These photos below are of the official presentation of the 3rd Bloomin’ Onion certificate in the Great Muckville Blog Free Bloomin’ Onion Essay Contest!
Back on January 24th we had the 1st winner, my cousin Lindsey Laprise!
Below are photos and the winning essay! And keep in mind … there is still one left!!!!
Thank you Outback!!!!
Lindsey is a very bright and funny young lady and my second cousin!
Here is her winning entry:
I would like a free blooming onion from outback because the black dirt runs in my family….I love the smell and feel of an onion…..every time I go to the black dirt all I smell is onions and it makes me want to eat a whole one…onions make me cry and i wish they didn’t do that because I should be happy eating or chopping a onion. The blooming onion reminds me of a fair on a nice hot summer day where all you can smell is onion and fried clogging arteries every where you look. This is why I want a free blooming onion cause some Pollocks can’t afford one!
I literally have tears in my eyes in regards to this entry! Onions tend to have that effect, you know!

As I have mentioned multiple times previously my campaign to raise funds for an editor will be featured in an upcoming episode of the new Crowd Funder Show.
My campaign has now been modified. Since I now have a literary agent I no longer need to raise funds for an editor for my memoir. Now I am exploring the creation of a tv show based on my life and experiences, the same experiences detailed in my yet to be published memoir “Muckville!”
What is the Crowd Funder Show and what does it mean to appear on the show? According to their website:
The Crowd Funder TV Show highlights various ideas that have been selected based on their merit for creativity, social relevance, and commercial viability. Each episode focuses the spotlight on six or seven inspiring projects and personal goals that give the viewing audience insight into the campaign, its principal, and the reason(s) why it should come to fruition. The Crowd Funder TV Show highlights various ideas that have been selected based on their merit for creativity, social relevance, and commercial viability.
What is so neat about their crowd funding method, versus Kickstarter’s, is that it is not “all or nothing.” Further, the rewards are much more exciting. Again, from their website:
Viewers can choose to support the projects they watch by contributing directly to the campaign website or by calling a toll-free number. The Crowd Funder Show rewards contributors with sponsored gift cards for the same amount of money they contribute, up to $100. Supporting people and their projects has never been easier so it’s no wonder you can’t help but feel like you’re a part of something special. The Crowd Funder TV Show is an interesting, inspiring program that highlights human ingenuity and co-operation.
When you go to my page you will see locations once can choose from for the gift card include: Sears, Best Buy, Home Depot and Toys R Us. So, if you plan on doing any shopping at any of these locations anyway you are essentially donating to my cause for free. A total win-win!
