100 Followers and a Giveaway

Tuesday, February 22, 2011


For those of you who've been watching my sidebar, you’ll notice that I’ve just passed the one hundred follower threshold.  Thanks to every one of my readers – whether or not you officially follow me, I love that you visit and read my musings.  When I wrote my first post last July, I had no idea how much I’d enjoy it and how many other wonderful blogs I’d find out there.  To those of you whose blogs I enjoy reading – thank you!

I’d like to pass that thanks along by hosting a giveaway.  Some of my readers are children’s authors, and some love to bake, so I've decided on a prize package to make everyone happy.  One lucky reader will win a copy of New Flavors For Desserts (a Williams-Sonoma book) and a signed copy of one of my books. (Harley's Gift is pictured here because the colours went best with the cookbook.  But you can choose whichever one you want!)

To enter, all you have to do is to be a follower and let me know in the comments section below that you’re interested in winning.  For blogging friends, you can earn an extra entry by mentioning this contest somewhere in your blog and letting me know below that you did so.

The contest will run until March 7 at midnight (EST) and I’ll announce a winner (chosen by random number generator) on March 8.  Good luck!

Congrats on the 100, woo! That's a great idea, to have prizes for both kinds of your readers.

Funny, you're having your giveaway at the same time I'm having my 200 giveaway! Sure, I'd like to be entered. (you didn't say you wanted to be entered on my blog, so come back and say so if you want to!). Have a happy Wednesday. :)

Amazing. Only since July! How did you get so many followers on FB? I have about 1000 hits a day (average) which I think is pretty good, but no followers hardly at all on FB. :(
Congratulations on that incredible achievement and on your very motivating and interesting "musings"!
A book by YOU would be the ONLY way to go for me!!!

Congratulations Beth! I just started blogging and would love to mention you on my blog, but here's the catch. My blog is about turning so-called failure into success. If you have some failure you would like to share with people as a success, check me out! triumphandtears.blogspot.com
