Win a $45 bookstore Gift Card!

My birthday is coming up next month. I'm going to be.......*gasp* 45 years old! A friend (?) just described me as "old as dirt" but I'm alive and kicking so to celebrate I'm having a contest and the winner will get a $45 gift card to their choice of either B&N, Borders, or Amazon.com!

I have 15 followers of my blog as of today (3/11/2010) I would like to reach 45 by my birthday - April 18th! So to enter this contest you will get +1 entry for being a follower and +1 additional entry for everyone you recommend that becomes a follower.

So here's how to enter!
  • My 15 original followers get 2 entries right from the start!
  • You will get +1 entry for becoming a new follower ( Let me know you added my blog in the comment section)
  • Every time you refer someone and they become a new follower you will get an additional entry (PLEASE MENTION WHO REFERRED YOU IN THE COMMENT SECTION!!)
  • As soon as I get to 45 followers I'll do a drawing for the $45 gift card! If I don't make it to 45 by my birthday I'll award a gift card in the amount equal to the number of followers on that date.

So, please take pity on this old lady........sniff.....sniff. I would be really sad if I can't get 30 more followers by April. It would be pathetic really.............plus did I mention that you could get a $45 gift card!! So do it for me - or do it for the gift card - either way - just do it!

  1. oh yes, this person must have been a friend! *beam* *nods*

    that is much nicer than, say, indicating that a person is older than dirt and thus must be dust! ;)

    I must have lowered my standards for new friends....I wasn't going to degrade myself by repeating the *full* comment but I see you had no problems sharing LOL
