Crazy Sweet Tuesday & Amazon Kindle HD 8.9″ Tablet Giveaway

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where I entice you all to eat loads and loads of sugar and you love me for it.

Thank you all for coming back today. It really makes me happy that you come back each week.

A little business before the par-tay…

Have you heard about Online BlogCon? It’s the online blog conference that Ashton (from Something Swanky Desserts & Designs) and I have been putting together. It’s the blog conference that anyone can attend – because it’s all online! The conference takes place from October 22-24 and registration is now open. There are going to be some great posts from your favorite bloggers. But that’s not all!

There are also going to be some fabulous giveaways, from sponsors like Silpat, My Memories, and Simply Sweet Creations. You won’t want to miss these, I promise.

But wait. There’s more. There is one super-huge fabulous giveaway that I am so excited about. It’s so exciting I wish I could enter.

One lucky Online BlogCon attendee is going to win a Kindle Fire HD 8.9″. It’s the newest tablet e-reader in the Kindle family. Seriously, just reading about this thing makes me want one SO bad. It puts my old Kindle to shame.

Here are just some of the specs for this fantastic new tablet:

  • 1920×1200 HD display with polarizing filter and anti-glare technology for rich color and deep contrast from any viewing angle
  • Exclusive Dolby audio and dual stereo speakers for crisp, booming sound without distortion

  • Dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi for 40% faster downloads and streaming (compared to iPad 3)
  • Over 22 million movies, TV shows, songs, magazines, books, audiobooks, and popular apps and games such as Facebook, Netflix, Twitter, HBO GO, Pandora, and Angry Birds Space
  • Integrated support for Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! and more, as well as Exchange calendar, contacts, and email
  • Free Skype video calls with front-facing HD camera
  • Free unlimited cloud storage for all your Amazon content
  • Includes special offers and sponsored screensavers.

This new Kindle Fire HD comes out in November…which means one lucky Online BlogCon member will get it pre-ordered for her! (Or him, we don’t discriminate. ;))

The only mandatory entry (worth 5 entries) for this giveaway is to register to attend Online BlogCon, which you can do here. After you fulfill that entry requirement, there are LOTS of ways for you to enter! Simply click through the rafflecopter form to like our sponsors and affiliates links. Each one grants you another entry into the giveaway. If you’ve already registered to attend the conference, simply click OK to fulfill the mandatory entry requirement! (We will be confirming that the winner of the giveaway is a registered attendee– no cheating y’all!)

There is a $200 cash option…should you not want a tablet. That will be paid via paypal in lieu of the Kindle Fire.

  1. Dorothy,
    Thanks for the fabulous party! I would love to win the new kindle fire. I have the original and tend to use my i-pad instead because there’s no back light or internet 🙁 Have a great weekend.

  2. Shucks…I can’t link up this week as I made something savory and not sweet. Boo. But, this is a great opportunity to sign up for your conference and get my name in the hot 5x for this Kindle giveaway. I have Kindle envy SO bad. Great giveaway!! See you next week!

  3. Thanks for hosting as always! Have I mentioned how excited I am about Blogcon? I’m thinking about buying new PJs just for the occasion!

  4. I’m afraid Twitter is going to think I’m a bot with all these new follows, LOL! I’m so excited for Online BlogCon!! The Kindle sounds amazing but that $200 would help me get to the Build Your Blog Conference I’m also hoping to go to in February, hmmm, no idea what I’d pick if I won. Love this link-up too, so many good looking treats!!
