Last Contest of 2012!

Filed under: Contest,Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

I thought maybe we could end 2012 with a bit of a retrospective, but I wanted to do a bit of a giveback, as well, so I’ve decided to make it a contest.

How to enter:

Simply select your favorite post from My Real Life since the very first post was published.

Then, share a link to that post, explain why it was your favorite and ask your friends and family to come and check it out.

In the comments below, tell me which post you shared, why you picked that post and tell us how you shared it (Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.)

If you share on Facebook, that’s one entry.  Share on Twitter as well, you get two!  (My Twitter hashtag is @AmyBozza ) Share through email or some other method and you are up to three entries!  So, if you are a Techy-Techerson, you have the possibility of three entries in the contest.  Don’t fret, if you aren’t, because you only need one entry to win.  Winners will be chosen by a random drawing, which we will video tape and post.

It’s fine with me if you tell your friends you are sharing the link in order to win a contest, as long as you do the rest, as well.

This contest does a few things for me.

1.  Increases my publicity.  Not only will your friends and family, hopefully, come check out the blog, maybe they’ll stay awhile and decide to enter their own favorite post!

2.  Tells me which types of posts my readers enjoy the most.  If everyone’s favorite posts are within the same category, perhaps I’ll beef up that category in the new year.

3.  Allows me to give you, yet another, prize.

The winner of this contest will receive a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card.

In order to make sure the winner can possibly re-gift the gift card for Christmas (because let’s be real…you know it’s what you were thinking) the contest will end at midnight on Wednesday, December 19th and the winner will be announced on Thursday December 20th.

So, go take some time and browse through the archives…find your favorite post, and share away!

Thanks for playing!


  1. It’s impossible to pick one. They are all great. Otherwise we wouldn’t come back, regularly.

    • 🙂 Thank you! 🙂 I’d be fine with just a share of the blog, in general, as well. 🙂

    The only pic ever of Tiny, awake, without his ham face. The face which will eventually become his, ‘Oh, crap! I am so busted!’ face. :). That’s my favorite.

    And hearing that Neal Patrick Harris read your blog once.

    I don’t typically share because I am not sure who you wish to have as your audience. Same reason I don’t use my real email acct. when I comment (no 2 in my address) because I don’t want to be forced by WordPress to sign in when I want to post….which makes my blog open for others. I write it so one day, my kids will have better insights into who the woman they knew as ‘Mom” really was.

    Just my mom and I fooling around with a camera. That sounds like the best blog post ever…

  8. Hands down, my favorite post is one from a few years ago, about Julia, on her birthday. Although I know we want to wait a few years before kids, this post stirs my heart….I hope one day to feel exactly those feelings to understand how precious children are to a parent.
