April 28th Quote Snack News – Party Time!

This is a week of landmarks for QuoteSnack.

To celebrate, I’m serving up a tribute and some party favors.

A Tribute Choice, via Twitter

The American Cancer Society was QuoteSnack’s 5000th Twitter follower. In their honor, I’m going to be featuring 30 days of quotes by authors who happen to have been touched by cancer. Most will not be specifically about disease, and I won’t be pointing out who died of cancer, or if the quote was from before or after diagnosis: mortality does not devalue living. The first of my tribute is today’s Randy Pausch quote. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve watched his Last Lecture on YouTube, and it has changed my life… though I have yet to buy a Mac.

Incidentally, Quotesnack’s first Twitter follower was none other than Donna Fontenot, good friend and ace business coach. There’s really nothing like a good brainstorm. If you should happen to be in the market for an Internet business coach, I highly recommend Donna. She’s got lots of experience and is easy to communicate with. We chatted about domain names when I was first thinking through my idea for this site. “Quotesnack.com” could easily have been “litbits.com” or “quotelust.com.” Eh? Exactly.. Fortunately, QuoteSnack emerged as the winner.

On QuoteSnack I focus on published books with a source to point to, so others can get it, take it home, and see it in context. If you have quotes to recommend, or perhaps a book to plug, please don’t hesitate to click on over to my contact form and drop me a line. I’m also looking for photographers who’d like a little free exposure from QuoteSnack, for this tribute series or possibly in the longer term.

The Party Favors

Between now and the end of May I’m giving away mugs and tote bags from the QuoteSnack store, in your choice of design. For the first one, let’s see, how about a drawing for my Twitter followers?

Between now and May 10th, retweet any QuoteSnack quote with an @quotesnack in your tweet, or, you could just tweet this:
RT to win a tote or mug from @quotesnack http://cli.gs/P8M7Jb

On May 11th I’ll pick a retweeter at random, and notify you via Twitter Direct Message. Winners will get the QuoteSnack mug or tote of their choice. Of course, if a winner would rather have something else, they can pick what they want and cover any price difference.

After the 11th I’ll have another surprise for you. Stay tuned, or, more accurately, subscribe!
