This contest is now closed. The winner has been contacted and responded.
So here's the giveaway. I am giving away a $25 Starbucks gift card to one lucky commenter. All you have to do to be entered is comment on this post and leave your email address. On November 13th, I will draw a name and contact them through the email address they leave. You will have 24 hours to respond to my email or I will draw another name.
Now for my little rant.
3 months ago I was asked to be a guest blogger on a blog and I agreed to do it. I wrote a lengthy blog post, linked to some books and sent it to her. After several days of not hearing anything from her I emailed her to make sure she got my email...2 more days and she finally responds to tell me yes she did that it will be up soon.
So I wait for a month and nothing... It was supposed to go up sometime that month, it never did. I emailed her again and asked when it would be up, because I had already bought the gift card that I was going to be giving away in my guest post. She said she had things going on and she was busy and didn't know when it would go up...all the while other people's posts are going up on her blog, she's posting all over twitter and playing on fb all the time. She was not too busy to do all that.
So I waited another 2 weeks and emailed her again...and again...to ask about my post...she never responded to me. So by now it's been 3 damn months since it was supposed to go up and I have had it. If she decides to post it now, I will not respond to her and not honor our agreement to give away this gift card. I think I gave her more than enough time and sent more than enough emails.
So now you all get a shot at winning this gift card.
