We Have a Winner!

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to now introduce to you America's Next Top Obscure Guest Author:

Becky Shippen-Olsen!

After a long, grueling competition, Becky has finally risen as the morning sun to take her crown as America's FIRST Top Obscure Guest Author.

This competition, as you'll recall, began months ago. I wanted to create an opportunity for my readers to become a bigger part of my blog. I came up with a list of those who frequently left comments and put them all in a giant poll, encouraging the finalists to campaign for themselves. I was hoping it would be well-received by the contestants, and thus drive readership to ASB. After weeks of elimination rounds the field was sliced down to two: Becky and Jeris Hobbs.

The race was close for a while, but Becky's furious campaigning proved to be too much for the feeble Hobbs.

Now Becky is the winner, and I must say I couldn't be happier. Her tenacity and enthusiasm is unmatched, and I'm confident her guest-authored post will be a thing of beauty.

Thank you everyone for participating, voting and being so patient. I hope you all enjoy Becky's post when it comes. Thanks for reading.
