Photo print giveaway!

Aaah! It's almost the end of the month! Dang passage of time. How does this happen?

OK, OK. I promised a print giveaway in honor of National Photography Month.

So how's this:
  • I can't think of any way to trick encourage you to comment regularly, so it occurs to me that I should be the one providing the goods. Comment here letting me know you're game for the print (say "Put my name in" or something), and what you'd like to see more of. Photos? Animals? Travel write-ups? My ridiculous drawings? Sentences that don't end in "of?" Basically, just give feedback, plus saying you're in.
  • Or, "follow" me on that Google widget at right, and/or on Twitter, and leave a comment below letting me know you did (go ahead and count it if you already follow me; just let me know in the comments here so I can count you).
  • Or, "like" the page I just created for Arizona Writer. I promise it's going to get much better; just promise you'll come back later when it's a proper page. Comment below letting me know you did that. (Same thing if you already have. Let me know below in the comments and you're in.)
Do any or all of these, and I'll enter you up to three times to win a print of your choosing (pretty much any of my shots you see on Flickr, with a few exceptions -- but I'm assuming you don't want a shot of my son anyway). I can get it printed at up to 11" x 14" (or 10" x 15", or 10" x 10", 8" x 10", or smaller if you choose -- up to this range, depending on your preference and the shot you choose). Does that make sense? I'll either use a randomizer thing, or just go low-tech and put a bunch of names in a hat and have my son choose. I'll take entries through the end of May. Sound good? Good. Enter. Pretty please with black widow spiderlings on top?

Maybe one of these? I've got more birds. And more insects. And clouds and sunsets. And, of course, spiders.

I am a 'sentences that end in "of"' a lover of.

kirsten said... Best Blogger Tips

I am especially fond of your hilarious stories of parenting. And stories about being covered in millions of black widows. And your pretty pictures. And David's pretty pictures. In summary, I just like the lot of you. :)

(please let me win a photo print)

My favorites (as I'm sure you already know) are the illustrated stories. They're hilarious! I like everything else too, but I love those the best.

Leaving a comment, following on Twitter, and Liked you on FB. Want to win a print!

I don't tweet (twit?), but I did go 'like' your page, which I would have done, anyway. I love your nature shots, your son-enjoying -nature shots, and your amazing sunset shots. But what brings me back to your blog (besides loyalty) is your parenting and daily life stories. You are blunt, honest, and funny.

So, can I have a print now? :-D

Liked the fb page, will follow on twitter (but not much of a twitter person).

I enjoy everything about your blog, especially the pictures and your "loser" stories. They totally crack me up.

val said... Best Blogger Tips

I am continually jealous of both your photography and work ethic, and your snark reminds me that you are a Hosey...

I too live in Arizona, and have for most of my life. I love that you are able to capture the beauty of this misunderstood place.

monstergirlee said... Best Blogger Tips

Ah, sentences ending in "of" - one of my faves.
So if I won I would pick a bird or insect, that dragonfly is quite lovely.
