Leading up to Thanksgiving, each day I will blog about what I’m doing to be more grateful. I invite you to join me, and to share your thoughts, observations, suggestions and ideas.
Day 23: Join me in the Month of Thanksgiving and you have three chances to win prizes
With just a little more than a week between now and Thanksgiving, I hope you’re getting in a thankful state of mind.
To help inspire you a little more, I’m offering prizes. Who doesn’t love presents?
I am giving away a whole cornucopia of Thanksgiving goodies: a gratitude journal plus tasty treats from some of my favorite Brooklyn shopping destinations, including coffee from Two for the Pot, sweets from Sahadi’s and New York apples from Fishkill Farms.
Why these particular goodies? Because they’re all things I’m grateful for so giving them to you helps remind me of my own gratitude. (It’s paying it forward, gratitudewise, like I wrote about last week.) So we all win!
All you have to do to win is share the reasons you’re grateful with the world. It can be anything from the big, significant life themes like health and family or one of life’s simple pleasures: sleeping in on Saturday, enjoying a good meal, getting a great parking spot, whatever makes you happy.
You have THREE ways to win:
1. Post something you’re grateful for as your Facebook status.
To make sure I see it, so you can be entered in the judging, either include “@Colleen Newvine” in your status, or if we aren’t Facebook friends, copy and paste your status into the comments of this blog post.
(If you haven’t used the @ designation on Facebook, here’s an article about that.)
Of course I’d love it if you linked back to this blog post so your friends know why you’re sharing your gratitude, but that’s optional.
2. Tweet something you’re grateful for on Twitter
To make sure I see it, so you can be entered in the judging, please use the hashtag #monthofthanksgiving.
You are also welcome to copy and paste your tweet into the comments of this blog post but only those using the #monthofthanksgiving hashtag will be eligible.
3. Write about something you’re grateful for on your blog.
To make sure I see it, so you can be entered in the judging, please link back to this blog post.
WordPress should automatically notify me, but if you want to make sure, you can also mention your blog in the comments of this post.
I will choose my favorites based on originality, style, emotion and anything else that catches my eye. Winners will be announced after Thanksgiving, so you’ve got plenty of time to post something good. Multiple entries are not only allowed but encouraged.
I look forward to your entries!
