Question of the Day:After the release of her newest album, Femme Fatale, and recent publicity, do you think Britney Spears is really “coming back” or do you feel that all this is just a desperate want and need to go back to her glory days in the ’90s?
So a few days ago, it came to my attention that…..I HAVE FINALLY REACHED 100 FOLLOWERS!!! Well, I’m sure you could easily guess that my first reaction was: EEK!!!! My second reaction was…PARTY TIME!!!I mean, I knew this HAD to call for some sort of celebration. And so therefore I present to you….
This is my very first time hosting a blogfest (ever), and I couldn’t be more excited to share this special moment with “y’all.” *tears through smiles*
The idea is to write an entry of NO MORE THAN 1000 words that somehow incorporates the personification of inanimate objects. It can be a poem, a short short, a letter (perhaps to your favorite childhood toy?), a fairytale, a scene from a dream, or even a song–anything you want! It can be something you’ve written in the past or it could be totally brand new…it’s all up to you!
-No prizes, sadly, as I am a poor college student. But if there were prizes and if money wasn’t an option, then I would totally buy each and every one of you a giant sprinkle cupcake with a shimmering firework on top. But yes, yes, this is just for total fun and sharing…AND, of course, to celebrate my achieving 100-followers :)
-You’ve got over a month to think of something! Post your entry on your blog on Saturday, May 14, 2011.
-On May 14, be sure to go around and check out everyone else’s entries!
-People love shiny things and visuals, right? It’s not required, but it would be great if you added the Blogfest Banner (up there *pokes up*) so everyone knows what on earth that angry letter to your toaster is for. And, of course, you may add any of your own images that may complement your Inanimation post.
-Tweets/Facebook posts/blog entries/sidebar links and other forms of advertising about this blogfest would all be greatly appreciated!! You can use the banner above or this mini one:
So what are you waiting for?

If you want to add your name, comment below with a link to your blogfest and the name of your blog, and I’ll add your link. See you on May 14th!
#DailyWings: “It takes courage to rest and play in a culture where exhaustion is seen as a status symbol.” — Brené Brown Wow. It feels so surreal to be writing for my blog again, but here I am. My life is vastly different now than it was a year ago. I started a new position as a […]
#DailyWings: “I’m a story-teller. I tell stories. In some stories, I am the story. But the story transcends me. How? Hear my stories.” –Guy at your J-school Happy November! It’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally finished putting together this blog post about my experiences at Columbia Journalism School (as promised), along with several nuggets […]
#DailyWings: “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” ― Charles M. Schulz I am really excited about today’s edition of “The SELF Diet,” mainly because this was the first dish that made me actually love cooking. This dish, a lemon-garlic spaghetti piccata, was inspired by a recipe for “Linguine with Tuna, […]
#DailyWings: “Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.” -Paulo Coelho A person’s mood is like the waves of an ocean, a cosine graph. It fluctuates in a gradual manner. We all have our bad days, brought forth by a […]
