June $25 Gift Card Giveaway

Yes, time for another raffle! Why? Well, just because.

And, since I just love Discounted Gift Cards, those are my favorite items to raffle away. So, another $25 is coming your way!

So, without further is what you need to do!

  • Sign up to receive my daily email or sign up via an RSS Feed. Both can be found in the upper right hand corner of my blog.
  • Each week, I will have a new ( sometimes funny ) money quote that ONLY loyal readers will see when viewing in the RSS Feed or the the Email version, email me the quote.
  • I will enter you when I receive your email with the quote
  • You will receive an extra entry for each weeks quote. So, if you are already a loyal can potentially get 4 entries. If someone new finds my blog during the last week, they will get one entry for that week...get it? Got it? Good!

Want to receive extra entries? Tell your friends about my blog, and ask them to mention your name when they send their first email to me with the quote.

When the winner is announced, they can choose from the Gift Card list and pick their top 3 ( I can't guarantee all gift cards are always available ), so they can hopefully get a Gift Card they can use.

Good Luck to everyone!

I don't seem to be able to leave my email address. It says that something is not enabled?

I just fixed it...I think.

Can you try again and let me know if it works now?

It seemed to work, thanks! Love your blog!

Becky said...

Forgive my ignorance....What does it mean to sign up via a RSS Feed?? If we sign for for the daily email I assume that means that your new posts are emailed to me?

Carrie @ said...


No problem. And, not an ignorant question.

Last month, I didn't know what RSS Feed meant either and had to ask Jennifer over at iMommies.

But, since I have found out...I love it!

First, yes, if you signed up for emails, you will get an email automatically once a day with my posts. That way you an read them in your email, and you can click on them if you see something interesting and actually want to come to my blog.

An RSS Feed is similar, but it doesn't come to your email.

Do you see the little yellow star in the upper left had corner of your web page? Well, mine is in the left. It is your favorites. If you click on it, you should see a tab for favorites and a tab for feeds.

If you subscribe to someone's feeds, instead of having to personally go to each persons web each day to see if they updated or read, you can click on that star, go to feeds and all the web pages you subscribed to will be listed.

If that person posted something new since the last time you read it, it will be in bold. You can then click on it and it will take you to the feed ( which looks like the email version ). You can read through quickly, and if you actually want to go to the blog can click on the post you want to see.

It is MUCH faster then personally visiting everyone's blogs daily.

Hope that helps.

Hi Carrie,
I have another question. I subscribed to receive your emails yesterday. I was wondering how soon after you enter new posts will I get an email. I see you've entered new posts today (Monday) but I haven't received an email yet. Did I subscribe correctly??

Courtney said...

Hi! I subscribed via email. Thanks.
