A Twist and An Extended Deadline

I just received an email from the blog author of The Chronicles of Tewkesbury, and I am blown away by the idea she has concocted.

Be sure to do your post for this week's 2 Thing Challenge and by your doing so the Chronicler of Tewkesbury is going to reach into her pocket and give $5 to charity. How cool and in the spirit of the season is that?

Want to know even more?

I know you regular 2 Thing'ers are going to love this. And for those of you who have considered it, but have yet to jump in, now's the time. Remember it doesn't have to be a photograph. It can be a poem, a drawing, a painting, a collage, a textile, a song, anything you can think or dream up and post on your blog. Let's be the change we'd like to see in the world. Or, another way to say it, let's be holders of real value.

P.S. Feel free to pass on the word on your blog. The extended deadline is Wednesday December 19th.

Oh wow, what a HUGE difference you've made here! I thought I had gotten a different blog at first!! Wow.
Oh and how nice, lovely, generous, wonderful and amazing are you offering to match the money!! That sort of gift certainly hold(s) value!

Ok, Chronicler of Tewkesbury and Debi, get out your wallet and count me in!

And, oh yes...I do love the new logo. The red is a nice touch! Plus the subscribe widgit is nice, very nice.

I liked the old blog look better, myself. But it was created by One who knows more about CSS and templates than me and who made it from scratch. When I tried to add the email widget the first time, I lost the ability to add anything after that, so I had to re-start from scratch. I could have worked hours to figure it out, but with the possible new traffic in its way here I had to think quick.

So...a quick Blogger cookie cutter template it had to be.

All done:)

Lisa: I've just added you to the update on my blog.

Also, Debi: I don't want to screw up the calendar for Two Challenges here. I hope/wonder (?) if you'll post a new challenge on Sunday, Dec. 16, in keeping with the calendar here...??? I just used the 19th on my blog so people would have a week.

Debi said...

Hi J.M. Ok, here's a solution. I'll go ahead and post a 2 Things on Sunday as per usual. But if some stragglers come in for "Hold/Value" (through Wednesday), they will be part of the donation tally. Win/Win.

Win/Win. Sayyyyy....I am tempted to think I've found next Sunday's 2 Things. ;)

A very generous offer from Chronicler of Tewkesbury. Interesting to see what Bobbie comes up with as I haven't seen one from her yet(!) which is a shame but I see she is rearing to go lol. I have come up with one.

Hi Debi,

This looks great!! I love it!

I hope it is ok that I copied and pasted the whole post on my blog to advertise it. Cause I did.

I will be doing mine but I am not there yet.
