The Big 1000 and a Contest

CONTEST CLOSED





This is actually post 999, but I figured I would go ahead and get things rolling.  First and foremost thanks to everyone who reads about my card exploits. The interaction is what makes blogging fun. I feel like I've gotten to know many of you without actually meeting in person.

For those who don't know the origins of this blog I'll go ahead and share a quick link here.  Long story short, my daughter was born very premature and spent months in the hospital. When she finally came home she was on oxygen for 7 months. During this time my wife and I had to stay up all hours of the night to make sure she didn't pull the oxygen from her nose.  This created a lot of downtime in the middle of the night.  In that time I started the blog.  She has grown up a lot!

Now for the contest.  I'm only going to pick one winner, but it will have a BIG prize.  Like all my other contests I'll cater to your collection. I promise it will be awesome. To enter all you need to do is comment below. No need to promote or blog pimp. Just one entry per person.  I'll pick a winner once the comments stop coming in.

Thanks for making the last 999 posts so much fun!

  4. Congrats on the the big milestone and keep up the great work on the blog. I know how scary it can be to have a child who needs to be looked after in the NICU right after they're born.

  39. I read the post about you daughter yesterday and had no capacity left to think about blogs or baseball cards. It is beyond my ability to express how happy I am that she's thriving.

    I actually forgot all about your contest, but stopping by BWTP is part of my daily ritual. Congrats on the pending thousandth; please throw my name into the contest.

    Richard.
