Our First Contest/Giveaway

McDonalds of Northeastern PA (@MCDNEPA on Twitter) has graciously donated some coupons to NEPA Blogs to give away to our loyal blog readers.  The coupons are for the McDonalds cool and delicious new summer drink...the Cherry Berry Chiller.  I decided to try our hand at doing a contest/giveway.  We have never done this before, so this is a first.  Bare with us!

After racking our brains for a few days, your friendly NEPA Blogs co-admins decided that we would create some clues for an online scavenger hunt of sorts....

All of the scavenger hunt clues have to do with NEPA Blogs.  There will be five (5) questions (revealed below) and the first three (3) participants that email the correct answers to all five (5) questions will receive five coupons for the Cherry Berry Chillers in their snail mailbox.  The coupons expire on 8/31/12.  If you play your cards right, you can have yummy treat on your way home from work every afternoon.
Here are the scavenger hunt questions.  I hope you have been paying attention (pssst, even if you haven't the answers can be found by looking around our blog a bit)!  Think you know the answers?  Email your responses to nepablogs@gmail.com 


1. When was the first post on NEPA Blogs?

2. What's the Twitter address for NEPA Blogs?

3. You can find NEPA Blogs at nepablogs.blogspot.com. What's the shortcut address for NEPA Blogs? (Hint: it's mentioned every Tuesday on PA Live!)

4. When was the first NEPA Blogs Blog of the Week on WBRE's PA Live!, and what was it?

5. In March of 2012, what local weekly published a cover story on NEPA Blogs and Blog Fest?

All winners will be notified via email and announced on the blog.  The contest will go on as long as it has to, until we have our three winners!

UPDATE 06/22/12:  We have our first winner!  Justin Vacula of the NEPA Freethought Society blog correctly guessed our five questions.  We still have 2 more sets of coupons to giveaway and you don't have to be a blogger to enter!  Get your responses in!
