We have a winner!

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.

HINTS BOOK COVER FOR BLOGOur 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!

Look! Up in the title! It’s a real apostrophe!

z BLOG TITLEb

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.
