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!

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 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! ;)


  2. hee-hee :-) I was wondering if you would catch this post!
    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


  3. you are not old... lol
    if fact we will be the same age for exactly one month to the day.
    Like fine wine & bourbon.. we improve with age..
    thanks for including everyone in your bday celebration..

  4. Woot. Glad I am already a follower.

    Off to spread the word

  5. hope you reach 45 followers! I'm a new follower =)
