Bloggers Photo

I know so many of you now, well not personally! For those who I am meeting for the first time, my name is Kim Rodrigues. I love to write about my family, travel, life, current events, and Christian themes. I consider my writing eclectic. I enjoy trying out the various forms, love brevity poems, and often write in free verse. Please try a sampling of my poetry. I hope you enjoy! I will try to visit your postings, as well. Happy Writing!

After entering a contest, make sure it is the one that you intended to enter. I keep receiving entries that have nothing to do with my contest. Best wishes!

Possibly a glitch as Doug suggests, but when you get like three or more of them, it's more witchy than glitchy.

I think there is a glitch in the contest-poem-entering process. Once I entered a poem in a contest, and it showed up in a different contest; had to redo everything. Once I entered a poem in a contest, and the server did not "take" it, i.e. it was like I never entered. Contest ended - there was no placement, no "NA" etc.

I think it happens in a lot of contests Kim, it's irritating as it is taking the place of someone who really wants to enter the contest ... why not increase your contest number for each poem you get that is not for your contest and then you can n/a the unwanted ones and not cause issues when you come to judge the contest:-) hugs Jan xx
