Due to the fact that there have been several new additions to the illuminate blog roll over the last few months, I decided to make yesterday’s post a one day only trivia / survey contest. The purpose of this contest was to ‘excavate’ some of the older posts that our newer readers may not have yet read, but also to help us get to know one another a bit more. I look forward to doing more of these kinds of contests in the future.
Yesterday’s trivia / survey was not an easy one at all. Out of the eighty-six articles published on this blog since its inception, I asked our readers to identify the five most read posts. That was not an easy task. In order to win this contest, the winner had to correctly identify the top-five posts in correct order. (I think that might have discouraged more of you from participating) I also asked participants to share their favorite genre of food along with their favorite local restaurants as well.
Without further delay, here is the correct list of the five most read articles on the illuminate blog to date:
In my opinion, there is a profound reason why these top five posts are the most read. That will be the subject of another article in the future, however. Let’s get back to the survey at hand.
We did have three brave souls that decided to throw their hat in the ring yesterday. Unfortunately, there were no winners. They made some great guesses and got quite close, however. That’s not bad considering they had eighty-six articles to sift through! Here is who participated, and what we found out about them:
1. Hannah- Orlando, FL area-
Hannah likes Mediterranean and Spanish food and likes to frequent a couple of places called Bosphorus Turkish Cuisine & Mi Tomatina Paella and Tapas Bar.
2. Ari-Amber- Seattle, WA area
Here is what Ari-Amber had to say about her favorite food and restaurants:
“My husband and I live 30 minutes south of Seattle, WA. We love Mexican food. Ranchito is a restaurant just up the road from us that has amazing mondo margaritas and really great food. But my favorite place is called Taqueria El Rinconsito. It started out as a little hole in the wall place (which is when I best liked going there) and the food is AWESOME! Carnitas y horchata! Yum!”
3. Lindsy- Jackson, MS area
Lindsy says that there isn’t a lot to choose from (regarding places to eat) in her area with the exception of a Chinese restaurant nearby. We need to pray that the Lord would send some good restaurants to Lindsy’s area:)
Thank you Hannah, Ari-Amber, & Lindsy for participating in the trivia contest, and for sharing a bit more about yourselves with the rest of us. It is truly great to have you as readers!
