12 Blogs of Christmas Giveaway: Day 9

On the 9th day of Christmas, Shooting Stars Mag gave to me:

1. A $10 gift card to Borders!

I know most people are giving a book and I might throw one in there or something extra, but I think a lot of you will enjoy picking out your own book so I figured this would work! :-)

Open To: U.S. only (sorry, but the Year's Worth of Books Giveaway is International)

Ends: December 31st

Prize: $10 gift card to Borders

How to Enter: What is your New Year's Resolution? (You MUST be a follower. This is a little treat for all those who support me...but you CAN become a new follower if you really like the blog and want to follow)

+1 if you post this somewhere (leave a NEW comment)

To find all the other giveaways and see who is next:

Thanks to Ellie for letting me help out.

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Eh, I think my new year's resolution is just to make it out alive. And, yeah, hopefully lose the pounds I'll inevitably put on from holiday pigging. It would just be an awesome extra if I could figure things out with my blog too! :)

I honestly don't make new years resolutions..I found that when I started off the year with one, it never got accomplished, and I just felt bad at the end of the year. Now I just set goals for myself throughout the year, whenever I feel one needs to be set!


Linda K said...

Not really a resolution because rarely does anyone follow through with them. Actually a promise to exercise more to lose some weight and reduce my cholesterol.

My resolutions are the usual stuff, diet, go to the gym, quit smoking, etc. I start my resolutions about 2-3 weeks into January. Starting once all the holiday celebrating is over and things are completely back to normal work better for me.

I am a follower. I thought I was one through Google Connect, but turns out I was only a follower through my reader. Now, I follow both ways.

My New Year's resolution will be the same one I've made for the past few years - not to make a resolution. you tend to set yourself up for failure if you set the bar too high. This way, there's no pressure.

Misty said...

I am so opposed to resolutions, because as soon as you "resolve" you end up craving whatever it is.
That being said, I always end up making them anyway. ;D
This year, I am going to try to take a picture every day. We'll see how long that lasts.

Hey nice addition to the 12 blogs of Christmas- and picking your own book is perfect for everyone. =)

My resolution is to focus more on the novel I am working on- getting at least 1 chapter if not 2 out a week so I can get this one finished and work on polishing it and jump into book 2 of the series.

This is both on my sidebar and as part of a blog post here:

My resolution is eat less sugar. I would say "lose weight" but that's kind of cliche and I figure if I focus on the sugar thing that will help goal #2 a lot! Maybe I should say "bake less" because that contributes to the sugar load...

Hold on, I came up with 3...

1. Turn off the inner critic and write something new(revising my first novel killed creative freedom)

2. Perform dance in a coffee shop

3. Continue to reach for a healthy diet and weight.

Can I just say this contest is brilliant?
