X Marks the Spot!

It's a treasure hunt!

My blog isn't a year old yet and I already have FAR more followers than I ever thought would be interested in reading what I have to say here ;-) I have learned so much from "meeting" all of you, and though blogging is a super time-suck I enjoy every minute of it! And I hit a nice number today - 333 (thanks, Manzanita!).

To say THANK YOU to all my followers I'm giving away a $10 Amazon gift card!



Just think of all the $0.99 e-books you could buy with that! (For those of you who don't do math, it's TEN plus a bit of change...;-)). To make it fun I decided to have a little treasure hunt, and since we just had Easter, it's golden Easter eggs you'll be hunting for. Here's what you gotta do:

  • Be a follower of this blog (duh, this whole thing is to say thanks to FOLLOWERS!)
  • Visit the other pages on this blog (About Me, Book Reviews etc) as well as the sidebar and count all the golden Easter eggs you see.
  • For an additional entry tell me where you found the X-marked Easter egg.
  • You don't have to tweet or facebook this if you don't feel like it, but if you do I'd greatly appreciate it :-) (I even wrote out this lovely 84 character message to make it easy for you to copy and paste ;) Count the Easter eggs and you could win a $10 Amazon gift card! http://bit.ly/kykxAV )
  • You have until the end of next Thursday, the 5th of May. I'll randomly draw a winner on Friday 6th May.

THIS TREASURE HUNT IS NOW OVER.

Congrats on all the followers. Well-deserved!

Super idea to celebrate, Rachel! Once April is over...I'm swamped now.

Did you see the shout-out I gave you?

Congrats on the followers - 333 is a pretty cool number (incidentally, if you follow numerology at all, 3 is actually the number of creativity! How cool is that?)

I hereby give you permission to continue posting randomness! Lol...

Count me in - I am off to count eggs! :-)

What a fantastic idea.

I will do this as soon as I get back home to a proper computer.

If I post this message I will get all the other message replies to remind me about this contest. Lol

Love the blog by the way, looking really good.

Hope i was in time :-)

just got home and counted the golden eggs. My eyes still have not quite adjusted to all the gold...lol

I have been staring at the relative merits of 'white' today as i hunted for a shirt for the boys to wear to the wedding. lazy sods made me get them.

anyway,
Great and novel competition.

Have a great evening,

Sarah
