What Is Happening Today On Gather ~ Friday March 07, 2014

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on March 8, 2014 0 Comments

I have contacted many gather members in an attempt to get donations for contests for your enjoyment. I do hope you will join me in thanking those who give freely of their talents for these contests. Even if you do not enter, they deserve thanks. To thank those who donated in the first two contests, please scroll to the bottom of the post to find links. Thanks so much for making gather the best online community on the internet!

I am in a crappy mood. I don’t feel good. I can’t think straight and my house is a mess. But things will get better. Life has a way of changing in the wink of an eye.  Now that I said that let’s get down to business and find all the latest posts and conversations. It is so nice outside that you won’t even need a jacket. Let’s get started.

Oh by the way, have you entered the new contest yet?  You only have a few more days. This contest will end soon. 

 

There will be a new contest begin next week. Get ready for all the fun. 

Latest CONTEST

  
 
Gather member James T. has offered to donate the prize in this next contest. It is so easy to enter this contest.
  
James has three photos and each member can vote on the photo they like best. The winner will win a 11 X 17 print sent straight from the printers to their home.  
  
You MUST vote and add your vote to the latest Today on Gather post to be entered into the contest.  
  
In each new edition of Today on Gather, in the comment area, I will add a list of all those who have entered the contest. Please verify that I have not forgotten your name in that list.  
 
Ready to enter.  Here is the links to the three photos.  I can’t copy and paste because he has them locked as copyrighted.  He did send me a copy of each print via text but I can’t add them to the post.
 
You DO NEED to click on the links to view the photos.  Make sure to let him know you loved his photos.
