I owe the very deepest of apologies to the four stalwart contestants who have waited weeks for the results of their entries to Monday Mixer. A combination of some unexpected holiday season depression and then some not-so-unexpected but nevertheless debilitating Internet issues that compelled me to go to extreme measures to ensure the problem will not hamper future contests, resulted in these results being long, long overdue.
In a previously unprecedented move, I am awarding the winners badge to all four contestants as my way of saying thank you for your patience and for your skills. I hope to see each of you return for the next round. So to: Nick Johns, Ruth Long, drmagoo & Lupus Anthrtopos...congratulations. Claim your badge with pride in an accomplishment well done.
Please bear in mind my decisions are entirely subjective and may not find favor or agreement with all, but decisions are like that. For those writers not mentioned, no slight is intended and I hope next week will find you back for more.
Here is the link to view and read all of the truly inspired offerings for this week. Please show a little Monday Mixer love and make a point of clicking on each entry and checking them out. Remember, each link clicked on takes you directly to that particular writer's page and provides them blog traffic and, hopefully, feedback to encourage them to come out & play next week.
