Wine infused Guilt driven giveaway

YES.

I feel terrible for not posting everyday.  I feel awful that people take time out of there surfing/day to check my blog and find they have wasted their time.

Wanna know a secret?  I feel so guilty for not posting that I can barely bring myself to access teh interwebz at all.  Seriously, I barely even check my email anymore.  It's all because of this blarring icon at the top of my firefox tab, "the manicured manatee".  It floats there, above the task at hand, badgering me, stoning me with insults, "you don't post anymore, you're letting down your readers, you piece of crap look at all this polish waiting for your google friends to see, you shouldn't have cut your hair off"

So, in my wine saturated and guilty state, here is a new giveaway.  Guess how many polishes I have.  The closest without going over wins.  The first person to guess a number has dibs on that number. Post in the comments section, dont worry my comments are moderated but will still show up in the order they were posted. 

The prize isnt some GIANT FANTASTICAL MAGICAL  package.  It's just one pretty polish, a brand new bottle of Nfu_Oh 52.  This contest is open to everyone.  All though only two of ALL of my contest winners have been US shipments and NOT pricey international shipments, I haven't learned my lesson.


Contest ends tomorrow at 8PM EST.

Love, MM

  2. I'm glad you post, no matter how often! I enjoy reading your snarky little stories that go along with your polish posts.

    I'm going to guess 380!

  3. Oh, I need a ballpark figure....it could be anything!! I'm guessing 215!?!

  4. Don't worry about not posting! If we're fans, most likely we subscribe and get a notice of an update without even visiting, so it's no extra effort--just a happy day to see a new Manatee Mama post! Blogging should be fun, not a guilt-induced chore, and it's likely most of us will still be here whenever you feel like posting. We luffs you, MM!

    My guess is 444 polishes.

  6. Ooooh! Wow I have no idea...

    Um, 875?

  7. 263. I'm probably way off xD

    Please don't feel guilty about not posting often! We understand that you have a life beyond the internet! Any more than once a week is plenty. It's when bloggers cut down to posting once a month with no explanation that it gets frustrating.

  35. I'm saying 549, for absolutely no reason at all.

    No one here is expecting posts everyday. We all know that you have a life of your own, and you certainly aren't beholden to the needs of your readership. We're just glad to have you around...

    ...at least, I'm assuming. I probably shouldn't speak for all of ManateeNation. Sorry, y'all.

  36. I'm going to guess 274. I'm probably way low, but this is fun anyways!

    ReplyDelete
  37. 452. Very original idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Don't feel guilty at all! Like someone said earlier, true subscribers will either catch your new ones on an RSS feed or get a notification.

    I'll guess 625.
