    Hi Amy,

    Nice to meet you through Keller’s contest at http://www.fresheventure.com – it should be great fun & a fantastic way for us all to grow. I’m spending a little time every day encouraging more people to join our contest/community – and hope others are doing the same.
    The more we tell others – the better it will be for everyone I think ( and Keller deserves support too for her ideas)

    Are you on Twitter / FB – or any other networks?? I’ve just tweeted about your site and hope it brings you a few new visitors …

    Best wishes from Hamburg

    Will

    Hi ! Its very nice opportunity for blog designer. Who wins this contest, I am sure that person will have increased confidence level. But I would like to say one thing that to play the contest is more important than to win the contest. Best of luck to everybody.

    UPrinting, it IS a great contest! Do check out all the entries, there are some wonderful blogs participating. I don’t know that I’d win, but as Jerry says below, being part of the game is the important part.

    Neo, thanks! I hope you did join and that you do great! I’ve been nutso busy and haven’t gone through all the entries yet. Working on that soon!

    Will, nice to “meet” you and thanks for stopping by! I am on facebook under the name Amy LeForge and on Twitter as @EarnestOne. Thanks for tweeting about the blog, that’s so sweet!! I’m sure I’ll see your site soon when I go through the rest of the entries in the contest.

    Tyra, anyone who was proud of their blog design could join. I hope you did!

    Jerry, thanks for the well wishes.

    Hallo Amy,

    Thanks for your message ….

    1. now following on twitter & FB – thanks
    2. really like this blog , will soon be creating a “Parenting” category on “What A Website” …… and if you’d like to be there please just leave a comment with the usual linking details on the main page.
    3. also like the plug-in that you use below “Submit comment” – it’s very friendly open / /interactive ….. but unfortunately I couldn’t find it ! Could you maybe help me out here???

    Best wishes from Hamburg

    Will, sorry it took me so long to get back! I missed your comment somehow.

    The plugin you’re asking about is called CommentLuv. I am quite fond, but haven’t used it to its full potential. There’s a lot more that it can do. Enjoy!

    Yes, I’d love to be on What A Website! I’ll try to get over there today and comment. Assuming I don’t forget, lol. Have been too scattered lately.

    Great to hear from you Amy & “What A Website” is waiting with open arms whenever you are ready.

    And thanks a million for the help with the plug-in …. for me the very best thing about Keller’s contest has been the willingness of contestants to help each other. Very reFreshing ( if you’ll pardon the pun)

    Ok, looking forward to hearing from you again …

    Cheers

    Will
