MONTHS AGO, I PROMISED to send pdf copies of my two books to the 100th follower on Twitter. It has taken a while, but I now have 100 followers…and Kyle Stephens at The Times-Leader in Grifton, NC has the books. Good for Kyle. Good for me. Good for this blog!

THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE NEW to this blog may not be aware that every month I name two winners—one for the best page submitted the previous month and one for best comment.
Our September winners are: Michael Smith, for best page(s) and Lauri Shillings for best comments.
Michael’s pages have drawn numerous “oooohs” and “aaaaahs” here and he’s a strong contributor to Ed Henninger’s Blog. Keep ’em coming, Michael!
Lauri’s comments are always helpful and constructive and she, too, is a consistent contributor.
Both will receive a free pdf copy of 101 Henninger Helpful Hints.
Congratulations to Michael and Lauri!
I’VE PROMISED that each month I’ll give a pdf copy of 101 Henninger Helpful Hints to the designer of the best page submitted to Ed Henninger’s Blog and to the person who offers the best comment on submitted pages.
July’s best page—without doubt—was submitted by Kristin Coker of The Times and Democrat in Orengeburg, SC. The page is a standout.
Comments by Will Franklin on a couple of other pages by Kristin (clocks and Harry Potter) were thorough and helpful.
Congratulations to Kristin and Will!
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.
Each 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!
THANKS TO DAVID MERRILL, IT and Graphics Manager at Oregon Newspaper Publishers Assn., I now have a real apostrophe in the blog title at the very top of this (and other) pages!
David had promised that he would help me find a way to get that apostrophe…and he kept his promise.
His note began: “To quote a familiar bard, ‘Yes we can!'” And he did.
An ampersand here and a semicolon there and a few numbers thrown into the mix and I have…an apostrophe!
It was a great Independence Day holiday gift for me. And David gets a free pdf copy of 101 Henninger Helpful Hints as a thank-you.
Ahhhhh, I’ll sleep better tonight knowing the typography gods are once again smiling upon me.
