I like being nosey sometimes. Why do you think I buy Us and sent my husband the latest Living Social deal for a year subscription to Us? Yep. I like to know what is going on in people's lives. I like to get the scoop. That is why I came up with this little game of "Name That Job". I get to learn more about bloggers that I have read for a long time and brand new ones, too. Plus, you get to know more about them and, if you are one of the featured bloggers, people get to know about you, too. Win-win, my frien'! You can see our last game here and past games can be found under the "Special Features" tab in the navigation bar.
Remember, with all of these game questions, you will be selecting the job that blogger did NOT have. Three of the four items are jobs that blogger actually had. Also, to make it more fun, there is a prize for one of you lucky people!
A year subscription to Us, of course.
I'm assuming if you are somewhat nosey, you'll like this gift. If it's something you are not interested in, maybe you'd like to give it to someone else. Surely you know someone nosey. Surely, Shirley.
***This giveaway will end at midnight on December 9th. Our next "Name That Job" game will happen on Monday, December 17th. If you are interested in being a part of an upcoming game, either use the "Contact Me" form above or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.***
