My FIRST EVER Blogfest!!!!!

Oh I am so excited for this!!! Lots of fun things to come in 2011 and we'll start off with my first ever blogfest!!

I've participated in them before and have always enjoyed them! It's a great way to meet new people and share something too!

I'm calling it Show Me the Love Blogfest!

There's only a few rules. First of all, answer these questions:

1- What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?

2- What is your favorite love song?

3- Do you have a favorite romantic movie or book?

4- Do you have any romantic plans for Valentine's Day this year?

5- What's your favorite romantic treat? (candy, chocolate, edible body paint, etc...)

Then, on February 14th, post your answers and/or pictures to the questions above by 10:00 AM EST. And make sure you visit the other participant's blogs that day to see what they said!! Let's have fun with this!!!

All participants will be entered into a drawing to win a signed copy of A Bitch Named Karma. (But just signing up does not mean you are a participant. You need to actually post for the Blogfest that day!) If my participant list reaches 100, I'll give away an extra digital copy. If we reach 150 participants, I'll give away another digital copy!!!!! Plus I have some copies of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books I am featured in, and all winners will receive one of those too!!! I'm hoping to draw in some new followers!! So if my follower list reaches 250, I'll give away a fun candy-filled prize featuring all my favorites!! (Yeah...you don't want to miss that....Reese Cups, Snickers, Swedish Fish, Butterfingers....)

Note: I will only ship to the US. I'm sorry :( I've had trouble in the past shipping internationally. If you win, I can most definitely email you a digital copy of A Bitch Named Karma!

So please share this with everyone you know...the more participants, the more prizes I give away!!

****EDITED TO ADD*****

Okay, apparently the "free" Linky tool I chose now charges a fee to use, so I can no longer use the one I had. (The site swears it sent notices to members...I do not recall getting it.) This completely sucks. My participant list is gone. New participants will be able to sign up with a new linky thing, but the participants already signed up will just have to be like this. (Click the titles for a direct link)

And my apologies...for some reason, some of the links did not work. But they should all be fixed now!!
