Anyone who knows me knows I want to be a winner. Can’t help it. Wanting to be a winner makes me a dangerous person to bring to Las Vegas. Because, I have gathered, people who want to be winners leave Vegas with no winnings. (Because, of course, they use any winnings they do get to try to get *more* winnings. And this is not an effective winning strategy.)
But it is my strategy. And I still want to win. Which is why I feel like I found the coolest thing tonight: Rocks In My Dryer is having the Dog Days of Summer Bloggy Giveaway. Piles, and I mean PILES, of bloggers have signed on to give something to their readers out of the goodness of their hearts. They’re even paying for shipping. What wonderful people– both because they’re being incredibly nice, and because, whether they know it or not, they’ve given someone who desperately wants to be a winner the hope that she may actually win this time. And even if I don’t, I’ve checked out lots of blogs tonight and I’m pretty sure I’ve found some cool new ones to read.
