The winner is...

This was very hard to judge because of all the brilliant ideas you came up with.

Honourable mentions to everyone who offered me any suggestions:

Scott from Oregon
Scarlet Blue

Special mentions to Sylvia for A view of the stars from the hedgerow and to Jessi for
A little bit of writing
A little bit of cats
A little bit of reading
And a whole lot of laughs!

and her jokes about hedgehog rhymes and to Pjd for his blatant flattery.

There were so many good ideas in there, some of them featuring hedgehogs and some of them not. To everyone who said that the tagline is fine as it is, thank you. To everyone who offered kind and flattering comments, thank you.

First place goes to Scarlet Blue for A Writer's PotPourri because that started the train of thought that led me to the new tagline. Scarlet, can you email me your address so I can post the chocolate to you?

Thanks, everyone, for your brilliant, funny and above all kind ideas! I'm sorry you can't all get the chocolate!

eeek! I've just checked back. My comment in the competition post wasn't actually a suggestion, it was a question about your email address! Ooops, sorry!

I like the new slogan, though, and I love the peaceful graphic. Pretty.

I'm sorry, McK. I thought it was a bit odd and that maybe you'd meant to get back to me. I thought it was a rhetorical question or I'd have answered you. I can spare some more choccie for you if you've got a suggestion...

Oh, and thanks for the compliment on the picture.

This is all looking very exciting. I ducked out from submitting as I quite liked the old tagline, but what you have now is better.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Whirl!

JaneyV said...

Good choice FHH. I really like it - and the new feel and look of your blog. Fab!

Congrats Scarlett!

Whirlochre said...

Back to check on the visuals. Very appealing.

Bevie said...

The winning entry is excellent. So is the new look.

Pity I don't get any chocolate, though.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks Janey and Whirl (again!).

Sorry, Bevie. You can have some xylitol if you mail me your address. It's much better for you!

Ello - Ellen Oh said...

I missed a chance at chocolate? how stinky is that? what the heck is xylitol?

The blog looks so pretty!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Ello.

I would have liked a Dodo bird verdict: "Everyone has won and you shall all have prizes" but I didn't think I could cope with that!

Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute made from corn cobs or some such. It's lowish calorie, low GI and doesn't need insulin to process it. It's good for people with diabetes or a candida infection.

I'm staying off sugar as far as I can because of my Chronic Fatigue Syndrom, so xylitol lets me have sugar free treats.

Jessi said...

Lol, I can't believe you actually copied/pasted that!

I like what you've chosen and your blog is looking very fresh at the moment. :D

McKoala said...

My entry was going to be something fairly ordinary, like. 'Nothing about fairies or hedgehogs, but some stuff about writing.'

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Jessi.

McK, it's weird that there are no fairies or hedgehogs around in here isn't it? I'd be more honest to call it widgetcats.

fairyhedgehog said...

The chocolate is on its way. The Post Office said it won't go till Monday because I missed the single Saturday collection. (I was posting at around 1.30pm!)

Hope you enjoy it and thanks again to everyone.
