For What It's Worth

Wednesday, July 7, 2010


We blog because we have a passion for books.

We blog to meet people.

We blog to get ideas for books to add to our already toppling TBR pile.

We blog for fun.

You dear blogger deserve a reward.

I bring you The Ultimate Reviewer’s Challenge!

An event running the entire month of August, brought to you by myself, Karen D from Karen's Addictions, Tiger from All Consuming Books and Lena from Addicted 2 Novels.

It's simple. Throughout the month of August, all you have to do is post reviews on your blog and send us the link. We'll each have a Mr. Linky on our blogs for you to use (just like in Blog Hop or IMM). You can link your review on each of our blogs, but not enter the same review twice on the same blog. (complete rules will be posted at time of contest) Each link to your review will be counted as an entry to win The Ultimate Prize Pack! The more reviews you post, the better chances you have to win. At the end of the month, we'll use randomizer and choose a winner from each blog. That means you have 4 chances to win!

We’re still putting together the prize packs – more about that further down but they will be awesome!

Because this is to celebrate all you do, we will also be interviewing and highlighting fellow bloggers and some of your favorite authors. And maybe hosting a mini-giveaway or 2...or 3 or 4!

More Details/Rules/Sign-Ups Soon!


The point of this whole event is to promote your reviews and reward the bloggers who write them. Because while blogging is a lot of fun, writing/posting reviews and maintaining blogs can be very time consuming.

Since we do want each prize pack to be epic and there's only so much the four of us can do, we're asking fellow bloggers and authors to help us by donating anything you can. Books, bookmarks, swag, half-eaten chocolate bars, whatever you're willing to part with.

For authors, this is a Reviewer's challenge. Bloggers are indispensible in getting the word out about books…sometimes word of mouth and good reviews elevate a brilliant book that otherwise would have slipped through the cracks. WoW picks can whip up the book reading community into a frenzy of “I must have it now!” If you have anything you can donate – books/swag….anything to show your love to bloggers…let me know.

For bloggers, you'll be contributing to a great, fun-filled event. If you have any books or having a signing event coming up and can donate something signed that would be great! We’ll be sure to give everyone who donates a shout out and link to your blog!. Also,  if you do donate you are still eligible to enter!

Other ideas…. Do you have book related jewelry or crafts etc. that you would like to donate? Again, we’ll be sure to spotlight you during the contest!

*I know there are a lot of requests and challenges going on out there so Lena, Tiger, Karen and I appreciate anything your able to do for this event! We want to make this fun and rewarding for you guys!

Most importantly, good juju and karma will be awarded to you! Who can't use more good juju and karma?!

If you're interested in helping us out or have something you'd like to donate, please email me at fwiw(dot)kea(at)gmail(dot)com or tweet me at @teamsheltie.

Thanks everyone and GET EXCITED! This is definitely something you don't want to miss!!
