Competition

I need help.

You may have noticed that the tagline on my blog says Mostly about books and writing and a bit about cats, or maybe you haven't because you view in a reader. Anyway, books and writing were the initial impetus for this blog but I don't post much about published books because no one seems interested. Looking back, what I have posted about is: words, word games, gender issues, homophobia, various outings I've been on, and computer widgets that take my fancy. I also post photos I've taken of my area and of my cats. If you look over the blog or the Label cloud you may find other odds and ends that I've forgotten about.

I know what I want in this blog but I don't know how to label it so I this is where I would like your help.

The rules
  • Write a tagline for this blog.

  • You have until midnight EST on Thursday 16th 2009* to send me your entry.

  • You can enter by commenting here or by email to anthingyoulike.fairyhedgehog@recursor.net (or to my main email address if you happen to have it). Please put Competition in the subject line so that I don't get confused.

  • The winner is the one that I decide to use as my tagline. If none of them is exactly what I want, then the one I like best will win.
The Prize

is a minature selection of Green & Black's awesome chocolate. (If anyone wins who doesn't eat chocolate then we'll come to some sort of agreement. I'm sure there is something you'd like!)

*That's 5am BST on Friday 17th. I don't get up till at least 6.30 so there's a bit of leeway here.

So you want us to come up with something to replace:

"fairyhedgehog",

"Mostly about books and writing and a bit about cats.",

Or both?

I'm keeping the name fairyhedgehog but I need something better than Mostly about books and writing and a bit about cats.

I don't see anything wrong with what you have, FHH. It describes what you write about, for the most part.

"and things that take my fancy" might be added on if you are shooting for accuracy.

Bevie said...

Oh, and Happy Easter, Fairy. Hope your day is the best of all.

Scott from Oregon said...

...writing... books... about cats...

How about

"Some books, some cats, some widgets... but you won't notice because you'll be enchanted by the sultry voice."

McKoala said...

'anthing' or 'anything?' I might, or might not, have an idea...

Whirlochre said...

Despite Easter, my need to win chocolate remains undiminished. I'll see if I can think of anything — though what you have is fine. One of the reasons I visit is for the interesting mix of posts.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thank you for all your entries so far, including by email.

Writtenwyrd, thanks for saying what I've got is OK!

Bevie, thank you for your Easter wishes, and Happy Easter to you (a bit late!)

Scott, that's very minimalist!

Pjd, what a nice compliment! Thank you!

McK, I'm not quite sure what you're saying there.

Whirl, thank you and I look forward to what you come up with. I'll try not to favour you just because postage to the UK is cheaper.

"A selection of words about words."

"Mostly about everything."

"A view of the stars from the hedgerow" (er, where DO hedgehogs live?)

*ponder*

A Writer's Potpourri...?
I'll come back if I think of anything else. It's taken me ages to think of this!
Sx

Thanks for entering, sylvia and Scarlet.

I really have no idea what to even suggest. It's late and I'm in a silly mood, so I'm coming up with things like....

A little bit of writing
A little bit of cats
A little bit of reading
And a whole lot of laughs!

But uh, cats and laughs don't really rhyme, so my Dr. Seuss-ish-ness is really failing me at the moment, hehe.

I can't help but want to make a pun on the fact that most recently, you seem to cover everything 'but' fairies and hedgehogs. ;-) Strangely, nothing really seems to rhyme with hedgehogs either except maybe sledge dogs or ledge jobs or...

Okay, I'm going to stop now, hehe. I think you get the idea that I can't really think of how to help you out at the moment, ha. I like a few of the ideas you've gotten so far, though, so maybe you'd be able to combine a couple of things to come up with something you really like.

fairyhedgehog said...

Jessi, it might not rhyme but it had me laughing out loud! Thank you!

FairyHedgehog ...
about wishes and prickles.. and cats (sometimes)

FairyHedgehog ...
words and s%@t

I'm so eloquent.

fairyhedgehog said...

"Words and s%@t" has a certain ring to it but I don't want to antagonise any of my less robust friends who visit here!

JaneyV said...

Words and stuff would've been less antagonistic and equally eloquent (?)
