We now take a break from deep thoughts to just have a little bit of fun. It’s like a three-ring blog circus:
- General Conference Blog-sharing Activity/Contest
- Comment Prize Giveaway
- Post-It Awards
General Conference Blog-sharing Activity/Contest
It’s been a long time since I participated in a meme (don’t worry, I had to look it up once, too–it’s basically some kind of questionnaire that you can fill out and pass along to others). I thought it would be fun to have an extra reason to pay careful attention at Conference. Here are the meme questions:
General Conference Highlights, October 2010:
1. Who were your three favorite speakers?
2. Favorite talk?
3. Favorite hymn sung during Conference?
4. Who wore the best tie?
5. Do you think conference had a “theme”?
6. Share a few of your favorite quotes (paraphrasing is fine).
7. Something that made you smile during conference.
8. Any evidence that your children paid attention?
9. If you had to give a talk in General Conference (don’t faint, this is hypothetical), what do you think you’d speak about?
10. What are some of your post-conference goals?
On Monday morning, I’ll post my own answers here on this blog and you can post your answers on your blog. (You can cut and paste the questions and just fill in the blanks with your answers.) Then just leave a link to your post in the comments on Monday’s post here. That way I (and other readers) can check out what you had to say. And you can invite your readers to do the same thing so you can find out their conference highlights.
Also, on my Monday post, I’ll post a General Conference trivia quiz. Whoever has the most points will be entered into a drawing for a prize! (Not sure what yet, but something cool. Oooh, I know. How about President Monson’s new biography?) Monday will be a fun day.
Comment Prize Giveaway
Now, any of you who have a blog know that blog comments are like little Christmas presents. They make you happy. My little ol’ blog has been up and running here since last March and I just noticed in my stats recently that I’m eerily close to getting my 5,000th comment! I know some people get that many comments in a week, but whatever. I still felt like celebrating. So whoever makes magical comment number 5,000 will win another prize. I’ll figure out what after I peruse your blog and think of something fun. Just wanted to do something to say thanks to my fantastic readers for giving me so many little comment-gifts over the last couple years.
Here are some of my recent favorite September posts from BlogLand. Several of them are from the the September Celebration of Family from Cocoa and Jocelyn‘s blogs. Enjoy!
