The Contest Of Whatever

Must come up with something groovy, man...

Must come up with something groovy, man…

After a wild few months in which I won or was gifted an embarrassing amount of cool things from my fellow bloggers, I decided in February 2014 to give back and created The Contest of Whatever.  Anyone with a blog could play along, and all that was required was to come up with something creative that could be shown off in a blog post that followed the minimal set of conditions I set for the competition.  I would choose one winner on merit and another from a random drawing who would each get to pick an item from my Cafepress shop valued at $20 USD or less.
