Hi Kerrie La Guardia ,  I had a lot of fun with this contest and was able to talk to a fellow Rainer in the process.  I just finished talking to John McCormack and had a great conversation.

Done but maybe after reading Noahs comment I misrread the rainer to call. I called Steve Darnell because his name starts with an S which is what my last name ends with. Was that correct?

It's been hectic - blogging part is easy - commenting is easy, Q&A is super easy - however, 'pick up that phone, Praful' - which finally I did! Thanks Tammy Lankford ! Although it was a first time call, we never knew when half-an-hour was gone!

Thanks, Kerrie La Guardia - love the cloudburst!

David Shamansky you were right, see Kerrie's #48 comment.  But the original post wasn't clear because it only said who's name starts with the first letter of our last name... it did not specify first or last. I had to ask Kerried to question to find out.

Just finished the contest. The hardest part was finding someone that I have never talked with, even though not part of the contest.

I'm done. The biggest challenge was to reach someone with "I'' in their name. I also have few hyper-local posts, but I used Easter event since it got the most exposure.

Good luck to all who participated and completed all tasks of this challenge!
