A New Forum and ONE MOTHER OF A GIVEAWAY!



Alright my friends. You have been promised a YLU forum for a long time. My hubby has been slavin' away on it.

AND NOW IT IS DONE!

We couldn't be more excited! So, to get you all excited we are doing a HUGE giveaway! I mean HUGE! Just in time for Christmas!
 
One lucky winner will receive a $100 VISA GIFTCARD. How sweet is that?! VISA! That means you can use it ANYWHERE! Is there anything better?! Just before Christmas! So great!

Another lucky winner will receive a $35 VISA GIFTCARD. Still SUPER cool! Let me break it down.....

In order for this forum to be a success it will require YOU! This is where YourLifeUncommon becomes a true network. Each post will have it's own discussion forum. A place where all of you can leave comments, put in your 2 cents, ask questions, whatever. But that is just scratching the surface!

YLU's new forum is in and of itself a sort of social network. You can upload pictures. Start threads on how to's for a craft, recipe, whatever! The sky is the limit! You can form groups, post items you want to sell, post for items you are in need of, advertise your own blog, whatever you want! Isn't that fun?! There can be craft threads and recipe threads, inspiration threads and fitness threads...whatever you can think of, whatever you are interested in....HERE is finally a place where you can discuss it all.

Now, I will be honest, I have never really been involved in a forum. My hubby has. He has helped me see the potential for this and I am absolutely excited! If you are not familiar with how things work in a forum, please check it out. Believe me, I am new to it also, but I will say that my hubby has done a fabulous job with step by steps and there is always the "FAQ" link. That will answer any question you can come up with!

SO LET ME TELL YOU HOW TO WIN.....

For the $100 VISA GIFTCARD there are 3 ways to enter...Of course we would love you to enter all 3 ways!

1. Click on the "YLU FORUM" link in tool bar at the top of this page. Click on "Register" in the upper left hand portion of the forum and register yourself as a userAFTER YOU REGISTER COME BACK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT. THIS COMMENT WILL COUNT AS ENTRY #1.
(Be sure to click on "User CP" to personalize your profile!)

2. Once you are registered for the forum make sure that you come back to YourLifeUncommon.com and  become a "FOLLOWER" by clicking on "FOLLOW" in the left hand column of the blog. Then LEAVE A COMMENT TELLING ME YOU ARE A REGISTERED FOLLOWER. THIS COMMENT WILL COUNT AS ANOTHER ENTRY.
(If you are already a follower, you can still get your 2nd entry by leaving a comment to  let me know that you are registered on the forum AND already a follower.)

3.Introduce Yourself on the Forum. Click on the link above to the forum. While Logged in to the forum, click on "INTRODUCTIONS". Be sure to follow Ryan's short instructions. They are really helpful. Your introduction can be as long or short as you would like. It's just a way for us to get to know each other a little better. ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE INTRODUCTION, COME BACK TO THIS    POST AND LEAVE A COMMENT STATING THAT YOU HAVE INTRODUCED YOURSELF. THIS WILL COUNT AS ANOTHER ENTRY.


FOR THE $35 VISA GIFTCARD.....

This one is all about referrals! Tweet, Facebook, blog, email...whatever you want to spread the word.

After you have registered and have a user name for the forum GET ON THE HORN. Spread the word about the forum. Provide a link to this post to all of your friends so they can enter too.

As your friends register, there is a space at the bottom of each registration that asks for the person that referred them to the forum. This is where they will enter your user name, so be sure to give it to them and stress the importance of this part.

The person with the most referrals will win the $35 VISA GIFT CARD! The more people that sign up because you sent them our way, the more chances you have to win. Be sure to stress how important it is to your friends that they put your exact newly created forum USERNAME in the referral box. When they follow the steps above AND they spread the word, they are also entered for both cards! NIFTY RIGHT?!

(Please do not leave a comment stating that you have spread the word. This prize will be given away based on referrals submitted through the forum alone. If you would like updates on your standings, please email me at yourlifeuncommon@gmail.com to request an update.)

Get going! 2 of you are going to be VERY happy people, very soon! :)

Thank you all SO much for helping us make YLU such a success and for helping us get the word out about the forum! We couldn't do it without you!

VISA GIFTCARD GIVEAWAY WILL END AT MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2010. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2010

GOOD LUCK!

Now, stay tuned because tomorrow we are really going to open a can of worms! Tomorrow is all about having "THE TALK" with our kids. When? How? What to say? All will be covered in this two part post!
Then the discussion will be open and ready to begin on the forum!

And I hope to win $135 bucks. But even without the incentive the forum is a cool idea!

Would it be possible for someone to win both prizes? I suppose the chances would be pretty slim. Haha.

Just looking at the other comments and they have an email address listed. Not sure if that's required, but I'll add it just in case: mcheney1@juno.com

Also not sure if each "way to enter" needs a separate comment, but I combined the registering and introducing myself in the same comment. Sorry to keep buggin' ya!
