Although the button above just shows Alabama and Auburn, You can participate in this carnival no matter what team you root for!! If I don't already have a button available for your school, ask me for one and I’ll make it!
Participating is a great way to get to know other Alabama Bloggers, have other bloggers visit your blog, and a fun way to celebrate the onset of football season.
And as a bonus, we have two amazing sponsors that will be rewarding some of the participants!
The amazing Birmingham Gourmet Burger joint, Baha Burgers, will be providing $10 gift cards to five randomly selected participants. You don’t have to be on the winning team to win one of these – you just have to participate in the Carnival.
And the grand prize is provided by Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe – one winner will be chosen at random from the winning team to get a tailgate party catered by Taziki’s for 10 people!Thank you SO much to Baha and Taziki's for their wonderful prizes!!!
Here’s how the Carnival works:
You can score points for your team in three different ways:
1. Field Goal: You score three points for your team if you put your team’s button on the sidebar of your blog (buttons will be below). Be sure to comment on this post or the next post that you added the button so I can properly add your field goal!
2. Touchdown: You score seven points for your team if you write a blog post about your football experience/team/thoughts with your team’s button at the top, and you link up to THIS POST (the link-up is at the bottom).
3. Extra Point: You can score one extra point for your team by tweeting or facebooking about the Football Carnival. Be sure to comment on this post or the next post that you tweeted or facebooked!
You can link up your posts anytime between now and Monday, September 6th. The winning team will be announced on Tuesday, September 7th, as well as all of the prize winners.
As far as the prizes go, you will get one entry into the drawing for the prizes for each point you score for your team.
And, as a bonus, you can get extra entries into the drawings by:
- following Taziki’s on Twitter,
- following Baha Burgers on Twitter,
- liking Taziki’s on Facebook, and
- liking Baha Burgers on Facebook.
Again, let me know that you earned any of these entries in a comment so that I can credit them to you!! You can put all of your extra entries and information into one comment, as I'm keeping a spreadsheet of points and entries.
Be sure to watch Twitter and the top of this blog for score updates!!
