This is a jumble of upcoming well… stuff and a question – or questions – posed to you.
First of all, my next post on Tuesday, will be the “start” of my monthly “Guest Author & A Giveaway” spots. First up is Alexandra Hawkins, and three books will be given away. However because Ms. Hawkins won’t actually be doing a guest post, I also got the wonderful Marie Force to stop by on the 15th. I erm “interviewed” her – and there will be a total of four books being given away that day. (Ms. Force’s day is unfortunately busy, but she’ll try to stop by that evening, or in the following days if you have questions.)
Second… along those lines – I’m debating on how long to keep each contest open. Draw a winner and post it Thursday, have him or her contact me by Saturday? Or post a winner by Saturday, which leaves the contest open for 4-5 days? Or… post the winner in a week? So… guest on Tuesday, name drawn the Tuesday after?
Then, how long should the winner have to respond? 24 hours seems short… 48? No more than 72… so what’s your preference? After all, y’all are the ones who are going to be winning these books/various other prizes.
Lastly… what do you look for in a blog? Random blather? A friend was nice enough to call my pondering posts “editorials” – she’s so sweet 😉
I have to tell you though, my current pet project is…. feeding Shannon Stacey, as it were. It seems she’s an incredibly picky eater. Her family possibly even more so. So much that I’m not entirely sure what it is she doesn’t eat. Pretty much everything is on the “will not touch” list, it seems. I know chicken is safe. That’s… actually about it. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts…with Lipton seasoning I think?
Anyway, I’m determined to come up with a recipe for her that she and her family will like. I hope the rest of you will too. And of course it’s going to be simple since it seems Shannon loathes cooking. I hope I’m up to the challenge. Are any of you interested in recipes or stories of valor and defeat in the kitchen?
And how do you like this for filler? 😉 Although in all seriousness, I would like answers to all those questions. Oh and come February, I’ll be scheduling posts to go live at 12:03 AM EST, instead of 11:03 AM EST. Cuz. I know you early morning crowd are all eager to read this blog before work ;P
p.s. – the ironic thing is… no idea if the Stacey family eats bell peppers. Anyone wanna take bets? Personally I’m going with no. 😛
