My First Ever Review/Contest/Giveaway!!

In the almost 3 years that I have had this blog I have never ever hosted any kind of review or giveaway. I started this blog as a chance to write and vent, not to earn money or get lots of followers. However, the more I posted the more followers I got, and the more comments I got. I just have to say, I do love the attention! So a few weeks ago when I was approached by about doing a review or contest I was very intrigued. Not only did someone from the sight come across my blog and LIKE it, it was good enough for them to give me books to give away. So that's what I am doing. The author of What to Expect When You're Expecting, Heidi Murkoff, has also written 2 other books; What to Expect the First Year and What to Expect the Second Year.  I am going to run 3 separate contests to give away copies of each book.

Now, as a mom, I have definitely already read her 1st book because really, what new mom hasn't? So I am going to give away 2 copies of that book 1st. I'm going to read and review the other 2 before I start handing them out. So here is how it works: I will randomly choose 2 entrants to win copies of What to Expect When You're Expecting using one of those random winner generating tools that I've seen online before. Each person can earn 4 entries and here is how. 1st, follow my blog, 2nd like me on Facebook here, 3rd follow me on Twitter here, and 4 leave a comment on this post and tell me which ones you did, what your Twitter handle is and what your 1st name is so I can verify that you earned all of those entries. You don't have to do all 4 of those to enter, but you do have to leave a comment.

I will close the contest one week from today on Saturday, July 16, 2011. I am really freaking excited about this giveaway so please please please pass it along!
