SOAPnet and Blogcritics Get All Sudsy on a Giveaway

You know what I'm not afraid to admit? Honestly, there are a lot of things that I should be afraid (or at the very least embarrassed) to admit, but in specific this time I'm referencing the fact that I used to watch General Hospital.

Man, there was a time in my life (three of my four years in college) that I would sit and watch that show every single day. It always really upset me though that I was going to school in Baltimore and that they were a day behind with the episodes. I felt like if I was taking time of out my busy schedule (organic chemistry) to watch GH, the least WMAR could do was air it on time.

Okay, that least bit is neither here nor there, but I really wish that when I had been in college there would have been a way for me not to spend an hour every single day watching, that there had been a cable channel that would air all the week's episodes back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back. That would have been truly swell.

Well, it's years later, and someone heard my call. SOAPnet is now in existence and it's like they heard my wish. And now, SOAPnet is doing one better, they're redesigning and relaunching their website. It was swell before, but now, I'm told, it's going to be super-swell, maybe even super-duper-swell, maybe even ultra-super-duper-swell.

Don't believe me? Maybe I can convince you to check it out. You have absolutely no obligation to do so, but we here at Blogcritics think you might want to check it out. In fact, with SOAPnet's help we're launching a little giveaway to make sure you know all about the new SOAPnet website.

We're giving away to one incredibly, hugely, ridiculously lucky winner: an iPod Nano, a Marc Jacobs’ wallet, a Barney's $25 gift card, a Pinkberry $15 gift card, and an iTunes $15 gift card. Seriously, all that stuff just for one lucky winner. Can you imagine?

And why are we doing this? Because we want to make sure you know all about the new SOAPnet website. They even have a beautiful logo…

As for the rules? Good question, here they are (well, and there are some on the entry form, too):

  • The winners will be drawn on or after August 16, 2008.
