Pay it Forward

Who wants to play a game?

Thanks to Amanda at What We’re Eating, I am participating in Pay it Forward – The Blog Edition. Here’s how it works: I will send handmade gifts to the first three people who leave a comment and tell me they are interested in playing. In order to play, you must have your own blog (doesn’t have to be a food blog) and you must continue to ‘pay it forward’ by promising the same thing to your readers.

Now, as far as the handmade gifts go, I don’t know yet what they will be. I also don’t know when I’ll get them sent. You may not receive the gift tomorrow or next week, but I do promise that it will get to you within the next 365 days! Sound good? I think it sounds great!

Remember, I will be choosing the first three people who respond by leaving a comment on this blog post. The requirements are that you have your own blog and are willing to send out three of your own homemade gifts (whatever you want to make, no rules or limitations here).

I am willing to ship my gifts anywhere in the world, so everyone is eligible to participate regardless of what country you are blogging from! Just please make sure you leave a valid e-mail address so I can contact you for shipping information.

Can’t wait to hear from you!

    I’ll play! This sounds very cool!

    De-lurking here, Nicole. I love your recipes! Next on my list is to try the Lemon Sugar Cookies – but, and I write this next part with a little bit of a red face – I’m not positive on how to zest. Any tips for a novice?

    We don’t play blog games very often either, but this one sounds like a lot of fun. I read your blog just about every day and love your recipes (though I’m usually looking for pics of Smack initially :)) We’d love to play!

    Damn this paying job! I got here too late! If only my wife would make a lot more money so I could be a house husband so I could get out blog comments faster!

    Moe, Canadian Sadie and Kelly: I’ll be in touch soon. This should be a lot of fun!

    For those of you who have chosen to start the game on their own blogs even though they aren’t receiving a gift from me, I think that’s absolutely wonderful!

    Ooo, can’t believe I missed this!!! I would have loved this… but yeah, the probability of me paying it forward? I can’t even keep up with my own blog. Btw- I also loved the lemon cookies, and will make them again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This looks like a great idea! I have to read more, but I may try it too. I just need a little breather after NaBloPoMo. Congratulations! We did it! : )
