Giving And Getting Whoot Whoot!!


If you want to get in on a very cool giveaway, check out Joanna's blog at The Fifty Factor.

From the first time I stumbled upon this blog, I have not missed a post. Joanna can write!! I mean, she can hold interest, she has great pictures and graphics, she even gives blogging suggestions and answers questions. She connects with people. Being a regular reader of her blog means there is truly a blogger relationship because it is not one sided.

You want to hear about Joanna's GIVEAWAY??? Well here it is....

"Thanks to the nice folks at CSN Stores, I'm giving away a $60 gift certificate good at any of their more than 200+ online stores. They have over 1 million products like shoes, furniture, baby and kid stuff, cookware, sporting goods, outdoor decor and did I mention shoes!!! So I'm sure you'll find something you can't live without!

I'm throwing in an additional $25 Amazon.com Gift Card because I love you all so much! (One drawing-- winner takes all!)"


You heard it, right from Joanna's own words on her blog!

A few months ago I was the lucky winner of a random drawing on Joanna's blog and was sent a $25 Amazon.com Gift Card and promptly used the card to buy some books. (My favorite thing!!) When Joanna says you won something, you get it right away. We all like feeling like a winner, and Joanna's current giveaway is a great one.

One of the things I like about this giveaway is you don't have to read all the rules because there aren't any. And then you don't have to tweet this and facebook that and all the other zillion things to even get into most of the other giveaways. I guess I say that with a sourpuss look because I don't tweet and do not have facebook so I am automatically not in the running for most of the giveaways that I run across.

While you are over at The Fifty Factor so you can get in on the awesome giveaway, check out the guy at the top right of that blog. After you leave your comment on Joanna's blog, click on the link to listen to my hubby's music. Maybe you would want to buy a CD like Joanna did and find out how much you like the instrumental jazzy/bluesy listening music on my sweet hubby's CD.

Okay, I'll head over there, since she seems to be a real treasure, according to you and the previous comments. I'm always up for reading more great blogs (like yours).

I completely agree with you. Joanna is also one of my favorites, she always has an interesting subject and she DOES connect with her readers. I don't know how she does it! xoxo

JJ is great and now that her pool is stable who knows what we will learn.
She knows how to write a great story.
So is there any chance you might do a CD giveaway of your home talent?

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

OK, does Hubby want to promote his music even more and appear on MUSIC ON THE COUCH? One Monday in July?

Shoot me an email and let me know...i do like what he is doing with the guitar.

Ronda Laveen said...

Good for you for giving JJ a shout out. I saw this on her last post. It is really an awesome give away.

I noticed that she put up your hubby's link/photo and read the post she wrote about receiving his CD. I listened to his tracks and he is SPECTACULAR. As soon as I can wrangle a few extra minutes, I'll be ordering Bipolar Shaman too. He rocks...literally!

steveroni said...

Do not know JJ, but am going there now, of course! And I shall click on the guy in the upper RH corner.

You are doing the "public Services" Dept., today!

This is awesome, Technobabe. Thanks so much for the link. I just took a peek, and it looks like an excellent site. I will definitely check it out further. If you recommend someone, I always take it to heart, because I know it will be a great read.

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Hi Technobabe! I just wanted to answer your question. I couldn't find an email address for you so I'll try to answer you here.
When I show up to work, my female boss won't even look at me or anything. She won't say anything to me but she talks to everyone else.
She gives me the silent treatment and it reminds me of the emotional abuse I endured as a kid from my mom. She does this to everyone at one time or another. I guess it's just my turn. Everyone else is very nice to me.

Hugs and love,
T
