Wow. Seriously. I’m literally speechless. This was not the blog I had intended writing today. Mostly I was going to bitch about how Dr. Pepper is running a cap contest to win a free XBOX and how even though I’m driving myself into an early Diabetic 8 toed (‘cause I dropped a few digits due the Diabetes) grave, I can’t seem to win it. Then I was going to mention how I started playing Splatterhouse and Homefront. Give my initial impressions, probably swear some, talk about how much I liked Driver, add a run on sentence or two, and finish up by talking about how I won’t be talking about my pants today.
But that can wait.
This Section is really from the Heart and Contains no Jokes
I’m literally overwhelmed. I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to hit about 40 followers by the end of the month. Gaining blogging followers isn’t easy on TA. I thought if I put out some good shit I could hit it. I didn’t think I would hit it today. When I said seeing added followers makes me happy I meant it. I never expected to reach 20. Or 30. I want to say Thank You to everyone that follows me. Really. No Bullshit, no smugness. I hope you guys get a chuckle every now and then. That’s what I really want.
This Section is about a Contest (Sort Of)
Let’s not make a big deal out of this. I’ve never done a contest because I wanted this blog to stand on it’s own merits. If it succeeded so be it. If no one liked, then I suck and I would have quit writing it. But it’s done pretty well. It brings me a lot of joy writing it and seeing what you guys have to say
“Jesus, we get it already, you like us, blah blah, blah. Cut the chatter and get to the contest Alex Trebeck”
Sorry. Anyway. Here it is. It’s not a contest. Think of it as “Follower Appreciation” I want to say thank you for the happiness you’ve given me. There is no magic number of followers I have to hit, nothing for you to do other than enter. I think I’ll just do a random number drawing. You pick a number, I’ll coerce someone into making a Youtube video with a random number draw, post it, and there is your winner.
“isn’t this just a way for him to pump up followers while trying to look like he’s not trying to pump up followers?”
No. If I wanted everyone to know I was giving shit away I put something about it in the title. I’m trying to bury it way down here so you have to be a reader to find it. If you’ll read back in the blogs a little bit you’ll know I tried to donate to the GSPM anonymously but they never took me up on it. I have money left over from that. I haven’t figured out first prize yet. Something in the mid $20’s. I don’t care. The winner can pick as long as it’s less than 30 bucks. Don’t kill me, “I’m just a poor corrupt Public Official” It could be MSP if you want that, a game if you want that, a gift certificate if you want to go out and get liquored up. You win, You pick. There’s a second prize too. Want to see second prize?
Second prize is a set of Steak Knives.
Last Rule stuff: it’s open to new followers til Friday night. If you haven’t followed before then, don’t send a number. It’s a thank you to people who are already followers, not people who want to win free Steak Knives. I don’t really have a way of checking, so don’t be a Douche. I’m sure I’ll do it again in the future for new people. Allright. Cut off Friday for entrants, Pick a number between 1 and 1000. With 40 followers of so you should have about a 5% chance of winning something. I’ll take numbers til next Friday 05/11 and post the results the following week. Boom! Told!
This Section is where I give a couple of Shoutouts
I want to thank both StophJ
for continuing to Pimp my Blog. I’m know for a fact without their help no one would know who I am. More than that, they are both really cool people. If TA had a welcoming committee, they would be it’s first ambassadors. Also, you can blame FinnegansDirge
for my overuse of headers. Thanks man.
They are a lot more people I should name, but that’s kind of what the Contest/Giveaway/Steakie Thingie is for.
This Section is where I realize I’ve really overdone it with the Headers
Stay Thirsty my Friends. And Thanks.
