Today’s extra post serves a dual purpose.
First, I was informed that the email subscription system wasn’t working properly, so those of you who have signed up to get emails when new posts went up weren’t being notified. Of course, I hope everyone checks my blog every day, but I know that’s not reality. So, after much time and hair-pulling, I THINK I might have the settings right. (Another grumble of mine—it was working before, but then they “fixed” it, so it stopped working.)
If you’re a newsletter subscriber and DID get a message about this post, I’d love a quick comment or “contact” note. If you’re NOT yet a subscriber, and you do sign up (please use the new form is at the TOP, in the nav bar), I’d love to know if it works.
Next, the NOOK Contest will end June 10th. After that date, no more entries will be accepted. I’ll pick a winner at random and announce it on my blog no later than Friday, June 15th, which gives me time to verify the winners.
Remember, to win, there are THREE requirements.
1. Be following my blog in some fashion: RSS feed, Networked Blogs, or email (hence my dismay that the system wasn’t working—but the list of subscribers does work on my end, so I will know that you signed up, whether or not you’re getting notifications.)
2. Sign up for my newsletter. (Form is in the nav bar) Remember, there’s a confirmation step, so watch your inbox.
3. Enter! Yes, you have to tell me you’re entering the contest. It’s not automatic. Use the Contact Form (in the nav bar). Put “NOOK Contest” in the header and then tell me how you’ve complied with Step 1.
Bonus entries are explained in the Rules post … click the link at the top of the blog’s home page, or the one in the sidebar. And for the questions, use one email per answer. If you lump them all into a single email, I’m afraid I might lose track of the extras. To date, there have been 7 questions. There will be 10 before the end of the contest.
Enjoy your weekend!
