Wednesday Wanderings - 2/11/09

I wander around the blogosphere and bring you what I find.

This week I have a new-to-me-blog to share, giveaways, and a request. 

I happened on this blog and am so glad I did.  If you haven't visited Writing for Kids (While Raising Them), you need to.  This week she even has a giveaway going on.  You can enter to win a signed. 4 book set of the Howie I Can Read series.  She has posted a great interview with author/illustrator Aaron Zenz.  Stop by, read the interview, comment, and enter the giveaway.  Make sure to stop by often as great things are going on over there.

There are some great giveaways going on over at 5 Minutes for Giveaways.  This is a sister site to 5 Minutes for Mom, another great blog.  Two that I thought were great are the Roku Player with a 6 month Netflix subscription and The Amazing Box-o-Box.

My friend Kathy, who blogs at Bermudaonion's Weblog has listened to her favorite audiobook so far and she wants to share it with some of you.  She has 3 copies of Little Pink House to give away.  Stop by and get yourself entered.

Gwynne at Connecting2Give helps fulfill needs for people, but she also posts about gives on her blog.  This give is her personal one.  She recently bought a Targus Grypton Tripod for her new video camera, and she bought an extra one to give away to someone else.  She wants to know why you want it, what you would do with it, etc.  Well, this is something I would love to have!  For my birthday last year, I got a great new Fuji camera.  It does so many things that I have yet to figure out, but one thing is that it has a timer on it, so I could set it to take pictures.  My husband and I need a new picture together, but there is not usually anyone around to take it.  Having a tripod for my camera would help with this.  I could really put it to good use!

Now, for my request.  I entered a photo in a contest over at 5 Minutes for Moms, Horsing Around Photo Contest.  Well, the finalists are out today and I am 1 of 20.  WOW!  So, there will be 3 winners chosen to receive a $100 gift certificate to A Rocking Horse to Love.  First prize goes to the entry with the most votes, and I need your votes.  My picture is #9.  Please vote by clicking on the link above - thank you!!  I will be posting a new giveaway tomorrow, and voting gets you an extra entry. 

That's all for this week...until next week, enjoy the blogs, read alot and happy entering!
