Participating to win
I am still fairly new to this blog thingy and although I enjoy it immensely I need to find the time to view others and figure out how this all works or should work. One blog I visited this week and is now listed here is "Blacksheeps bit of web". I found this blog not only entertaining and informative but a connection in that the talk was of a porridge spurtle ( my Scottishness) and The Choir ( a show I have been watching on public television starring Gareth Malone who does an amazing job getting a community to sing together- you need to watch it). Now Edgar that writes the blog has a giveaway coming up and to win you have to submit a comment to his blog and then a draw will be made from those that have entered. This I am assuming gets the visitor to comment and hopefully to visit often...in his case I am not sure it is necessary as I will visit just to see what Edgar has to say. But I did comment to enter for the prize as I want to participate as a blogger and let him know I was there and that enjoyed his musings. Also, if I mention his blog on my blog I get an extra chance to win...am I participating yet? The Blacksheep site was listed on Starry Eyed Stitchers blog as well as a few others I have visited, so it is popular one, and the odds of me winning may be stacked against me....now that I have told you..
