I Want to Share the Love

So I’m getting ready to make my first $25 from the ads on the left side of the page there and, in the spirit of one of my blog mentors (she doesn’t know me from mud) Pioneer Woman, I feel like I should give that back to the folks who made the $25 possible. You, the readers of this oh so humble blog. I’d like to hold a contest and am looking for suggestions since you all are the folks who would benefit from such a thing. How would you like your $25? In a gift card to your favorite store? What do you think would be fun to try and win it?

Please leave me some suggestions, friends! I have a couple of ideas myself but I thought I would ask you first.

Thanks for supporting this site!



  1. Ooh! How about to the first person who comments! LOL.

    Take your $25 and go get a pedicure, Evie. Have some you time!

  2. Jessica! How’s NaNoWriMo going? I wrote on November 1 and then never picked it up again. LOL I have issues.

    Thanks for your suggestion, though I think pedicurists in NC might hunt you down if I were to take you up on it. Your first suggestion was pretty good, too! 🙂

  3. I wrote about 8,000 words on my first project, got tired of it, and then wrote 6,000 on another one I am still working on. But I have been so busy I haven’t been able to write like I want to. Here’s to lazy winter weekends of writing!

  4. Reward yourself!

  5. I think since Pioneer Woman was mentioned, you should have a little name that photo type contest!
    I think a gift cert. would be a good idea, as well.
    I think it’s very endearing and says ALOT about you, that you want to give back to your readers.
    you sweetie, you!

  6. I like the ‘name this photo’ idea. You have many lovely pictures to choose from, I am sure.

    The gift certificate idea is good. Maybe for something like Amazon where people can get a variety of stuff.

    You are so generous to offer to give away your $25!

  7. I love contests! But I agree that you should treat yourself.


  8. I think you should treat yourself to something special that you wouldn’t ordinarily do for yourself….but if you insist on giving it away, a gift cert. is always good, and easy to mail. But I still think you should treat yourself!!!

  9. I don’t think I could possibly treat myself!

    I will do this…I will take a tally and by Friday will let the majority rule. How’s that sound?


  10. ooooh. shall I tilt the scales here, by saying I think you should treat yourself, instead?!?!?!?
    (tee, hee.)

  11. I love the new banner!

    As to the contest – I got nothin’.

  12. kalurah, I’m going to buck the rules I set up and give away the money anyway!


    THanks! It took FOREVER to get it right.

    Tune in tomorrow for the contest…

  13. Beautiful new heading banner. 🙂

    I don’t have any great ideas.

    The name that photo contest is cute. 🙂
