As the title of this post suggests, there is another chance for you to win your own copy of WordPress For Dummies, autographed by yours truly. This one is easy – Darren over at ProBlogger is sponsoring a WordPress For Dummies Giveaway and it’s SO easy.. all you have to do is leave a comment on his blog. That’s it! He’s giving one copy away to one commenter every day this week. The more comments you leave – the greater your chances of winning as each comment is considered an ‘entry’. I’ve been reading Darren since almost the very beginning and his entire site is a really super resource for blogging: resources, monetizing, how-to and overall great information about everything blog. If you have not subscribed to his RSS feed by now – now would be a great time to do it. ProBlogger.net is a MUST read for any blogger.
I have to say, I’m really quite tickled with how well my book, WordPress For Dummies, has been moving off the shelves and out of the warehouses at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and other online retailers. It has been #1 in the Blogging & Books category on Amazon for the last couple weeks – and still going strong!
I just want to take this opportunity to thank those who have purchased the book and sent in emails on how much they’ve enjoyed it and the ways in which it has helped them along their way with WordPress. I also would like to thank those of you who have taken the time to write a review on Amazon.com – every little bit helps spread the word about this helpful WordPress resource, so if you have a moment and are inspired to write a review at Amazon.com, I would be a grateful author!
In my own giveaway – I sent several copies to bloggers in the Philippines. I shipped those copies out on 11/15 and started getting a little concerned that the copies had not arrived yet. Though, I just heard today that at least one of those copies arrived safe and sound to Nika’s home after *almost* a month – – I was very relieved to hear it! Hoping this means that the rest of the Philippine-bound copies will start making their way towards their final destination very soon, as well!
I also shipped out Lorna Doone Brewer’s autographed copy that she won in Char’s giveaway on Casual Keystrokes right before Thanksgiving. Is it just me, or does Lorna Doone Brewer’s name make you hungry for shortbread cookies, too? heh.
