Still A Chance to Win! (The Contest Continues – Name That Blog Week 2)
You know, the older I get, the faster these old things bounce around—Wednesdays, I mean, in case your mind went somewhere else. I hope everyone enjoyed a happy Christmas holiday and that you’re resting up for 2017. Any plans for New Year’s Eve? Share them in the comments. 🙂
There is a slight glitch in the blog naming contest. Quite simply, I’ve yet to make up my mind. That’s the reason I didn’t respond to comments from last week’s post, though I did read all of them. Since I haven’t decided yet, it didn’t seem fair to comment. The good news is, you still have time to offer up more ideas! Because yours truly is still . . .
Please keep the ideas coming, and think outside the box. My brand has been Writing in the Buff for a long time, along with the rendering of the Naked Truth, so I’m partial to that, but if you come up with something outlandishly brilliant that has nothing to do with nakedness, that will be cool too—and probably please my husband who has never been thrilled that my blog name ensures I pop up in certain Internet searches.
Just to entice you to put on your thinking beanie, here’s a sneak peek into the box of books you’ll receive if you win:
Those are just some of the books in the box. Other authors include Cathy Maxwell, Karen Rose, and Cormac McCarthy. There’s also a special mug in it for you, because what would a promo be without a little swag? So put your Creative on and see if you can come up with a blog name that’s yet to be suggested. Even if you’ve already rendered an opinion, offer up another for consideration. One of you will be digging through that box soon, and what’s a better way to begin 2017 than with a bunch of great reads?
Sometimes great reads are the best thing about the transition into the New Year. I know many people are hoping that 2017 will bring with it better things than what 2016 is leaving behind. I’m thinking in particular of dear friends who, in just the last two weeks, experienced major health setbacks for two family members and of other friends who spent the better part of 2016 battling illness. From my recent, though brief, glances through Facebook I’ve read notifications from so many who have experienced health scares and personal losses. Publicly, we’ve said goodbye to an unprecedented number of celebrities who slid beyond the veil in 2016. If nothing else, all of these things have been reminders that every day is a gift, every moment precious.
We never know what the next tide will wash ashore or what tomorrow’s sun will illuminate. But we have today, we have now, and there is no better time to say thank you for being part of my life and for allowing me to be part of yours. I’m grateful.
Wishing you a healthful 2017, buttercup. And may God bless us, every one.
