  2. I learned a great deal about blog content from this competition. Thanks Ben Martin for bringing this tournament to Virginia and to all the bloggers that allowed us to learn.

  3. Hopefully, you are not going to reverse the results tomorrow and say April Fools to fostercityblog because we are beside ourselves with happiness. Thank you so much for graciously offering us the opportunity to participate in this fun and wonderful event. I have to say that I feel like I practically know some of you by now and have really enjoyed looking at everyones blog. By the way, our Friday Funky Foto Find contest has turned out to be quite successful. You can check it out — where else — on fostercityblog. I think it would run well in Virginia with all of the historical landmarks you have — a lot more photo ops than the lagoons in Foster City. Meanwhile, thanks again. Lydia
