#BlogBattle “Head” Entries & Voting

#BlogBattle 26 Story Theme: HeadBlogBattle award 2

Today we celebrate six months of Blog Battles! Woot! Woot!

It’s been a pleasure to battle with you all over the past six months, and I’m looking forward to the next six. Each and every one of you make it worth it. Thanks for being a part of the fun!

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.

    1. Thanks Cathleen. Yay! We’re happy to have you with us. ❤
      BlogBattles are an inspired sort of event. In fact, the friend who first collaborated on the original Blog War idea with me has challenged me to another one that we'll be posting to his blog next Monday. It's a slightly different challenge, but we would love it if you helped pick the winner next week. 🙂


  1. I’m very bad, everyone. I have not written my head story yet. It’s stuck in my head since my head has been full of other things to do all day long. Good news is my boys are well. Tall for their ages and younger loves sniffing older’s feet. Uh…okay. Anywho. I hope I can throw something together in the next 45 minutes! SHOCKING! Better get busy!


  2. Congratulations on your SIX MONTHS!!! that is absolutely awesome! It is truly a wonderful thing you are doing here, o can’t wait to be a part of it again! Thank you and congratulations!

  3. Congrats! Or Happy 6 Month Anniversary. Or… Something nice. 🙂 Like Beaton, I’ve only been here for a few battles but you are a generous hostess, the writers are wonderful and it’s a joy to read their stories. Most of all, it’s just fun writing to a prompt every week and I appreciate you hosting this. Thank you.
