But how did I end up in the “international” list for the prize drawing???
I signed up for last week’s blog party, and like nearly 1000 other bloggers eagerly scanned the list of cool prizes being offered to partygoers. As many of them did, I dreamed up a “wish list” of my absolute favorites, in case I was drawn. I also mentioned I was in Alaska.

Here’s a quick reference chart (though it’s largely irrelevant I almost included it as a “public service announcement” in my intro post):
AK is not Arkansas, its Alaska
AR is not Arizona, its Arkansas
AZ is Arizona.
We’re all America, USPS ships to all three, and while mail can take a little longer to get up here, it is not much more expensive.

I hope in the future being non-contiguous won’t exclude the 49th state from the awesome prizes offered for American bloggers. (Another idea would be letting small, mailable things like gift-cards be an option for us “INTL” folk)
I don’t mean it in a nasty way. It’s always fun to hear you’ve won something, but this is a little like having someone offer to buy you their favorite painting…
Anyway, had a lovely time cruising new sites during the party, I think I picked up at least two new reads.
