Another Drawing for a Drawing!


UPDATE:  WE HAVE A WINNER!
Since Yvonne already has drawings and her comment was purely congratulatory in nature (thanks Yvonne!), I took her comment out and and went with 74.  And, the winner is:

BUT. Remember how I said there was a second prize?  Yup!  It's a very limited-edition tank.  Only 12 were made.  The cut hits at the top of the the thigh and it really flattering :D

                                 




The second winning comment was #9:

Dweej, you get a stick drawing, so email me with the picture of your choice!
Little Gothic Horrors, you get the shirt, so email me with your deets!


I just want to thank each 204 of you who follow! I love getting to share my little demented mind and doodles with you guys!
__________________________________________________

It actually happened.  Just 5 months after getting 100 followers, I now have 200 followers! So basically, that's 20 new followers a month.  Not bad for a little blog that's been chugging along for 10 months.

Pickleope was worried I would change when I hit this number.


I don't think I have.  No really.


I don't think I have.

Anyway, since stick figures are what I do best (and no sponsors are knocking on my door...but mostly because of the stick figure thing) I decided to do the following giveaway:

A Drawing for a Drawing! 


Yup, I'm repeating the same thing I did last time.
Because I couldn't come up with a better idea if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it!!

But wait!  There's more!

I passed 10,000 hits on Sunday!  It's been a banner week here at Tri-ing to be Athletic!


And with that comes an extra surprise for a SECOND winner...it's a limited edition of something that I will tell you about when the contest is over.  I think it's pretty cool you guys :D

So here's what you need to do.  If you would like to win your VERY OWN stick figure version of yourself, leave one comment for each of the following:

Number 1:  (Mandatory--because this gets me more followers, which gets y'all more giveaways!)  Follow my site via Google Friends Connect (GFC).  *If the Followers tab is empty, reload the site and it should pop up.  Leave a comment in the comments section below saying you are a new follower or that you already follow.

Optional, for extra entries (You can click on the tabs/widgets on this page or click the links below):

Number 2:  'Like' me on Facebook.  Leave a comment  in the comments section below saying you are a new 'liker' or that you already 'like' me.  That way I will know that you like me! You really like me!

Number 3:  Follow me on Twitter.  I'm @triingathlete.  Leave a comment...

You get the point right?  You leave a separate comment for each follow, whether it's new or something you're already doing.

Also, Number 4:  Follow me through Networked Blogs.  Comment.

Oh, and Number 5:  Tweet about the giveaway. Comment.

How about Number 6, just for kicks:  Follow me on Blog Lovin.  Comment.

One more?  Okay here's Number 7:  Stumble me!    Comment.

Right. I think I've covered all the typical giveaway rules and many entry types.

I'll keep the contest open for one week and a couple of days.  That means I will lock it up on exactly Friday, November 4th.  Since I live on the west coast I'll pick the winner at about 8:30 a.m. PST.

I will use the random number generator to find the winner.







I swear I will be doing those race recaps after this. Two triathlons equal 6 upcoming posts!
