Drum Roll, Please...Pen & Prosper Announces the Winners of "I'm Sweet on Chocolate"


Happy Thursday, readers. I hope you've had a prolific, interesting, and fun writing week.
I 've been busy and blessed. New assignments, old challenges, and connecting with potential clients.

As many of you know, we recently had a contest here, that challenged writers to come up with a poem, slogan or story that describes their love of chocolate, in honor of National Chocolate week.
Many of you did. And I thank each of you.

I'm happy to announce...after cogitating, meditating, and deliberating, the winners have been finally chosen.
The top 3 winners were selected based upon creativity, originality, and adherence to the contest's guidelines.
So, here they are. This was tough choosing, folks.

                                                 Congratulations to the following winners!   
1ST PLACE---"WRITER'S INSPIRATION" BY LINDA O'CONNELL
2ND PLACE---"WHAT BROWN DOES" BY JEREMIE GUY 
3RD PLACE---"A CHOCOLATE SONNET" BY YASMIN MORAIS


Please join me in congratulating them!

  1. Oh my gosh, OMG! OMG! Thank you. How very exciting. I have been eating chocolate ever since I submitted that little ditty. Last night I pulverized a bag of Very Berry Oreos and mixed with cream cheese, then rolled into balls and dipped in melted Ghiradellis, then froze them. Scrumptious! Also can use a HiHo cracker for a base. You see, chocolate and I are best friends.

  4. Jennifer,

    Wow! Thanks. Congratulations too to Linda, Jeremy and all the others who entered. This was such a fun contest. Made me realize how many other chocoholic followers like myself at Pen and Prosper. Writers and chocolate do go together.

  5. Congratulation winners,

    In a Comment on your Chocolate Contest post, besides writing about Greeting Cards & Slogans, I wrote about how I like the idea of such Contests, because it's Fun and it can help generate Curiousity, and build up Anticipation.

    I also have been thinking about possible extra way's for building Curiousity & Anticipation on my own blog(s), and thought about possibly doing something like a 'Your Blogging & Affiliate Marketing Questions Answered'- Column or something like that.

    A Column where you can Ask Questions, and where both Readers and Me can help answer them. Any Winners out there that have ideas about how I could - Win - the attention of more writer's on my Blog?

    Hi H.P.,

    That sounds like a good start. Also, Trivia Contests work well.
    If you do initiate it, please make sure to let me know. I may have a question or two myself. :-) Thanks so much for your time and input.

    1. I don't yet have any actual ideas for things like Trivia Contests, however, since I have been blogging for a while now, and do know some things about building Marketing Campaigns and doing Affiliate Marketing....,

      I did recently write a new post Asking if you might have any Questions about Blogging & Affiliate Marketing that I might be able to answer, or to research for you.

      Than (Possibly with the help of any of the readers) I might be able to Answer such Questions, and would be able to write new posts for you providing you with some of the Answers, possibly making such new posts anticipating and interesting to read.

      'Talking about anticipating
      and interesting to read...,'


      I already did make somewhat of a headstart, since on the - FAQ page - you already can discover some 'Pre-made' Answers to Questions.
