Voting: "White Lies Belie a Darker Truth"

Honesty is the best policy no? Brave souls and intrepid beings have revealed their darker truths. Time to see who's bared all and who still harbours secrets.

Remember there are more than 30 entries this time round so when voting, list your Top 6 (yes, that's SIX) in the comments.

Confess all because there are 2.5 days to vote and the winner will be announced on the 29th. Vote with your heart, not your head. Confessions are hard.

*If you need assistance with voting, please check the Voting Section of the F.A.Q. and our Sample Vote.

    1. Jeff E
    2. hvnhell
    3. jelly
    5. tara r

  7. Would you please start saying when the voting time is up, instead of how much time there is. It never seems to advance. (?) -J

  8. The voting time is up at 7:00 am EST on the 28th.

    I dislike GMT-5 and how we state that as well.

  9. Also remember, while not mandatory (yet --> #jellyswishfulthinking), 10thDoM HIGHLY encourages comments to be left on each entry so that we are encouraged that you have read...

    For the record, I did (reluctantly and begrudgingly #jellyreneges) read ALL entries (this will be evident in my vote #jellyhatesjeff) but did not comment on any past entry C on a single blog as my own little form of protest of what I feel are excessive entries by single bloggers.
