Guest Author Jennifer O'Connell actually sent B4B winners DAYS AND DAYS ago, but sadly, due to Hurricanes and server issues, it never made it to my inbox. SO! She re-sent. The grand prize winner shall walk away with a signed copy of Jennifer's book OFF THE RECORD which was the inspiration for this month's theme.

Here's Jennifer:

First of all, this was not easy! Really, I didn’t expect the entries to be so wonderfully diverse and interesting. I wish they could all win, because it was obvious that they all put a tremendous amount of thought and heart into their blogs. Everyone did an amazing job linking songs to our lives, and their stories were so honest, I was just blown away. But, because I have to pick, here are my top three:

1. Just a Normal Day

2. Red Shoe Ramblings

3. Milliner's Dream

Thanks, and please let all of the entrants know how amazing I thought they were. Really.

I was blown away by this month's entries (as if my thoughts meant jack.) This month's topic must have struck a cord, because they were great. I know they struck cords with me.

Congratulations to all of the winners. It was an honor to be in the finalist group with all of the excellent posts this month!

Joshilyn, I'm always willing to be a pre-screener if needed....

What a fun affirmation of my love for writing. I haven't entered a writing "contest" since high school, folks...at age 44 this was a blast to write (and to be chosen for 3rd "place"!) :)

Thanks, Hannah of Milliner's Dream
