OMG I was one of the winners for the 2011 Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving contest!
Amerence's Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving contest closed yesterday and the judges made their decisions. There were so many fantastic entries and creative ideas that have not only given me new blogs to read, but also some great ideas for further blog posts.
I checked my blog this morning to make sure my IntPiPoMo posted and then replied to all my comments and then went to work. After I had settled at work for a bit I looked at my phone and there were about 12 Twitter messages mentioning me, so I went to look and I had all these congratulations about being one of the winners!
So thanks to Amerence for organising such a great event that got a whole heap of people in the Blog Community involved (yay Blog Azeroth!), and for the judges for taking the time to read everyone's entries.
I was tied with Effraeti who did the most GORGEOUS story with her 5 year old daughter, which I thought was fantastically creative, hope I can do something like that my daughter when she's old enough. I am so excited that my entry was considered equal to hers, what a fantastic honour!
(I can't contain my enthusiasm!! I am still so very excited! OK Navi, calm down, enough with the exclamation marks...)
So coming in second was JDKennada's Billy Joel PianoMan rewrite for the competition which I thought was really clever and wish I'd thought to do that with my poem (the timing and spacing of the rhymes can be subjective and I was worried it wouldn't come through right). Go read and sing along!
