About three weeks ago I updated my weblog banner and decided that I would offer someone a chance at receiving a new one from me also. I was inundated with requests (not) to take up the offer. I think there are two factors at play here. One, not that many people knew about the offer, and two, the people that did know about it are quite happy with the banner they already have.
Nonetheless, two fine people, Megan and Lacey, said they’d like to take me up on their offer and they both did excellent work in pleading their case.
Here’s part of what Megan said:
"So my plea: Please Ms J. I need your help because I don’t know how to
do this and because I love you and because I linked to you and because
I was a single Mum for 27,000 years too (but the toad I kissed a few
years back turned into a Prince and now I am in love and got married
again in March) and because you can make the header part of my blog
look less like the incredible hulk hiding in the grass."
and part of what Lacey said:
"I love Your eye, and would simply adore working with someone who could
create something visually appealing to draw people in. Do you think you
can help me?!"
Megan definitely won the award in the sucking up department, but she needed quite a bit more than I thought I could give. She needed a WordPress guru to help her tidy up other aspects of her blog, not just mow the lawn on her banner. Luckily there are some very kind people out there and she found such a person so she didn’t need my services.
Actually, because I only received two requests I was going to let there be two winners, but as I’ve just said Megan has been sorted, so I will be doing a whizz-bang banner for Lacey. Psst, I think she could do a good job of it herself because I think she’s got a good eye too.
I will keep you posted!
Megan is imagining that all kids are safe. says
You are such a sweet dag.
I am proud to have won in the sucking up department and very, very pleased that I have found a wordpress guru who mows, trims, plants and fertilizers. She has taught me heaps already.
J I have a comp going at the moment (Aussie finger puppets) and have had enormous hits from compingclub.com (Australian competitions club). The site must have captured my comp because I didn’t submit it. Site lists HUGE numbers of comps. May be worth investigating for your next competitions???
wonderful – we would love to see you creations :-p
