I have almost no audience for this blog, which is fine with me. I post infrequently, and I'm boring. Work and my 5-year-old keep me too busy to blog everytime I think of something interesting to say.
I would rather read other peoples' blogs than write my own. My favorites are on the sidebar on the right-hand side of this page.
I was reading The Bloggess tonight, and I was touched by a couple of comments. There are a couple of Bloggess fans who are unemployed and can't afford to buy her book. Now, I fancy myself a nice person (though my students might disagree), and since I happen to have an extra gift card to Amazon, I'm going to give away a copy of her book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir).
Here's the problem: I know almost nothing about Blogger, so I don't know how to contact the winner except to ask those entering the give-away to leave an email address in a comment below. Leave a joke, too, if you don't mind. A clean joke. Why? My 5-year-old is really into jokes, especially "Knock, knock" and "What do you get if you cross a ..." jokes, and I have run out. Bloggess readers are the funniest, clever folks on the planet so I figured I would mine the gold. Deadline to comment is April 1, 2012.
I promise I won't do anything with your email address. And, since I don't have a big audience, I doubt there's any risk of anyone else doing anything with it either. I just want to give away a book. I'll let random.org pick the winner. Good luck!
CAVEAT: U.S. delivery only (the contiguous 48 states); I'm nice but not rich.
