To show my appreciation for all the people who read my work, and to get to know my audience a bit better, I’m holding a contest.
1st Prize: A new copy of “Florida’s Living Beaches: A Guide for the Curious Beachcomber.”
2nd Prize: A new copy of “Seashells: A Beachcomber’s Guide”
Both books are authored by Blair & Dawn Witherington and are in full color.
How to participate: Send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what the beach means to you. Tell me why spending time at the beach is important to you. What is your attraction to the beach. You can write three sentences or several paragraphs–whatever you like. You could tell a story or write an original poem. You can record a video or sing a song. I’ll choose my favorite response and a second favorite to award the books. If I get enough responses, I’ll create a blog post with excerpts from all or most of them so we can all see what it is that attracts us to the beach. Your contest entry does not have to concern a Florida beach; it could be any beach. But I have to say that my process of picking a winner is rather subjective…OK, it’s totally subjective…and I’m probably biased toward Florida beach experiences.
Start date: February 14, 2013
End date: February 28, 2013; winner to be announced March 1, 2013.
Winner will be announced here on this web site, BlogTheBeach.com on March 1, 2013.
