Thanks and Giveaway Opportunity!

Happy Monday everyone!
I want you guys, my readers, to know how much you mean to me, how much this blog means to me. Your support and comments always brighten my day and I love the idea that someone reads and appreciates something I write. I am constantly looking for new ideas, giveaways, and joining different blog communities to expand The Ink Puddle and find ways to give you the best reading experience I possibly can.

I know there are weeks where I post everyday and some weeks when there's only a couple, but with being a college student, some weeks are heavier than others. But that's the number one priority in my life right now and luckily, I know there isn't one of you who isn't understanding to that.

So, I want to take the time to remind you that if there is anything you want to say, have questions about (books, e-readers, misc), or books you want to discuss/ review. Let me know. You guys drive this thing just as much as I do and I want to give you what you want to hear about.

In appreciation to you guys, here is what I'm going to do. Right now, The Ink Puddle has 20 followers, but I know due to our over 1600 views in the past 2 months and 8 days that there are many more people who check us out, but don't necessarily follow. My goal is to have 50 followers by Halloween. If I can get 30 more followers who actively participate or read through The Ink Puddle, I will giveaway of 2 $10.00 Amazon giftcards (or if you have a Nook, a Barnes and Nobles gift card if you choose).

Here's how to sign up:
1) Follow us on our blog. (If you aren't sure how, click here.)
2) Follow us on Facebook.
3) Over the next month and 11 days, make at least a couple of comments on posts with your e-mail address or your blogger ID.

All of the people who join and do this will be entered into the giveaway that will take place on November 1st assuming we make it to our 50 follower goal. (Note: if you're already a follower, you aren't excluded, just skip straight to the active involvement stage of the process.) If this goes over well, we may just have another one just in time for Christmas...

My goal isn't to get to gather more people here who aren't ever going to pay attention but to reach more friends who are interested and will get something out of what The Ink Puddle does. So spread the word and help us make our goal.

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck!
