small giveaway

I am giving away two sets of three cards at my blog, No Polar Coordinates. There's a string attached, if you win, you have to give something (small) away in return, not to me, but to someone else. Sign up if yr interested--the drawing will be a week from today. I am not trying to generate traffic to my blog, I am simply paying forward a really nice prize I won from another blog.

what a great idea! I'm going to spread it around on facebook and twitter and see if people I know would want to participate.

Very cool Mary, I will pass it around too.

Thank you both SO MUCH! I really appreciate it.

Please sign up if you'd like three cards. (No guarantees, going to use a random number generator.)

I didn't even know that you had a blog, Mary. (Nor you, Andrea.) I used to have a blog, but it's so hard to keep it going. Also, when I started back in 2006, it was a much more dynamic environment. Lots of comments, conversation, etc. By 2009, I'd gotten busy, blogging had become such a hard thing to keep up with, and many people had kind of stopped dialoging. I don't know if Twitter and FB have drawn audience away from blogs or what, but I admire anyone who keeps it going. This blog is about all I can manage.

I've been thinking about quitting for all the reasons you mention--I think the blog fad is dying and I' sure facebook etc has something to do with it as well as the fact that like all fads, it's worn itself out.

But it has it's functions and can serve as an online diary. The community seems to be gone, though--and no one wanted my cards because I guess people didn't want to commit to giving soemthing away (or they hated my work!)

I have noticed this too. I keep it going for myself, really. I do miss the community, though.

I wanted to join your card exchange Mary, but I had too much going on right then. I am sorry.
