WINNING!

I've read the celebrity gossip/humor site dlisted.com for years. It's not your typical content. The guy who creates the blog, Michael K. is one of the funniest writers I have ever come across. He has such a fascinating and hilarious perspective on the world. This week, I decided to submit some writing entries into the CAPTION THIS contest on dlisted. I thought it would be a nice way to practice my writing and maybe get some new readers to my blog. After a few days of my captions going unnoticed, I am thrilled to announce that yours truly wrote the winning caption for Thursday's contest! There were over 200 submissions, so I am pretty proud of myself. This was actually the second writing contest that I found out I won this week (the other being one for Writer's Digest)! It gave me the motivation that I needed to really work hard on my manuscript. I'm not great at a lot of things but writing has always been something that I loved. It comes naturally to me. Nothing makes me happier than when I know other people are laughing or enjoying what I put together :)

Here is the photo we were asked to create a caption for:



And here is my winning caption along with the runners-up (my handle is SteelCityGirl):

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
