Welcome to the New Year!

I am pumped 2010 has now begun!  The holidays are over and I can get things back to normal!  I am looking forward to presenting a great deal of new things for you guys here and on my YouTube channel.  As you all know, yesterday was the end of the first quarterly giveaway on my blog, so I wanted to give you guys a bit of info regarding that to get us started this new year!

Tomorrow, I am going to begin working on numbering all the comments that were posted, starting with the first post I made that was eligible for comment entries.  I will compile this list and then utilize to produce a random winner!  Once I have the winner, I will post here and upload a winner video to YouTube.  Additional information will be included in those posts for the winner.  Please remember, if you don't win this go around, keep trying!  There will be one of these giveaways every quarter!  I would love to do a monthly giveaway, but if I did that, the prizes would be smaller.  I would rather be able to give a bigger, better prize 4 times a year, rather than just a little prize once a month.  Since I am the sole sponsor and contributor to these giveaways, I unfortunatly can't drop tons of cash on all the millions of prizes I WISH I could give!  Plus, this will give room to have some YouTube video contests as well!

I did have some viewers ask me to enter them or if they could just type enter me to be entered.  I do have a blog post that include the rules, but I want the comment entries to always be relavent.  Any comment that is irrelevant to the post will not be considered.  I only find this fair to the people that come everyday to read my posts and enjoy being active in my blog.  I don't expect a book for a comment, but "enter me" isn't what I am looking for either.  I hope you guys understand what I am going for with this!  :)

So since last quarters' giveaway ended yesterday, TODAY was the first day of this periods giveaway!  I am deeming this the Q1 2010 giveaway...makes it a little!  This will end in three (3) months, in March and we will follow the same timeline in every giveaway after!  Easy cheesy!  But, if you do have any questions, just email me at

So, start commenting now to get your entries started!  The more you comment, the more you are entered!  I will be picking up the prizes soon!  I believe, as of now, one of them is going to be the CHI Keratin Mist since so many of my subs seemed to show interest in the product that was one of my November favs!  I will announce the prizes as soon asI get them all gathered!

Thanks to everyone that has participated, subscribed and has started to get involved here and on my YouTube channel!  I really appreciate and am thankful for each and every one of you guys!  I look forward to all of the new stuff that I will be presenting for you guys!  Talk to you more soon!!!

I'm looking forward to what this year will bring. I think being involved in the blog and channel are important. Even if you weren't holding a contest, I enjoy reading your blog and watching your videos. We can always learn little tips and tricks from each other, get opinions and advice, and see what inspires each other. It's also a good way to get to know each other.

I agree with toshiam, That it is not the contest we are here for but you. In fact you are the reason I am on Blogger and I am so thankful for you and your ideas. I really can not wait to see just how much you grow this year and give us. It has been a joyful experience and ride last year and I am so staying for the next years to come. Much love
