Welcome to Write Right! I am so happy that I finally get to share this site with you. It’s taken a little over a month to get everything put in its place, and I know I still have some tweaking to do. I decided, though, that if I waited until the site was “perfect,” everyone would be waiting a very long time. At some point, I have to let go of perfection and just let things be.
Since today is a time to celebrate the new site, I hope you’ll put on your dance shoes and party hats and join the fun. If you comment on this post, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a personalized chibi. The rules are simple. You can comment as many times as you wish, but you’ll only be entered once. I know that might seem unfair, but I know some of you. I’m almost certain you’d comment one hundred times in hopes of increasing your odds. I have to be fair to the other commenters, so it’s one entry per person no matter how many times you comment.
The rules for the comments are simple, too. You have two choices:
- You can tell me what you like or dislike about the site. If you dislike something, please offer suggestions for correcting the problem. No one appreciates the “I don’t like this” comment without some sort of explanation for it.
- You can share a blog topic. Topics can be for the Write Right posts, such as when to put the question mark inside or outside the quotation mark, or they can be related to the writing life. For instance, I know that writing consistently or on demand sometimes is a concern.
Of course, you can allows try to impress me with a laugh-out-loud comment. I do enjoy a good laugh. I’m certain other readers will enjoy the hilarity, too.
As far as the entries go, the process is very scientific. Each person who comments will have his or her name written on a slip of paper. Those slips of paper will be placed in a hat or a bowl or some sort of container and shaken well. I’ll then close my eyes and reach my hand into the container and pull out a winner. Ta da!
Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. CST on Monday, March 12, 2012. The winner will be announced on Wednesday since a post already is scheduled for Tuesday. The personalized chibi will appear in a post the following week – probably the following Wednesday – and emailed to the winner.
Happy commenting and thank you for attending Write Right’s launch party.
