I love the non-lurkers, too. I love all of you who read here.
I’ve been blogging since 2005 and I enjoy it today just as much as I did in the beginning. So many of you that I never would have known existed I can now call a friend because of blogging. At one time, you were all lurkers to me, strangers, anonymous voices on the internet. Because of you guys I feel connected to a world outside of these four walls and for that I am so so grateful. For your time, your comments, your support, your honesty and the occasional kick in the ass… Thank you.
You guys give me so much, not the least of which is the motivation to keep doing what I love to do. So I’m going to copy an idea I read over at Conina’s place because it’s brilliant. I’m going to offer a return gift.
We can quibble on the definition of “gift” after you get it. Bwaha!
Each unique visitor who leaves a comment telling me a little bit about yourself and why you read here will be entered into a random drawing for a brand new, never been snapped, never caused me to yelp, pretty purple-handled MISERY STICK! Yay!
Now you might be thinking to yourself “Mhm. Check out this bitch trying to sneak the ouchie shit outta her house.” and you’d be right. BUT! ~flaps hands~ Details are unimportant. What is important is that YOU, my lovely lurking friend-to-be, becomes the rightful owner of this bee-yoo-tee-ful, tiny, innocent looking stick.
You might even be able to talk Master into making a recorded demo on how to use it for maximum ow potential. So you see? I’d get mine, too.
Now, if you are selected as the winner but you don’t want it, you already have one, or you aren’t comfortable giving me your shipping information, you can pass it on to another person of your choice who does want it or you can tell me to select a new winner. Or, if you want something else, we’ll talk. I have
lots of ouchie stuff I wouldn’t mind rehoming other things we can talk about. ~whistles at the ceiling~
Here’s how to participate:
Leave a comment, you can still be “anonymous”– just make up a name or letter combination to sign it with so I have something to identify you with.
I will leave this open through the weekend, say Sunday evening at 9pm central time and then I’ll try and figure out how to use a random number generator (if anyone knows how to do this, holla!) to select a winner. As Conina pointed out, with anonymous commenting, this will require some semblance of the honor system, but the prize is not so valuable as to generate waste comments over it. So behave yourselves.
Even if you have no interest in, nor use for a misery stick and want nothing to do with the giveaway, this is still just LOL Day and on LOL Day, we love you for lurking. You are fabulous.
(Thanks always to Bonnie for keeping up this fun day!)
