Kayni, our kailiyan in Washington DC/Maryland, is giving gifts to the first five commenters of her post here. Unfortunately for you, the contest is over because five people – including yours truly – already commented. But, still, even if you won’t receive a gift, you should still visit her blog.
Now, the catch in Kayni’s gift giving contest is that those who won should make the same offer in their blog. So let me make the offer here. I will send a gift to:
1) The first five bloggers who will leave a comment here AND who will do a similar offer in their blogs.
Now, because we have a lot of readers here who don’t have a blog, I will also send a gift to:
2) The first five readers who will leave a comment here AND who will immediately email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) after they posted their comment to identify themselves as the commenter (ex. I am commenter Anonymous 10:30). In your email, make sure you include your name and the address where I will send your gift.
Readers who don’t have a blog are exempted from the “you should make a similar offer in your blog” rule but, as a substitute, they are expected to do random acts of kindness forever and ever hehe.
Okay? I hope the rules are clear. Now what is the gift? It will be a copy of a hard-to-read book of stories and essays, written by different people, which I co-edited.
I’m not joking about that “hard to read” part. But it’s hard to read not because the book is high falutin’, academese, or pretentious but because the text used in the printing is a bit small. Those of you who have eye problems might need a magnifying glass to read it. Still, I’m sure (or I hope) that you will find some nuggets about our country when you do read it.
Okidok? Let the contest begin.
