Yesterday, I posted on Facebook, “I’m rich!” and left for work. I received the following comments-unedited thankyouverymuch:A friend’s hubs: “share?” Penny’s dad: “Lotto? Find a $20 in your winter coat pocket? Enquiring minds…” A friend: “I guess payday.” Mama Missy’s Mama: “I’m guessing it is not money!” Molly: “PAYDAY!!!!” My aunt: “Remember poor old Aunt Nanette and Uncle Gary…lol. Seriously, what’s up? A friend: “Yay!” A friend: “Say it like Chappelle!”
Obviously, the hype was because after 6 months of unemployment and 3 months of hourly wages, I finally received a nice chunk of change dumped into my bank account…you know, one that I don’t have to pay back to the Department of Education.
In honor of my very first pay day from my new job, I’ve decided to share the love/wealth and host my very first giveaway! (Don’t worry, Mom…I promise it’s not going to break the bank).
As a blogger who feels like she finally entered the blogosphere, I’ve gotten involved. I participated in my first “secret admirer” swap (and got a sweet scarf, to boot!), I’ve received and passed on sweet chain-like-but-wonderful-awards, and I’m even participating in a blogger reading event called Project Fairy Tale. Blogging seems to be a really great outlet for me to tell my story, and I’m having the time of my life doing it. I decided it’s time to play the giveaway game.
