Happy Blogiversary to Me!

Blogging, Classics, Contemporary Fiction 37

Howdy Bookworms!

Today is a day of celebration. That’s right. One year ago today I published my very first blog post. It’s been a fabulous, fun journey and I’m SO GRATEFUL to you, my readers, for, well, reading my nonsense. Huzzah!

Because a birthday is nothing without presents, I’m doing a giveaway! I’ve had some tricks up my sleeve since BlogHer. While I was in the land of swag, I did not forget my faithful little bookworms! First things first. While at BlogHer I was afforded the opportunity to see a new movie called AustenlandI can’t tell you if it was any good or not, because due to things running behind schedule (cough cough Queen Latifah) I arrived once the film was already 20 minutes in. However! The ladies running the booth felt for my plight (they obviously had your best interest at heart as well.) They allowed me to take home this BEAUTIFUL t-shirt, for the dedicated Austenites among us.

It's a size large, and perfect for surfacing from lakes.

It’s a size large, and perfect for surfacing from lakes, ponds, and other domestic bodies of water.

But that’s not all! You’ll also win these kickass pins showing your undying adoration for Rainbow Rowell! Fangirl and Eleanor and Park could be emblazoned on your breast from here to eternity. I know, can hardly contain yourself at this point…


Seriously, how cool are those?! I also managed to snag y’all a copy of the super sweet Walking Dead novelization. It talks about that sneakiest of sneaks, the Governor. You know I can’t get enough zombie lore and gore!


You will also receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card. Oh you didn’t hear that? I said, YOU ALSO GET A $25 AMAZON GIFT CARD!!! And an official Words for Worms bookmark (I had too many printed, okay? You read. You need bookmarks. Don’t lie.)

So, how do you win this amazing prize package of awesomeness?!?! Be a US resident. I’m so very sorry to my super amazing international readers, but shipping, you know? Here’s how to enter:

1. “Like” Words for Worms on Facebook (if you already like me, FREE entry for you!) https://www.facebook.com/WordsForWorms

2. Follow me on Twitter! @KatieBelle1121 (Again, if you already follow, FREE ENTRY!) 

3. Share this contest with your Facebook friends! (Be sure to tag Words for Worms so I can see it!)

4. Tweet about the contest (Be sure to include my Twitter handle so I can count it!)

5. Leave an awesome comment on this blog telling me your favorite Words for Worms post! (I know, it’s completely self serving, but I’m curious, and there’s only so much that can be written on the evils of coleslaw.)

This can be YOURS! Along with $25 to spend at Amazon!!!

I will announce a winner on Monday, August 19th. Good luck!

FREE STUFF: Words for Worms Happiness Hullabaloo!

Blogging 61

Hello Bookworms!

Today is a very BIG DAY. 6 months ago today, I started up this insane little corner of the internet known as Words for Worms. It is my blog’s half birthday! You know what else? This is my CENTENNIAL post! That’s right, 100 posts of pure bookish ridiculousness now exist. I am SO GLAD I started blogging! The whole blogging community has been so cool and supportive. All you glorious bookworms have been AMAZING. Today, I LOVE EVERYTHING! In the spirit of gratitude, I’m hosting a giveaway. Free stuff, from me to you.

Words for Worms Happiness Hullabaloo Prize Package includes…

1. $15 Starbucks Gift Card (because I purchased spare gift cards during the holidays so I’d never be caught giftless… But I don’t go to Starbucks very often.)

2. $25 Amazon Gift Card. So you can buy books! (At least in theory. I’m not going to stalk your purchases or anything. Or am I?!)

3. A mysterious DOUBLE from my Mom’s book collection. (If you don’t know why this is significant, click here.)

4. A fake check written out for ELEVENTY BILLION DOLLARS. (It’s not a real number…yet. Of course, even if it becomes a real number it will still be a fake check, so. You know.)

5. Something with penguins on it! (Because I’m me! And PENGUINS!)


Despite the lack of diamonds and bacon, how excited are you right now? Now for the RULES. Don’t worry, there are only two.

Rule 1: Be over 18. I can’t be held responsible for what’s in my mother’s book collection. (Kidding, but really. Be an adult.)

Rule 2: Live in the US or Canada. I adore my international readers, really I do. I just can’t be shipping things to other continents. It’s expensive. And I don’t know how. Come to think of it, I don’t know how to ship to Canada either, but I’m willing to look stupid in a post office for YOU, my friends from the Great White North.

How can you enter to win this magical mystery giveaway? You will be entered for doing any or all of the following:

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me your opinions on coleslaw. (The correct opinion is that coleslaw is icky, but dissenting voices will not be penalized.)

2. Like my Facebook page!

3. Share this post with your Facebook friends!

4. Follow me on Twitter! @KatieBelle1121

5. Tweet this post!

You could theoretically get your name into this drawing 5 times! I will be tallying the entries and choosing a winner via a random number generator, because I’m fair and stuff. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, January 16th. Share, share, share! Win, win, win! Thank you all for being awesome!!!
