$50 #LinkYourLife Birthday Giveaway Entry Deadline Extended to May 27!

Happy 1st Birthday #LinkYourLife

Here are the revised deets:

One of you #LinkYourLifers is going to get a $50 Amazon or cash gift card (you choose), but we want you to work for it just a little bit. You can do this if you’re new to #LinkYourLife as well. Here’s how it goes:

Write a post short by or long about any of the following and publish it by FRIDAY MAY 27: what #LinkYourLife means to you, how you heard about it, why you keep coming back, what you gain, friends you have made or any other aspect of LYL that speaks to you. (You know I’m about to teach a class on love letters. Taking that route will earn you bonus points in my heart, but it will still only get you one entry for this prize drawing.) It would be cool if you linked to a post you read through #LinkYourLife that resonated with you, but that’s totally not an entry requirement.

If you want to link back to a How To #LinkYourLife post, there’s one on THQ here, and one on OTV here. But really just let Shareen or myself know that you wrote a thing. Send us a link in a FB or Twitter message or comment at the bottom of this post saying, “Hey, here’s one!” That way we won’t miss you when we do our drawing.

I will combine my super-duper-wild-linky-thinky skills with Shareen’s eff-it-I-got-this skills to collate your links (probably by making a numbered list and using randomg.org to pick a number). We will also feature your posts in a couple of roundups! The winner will be chosen by the following Friday.

And how about next year we have two gifts? And so on for every #LinkYourLife birthday?

With love,

Shawna and Shareen
