$25 Amazon GIVEAWAY!!

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.



~ This giveaway is now closed ~

When I started this blog a year and a half ago, who would have thought I'd have enough to publish 500 posts?

{Those of you snickering and thinking that I always have something to say can just be quiet now...and you know who you are...Christin}

But having reached a monumental blogging occasion, I'm thinking that this calls for a GIVEAWAY!! To celebrate, one of my lucky readers/commenters will win a $25 gift certificate to Amazon.

How's that sound to you all?

There are several different ways to enter this giveaway {and several ways to get some extra entries!}. You have the chance to enter up to five times!

Are you ready??

Here are the ways to enter:
  1. Leave a comment on this post ~ 1 entry.
  2. Subscribe to my blog using the lovely RSS feed on the side or become a follower. Once you become a follower or subscriber {or if you already are}, leave me another comment letting me know ~ 1 additional entry.
  3. Let me know a few of your favorite posts. If you are new to my blog, I'd recommend clicking on the label 'Zachary' on the sidebar. There's tons of material there. :) You can leave up to THREE additional comments on this giveaway post telling me the titles of your favorites. Leave one comment for each of your favorites ~ up to 3 entries.
As always, be sure to leave a way to contact you. If you don't have a blogger account, you can include your email address or blog site in your comment(s). This giveaway will run until next Tuesday, May 5th at 8pm EST. I will randomly draw a winner from the comments left on this post and announce the winner on Wednesday, May 6th.

Thanks so much for being a reader of my blog!!




p.s. Be sure to check out Heavenly Homemakers giveaway carnival this week!
