100K and a giveaway

Right then, so sometime over the last 24 hours we coasted through the 100K page views mark on the blog.
As you'd expect the increasing number of followers (now 175) and the increasing number of posts (282, with Evan more than doing his share) is helping that along significantly. That aside, we are immensely grateful for all our wonderful blogging mates who pop by and leave comments and participate in our madness.

Having hit the milestone it's time for the bit of the old giveaway madness that we all love so much.
We're going to stick with the tried ans tested rules for getting yourself into the prize draw.

The rules
Do each of the following for one entry in the draw and up to three if you do the lot.
  1. Leave a comment on this post telling us which prizes you would like in order of preference.
  2. Provide a link back to this post from your own wonderful blog.
  3. Become a new follower of the blog.
The draw
The compo closes at midnight AEST Saturday 12 July (one week from now). We'll use a suitably random method for working our the lucky winners and post the results on Sunday morning.

Prizes will be allocated based on people's preferences. Once you have won something you'll be out of the running for any remaining prizes i.e. one prize per person only. The first winner gets to choose from the lot, the second winner the two remaining prizes, etc.

Here's the loot...

Prize ONE
