But I did forget a couple things when closing up shop last night, and I didn’t want to leave them hanging out there like regrets or Mitt Romney’s stare… waiting for some kind of acknowledgement.
Make sure to go congratulate the Winner of Season 8: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/604633.html
and Tell Your Friends about the Friending Frenzy/Wrap Up Party: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/604775.html
In my “thank you”s: Thank you to spydielives for the site graphics for the season, and the official “wheel icons”!
Also, thank you to teaberryblue for the “alternate theme” of that really cool looking lightning bolt!
Thanks to kithan, kittenboo and boxsofrain for what they were able to do in the assisting department, and as always thank you to my Numbers (you call them “winners”), friends and of course Cynthia, for keeping me from completely losing it during parts of this season. You know what parts. ;)
Friend o’Idol – you know and love her - alycewilson is starting back up her Wild Violet site http://www.wildviolet.net/, so if you’re just sitting around doing nothing anyway, you might want to go check it out and some of their “mini contests”. Might be fun.
Several people have asked about the donation button, and if they can still “throw some money in the tip jar”. My response is, “of course you can!” I added it to the user page of the community. Or just use my email address at paypal! :D
I’m trying to figure out how to do that “Amazon affiliate” thing. But my understanding is that you can set up links for stuff you want to promote. Which means that I’m definitely going to be promoting “Idol affiliated books”, which I know several folks out there either have them, or are working on them, so shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want me to include them!
(You know, stuff like the first Idol book: http://www.amazon.com/Idol-Musings-Sophie-N-Childs/dp/0473151006/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346435153&sr=8-1&keywords=idol+musings
or the second: http://www.amazon.com/Idol-Meanderings-Sophie-N-Childs/dp/1908599014/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346435188&sr=8-1&keywords=idol+meanderings
or a number of the other books put out by people who have competed in Idol! )
I hope you are having a good day, extended weekend and of course have a great break! I’ll see you… well, at some point down the road. :D
