Yes, I know you're all busy with site birthday celebrations, but I had an idea for a newsfeed merit badge challenge, so I'm running with it!
You can earn the exclusive Elle merit badge (above) or your choice of any non-exclusive merit badge. I'll do random draws for as many as I can afford.
My husband's lovely aunt (which makes her sound ancient, but she's not much older than me!) has joined Writing.com - please welcome Hope.
I must admit, when she first mentioned joining, I did have a mini panic. I'm not the same at family gatherings as I am on here! And there's some things in my portfolio that members of my family (let alone my husband's!) would be, er, shocked by. But I took a deep breath and reminded myself that WDC is a safe space to be ourselves and it'll be fun to get to know each other better outside of family gatherings. I nearly wrote 'polite family gatherings' but my husband's family are all loud and all have ADHD (which means NO FILTER) and they love a laugh. So there aren't really any polite family gatherings, but since she and I both married into this loud, crazy family, we are the quieter ones.
Anyway, for your chance to win a merit badge, share one aspect of your online personality that your family wouldn't recognise, or one item from your portfolio that you'd be reluctant to share with your family. If you're exactly the same with your family as you are online, well, you don't need a merit badge, my friend, because you are already winning at life.
Members earn a merit badge for every 10 pieces of mail they send, then we have special merit badges for those who earn 10, 25 or 50 Snail Mail merit badges. Yes, that means Jody has sent more than 100 pieces of mail! And yes, we do have one member who has already sent more than 500 pieces of mail.
