Simple Math: 5 + 500 = Time for a Giveaway!


Today is the 5th blogoversary of She Who Seeks blog! Where, oh where, has the time gone? It just seems like yesterday that I was a fresh young newbie in the blogosphere. And now here I am, five years later, a wizened old crone of a blogger.

But wait, there's more to celebrate!


My blog has made it to the 500+ followers level! Thank you to everyone who reads She Who Seeks or has read it in the past. I'm honoured that people choose to spend some of their precious, precious leisure time here at my site.

So, put these two events together and it can mean only one thing -- it's time for a giveaway! What's up for grabs? This new 2014 calendar!


The calendar has fabulous photos of ancient Celtic monuments and landscapes in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Rich in myth and legend, these sites are the magical "thin places" between the worlds -- places of spiritual awakening and power. Accompanying text by Mara Freeman explains the lore and significance of each site. (Mara Freeman was our guide when My Rare One and I did a pagan tour of southern England a few years ago. She is one of the world's leading experts on Celtic spirituality).

So if you'd like a chance to win this calendar, here's the contest rules:

1. You must be an official Follower to enter. Old, new or just signed up in order to enter the contest, it's all good. And it doesn't matter where you're from in the world, I'll mail it anywhere!

2. In addition to being a Follower, you must leave me a comment on this post. If you want to leave a comment but don't want to be entered, just say so (and that's okay!)

3. One entry per person!

4. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time on Wednesday, September 25, 2013.

5. The draw will be made by random selection on Thursday, September 26 and the results posted here on Friday, September 27.

Good luck, everyone!

Hey congratulations on the 500 followers and 5 years blogging! I'll pass on your calendar if that's okay, being the Bible Bashing Baptist I am, it might be in slight conflict with my faith, plus I always have an Elvis calendar, which is also a conflict but there you go... :D

Snap said...

Well done, my human friend. Five years and over five hundred followers.

My ridiculous human's blog is getting close to seven years old. And he didn't get many followers until I took over.

Way to go, my human friend, Debra.

Pawsitive wishes, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)

Happy Blogoversary!

Holly said...

I don't wish to be entered, but I wish to tell you that I've followed you almost since I started blogging and I am so very very impressed that you've made it to 500 followers! And I am a bit envious too, but not in a bad way. It makes me realize that when I committed blogging, I wanted it to be a place where I shared my thoughts and ideas and that many would be able to see me there. But, I'm like Poo and a bear of very little brains so I don't know how to write each day or even regularly. It's made it hard for me to build a following. I know I'm all right with not writing unless I have something to say or share, but I can't help as feel I've somehow failed.

But, you, YOU! Congratulations for growing this fun place to such a success and I know it will only continue upward and onward! Blessings on you for your sharing.

Robin Larkspur said...

Here I am on the absolutely last day to enter your giveaway. That calendar is almost as impressive as your 5 years of blogging and 500 followers!!! Congrats and more congrats.

jadedj said...

Five years? Five years? I've been reading this here bloggy for FIVE years? Holy mackeral! Congrats.

Wait a minute...five years...five hundred followers...there's something very funny going on here.

Oh...and I'm in...for the prize thingie...and five more years.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

My five years will be here in December. Congratulations on reaching your five years and also on your 500 followers. I am your 510th. :) What a nice giveaway this is..and of course I would to be in on the drawing. Ireland is our historical past. My Grandfather's father brought him here at the age of six..

Here's hoping.
