100th Post Giveaway!

Believe it or not (I certainly can not), this is my 100th post!

So, in honor of this special occasion, I thought I should do a giveaway.  I have some fabulous items!  First, we have two pocket journals, suitable for notes of brilliance or grocery lists of the mundane.  Next, a metal bookmark with a Thoreau quote, "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!".  A hardcover copy of It's a Book by Lane Smith, which was one of my favorite books of the year (a fabulous picture book for grown ups more than for kids).  And finally, one gold-tone pin.  Gold-tone pin?  Yes.  I have recently been given about 5 gazillion gold colored pins by my grandmother.  I don't wear pins.  I don't wear yellow not-really-gold.  So, I'm giving one away.  In fact, I'll give a gold-tone pin to two runners up as well.  If I had endless money for postage, you'd all be getting a gold-tone pin!  Lapels of my readers, beware!

So, to enter, you just have to leave a comment here and be a follower.  If you aren't a follower yet, just click that little "Follow" button over on the right sidebar.  If you want to enter but can't be a follower or leave a comment for some reason, e-mail me and let me know (my e-mail address can be found by clicking the "contact me" button at the top of the page).

Contest ends in one week, at noon on the 19th.  All comments will be printed out, folded up, tossed on my floor and whichever one my cat steps on first...wins!  Same method as my last contest, but I'll be using my other cat (just to keep things fair to the cats).  : )


  1. Aww, Megan, that's so fun! Count me (us) in!

  2. Yay, yay, a giveaway! I do love how you utilize your cats to choose winners. :D

  3. me please! me ma would love the pin but I would love the book either ways I would love whatever I get

  4. Will you ship to Canada? If not, that's ok. But, if you will, then count me in! You have some great prizes to give away. I really enjoy 'talking' to you on Twitter. :)

  5. I love that you use your furry babies as judges...the fairest of all living creatures I think! Definitely count me in!

  6. Auntie - Yep, I'll ship to Canada or Australia or France or Germany I have readers in other countries? I think I covered them. : )

  7. Wow 100 posts! Congratulations - and all so brilliant! :) Would love the book and the pin sounds lovely too!! Thanks for a fun competition (can I send the choosing cat some treats...?!?!) :)

  8. Congrats on 100 posts. I've never counted mine! Lovely of you to have giveaways, and it is very generous of you to ship to Oz. Down Under are excluded from so many contests you wouldn't believe it, which is why I dig deep and post anywhere! I love the story of the gold pins.

    I especially came by to thank you for responding to my 'disaster' post. I appreciated your thoughts. I kept my head above water and am now watching the river go down. I am still isolated in the CBD as am surrounded by water and no businesses are operating.

    BTW I have a Publication Party started on my blog. I'd love it if you could come by and read what authors have to say about getting published. Perhaps you could leave a comment about your aspirations. There are prizes each week. Please come by. The champagne's free!

    Denise :)

  9. I forgot to mention England! Sorry, Grillyfish - I'll ship to you too, of course! : )

    Denise - I'm very happy to hear you are making it through all that terrible mess. I've been keeping all my Aussie friends in my prayers!

    Everybody join me over at Denise's blog for the party! : )

    I'm a very sporadic blog visitor because I wait for my "down" days, but I love all my bloggy friends and the amazing things they do on their blogs!

  10. ooh, oooh, I love your blog Megan! Congratulations on your 100th post! Very cool!

    (Here kitty, kitty! Doesn't this comment smell like sweet fish and milk? Psst, over here kitty! )
