Former Glory: Contest!

Are you growing a bit weary of your blog's design? Do you want something fresh and absolutely you for summer, but don't want to dish out the big bucks for a custom design? Well, dear reader, you are in luck, as it just so happens that there is a quick and easy way for you to get a custom design just in time for summer.

Here's the deal. As HorseFeathers is just getting back on its feet, I'm relying on all you wonderful followers to get it back to its former glory. The goal is to get back up 100 followers (just 39 more!) in one week.
So I had this idea. I had posted a similar contest on the old HorseFeathers, and I decided, "why not do it again? It was fun, and the winner was very pleased with their prize."

Oho, you say, what's this about a prize?
Dear reader, you must be patient.

Here's how this will work. I will put names into a hat, and the name drawn out of the hat wins the prize. But you must do certain things to enter this contest.
{Keep in mind: in order to get the maximum amount of entries, you must have done all the things above. For example, you can't just post about the contest, you must also have my button and be a Follower. Make sense?}

If you....
              are a Follower of HorseFeathers, that earns you one entry. (1)
              have my blog button on your blog, that earns you another entry. (2)
              post about the contest/blog asking people to Follow, that earns you another entry. (3) Please: if you do this, tell people to say in their comment that you referred them {see below}. Also feel free to snag the banner at the end of the post.

If you...
             posted about my return before this contest was posted, that earns you one extra entry.
             have been identified as a referrer, that earns you one entry per person referred.

Please comment to tell me which things you have done (ex: "I followed, posted a button, posted about the contest, and posted about your return") so I can be sure to enter you accordingly.
Of course, your chances of being picked increase significantly with the increase of entries.

By now you are probably wondering why you should go to all this trouble. Hmm... because you love me? :D
Just kidding. As you might have guessed, the prize for being the winner of the drawing is a full, custom blog makeover and installation. That's a $35 value, and you get it for free!

{As a side note: As the majority of people wanted Robin Blogs back, that is my monthlong project. Don't worry — it will be up-and-running very soon.}

So what are you waiting for? Go! You only have one week. On Saturday morning, June 19, I will draw the winner out of a hat and post the results for all to see.
Good luck everyone!

  12. Hi Olive Tree,

    I just have a quick question. I just received a makeover for both of my blogs. I would still like to enter so the word can get around about your return. If I win, is it OK for me to hand over the makeover to a friend? :)


  13. Alexandra, that is completely fine. I probably should have said that before: everyone, if you win but like your blogs already, you can either save the makeover for later or gift it to a friend.

  14. I'd love to enter! Wildlife Angels needs a good makeover and you're just the person to do it Olive!

    Okay, here's my info:

    I posted your button on SunClan.

    (Sadly I didn't have time to post of your return, but in my new post I did. I know it doesn't count but I just thought you should know)
