Here's how a contest works, my friends. You have to ENTER!
Thus far (and today being the original deadline), only 2 brave souls have ventured entries - not enough for a contest. And so my little contest feels sad and unloved :( and is threatening to sulk and possibly gnaw the furniture.
I find myself wondering, do you, my faithful readers, not like contests? or was the prize not motivating enough? or was it the wrong kind of contest?
Please share your thoughts! I want the contests to be fun!
In case you haven't figured it out yet, I have a bit of a competitive streak. I myself cannot resist contests, games, or challenges of most kinds (although if anyone challenged me to join a Polar Bear Club - you know, the kind where you cut a hole in the ice on New Year's Day and take a swim? - I would turn that down no problem!)
Because I like contests, I am announcing a NEW CONTEST - a contest contest if you will: submit ideas for contests you think would be fun and prizes you think would be motivating. Whoever wins, we'll use your ideas and I will credit you by adding your name to the contest title (e.g. Mary's Famous Character Contest)!
Meanwhile, I will extend the deadline of the original contest (see post from December 8) through Sunday Dec. 19. If I wait any longer than that, the winner won't get their prize in time for the holidays. Please brighten my sad little contest's day by submitting at least a few more entries. You can think of it as your daily contribution of holiday cheer!
Looking forward to your ideas!
I am very motivated by the prize offered. I can't think of a better one than a brand new Susanna Leonard Hill book! In the past, you seem to have gotten lots of response to naming character contests, and I also liked the guess the children's literature quote. However, I would like to suggest a most humorous story or most embarassing moment contest. :) How about a catchy children's book title contest? TeriReplyDelete
Thank you for your kind comments regarding the prize, Teri :) and for all your wonderful suggestions. I like them all, but then again, we have already established that I am a game/contest lover! What do other people think?ReplyDelete
