1st Year Celebration – Day 3





Hi everyone!

Welcome back for Day #3 of our 1st Anniversary Celebration...woohoo!

Can you tell we’re excited here at The Log Line Blog? One of the items we accomplished this year is to open a sister blog, The Book’s Blurb Blog, for the blurb of your book. That site in the first eight days of operation have exceeded our expectations! This really makes us jazzed around here.

But this isn’t about our new ventures, this day is about The Log Line Blog. Now we’ve gone over a few statistic from the blog. Here’s a few more facts. The Log Line Blog was published an amazing 276 times its first year. 47 of those posts were in November and December of 2011 and the rest were this year. The only time the blog had a slow or some down time was when Lynn was ill during April and May when she was in the hospital. Otherwise, we’ve been here consistently 6-7 days a week for your reading pleasure.

Now, we want you all to start looking at all the log lines, old and new, from beginning to end. One of the questions we are going to ask on Day 5 is to give us your favorite log line, so you should start looking at them to give yourself a head start. Also, when posting your answers to the questions or just commenting, please make sure you give us a valid email address. We don’t want you to miss out if you’re one of our winners as we do have a time limit on picking up prizes. Only 1 person during the year missed out on their gift certificates.

We can’t thank you enough for being here with us throughout our journey. We appreciate each and every one of you and we can’t say it enough.

Here are today’s questions:

1) What’s the name of our new sister blog?

2) How many log lines have we posted during this first year?

Don’t forget to include your email when you comment and give us the answers. You can also go back to the first two days and comment there again as well. Or maybe you’ll comment for the first time...just don’t forget to answer the questions of the day as that will qualify you for the drawing. Here’s the list of prizes and rules once again:

Our grand prize will be a Kindle Fire HD along with 4 $20 gift certificates. You MUST comment today or on one of these days (November 3rd, 4th, 8th, 10th and 12th) to enter the yearly contest. Only comments from these days will be counted toward the grand prize. All prizes will be drawn randomly, so the more you enter, the more chances you have. Now, your comments need to be more than one word comments. We’ll give you a series of questions to answer each day. No, none of them will be hard and all the answers will be in the content of that day’s blog. Once you’ve answered the questions for the day, please come back and tell us what you think of the blog, it’s growth and what you hope to see us do in the future. See...right there are 4 entries if you answer all those questions in separate comments. The questions of the day do need to be answered in one comment please as they are the ones that will qualify you for the contest. These comments will NOT be counted toward the monthly contest, ONLY for the 1st year celebration contest.

Thanks again! We’ll see you here on Saturday.

  5. I think having this many posts in the first year is great. I think the first year especially would be hard to set up a routine and get into the swing of things. Congrats on such a successful first year!

  6. I have seen some great events happening on other blogs. Where during a week or month or so, they review similar types/styles of books. This can be about historicals, paranormals, sci-fi, etc. It is a great way to find some new authors & books in a specific genre that you might like.
