NEW CONTEST!!! Winner picks either a $50 Fandango or $50 Sephora gift card!

Make Her Up has changed the way comments work. From now on – your comments will show up in a Facebook window. Two reasons for doing this. One – I can’t even begin to tell you the kind of spam I was getting in my comments. It added a whole other dimension to blogging, and was a major pain in my arse.  This eliminates the spam problem – entirely.

Second – it gives Make Her Up a much better community feel – which we’re all about! We’ll be able to moderate and view the comments much easier now, which means more interaction from Erin and I!

If you are shy about commenting now – maybe this will wet your whistle. I’m giving away either a $50 Fandango gift card or a $50 Sephora gift card (winner picks) – just for the heck of it!

All you have to do – is leave a comment below that says “I want Make Her Up’s $50 Fandango gift card!” There will be (1) winner – and I’ll run this for…. say a week.

Since I also run ICYDK - I’m going to post the same contest on that site. For an extra chance to win – you can enter on both sites! Go here!

Comment away!
