‘Criminal or Genius’ contest results posted


Blog Posted:9/28/2011 4:31:00 PM

Hi guys!  First, thanks to everyone who entered my contest.  I really loved your poems and not to sound cliché, it really was hard to judge.  There were a handful I really wanted to place but I took into consideration recent comments from people that it is better to place less people, so I tried.  Also, I didn’t include HMS as I normally do as recent comments indicated that people sometimes get insulted by HMs, and I’d certainly never like to insult anyone. 

For this contest…I did give preference to those acts that could be considered either genius or criminal.  I did place some higher (that were great) even though they didn’t meet that criteria exactly. 

Again, thanks to everyone who entered…and I’ll be working hard on thinking up my next challenge for you!
