New Monthly Contest – Pay It Forward!

Posted by shelburns on 2nd January 2009

I have spent some time reflecting on this blog, how it started, what it was, what it has become, and were I want to go with it.  LOL!  I have a few “must do’s” on this blog, that I enjoy with the blogging community, like Teaser Tuesdays at Should Be Reading, Booking Through Thursday, and Poetry Friday, hosted by a different blog each week.   Well, I want to put my stamp on this blog in more ways than my book reviews.  Yes, this is a book blog, but I enjoy other things besides books…hard to believe, I know.   I have met many wonderful people through this blog in the short time that I have been blogging, and I want to repay not only them, but anyone who reads this blog.  What better way to do that, than with a contest?  This is not my idea, but one that I am going to run with.  One of the things I enjoy, besides reading, is making things for other people.   Hence, the Pay It Forward! contest.   This will be a monthly contest at Write for A Reader.

I am a fan of the 160 Acre Woods, and when I read her blog this morning, I found this contest.  It sounded like so much fun, but I was sure I was too late…nope; I was one of the first 3 to respond.  Respond to what, you ask?  Well, I’ll tell you. 

here’s how you play.

  • be the first 3 bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me!!!
  • Promise to post this challenge on your blog, (meaning, that you will then ‘pay-it-forward’, creating a handmade gift for the first 3 bloggers that leave a comment on YOUR blog!!)
  • the gift can be any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item.

I am more than willing to do international! So let the games begin!

I know that many of my book blogging friends and readers are crafty; is it you???
