The Six-Word Memoir Blog

Six-Word Caption Contest #7 (and winner #6)

Monday, October 29th, 2012

By meredith

SMITH and Shutterfly’s Six-Word caption contest gets in the holiday spirit this week with a photo fitting for All Hallow’s Eve. By now you may know the drill, but each Monday morning we post a photo from Shutterfly on the Six-Word Memoir project and you have until Friday at 5pm EST to write a six-word caption. One savvy six-word scribe wins a gift certificate for $50 for Shutterfly. So leave your six words that get to the essence of the photo you see here in the comments area below. You can submit up to 10 entries; read the official rules for more details.

Last week hundreds of you bellied up to the bar to describe the photo you see in this blog post. And the winning six is: “Want a little chemistry? Drink this!” by Miss Sally. Thanks to all for playing—and good luck this week.

Plus: The deadline for submitting to our new book of illustrated Six-Word-Memoirs by students of all ages is November 5. And it’s a very special one, an eBook with the folks at the TED conference.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Kudos
