Disappointment


Blog Posted:1/3/2014 3:24:00 PM
 I am very disappointed about my contest. It shows there are 3 entries, yet... not one is for my contest. No one has entered.... It's been open 4 days now, and i thought I would have maybe one entry... but no....
Please write something for my contest. The details are on the contest page. Thanks, Love to all, Catie :)

    They're right Catie; sometimes my contests are open for almost two weeks before. It really depends on what I'm asking for; it may take a while for them to come up with it :)

    Woohoo! I entered it yesterday and didn't realize that was the one you were talking about. lol Yea Catie, I definitely wanted to marinate on that one; it was a good one ;)

    Good, Mandy. I hope you come up with an entry. Thanks. Hugs, Catie :)

    Catie, I love you and so glad I was able to hear you on Drake's radio show with Richard and the others. 4 days is not a long time. I haven't been entering contests but I will try. Sometimes life gets in the way and holiday burnout is a muse killer for me! Sometimes it takes a couple of weeks for poets to get something together. Keep cracking that whip! (just kidding) :)

    I may do that sometime Catie. Depends on the time frames. Thanks !

    Hy-Ya! Snap! LOL You are probably right, Karen. I think Drake's next show is going to be on the 12th...so why don't you choose one of your poems and call in, and read one aloud for us to enjoy. It's very exciting! hugs, catie :)
  1. Date: 1/3/2014 7:30:00 PM
    Blame it on the past week being a holiday. When everyone is back to their normal routine, betcha you will get more entries! Good luck, dear Catie !

    You are sweet to remember, Catie. It helped last year to share with you, ...yes....those holidays stirred up a lot of difficult memories from a year ago, and I'm sure it did for you too. I hope it softens some before next year....I'm sure time heals (as they say) Hugs Catie...xoxox
    Lindsey Avatar Catie Lindsey Date: 1/3/2014 8:37:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Oh, I do hope you're right, Carrie. On the first day I thought that also, but as the days passed...I was wondering if it was a worthy challenge for a contest. hugs, catie :) PS ~ I hope Nov. wasn't too hard for you, it surprised me how hard it was for me. :)
  1. Date: 1/3/2014 5:54:00 PM
    i think the delay is having to get the confirmation of a poet member to use his work as reference, catie... i'll get into this soon!.. huggs

    You could be right, Nette, but I just don't want the contest to upset anyone. Some poets are very sensitive, as you know. hugs, catie :)
  1. Date: 1/3/2014 5:34:00 PM
    Hush, Ruben ;) She has the most beguiling pout on Soup. Your contest idea is stellar. Will see what I can do-- probs not till Late next week. I hate even SUGGESTING a when, these days. I just picked up an herbal remedy and I'm seeing big improvements in only 8 hours of taking it!!! I still have a contest to close and I love to put up a blog about the winners but I still have the ???? problem (my ' and spaces are replaced by ?--weirdness!!!!) It's really messed up how I close contests and I find it quite disheartening. Anyway, I'm inspired all over the place ... once this flu is gone, I'll be writing LOTS but POSTING LITTLE until the opt out of sister sites are up. Hugs to you xoxox

    The herbal remedy cost me a mint and its worth every penny. $30! Yes, coughing is tiring and kept me from sleeping. Hubby has been looking after our wee one and I wasn't looking after myself. Finally dragged myself to the healthstore. Also taking unpasteurized honey, now. THANKS MAVERICK
    MacMillan Avatar Cyndi MacMillan Date: 1/3/2014 9:13:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Catie, the opt out is for Poetryzoom ONLY!!! TPS has yet to provide the opt out buttons for ALL sister sites, including haikupoemsandpoets, their love poem site, their limerick site and a few others. If you click that opt out, your haiku will still show up on the other site!
    Lindsey Avatar Catie Lindsey Date: 1/3/2014 8:33:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    The opt out IS up, in your member area towards the bottom of the profile page... I opt'ed out. I do hope that flu will leave you soon, it must be exhausting. I am so happy to hear that the herbal remedy is helping. Stick with it. hugs, catie :)
  1. Date: 1/3/2014 4:20:00 PM
    Don't fret... It usually takes more than 4 days to really write something good! Patience... I'm sure you'll be rewarded!
