Blogophilia Year 14, Season 1 Champion

View Post

I’ve paid my dues
Time after time.
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime.

And bad mistakes‒
I’ve made a few.
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through.

And I need to go on and on, and on, and on.

We are the champions, my friends.
And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end.
We are the champions.
We are the champions.
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world.

~ “We are the Champions” by Queen


To Our Dear Blogophilians: As announced last week, Marvin Martian and the Blogophilia writing challenges will be on summer hiatus after today. Therefore, we have put Year 14 Season 2 on hold, and there will be no new writing challenges shared for now. However, we will keep you posted over the summer regarding our return. The Marvins will pop into Facebook and WordPress every now and then to say hello, check messages and respond if need be.

Bear with us, we do hope to calculate the Lifetime Points soon. We had not done that for the last year or two, and with the discontinuation of Facebook notes this may take us a little while to find and calculate. But once we get that done, we’ll post a separate blog with the complete listing.

We at the Marvin house encourage you to continue writing weekly. We hope we’ve inspired good writing habits for you! 😉 The Ecrits Blogophilia Facebook group will remain open for your use, as a central place to keep in touch with your writing friends if you choose. However, please know that any posts placed in the Blogophilia group, Marvin’s Facebook page or WordPress will not necessarily be monitored. Please continue to be kind and respectful. Any posts should be done with the expectation that Marvin and the other Blogophilians will not necessarily respond or comment.

If you have any thoughts or ideas over the summer, please send via DM to Marvin’s Facebook page. We would like to return refreshed after a hiatus with greater participation, interaction and most importantly FUN for all! So we would appreciate your input.

We thank everyone for your understanding, support, kind thoughts, appreciative posts and wonderful comments last week regarding 14 years of Blogophilia. (We had double the participation rate over the prior week, so we appreciate that!!!) It means so much to us and our alien hearts are full. It was a tough decision to take a break, as we at the Marvin house truly consider Blogophiia our labor of love. You are all very special to us, and we appreciate and love you all. Now get out there and have a WONDERFUL summer – that’s an order! 😉 See ya! ❤

With Alien Love,
The Marvins at The Marvin House

Wishing you One Week Early – Happy Father’s Day!!a wonderful Father’s Day !



Woo hoo! Congratulations to Christopher Mitchell, who is our Season 1 Year 14 Champion! He held on tight during the season to take home the coveted green Corinthian Leather jacket, along with the Week 13.14 jacket! Irene Melgoza finished in second place, shaking her head that she was one mere point from sharing those jackets and indulging in a little Tequila that is stored in the pockets! Christine Wichman slides into third place, and she is looking forward to some traveling adventures (finally) in the coming months! Lika Saliscente-Phipps is embracing the warmth and planning for some delicious fare in her summer kitchen! Colleen Keller Breuning is mapping out her local winery tour, while Tyler Myrth is choosing some delicious IPAs for hot summer days! Last week’s writes and shared memories completely warmed our hearts at the Marvin House. We appreciate reliving those fun times, and look forward to hopefully many more. It has been a wonderful 14 years, and we THANK YOU! Now the biggest question that will burn in everyone’s minds all summer is …. When shall we return from hiatus?
