  1. It's not letting me enter your lovely contest because I don't have a blog. Do I have to have a blog?

  2. oooooooooooo I can't wait I just have a feeling I going to win this because I want it that bad!

  3. Just an FYI: I am aware of when the contest ended. I posted about my problem well before the cut off time but you never answered me. I couldn't complete the form because I don't have a blog. You didn't state in the contest rules that you had to have a blog to be eligible for the contest. You might want to make that clear in future contests.

  4. FYI Leslee: I was NOT singling you out I was merely stating a fact as I do with all the contests that I host. It was never an issue but I guess I have to make it crystal clear, because apparently a required blog URL is not sufficient enough.

    Having a blog for this contest was something I wanted for this contest, but it is not the normal for those contests I have. Weather or not you have a blog for a contest is up to my discretion and it will vary from contest to contest.

We would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
