HARPs Featured Image

*UPDATED 2/5/2018

Annnnnnd it’s time for another round of the HARPs contest! *foghorn* (that sound is so annoying, I don’t even know why I added that in here)

Anyway, good job to everyone who posted 🙂 I was kinda drained when I read all your HARPs posts yesterday so I just trusted your points tallying 😛

If your name is in bold, that means I got your submission(s) for this round. If your name is in italics, that means I got your comment as to why you couldn’t post for that round and I’ll give you 5 points to make up for it!

*Let’s welcome Rose and Kate to the Ladybug team!!! I gave them 10 points each to make up for the rounds they didn’t get to post.

COME ON TEAM LADYBUG! YOU CAN DO THIS!

If I missed you out, please let me know and I’ll update the post ASAP!

Here are the rules…

  1. You CANNOT copy or duplicate anybody else’s post. If I see that a post like yours has already been posted, I will (try to) let you know. I’ll also not count that as your submission. But if your post has some similarities with others’ posts, that’s fine.
  2. You must get your post for that particular topic up within one week after I put up the topic. Any posts posted after the deadline will not be counted (and I don’t think I can afford extended deadlines)
  3. You’ve gotta tag each post with #HappyAndRandomPosts and/or HARPs (like how I did in this post)
  4. Comment your posts and their link down below every HARPs on my blog.
  5. Have fun!!! 🙂

Little Challenges Guidelines…

Little Challenges (aka LC) are small challenges you can complete while typing your posts up. (eg. insert the word “fun” in your post.) Once you complete the Little Challenge in ONE post, (no matter how many times you perform it in your post) you immediately earn 2 points. They’re not necessary, but they’re another way for you to earn more points for your team. Please bold the part where the Little Challenges come in if not I have to search for it 😛

And point system…

  1. Post a post related to the topic. You can post more than once each week.The maximum amount of times you can post is 3 times (per week) which means you have 3 chances to earn 3 points!! (total of 9 points) (3 points per post related to the HARPs Contest)
  2. Submitting photos related to your HARP which are taken by you (2 points per photo)
  3. Completing Little Challenges (2 points)
  4. Another thing! If it is possible, please try to calculate the amount of points you collected in one post and state it either at the end or at the beginning of the post! It will make things so much easier and faster and less confusing for me 🙂

Please read the last three sections above very carefully and thoroughly!

Round 3 Topic:

FREE TOPIC

Yeah you read that right! Since last round’s topic was somewhat hard, I decided to make this round easy. But now that I think about it, it’s doesn’t seem that easy. Here are some guidelines to help you:

  • Don’t make the post(s) depressing (after all, this contest is called the Happy and Random Posts)
  • Post something you have been planning to post
  • Post something cheerful, encouraging and uplifting

Round 3 Little Challenge:

Link to a blogger who is somehow related to your post (if you link to me, it doesn’t count)

Please submit your entries for this round’s link(s) in the comments down below *points down* by the 7th of May midnight!

If you have any questions or things to state or just want to say something, just pop them into the comments below!

Happy Monday! 🙂

  1. I’m sorry Starling, but Team Ladybug is not participating enough to make this fun for me. It’s obviously not your fault, and I don’t want you to feel bad – could you get someone else to take my place? – but I’m not enjoying this at all. It’s not just because the team is in last place – a high percentage of the team isn’t adding to the point count! I’d like to be removed from the team. (No offense to the teammates who were posting!)

  2. This is both easy and hard at the same time. 😂 I want something that includes lots of pictures again, but I don’t want to do a repeat post too.

      1. Sorry, changed my mind on my HARP. 😛 I’m now wondering if it counts if we just take pictures of the same picture we drew over and over? (Like, of different parts of it?) And each photo of the picture is worth 2 points each?

  3. UGH I didn’t submit again!! I’m really sorry! I think I’ll have to drop out. 😦 I don’t have time to take photos with my Mom’s camera. And I’ve been busy with rehearsals for the Sound of Music. I’m sorry, I should’ve dropped out last round! I hope you can find someone for Team Ladybug! ❤

      1. Hmm excellent question… I don’t think they should count as photos because they… aren’t actually photos (pictures) so… No 😦

  4. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but
    I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up
    my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Thank you
