Home » Contests » Samsung Notebook Series 9: “Thank You Contest”
Mar
19

On Monday March 18th, I reached 5,000 followers on Twitter. This is a big deal for me. Really. Therefore, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who reads my blog via facebook or twitter or email. I started my blog in October 2010 and it’s been an incredible journey. In fact Samsung saw my passion for blogging  (and my zest for life ) and selected me and a handful of others to attend an event last year that was truly inspirational.

I was sincerely touched that Samsung had reached out to me. They even offered me a Samsung Notebook Series 9  to give away to one of my readers!! Guess what? The time has come to say thank you and run this “thank you contest”.

Contest Rules

The contest will be open to anyone in Canada and will run from March 19 and will end at noon on April 2nd.  (which is a great way to celebrate my birthday – with gratitude). The winner will have another 7 days to contact me via email, otherwise I will select another winner. I will use www.random.org to select the winner.

All you have to do is answer the following question:  How many computers are in your household? Just leave a comment on my blog!!

Wishing everyone the best of luck and once again….THANK YOU for supporting @momwhoruns

    Vicky,
    Knowing you for a few years, you truly do have a zest for life! Happy Birthday. We have 3 computers in our home. An iMac and 2 laptops.

  10. March 20th, 2013 at 09:53 | #11

    Congrats Vicky! You’ve worked so hard to build your online profile and you deserve those 5,000 followers : )

    I have 1 laptop (which is dying and is ready to be replaced) and a Blackberry Playbook in my house. My husband and I both have laptops for work but I don’t count those as “home computers”.

    Happy Macaron Day : ) -Sandy @savvari

  11. March 20th, 2013 at 10:14 | #12

    We have an iPad and an Acer laptop, and a Dell desktop. Neither of which belong to me. My Toshiba dates back to my university days and is ancient. Please hook me up with a new (updated) laptop so I can show my face in a coffee shop without hoarding around my brick of a laptop!

    Hey Vicky, I saw you reached 5000 followers and that’s so exciting!!! Congrats :) :) Knowing your personal story is quite inspirational, especially to someone in the social industry as myself :)

    Anyway, I’ve got 4 computers in my household but they are ALL personal laptops!! Just to let you in on some background info, I was the brat who took my moms MacBook Pro in exchange for my older Macbook a few years ago and it recently suffered a case of ‘dead battery.’ I totally feel bad and want to give my mom her Pro back but I’ll need something to replace it with!! ANYWAY so I really hope I win this Samsung Notebook!!

    Keep in touch xox – Sonia

    Well done! Your hard work and perseverance has enriched so many lives. In a family of 5 we have 3 computers – not one of them is mine. Kids have laptops and hubby has desktop. Hard to work my home business on my cell phone :(

    Yes, sadly my computer has died – I think it just knew I was deserving of a new computer – hopefully from you!

    Again, way to go!

    Great contest!
    We have two computers. A big homemade deal that sounds like a jet taking off, and a laptop that gets so hot that the liquid in the screen boils and permanently bubbles. It ain’t pretty. I hope we win!

  55. Mark
    March 22nd, 2013 at 00:40 | #56

    We have 2. An older metal box affectionately known as Earl, and a laptop that heats up so much that the gel in the screen has started to bubble. Not as glamorous as the Samsung, but they do work…barely…… Hopefully we win!
    Thanks for the chance and congrats on the milestone!
