STOP GIVING AWAY AWESOME STUFF WHEN I'M TOO BUSY TO ENTER!

Dear Blog-o-buddies:

We've had good times together, I know we have. You've said some funny stuff, I've said some funny stuff, we've laughed, cried, cringed, eaten way more ice cream than the FDA recommends. We're buds, I believe that.

So I can be real with you. Life has been, in a word, CRAZY. Crizazy. Which unfortunately means I've been too busy to make the desired rounds of my favorite blogs. But I try to check in on the Google Reader and see who's saying what around the hinterwebs. And I'm noticing a disturbing trend.

You're having contents. Cool contests. With fun things like ARCs and pretty books and maybe a fun doodad or two. Okay, I get it. Contests are fun. Contests make people happy. Heck, contests make me happy.

But you know what doesn't make me happy, blog-o-buddies? When you have awesome contests that I can't enter because I'm too mother-fudging busy. It's like you all got together and decided to pass out all the fun books when I was out sick from class.

I'll kindly ask you to cease and desist with the awesomeness until I'm at a point where I can enter your fabulous contests again. I think this is a perfectly reasonable request, don't you, gentle readers?

Sincerely and with much love and hope of fun cool things coming her way,
JEM

P.S. ALL YOUR BOOKS ARE BELONG TO US.

Hello, JEM!
How did I not find my way over to your blog before?

Funny you should mention contests, because I was thinking it was obligatory to have one when you hit 100 followers. (Not that I'm there yet.) But I was starting to worry about it.

Are you saying I should just give it a pass? ;)

Hi Dianne! Good to see you here, can't wait to read your book!

I'm not saying you need to give it a pass, so long as I get like 20 extra entries :).

You always crack me up. Tell me your email and I'll send you a personal notice next time I'm giving stuff away :)
