February Blog Contest: First Step to 100!
February brings sleepy groundhogs, gaudy hearts, and President’s Day sales. February is also “National Snack Food Month,” “Jobs in Golf Month,” and my personal favorite, “National Spunky Old Broads Month.”
I admit, it is hard to top “Spunky Old Broads,” but I’m adding “First Step to 100 Month” to celebrate my February blog contest. I considered “Shameless Self-Promotion Month,” but that one is already claimed by a reality TV star.
My goal is to reach 100 followers this year, so I’m starting early. Here’s what I’ll be giving away to thank the faithful and entice the inquiring:
The first prize winner will receive a $20.00 gift card for Amazon.com, always a nifty thing to have for purchasing whatever might tickle your fancy:
Second prize is Stephen King’s “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft,” an awesome read for anyone, writer or not. Here’s the summary straight from Mr. King’s website:
“On Writing is both a textbook for writers and a memoir of Stephen’s life and will, thus, appeal even to those who are not aspiring writers. If you’ve always wondered what led Steve to become a writer and how he came to be the success he is today, this will answer those questions.”
The third prize winner will receive a journal by Peter Pauper Press. Use it to chronicle your dreams, plot your novel, or write your grocery list. Whatever you choose, you’ll do it in style:
Three prizes mean three chances to win! It’s easy to enter. Here’s how:
- Comment and sign up as a follower of Writing in the Buff, or remind me that you already follow. Your name will be entered one time.
- Want to up the odds? Mention this contest on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter with a link back to this blog and let me know you did; your name will be entered a second time.
- Are you an overachiever? Want multiple chances to win? For each person who links from you and becomes a new follower here at Writing in the Buff, his/her name will be entered into the contest and so will yours. Please be sure your pals say you sent them so I know to credit you for the references. The more followers you send, the more times your name will be added into the drawing.
The contest will be open until Friday, February 25th. I will announce the winners on Monday, February 28th. Blog friends outside the U.S. are welcome to join in the fun.
I’m excited about this contest and hope to increase my followers to 100 this year, so stay tuned for more contests and wordplay shenanigans here at Writing in the Buff!
Enjoy your weekend!
P.S. For all my friends buried in snow, I wish you cozy fires, warm snuggle buddies, and an endless supply of hot chocolate (or whatever beverage you prefer to accompany the snuggle-by-the-fire stuff.) Above all, please keep safe.
