To celebrate, I have decided to make an attempt to bribe my blurkers out of anonymous hiding and offer a fun and fabulous prize giveaway to a couple of lucky commenters. Although I have not yet determined exactly what the prizes will be, here are a few ideas to lure you in.
GRAND PRIZE: The New York prize pack
I plan on collecting a few of my favorite things from around town when I'm out and about on Saturday, including (but not necessarily limited to) the following:
My latest candle obsession:
My latest chocolate obsession:
My favorite shopper bag:
If I have enough comments, meaning more than 10 (a lofty goal, I know), in addition to one lucky winner receiving the grand prize, I will also give away an assortment of other prizes which may include one of the above items or might just consist of one of the following:
*a specially crafted SPRING! cd mix
*and/or some other fun surprise I find during my Saturday wanderings, most likely something purchased from a street vendor
The rules are simple:
1) You can only comment once (restrain yourselves!)
2) You can't be anonymous to eligible - because then how would I know who won?
3) You don't have to be a blurker to play - all my regular (and irregular) readers/commenters are eligible
4) You must submit your comment by
I've seen these giveaways around the blogs before and I think they are fun. To select a winner(s if more than 10), I will put the commenters names in a hat and randomly pick out the winner(s). I know some people get all fancy with numbers and randomized selectors or something but I am just not that high-tech at the moment.
So come one, come all, join in my celebration and leave a comment. I know it is difficult to come out of the woodwork to make that first comment on a stranger's blog but this is your chance to tell me what is on your mind.
UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming number of comments (THANK YOU EVERYONE! I LOVE THEM!) and the fact that I will not have the prize packages put together until tomorrow evening, I am extending the deadline until Saturday, April 5th at 6 pm EST. Now, don't worry about this decreasing your odds at winning because I have decided to expand the number of winners . . . final number of prizes will be determined tomorrow when I have all the loot. I will post the exciting results tomorrow night with the next divorce segment (hopefully) not too far behind.
Have a great weekend all - now I need to concentrate on the Jazz game.
