Most of you who follow me for longer then a year recognize this logo… and the story behind it.
For those who don’t know, a brief history (more posts will follow later!)
From Christmas to New Year, the Radio 2 team presents the 2000 favorite songs of the listeners. Music! 24 hours a day! A few years back, I started my ‘top 2000 blog party‘ in the slipstream of the top 2000. I created art every day inspired by a song from the list. Everyone was invited to play along and create to the music – and I posted all the submissions on my blog. What success it was! Even the top 2000 people picked up my ‘party’ and came to film me, the video can still be seen here on youtube.
This will be the eight time that I host this artful and musical blog party, and I know for sure that a lot of participants look forward to it as much as I do!
More information and ‘the rules to participate’ will be posted on my blog once the ‘official list’ is out… that list is being composed this week and that is where today’s blogpost comes in!
Vote for your fave songs from November 25 – December 2
I made a ‘tutorial’ for all my English-speaking fellow-artists who want to play along… the fun starts right here as you can now vote for your favorite songs to get in the list! The highest ranked 2000 songs will be played on the radio/Internet in the last week of 2016.
Look at the images below to see how it works – then go to the TOP 2000 VOTING WEBSITE and find your fave songs to vote on.
(You can click on the images to enlarge!)
The home (start) screen looks like this – all the songs are listed in alphabetical order.
(you may get a pop-up window with ‘tips how to vote’ – just close that window)
You can vote for a maximum of 20 songs from the given list and add a maximum of 15 “Free choices” (songs that are not on the list or songs that you ‘have left’ once you made 20 choices.)
When you choose/click on a song you get to a window that shows your choice.
Click “Voeg toe” (= “add”)
You can keep track of the choices you already made by clicking “Je stemlijst” (“your votes”)
When you click on “Vrije keuze” (“Free choice”) you go to this screen
where you can fill out the artist, songtitle and a motivation.
“Opslaan” = “save”
To finish, go to your list to check it one last time. Satisfied about your choice?
Click on “Stuur lijstje in” = “Send your list”
This form will pop up for you to fill out (see translation on image below)
The next page, after you clicked ‘send’, is a survey.
You can skip that page… and get to this last page.
The last page: ‘Thank you for voting!’
NOTE: You are not completely finished yet!
To confirm your vote you will have to click the link in the email that is sent to you!
Go to your inbox, click the (first) link in the email and your vote will be confirmed.
Voting closes on Friday, December 2
I’ll explain all about the top 2000 blog party as soon as the ‘official list’ is announced!
In the meantime, feel free to grab my top 2000 blinkie from the side menu if you’re planning to participate.

The party started also in my Top 2000 Facebook Group.

Excellent explanation for us Americans except the last page where you click “I am not a robot” has 2 long things I can’t interpret that I could check mark. What do those say in English? Thank you so very much! -Barbara Hauenstein
Oooh, I was a bit afraid that could cost a problem… When I clicked the ‘i am not a robot’ I get pictures and had to check the photos that showed ‘traffic signs’ but they may vary the photos… I recommend you use a translate site to type the question (I used http://www.vertalen.nu/zinnen ) Good luck!
