BTR Summer Quotes Contest: Week 2!

We're so excited to unveil The BTR Summer Quotes Contest to our hosts! This is a great way for you to get more exposure for the great content you are creating on the network.

Here's How It Works

Each week by Friday, you can submit an original and notable quote that was captured on one of your recent episodes (within the last 6 months) on our community forum. In your submission, you will need to include who said the quote, the timestamp of when the quote was said on your show, and a link to the actual show. Once we've collected all of the quotes for the week, we'll open it up to voting from the public (BTR hosts, listeners, etc.) to decide what the quote of the week is. Voting will close on Monday mornings. On Tuesday we will announce a winner.

To Vote, simply go to the post of your choice below, and press the Star icon that says "Good Point". The quote with the most stars at the end of the week wins!

What Do You Win?

Each week, one winner will get exposure for their quote and show on the network to millions through the following BlogTalkRadio channels:
Twitter

Blog Post
Staff's Pick on Homepage
Monthly Host Newsletter
An Example Quote

You want to pick out a really stellar quote to submit - maybe one that is hilarious, shocking or breaking big news. Here's a great example of a quote from actor, Jason Biggs telling BTR host Robin Milling about his acting woes on television: "I was foolish enough to go and do another TV series last year which got cancelled after 13 episodes, called Mad Love. Screw it, I'm not doing TV anymore!"

The Contest In A Nutshell

Submit quote entries by Friday afternoon; Public voting closes on Monday morning (Don't forget to tell everyone in your network and all of your listeners to vote for your quote!); Winners announced on Tuesday.

    @ 09.46 by our co-host Medium Barbara DeLong on Almost Heaven with Lizzy and Hazel -while discussing the true meaning behind the number 666 and peoples thoughts on where this number comes from...

    “I don’t think it is evil it’s ignorant. I think that humanity; we have got a lot to learn. We have a lot to open to and if we want to hang onto and cling to the antiquity and what the fear from the past has placed in our hearts and our minds then go for it... Frankly I go for peace love and joy”.

    Quote from author and scientific hand analyst Linda Salazar while being interviewed this week on the Feminine Soul Radio Show:

    13:51 - When we understand ourselves at such a deep level we then can go out in the world and be who we really are in our most authentic way and therefore have the confidence to be that way with others.

    Here's another great quote from the same show:

    Talking about the Goldie Locks’ rule in life:

    27:25 - We either can be too much of something or we can be too little of something, and when we understand who we are on an emotional level than we can try everything on for size to get to our “just right” place and that is when our relationships just blossom.

    The Neo Soul Show is show that sheds light on independent artists in soul and neo soul music. We were blessed to have Australian singer Yasmine Amari call in from Australia and she praised us when she said,

    "It's a real honor to have this opportunity with you guys because you guys
    supporting independent artist such as myself, is just fantastic because it's
    so many upcoming talent. Neo soul and soul are something that is really
    close to my heart because it's the most honest...there's an integrity behind
    lyrics in neo soul which I really connect with and that's the kind of artist
    that I am. Deep and truthful and real and honest."

    It Matters embraces Humanity through the Arts, Books and Open Communication. Tony Marren of Operation Just One Can had a bit of insight with this quote:

    "Sometimes extraordinary lessons are taught in only a few moments of time. Having witnessed individuals dumpster diving for food, seeing single mothers holding signs asking for money while their kids stand next to them crying, or scanning articles and reading how food banks across the United States are running out of resources - we are in trouble. The news reports related hundreds of thousands of Americans per month recently losing employment opportunities.

    I cannot easily erase these experiences. These memories have burnt into my brain a painful message that individuals are suffering and I should do my bit to create a realistic contribution to this scenario."

  • Show: Two Old Sales Guys and the Sales Diva

    Hosts: Cindy and Alan Goldsberry and Tom Ackerman, Authors

    Quote:

    Cindy: “I’m not going up the scale right, yeah you're unconsciously competent... you start by being unconsciously incompetent and then you become consciously incompetent, and so... then you become unconscious and then you become consciously competent...”

    Alan: “That’s why our slogan for the radio show is “We’re Not Dead Yet!” We may not be fully conscious and we’re not dead yet and not buried yet. You know there’s a lot of people who are dead, but not buried.”

  • Hi Shannon, can you please let me know if you can only win one quote contest at a time? I know I won last week but one of my guests wanted to participate as well and she was promoting this like crazy so I do need to tell her why she didn't win. Please let me know so I can tell her what happened.

    Please note that I did call last week about this and they did tell me I could run again so I'm a little confused about it. Thanks.

  • PRAYER LINE ON THE SCENE,JUST KEEPING IT REAL!
    WE SHINE THE LIGHT ON REAL LIFE ISSUES!
    URGENT CHALLENGES

    Our soldiers: We shall hold up our brothers and sisters who are going out to war with the words of Deuteronomy 31:18 “The Lord himself goes before you and with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged”. And the words of the great warrior David in Psalms46:1- “God is your refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble”.

    Violence: We urge all people to stop killing one another by means of a gun, drugs, or any type of violence. Innocent bystanders are being severely injured and/or murdered (someone’s mother, brother, sister, son, daughter and friend). We must say out loud, Stop killing one another – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! We are often outraged when our own is killed by the other and often silent when the killing is done by our own. Killing is sin regardless of who the perpetrator is. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” – Psalms 133.1
    We will be on our knees until violence in whatever form is stopped, acknowledging the sovereignty of our Lord “He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.” – Isaiah 2:4 we shall not allow this vicious cycle to go on for generations, neither shall we continue to tolerate bigotry, police brutality, high school shootings, terrorist acts, hate crimes or putting up with any other insidious behaviors. We must find better ways to settle our differences and bring peace to our communities, we know prayer works! So let us take PRAYERLINE ON THE SCENES, OUT TO THE LAND. JOIN US AMEN!
    Gangs: Gangs have made our streets and our homes unsafe. WE do pray for our children to avoid bad company and be engaged in righteous activities, may they realize that “ bad company corrupts good character” – 1st Corinthians 15:33, and that the LORD tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence. Psalms 11:5
    Rape: It is absolutely disturbing to know that ABUSE (of any kind, at any age and any gender), is happening so frequently, at a rate that is more astounding than we can possibly imagine. When we hear about sexual assaults, we immediately think of men raping women; however, that is not always the case. Apparently, women raping women is not as uncommon as one would think; it’s just not reported as often as it occurs, particularly those that involve young girls. Young girls are having their innocence stolen at a very young age by grown women who prey on them, and unfortunately, not a word is spoken about it because the girls are too embarrassed, fearful, ashamed and feel at fault that they brought this on themselves, to such an extent, that they stay silent about the harm that has been done to them. THIS MUST NOT BE! LET US GET UP!

    Who said the quote: The host, SP
    Timestamp: Towards the beginning of the broadcast
    Podcast link:
    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/spshow/2...
    Meaning of quote: "I knew that from the start" conveys the thought that sometimes one can predict how an athlete is going to perform and the host, SP, saw that a specific athlete is fresh out of college and is proving himself in the professional league. The show itself specifies the thoughts of the guys and what to look out for and expect in sports to come and a recap of what's gone on. Sometimes the wrong person gets blamed for example in the specific game we were analyzing, the leader of the offense was being blamed when the team as a whole was committing mistakes and the offense was not even the problem. As some say, "Defense wins championships not offense". As many points you score, it does not matter if it is a scoring fest. If there is no defense it is not going to be a competitive matchup. Period.

We just need to start supporting people more and letting people know this is the way I am, this is the way I'm going to be, and you just got to get over it."
