Fanfare for the common man
Believe it or not, we started our Going 40 in a 20 Zone journey a year ago today! 371 posts later, this blog has exceeded my expectations in every possible way. I had no idea such a strong, supportive community would develop around this venture. You all have been a joy to write for and with, and most importantly, I'm having a lot of fun. I hope you are, too. To celebrate, there is really only one thing we can do, and I know you're already chanting:
LIMERICK LIMERICK LIMERICK LIMERICK LIMERICK!!!
It's time for a new limerick contest, the blogiversary edition. Submit your best work (enter as many times as you'd like) by posting your limerick to the comments of this post. Reflect on your favorite Going40 moments of the past year, look to the year ahead--whatever you'd like. As usual, a fantastic celebrity judge and fabulous prizes are in the works. A couple reminders:
1. Deadline is August 27, 9:00pm.
2. Clever counts, but so does form. Count your syllables, people.
3. For inspiration (or to know what to avoid), check out our previous contests here and here and here.
P.S. I blogged six times on August 13, so scroll on down to see what you missed. I'm taking a little break.
