And the winners are…quite fitting for this blog contest. They’re two people who only know me because they somehow found my blog online. Yay — let’s hear it for the Internet!
So now it’s time to introduce the recipients of our two $50 Visa gift cards. Everyone, say hello to Kristin B and Joel Friedlander. :)
Here’s what they each said they’d do with their winnings:
Kristin: “If I had an extra $50 right now, I’d buy something for my husband for our anniversary! We agreed not to do gifts, but I’d love to get him a little surprise.”
Joel: “Hmmm, $50? I would take my honey for lunch at Bouchon, for sure.”
Since this contest was a random drawing, whatever the contestants wrote about their spending fantasies was irrelevant. Still, the shared theme in their comments has me feeling like the universe is sending a message…
<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3 Love will keep us together! <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
To recap what happened during this contest: When I asked what you all might do with a $50 gift card, the answers fell into three categories…
Thank you all for humoring me through this little giveaway. Since I’m someone who has never won anything in my life, I enjoy the idea of running contests. This one gave me ideas for a few more. I hope you’ll stay close to see what I come up with next. They will never be about big money — because I don’t have it. But hopefully, they will create a few memorable moments. xo
P.S. — I don’t know anything about Kristin B but I would like to mention that Joel runs a terrific blog that you may want to follow. TheBookDesigner.com is all about the world of self-publishing. He is a firm believer that writers do NOT have to sit around waiting to be rejected by agents, editors and publishers. Do it yourself, baby — you might even make money on your book. He found me on Twitter and we have following each other ever since.
