No, the next contest will be the second ever contest. And so on and so forth until I no longer have contests because I ran out of fingers and toes...and blog followers with patience for my ramblings.
I realized that Friday will be my blog's one month mark. So I decided to celebrate my achievement of blogging what I consider regularly for one month. As of the time I'm writing this post, I have exactly 25 followers. I don't consider that a bad following. Not enough to start my own cult yet...but I'm working on it. :)
So, says you, how do I enter this first ever contest?
Well, says I, you just need to mention my blog on your own blog (preferably saying good things...but it's not a requirement). Then note in this post's comment box that you did so by Thursday 5/21/09 at 5:00 Pacific Time. No, I am not going to check your blogs (though I already do on a regular basis (i.e. daily, or semi-daily) (you didn't expect to see so many parantheses in one sentence did you?)) but I know we are all honest writers here. I will then do a random drawing for one lucky winner.
So, says you, what is the prize?
Well, says I, I originally thought of sending you some Nora Roberts books. But not everyone loves her the way I currently do, and it would cost a ton to ship. So, to your utter relief, the prize is a $10.00 Target gift card. If you win and do not have a Target nearby, I will change it to a store or website of your choice (within reason- I'm not driving 30 miles to get you a card so you don't have to drive 30 miles to use it- yeah, I'm not nice). Oh, and limited to the US because I don't know how to ship international...yeah, I'm that bad- I don't even know where the post office is around here.
So for those of you skipping to the end of this post, here's the nitty-gritty:
