$20 Amazon.com Gift Certificate Giveaway!

That's right, time for my first giveaway. Here's how it's going to work. You earn an entry for the following:
1. Follow this blog
2. Post about this blog (leave the link in your comment)
3. Post one of the buttons on your sidebar (leave the link in your comment)
4. Tweet to win (you can use this handy link if you like)
Leave one comment for each of the activities above for up to 4 total entries. You will receive an additional entry for anyone who comments on this post and says that you sent them.

The Prize: I'll email you a $20 Amazon.com Gift Certificate. Or, if you're in Canada/UK/etc, a US $20 equivalent to their Amazon site.

Deadline: The winner will be named next Monday, February 1st, using random.org. If the winner does not claim the prize by Wednesday, February 3rd, I'll draw a new winner.

Fine print: There isn't really any fine print. If random.org chooses an entry I can't verify, I'll draw another winner. Nobody is sponsoring this, unless you count my husband but you can't really count him because he doesn't know. I'm not being compensated in any way. I cannot be bribed with chocolate (in this particular situation).

(I also posted a status update on FB with the information on the giveaway!) Have a great day!

P.S. Could you be bribed with pics of Simon? Or pics of Mark Valley? Or BOTH!?) ;)

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

You know I can't resist a giveaway (especially a secret husband-sponsored job). I follow.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Since you can't be bribed with chocolate, please send any attempts my way.

I blogged about it: http://ryanashleyscott.blogspot.com/2010/01/seven-days-seven-answers.html

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Let's pretend everyone who comments after me says my name for an extra entry. You know they're just too lazy to type it all out.

I have buttons here: http://ryanashleyscott.blogspot.com/

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

In complete seriousness, I don't care if I win (okay, that was not completely serious), but I do hope word spreads about your site. Creative prompts: they're easier than thinking for myself.

I tweeted it (and thanks for the link - saved me a minute, which I will now waste digging cookie dough out of the package with my bare hands).

Did I copy that "it beats eating paste" button from here? I believe so! Here's the link to prove it: http://marriedintoarmy.blogspot.com/ (third item on the right side)

silver star said...

Before I had a chance to check out my blogger dashboard, someone by the name of Ryan Ashley Scott tweeted about this wonderful contest. Please pass along another entry to one of my newest twitter (stalkers) followers. If you won't accept chocolates, then I'll send them to her. =)
