200th Post Contest!!

Time's up people. Thanks for playing and I can't wait to see who the winner turns out to be!

So I noticed earlier that I was just a couple posts away from hitting the 200 mark here in 2008! I wanted to do something special for my 200th post so I decided to do a contest! You will have two weeks to make a guess at the question below BUT the winner won't be announced until January 1, 2009! The winner will receive a box full of homemade stuff like soap, applesauce, apple butter, baked goods and maybe a few other fun things that I find between now and then! You will have to leave a comment and the one who comes closest will win!

How many total posts do you think I will have by the end of 2008?

Here are some possibly useful bits of information...I had 209 total posts in 2007 but didn't start blogging until March. I am currently a few posts behind and still have a lot events to come for the rest of 2008. Both of my boys have birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, possible visit from family, Christmas, etc. are the things that quickly come to mind. If you are like my husband, go figure out a mathematical equation to help you figure out your guess, if you aren't then just leave a fun comment and a guess. Be sure to sign your name if you leave an anonymous comment so I can find you if you win! Good luck!

So I'm guessing that you'll see all these high numbers as a challenge and I'll say... 260.

No fair skewing the posts to fit the winner of your choice though. Congrats on close to 200 posts. That is a big accomplishment and you should be proud.

Okay- I've thought about it all afternoon. I'm going with 250 even. You can go ahead and just send MY BOX right now...and NOT to Janet's address! : )

After CAREFUL consideration & complex equations I have figured that if X=Y x Pi/7^2(7x) then your blog total for the year of 2008 would be.....248! Thats my guess AND I'M STICKING WITH IT!! Unless i change my mind by monday! ; )
