Morning Meanderings… Meeting Bloggers and Announcing a Winner
Good morning! It is Friday! To me that means the end of the week, coffee meet up, project clean up, letters to write, meetings to plan, a work out or two and considering what Easter will be like this year and what should I make….
Yesterday I had the privilege of being part of a round table discussion with the two main actors in the movie The Longest Ride, Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson. I am going to write about that interview tomorrow, but today I wanted to talk a bit about the other people who were at the round table with me.
Going into this “adventure”, I was not really sure who would be in the room. Once I was there I seen it was a group of bloggers. A good group of them were really young bloggers, some even in high school. A couple (thankfully!) were closer to my age.
We went in the room with the actors and we were each allowed to ask one question – I will share with you tomorrow what I asked as I think it was a great question and an even better answer… but that is…
After the interview time, I was speaking to the lady sitting next to me whose name is Ruth and she runs the blog flixchatter. We hit it off chatting about how thankful we were to see each other in a group of young(er) bloggers. We exchanged cards and walked out of the Minneapolis hotel together chatting like old friends (you know how we bloggers are!)
Then… in the elevator on the way down there were a few of us from the interview and I asked them if they were bloggers. (We really did not have a chance to say who we were , where we were from, or what we did). They said yes, and Donna from Donnahup.com handed me her card. I did not really get a chance to chat with her as we were all on our way out, but I did check out her cool website this morning. Her site is all books and movies, crafts and recipes, travel and giveaways. It’s a site you can spend some serious time checking out.
And… my final mention of the morning is I have a winner for the giveaway package I had going for The Longest Ride. Using the magic of Random.org this morning my winner is:
Christina T from Reading Extensively
Congratulations to Christina! She won the $25 Visa gift card, the coveted by me tote, and the book, The Longest Ride! Email me your shipping information at email@example.com and I will pass on your information to have that sent to you. YAY!!!
Have a super start to your weekend. I am thrilled to have the morning to do some catching up as my morning commitment was postponed until next week. It has been a while since I had a free morning and I am taking full advantage. 🙂
