When I started this blog back in 2007, I had high hopes that it would bring attention to this wonderful place in which we live: The Louisiana Wetlands. I wanted to educate folks about the beauty here and the unique culture and way of life, which are so closely tied to the wetlands that are disappearing at an alarming rate.
I hope I have somehow done that . . . on some scale.
Lately I’ve been looking back at some of the original posts and looking at the number of comments. Most of you new readers have not had the time to back to the beginning and read all the posts from then until now.
If I must say so myself, some of the earlier posts were pretty entertaining. Therefore, I’m going to offer you an incentive to do some archival reading.
I have thousands of photos taken while out and about living life here in these wetlands. I do not sell my photos, YET. I will be doing so in this coming year. Meanwhile, I would like to share my photos with you, which I used to do quite often here at Bayou Woman.
Here’s how the treasure hunts will work.
Go to the left-hand menu on my home page. Click on Posts by Month. Scroll down to the months listed in contest rules. Read the questions first, then read all the posts, and leave a comment with your very specific answers to the numbered questions. All correct entries will go into a random drawing for an 8 x 10 original BW photo, suitable for framing. (I will send you proofs from which to choose based on your area on interest.)
This is the first in a series of contests. So, here we go . . .
Treasure Hunt No. 1 :
August 2007 through October 2007 Posts
1) What kind of fish has teeth like a human?
2) What is my youngest son’s nickname?
3) What kind of fish was used for the crab cakes?
4) Where did the travel writer who traveled the farthest come from?
5) Name two things I lost while “paying my dues”.
6) List every specie of fish we caught in the month of October.
This might take a while, so I’ll give you a couple days to work on it. It’s not a gazillion posts, just a few. Some of them are mostly pics, anyway. You could theoretically be finished with this in as little as an hour, depending on how fast you
Baby, it’s cold outside, so get your Snuggie (eegads), your hot beverage, and pull yourself up to your computer and get ready to read, read, read.
Good luck on the contest, my reader friends!
CONTEST OVER! Steffi is the winner! She will receive an email asking her what subject matter of photos she would like to see proofs for, and then she will select one for her 8 x 10 prize!
