Completely gratuitous giveaway!

Posted on | May 30, 2010 | 64 Comments

This morning I took a good look at my blog and you know what I saw? 188 followers.

How did that even happen? I mean, really… I have nothing important to say, well, ever. And yet 188 folks took the time to follow me? Curious for sure.

I did a sort of “Thank you” for my facebook followers by way of a Starbucks gift card and I’d like to something for you guys, too. But it’s gonna be better than Starbucks….

Here’s the deal:

The husband of a girl I knew in high school has created this sweet site :the OTHER Penguin. What is the Other Penguin? Glad you asked. They are a company that makes these ridiculously cute “Thumb cards.” You know how in the 19th century, women had calling cards? Think of these as the modern version. They have your information on them but they’re tiny and personalized. So you can hand them to moms you meet in the park or moms at daycare. You can give them to PR people who want info on your blog. And in light of BlogHer and all the upcoming Bloggy Bootcamps plus just because I find them seriously adorable, I’m giving away a set.

Have you clicked the link and checked them out yet? Aren’t they great??? They’re tiny. They have your name, your blog, whatever info you want! And you can carry them in your pocket and hand them out to the folks you meet at all these lovely conferences you are going to (without me, mind you.) Don’t you want them? Me too.

(Sidenote: No one at the OTHER Penguin is even aware of this, so I’m getting nothing in return, swear.)

Here’s how you can enter:

1. Go to the Other Penguin website and post a comment telling me which design you are craving
2. Become a fan of the Other Penguin on facebook and leave a comment telling me you became a fan
3. Leave a comment on the Other Penguin’s facebook page telling them why you think they’re awesome and that I sent you… and comment here after doing that.
4. Tweet about the Other Penguin and this contest using my name and theirs. (and yeah, post a comment letting me know) You can use this one if you want:  Check out @otherpenguin and then enter to win their sweet “thumb cards” from @lawmomma77 here http://bit.ly/aleVrx

That’s it! Four entries total. I will leave this open for one week and next Sunday I’ll randomly select a winner and you can send me your info and I’ll spot you some sweet Thumb cards.

Seriously. These are to die for. And the carrying case? LOVE. You want them. You know you do. So enter, tell a friend, and start loving the Other Penguin!

    Yay 188 followers!

    I used to know every one of my followers and what number follower they were and now somehow…I generally couldn't tell you how many followers I have. It feels weird but liberating.
