So . . . I gave France three days to respond and it seems there were no takers for a free copy of Mirror. As I said, I had no idea how this event would play out, but I am not defeated quite yet. My rule book reads, if the first one view/one visitor forfeits his/her win, I must move to the next one view/one visitor country on the list for 8 December, and again make the offer. Let’s see if I will be successful this time!
The stats are in and so it begins! It occurred to me that there is really no way I can confirm the identity of the one view/one visitor. If a friend of the blog sees that their country is listed as the first one view/one visitor, they can easily contact me and say they are the one and I really cannot refute it, right? So a bit of a change in the event rules as it comes down to basically awarding the country and not necessarily the visitor. This little update and bend in the rules creates a more interesting contest now!!^^ If your country is listed as the first one view/one visitor, it will come down to who contacts me first. If you are the first to tweet me at @micheledemarco ~~>”(name of country) loves #MBLAQ #OneMirrorAMonth” then you become the proud owner of one copy of MBLAQ’s Mirror. The only caveat is that if you respond, you have to be from and physically living in the one view/one visitor winning country. Let’s begin!
A couple of years ago I sat down with a Jyotishi to have a look at my birth chart in order to see how my karmic path was affecting my present life. Yes, I realize that sounds like a bunch of new-agey hocus pocus. But, I happen to believe in the inexplicable beauty of how the universe and our lives collide. I am weird like that.
Jyotish, or the science of light, is actually an ancient form of astrology that has been practiced for centuries throughout India. It is a Vedic science that basically describes the planetary patterns at the time of our birth and can give us valuable clues to understanding our life’s journey. When the Jyotishi asked me if I liked to write, I casually said yes. He then told me with urgent insistence to start writing and to begin right away because it would change my life forever.
