Really, what does pumpkin carving have to do with WordPress…or vice versa?? Well, nothing really – – not literally, anyways. But, hey – this is the internet… we can make associations between things that were never associated before.
As Halloween approaches and all the goblins and ghouls come out to play (a/k/a/ those pesky munchkin-types who come to your door looking for sweet treats) – – people also bring out the big, bright orange gourds, otherwise known as pumpkins – and carve them into artistic masterpieces.
Enter Leanne’s 3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. She’s been running the contest for the third year in a row and gets a surprising amount of participants – each of them excited about the possibility of winning the contest, hands down. Here are some samples of winning carvings from years gone past:
The really cool thing is that this is the first year that Leanne is offering up prizes for the winners of the contest – starting with her own donation of a $25 Amazon Gift Certificate!
And some really generous, wonderful and Halloween-spirited author donated a free and autographed copy of WordPress For Dummies. The book is released in the early days of November…. almost making it for Halloween.. just not quite.
So, if ya like Halloween and are planning on carving a pumpkin this year – – snap a picture of it and go on over to Leanne’s place and submit it for fun and excitement — and maybe prizes.
