Yep – Today is my birthday! Most of my friends shy away from birthdays when you get to my age. But not me. Sure, I hate the idea of getting older as much as most people. But for me, 40 really is the new 30. In fact, 40 is SO MUCH better than 30. I love being in my 40s – I love the freedom and wisdom that comes with age.
So, in honor of this fantastic day (which, incidentally, we call the unofficial start to the entire holiday season in my house – since we have many holidays, including my anniversary, the birthday of this blog, and the national holidays coming up) I have decided to give YOU, my readers, something.
So leave a comment and I will enter you into a drawing for a fantastic gift bag full of books (YA of course), and other cool writerly things (pens, journals, reference books). If you subscribe to my blog in a reader, through email or through facebook – tell me and you get an extra entry. If you refer others to this blog, tell me and I will give you another entry as well.
And to support my new blog, Growing Up Gifted, I will enter you into this contest just for following that blog or referring others to it. Again, just leave me a comment and I will tally up your entries.
The Contest ends on my BFF’s birthday, October 10. I will announce the winner on Monday, 10/12. So – get those comments in and lets see how many entries we can generate.
Come celebrate my birthday and enter the contest. Thanks for stopping by!!!
