100th post ... and a giveaway
Today marks my 100th post since I launched this blog on the last day of 2010. What a fun trip I've had, making great new friends in cyberspace. (And how amusing to read back and see that I had characterized my home office as chaos back then; clearly this is a recurring theme for me.)
Many folks in the beading blogosphere are spending this weekend blog-hopping in the first installment of Lori Anderson's three-stage Bead Soup Blog Party, and I encourage you to join in the fun. Hop on over to Lori's blog for links to the July 28 participants. I will be part of the third reveal, on Aug. 25.
Given the convergence of my 100th post with the Bead Soup buzzfest, I am celebrating my milestone by announcing a giveaway of an autographed copy of Lori's soon-to-be-published book.
I've just pre-ordered two copies (one for myself, of course!), and I'll arrange for Lori to ship the book directly to the winner. You'll get the free tutes too!
The rules of the contest:
1. You have until midnight EDT Friday, Aug. 10, to enter. I will draw the winner using a random number generator sometime on Saturday, Aug. 11.
2. Leaving a comment here gets you one vote.
3. Becoming a follower of my blog gets you two votes. (Current followers are of course included.)
4. Posting about this giveaway elsewhere (your blog, Facebook, etc.) also gets you a vote--but you must tell me what you've done so I can count you! You can leave this information in the comments or email me at: torquestory (at) gmail.com.
