ATTENTION HARRY POTTER FANS! IT'S MY FIRST BLOGFEST!
I know there are a lot of bloggers into Harry Potter. I know at least ten of you. And as every Harry Potter-phile knows on November 19th part one of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hits the movie theaters. It should be an amazing film. Visit some of the exciting clips at http://www.mugglenet.com.
Not just for the obvious reason am I telling you about this, I will be leaving in less that two weeks for Orlando, Florida, where the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter is now open at Universal Studios. If you haven't gone to the site it's totally worth visiting. http://www.universalorlando.com/harrypotter/ I have been dying to visit since it opened in June. Since I am not a lover of summers in Florida, I opted to wait until Thanksgiving week.
I will be spending almost all of my time there for the ultimate HP fix. Now it wouldn't be nice of me if I didn't share it with my blogger friends. So, I will be posting pics and hopefully videos for the ten days I will be there ... that is if I can figure out how to do it on my camera. So make sure you check in daily.
Now for the Blogfest!
In honor of HP, I would like to have an HP blogfest. In 500 words, I would like you to create a scene with any of the HP characters from any of the seven books. It could be anything you want. Funny, magical, serious, etc. And for an added twist, let's have it set during the holidays. Christmas or Thanksgiving.
I will choose the top five, and post the finalists. Then I will give everyone a chance to vote on their favorite.
First prize will be a fantastic gift from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It will be special, not just anything. I want the person who wins to be very happy. You'd be amazed at the merchandise they have for sale.
There will also be prizes for second and third place.
On December 11th, I would like you to post your entries. But first leave a comment with your blog or email address if you'd like to participate. You have over a month to write something wonderful.
Please inform your other HP friends of my contest. I would really appreciate it. I would love to meet more fellow HP addicts. This is my first blogfest and I want to do it right.
I hope you are as excited about this as I am. Show your enthusiasm by please leaving a comment.
I'll keep you informed as we get closer to the date. Thanks.
