Choosing the top six finalists for the Power of Tension Blogfest was seriously tough. I knew it would be tricky, but I had no idea it would be THAT hard! My
co-host Rachel and I almost came to blows over it…
Okay, that last part was a lie. Considering I live in Australia and Rachel lives in South Africa, you probably guessed that. But we did have some terse emails shooting back and forth across the globe as we narrowed it down to the top six. Why was it so difficult, you might ask? Well, duh. Because there were so many AMAZING entries. I was blown away by the quality and just wanted to say thank you again to everyone who took the time to enter and make this blogfest a success.
Okay, sorry. I’m rambling. This level of responsibility makes me nervous. But I shall dilly dally no longer. It’s time to announce the finalists. Drum roll please…
Our top six (in alphabetical order)
- Damyanti @ Amlokiblogs
- J. C. Martin, Fighter Writer
- Letter to the Cosmos: The Bird Hater
- Of a Writerly Sort
- Trisha @ WORD+STUFF
- Word by Word
Please join Rachel and me in congratulating our finalists!
Where to from here?
Since it was so hard to narrow it down to six, we’ve decided we’re not going to choose who comes first, second and third. Instead, we’re handing that tricky job over to you!
You have until 11.59pm AEST time Tuesday (which is 9.59am Tuesday in New York, if that helps) to cast your vote on who should be crowned The Tension Legend. Choose wisely, because you only get one vote. Rachel and I will announce the winners on both of our blogs at 10pm AEST next Wednesday 8 June (8am Wednesday, New York time).
(PS the poll is working. We’ve intentionally hidden the results from you because we’re mean like that. Plus it will make the announcement of the winner more exciting.)
