A Sort of Blog Hop & Give Away!

This is my first "sort of" Blog-Hop and it's for my friend, Robert Brault. Please join in to have a chance at winning one of the brand new 2012 Calendars or a Set of 12 Note Cards. (And if you don't win here, you can purchase them at very reasonable prices!)

1)  Visit Robert Brault's blog and read some of his fabulous thoughts and quotes. Don't just read the first page, there are months and months of archives....all full of gems!

2) Then add your blog in Mr. Linky,

3) Post something on your blog about Robert, or his quotes, which one(s) you like the best, etc.
   
     ** This is not a typical Blog Hop where people are expected to go around and comment on everyone else's. Just write about one of Robert's sayings/quotes on your own blog, and then add your blog in the Linky, and then you are included in the drawing. **



On November 19th, one lucky winner (chosen by random drawing) will receive either Robert's calendar or one of the note card sets. What a neat gift for just reading some inspirational or humorous quotes that will enrich your lives! This Give-Away is available to everyone no matter where you live!
*Or buy some as Christmas gifts for those special people in your lives.

"Looking back, you realize that a very special person passed briefly through your life -- and that person was you. It is not too late to become that person again. "  -- Robert BraultOn November

  4. Ooh, yes, I am definitely going to link in! I have to wait until Sunday because I just posted something for a sponsor on my site. I got one of Robert's calendars and love it! Of course if I won another I wouldn't complain because I can give it as a gift. Braultize the world! :)

  6. I wanted to let you know that I am not going to participate in this. I have decided to take a break from my Fill My Cup with Beauty blog and work only on my movie blog. The only things I am posting on there are movie reviews.

    Thank you for inviting me, though!

    I hope you are doing well. I'm doing what I can to deal with the cold, wind, and dreariness, and I think by focusing on really working on my movie blog, I will be okay. Time will tell, but I seem to be doing very well right now.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Love,
    Patti

  7. Hi Randi! Thanks for joining! And hey, since you already have a calendar, you could choose the note cards. Giving a gift is a wonderful idea, too, though! And, I LOVE your new word: "Braultize" the world! Awesome! :)

  8. Hi September Mom! Thanks, I'm glad you like the idea!

    Hey Patti! I totally understand. You take care of yourself first. If mama ain't happy, then nobody's happy! ;)

  11. I believe Robert Brault is one of the finest writers on the scene today. In all my life I've never seen anyone who could so consistently pack such meaning (serious, hilarious, reverent, irreverent and the gamut) into so few words. He really amazes me at times, or amuses me equally frequently. If you admire really clever quotations, and thought-provoking writing you cannot do better. If you have a friend who's in publishing, editing, agenting, do them and the rest of the world a favor. Tell them they should take a close look at Bob's body of work. donkimrey P.S. Already have my calendar. And I really like your work. I'll be back. donkimrey

  12. Thanks for "introducing me" to Robert Brault! I love so many of his quotes and did not know they belonged to him :) I am now a follower and I know I will spend tons of time there. Might even buy some calendars for gifts if I can fit them into my ever tightening budget :/

  18. Well, I put my link on Mr. Linky, but it doesn't show up. Hmmm. What the heck?

    So, I tried to enter it again, but Mr. Linky tells me that my blog is already linked up. Then why can't I see it?!

    Hopefully it will show up eventually. If not, anyone reading this can head over and check out my post at
