Will the real Kevin Bacon please stand up?!

Hola! If you are new to the blog, thanks so much for stopping by! Odds are you were bullied into it by one of your friends…I challenged my subscribers to a little friendly referral game in the hopes that their peer pressure would bring you here. Glad to see it worked.

Before you leave, make sure you hit the comment button and let me know who referred you. Everyone is competing to win a VERY BIG, *special* prize, but it’s going to take the most referrals to get it…so help a sista’ out (or a brotha, in case one of my male subscribers sent you!)

In the meantime, I hope you’ll look around & read a few posts! Let me recommend a few of my favs to you…click on the calendar to read the post!

*June 1 – Why a Blog? (scroll all the way down)

*June 9 – Poop in My Purse (gross, but popular)

*June 16 – Won’t you be my neighbor?! (a MUST read for anyone new to the blog!)

*June 19 – Bringin’ Home the Bacon (just fun!)

*June 24 – Did I shave my legs for this?! (let’s just get some personal information right out there in the open…)

*June 30 – I’m a Big Fat Scaredy Cat

+ 11 fun days of July posts…from funny to frustrated to on fire for the Lord!

If you like what you read (and hopefully you do!) then I’d love for you to subscribe! I’ll even give whomever referred you a bonus point for your subscription! Just hit the subscribe widget to the right of the screen.

Oh, and why the Kevin Bacon title? It’s silly really, but I’m glad you asked! I’m hoping that by 6 degrees of separation he’ll have a friend send him to this site, in which case they will win a bacon-themed gift basket, and I will probably fall off the couch from shock. Then I’ll brag to everyone that I know.

And if Kevin were to go so far as to subscribe, I would probably send all of my subscribers one of those cans of bacon that I mentioned once…because surely that would mean the world was about to end. 😛

KEEP CALM & COME BACK FOR MORE!

Challenge: Six Degrees of Separation

Six degrees of separation refers to the idea that everyone is on average approximately six steps away from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of, “a friend of a friend” statements can be made, on average, to connect any two people in six steps or fewer. (Wikipedia)

Interesting idea right?!

Once Chris and I met, we were able to connect ourselves within one degree of separation…he was dating a girl I knew from college (while I knew her!)

It’s that whole “small world” idea…I’m sure we can all think of a time when we were out of town and randomly met “a friend of a friend.” Or even better (as long as it’s not happening to you) when someone goes on a date, only to realize later that they are somehow related to the other person. (I actually heard a true story about that not long ago…and if YOU have a story about that I would love to hear it. Really!)

So today I’ve decided to extend a little “six degrees of separation” challenge to you guys.

I’m really trying to make a go of this blog thing, so I’ve been doing a little research about how to make that happen. Since word-of-mouth can be a great way to bring more visitors to the site, and I’ve got some pretty mouthy subscribers (and I mean that in the nicest way possible…honestly!) I decided to come up with a contest.

Here’s the gameplan:

1) You (the reader) tell your friends about the site…via e-mail, facebook, etc.

2) Ask them to leave a comment saying that you referred them

3) The person with the most referrals wins a prize!

Yay! See where the six degrees of separation come in? If all 15 of my subscribers told only 6 people just imagine the spider-web of connections that would be made…talk about networking!

And since I hopefully pricked your ears by dangling the “prize” carrot in front of you, I’ll go ahead and reveal what you’ll win. Whoever has the most referrals (with a minimum of 6…think 6 degrees of separation!) gets to choose a book from my post a few days ago and I’ll have Amazon ship it right to ya! Oohhh, and I’d like to add a new one to the list…”Heaven is For Real” by Todd Burpo. It is just incredible. Maybe I’ll dedicate a whole post to it later.

But back to the contest. There is one more thing you should know…something to up the stakes a little. One name is synonymous with 6 degrees of separation…Kevin Bacon. (Seriously. Google it.) SO, if anyone can use their power of 6 to get Kevin Bacon to comment on my blog, you will receive an entire bacon-themed gift basket in the mail. (*See “Brining Home the Bacon” post.) Impossible? Nah. Im-probable? Yeah I’ll give ya that. But there’s no harm in having a little fun with this.

On your mark…get set…Go! Contest will end at 12 p.m. tomorrow. I’ve included a few one-liners you can copy & paste into your facebook status, as well as the link to the site. Thanks for your help, hope you have fun with this! (And I hope it works…at least throw me a few bones and respond in some way. Pretty please?!)
