Best Blogs Competition Time

Do you love my blog? Do you think it is the best blog in town? Are you one of my most loyal subscribers?

Maybe you don’t really enjoy my blog, but you are my mother and feel pressured to read on. I don’t really mind how you got...

And the winner is…….

Thank you to everyone who entered this week’s Funny Zombie Flash Fiction Contest. Every single one of the entries blew me away.

Vote for Meeeee!

The Best Australian Blogs 2012 Competition, People’s Choice Award is now open for voting! I’m not entirely sure what possessed me to enter this part of the competition, especially considering that I have a regular readership of only four, one of whom is ineligible to vote, because he is a cat. I also doubt that he would lower himself to the level of voting anyway, particularly as I usually force him to read my posts in...
