I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that particpated in my first ever blogfest. At the beginning of the week there were only four people signed up and I worried it was going to be a bit of a fail, but I ended up with thirteen great entries. I loved the way everyone approached the theme from their own angle and came up with unique pieces. There was a lot of variety- some chose to do short stories, others did poems, others reflected on what being fifty meant to them, while others wrote top fifty lists. Some of the posts I enjoyed the most were Ellie Garrat’s Dialogue scene, Arlee Bird’s short story, Madeline Maddock’s poem, Kittie Howard’s short story, Antimony’s fifty most important life lessons and holstersss 50 things to do before she dies. It was a very tough job to pick just one winner from such a great bunch (but unfortunately I only have one prize to give away). I did a lot of agonising, but in the end I made my decision.
And the winner of the notebook is….Holly Jones, for her post on 50 things she loves about the 1950s .
Holly must have spent so much time and effort thinking of all those things and finding pictures and comments to go with each of them, so I thought she deserved to win. Holly, please send me your address so I can post your prize.
Thank you to everyone who took part, and I hope you all enjoyed it even if you didn’t win. Don’t worry, there will be lots more chances to claim booty soon. Thanks to everyone that linked to my blogfest over the past week I now have closer to 100 followers, and when I get there I will be sure to have another giveaway, so stay tuned!
