Youth gone mild

My first big giveaway! A family 4 pack of tickets to see Monster Jam!


I can't believe it. I feel very honored and proud to announce my first ever prize giveaway on my little ol' blog here. I'm giving away a family 4 pack of tickets to see Advance Auto Parts' Monster Jam Path of Destruction Tour in East Rutherford, NJ on Saturday,June 16th. If you don't know what Monster Jam is, check out their site.  It's the biggest monster truck show around featuring all the monster trucks you've ever heard of: Grave Digger, Maximum Destruction, Monster Mutt, and El Toro Loco to name a few.  I am admittedly a novice but I'm really looking forward to learning more by seeing it all live.

If you follow my blog, you know that I like to do things a little outside of the box. Well, that's why I'm doing this giveaway now: to keep you on your toes always guessing what's next.

It's been almost a year since I started writing publicly, and without getting all gushy... Oh forget it, I'm going to get all gushy. It's a very overwhelming feeling to be recognized for something you enjoy doing. I never thought in a million years I'd be writing things and hitting a Publish button for the world to read.  It feels good to know people read what I write. 

I appreciate all of you readers very much. That's why I want one of you to take your family to see the awesome Monster Jam show on the 16th. Maybe Dad would enjoy going as an early Father's Day gift!

My family & I are going to see it in Philly this weekend.  I'm so psyched and so's my family.  I can only bet that the show is going to rock, but I know the June 16th show is going to be amazing.  Driver Tom Meents is going to attempt to complete a double back a monster front of you.  WOW.  I didn't know trucks could flip even once, let alone twice.

In addition to this ticket giveaway, I want to tell you about another cool thing about Monster Jam.  Advance Auto Parts is also running a contest to be a guest correspondent at the show. If you sign up for that, you could win interviews with drivers and crew members alongside Speed Network’s Scott Douglass and document the behind-the-scenes craziness that goes along with the show. My son and I entered. Here's the video:


Our video's not all that good but hey, why not, right? If you go for it, you'll get 10 extra entries in the giveaway contest! Why not try it yourself?

OK, so here's what you have to do:  Follow the instructions below on this cool Rafflecopter raffle widget and you'll get as many entries as you choose to put in.  The contest ends June 14th at midnight and the winner will be announced the next day.  The winner's tickets will be available for pick up at the show's Will Call window.

*Please note: I am not requiring any of you to "Like" any Facebook pages, but if you at least check them out and CHOOSE to like them on your own, that would be much appreciated.

Also, since this is my first giveaway, I'd love feedback on what you think about it.  Did I do OK?  What could I improve?  Thanks for all your help.  I hope you win!!
