Not only do I have Flip-Pal coupons for you this week, I have a contest for you. But before I get into the details of that, I'd like to mention that I was 1 of 4 winners in the 1940 US Census Blog Ambassador contest last week. YES! That's right. I won a $50 Amazon Gift Card.
Along with thanking, of course, the 1940 US Census Project Sponsors, I'd like to also thank one other person.
Willie Nelson. Without him, I still could have written last week's blog post about the 1940 US Census and transportation, On the Road Again, but it would've lacked a certain je ne sais quoi. Don't ya think? ;)
That's a silly question, right? Duh. Of course, you'd like to be a winner.
Well, this is the thing. The 1940 US Census Project has this really cool contest with outstanding prizes. How outstanding are they? Well, I dunno. Do you like gift cards? Visa Gift Cards? Yeah. They're giving away to one lucky and randomly chosen entrant a $100 Visa Gift Card. And to 2 lucky and randomly chosen entrants, they're giving each one a $50 Visa Gift Card.
[Told you. OUTSTANDING.]
What do you have to do to enter? Just 4 things:
- Register at the 1940 US Census Project Blog's Games and Prizes Page.
- Download the indexing software to your computer.
- Complete a 1940 U.S. Census simulation batch before 11:59pm MT March 30, 2012.
- To complete a practice batch, launch the indexing application from your desktop and log in. Click “Download Batch” and look for *SIMULATION* 1940 U.S. Census.
[For more information, check out the 1940 US Census Project contest post, Weekly Contest - Week of March 19th.]
That's it. And the winning continues because the more people we can get indexing the 1940 US Census when it comes out, the faster we can all be back on the road again finding our ancestors in it. See? Win-Win.
So. Don't wait. Enter the contest now! Practice, practice, practice. Do you realize how many Willie Nelson songs [or whatever] you could buy with a $50 or a $100 Visa Gift Card?
Yeah. *nods head once* THAT'S what I'm talking about. ;)
Note: I am a 1940 US Census Blog Ambassador, and this blog post [along with a whole list of other things I've gotta do] enters me into another Blog Ambassador Contest this week for an Amazon Kindle Fire. Like last week's contest, to win this week's contest would make me one very happy mom. Why? Because both my kids were born in April, and their birthdays are next month. And? They've both asked for tablets. Yeah. So. This would help me out a great deal. You know what else would help me [and a whole lot of other people] out a great deal? If you joined us with the indexing of the 1940 US Census. So, yes, I wrote this blog post because I am a 1940 US Census Blog Ambassador. And I wrote it because I'd like to be able to give that Amazon Kindle Fire to one of my kids for their birthday without having to buy it. But? I also wrote it because I think it'd be nice to get the index up as fast as possible so everyone can start researching it that much quicker. =)
