Favorite Time of Year

I think most people have a favorite time of year, and mine is coming up soon! Fall is my favorite time of year, and it all starts off with a huge celebration!

Very soon, we'll start celebrating WDC's birthday! Keep an eye on your email and on the site for links to Party Central where you can find links to all the fun & festivities! *Balloonb* *Partyhato* *Cake2* *Confettip*

If you can, schedule some free time to browse the site and check out all the activities and contests! There often is a good mixture between longer, involved contests and quicker participation activities. Find one perfect for you and help celebrate WDC's 20th birthday! *Gifty* *Confettig* *Candleb*

If you don't have a lot of spare time, there are lots of quick ways to participate, too

*Idea* Leave a review of a contest or activity or a contest entry
*Idea* Post a message in "Writing.Com General Discussion
*Idea* Welcome a new member in "Noticing Newbies
*Idea* Find a contest or activity and write about it in your blog! Help share the fun!
*Idea* Share WDC with friends and family! Invite others to join!

Possibly my favorite thing about Writing.Com is that you can participate as much or as little as your schedule and "real life" allows! I've had periods of my life where I've spent hours per day reviewing and exploring, and also times where I could only manage a few minutes per day. Any amount of participation is what helps to make this such a successful and amazing place!

As always, keep on writing! *Quill*
