TODAY MAKES 500! I can’t even believe it! FIVE HUNDRED POSTS!
Thank you to the readers who submitted blog titles to the contest. I was both impressed and amazed at some of the selections.
Match Game, a post from July 2015, had the most votes! With almost–literally–500 articles to choose from, I wasn’t sure ANY would have multiple votes. I didn’t ask for a reason, just a title, so that’s all I got, repeatedly. This choice was very surprising–how surprising was it? Exactly.
There were several with multiple votes, including Permission to Cry. One person left the comment, “I find myself sharing this advice with others. Too often, it seems.”
Another that received a couple of mentions was Sweet Nellie, an emotional ode to a beloved pet. A simple one word comment accompanied one submission, *sob*.
A post with two votes was Monday the Metaphor, from 2014. “Momdays! I love it!”
There were a handful of titles that were selected individually, including the drawing winner who picked Metaphors, a recent post, and left this comment, “Excellent post about metaphors. Talented, articulate, enthusiastic Mary Lamphere clearly revealed in your post.”
But I swear, I used a random name picker for the results.
CONGRATULATIONS, CCW! Your prize is in the mail.
(please let me know when you receive it!)
This 500th post is also a final reminder to submit to next Monday’s post, Gifts and Gratitude. With your help, we are going to end this year on a thankful and appreciative note. ❤
