Black and White Sunday - Emma's visit AND a new contest


Hailey and Zaphod have been entered into the Blogville Calendar contest. Instead of trying to paraphrase the message I got about this, I have just cut and pasted it!  Please vote for them and consider purchasing a calendar. 

Hello friends and thank you for participating in the 2nd Annual Dogs of Blogville Calendar Contest.  We had an amazing turn out this year and are excited for this year's contest to begin.

We thought it would be helpful for you to have a little information that you can share with your friends/readers/voters to help everyone understand the process and have a good time.

  • The post will go up today at 12:00 noon Eastern Standard Time (NYC)
  • Each IP address can vote one time in a 24-hour period, it's important to note that it is one IP address.  If you are a multi-computer household (like I am) you can only vote on one computer/tablet/phone, unless you have different IP addresses for all of them.  If one of your voters tells you they couldn't vote, it is likely they are sharing an IP address with one more than device.
  • Voting will end at 12:00 noon Eastern Standard Time next Sunday, September 1, 2013.  
  • This year the photo with the most votes will be featured on the cover and have their choice of which month they'd like to be featured in as well.  The next top eleven photos (determined by amount of votes) will be featured in order of finish.  Example, the winner chooses to be featured in July, so second place will be in January, third in February and so on.
  • Last year Julie was able to feature all the dogs in smaller photos throughout the calendar, she will do her best to do the same this year, but with so many participants there are no guarantees.
  • Once the voting process has been completed and the winners announced, we will move to the purchase portion of this fundraiser.
Last year's fundraiser raised just over $500 with 20 participants, paws crossed we can double that this year.  

One last thing, Julie and I get no compensation for this, all monies made after the cost of printing and shipping go directly to the beneficiary, with the exception of one calendar each, any more than that and we pay for them ourselves.

We will do our best to resolve any issues that might arise and answer any questions you might have, just keep in mind this being only the second time we have done this, we are also learning as we go.

Good luck and have fun!
