PPBC 9 Call For Articles: Birthdays!

Birthdays are special days, especially if you're a parent. It's the day when you finally see your kid for the first time, and parents usually celebrate it in a far grander fashion than their own birthdays!

What can you say about birthdays? Did you celebrate your kid's birthdays with a big bash? Or a trip? Or just a simple celebration at home?

Was there anything significant that happened during your kids' birthday?

Were you happy about how your kid's birthday celebration went?

Any special memories?

Any other thoughts?

Let's unleash our creativity. This edition's PPBC focuses on birthdays. You can talk about anything relating to birthdays, especially but not limited to your kid's birthdays. It could be your own, your spouse', your parents, whatever! You can make a poem, a story, a video...whatever hits your fancy. Be fun, be creative, be serious...the choice is up to you!

Submit your entries by commenting on this thread with the permalink of your entry.

Deadline is on October 5, 2008. I'll try to come out with the roundup by October 6, 2008.

More guidelines on the PPBC here.

Hi Joey! I have a theme in mind for the October round. When should I send a call for articles?
I just saw this round today. Can I still make an article?

I guess I posted mine way in advance. :) I wrote about my daughter's birthday parties in a couple of posts.

HERE is my recent post that also contains the links to my previous posts about the topic. It's like a series, actually. :)

Thanks for the invite!

Hi Doc Joey,

I think I have now enough time to join again since I decided to leave my work, and be a professional blogger for now.

I also hope that we can still communicate a lot even I will leave Entrecard.

By the way, you are among the blogs that I still want to visit and subscribe but I cannot find your subscription widget. I hope you can provide one in your sidebar, especially to your Joey MD blog.

I super duper feel sad na hindi ako naka-contribute this month. Hay, I've been caught up with so many things kasi eh. I had it in my mind but never got a chance to write it. Sayang. Next month na lang ulit. I'd still be posting one kasi nag-birthday na anak namin eh :)
