Margaret's Exciting Blog Contest!

Smile 2Image via WikipediaWell, of course, I did hope that people would be enthusiastic about my exciting blog contest (see below). But I had no idea the response would be so overwhelming. Altadena Hiker said, "I never follow anyone, and I'm not about to start with you!" Desiree said, "Oh, you crass commercialist! First, you become a commercial shill and now this! I spit on you! !!"

Obviously, I'm besides myself with excitement. As they say, "It doesn't matter what people say about you, as long as they're saying something about you." Of course, since they're only saying this to me, I'm not really sure if it applies, but the point is: Join the fun!

The contest runs until Monday, May 23. There will be two winners: One faithful reader and one new follower. Faithful reader: post a comment telling me you want to be in the drawing. That's all you need to do. New Follower: push the follow button on the right. Post a comment telling me that you're a new follower and want to join the drawing. That's all you need to do.

Winners will receive all the things they need to make their own winsome goddess altar, including a certificate describing your personal goddess and a bunch of other stuff that will be cool and help you think about how this goddess can help you achieve your goals.

(P.S.: If you are reading this through Facebook or Networked Blogs, you'll need to leave that and go to http://margaretfinnegan.blogspot.com to post a comment.)

(P.S.S.: The real point of the contest is to GROW the blog in the hopes that it will increase my PLATFORM in the hopes that editors will want to buy the novel my agent is shopping around, so really it's for a good cause, aka: me).

I want in on this. I always try to take advantage of any opportunity to add excitement to my life.

Margaret said...

You are awesome.

Jess said...

I've been selfishly keeping you to myself, but I suppose I can share you with my facebook friends... ;)

Lo said...

Are you ready for this,, Margaret........? I do not want any goodies.....my life (and house) is already full. but I will gladly add a vote for getting your book published.

Love your blog.

Margaret said...

Jess: You're fabulous.

Lo: I hate to admit it, but I know just what you mean. Now I know why I'm not a target demographic. I just look at stuff and say, "But where will I put this?"

Joanne said...

I'm not too big on contests, but I very enthusiastically support you and your agent's efforts! That virtual presence seems to mean so much these days in the quest for publication. With eBooks and eReaders growing by leaps and bounds, I'm not too surprised actually.

Shell Sherree said...

I'm so faithful, I'm commenting here as well as over on the other post. I wonder if that makes me part puppy dog. My wv is hedging its bets: tabbyip

Rois said...

I know some of my followers link to your blog from mine,I'll will bug them to follow you on their own.

Vanda said...

I'm a faithful follower! Did you say cake?

Margaret said...

Ok, Vanda, you're raising the bar. If you are local, and if you prefer, and if you win, I will make you my famous chocolate cake.

Petrea Burchard said...

You ARE a good cause, Margaret.

My WV is "iters," which means I should probably have a Roman goddess, or two.

TheChieftess said...

Oh!!! Oh!!! I'm a follower!!! Can I throw my hat in???

... daisy... said...

I always sign and donate for good causes, so this one is a DUTY!
I am in!!!
Count me in! :-)
Have a splendid radiant day Margaret! :-)))
PS: did you somehow manage with my blog or have you still problems getting updates? :-S

... daisy... said...

Don't know why blogger changed my profile name though... :-S

Italo said...

I want every prize possible! SO....!

Word in the Hand said...

You mean there isn't a Goddess for this? m+x

Daisy said...

Just added this to my facebook page too! Gotta spread the word!

Desiree said...

Um, I'm grateful for this opportunity to report a libel?

I have never used the term crass commercialism as if it were a BAD thing!

Susan Campisi said...

I'm happy to support the cause.

Patrizzi Intergarlictica said...

I love a contest that requires of me nothing but to breathe and to press buttons.

... daisy... said...

... I can't see my comment anymore... but it was more or less this:
I am always supporting good causes so I will support you! ;-) Count me in!!! :-)

Daisy said...

I put this on FB twice now, so hope you get lots of response Margaret!
And I am just so anxious to get my Goddess kit - count me in!!

Margaret said...

Yeah, Italian Daisy, where did all the comments go? Weird. Must investigate. But don't worry, I know who is in the drawing. To everyone who has been spreading the word, thanks so much.

Bellis said...

I'm not sure whether I'm an old follower or a new follower so I'll try both. Anything to win - I'm very competitive, you know. In fact if I don't win, my Goddess will be having words with your Goddess.

Please send your new novel to my Kindle asap - I can't wait to read it. Publishers, you should be in a bidding war for it!

claire said...

You know, I'm still so thrilled by your goddess of gratitude that I continue basking in the joy of having found her thanks to you.
Have a great day!

... daisy... said...

:-) can't wait!!!

Ari said...

I am just happy that anybody has fun anymore! Thanks for the invitation- don't worry about all the grumps. They only want the same thing you are asking for, attention!

Faithful reader--that's me. And I really need a goddess right now.fenestst

Shanna said...

Because I am constantly talking to Jim about your blog, he has asked (book lover that he is)if you are going to publish a book.

Of course you are!
