Up for a Giveaway Challenge? Beat this Blog Post!

Since we had so much fun with our first blog post giveaway, we decided to create another one and see where it might lead. Only this time, it comes with a challenge…

Our own Jenna R. London has written a blog post devoted to what we do at Waypoint Writing. But, she’s done so according to rules of her own design, resulting in a hidden phrase, which could read as a command, goal, or one hell of a compelling hashtag. Give it a read to find the phrase and figure out the rule she created to craft this unique blog post. Think you know the answers? Contact us! Only correct entries will be considered, with the winner pulled at random at 5 p.m. on Friday. The prize? A blog post written in this same style, dedicated to your specific brand, which you can then publish on your blog, highlight in a newsletter, share via email, or use for your own giveaway.

Give it a try and contact us with your response ASAP! Good luck!!
