My 3,000th Post + Target Gift Card Giveaway

by Ann-Marie on March 7, 2014

Chaos Is BlissWell. Here we are. My 3,000th post!

I don’t really think that when I wrote my 1,000th or 2,000th post that I paid any attention that a milestone was achieved. Some bloggers celebrate their 10,000th Facebook fan or their “blogiversary”. They have a mega giveaway, lots of hoopla and promotion, when really I wonder … do readers even care?

My friends and family might think it’s kind of neat that I’ve written 3,000 blog posts. Let’s face it – that’s a big number!

But to the average reader (wait a minute, y’all are beyond “average”, don’t get me wrong!) – I honestly think you could care less, you’d rather I just get on with it – another great deal, a sweet freebie, or maybe another Pin-worthy recipe.

So I’m not going to write anything profound. No life-changing words of wisdom that will make this post go viral. I’d just like to hit ‘publish’, and take Carlie to Taco Bell. It is Friday, you know. Let’s start the weekend!

I also think it’s been a while since I’ve done a giveaway, so what the heck?!

Let’s give something away.

And since I don’t have a stockpile of amazing gifts to give, I’ll spread my love of all things Target with a $30 Target gift card to give away!

The contest will run now through next Thursday 3/20/14 at 11:59pmET.
