Welcome to the Beauty of a Woman BlogFest V! *tosses confetti* What do you say we celebrate real beauty?
Each year, I’m blown away by participants’ entries; this year is no exception. I’ve perused the posts below and wow. You’re in for a treat! Get ready to think, swoon, learn, laugh and perhaps shed a few tears.
Whether you’re participating as a reader, blogger or both, whether you’re a newbie or veteran fester, I’m thrilled you’re joining us. Thanks so, so much.
In a world where it’s practically an act of rebellion to embrace our full selves and recognize real beauty, the posts and engagement mean more than I can articulate.
Here’s how it works:
Check out the posts below, which are separated into two categories: Original (real beauty in general) and Girl Boner (the beauty of sexuality). Interact as you wish, leaving comments, sharing your faves, etc.! Read on to learn how to enter the prize drawing.
Professional Manuscript Evaluation, from the spectacular Jenny Redbug* – 1 winner
*Not a writer? You can pass this on to a friend or family member!
Global Girlfriend goodies – 5 winners
Five folks will receive a surprise goodie from Global Girlfriend, sponsored by me and Girl Boner®. Each purchase helps a girl go to primary or secondary school through the GROW program (Girls’ Right to Opportunity Worldwide).
For chances to win, do the following between today and midnight PST Monday, May 9th:
- Post a comment below, answering the prompt at the post’s end. 2 points

Prize winners will be announced on my blog on Thursday, May 12th.
For even more fun, support festers by sharing their links and/or the fest on social media, adding the hashtag #BOAW16. Consider following or subscribing to your faves’ blogs or newsletters. The only rule is that we keep things respectful.
