Bonus Prize - Blog Challenge

Postby Deb Porter » Mon Nov 14, 2011 10:55 pm

Once again, thank you to everyone who took the time to leave feedback on Blog Challenge entries. You are all such blessings, but now it's time to announce the bonus prize winner.

Our winner of the bonus Ratings Feedback Report prize for the Blog Challenge is the lady with the BIG name ... Shann Hall-LochmannVanBennekom.

The bonus prize for this topic was sort of randomly selected, but not quite the "eeny, meeny, miney, moe" type of choosing I normally do. I did randomly select an entry, but there was Shann's comment right at the top. As always, it was kind, encouraging, and left a little bit of critique as well.

Out of interest, I decided to click on a few other random entries, and sure enough, there was Shann--if not always at the top, only a comment or two behind. That kind of faithfulness has to be rewarded.

To be in the running for this prize (and other little incentives in the future), make sure you leave critique/feedback on entries during the week and a half after the entries go public. One comment is randomly selected each topic to receive the prize. A sample of the Ratings Feedback Report can be found here:

Again, thank you to all those who took the time to be a blessing. We'll be doing it all again with the Spam Challenge on Thursday.

Love, Deb

Thank you everyone! I have tears in my eyes. God works in such wonderful ways. I've been discouraged in general lately and this couldn't come at a better time for me. November is always a difficult month. My mom would have turned 76 this year and it's been 11 years since her mom (my grandma) died. These two ladies were a great influence in my life and constant encouragers especially in my writing endevours. I miss them but the love and support from my FW family helps ease my pain.

This Blog Challenge is also the perfect entry to get a critique on. I can't want to read the review. I tried to think Outside the box on this one and Iknow many people didn't understand it. The feedback will help me to go out of the box while balancing that line between giving the reader enough description without out and out stating my moral.

This is so :coolsign :D :D

Shane,
A bit late, but I just want to add my congratulations. Your win in another example of how faithful God is to keep His promise: "In due season, you shall reap if you don't faint."

Be encouraged, and bask in the moment. :shiney2 :handshake

I just now saw this but couldn't be more delighted than to see Shann get this bonus. It is much deserved. She faithfully encourages so many!

Love you, Shann!

Thanks so much everyone. It's great to be appreciated. There are several others who make an effort to comment on every piece too. Camille, Noel, Theresa as well as several who comment on as many as possible Jennifer, Verna, Allison and those are just off the top of my head. It's so wonderful to be part of such an encouraging loving family!
