The contest is simple: write me a blog. You know me, you know my style. Life is wonderful, scary, crazy, monotonous and a hundred other verbs. But there is something to be learned from everything we do. Share one of your magical moments of madness. Keep the entry around 900-1,000 words (I figure readers don’t have all day to read my ramblings).
The prize: First place will be publishing your blog on my blog. I may not have a million readers, but the half-million that peruse these halls (ha!) will be able to taste a little of your desert as well. And wouldn’t it be great to see your name in print? Then you can call your grandma and your brother-in-law and tell them you-are-published! The winner will also receive a brand-new, never-been-opened, cookbook from the Southern Gateways Bed and Breakfast Association called “Beyond Breakfast” (from the days when I was a bed and breakfast owner. That’s a blog or two all of its own…) It may be from 1998, but hey — you can never have enough cook books!
Second prize will be a trio of beautiful note cards. Writing is a lost art – these will enable you to send someone a note the OLD FASHIONED WAY.

Entry deadline is April 16th.
It would delight me to no end if you’d give it a whirl! Come On! Yooouuuu Can Dooooo Eeeet!
