Blog Party + Writing Contest Details

Huzzah! I'm proud to present to you the rules and regulations for my blog party and writing contest! Can you feel the excitement in air, everyone? I do, and I'm just shaking. I know most of you voted to do everything, but the schedule I have for this week would not allow it (mainly it is because of my two essays that are due, added on top of rehearsals). So, I will only be able to do these two options, plus possibly a video, if I can download the correct software onto my laptop. Well, let's not leave you there hanging; here are the details!
\\  Blog Party

The Ups and Downs of My Not-So-Average Life

I have hosted nor joined a blog party before, so I am going to have to just wing it! In exchange for you guys doing this, I will put your button on my sidebar for about three weeks before relocating it to my "Friends" page but after I update my blog design. The blog party will end on October 5th.
+ Post about the blog party on your blog with the button image above included.
+ Answer these ten questions:
1. What do you love about the fall season?
2. If you walked in a mall and saw a guacamole chip hat, would you wear one or eat it?
3. What is one of the most frustrating or aggravating things in the blogging world?
4. Would you rather build a snowman or sing in the rain? (See what I did there?)
5. If you had to chose how you were a part of a theater or movie production, would you be: an actor, props designer, set designer, light/technical director, audio coordinator, costume director, music director, dance coordinator, stage manager, or a part of the audience?
6. List your blogging inspirations (blogs and people).
7. Do you think you could commit yourself to a Halloween costume made of lint, or a Halloween costume made of bubble wrap?
8. Do you tend to photo bomb people's photos, or divert from them?
9. What is one word you constantly have to keep looking up the definition to?
10. If you wrote an autobiography about yourself, what would you call it (if you couldn't place your name in the title) and why?
+ Place the link to the blog party post in the comments section below.
+ If you don't have time to post your answers on your blog, alternatively you can place the button in your sidebar and answer the questions in the comments.

\\ Writing Contest

The Ups and Downs of My Not-So-Average Life

Unlike the previous writing contest I hosted, this contest does not have a topic. You can write about anything that you want, as long as it is not too long or contains anything that would be labeled as PG-13 if we had to put an MPAA label on it. Please make sure that it is your own work, and if you add photo from Pinterest or another website you label and give credit where it is needed. Also, add this button above your entry. I will announce a first, second, third place winners and several honorable mentions, but I will also place links to your entries. Write your entries on a post and post the link in the comments section. The deadline will be on October 5th, and winners should be announced on October 8th, three days before the big day. Not my birthday, though! Dun-dun, DUHNNN.

Good luck to you all!
