New Digs And A Giveaway!

Well, you might have noticed some changes around here.

For starters, I have a new URL.

Secondly, I have a new layout, which I've been told is easier on the eyes. Like your mom.

Thirdly, by just clicking on something I saw on the internet, I increased the size of my...blog roll.

These are just a few of the changes I've implemented and will continue to implement in the coming months. I'm going to direct this blog more in the direction of story telling, and less in the direction of "whatever comes off my fingertips without going through a filter in my brain." I'm going to see what I can do about illustrating those stories, but listen. I draw really bad.

But, as any story teller will tell you, a good story needs one main thing in order to matter. Listeners. Or in this case, readers. There are all kinds of ways to gain readers on a blog, including just having good content, but the one I've found that works the best is to buy them.

That's right, I'm going to do a giveaway.

$30 in iTunes gift cards, to be specific.


So here are the rules: 

If you are a follower or become a follower, you get one entry. 

If you comment on this post, you get one entry. 

If you "Like" my blog on Facebook, you get an entry.

If you follow me on Twitter, you get one entry. 

If you tweet about this post, you get 3 entries, just make sure you leave a comment with the link to the tweet. You can tweet about it once a day until Sunday, February 27th. 

If you blog about this giveaway, you'll get 5 entries. Again, leave a link in the comments. 

Then, next Monday the 28th, I will draw a winner and get those gift cards sent out. 

Also, if there is anything in particular that you would like to see on this blog, be it advertising, your blog on the blog roll, pictures, more posts, a certain kind of story, etc, then please feel free to let me know. You can click that email button up near the top of the blog, or you can leave me a comment, as that gets you an entry into the contest. After all, you are my audience, and I am here to entertain you. Thanks for the loyalty, and welcome newcomers!
