The thing that's so impressive about CSN is the amazing range of products they carry. You can buy anything from a new bed to new shoes to a new wine rack... they have more than 200 online stores filled with a products in these categories: home decor, furniture, housewares, baby and kid items, outdoor, home improvement, bags and luggage, shoes, health and fitness, pets, office, and school.
The other thing that's so impressive about CSN is that they noticed this here little ol' blog. I RULE. This bodes so well for my plan to take over the Internet!
So they wrote to me and offered to give me a $60 gift certificate to award to one of my readers, which I thought was an excellent idea on their part. Go, CSN. If you win, you get to spend that $60 on whatever you want in any of their 200+ shops. There may be shipping charges or international fees, but whatever. It's still 60 free bucks.
To win this glorious aforementioned 60 bucks, here's the stuff to do:
1. Comment below. In your comment, tell me the best thing that's happened to you this week. (For no good reason. I just like hearing people's good news.)
2. Follow me on Google Friend Connect. (The "follow" button is on the upper right side of this blog.)
3. Follow me on Twitter.
4. Name one book I've written.
5. Tweet anything about this blog. I totally know-- I hate tweeting about contests I'm entering because I don't want the extra competition, so you don't have to tweet about the contest. You could tweet about my general awesomeness if you like, as long as there's a link to this blog somewhere in your tweet.
If you do any of the optional things, LEAVE A SEPARATE COMMENT for each thing you do. Also, make sure I have a way to contact you-- either leave your e-mail address in your comment or make sure it's visible on your profile.
Giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. on August 23, and I'll announce the winner on the 24th. Good luck!
