Contest "The Secondhand Emotion"

Blog Posted:1/14/2012 1:04:00 PM
I just want to thank everybody who has participated in my contest, only a few more to go before it's decided and finalized! This is my first contest, so I was pretty surprised how quickly it filled up. I just want to let everybody know that there was not one poem that wasn't amazing, and it was extremely difficult to eliminate any of you. So thank you for your participation and hopefully the contest will be filled up by Monday. Take care!

Yes,that will be a hard one to judge, Dana'lynn. Did you notice how the soup was down for a while. People were unable to enter contests.I think it's ok now. So if your contest still needed filling, that could be why! Good luck with the process. LUv, Andrea
