Today is my 800th post. Which is just astounding to me. I was trying to think of other things I've done 800 times. I think I've watched You've Got Mail 800 times. I've probably taken the metro 800 times in the last two years (twice a day, and then some). I've probably eaten 800 grilled cheese sandwiches in my life, especially since my diet senior year consisted entirely of grilled cheese and salad (trust me, it was the only thing palatable). But writing 800 individual pieces, some of them quite long and thoughtful (though many not), is quite remarkable, and I feel like celebrating.
So I am hosting my first give-away:
a jar of freshly made jam awesomeness.
The winner will get to choose the flavor: ginger peach, vanilla peach, or spicy peach.
The only thing you have to do is comment and tell me your favorite of my blog posts, or features, or random interests, or general thing about my blog that you enjoy. Then I'll use one of those random number generator thingamabobs to pick the winner. That way its fair. Or at least random. You must comment before 9 AM EST, Monday.
Personally, I am thrilled to hear what you have to say, because I have always tried to cultivate randomness and whimsy on this blog, and I really don't know what you, as readers, like to read about. So have at it. Tell all. I hope you win. (that's a silly thing to say...someone will win!)
UPDATE 1: I'd love to know if there is any feature you'd like me to expand or add!
UPDATE 2: comments on Facebook obviously don't count for the giveaway.
UPDATE 3: oh yeah...try not to post anonymously.
