FOLK Magazine Subscription Giveaway...Get the Scoop Here!

FOLK Magazine Issue IV

I don't remember exactly how I discovered FOLK Magazine, but I know it was sometime last summer and probably through someone's blog or Facebook...What I do remember is that the magazine wasn't yet published and I anxiously awaited, along with so many others, until September for the first issue because of the enthusiasm of the young staff and the freshness and variety of content.

So Cute!
When I say young staff, I mean...I am old enough to be their mom! It doesn't seem like so long ago that I was a twenty-something ready to set the world on fire and here I am already looking at the next generation's great accomplishments. I'm so very impressed at the vision, editor-in-chief, Ben Ashby and the staff at FOLK has for this new magazine...which is soon to go national by the way with Issue V

Blueberry Sun Tea

In their blog announcement they say, "We are all about the country, sweet tea, indie music, antiques, roadtrips, small towns, comfort, home, artists, locally grown and locally made, one-of-a-kind art, open spaces, photography, patriotism, simple living, and the little things." 

Do I need to say any more? They had me at "sweet tea"!

There is more...lots more that will appeal to you, my blog readers, besides the beautiful photography, great ideas for your home and the scrumptious family recipes...

...they call for submissions for each issue from their readers and this month they are collaboratively working with Donna at Funky Junk Interiors. If you've ever wanted to get published, this could be a wonderful opportunity for you! The folks at FOLK are looking for contributors of projects and stories. If your submission is selected you will receive: 
- a feature in FOLK!
- 5 free FOLK magazines of the issue you are in
- 1 free year's subscription to FOLK
- an opportunity to host your own FOLK giveaway event on your blog
Follow the link below for complete details if you are interested....

Have you ever seen such a generous opportunity? 

Well how about another? 

1 year subscription

FOLK has given me a year's subscription to give away for one of my readers. For the next week , here at the ranch, I will be running a contest for the winner. I have to keep things simple so here's the deal...

1)Follow the FOLK blog....American Folk Life and leave them a nice comment.
If interested you can also find them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest...look for the links on their blog sidebar...again, let them know you found them.

2) Leave me a comment here on this post. That's it! 

If you don't have a blogger account you can follow a blog by subscription (RSS link in sidebar) and can leave a comment by checking the anonymous option for commentors. Also, if you don't have a blog you will need to leave your email address with your comment so I can contact you if you are the winner.

It would also be great if you told your friends and sent them back here too for an opportunity to win too...oh come on, let's share!

This contest will run until midnight, Sunday February 26th, be chosen randomly and announced on Monday morning here on the blog.

 In the meantime you can pick up a copy from your retailer, locally here or buy a subsciption here.

Good luck!
