Shameless Self Promotion

Shameless Self Promotion

I am pretty good at missing blogging milestones.  To be fair, I’ve had a few things distracting me this year for sure.

It’s been a while since I’ve held a contest, so I kept thinking “I’ll hold one next time something significant happens at the blog.”  Lately, the only thing significant thing that happens around here is that something bad has happened to Simon.  I can’t afford to give out a prize every time that happens 😉

But at least he loves me?

So I missed my 500th post, and being a self-hosted wordpress blog it’s really hard to accurately figure out how many subscribers I have.  The only stats I pay attention to are daily visits and Facebook followers.

And I’m oh so close to 500 Facebook followers 😉

You can probably tell where this is going… but when I get to 500 Facebook followers I shall post a fantastic She Moved to Texas blog contest!  I’m not sure what the prize will be, but it will be as fantastic as my poor ass self can handle.  Fantastic I say!

So if you haven’t already, head on over to the She Moved to Texas facebook page and give us a “Like”.  I only need 13 more people to get to 500.  It’s so close I can taste it!

Blog prize... one gimpy nerd horse!  Just kidding ;)

In the meantime… prize ideas for the financial struggle bus?  I know the #1 thing I want to offer already, but am curious for additional suggestions 🙂

  1. I didn’t even realize you had a blog facebook page. See? Shameless self promotion works! Page liked!!

  2. I buy my url from Weebly so I don’t have many of the blogging features that you might get with Blogger etc., so I don’t know how many posts I’ve written, but I know it’s a lot. I basically blog 365 days a year. The only days I don’t blog are when we go out of town for the weekend or go on vacation. I’ve been blogging more than 3 ½ years which would be approximately 1,200 blog posts!

    I also don’t have a “following” widget which means I just check my “visits” to see what kind of traffic I’ve had. It would feel weird to do a contest for an approximated number of posts or followers.

    Your Facebook number seems like a good one to focus on. I am looking forward to what you come up with. :0)
