No, my name's not on there, but I did enter on a lark. I think I won't enter again for a long while. People who are familiar with my blog know that I impulsively subscribed to the magazine and wasn't altogether impressed with it on a consistent basis, enough so to rant about their style for more than a few blog posts. Not to say that those people don't deserve kudos for having shown up on the list, they totally do. However, I've definitely decided it's not really the market for me.

Thanks for reading,
