Getting To Know The Little Guys (1)

Getting To Know The Little Guys is a new feature I am going to be doing weekly to spotlight small blogs with less than 100 followers. There is a huge crop of new blogs out there- mine being one of them but I have been lucky enough to gain a pretty quick following- but small doesn't mean bad. My goal is for my readers to read these weekly posts, get to know the bloggers a little more, and start finding some awesome new blogs that they might not have otherwise known about.

This week I have Sherry from Flipping Pages for All Ages here to do a guest post. There is much of Sherry's personality that comes out in her posts which is the main reason I really like her blog. So without any more blabbing from me... here is Sherry's guest post to kick off the beginning of what I hope continues to be a weekly thing.
Christmas Eve Guest Post 12/24/09

So Christmas is right around the corner, and i mean literally the little ones are counting down the hours until Christmas morning is upon us! I know of a certain few items that I wanted this x-mas and a few that I already know I got. My mother was kind enough to get me books 1-5 in the Maximum Ride Series by James Patterson. I've heard nothing but amazing things about this and I'm stoked to actually have most of the books in the series so I can read them one right after the other. I also got some giftcards to Borders, which happens to be my favorite bookstore. I think it's just the atmosphere but I could spend hours in there. Heck I could spend hours in ANY bookstore, or any store with books for that matter. Other than that I had a few books picked out that I wanted and I still have my fingers crossed that they will end up under my tree this Christmas. Fallen by Lauren Kate and The Maze Runner by James Dashner are just a few recent releases that I haven't picked up for myself yet but are ones that i'm still very eager to read. So what are you hoping to get this Christmas/holiday season? Is there anything you already know you'll get but you can't wait to actually get your hands on? Did you make sure you got something wonderful for everyone on your list? I hope everyone has a great holiday and an awesome New Year's. Speaking of the New Year, I will be hosting my first ever contest over at my page starting tomorrow. Read below for more details!

My End of Year Contest/First Contest!!!

So here's how it's going to play out. I will officially open up the contest during some point tomorrow(12/25/09). It will be linked to my navigation page so if you send anyone over you'll be able to link right to the contest rules and all that good stuff. It will be open until January 8th, so two weeks total. Their will be extra entries but you'll have to wait to see what exactly must be done to earn those extra entries. This is how the prizes will work. Starting on the 25th I will post a book a day with it's review, until the end of the year, and those 7 books will be my favorites from 2009. At the end of the contest, the winner will be able to choose 1 of those 7 books that I posted about during the last week of December. That is the prize for now, when the time comes, and it may, I might possibly have more followers. Every time I reach a new goal for followers the prizes will get better. If you want more prizes, spread the word!

*Here's what could possibly be up for grabs:

75 Followers- The winner of the contest will get to choose two books from the 7 on the list.

100 Followers- The first place winner will get to choose two books and a second place winner will get to choose one book from the list. It will be first come first serve as far as picking out of the 7 books goes.

125 Followers- Same as the 100 followers, but a third place winner will win a random book of my bookshelf, I will tell them the book ahead of time and if they don't like it can choose to receive a bag of swag instead.

If the time comes where I need to up the prizes, I will!

Starting tomorrow if you go to my page, Flipping Pages for All Ages, and click on the contest link in my naivigation bar you will find all of this exact information. But now you know ahead of time so make sure you stop back by tomorrow to enter!

I just want to say a big thanks to Kari for allowing me to guest post on her blog!

Sherry <3
