Take My Blog Changes Survey for the Chance to Win an Amazon Gift Card


Hello readers! It is still amazing to me that I can use the word readers plural and that more people than just my mom visit the blog. All I can say is thank you. Earlier this week through top ten tuesday I was asked to make 10 blogging confessions, it really got me started thinking about what’s working on the blog, what isn’t working, and what changes I might need to make once I go to New York. I love love love everything I do here, but realistically 5 posts a week takes up a lot of time and fitting that in with school/work/moving to a new city seems like I might be setting myself up to get burned out. I also know I’m doing certain things, like posting on Sundays, that aren’t working. Continue reading “Take My Blog Changes Survey for the Chance to Win an Amazon Gift Card”

One More Week to Enter My Giveaway

birthday12-hpHappy Friday! I’ve been 26 for eighteen days and so far so good. Even though I usually take birthdays hard (which I know is ridiculous) I’ve been pretty good at not freaking out when I tell people how old I am. Although my first reaction is still definitely to say 22, so maybe I need to work on that some more.

For my birthday I decided to host my first giveaway. I’m writing now to let you know that you still have a week to enter for the chance to win a $26 Amazon gift card. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on the blog between now and October 26th. It can be on this post or any post. The more you comment the more times I will write your name on a slip of paper and put it into the hat. That means if you’ve already entered, there are still plenty of chances to enter again.

For even more chances at winning, publicize the giveaway by tweeting about it, posting on Facebook, or linking to it on your blog. Just make  sure to let me know you’ve done this in the comments so I keep entering your name in. Thanks!

To keep things interesting, if you want to comment on this post (and you feel like it) why don’t you answer one of the following questions.

  • Who are your top three literary crushes?
  • If you could have dinner with an author living or dead who would it be?
  • What is a quote that you wish you’d written?


My 26th Birthday Giveaway


Hello Friends! It’s my 26th birthday. I know this is still young, but I am getting dangerously close to the end of emerging adulthood. I’m having a great day in Big Sur. Sometimes writing here can be a little lonely, but I’ve so appreciated all the cards and calls I’ve gotten today reminding me of all the lovely people in my life. Also, as you can see above, google had a special birthday doodle for me when I opened my browser this morning.

In honor of my birthday, I’m holding my first ever blog giveaway. I’ve never done one of these, so we’ll see how it goes.The prize is a $26 gift certificate on Amazon. Everyone who leaves a comment on the blog between today and October 26th (see the 26 theme?) will get their name entered into a hat. If you publicize the giveaway through Twitter or Facebook you will get your name entered into the hat twice (just give me a link to the post/tweet in the comments so I will know). If you link back to my blog on your blog you will get your name entered three times.

On the 26th I will pick a name out of the hat and announce the winner.
