I had my first contest ever, to show appreciation to all you guys who read my blog. The response was awesome! Next time, though, I’m going to use RaffleCopter because they make it fun and easy. Just a few words before I announce the winner:
I started this blog timidly. I really want to work on my writing and learn how to get my name out there so that one day I can write a book. I don’t know when that is going to happen, or if books will still be around when I finally finish. I just know that I was really scared to take the leap and start writing for everyone to see and judge. I’m still scared. But you guys have made it much easier to write (almost) every day. I have gotten comments from Derek Webb, one of my favorite (and one of the most important) musicians around, and Chad Gibbs, a hilarious
sports writer (I’m not actually sure what about anymore). My friends are incredibly supportive, joining in on the conversation constantly. So thank you guys, and I hope that you guys stick with me and tell me when I’m writing crappy. Ok, I’m done with all the sappy stuff.
I want to give a shout out to the person who commented most on this blog: Michael Elizondo. We are old college buddies and rabid San Antonio Spurs fans. He and his wife write a blog called Our Family E about everything. They just finished a series about the struggles of getting pregnant and how God guided them through hard times. It’s really awesome, and you should check it out.
There were a lot of people who left only one comment on the blog, and wouldn’t you know it, one of them is the winner. My friend Andrew and I have been friends since high school, and he is definitely in my Top 5 favorite people. He has a new blog called Gnuphurd about his new family (his baby girl Blanche is incredible, maybe he will show us some pictures). So, Congratulations on a new book Andrew! I’ll text you later for your address.
Thanks for playing, guys! I’ll be more organized next time, I promise.
