Who Doesn't love free stuff?

My blog buddy Kat, from My Single Mom Life is holding a contest. It's not just any contest either, For her birthday she is giving away a diamond pendant. Gem Affair is sponsoring the contest!Now, while this contest IS open to US and Canadian residents, you do have to jump through a few hoops to enter.

OK, OK, you don't HAVE to jump through the hoops, you can enter with just one comment, but if you :

1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me which piece of jewelry you'd love to have from Gem Affair.com.
2. Twitter about this contest. Please leave me your username so I can verify.
3. Stumble this post. Please give me your username so I can verify.
4. Follow me on Twitter. Please give me your username so I can verify.
5. Follow Gem Affair on Twitter. Please give me your username so I can verify.

For 5 additional entries for each, do one or both of the following, and leave a separate comment for each 1 that you do, I will add your +5 entries to your entries.

You get more entries into the contest!

Am I the only one here who smells a franchise opportunity?

I should totally start up a blog advertising that I will take care of the nitty gritty details that go into entering online contests. It used to be that all you had to do to enter a contest was comment on a post - I even know one blog site that holds weekly contests and all you have to do is email the blog owner with the contest name in the subject line of the email to enter. BUT most people require the hoops and the jumping and the bending over backwards.

This isn't to say you should stop entering contests where you "have" to do multiple things to enter (becuase really, you CAN enter with Just A Comment) BUT it sure makes me stop and think, do i really want this item? Is this really something i want to put forth the effort to enter? And, if it is, like in the case Of Kat's contest for the diamond pendent, I DO enter.

I know that TIME is the number one reason I am not entering as many contests anymore, so, since time is so very valuable, there is a market for someone to take care of the details. I'm not sure how really, it could be done safely, as so many things, blogs, twitter, feed readers, all need a password to be logged into, to get the stuff done, but, ya know... it's an idea!

ANYWAY. In the mood for a very nice necklace? A Very nice FREE necklace? Go to Kat's, leave a comment - or if you have time, do more! And good luck!

That's a great idea actually!

I wish you luck in Kat's contest.

P.S. be sure to leave Kat a "Happy Birthday!" We think it's pretty neat that she's giving away the goods instead of getting them.
