OK, so obviously my April Fool's idea for a blog contest didn't exactly sweep you off your feet.
The idea was to have you send me a photo of your house and I would post it with other bloggers' houses, along with names, and everyone would guess whose house was whose and the top three guessers would win a prize.
You'd think I was asking for your firstborn child.
Geez. I had one person, ONE, send me a picture of her house. Oh, and my mother, who hasn't figured out digital photography quite yet, asked me to come over and take a picture of her house.
I heard a couple people say they were a little nervous having their home featured. I get that. I mean, I don't, really, because I'm always putting my house and my children and my husband and my pets and even my bear nipple toilet paper holder online for the world to see.
It's been more than a year and no stalkers yet.
Anyway, I decided to make it less stalker-ish.
Now all I want is a picture of your damned front door. YOUR FRONT DOOR! If you have a number on it, I promise, I'LL PHOTOSHOP OUT THE DAMNED NUMBER.
I mean, come on, it's so easy.
Send me a picture of your damned door by April 1 and I'll post it with all the hundreds of other door pictures I'm not likely to get, and then we can all play the fun game of guessing whose door is whose.
Again, may I say, I will send three prizes to top guessers.
May I also say, I give away damned good prizes. Just ask Lou Freshwater or Laurita Miller or my mother (who sorta gave me crap for spending so much money on prizes for everyone in the Beaver Contest). THAT'S how good my prizes are!
And for WHAT?
Sending me a picture of your front door?
Come on you bunch of lolling about lazy-pants. I'm not even asking you to WRITE anything.
So here's the thing - if you're entering, you're invited to copy my beautiful badge onto your blog to share the magic. It's honestly the prettiest badge anyone has ever seen, really, isn't it?
And you SEND ME THE DAMNED PICTURE OF YOUR FRONT DOOR!
Every time I post my e-mail address I get deluged with spam so I'm fooling 'em this time: send your damned photo to catherinegwendolynne at hotmail dot com.
P.S. - I won't be posting the contest until AFTER April Fool's Day (probably, like, two days later) because I've agreed to enter Tony Noland's April Fool's Day blog swap over there at Landless. Hey, you can join us if you like! I'm sure he's game.
