You Should Really Read This Exciting Post.

...wow.  I am REALLY rusty when it comes to writing post titles.  Not that that was ever my forte...

Um.  Hello, lovely peoples.  Miss Marianne here.

I know it has been AGES  since you've seen a new post on this blog, and I apologize most sincerely.  When we started this blog, Miss Dashwood and I were young and innocent :P and didn't have jobs.  She was still in high school, and I'd graduated and wasn't doing any college yet.  So at the time this was a reasonable undertaking.

Now, however... well, we just don't have the time to keep up with it, especially since we have our own individual blogs.  But that doesn't mean we want it to fall into the void of old blogs that are never updated!

That is why we are asking for your help.  And are having a giveaway.

This is the prize for the giveaway:


I somehow ended up acquiring two copies of this book and it's lovely fun and you will adore it.  For a possibility of winning my extra copy, just do these very simple things...

1. FOLLOW THE BLOG and BECOME A MEMBER
Sorry, you don't get any entries for these.  They're just requirements for the others.

2. WRITE A GUEST POST FOR US
This is the main reason for the giveaway.  We need content!!!  The post can be about pretty much anything you want, as long as it is P&P-related (P&P95-related is ideal).  Even something simply Jane Austen-related might be acceptable.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Here are some details:

  • 1 entry: 10-250 words / minimum of one picture (this could be an observation, a quote, etc.)
  • 2 entries: 250-750 words / minimum of three pictures
  • 3 entries: 750-1,500 words / minimum of five pictures
  • 4 entries: 1,500+ words / minimum of five pictures
You may submit as many as you choose.  If you want an intro/bio/link to your blog, please include this in the post yourself. Submit the post by emailing it to shelvesinthecloset95 at Gmail dot com.  Copy and paste the following into the email to fill out when submitting. 

POST TITLE:
FONT STYLE: [Default, Arial, Georgia, etc.]
ANY SPECIAL FORMATTING NOTES:
CONTENT: [paste here] 
Please attach all images to the email manually.  DO NOT copy and paste images.  Simply indicate where you want the photos placed in this format (example): 
"{PHOTO 3, netherfieldpark.jpg}"
Please DO include the file name so they don't get mixed up if they reorder when you send the email, which sometimes happens. 

3. POST ABOUT OUR RESOURCES
My special request is that you inform other P&P95 fans of the resources on this blog.  The website is designed to be a go-to to find P&P information, not simply a "blog," and I'm not sure how many people know about all the interesting information that is available.

This is worth two entries. Comment below and paste a link to your post.  (It can be a blog or any social media.)

YOUR DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 26TH.  Ready, set, go!

I've made a not-so-subtle pitch for you guys over at Modern Miss Bennet.

I just saw this - I know I'm too late, but it reminded me that I've written a P&P-related post on my blog which might be of interest here. Here's the link: http://frivolitiesandfancies.blogspot.com/2016/09/austens-pride-new-musical-of-pride-and.html?m=0
