Yes, I did say ”Happy Halloversary.” Two years and 11 days ago (borrowing and twisting President Abraham Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg address) Mama Vicky, along with her intrepid daughter/general manager Daphne, inaugurated/ launched my blog – Mama Vicky Says. I entered the 21st century and the computer mainstream by blogging. I realize that Mama Vicky isn’t a fantastic or unusual name for a blog, but honestly I couldn’t start a blog and think at the same time. So there you have it.
I chose the word “Halloversary” because I am combining two special events into one big online party. Since October is the month of Halloween and the inception (It plays with your brain.) of my blog, I am inviting one and all to visit my blog – www.mamavicky.net – this month.
The day after Halloween I will give out a pretty awesome basket, if I say so myself, of new, mystery gifts (valued at $30) along with a $20 Amazon.com gift card, just for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog. The gift basket will be awarded to the winner. There will be a smaller Halloversary gift for the 2nd name chosen. They will receive a $10 Amazon.com gift card.
The last time I had a blog contest I asked visitors to list at least one of their greatest blessings. I received the most wonderful responses. This time around, in order to keep with the theme of party, please either comment on what is your favorite holiday and why, or what was your favorite anniversary and what made it so special? You don’t need to share anything deep or intimate. It is perfectly okay to keep it simple.
The party starts tonight when the bell tolls the bewitching hour of midnight. Invite your friends to join the party if you would like. I am looking forward to hearing from you all.
Open to U.S. Residents only. Ends on October 31st at 11:59 p.m. PST. Thank you.
Good luck to all. Party on (as Bill and Ted often said in
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure)! Blog you later.
