The SDS Challenge — Results of “Greed” Voting Round

The SDS “Greed” voting round has come to an end.

Here’s the updated logo . . .

If you want to know more about the SDS challenge, THIS Post <<link explains it.

If you want to read the Seven Deadly Sins stories submitted for the Sin of Gluttony and see the results of the vote, THIS POST <<link is what you want to visit.

But, I know few people will bother with the link, so here are the links to the stories and the results of the voting.

Here are the links to the Greed stories (only four more sins to go).

And, here is the result of the poll:

While the Broxsom brothers were neck-and-neck for most of the round, Gary’s peeps came through in a late surge that made him uncatchable.

Congratulations to Gary for the win and Perry for second place. I get to own third place for two — or is it three? — stories in a row.

I can’t really complain much as I tried writing something at the lower word limit and . . . well, let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.

We had twenty-five votes, so that definitively sets a pattern; twenty-five votes per round it is.

I still don’t think this challenge is as popular as the Alphabet Challenge since we’re not drawing new readers like we used to. I suppose it’s because it’s Summer. Yeah, that’s it … dang Summer!

The Wrath stories should go up tomorrow or this weekend (I’m told they are done, but I’ve yet to receive them).

I’ve yet to decide if I’ll contribute something. I won’t win, but perhaps I can play spoiler by grabbing a few votes.

I’ve been busy with other stuff. We painted and redid the last of our closets, painted the last of the bathrooms, put together some furniture, and been busy keeping the eleven feeders stocked for the migrating hummingbirds.

I’m late with this post because I’ve also moved my office around (but I’ve still to decide on a desk) so the computer was uncharacteristically off all day.

As it is, I’m rushing to get this out before a new day (Central Time) comes a-knocking.
