I have decided (1) that I don't have enough regular readers and (2) that a good way to get more is to offer a bribe.  So, in that spirit, I hereby introduce

Jennie's First-Ever Crockpot Giveaway!

One week from today, Tuesday, March 15, one lucky follower will be selected to win a brand-new 

Hamilton Beach 33967 Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker.

This beautiful baby is state-of-the-art, essential equipment for the otherwise-occupied cook.  It has all the bells and whistles you need to look like you slaved, when all you did was fill it up, turn it on, and dash into the house twelve hours later, huffing, puffing, and starving.

To win, you must take two steps:  publicly follow my blog and comment on this post.  Next Tuesday, I will select one commenter at random to win.  Winner will send me, by private e-mail, his or her shipping address.  U.S. shipping addresses only, please.  (Legal stuff:  I am not being compensated in any way by Hamilton Beach or by anyone else, but I am not above that sort of thing;  I make no guarantee as to performance of this fine gadget once it's yours; and I reserve the right to make a reasonable substitution if circumstances warrant.  I'll let the winner know in advance if that is the case.)

It won't help your chances any, because I intend for this to be a completely random raffle, but if you have your own blog or website, you can help boost my readership by linking to my blog.  Grab my button on the right side of this screen, or just paste a link to my blog somewhere on your page.  If you don't have a blog or website, just talk me up at your next cocktail party or something.

My next goal is to top 100 followers, and I'm thinking this will help.  Thank you for reading and good luck!

I want a new Crock Pot like that! We use the one we got when we got married, but it's not super cool like the Hamilton Beach!

I'll be happy to provide recommended reading to your blog. And I see you have a recommended sock knitting book. Yipee!

I'm in! This one looks like a beauty!

Ooh - our crockpot is on the fritz so this is timely. But how do we 'publicly follow' you? You're not looking for walking sandwich boards on the street are you?

jennie said...

LOL Ami - you are already publicly following, so don't worry. When you choose to follow the blog, you have the option of doing so in secret. If you choose that option, I don't know you're following and you don't count in my stats. That's why I want public followers. But if you WANT to walk around with a sandwich board, that's up to you. :o)

I am not above taking the bait. Here is my comment: I love crockpots! And, I love crackpots. And, I love Jennie, but perhaps I already made that clear.


Shel said...


I posted a link to your blog on my facebook page. Keep the inspirations coming! (And I'd love the crockpot, too!)

Just discovered your blog and would love to win a new crockpot since mine's on the fritz!

Ooh...that crockpot is so much nicer than mine! I'm already a follower, so I guess this comment is my entry. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

Hi Jennie,
I used to have a crock-pot.Got it as a wedding gift. Didn'tuse it much so I gave it away. Would sure love that fancy one. Looks like it could also mix you a cocktail and having it waiting for you when you get home as well.
Hope your arm is feeling better read on Facebook it was getting tedious usingonly one arm and how much hugs hurt. That in and of itself is a pity.
Feel better and wish me luck!

Oh great timing! My crockpot is so sad at this point and hangin on by a thread and some crazy glue..
Sure, count me in! xoxo

Crock pots make for great meals, love chopping and dicing and then hours later something great appears on the table. Best of luck to one very happy winner. You go Jennie- get us reading, thinking and enjoying some of Tenafly's best of what needs to be said.
