Vote Here for the 2018-2019 SoCS Badge

Voting day is finally here, and we have a record TEN designs in the running for our 2018-2019 Stream of Consciousness Saturday Badge! Our new winner will have his or her badge displayed both here and all around the Internet by whomever participates in the weekly SoCS prompt.

Before we get started, I’d like to say thank you one more time to Jill for her wonderful 2017-2018 badge.

I’m pleased Jill’s back in the running with a new one for this year! Thanks, Jill!

So here we go. The links below will take you to the contestant’s sites, to the posts on which their badges are displayed. Please make sure you have a look at all of them before you vote! I’ll give each a descriptive name which you’ll find both with the link and on the poll for easier voting. I’m not going to vote unless there’s a tie, so it’s all up to you!

Here are the badges in the order they entered the contest:

Ritu, with Silhouette

Pamela, with Leafy Stream

Jim, with Thinking Cap

Best of luck, and may the best badge win!

JusJoJan 31 – We Did It!! 2015 edition

Hard to believe the month of January is done and dusted for yet another year. Just Jot It January 2015 was a roaring success this year, and I have all of you participants to thank for it. 😀

I think the idea of having prompts worked out well for some, so I’ll think about doing that again next year – maybe even one per week or every three days.  Anyhoo, here are the links in case you’d like to read some of the pingbacks.

Prompt # 1 for January 1st to 10th inclusive: reading.
Please visit the prompt post for more details. https://lindaghill.com/2015/01/01/jusjojan-day-1-10-prompt/

Prompt # 2 for January 11th to 20th inclusive: ‘rithmatic.
Please visit the prompt post for more details. https://lindaghill.com/2015/01/10/jusjojan-day-11-20-prompt/

Prompt # 3 for January 21st to 30th inclusive: sex.
Please visit the prompt post for more details. https://lindaghill.com/2015/01/20/jusjojan-day-21-30-prompt/

as well as the main pingback and rule post, where you can find most of them:

https://lindaghill.com/2015/01/01/just-jot-it-january-pingback-post-and-rules/

I promise to get to all the posts in the next month or so. In the meantime, I’d like to invite everyone who joined in to choose their own favourite JusJoJan post and link it in the comments below–please keep it to just one so as not to overwhelm–and I’d like to invite everyone to check out the posts that are linked!

Thanks once again!

Oh, and here’s a present for you! Your official Participant 2015 badge. Grab it and post it as a widget on your blog! Remember, whether you posted your jot every day, or simply jotted down a phone message for a loved one, you’re a Just Jot It January Winner! 😀

Happy February, all!

And the Winner by Popular Vote Is…

Doobster at Mindful Digressions! As it turned out, I didn’t have to make the choice although it was SO close!

Here are the results:

badge pollI said in the voting post that if Doobster won I’d choose which of his badges would be the ultimate winner and I have done so. I took into consideration the comments in his post here: http://mindfuldigressions.com/2014/08/08/i-yam-what-i-yam/ and I also took a close look at both. My reason for choosing this one:

socs-badgeis that unless the two are side-by-side, it’s impossible to tell what the image is in the background of the other one – for me at least.

So that’s that.

Thank you so much to Colleen at Silver Threading and KG at Books, Music, Photography, & Movies for your wonderful entries.

And congratulations to Doobster!
