Okay, so I'm like a week late with this, but "The Soundtrack of Your Life Challenge is open for 2021!

I've tweaked the prizes (and number of entries you need to write to get the exclusive MB) slightly to account for the fact that I should have been posting this a week ago. *Blush* Check it out, because this is probably the fewest number of blog entries you'll ever need to write to get this exclusive MB! *Delight*

The Soundtrack of Your Life Challenge  [18+]
Every February, you're invited to chronicle the music that has influenced your life!

Don't ask questions...testing something

Just a quick note to let you all know that I'll have the winners for May's official contest and the official July contest round updated tonight. Apologies for the delay... I had an emergency root canal this week that threw a wrench in things! *Yikes*
Glad to hear the whole tooth from you.
It's always better to get things from the horse's mouth.
Those results were definitely worth the wait!

They were worth their 'wait' in gold, in fact!

This is a little late, but I just wanted to thank Elle , Jayne , and everyone else who worked so hard to put "The Quill Awards together this year. It's a staggering undertaking every year, and they make it look easy. *Smile*
I heard Choconut had a big hand in it as well. They are all fabulous! *Hug1**hug**Hug2* Even if someone assists in judging a single category, it's still a huge help!

@Kåre Enga, P.O. 22, Blogville - I've updated the survey form to make that a little clearer, thanks! *Smile*
I just read it wrong. Haven't had coffee yet.

Edited
Trying out this whole new Premium Plus membership situation, since The StoryMaster updated the upgrades and dropped the price.

Do I really need a Premium Plus membership right now?



Does I wants one anyway?



If you could pay monthly, I would upgrade.....
Elle  
Wow, your line of thinking and mine were virtually identical, Jeff! *Laugh* I'm still very seriously considering the ASA route for Quills (for a number of reasons) but I couldn't resist the Premium Plus account when SM adjusted the price.
Hmmm...A monthly auto debit would be an interesting idea, Jellyfish Double Jabbed :)! Sort of like a bank. *Smile* Hint, hint, SM... *Wink* I mean, I don't need it, but if other folks do...

2019 Total Number of Qualified Contest Entries: 243
2019 Percentage of Contest Entries that Qualified: 79.4%
2019 Average Number of Contest Entries Per Month: 25.5

2020 Total Number of Qualified Contest Entries: 268

2020 Average Number of Contest Entries Per Month: 25.3


Overall, while the total number of contest entries and average number of contest entries per month stayed about the same (only a nominal decline), the real story here is how the number of qualified entries per month increased almost 10%! *Shock*

Thank you to every entrant who took the time to do one last double-check to make sure you included a word count, properly rated your item, didn't edit after the deadline, etc. It was nice to disqualify fewer entries this past year!

Let's see if we can get above 90% qualified entries this year! What do you say? *Delight*
Thank you, Jeff for running the contest every month. You score 100% and more for efficiency. *Starstruck*
That's pretty cool! Thanks for sharing!
*Rabbit2*Hopping about on the chessboard so the Queen won't keep shouting "off with her head! Not to mention trying to avoid the Jabberwocky. Landing in your square here has brought me one step closer to the White/Red Queen!

Wow! You could be a stats keeper at the King of Heart's court! *Salute* I know it is sad wehn you have to disqualify folks on rule technicalities. The Queen of Hearts would be off with their heads! *Laugh* Adding that reminder and inviting to up the data gives us a challenge.

Thanks for all you do at WDC. *Heart* *Balloonp*Did I hear you are 18 this month? How did I miss it? *Shock2* oh, yes, I was lost in wonderland. *Crazy* Congratulations on that magical feat!

Have a *Strawberry* tart! Don't tell the Queen of Hearts who is still seeking the thief with her *Ax*.*Whistle*

eyestar from the Looking Glass in "Wonderland! *Heart*
A little birdie tells me you had an account anniversary! Happy Birthday! Hoping your day was joyful and full of the things that you like the most!
