I love reading magazines. I actually prefer to read books but often I don’t have time to breath, let alone read a book (or so it would seem). So I rely on magazines to “feed” my need to read.
Some magazines I have delivered to my Kindle Fire. I feel that it’s best not to waste paper whenever possible. Plus not all magazine prices are the same so I like to have the more expensive ones sent to the Kindle Fire to save a few dollars. Other magazines I like to have paper copies of because I like to save them and refer back to them again and again, most especially magazines like Taste of Home which always has mouth watering recipes in each and every issue.
Speaking of Taste of Home, did you hear about their “Mrs. Holiday” contest? It PAYS $50,000!
Here is the information from the press release.
Recognizing the enormity of the holidays to peoples’ personal lives and the U.S. economy, Taste of Home has begun a nationwide search on Facebook.com/TasteofHome to identify candidates for the position of Mrs. Holiday, a spokesperson role at the company, which includes a $50,000 payment. “Mrs. Holiday will be a new type of pageant queen,” said Taste of Home editor-in-chief Catherine Cassidy. “She’s an advocate, an ambassador and an inspiration who cooks for her family to bring everyone around the table at the holidays. She’s got memorable recipes combined with a celebration attitude.”
To audition for the role of Mrs. Holiday, women age 18 or older must visit Facebook.com/TasteofHome to enter a virtual pageant. There they can submit a video entry of no more than two minutes to show/tell us how they bring the holidays to life and convince us why they should be Taste of Home’s Mrs. Holiday. They also should submit a signature holiday recipe in 200 words or less. The full entry rules and instructions are provided at Facebook.com/TasteofHome. All entries will receive a free chocolate chip cookie recipe as a thank you for auditioning.
Unlike the Miss America pageant, consumers will have a hand in picking Mrs. Holiday by voting for their favorite entrant at Facebook.com/TasteofHome starting on June 4 and ending on September 7. Mrs. Holiday will be selected from among the top 100 vote getters by a panel of experts.
Once officially crowned, Mrs. Holiday will be available to conduct interviews, cooking segments, and blogging, as well as to make appearances across the country at retailers and some of the more than 300 Taste of Home cooking schools.
I WISH I had what it takes to do this. I would do this in a heart beat. It sounds like a lot of fun and an experience of a lifetime.
If you enter – GOOD LUCK! Keep me posted and let me know if you win.
