Soul Sisters: A Friendship Day Contest

Posted: August 3, 2013

This Women’s Web – contest is all about the power of friendships! Celebrate a woman who’s been a friend, an ally, who means the world to you. 

Girlfriend. Women who’ve struck by you through thick and thin. Ally at the office. Buddy. Shoulder to cry on. Childhood playmate. BFF. Confidante at college. Fellow rebel. Diva. Girl’s night out partner. Soul Sister.

Whatever you call her and whether you call her everyday or once in a month – it doesn’t matter. What matters is who she is to you, and how you feel about her.

As part of this contest, blog about a woman (or many) whose friendship is precious to you. Tell her that what she means to you, and how much you value her friendship. Share a story about what makes your friendship tick – funny, sad, memorable, quirky – let the world know what you and your soul sister have been up to! promotional
