So today a light bulb went off in my head (not literally, of course, just a grand idea that finally became clear). In reading through comments and emails it seems that I wasn't entirely clear when describing what I was looking for in the Be My Baby Mama contest. That's probably why no one entered!!!
Yes, I am looking ultimately for my dreamgirl in the fuzzy flesh - but for the contest, I just wanted help in writing a personal ad that I'd be putting onto my website. So anyone can participate - you don't have to be a girl Dale to take part!
I am going to restart the contest - hopefully I'm much clearer this time! - and end it on November 30th.
So - to reiterate what the contest is, and what I'm looking for:
Your mission is to help me create my PAWSONAL AD to help me find a special Dale lady to have my fine Dale babies.
Are you a great writer? Then YOU should write the ad itself, something that makes me look GOOD - handsome, rugged, individualistic yet also charming, lovable and ready to mambo - that will help me to attract my special lady love.
Are you into artwork? Then YOU should make the photo/collage/macaroni art that will accompany the ad itself. Stretch your Photoshop skills, or cut and paste. Whatever medium you think is right works for me. Feel free to take any photos from my website (www.toaireisdivine.com) to use.
I have fresh copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Loving Our Dogs courtesy of the publishers to give away to two lucky winners! This is a brand-spanking-new book that you're gonna love.
The rules are simple - submit your artwork and/or ad text to me at firstname.lastname@example.org before November 31st. You MUST be a member of Dogs With Blogs (i.e., you must be a dog with a blog) in order to enter. Please include your blog URL with your submission(s). Submit as many times as you like. Anydog anywhere in the world can win - I will ship the book to you anywhere!
Questions? Email me. And thanks in advance for helpin' a Dale out...
