Leave a comment for each entry! Like I say for every contest, I don’t have those STUPID word verification deals so comments take 10 seconds. That is a total of 4 entries that should take a total of 40 seconds each. So, based on my wicked math skillz, unless you are Oprah or Bill Gates making $100 for 40 seconds worth of work is a pretty sweet deal. Each blog follower can enter up to 4 times. Each entry will be counted only by a comment on the blog giveaway post.
Contest will go until July 18th at midnight at which time I’ll draw a winner (on my 30th birthday – July 19th)!
OnlineShoes.com sponsored this contest as well as many others like it. But seriously, who reads the fine print? Shouldn't you be telling more friends to enter?
