Hi Guys! So I've been thinking about some giveaway ideas and thought I'd get the community to weigh in on some thoughts.. I really like the challenges that you guys have been cooking up. So, why not make it a formal thing? Here's what I propose. Every time you guys do a challenge put it in it's own thread. I can even create a challenges main thread if you want. I don't know if I can move challenge 1 & 2 over.. but I can try.

Now I don't want this to start being a competition or too cutthroat but I thought it would be great way to reward the member who was the most creative (voted on by the members doing the challenge and anyone registered) with a cookbook giveaway. I have a lot of relationships with publishers so this might be a good way to reward you guys for being so darn creative. Smile So does that sound fun? Who wants to be in charge of managing the challenges in case I get too busy with the site?

Well..what do you think?

P.s. if you're an author or publisher, feel free to PM me if you want to be included in our giveaway.

maybe we could all suggest ideas for challenges to you babs, then at the start of each month (1st) you could post one, and we all have until the end of the month to put our entries in??

BABS - You're awesome! I absolutely LOVE it! I also like the idea of you posting the challenges so we are sure that we keep it to the dates assigned. If we post too early on a new challenge someone who only has a day or two left to post on the previous challenge might feel like they can no longer participate in it.

I'm loving this and I'm here to help you if you need it!
