Oh my goodness, it's nearly that time again! March 21st, the first day of Spring... My birthday!
This can only mean one thing: a grossly out-of-proportion celebration of birthday awesomes. Why? Because, as I say every year, any excuse for a bit of fun. In the past we've had mini contests and comment parties but this year I thought we'd go one better and have both. Over three weeks. Just because.
Now, if you're a fairly new watcher of mine you might be wondering just why exactly you should be excited about my birthday. The simple answer is that you shouldn't. It's not about me, or even my birthday, it is just an excuse to have a 'party' of sorts. Life can be pretty dull or hard sometimes and we don't always have chance in real life to have a party or a night out when we need one. This is just my annual attempt to try and create that party atmosphere and spread a little happiness around. So we have contests and point giveaways and I encourage you to leave silly and random comments or Muro drawings for people to read and look at. Simply for the fun of it.
Because I want to do a little more this year to make up for the fact I haven't held any contests in recent months, we're having three week-long contests that each could earn you one months premium membership. All of the contests are very simple to enter and require little effort so more people can have the chance to take part. On top of that I'll be giving away 28 lots of 10 points over the three weeks and perhaps even a print or two. For now though, let's take a look at the three main contests.e v e n t s . l i s t i n g
