I received the following e-mail from my editor concerning a writer’s contest I’d entered at a magazine I write for.  Reminder: my pen name is Allan Douglas.   I’m feeling pretty happy right now.

Good afternoon!

Happy to report, our blogger contest for July was a huge success and something we hope to repeat in the near future — we’re currently looking for more awesome prizes for the next one. Thanks to ECHO for donating two quality saws that we know suit our audience well, a couple of CS-590 TimberWolf chainsaws (valued at $399).

The winner of most unique pageviews on a post: Allan Douglas, author of “How to Grow and Use Elderberry Plants,” which garnered 3,098 unique pageviews in the month of July — actually the post performed that well in 1/3 of the month, since it was published on 7/20/16!

The winner of most posts in the month of July: April Freeman, with a whopping 21 posts!

Way to go, Allan and April, and thanks to all of our bloggers who continually offer their country-living insights to like-minded neighbors. We will do our best to bring you opportunities for more cash and prizes in the future.

Allan and April, we’ll be in touch shortly to set up shipping information for your cash prize as well as your new Echo CS-590 TimberWolf chainsaw, just in time for fall!

All the best,

Caleb Regan
