It's a Giveaway!

video

ETA: We have a winner! Something She Wrote's 100th follower is VirtualWordsmith. Congratulations, Lynn!

Because she signed up under her own steam, she gets both books! Lynn, look for them sometime next week.

To any newcomers: I hope that, despite the fact the books have already been given away, you'll make yourselves at home. I welcome your visit anytime!

Thanks, everyone. This was a lot of fun, and I sure appreciate each of you.

Girllll, love your vid! I laughed with ya with the knee bump. :) (I'd have probably fallen off the table or broken it.)

Tweeting now and adding a link to today's blog post. You'll get your 100+ today! Hugs

Kristen Painter said...

Too late. I twittered it, silly or not. Hah!

Jessica said...

Cute!
Sounds like some great books *wishing I'd be the 100th* LOL

Congrats on all the followers. That's pretty amazing. :-)

Stephanie Faris said...

I LOVE the shirt and I got a huge giggle over the knee bump. Congrats on 100 followers!

Lori said...

Great video, as always. I see that you have 95 followers already, so it's working!

Janna Qualman said...

Angie - Thanks! Have a great weekend, and enjoy your special activity tonight.

Kristen - LOL! Thank you. :D

Thanks, Jessica. You're on your way, too!

Stephanie - Dare I confess? It's a Revenge of the Nerds shirt, and the back (though I didn't realize until I'd already bought it *smacks head*) has an inappropriate reference. This is my at-home tee. :D

Lori - The crazy thing is, those three found me and signed up after the taping but before the posting! I was shocked! And thanks. :)

CKHB said...

Angie Gumbo Writer brought me over here! I already like the blog. Awesome shirt, awesome signs on the wall. Yes, I'm tempted to wait to try to be your #100, but I'll be nice and sign up sooner.

;-)

Melanie Avila said...

But I want a twinkieeeeeeeeee!

Funny, I noticed your shirt a second before you pointed it out. Very cute. :)

This is a great idea -- good luck! But I have a question -- can I unfollow you, then refollow, and score both books? Bwhahahaha!

Lisa E. said...

Lol! Love the video Janna...that shirt is classic! :) I've been meaning to follow your blog for awhile now, hopefully I'll be #99 for ya! :)

JLC said...

Yay! I have a feeling you'll have your 100th person before the morning is finished! This is a great blog, its been fun following it!

Janna Qualman said...

CKHB - Welcome! And thanks. :) I like your blog, too!

Melanie - Turd. (< A term of endearment, of course.) I figured someone would suggest that, and I shoulda figured it'd be you. LOL!

Lisa - Yay! Glad to have you aboard.

JLC - It's happening so quickly! And thanks for the kind comment.

Amy Sue Nathan said...

Great video - and I followed - but I would have done that without the book incentive and did so knowing I was #97.

'Cause it's all about you, Janna!

Marybeth Poppins said...

Too funny! Love the video. You are too cute!

I'll tweet away! Hope you get your 100th by the end of the day!

Lady Glamis said...

I'm still laughing about the twinkies... haha. Oh wait, I'm supposed to pay attention. Okay, I'll advertise you on Facebook for sure! I'm so sorry about following you anonymously now... you would be up one follower if my little face hadn't disappeared. But I'm still following you, technically. I'm just invisible, so remember that. :D

Good luck!

Oh, and you're super cute by the way!

septembermom said...

You are so sweet in your video! Congrats on getting close to 100 followers! That's terrific:)

Suzanne said...

Okay! Now you have me! Super nice blog.

Janet said...

Cleary, my child, you do not understand the power of Twitter. Behold.

Ladybird World Mother said...

You're up to 98... come on guys... just 2 more!! XX

Janet said...

bit.ly tells me that 10 people have clicked on my Twitter link to this post. Hey, I'm doing my best! The other 18 must be Krisen's... She had a head start.

Analisa said...

I am now a follower because of Angie at Gumbo, who I began to follow because of Kathyrn at Tender Graces. You all make my world larger than the small space I live on :0). Love the video.

Analisa said...

Wow I just found out I was 99. Come on number 100!!!! And whoever you are out of kindness and my so so near win. Please consider following my blog. LOL

celestialwolf said...

I think Angie's right. You'll get your 100 today. As of my comment, you're at 99! Your vblog posts are always funny and enjoyable. It's strange, when I read your posts your "voice" sounds different than your actual voice. Somehow it always takes me off guard. Is that crazy? It's okay, you can say it. I'm mental ;)

Janna Qualman said...

Amy, you're so sweet. Thank you!

Marybeth - Thanks so much!

Lady - It's good to know you're here. :)

septembermom - Do you think I have 'em fooled? ;)

Suzanne - Welcome! And thanks so much.

ROFL, Janet! You're a doll.

Ladybird - Oh, the adrenaline rush!

Janna Qualman said...

Analisa! Thank you! And welcome, lady. :)

Cel! Is that good or bad? All I know is, it stinks that I can't edit my videos like I can my writing. Pfft!

Melanie Avila said...

Woohoo!

Janna Qualman said...

WE HAVE A WINNER!

Congrats VirtualWriter, who popped up as my 100th follower! And, because she signed up of her own accord (that is, without prompting from anyone but me), she WINS BOTH BOOKS.

Lynn, please get me your mailing address, and the titles will be on their way.

Lazy Writer said...

You are too sweet, Janna! Congrats on your 100th follower. Oh, I see it's 101! Awesome! And congrats to VirtualWriter. Just so you know, VirtualWriter, you are getting a lot more than free books. You're going to love Janna's blog! :)

VirtualWordsmith said...

Thanks, Janna. I messaged you at FaceBook with my address. And, Analisa, I'm now following you. :)

Janna Qualman said...

To clarify, because I myself had to think about it:

Blogger's Follower window shows followers in reverse order. Given the VirtualWriter is the first picture, and there are 101 followers, one would think she was the 101st follower. BUT, those without thumbnail photos get ferried to the back of the list (because there's nothing to represent their presence in the window). So, given the timing of the most recent photos, VirtualWriter fell into the 100th slot!

Cindy said...

Hey look! You have 101 now. Great job! I always enjoy your posts and I know all your new followers will, too! Have a great weekend!

Janna Qualman said...

You guys are too quick to keep up with! I feel like a chicken with my head cut off, because between my e-mail notifications of comments, watching all the flurry here and on Facebook, AND minding my two daughters all-the-while (helping one with a craft project and talking another out of a sad, tired fit), it's madness! And I appreciate every second of it. :)

Lazy Writer, stop. You're making me blush.

Lynn - Excellent! Thank you. I hope you enjoy the books.

Thank you, Cindy! I sure hope that's the case.

Analisa said...

Yeah!!!VirtualWordSmith.
Congrats on your win and thanks for following. Love to have u.

celestialwolf said...

Your voice? It's certainly not a bad thing :)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Hot dang! You got it and then some! May you continue to grow and grow (well, your blog, not you). LOL

Lady Glamis said...

See, you passed 100! I told you it'd be no sweat. :D

Kathryn Magendie said...

Hey, we have about the same amount of followers! I forgot to have a 100th follower's party - oh well. pooh.

CONGRATS!!! love the vid!

Donna M. Kohlstrom said...

Where have I been???? I missed this post and I can't believe it!!! Absolutely love your post and video. You're so much fun! And congrats on over 100 followers!! Awesome!!

Janna Qualman said...

Kat - It was fun! You'll have to try a video post.

Donna - I don't know, where have you been? ;) Glad you're here, regardless of timing.

Melanie Avila said...

I still want a Twinkie.

Ana said...

That's wonderful! I know Giveaways are so good, and I have felt for me the most exciting aspect has been individuals entering or encouraging individuals to enter as you'd like them to be a part of a fun experience. (Going to view your video now yey) P.S-The 100th Post Winner has been aired on my blog. Go check out, go check out! YEY)
