Let's do this puppy

This is the commencement-of-lovefest post! I.e. here is what you need to know about Ye Giveaway!

- Starting now, every post will include something for you to do to earn an entry: a question to answer, a small internetsy task, things like that. You get one entry for each time you do what I tell you to do. (Cue dictatorial cackle.)

- Partway through the giveaway, you will also have the opportunity to earn extra entries by spreading the word about the contest on your blog or other social media site. You will only earn extra entries if you do that after I give you the thumbs up, though.

Why partway through the contest? Because while I don't want to pass up the advertising opportunity, it kind of defeats the purpose of this shebang (namely, reader appreciation) to give new randoms who may or may not stick around as good a chance of winning the prizes as you cool people who are already among the readership. So for the first part of the contest, only you guys will be earning entries. After that, newbies won't be able to earn entries from the earlier posts.

Yes, I like you best. Keep it on the down-low.

- All the entries will be pooled on November 1st, and the freshman across the hall will randomly select the winners. I don't know yet how many prizes I will have, but there will be defo be multiples.

- You can (and should!) enter even if:
* you live outside of the U.S. or Canada
* you don't want to give out your street address (see here)
* you are a new reader
* you don't ordinarily comment

Did I miss anything? Any questions?

To earn an entry on this post, all you have to do is comment!

Entry?

I think you're awesome. And tell that freshman across the hall that s/he's awesome, too.

Yay!! Giveaways rock...and I'd say 'so do you', but that sounds like flattery. But you do :p

Liviania 10/22/2008 8:28 PM  

Cool giveaway!

BTW, what manga did you try?

Erin 10/22/2008 8:30 PM  

Well everyone else has already said such nice things about you, that I will merely say "seconded to all of the above."

MismatchedSockGirl 10/22/2008 8:46 PM  

*ditto the entry, double the flattery*

:-D

I have read most of Boys Over Flowers/Hana Yori Dango. It was written in the 90s, but the clothes are so 80s, no? I find it funny, but got tired of the central relationship (which isn't what you'd think from the first several volumes). I don't remember enough of the beginning to say whether it started slow or not. However, I know many people who didn't enjoy it, so it probably wasn't to your taste.

Hehe....love the idea, Cuil. Wow, you've been blogging for five years now?! Holy cow!

*joins chatter about how great Cuil is, b/c it honestly is true. Really, and honestly, cross my heart. :)*

Cheeky bloggers, you.

Danielle and Cassandra, I shall pass on your benevolence.

BB, only about a year and a half total really, though this blog was born five years ago.

Anilee - then that itself is enough. :)

Abbie! Hurrah! I'm so happy to meet you!
