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*

You know your new Facebook friendship with someone is off to a good start when, within an hour of accepting their friend request, they've already private messaged you and asked if you can help them professionally (read their script, get them a job at your company, etc.).

Instant favors... the bedrock of every strong friendship.

I don't usually friend people I don't know either, but this was one of those situations where we had so many other mutual friends that I was like, "Well, I don't know him but a bunch of other people I'm friends with do, so why not?" I make this mistake every so often, and am always quickly reminded why my usual rule is, "If I don't know them directly, I don't accept their friend requests." *Smile*
Ahh...Yes. Makes perfect sense. I would have as well, in that case. Though, I have very little to offer people, professionally. *Laugh* I mean, if they want to buy some Pampered Chef products, sure. Otherwise, I have no useful skills or talents. *Rolling*
I used to love Facebook but now I think it's one of the worst things about modern life.....

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!
