New Site & New Contest!

Big Ideas, Uncategorized

Thanks for jumping over to my new self-hosted site. Hot damn. It’s about time. I’ve been meaning to do this for like…a year or more. What can I say, I’m a redhead. I work at Auburn-Speed. That is, sometimes lightning fast and other times…well…not so much.

So this is the new joint. Still has lots of fixing & sprucing up to do. Jessie at Story Kraft Kreative is helping me get this place sorted out. If you notice any dead links or old posts without pics, etc. please let me know. Pretty please! Will be adding items to the ‘store’ in the next few days as well. So much to do! So much to do! So exciting! Carp. I think I just piddled.

As promised…my first contest/giveaway/thingamabob on this new self-hosted version…and it’s a biggee! Three sealed/new boxed sets of Beavis & Butt-head (Season 1, 2, and 3) as well as a brand new men’s Pulsar watch. Yep, that watch alone was $135. Tell me this wouldn’t make an awesome gift for that man in your life. You know, that one you nag to help you with dishes n stuff. Him. Or maybe it’s for you. Hell, I love me some Beavis & Butt-head.

So how do you enter? Subscribe to the blog (and it wouldn’t hurt to also drop a comment below and say “hi!”). Simple as that. Subscribe via EMAIL and you’re entered into the contest. A random subscriber will be picked on April 2nd and that person will win the boxed sets AND the watch. The winner is picked from the “Subscriber” list, just to clarify.

US residents only for the contest please. Shipping overseas is a nightmare of epic proportions.

I tested all the Feedburner links and they are working for me on Firefox. Hmm. If you do have a problem, just post a comment below and I’ll put it in manually – you’ll have to approve it once you get the email from Feedburner.

I have a TON of contest/giveaways coming up over the next several weeks for Subscribers so please stick around.

xoxo,
Jean

    Looks good! The creamy tan is perfect and looks good on my PC and my Mac. (Yes, I checked it on both.) I like the scalloped frame on your header too. Congratulations.

    Yeah…turns out that having a typo in the url for your Feedburner account phks up the fun. Sigh. I hate being so tech-illiterate. Use this link:

    I also put the link in the body of the post.

    Your link didn’t work for me. Maybe I should have refreshed the page. Then I left out blog in the address – finally found my way here. Looks good!

    Ooh, I like! I’ve updated your link on my blogroll…is that the same as subscribing?

    Jessie’s working on fixing the Feedburner/RSS stuff. Should be back up shortly. I’ll make sure to subscribe you. Feedburner will then send you an email w/ a link to click & confirm.

    Another loser question, I use netvibes, so I’m trying to subscribe to Feedburner…So far not working. Besides my eyesight, is there something I’m missing?
