The KD NSW 2010 Quarterly Challenge!

So I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty stoked to have made it through the first quarter of the year successfully. So stoked that I decided to celebrate–with a little contest. I mean, with all the effort that goes into this project, we might as well have a little FUN, eh?

So here’s the deal: Below you will find a list of 20 questions. All of the answers are right here in the blog. Some will be in the narrative, and some will be in the videos. Yes, I’m desperately trying to trick more people into watching these things (and doing the reading) in the hopes that it will get me a better place in Search-Engine-Land. Also, I think you’ll enjoy yourselves. I do. The outtakes alone are worth the price of admission, in my opinion. I can laugh at myself. But so can you–you can laugh at me, too. I encourage it.

Okay, so between now and April 30th, check out the videos and the blog, and answer the questions. Send your completed questionnaire to me by April 30th. Then on May 15th, all CORRECT questionnaires will be thrown into a hat and three lucky people will win some fabulous prizes. As Jeff Probst would say, “Wanna know what you’re playing for?”

  • First of all, everyone who sends me a completed questionnaire will get a free digital copy of the first quarter (January through March) NSW CD (tentative release date, May 15th).
  • Additionally, one local winner will receive a gift certificate for a one-hour muscular therapy treament ($80.00 value) with Darre Goulding Halloran, LNCMT, whose office is in Brookline, MA. Darre’s specialty is deep tissue massage for chronic pain relief and injuries; she also does relaxation massage to decrease stress and anxiety. I’m already jealous of whoever wins.
  • A second local winner will receive a 5-class card ($60.00 value) from Green Tea Yoga in Salem, MA. This is a fantastic yoga studio with classes for everyone, including children.
  • One national winner will receive a $20.00 gift certificate (plus $5.00 for shipping) and a gift basket containing 4 large soaps and a box of bath salts, all in their choice of scents from 4 Sisters Soaps. Ellen and her girls offer a great variety from the straightforward to the whimsical, and every soap is “handmade with laughter and love.”
  • “Worth playing for?” I think so! And all of the prizes were donated by friends of mine who are independent business owners—how cool is that? I’m so lucky to have such generous friends!

    So copy the questions below into a Word doc or whatever, and get busy finding the answers. And feel free to pass this on to your friends. The more the merrier! When you’re finished, e-mail your answers to:
