It’s totally time for some new Double Play!! If you’ve played before, you know the rules and I hope you’ll indulge me to repeat. I do get some questions on this so I do my best to explain it up front. Incidentally, last time we played Double Play the blog candy winner did not have the words so the bonus went out to another reader – in other words, gather up those words!! The first word will go up on Friday (9/24) around noon and the last word will go up on Tuesday (9/28) around noon.
Why do I do this? Many aspects of blogging are one-way. I say what I think or what’s going on and then I’m off to the next thing. I’ve enjoyed so much, some of the conversations that have gone back and forth through comments and quite frankly the blog candy post comments are the best. I’ve learned from reading your thought provoking comments, how very special my readers are. I really do appreciate your loyalty :-)
So here we go . . . these are hard times. It’s almost like a modern day depression and after getting over the shock that the family and I would most definitely have to tighten our belts we put on our frugal caps. My kids, at their age, have never lived through such an era so they think I’m a bit of a kook. For your comment this week, finish the sentence, I’m so frugal that . . . Maybe you have a tip that will help the rest of us stretch our resources. Hey, and if you’re in a position that you don’t have to be thrifty, no worries, just leave a comment.
So if this is your first time playing double play, here’s how it works. The above blog candy is up for grabs. You can leave a comment on my blog, on this post, once a day until the end of the candy on Tuesday night at 11:00pm (CST), September 28th. Once the candy ends, I’ll have random.org pick a number that I’ll match to a comment number and that’s the winner. The winner has 48 hours to reach out to me through my contact page which can be accessed on the top menu portion of my blog. All I need is for the winner to tell me they want the prize and give me a mailing address to send it to.
Here is the double play item. Some sweet Prima flowers that didn’t make the past the "gosh that container is too cute to open" syndrome and one of my favorite Stampers Anonymous stamps that I purchased three times. I don’t know how that happens, but I sure did it.
Here’s where the "double" part comes in. I’ll have a "Word of the Day" that will be posted in the box below two times per day for the duration of the blog candy. The morning word will go up right after 12 o’clock midnight (CST), then it will be erased and a new word put in its place right after 12 o’clock noon (CST). Pop in quick to visit this main blog candy post and write the word down. (Don’t put the words in your comment!!) Collect the words until September 28th, there will be a total of 8 words and if your name is picked for the blog candy and you can give me the 8 words when you claim your candy – you get the Prima Flowers and the Stampers Anonymous stamp too. If the blog candy winner doesn’t have all the words to win the bonus, the next name I draw will have a chance. I’ll keep drawing until we have a winner. Better grab the words and keep them to yourself just in case!!
