#BlogBattle 51 Story Theme: Trace
You know what this means, right? Next week will mark one year of #BlogBattle! I’m amazed and so thankful to everyone who participates and makes this writing thing happen every week. And to celebrate, we’ll be having a bit of a party next week. Participants, choose a favorite #BlogBattle story you’ve written in the last year and include a link to it in the comments below. I’m going to do my best to compile a fun look back at the last year of stories!
If you have other ideas to help us celebrate all the work and creativity of the Year in Battling, let me know! 🙂
