It's a great way to share recipes, knowledge, and memories. It's also a great place for contests.
Everywhere I turn these days (maybe I should use the word "click"), there is a great contest. The ones I usually enter involve reading/writing and free books. I've been incredibly lucky over the past couple of months, as I've won several blog contests. I want to express my gratitude to all the bloggers out there, who offer such wonderful prizes.
In the last two months, I've won the following items:
- Book - Altered State, by Gregg Luke (Cami Checkett's blog)
- Book - Missing, by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen (Marilyn Bunderson's blog )
- Book - Love Your Body, by Brooke Parker R.D. (Walnut Springs Press)
- Book - Abinadi, by H.B. Moore (Heather Moore's blog)
- Pair of Pajamas (Kimberly Job's Blog)
I've also agreed to do book reviews for three authors, and will be getting copies of their books as well. I will blog about them in the coming weeks.
All of these great things would not be possible without Blog-Land.
And speaking of meeting people through Blog-land, I had a great opportunity last night. I went to Valor Publishing's 5-author book launch, and it was great. I got the chance to meet SO MANY people I've been acquainted with through blogs, but never met in person. I also got to meet the authors, which is always fun.
It was so great to be able to look around a room full of people, and recognize so many faces. Some people even recognized me too, and that was doubly cool.
To all of you who I finally "met" in real life last night, thanks for making my evening great. I look forward to getting to know you all even better in the future, and seeing more of you as we journey down this writing path together.
