Announcing prize giveaway for subscribing and posting!

Okay, I've started a blog. Now (scary as this sounds) I need people to read it!

Obviously I need to provide some incentive. So here goes.

All you folks who subscribe to this blog by April 30 will be entered into a drawing for a $50.00 gift certificate for amazon.com. Just go to the FeedBlitz link on the right hand side and enter your email address in the box. (Click the box under it to submit.) If you subscribed before I made this announcement (all three of you! ha!), don't worry. You will be included.

Second, I don't want this blog to be all about me. I want it to celebrate all of us who write, who follow a dream, who persevere. I want you to tell your stories and your thoughts here, too.

So here's the second contest. Everyone who posts a comment on the blog by April 30 will be entered for a second drawing for a $50.00 amazon.com gift certificate. Alternately, if you'd just like to send me your story of a time you had to persevere, I will consider posting it as a guest blog. And you'll certainly get entered into the drawing for all that effort!

Okay, so there's two drawings--one for subscribers, one for posters. You can be entered into both. However, if you win the first one, you won't be eligible to win the second one. Does that make sense?

(If not, you could post here that you're totally confused--and get yourself entered in the contest!) :)

If you want to contact me privately about any of this, my email link is over on the right-hand side, too.

Thanks for your help! I'm looking forward to getting to know more of my fellow monarchs.
