It’s My Second Blogiversary Contest!

Things can get way too complicated when you have a thirteen month old. Things like getting up in the morning, going to the bathroom and thinking you can eat a hot meal become, as one of my brothers put it, ‘strangely exciting’.

In light of the fact that things are strangely exciting around Chez Fibreholic on a daily basis, I wanted to offer you a contest that is nice and easy for all of us. You need only do three things to enter this blogiversary contest (and one of those things will result in you getting a double (or more) entry in the draw basket):

  • First, send me a comment saying ‘hello’ (or an email in case you’re not interested in setting up on blogger to post a comment. See the right sidebar for my email address). This will earn you one entry;
  • Secondly, post about this contest on your blog (or tell your friends if you do not have your own blog) and encourage others to enter;
  • Finally, make sure people use your name/blog name when they drop me a note so that I can enter you again! For each mention, you win another entry.

The contest will run from today and right up until midnight on my blogiversary date (August 21, 2008). I/we will draw two names from the prize basket when we are up and at’em the next day (baring strangely exciting disasters, etc.).

There will be two prizes for this contest so Iain gets to make two draws. Yeah! Hints about the booty? Sock yarn and handmade in Nova Scotia mohair…how does that strike you? Naturally, if you win, you will need to share your name and snail mail address via email with me so that I can send you a prize.

Let the games begin…

Well heeeellllloooo.

I'm a sucker for a contest and have absolutely no resistance when yarn is involved. Count me in and I'll be onto step #2 as soon as things are less exciting here at my computer (i.e. 10-month older stops threatening to hit the pretty blue button and turn off my computer)

Count me in! The post will be up on my blog in 30 seconds flat! :)

Elaine said...

Happy blogiversary. I came across your blog and contest through googling so maybe Mr Google deserves an entry :-)

I will post a notice of the contest on my blog and encourage my few readers to come on over.

EJ said...

I love a contest! I heard about your contest from Elaine at elaine-knitting.

My excitement comes from the other end of the age spectrum - my mother who is over 90.

purple-power said...

I found out about your contest from EJ. So count me in and I will try to tell others about the contest.

My baby was Iain's age about a day ago and now she is in college! And frankly I miss the days when she loved pounding on my keyboard while I tried to work. We even got her her own keyboard which she could pound on while sitting in her baby seat but mine was always more attractive :-)

allergicmom said...

Hello to a fellow Canadian! Thanks for the fun contest. And yes, it does get easier as they get older. Ours are now 3 and 5, and can actually play together for at least 3 minutes before they start fighting.

Breien in Lansingerland said...

Congrats on your blog-anniversary. i can imagine you being busy with a 13 month old at home... my youngest is a little bit older (17 months today exactly), and with all the kids home here still, it is hard to find the time to blog more ;-0 Still I hope that this anniversary will be followed by many...in good health!

Kristen said...

Hello! I can't even imagine trying to raise a young one. I doubt I'd ever get any fiber arts done while trying to do that :-)

Happy (early) Blogiversary!

well, happy 2nd blogversary - snuck in just under the wire with my comment - though it's probably closer to midnight here than where you are! My own 2nd blogversary is the 26th, so be sure to stop by then and see what I'll be doing to celebrate... (saw about your contest on Cathy W's blog - Winter Wanderings).
