I want to do something special and interactive to celebrate my blogiversary with my readers, and what could be more special and interactive than a giveaway? And what better prize - and nod to Lumpy, the monkey who started it all - than a handmade sock monkey?
However, it would be hard for me to send an innocent monkey into a stranger's home. Who knows what dangers may await? Would there be love and companionship or would there be a short life as a canine's chew toy?
So, because it's my blog and I make the rules, there will be no random number generator or pulling names from a hat. No, this is a good old fashioned give-it-your-best contest.
So here are the rules:
This made by me monkey is awaiting both a name and a new home. If you would like to provide that home, tell me what name you would bestow. Please present any reasons or arguments on why your name is the best. You are free to say anything* about your home or family that you think would influence the judges (my family), but the name is most important.
The winner will be announced on Friday, June 18th - my first blogiversary! You may enter by commenting here or by email, anytime between now and Thursday the 17th.
*Truth is encouraged, yet highly embellished storytelling will not be penalized.
