We have a winner!

CONGRATULATIONS to Amy Overton of The Citizen of East Alabama. Amy’s insightful comments on the Meade County Messenger page submitted by Larry See Jr. win her a free pdf copy of 101 Henninger Helpful Hints. Thanks to Larry for the submission—and to Amy for her feedback.

HINTS BOOK COVER FOR BLOGEach month, I’ll award a 101 Henninger Helpful Hints pdf to two winners:

1. The best page of the month.

2. The best feedback comments.

Yes, I get to decide—after all, it is my blog. But if I ever have trouble making up my mind, I’ll let y’all chime in by way of a poll.

If you have other suggestions, lemme know.

Congrats again to Amy O!

The ratings are in!

JUST RECEIVED WORD from Layne Bruce, Executive Director of the Mississipi Press Assn. I had asked Layne to let me know about feedback from my workshop there in mid-June.

z MPA FLYERFrom Layne’s e-mail:

“A total of 17 individuals who took part in our post-convention survey responded to the  item regarding your session. Of those, 6 rated the session “excellent” (highest mark); 5 rated it “very good;” 5 rated it “good;” and 1 marked it “poor.” None marked it as “fair.”

“This is a good response from the crowd in terms of the actual number of responses we typically receive. It also is an exceptional speaker rating from our crowd.

“Thanks very much for being a part of the convention. We look forward to working with you in the future.”

Dunno what the story is behind the “poor” rating—probably something I said.

I’ll take 16-out-of-17 any day!
