The Book Pimp Mid-Season Celebration
Cel-e-brate good times...come on! (sing it Kool and the Gang)
My baby blog is 6 months old...my how time flies when you're having fun! In addition, I've been on my #Twitloss journey for almost 6 months now as I rededicated myself to losing weight and getting healthy.
This Blog started out as a place to post my book reviews. I was already doing it on Goodreads, Amazon and Chapters, but when one of my tweeps Jen @Twimom227 started her own blog (only hers is much bigger and better), it inspired me to start my own as well. It was really slow going at first, since I knew nothing about blogs or how to set one up. I visited a lot of blogs of people I follow on twitter (and thanks to all who helped and inspired @buckeyegirl31 , @bellie7 , @smexybooks , @Pearl_828 , @larissa_sarah , @parajunkee ) to see what they were doing and getting ideas for the things I liked and wanted to have on my own blog. I discovered it's A LOT of work.
I don't blog a lot frankly because I don't have that much time, I'm not that interesting and I can barely read more than 1 book a week and provide a review.
One of the weekly features I started in conjunction with my blog was my Workout Wednesday Challenge, which in conjunction with my #Twitloss journey seemed to be a perfect fit with my love of reading. My goal was to read a book a week at the gym and keep track of calories burned, distance ridden, pages read and time spend peddling.
In the upcoming 2 weeks, I will be posting my Top 5 reasons why I was re-energized for my #Twitloss journey as well as my 6 month weight loss results. Plus some amazing numbers for a mid-season tally of the Workout Wednesday results.
So in honour of my mini milestone, I'm having a G-I-V-E-A-W-A-Y and there will be 2 prizes and 2 lucky winners! Double the pleasure, double the fun!
Each prize will consist of a $10.00 maximum book purchase from The Book Depository. So as long as they ship to the country you live in - go ahead and enter.
The rules are simple. You don't have to follow this blog or follow me on twitter or even read this blog. All you have to do is post a comment below and leave a way for me to contact you if you're the lucky winner.
The contest is open until midnight Thursday Sept 16, 2010. The winners will be chosen at random (hello mom? can you pick 2 numbers for me between 1 and ????? - I know it's not very scientific, but it's easy and I'm lazy).
So you have lots of time to enter - go forth and post a comment.
