It’s September and I am looking forward to the annual online Family Proclamation Celebration!
There are lots of neat things being given away, I think, but I hardly ever enter into those because I feel like I don’t want to take away someone else’s chances for winning something they might really, really wish they could have but may not be able to afford it.
Plus, I have contest immunity.
I cannot win at one unless there is a skill involved in the winning process (and even that’s a long shot!). I have tried.
In fact, I recently tried to win two cameras at the fabulously cute Six Sisters Stuff blog, and I thought I might have a chance, because a skill was involved. It was “liking” all these pages on Facebook. It proved to be almost beyond my capabilities! It took me ten minutes to like all of those pages, and even longer to unlike them when I (surprise, surprise) didn’t win.
I also felt dishonest for ‘liking’ “I Heart the Mart” (referring to Wal-Mart, which I don’t heart. In fact, I think I anti-heart it) and “Mod Podge Rocks” or something.
I also liked all these pages about being frugal, which I am not.
I have frugal immunity, too.
All my friends usually wait until after I buy something before they consider buying it, because it inevitably goes on sale five seconds after my transaction is completed.
But, that was a tangent.
What was I talking about? Oh, yes–celebrating the family! Which is great. A cause I can believe in, unlike hearting the mart. And let me tell you, I really am excited, and I don’t have to win anything. I just really love seeing so many bloggers coming together to celebrate my raison d’être, if you will.
I also got to design this year’s logo, which was kind of really neat to do.
Also, I was asked to write for the bash. I felt particularly humbled, because as we all are very aware, I don’t think I have quite made it to the ranks of real bloggers yet. Also, they asked me to write about homosexuality as it relates to the Proclamation, which was not a very easy topic, especially considering that another blogger known as (Gay) Mormon Guy is guest posting…
So, I am not sure how I did. I do know that I procrastinated as much as possible and that I also did my best, but you never know what that might end up looking like considering I am completely capable of embarrassing myself to the fullest extent allowed by the universe.
In the end, though, it’s not about how much I might crash and burn, it’s about family. And it really is incredible that all these people get together to talk about it in a positive way. Awesome.
So, check it out–starting September 17th and going through the end of the month!
