GIVEAWAY TIME!!!

I'm only 45 followers away from 400 followers! Woohoo! I can't believe it. *jaw agape in shock* This is more than I ever dreamed of achieving here in blogland. So, I've decided to do a giveaway to celebrate!


or not so little things ... because this is a big thing to me!

This is going to be easy-peasy. All you have to do to win, is be a follower. Deadline is end Thursday 2nd December. First Place ($40 Amazon card), Second Place ($20 Amazon card), or Third Place ($10 Amazon card), Runner-up (Surprise Prize - Something Greek!).
But there's a twist. If I reach 500 followers by the deadline. The prizes will double! Prizes will be: First Place ($80 Amazon card), Second Place ($40 Amazon card), or Third Place ($20 Amazon card), Runner-up (Surprise Prize - Something Greek!).
Just comment on this post and tell me how many points you have and include any relavant links.


Here's the entry system:
Already a follower = 2
New Follower = 1
Dedicate a whole blog post to plugging it = 6
Mention it in a blog post = 3
Put it in your side bar = 1
Facebook/Tweet = 2

Happy entering, folks!!! :o)

PS: If you win an Amazon gift card and would prefer 'a something Greek surprise ', it would be a pleasure to do so!

  2. Congrats to you! 400 followers is a heap of people on your list. Just thinking the other day how sad it is that we lose touch with each other, as I have with you. I come back occasionally to say hi.

    I've been a follower for ages - 2, I'll mention it in a post - 3, Put it in sidebar - 1, Tweet it - 2. Thanks for the opportunity to win, although I never win anything!!!!

    Total chances for moi - 8. Hope you get to 500! So exciting.

    Of course I'm a follower! Of course you'll find the perfect spot on my sidebar (I LOVE YOU AFTERALL!)

    Who doesn't love AWESOME giftcards! I could really use more books (okay so I couldn't use, but I WANT, which is pretty much the same thing!)

  6. Congrats on all the Fan-tabulous blog success! I'm happy to celebrate with you, because had it not been for your blog, I'd never have met you. And my life wouldn't be as rich and wonderful as it is today! *squeeze*

    I'm off to blog your contest, post to FB, link on my sidebar and tweet...giving me a total entry points of...hang on, launching the calculator function...haha, just kidding, I'm creative but I'm not a total math baboon...okay, maybe I am, but I have enough fingers...wait, no...almost enough. Okay, I think that's 11 points.

    11 points, please! Thanks!!!!

    ((hugs)) Nicole

  89. I remember going to a Greek restaurant in Detroit (big Greek area there) and they would bring a pan of flaming cheese to the table as an appetizer. We'd all yell, "Opah!" To this day, I still don't know what that means. But it sure was fun and brings back lots of great memories!

    ReplyDelete

  106. Already a follower (2) and you're sidebarred (1). I will mention it next week in my Tuesday Updates Blog Post so that you are OUT there! But I'm not giving myself points for that because NaNo sometimes sucks my brain and I might forget. So no points until I actually do it. Just put me down for the three at the moment!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Here we go. I'm a new follower (1), I have sidebarred you at http://demonesprit.wordpress.com (1) and posted a link to you as a Facebook status (2). I see you've achieved your quest for 400 and are on your way to 500. Bonne chance!

  123. Hey Jessica, congratulations on your amazing achievement! Nearly 400 followers? I only have 8 so far! You're incredible. Your giveaway is really generous-think of all the books someone could buy with a $40 amazon card!

    Anyway, I'm already a follower= 2
    I've dedicated a blog post=6
    I've put your button on my side bar=1
    And I am going to tweet about it=2

    So, according to my calculations I have 11 points. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I don't often win competitions but they're so fun to enter anyway.

    Oh, and here's my blog if you wanted to check out the post I made for you:http://myimpossibledreams.blogspot.com/

    Take care and congratulations!

“Allowing an unimportant mistake to pass without comment is a wonderful social grace” ~Judith S. Marin

“I don't ever try to make a serious social comment.” ~Paul McCartney

“I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.” ~Charlotte Bunch

“Probably what my comment meant was that I don't care about the circumstances if I can tell the truth.” ~Sally Kirkland

“We're not going to pay attention to the silliness and the petty comments. And quite frankly, women have joined me in this effort, and so it's not about appearances. It's about effectiveness.” ~Katherine Harris
