Blogging about blogging. (And a giveaway!)

This blog began on March 9, 2005 with a handful of posts about adopting a puppy and a lot of complaining about being a college student. For all you mathematicians out there, that's six big ones. This week is my blogiversary.

I sometimes consider going back through my Archives and taking down some of the immature, insensitive ramblings that live there. Before anyone really read or followed this blog, I was less careful and much less respectful about what I posted here. And once in a while one of those old posts will pop up and I read it, cringing, but all the while thankful for all the growing up I've done — some of it via those very posts. And I leave them there. Maybe when I run for President someday I'll have an advisor tell me to take it all down — but until then, I plan to keep this little time capsule intact.

So! Blogiversary! Last year, I celebrated by giving the blog a makeover. This year, I've decided to host my first ever giveaway.

Short of buying each of you a Sonic Diet Coke so we might properly toast this occasion, I struggled to find something appropriate – but I wanted to do something universally fun. So I will be giving away $25 in Fandango Bucks to one lucky reader. $25 good for any movie, any time, at any Fandango partner theater (check the website – there are a BUNCH).


So – to enter:

  • 1 entry for each comment left on any Musings of Mother Hood post.
  • 1 entry for each Twitter-share tagged with #sarahmcow ? limited to 3 tweets per day. (Click the "Tweet this!" button directly below this post.)
  • 2 entries for subscribing to Musings of Mother Hood by email. (Click the word "Subscribe" in the menu at the top of this page.)
  • 2 entries for becoming a Facebook fan. (Icon in the top right hand corner. You know what to do. :)

Contest will run from Monday, March 7, 2011 through Thursday, March 10, 2011 10pm CST. The winner will be selected at random and announced on Friday, March 11.

Good luck! This giveaway is truly to celebrate YOU. All of you. I appreciate every minute you've ever spent reading my ramblings. It means the world to me.


Note: This giveaway is neither sponsored nor endorsed by Fandango. It is being sponsored by Musings of Mother Hood. Please contact me with questions.
