The Double T-800 Followers Party!

First off, I want to thank all of you who follow this blog. I never would have imagined over 200 people would want to read anything I have to say. I’m so grateful for the friendships I have made on here. And speaking of friendships, one of my blogging friends, The Great SHARON K. MAYHEW (she of Random Thoughts fame), and I have to decided to join forces and have a double party.

We’re celebrating how close we are to 1,000 followers. (Less than 800 to go, baby!)

We’re celebrating how close we are to getting published. (Only x number of rejections to go!)


We’re celebrating as backwards and as off-the-wall “random” as we can.

First off, sign up to win the last prize in the form below. (The grand finale first. Yeah, I know. Just embrace the topsy-turvy.)

Then check both our blogs starting Wednesday where you’ll be able to win a prize each day or every other day the whole month of July.

All you have to do is a) be a follower of both our blogs and b) answer a simple question.

The Grand Finale prize (form below) will be for a group of gift cards and is open to international friends.

Have fun! Good luck! And again, thanks for being such wonderful friends.


  1. How creative! I'll be telling everyone I can to follow you and Sharon.

    By the way, the whole message on your questionaire is not visible. Just thought you might like to know.
