#BlogBattle Week 21 “Eye” Entries & Voting

#BlogBattle 21 Story Theme: Eye

(basic rules at the bottom of the post)

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 3 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!)

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!
