Calling all comments!

Hi friends! I entered a writing contest over at Skimbaco Lifestyle to try and win a ticket to the Blissdom Conference in Nashville next month. I had planned on driving up to meet everyone outside the conference, but there's no way I can afford a $300.00 ticket to get into the conference itself. So when I found out that Skimbaco Lifestyle was giving away a ticket to one lucky writer, I sprang into action and wrote an uplifting blog post that I hope you'll enjoy. The rules state that the post must be written about living life to the fullest and that the person with the most comments left on their post wins a ticket to Blissdom! So if you feel inclined, I'd love it if you stopped by and gave my post a gander. And if you leave me a comment I'll be your best friend. :-)

Thank you, thank you!

PS- We got our issue of The Nest magazine yesterday! I'll be back later with all the photos! If you want a sneak peek, you can see the cover in our left sidebar under "Lettered Press"! :-)

Oh Layla...you are the most positive person I have ever known! (Does that count since we have yet to meet in person?) You are bubbling over with bliss, they need your energy at the conference!! To sum it up for everyone let me shout it out...YOU MAKE HAPPINESS A CHOICE! If more people realized that the whole world would walk around with smiles on their face. ;o) ~mary~

I was going to enter the contest because I couldn't afford a ticket to go this year either, but I knew I'd never get a bunch of comments, so I passed on the idea. I would love for you to be able to attend and so would everybody else going! People kind of flock to the *famous* bloggers at Blissdom and then they write about it, so we get to kind of be there through them. I so enjoy your writing and would enjoy your take on the experience.

Beachgirl said...

Got my issue yesterday as well - so awesome!!! congrats!

Destiny said...

I'll definitely go over and help you out! I lived in Nashville for a while (I'm a Tennessee native) - I really miss it there! Good luck with your win!!!!
