Happy Thursday, and Happy Week 100! Wow–what a milestone for this little weekly link party of ours!

I know you guys have already heard me mention that the spring session of Elite Blog Academy  will be opening in just a few weeks, on April 14th, but today I have some even MORE exciting news! We are giving away SIX full scholarships to our spring class, which means you might have a chance to attend for FREE! You can enter to win HERE. (Don’t worry–you only have to enter once to be entered into all six drawings!)

In other news, our Secret 13 Essay Contest finalist this week was Missy. You can read her journey here. There are only 3 days left to submit your essay for a chance to win an all expenses paid cruise for four on the Carnival Sunshine, so be sure to check out all the details HERE!
