And the Winner Is...


Nope, I didn't forget. I needed some time to breathe! Plus, my “normal” Life is Good schedule is to post M-W-F. Normal should be taken as a goal, not a given. Life is also busy and unpredictable...

Without further ado, I announce the winner of the $25 IKEA gift card:
Gregg Metcalf who blogs at Gospel Driven Disciples. Please pay him a visit and say congrats!


For you mathematical types, here's how the winner was chosen. (I always like to know...) I added up all the comments I got during the A-Z. 704! Unbelievable. Wonderful! Thank you! (And thank you to all my new followers – I'm in the process of visiting...I will get to you...) Then random.org picked a number for me (10) and Gregg had the 10th comment in my series.

Now that the dust has settled, how are you doing? What's your blogging schedule going to be like? Going on vacation from all the work or are you excited and feeling great about a re-energized blog with more followers?

Congratulations Greg!!! :D

I have so many blog posts scheduled, almost to publish daily instead of every other day, b/c I have to play catch up from April!!!!!

Congratulations, Gregg!
I'm back to three times a week. My May is full but I plan to take some time off in June.

Gregg Metcalf said...

Wow! I am honored, humbled, and thrilled! Thank you so very much! I don't know what to say.

I'm maintaining my old daily blogging schedule, though with far more explicit fiction than in April. It's a good exercise! Hope post-April is restful for you.

And congratulations, Gregg!

Congrats to the winner, I must admit I didn't realize there was a contest but I was flying around to so many blogs I got lost on who was doing what and when LOL.
I am a bad blogger, I post when I feel like it but I do try my hardest to post six days a week. Keeping it short and light on Saturday. I am a little overwhelmed with adding a bunch of new blogs to my reading but enjoying them and kind of weeding some out at the same time, you know finding your true buddies as time goes on.
I hope things settle down for you and you get back into a rhythm as much as that is possible in the game of life.

I bet you're happy that it was only comment #10, or you would have had to figure out #402 or something random, that would have taken forever.

Now that the Challenge is over, I plan on putting A LOT more time into my schoolwork. Not too exciting but it'll be nice to have it out of the way.

Now that the challenge is over I've been taking a little break from blogging. Hopefully I'll be back to posting this week though. I've enjoyed the rest, and I didn't check any blogs over the past week or so, so the calm has been nice. But I don't want to lose the new blogging energy.

Congratulations on winning, Greg!
Thanks for the comments on my blog at Creating Wordlenik. The computer keeps complaining something about default mail, but somehow my link was fixed. I'm #200 and it goes to the right spot when I click on it.
