#BlogBattle Week 17 “Drop” Entries & Voting

#BlogBattle 17 Story Theme: Drop (a VERB!)

(basic rules at the bottom of the post)

If you get a chance, check out the “Blog Battlers” page on my blog. I’m rather proud of how it turned out, and I hope it makes it easier to find your favorite battler’s stories. 🙂 Eventually, my goal is to have a brief little bio available for each battler’s individual page. Wouldn’t that be cool! 

I’ll add more stories later in the day. Look for everyone’s stories using #BlogBattle on Twitter, too! Wednesday, the poll gets added. Be sure to read them all. All the links will open in a new window so that you can easily navigate back to this list.

RULES for VOTING: Anyone can vote as long as you’ve read ALL the stories for this week by 10 PM PDT, SUNDAY. Vote for your top two favorites. Winner announced on Monday! (With as many great stories as get submitted, I think we all need just a little more time to read them and vote!)

    1. You’ve got two hours left! 😉 Actually, since I don’t usually make the poll until mid morning of Wednesday, I usually gather up any last minute stories and still add them before I post the poll! You’re golden! 😉
