Celebrate Hugging the Coast’s 1st Birthday By Entering Our New Contest!

Happy Blog Anniversary, Hugging the Coast.Com!Today’s Our 1st Blog Anniversary / Birthday!

It’s been a fun and exciting year writing about food, cooking, and the culinary arts here on HuggingtheCoast.Com, so we thought the best way to celebrate our first birthday was to start a (100% free) contest!

(Wondering what got us started blogging? Click here to find out more about the contest win that inspired this site!)

The Hugging the Coast.Com Winter Blog Comment Contest

Enter to Win! The Rules:

To enter, all you have to do is to leave one or more approved comment(s) on at least one of our daily blog posts published between 12/09/08 and 2/14/09.

Best of all, each approved comment gets you yet another entry into the contest!

Alas, this contest is open to U.S. residents only.

What Do You Mean By Approved Comment?

To cut down on the possibility of comment spam here on HuggingtheCoast.Com, all new comments are moderated before they are approved to appear on the site.

(After all, who wants to read spam comments about pain pills and other commercial quackery when they could be reading and discussing the joys of food and cooking?)

Best of all, each approved comment gets you yet another entry into the contest!
