I Must, I Must, I Must Increase My Luck

As a kid, I always filled out the Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes forms that came in the mail. All the little magazine stamps to lick and the promise of oodles of dollars--loved it! Strangely enough, we never won. You're shocked, I know.

Now I'm all grown up and not even on the Publisher's Clearing House mailing list (knock on wood). But I still get a little thrill out of entering contests. Which is why I geek out over the quarterly Bloggy Giveaways Carnival. Four times a year a zillion bloggers get together and give stuff to each other. Love it! But despite all my clicking and entering, I've never won.

In an attempt to increase my giveaway-winning karma, this time I'm offering up a prize myself. I am a fan of choice, so you can have your pick of a $15 gift card for Target, Starbucks or Amazon. Also known as three enormous corporations which get too much of my money.

Entering is as easy as leaving a comment on this post. You don't have to be a blogger to win, but you do need to leave me some way to contact you. One entry per person, please. Comments close October 31 at 10:00 p.m. The winner will be selected randomly and posted this weekend.

If you're a fellow fan of giveaways, we've got a bunch every week over at Northwest Mom Finds. And you're welcome to come visit here any time. Good luck!

Comments are now closed. Thank you to all who entered!

Yes, they are three big corps, but they have gotten that way by being very good at what they do and appealing to people. That is the American way. We should all learn from them and be good at what we do and do it with passion! ha
