I subscribe to the ProBlogger Twitter feed for blogging tips, but they also post job listings. I just saw that a site is looking for a blogger to recap The Biggest Loser after each show. I doubt it is for the official NBC site and is instead probably for a TV blog. I don’t watch the show, but if there are any fans who want to be paid $12 per post for a program they’re already watching, you can get the details here.
Filed Under: the biggest loser
Two giveaways in less than a week! When it rains it pours. Speaking of water, I’m giving away three Brita faucet mounts and three water bottles, courtesy of Brita, FilterForGood, and The Biggest Loser. As the press release I copied and pasted from said, “Brita and FilterForGood are partnering with The Biggest Loser to eliminate bottled water from the ranch in efforts to help contestants reduce their waists and their waste. Bottled water waste has become a very real environmental concern, with more than 38 billion disposable bottles sent to U.S. landfills last year.” This sounded like a good cause, and I’m all for reducing waste, reducing waists, and distributing free water filters.
So, how do you enter my giveaway? I briefly considered making you post recipes again like I did with the chicken giveaway. Then I came to my senses and realized I didn’t want to read dozens of entries about the best way to make ice. Instead, post a comment stating what your favorite body of water is and why. This includes oceans, lakes, rivers, that puddle in your backyard. Whatever. Personally, my favorite body of water is the Ohio River because it reminds me of Louisville, Kentucky, the town I grew up in. I will randomly choose 3 winners who will each receive a Brita® On Tap Filtration System (retail value $25.99!) and a 32oz FilterForGood water bottle. It’s a nice sturdy bottle in a lovely green color to emphasize green living. I didn’t have any Price is Right models handy, but Harold the garden gnome volunteered to model the lovely merchandise below:
I’m going to open this contest up to international readers as well, but I have no idea if international faucets will work with the mount. Even US residents should be aware that they might need an adapter. You can enter up until 11:59pm on Saturday, Februrary 2, 2008. And even if you don’t win, you can take the pledge to reduce bottled water waste on the FilterForGood site and get some Brita coupons.
