could use a boost! So OBT, if you feel led, please support me by submitting a comment that includes my name (Tamara) at http://nicolenichols.com/blog/boudoir/bachelorette-party-finalists/- I’ll let you know how it turns out!
