GALLUP AND A GIVE AWAY ...




IT'S A RACE TOO CLOSE TO CALL ...


being immersed in polls and all ...
Here's my random voter question

asked in my best Gallup poll voice ...

AT YOUR DESK
has blogger taken a back seat to
facebook and 
pinterest?


... and now the GIVEAWAY part ...

my Vintage by Nina 
Christmas order is here
 and ready to ship
 sadly, it is sold out!
and at the distributor, too ...

I did however, save one back to give away ...
it's beautiful and you're going to want to join the fun!



Here's how it plays out

1. leave a comment answering the 'poll' question
2. leave a comment if you 'follow' this blog
3. leave a comment if you've 'liked' SCF on FB
4. leave a comment if you 'follow' on Pinterest
5. leave a comment if you're a new follower
6. leave a comment if you post this to sidebar or FB
7. international comments are welcome, please see disclaimer
~~~
multiple comments are to your advantage ...
more chances in the randomly generated
picked winner !
(were it that simple for a president)

it'll be a race too close to call ... 
but some one will win!

Giveaway closes at midnight
 on October 31st
~~~
please note
~ once notified,
the winner will have three days to respond via email
after that time passes, I will pick another winner
~ if an iternational winner is chosen
there will be a shipping charge
 due to the high cost of shipping overseas
thanks for understanding

let's play give away

As far as the poll question-no, blogger is still my go to for inspiration-although the others are close behind! Looks like a beautiful book-thank you for the chance to win!

Rebecca said...

Blogger first! (I know it's not considered as "quick" and easy for the host(ess), but I like the slow, deliberateness of it.

Rebecca said...

And YES! I "follow"!

stefanie said...

The Feathered Nest said...

Oh my dear, truthfully...I do think for now the instant gratification of both Pinterest and Facebook are winning out over the blogs ~ but there's no substitution in my book. I believe, different stroke for different folks and all of these websites reach a different audience, even overlapping. But when your business is totally web related, they ALL are a good thing!!! xxoo, Dawn

The Feathered Nest said...

I do follow your blog sweet Joy!!! xxoo, Dawn

The Feathered Nest said...

I also follow your SCF page on Facebook ~ :), Dawn

The Feathered Nest said...

UH-OH. I just found your Pinterest...and now follow you there too ~ looks like I'm going to peeking around your boards today, they look WONDERFUL!! xxoo, Dawn

Personally blogging is still #1 for me followed by maybe a twice weekly visit to FB and Pinterest when I feel like it.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I of course follow you!

Sandy said...

has blogger taken a back seat to Facebook and Pinterest?
I'm starting to think "Yes" it is, only
because so many people I speak to use
Pinterest now and never read the
blogs.. as for Facebook, I'm thinking
the same...
But I love the blogs first.
Thanks so much for the giveaway!
Sandy

Sandy said...

Yes, I follow your blog!

Susan said...

Oh what fun! I am dreaming of winning this amazing book!
As far as the poll, I do get a feeling blogs are taking a backseat to FB & pinterest although I hope that will change come the holiday/winter season when folks spend more time at their computers (and actually reading good content). :)

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Okay....I love blogging. I admit I don't get Face book -- business wise. I don't understand "likes" at all. I just started my business facebook page but just because I was told I needed to do it. :) And don't get me started on tweeting. :) Love pinterest exactly for what it is....a bulletin board of everything I like. yes, it's good for your business but blogging is my baby. :)

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

I have followed you forever friend. :)

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Kathi said...

tough question! still prefer to read blogs myself but I must say our little blog -which was not that well established when FB took off- has taken a back seat to the fast world of FB. not necessarily happy about that

Kathi said...

I am already a follower on pinterest!

Kathi said...

I also already liked you on FB through my etsy shop name allthingswhite.

Priscilla said...

I scroll through the blogs quickly on my Google Reader, stopping to read one if it looks interesting, and then go to Pinterest. I find it so useful for gathering ideas.

MMW said...

I am a new follower, like the greybrowness (is that a word?) of the sight...... It's calming, and with all our mailboxes packed full daily with campaign ads- we need calm and collected!

Would love the book, anytime the cover says "pick me up" its gonna be good!

Rusty Hinge said...

Judy in OKC said...

Blogs win in my book!

Judy in OKC said...

Pinterest is okay. I do pin on occasion. Not very active in that direction.

Judy in OKC said...

Not a big fan of Facebook. When I would not log in for a week or so, they would bombard me with emails and tell me that I had messages from people and found upon checking.....I did not! I don't appreciate their tactics.

acorn hollow said...

I still love blogger more. Not sure why.

acorn hollow said...

Me again!
To answer your question, I am a multi-tasker so I am blogging away each evening during the debates and the tv shows we love to watch.
I work every day so the evenings are chocked full of a hundred things I did not get to during the daylight hours!

Great question though!

I have not really used Pinterest as much as most people do. Slow to catch up I guess.

Henhurst Interiors said...

New follower - found you by chance - and thrilled you happen to be giving away a book I want!
All best,

Henhurst Interiors said...

'Liked' on SCF on FB - the 'home' roll call is a good way to see what's going on daily - but am sticking with my vote for Blogger.

Henhurst Interiors said...

And following SCF on Pinterest, which I am totally addicted to, but I can find what interests me pretty quickly, so Blogger stands as my most most time-consuming web guilty pleasure.

Carol said...

I so enjoy first and foremost, a lovely blog post. It's like sitting down to a letter from home. I get excited like I did as a child when we would get a new weekly reader on Friday at school. I can't wait to see what my favorite bloggers have posted for me,

Smiles,
Carol Casey

I'm already a faithful follower, and I must say in the best of company.
