Bribery is totally okay with me, today that works for you people (Giveaway)

March 25, 2011

I am a huge fan of bribery. It was often a resort my parents turned to-they figured out pretty early on there wasn’t much they couldn’t cajole me into doing by dangling something sparkly or a book or a pair of shoes in front of me. (Except for geometry. I loathed it. I said in elementary school I would never need anything past multiplication and division and I was right. If I can’t do it in my head or make excel do it, I don’t need it.)

I am HOPING that the internets are as fond of bribery as I am, since I have a proposition for all you peeps out there.

As I have mentioned, I was nominated for Circle of Moms Top 25 Funny Moms. (I didn’t use bribery in this instance and no one will fess up to having nominated me. So someone just happens to be nice. Or they thought it would be funny to watch my competitive nature kick in.)


Currently, I am in about 27th place and voting ends Monday.

Though I am not aware of any mirrorball trophies I could win as a result of being in the Top 25, I STILL WANT TO PLACE.

So I am bribing people.

IF I place in the Top 25, one lucky reader/voter will win TWO prizes.

The first?

It’s a GORGEOUS sterling silver bracelet from Lisa Leonard signs. The charm says dream. Don’t we all need a little reminder of that every now and then? It also has a lovely little freshwater pearl dangling off of it.


In honor of it being the Top 25, I am going to throw in a $25 Target gift card.

How awesome is all that?

AND it’s not ever super hard to take part. All you have to do is head here and scroll down to Amy’s Blam. You’ll see the square version of my header. Next to my description, there’s an orange circle beside a number. Click the circle-when your vote goes through it will turn gray.

THAT’S IT. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE everyone more than 200 pounds of glitter if you would vote ONCE A DAY between now and March 28.

When you vote, cause of course you think I’m funny-or want the prizes-leave me a comment here that you did. (Honor system as I have no way of checking.) You getย ONE entry for leaving the comment and voting. You get ONE additional entry for tweeting about the giveaway/telling people to vote for me (Include @amyblam in the tweet so I can see it.)

Easy peasey, right? IF (when?) I place in the Top 25, I will do a random drawing for the winner. And who knows? I might add something else between now and then.

Thank you all so much! I so appreciate all of you that read and comment and email.

    I don’t necessarily need a bribe to help out a good person & a good cause. But that bracelet has got to be the most wonderful thing I’ve seen from LL yet! I’ve voted. (I’ll do the other thingy later.) I bet you break into the top 10 with a carrot like that.

    Congrats on the honor & all that.
