TGIF! and a Contest

Being the slacker you all know I am, I completely missed celebrating my 100 followers when I hit that milestone. And I promised myself that I would not miss celebrating at 150 followers because I never cease to be amazed at your kind, generous, warm response to me and my words.

Anyway, I was gifted with that monumental milestone of 150 on 4/19 and now it’s time to celebrate. I wish I could offer critiques or a fiction contest, but real life is not being kind and my brain is dead.

So to celebrate, we’ll have nice old-fashioned giveaway. Up for grabs are three gift cards. One for $20 and two for $15 from either Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Borders, winners choice.

So how does this work?

The rules are simple. You get one entry for each of the things listed below that you do. Since I’m a low-tech kinda girl, I’m keeping this simple. Each entry you get goes into a hat. At the end of the contest, I’ll pull out a winner.

What do you have to do?

1. Comment here to enter. Your comment gets you (+1) entry. Include any of the following information you have to get more entries.
2. You must be a follower of my blog. New followers get (+1) entry, current followers get (+2) entries.
3. Blog about this contest. That will get you (+2) entries. Leave the link here in your comment.
4. Put this contest in your sidebar. That will get you (+2) entries. Leave the link here in your comment.
5. Send followers my way. Each follower you send me that mention you by name gets you (+1) entry.

That’s it. Easy peasy. Make sure you leave your comments. This contest ends next Friday, 4/30 at 6:00 PM EST, and I’ll announce the winners by the following Monday.

  25. Well I've had you in my Google Reader since Theresa recommended you a while ago, but I'm one of those Wordpress people so I don't think I can follow you as such... I'm not sure how many points any of that adds up to, or for whom :)

  47. I've been blogging almost three weeks, and didn't realize I hadn't signed in as a follower. I've been missing out on some excellent posts and other great information here on your blog. Good luck to all of your many followers, and to you as you continue to pursue your life as wife, mother, writer.

  48. I can't resist a contest! I think I'm joining a bit late to post about your contest, but I like your posts and I'll be sure to come back for visits, so in addition to following this blog I'm adding it to my own personal "frequent list"
