  9. Holly Jahangiri says:


    I just now got online for the first time today – had a family emergency, needed to fly to Louisiana this weekend. Hard to connect from ICU…

    This is great news! Thank you to Kiesha and all you fantastic sponsors! Nice to get a bit of cheerful news today. New camera, here we come!


    • Hey Holly,

      Congrats!! You can get the camera now! Yippeee for you! Thanks to you and Melanie for being the toughest yet sporty competitors!

      Big e-hug! ;)

      • WAY TO GO, Hajra!!

        I’m so proud of you and proud to know you.

        Congratulations on your first place win!! :)


      • Holly Jahangiri says:

        I had a blast, Hajra! We should look for more contests – do this again, sometime. I know we had some folks completely baffled when we started giving away points to each other, but it made me laugh and I was so happy to make new friends! I think FRIENDLY competition is the key to success!

    • We did it, Holly!

      The Three Musketeers made it to the top!! :)

      Congrats, hugs, and love!

      P.S. I’m so sorry to hear about your family emergency. You’re in my prayers.

      • Holly Jahangiri says:

        Thanks, Melanie & Hajra! Love being a part of the Three Musketeers! I think this turned out just PERFECTLY. I accomplished all my goals – win enough to buy a new camera, get the special prize I got (how did THAT work out???), make fantastic new friends, have a blast – it doesn’t get any better than that!!

        I owe a HUGE thank you, too, not only to all the wonderful folks who regularly comment on blogs, but to the friends whose arms I managed to twist into doing it just for me – or into signing up on sites like Blog Engage, Blog Interact, and Blokube when they don’t even HAVE blogs. Getting non-blogging readers’ perspectives in the discussion is priceless, to me, because those of us who blog will never be completely objective readers.

        I’m home now, but I’m exhausted and may never catch up on email, facebook, blog posts, comments, and the like – I just want to thank everyone who wrote to express their concern for my family and me, it meant the world to me.

        • Nice to know you’re back home, Holly, and don’t stress over trying to catch up. Do what you can reasonably get done and let the rest go. Given the circumstances, I’m sure people will understand.

          Wow! You got “non-bloggers” to support you through this contest?! That deserves an award. :)

          Take good care of yourself and come back to the blogosphere after some much-needed rest.

    • Congratulations Holly!

      Sorry to hear about the emergency. Hope things get better so you can take more pictures on your camera

  10. WOW – A time for celebration!

    Thank You to Kiesha and all the generous sponsors of the WBB guest posting contest!

    This was a tough competition and an absolutely exhilarating event and I’m thrilled to have taken second place.

    Congratulations to everyone who had the courage to participate! You shine big time!


    • Congrats Melanie! You deserve a WIN. Loved your post and enjoyed the wonderful interaction it inspired. Now, how are we spending our share? :)

      • Thank you, Vernessa!!

        I wouldn’t be in this position if it weren’t for fellow bloggers like you who graciously supported me throughout this contest.

        How am I spending my share? Not sure yet. But my rent is due July 1st. :)


  11. It’s great to know and follow two of the winners.
    Congratulations, Hajra, on a great piece. It was revealing, entertaining, and informative. No wonder you won.
    Holly, didn’t know you were also a contestant but I have seen enough of your writing to know that you’re an excellent writer and blogger. So well-deserved congratulations to you as well and to both for entering.

  12. Congratulations to all the winners. It is wonderful to be in the TLC Club with Hajra and Melanie.

    I have learned a great deal about blogging from these ladies. Thank you for the inspiration!
