by telling what you like to drink in your coffee mug in the comments section below.

Or Choose One of Four Ways to Enter

  1. Write a comment below telling what you like to drink in your coffee mug and why my coffee cups would make a good Mother's day gift. This is worth One Entry. You can only do this once per email address.
  2. Place the 125 X 125 Banner ad on your blog or web site and make sure it's on a Google searched page. This will contain a link to my Coffee Mugs sales page. See below for the image and link info This is worth 10 entries. Write a comment on this page with a link to the page on your blog that contains the banner ad.
  3. Write a blog post on your blog telling what you like to drink in your coffee mug and why my coffee cups would make a good Mother's day gift. This is worth 20 Entries. This must contain a link to my Coffee Mugs sales page, http://www.youcanlearnseries.com/Store/CoffeeCups.aspx, with the anchor tag text being something like "Coffee Mugs Make Great Mother's Day Gifts." Be sure and write a comment below telling me where the blog post is located with a link.
  4. Write a blog post on your blog telling others about this great contest. This must contain a link to this contest page, http://www.youcanlearnseries.com/Blog/200804Apr/Win-An-Easy-50-Dollars.aspx, with the anchor tag text being something like "Great Mother's Day Gifts Contest." This is worth 15 entries. Be sure and write a comment below telling me where the blog post is located with a link.

Feel free to choose one entry method or all four to increase your chances significantly.

Super Bonus - 256 Entrecard Credits For Your Blog Article

As a special bonus to those willing to write an article for this contest using steps 3 or 4 above, you will be rewarded with 256 Entrecard credits after I review the article post. You won't be able to advertise on the Big Boy's web sites or blogs, but it will help you get an ad or two. This is limited to the first 20 bloggers to write articles and tell me about it.

How is the Winner Chosen?

As entries are accummulated, I place the entries in a spreadsheet and then at the end of the contest I use Random.org to pick the 4 winners. You can enter using all four methods, but you can only use method one once for each email address. This means that commenting with the same comment over and over doesn't give you extra entries.

No Purchase is necessary and purchasing a coffee cup will not increase your chances to win. All cash payouts will be by PayPal. The contest ends on Monday, April 28, 2008 at 10PM Central Standard Time, which is Chicago Time. This will give me plenty of time to ship all prizes so you can enjoy them before Mother's day.

Substitution of Gifts

I am willing to substitute gifts where appropriate. If you aren't an Entrecard Member then I will send you $15 USD cash through PayPal instead of the 3,000 Entrecard credits. If you don't live in the United States or Canada, a cash prize of $15 will be paid through PayPal for the coffee cup 2nd place prize. If you feel these limitations prevent you from participating in this contest, then let me know so I can make it possible for everyone to participate.

Why Are You Running the Contest?

I decided that my coffee cups which are custom designed and commissioned art would make wonderful gifts for Mother's day. Mothers and Grandmothers throughout the world would love to receive one of these as gifts on their special day. What better way to say I Love You to that special person in your life than with one of these lovely coffee cups?

Now, no one is going to purchase these coffee mugs for Mother's day if no one knows about them. That's where you come in. By writing about your love of these coffee mugs and love of your Mother, you tell the world about these wonderful gifts.

I also know that my Technorati numbers will go up if you all put a link to my web site on your blog. And maybe Google will smile upon me a little bit, too. I am not going to hold my breath for that though.

Enter Now While You Are Thinking About It.

Okay, I think I gave you all the details. Take a moment right now and write a comment below. Then let that comment be the starter for a blog post. Look below for the image and script needed for the banner ad.

The Changing Library

Nobody is Reading Books at the Library

I went into the local community Library on Sunday. My wife and I were looking for some audio CDs, "books on Tape." We found some we liked. But, as I was wandering around the library I noticed something interesting. I didn't see anyone reading any hard bound, paper filled, books.

2014 Summer is Officially Over

Wet and Cool Summer was Perfect for Flower Gardens

This summer was unusually cool and wet. It was the first summer in the last 14 years where we didn't have to water our grass in the yard. There were a couple of weekends when we watered the trees. Our River Birch tree was a little dry and started to lose some leaves. A good watering solved that problem and made the tree happy.

A Blogging Milestone

I was doing some programming on my computer today and I looked at the date of some of my first blog entries on the You Can Learn Series Web Site. I was shocked to realize that I have been blogging on and off for 10 years.
