As many of you know, I participated in a WordPress Blog Challenge that was hosted by Swift Expression. The challenge was quite a task and unlike many other “Blog Challenges” out there this one is not something you win and pass on to another like a chain letter. It is based solely on the writer’s entry and the readers responses to it. A donation from Swift Expression will be given to a charity of the winners choice.
Today voting begins (you can cast your vote up until Dec. 29th, 2012) and of course I would like to win. I put a lot of effort into this challenge and was very surprised with the unforeseen journey it took me on. Please take a moment and look it all over and then vote for Cheri Speak HERE. Of course, if there are other entries you find more worthy vote for them instead.
I had to write five (5) different pieces based on categories that were laid out in the challenge. Here are the links to my entries:
Letter to a Ghost; I had to write a letter to someone who is no longer living or deeply gone from my life. I wrote a letter to my Mom who passed away a little over a year ago. My entry is here… “LETTER TO A GHOST“
Visual Tribute; we had to put together and photograph a visual tribute to someone or something. I chose my Mom since I had just done the Letter to a Ghost. This is 1000 words (exactly) in a picture. My entry is here… “A PICTURE OF A THOUSAND WORDS“
Guilt; a question was posed as to whether guilt was important and why. My entry is here… “GUILT“
3-2-1; I had to write what I was afraid of and why in 3 mins. My entry is here… “I WAS HERE“
This is Me; I had to write the first paragraph of my life story beginning somewhere between birth and 3 yrs old. My entry is here… “THIS IS ME“
Thank you for reading my Blog. Having readers is a privilege I do not take for granted. I would have no voice if it were not for all of you. If there is ever something you would like me to write about I am always open to my readers suggestions. Also, in building our community here I am always grateful for your liberal use of the “share” buttons below each of my stories or articles. Again thank you!!
