Nature Blog Network
Friday, September 21, 2007


This week’s theme is “paper.” Of course, Audubon Magazine is made of paper. So, in honor of this week’s theme and the fact that I’ve moved to this new domain, I’m giving away a year’s subscription to Audubon!

I am a subscriber to National Geographic, Birds and Blooms, Audubon Magazine, and others, and I have to say that Audubon is my favorite. The photography and the writing is every bit as good as National Geographic’s, but the articles are always wildlife and bird-themed, while other magazines often delve into other subjects (peoples, countries, etc.).

To be eligible to win the year’s subscription, all you have to do is mention this post in a post of your own and link back to this post (send a trackback or leave a comment letting me know you’ve linked this post). That’s it! Just mention the contest and link! The contest will close at 5:00 p.m. on Monday night, September 27, 2007, when my wife and I will put all the entrants into a hat and pull out the winner by random. That gives everybody 3 full days to link.

Two things to note: First, if you are the winner, you’ll need to give me enough personal information (name and address) so that I can send the magazine to someone (if you aren’t comfortable with that, sorry!). Second, your first issue will arrive January of 2008 (so you’ll have to wait a few months).

If you have any questions, let me know!

PS – You don’t have to be a member of Photo Hunt, or even be a nature blogger, to join the contest!

UPDATE – And the winner is…Bobbie and Bunch at Cats Goats and Quotes! Congrats! Send me an email, Bobbie, to privatepigg[at]hotmail[dot].com!

And thanks to everybody who linked and commented!
