One-Liner Wednesday Badge – Vote Here!

All the entries are in and now it’s time to vote for our new One-Liner Wednesday Badge! The badge that wins will be displayed here on prompt day and everywhere there is a One-Liner Wednesday post published for at least the next year to come, so vote carefully.  Anyone, whether you participate in the prompt or not, can vote.

I’ll name them all to make it easier for voting purposes. Please make sure you look at all of them before you cast your vote. Here are the contestants in order according to when they entered:

Willow, with “Typewriter”

Dean Kealy, with “Splashes on Purple”

John Holton, with “White on Blue” (it’s at the bottom of the post)

KG, with “1W”

Pamela, with “Squiggly Line”

Wes, with “Quotes”

And Dan Antion, with “Clouds and Contrails”

The poll will close on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016 at 12:00 noon, EST (-5 GMT).

Best of luck to all the contestants!!



Before I post this week’s One-Liner Wednesday I want to record the results of our poll. Since I can’t close a poll and just leave it there (there’s a section to set an expiration time for voting but it seems useless), it seems the poll will remain open on this post.

I’m capping it off here:

hashtag poll

As you can see the decision is definite. Our new hashtag is Mr. John Holton’s suggestion of #1linerWeds.

Make sure you use it in your one-liner post this week!

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: 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!
