Happy Birthday to Me! OK, it's not really my birthday. My real birthday is on November 2nd, which is next Sunday. I love birthday celebrations though. I really, really, love celebrating my 24th birthday which is why I celebrate it every year.
I've been thinking long and hard about how to best throw myself an Internet 24th birthday party. Let's be honest, once you turn 21 there is no real advantage to getting older. No, the best part of a birthday is getting gifts! Come on, admit it … you love getting gifts too, don't you? Of course you do!
You know what makes me happy? Making other people happy. Especially people who bring me a lot of joy. You, readers, bring me a lot of joy. I'm new to this blogging world and you have opened your hearts and laps laptops to me. You've given me a warm welcome and I want to use my birthday as an opportunity to show you my gratitude.
I will be giving out TWO prizes each day through Friday (Halloween!) of this week. You may enter every day. You may enter as many times as you'd like to. Each comment equals one entry. Friday, Halloween, will be the last day of contests so I'll make sure it's an exciting one! Make sure you visit every day all week.
Can you win if you've previously won a prize from me? Yes! Absolutely! Is it possible to win more than one prize this week? Yes! Prizes will be determined by random drawings. The more times you enter, the higher your chances of winning and/or winning multiple times. I will be using the Random Integer Generator to pick all winners.
I repeat: You increase your odds of winning by entering multiple times each day.
All you lurkers out there? You know, the shy ones who like to hang out but don't ever leave comments? This is your chance to de-lurk! Your email address will never be made available to anyone but me. You may even enter using a fake name if you're shy.
All contests will be closed at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on my actual birthday, Sunday, November 2nd. I will announce all the winners on Monday, November 3rd.
Remember, the holidays are coming soon. If you win a prize, you can always "re-gift" it if you want to.
What's a birthday, without music?
I need some ideas for new tunes on my iPod. Leave me a comment with the name of a fun, happy, song you think I'd enjoy listening to on my birthday. One entry per comment! Enter as many times as you'd like!
I will be giving out TWO iTunes Gift Cards valued at $25 each.
This contest is open until 5 p.m. Sunday, November 2nd.
Happy 24th Birthday to me!
