My First Giveaway!!

The time has come to host my first giveaway! (something about that phrase makes me want to say: "Baby's First Giveaway") As I've blogged about before, I am a serial giveaway "enterer," so I am all too familiar with the ins and outs and lengths that people will go through to enter said giveaways.

Lately I've entered contests to win an I-Pod, some jewelry, designer clothes, a Slanket, paper towels, etc. etc. etc. (everything just short of a ShamWow!) but who needs any of those cool things when you can win your very own economy sized container of UTZ Cheese balls** dimensions: (9" x 13" x 7-1/2") pictured here (purchased yesterday so it is guaranteed fresh) And I'm going to make it very easy to enter, simply:

Leave a comment on this blog post.

But, just to make it more fun and for me to feel like a bigtime giveway blogger, for extra entries, you may:

1. Tweet about the giveaway
2. Click on the little green button in the right margin to fave my blog on Technorati
3. Subscribe to my blog
4. StumbleUpon, Kirtsy or Digg any blog post that you've particularly enjoyed (assuming you can find one)
5. "Follow" my blog on Blogger
6. Blog about the giveaway

*Please leave a separate comment for each of the above to let me know that you have completed the step*

**This giveaway comes with one small teeny, tiny caveat: That if you are the winner, you agree to send me a photo of you and the UTZ Cheese balls preferably in a distinct location so that I may post it to my blog :-)

If I do not get any entries, I will sit down with my UTZ Cheese balls in the comfort of my living room (with juggling props whizzing in front of the tv screen) and proceed to gorge on them in all of my orange fingered glory! All will not be lost ;-)

Please be sure to leave me a way to contact you. The winner will be announced on February 28th, so hurry!! You'll be UTZ-erly glad you did :D

I am so not doing any of the preferred entry methods, as a picture of you with orange cheese dust on your keybord would be ironic.

As a PS, can you imagine the international postage to ship that container to the Phillipines or Croatia?

Stimey said...

Oh dear. I can't believe I'm doing this. I would like to enter your horrible cheese ball giveaway because they would make my children SOOOOOOOOO happy.

And I would not only take a photo of the cheeseballs in Stimeyland, but I would also take photos of the cheesy fingerprints all over my house.

Crazy Raincloud said...

I want!! just dont know how fresh they would be coming to australia? i'll give you a photo and cheesy hands.. should they be edible when they get here :D

Karen said...

Oh, if only I weren't watching my weight and carrying around that extra pound I gained last week...

Janna Bee said...

Okay, since I just started following you, I think that should count right? I also Faved your blog on technorati.

Natalie said...

I've never wanted anything as much as I want those cheese balls. My daughter is visiting (the one you remind me of) and when she saw your contest said "I love her".

She got her dad Grandma UTZ this past Christmas and had to order them from the company. Fried in lard potato chips are apparently too high class for Vermont.

Lucy said...

I love those darn Cheeseballs, once I start eating those things I make myself sick.
Now, I already follow you on my blog. I'm not all that savy on the internet, so I will have to try those other suggestions!!

Blue State Cowgirl said...

I will follow all your instructions only if you promise NOT to send me any Cheez Balls. I, too, want pictures of you in all your orange dusted glory after an UTZ orgy.

Dave @ Home School Dad said...

I want to win. Please check if the cheeseballs have riboflavin. It's not a dealbreaker if they don't but riboflavin is the food of the gods!

By the way I am in the midst of my first giveaway at home school dad. Just look at he Crazy Dave's Give-a-ways section in the upper right hand corner of my site.

Stacy said...

I love this contest!

Even if I don't win maybe I'll buy myself an economy-sized barrel just so that I can take a photo for you in a scenic location :)

merrymishaps said...

I've added your feed to my Google Reader, too. Because I need a snack.

Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

My kids will go nuts for those cheesy balls of goodness. :))) CONGRATS ON YOUR FIRST GIVEAWAY!!

kidletsmum said...

I can't see any way around entering this contest. It is so silly and so goofy and so much fun that I just have to get my name in the running. I want to win cheese balls!
And I'm going to subscribe to your blog because if you give away cheese balls, you are surely going to give me more good morning laughs.

BIBI said...

I so want to enter. I never win at these contests, but I am thinking positive.

I will be so happy to send a photo of myself with the cheese balls in BIBI's world. So enter me!

Okay forget that I am on a diet, I'll eat them anyway!

ppompi said...

Hi Carma!

I favorited you on Technocrati (had to register) though I'm new to the blog worlds (this is the only one I read!) I don't really want the cheese balls (I like to think I'm cheesy enough already) though they would make a nice popcorn alternative for the Sunday meetings.

Sarah said...

You're cracking me up! Oh Cheez balls. Please be mine. :)

Liz at Buffalo said...

Hi! I Digged and I also Technoratied. And now I commented. I don't really like cheeseballs, but 100% of my friends and family do. So I would be A HERO.

Carolyn G said...

Okay this is one of the best giveaways I have seen. I am a cheese ball fiend so I rather this than something else!!

Carolyn G said...

I follow

Tisa said...

PunkyBean said...

I so do want to enter your give-away! I won one today, so very excited to enter another!!!! Hook a sista up!

Liz at Buffalo said...

I forgot to read the rules. I just noticed the part about the winner photographing the cheeseballs in a distinctive location. I have an idea, in case I'm the winner. These things come in a barrel, right? I could totally do a 'going over Niagara Falls in a barrel' montage with that. Wow. (Course, then I wouldn't get to eat them, but actually that's preferable NO OFFENSE.)

kidletsmum said...

Too many people are entering! However will I win? Can I get an extra entry by reminding you that I live in TURKEY so can photograph the cheeseballs in some very exotic and exciting locations? Can I?

nopatternrequired said...

I would love to enter! Man, I would do anything for those cheeseballs. Well, almost anything.

I have a great location for the photographing in MI. You can count on me!

LCNeill said...

mmmm love those cheesy.....yes....balls and/or puffs too!

Susan said...

Would loved to enter. Thanks.

Oh, wow, after only ever seeing Cheezeballs in the wild in herds, http://twitpic.com/11pef the prospect of having my own solo vat is vastly amusing. If chosen, I can feature the prop in 1) an improv comedy show production of Indyprov , 2) In the audience at a drag queen show at Talbott street nightclub or 3) somewhere geographically notable in Indianapolis, if those first two are too tame for you and you just have to have a pic of the circle city.
