$50 Cash Card Giveaway

***Updated to announce that Lindsay K. (#17) is the lucky winner of the cash card!  Spend it wisely!***

Guess who has been named a finalist in the Mabel’s Labels BlogHer ’09 Contest?!  Yep, you guessed it: me!  And in an effort to get a few votes cast my way I thought I’d sponsor a little giveaway.  Or a big giveaway…

Everybody loves cash right?  Unfortunately sending cash through the mail can be a bit tricky.  Credit cards are the next best thing though, yes?  I hope you’ll agree because that’s what I’m giving away.  Fifty smackaroos.  FIFTY!  If you’re the lucky winner I will send a fifty dollar cash card, or a fifty dollar gift card to the retailer of your choice, (as long as I can purchase said gift card online) right to your door.

To enter:

1. Click HERE to vote for my essay. Simple as that.  Vote only one time and make sure that it’s for Darcie @ Such The Spot.

2.  Once you’ve voted for me come back here and let me know you did so by leaving me a comment.

3.  If you’d like to gain an extra entry, Twitter or post about this giveaway on your blog.  And then let me know in the comments that you did so.  You’ll get one extra entry for each method you use to spread the word.  Just leave another comment telling me you tweeted, or posted a shout out on your blog.

4.  I will randomly choose a winner on Tuesday, Feb. 24th.  You have until Friday, Feb. 20th at noon EST to vote/enter.

Good luck (to you and me!).

  1. I just read your article. I’ve got to quit reading blogs through my reader instead of visting them. I missing stuff…

    You are a great writer. My favorite line…”Because time after time, comment after comment, I find acceptance. I find understanding. I find friendship.”

    This is a generous giveaway and I would be happy to be included. I did go vote for you. Hope you win!

  2. I’ve been reading your blog for awhile, just not posting :) until NOW!

    I gladly voted for you! You are a great writer.

  3. I voted! And I read your entry. I loved your thoughts on blogging as a community, especially because some of the relationships have turned in to IRL friends…if only we didn’t live 2500 apart!

  4. I voted – you definitely have the best entry in the whole deal. I love the way you write!

  5. I voted for you Darcie – not because you told me to, not because you are Kelly’s friend, but because I thought your article was wonderful!! It made me laugh – and cry! I loved it!!.


  6. Just to be fair, I went and read everyone else’s entries for the contest. I can honestly say that yours is the best!!! So yes, I voted for you. Anyone who doesn’t must be crazy!

  7. Hi Darc,
    I voted for you and forwarded this to my email friends!
    Good luck.

  8. This was the best thing I did all day!

    I hope you win and if I win treat yourself to the well deserved pedicure!

    Love you!

  9. Of course I voted for you, and I will happily blog ad Twitter too. You totally deserve to win!!!

  10. I voted for your essay before I even read this! That should earn me bonus points, right? Or maybe I should get bonus points because I ALSO pose while making sexy faces at myself in the mirror? Okay, I’ll settle for just one entry, but I really do hope you win. Your essay was amazing.

  11. I just voted for you and couldn’t be happier to have found your blog. Just spent the last hour or so reading…You are my new Asia-lol! but in a non-porn-star way of course!

  12. Not sure if you’ll believe this or not, but someone twittered the contest link and asked us all to vote for one particular person. Well, I read that person’s entry and really liked it, but I have this thing about fairness…so I read everyones. Then I voted…for you! Then…I added your blog to my google reader…and…when I checked it I came to this post. LOL…so I just had to comment. So you didn’t even need to use cash to encourage me…but since you are offering, I’d love to be included in the drawing. I’m giving away something today too, but not $50. That’s quite generous.

  13. I voted and then came back for more and saw the giveaway. lol!! I don’t think you need to resort to gift-giving, you are SO the obvious winner. Loved your entry. Loved it.
