Cyber Contest: Win Prizes from Amazon!

Prizes, anyone? Rebecca Laffar-Smith has kicked off a contest to launch the new design of her blog: Writer's Round- About.

Oh, but don't think you can just do a cyber drive by and drop a comment. No, Rebecca is going to make you work for what you get!

She expects each person to follow the rules to a T. If you think you stand a chance at winning, you'll have to create an outstanding entry before she'll even consider handing over one of the three Amazon Gift Certificates: $100 goes to 1st Place, $50 to 2nd, and $25 to 3rd.

Writer's Round-About Review
For quite a while now, I've frequented Rebecca's blog. I've followed her Stargate Writing Series, and have watched her heart, soul, and words flourish until it's brought me to tears. I'm telling you, if you haven't already, you absolutely must subscribe to Writer's Round-About's RSS Feed!

Not only is Rebecca a freelance writer, editor, fantasy novelist, and blogger, she also has quite the keen eye for web design and choosing complimentary colors.

Writer's Round About's new design is very easy on the eye and to me, organized. I, personally, enjoyed her beautiful and cheerful photo she originally had located in the header, but then I'm not a web designer.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the new look and enjoy absorbing this writer's knowledge each time I visit. I simply cannot complain about such a marvelous site!

Well, I guess I could share just one gripe: I'd LOVE to be able to preview my comment before hitting submit!

I was elated when I stopped by one day to read one of my top favorite blogs and noticed this post: WRA's New Design Launch Contest! I thought I was dreaming!
