monthly blog contest(UPDATE: The February contest ends today at noon CMT. I cannot stress enough that if you are entering as “Anonymous”, you must leave contact information! I have had quite a few anonymous entries which will not be eligible for the drawing because I have no contact information)
This week, I will be celebrating my 500th post. Well, celebrating may be too strong of a word, but I’ll at least be recognizing that it’s happened. Word is, that I’m even having another giveaway. Oh, all right. I am having a giveaway. And I’ve decided I love this giveaway thing so much, that I’m hopping on the bloggy bandwagon and I’m going to have a monthly giveaway. Yep, the last week of every month, I’ll be giving y’all something, anything…well,whatever I have on hand, to be honest. ‘Cause I’m not made of money you know…I just like showering the people I love with love. I’m giving like that.

I even made a little button for it – that’s how committed I am.
Here’s the code for it if you want to add it to your sidebar for a little linky love. It’s not required for entry into the monthly contest, but it is appreciated. Besides…how can you not want that cute littly birdy on your blog? I mean, really. So here’s the code if you need it:

<a href=”; target=”_blank”><img src=”; border=”0″ alt=”simply a musing blog monthly contest”></a>

So what’s the prize for this month? Good question. I thought about it long and hard…looked around my house and decided on this (okay, I stole it from my daughter’s fund-raiser box, but I’ll give her the $10 it cost, honest I will):

It’s one of those candles . It is tripled scented and will burn forEVER. Well, okay, 25-30 hours. The scent is Muscadine, which to me is quite beautiful, but if your smeller doesn’t like it, we can probably look through the box and pick another scent. Because, again, I’m giving like that.

~The contest begins today and ends Friday, 2/29 at 12pm CMT.
~One entry per person, please. (I will enter your name FIVE more times if you mention this contest on your blog or link to it in your sidebar using the html code I’ve provided – just let me know you’ve posted in the comments so I can visit.)
~You do not have to have a blog to enter – just be sure to leave me your contact information in the comments.
~If this sounds like extortion, I assure you it is. NOT. I just need you to get the word out about this contest – y’all have readers I don’t have. Eventually, I’d like to start offering bigger giveaways, but that stuff takes time. I’m just a widdle bwog.

So help me celebrate my 500th post, won’t you? Enter in the comments now and then go tell everybody about it. Please?
