Choose One, Have Fun contest
Blog Posted:7/15/2010 7:17:00 AM

 

I have finalized the contest but keep getting a "server error" message and so can't post the winners. I will keep trying...
   I just want to thank everyone for such incredible poetry. There was one in particular that would have received a top 2, but the poem had nothing to do with any of the subjects in the contest! Also, there were still many poems that did not reach required criteria. However, with as many that were entered and so many excellent ones, it was a difficult contest to judge.
   Excellent work Poetry Soup friends. I saw talent here that I haven't seen in certain contests before. I have not yet read the names of winners so I can't post them, but let me just say WOW!
   This was exciting and I will be hosting another just as soon as this can be finalized.

Thank you all,

Amy Green

    Thank you so much for my #1 they are few and far between. Sometimes I find it helps to come to the site through a different search engine. I always enter soup through AOL. If I get too many error messages sometimes I come in through internet explorer or Yahoo & then I don't get the message.

    My ranking shows up on my Member Contest Entries list, so thanks for the HM! One thing though: last time with Deb's fireworks contest my ranking showed up on my member area page before the whole list was posted, but then I found out that my ranking changed! Weird...
