Win a Dunkin Donuts Coffee Gift Basket

http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2008/11/win-a-dunkin-donuts-coffee-gift-basket/

Update: Congratulations to Julie F. who won the coffee basket. Julie I will be in touch for your address.

If there’s anything most writers agree on, it’s that coffee is one of our most important tools. It’s gets us through the day, and many times, through the night. Dunkin Donuts understands this and has generously offered a basket of coffee to give away to one lucky FWJ reader.

The basket contains four pound bags of various flavored Dunkin Donuts coffees and a mug to go along with, valued at $50.

So how does one win a Dunkin Donuts Coffee Gift Basket?

We’re going to go on a little scavenger hunt. Put your answers in the comments below for a chance at the random drawing. Don’t worry it’s easy. And don’t copy from your neighbor because the questions are going to be changed around from time to time without warning. So here are your scavenger hunt questions. Don’t worry, everything is on the top page of each blog so it shouldn’t take long for you to find the answers.

1. Go to the Dunkin Donuts website and tell us which flavors you’d choose for your own gift basket.

2. Visit Network Blogging Tips and tell everyone how I feel about Blog Networks.

3 Pop in to Freelance Writing Job Hunting Tips and tell us what you should look for instead of a freelance writing job..

4. Swing by our Business Tips for Writers and tell us what is the ultimate killer when it comes to asking for a raise.

5.Go to Article Writing Tips and tell us one thing you can learn from your feed reader.

This contest ends Sunday, November 23rd at midnight. Good luck!

  13. Thanks for the rockin’ contest! And an fyi to your readers, Dunkin Donuts is also giving away a free sample of their dark coffee…mmmmm

    1. I would love the hazelnut coffee, that sounds yummy. Or the cinnamon spice.
    2. You love blog networks.
    3. You should look for an opportunity instead of a freelance writing job.
    4. Fear is the ultimate killer when asking for a raise.
    5. You can learn great writing from your feed reader.

  14. Leigh A. Smith says:

    1. So many beans, so little time! In order of preference if I would miraculously win: French Vanilla, Hazelnut, then Cinammon Spice.
    2. Well, you don’t hate ‘em! In fact, you owe much to them, for they provide a sense of community and are an invaluable tool. You just have to ask yourself one question–and it’s not “do you feel lucky, punk?”–it’s “do the hurdles justify the medals given out at the end”?”
    3.Opportunity, such as the chance to captivate a client with your “write stuff.” (Sorry to be so corny.)
    4. Fear, paralyzing and dreadful!
    5. If you aren’t learning at least 3 things, you need to go back to the drawing board. With that in mind, you should at least read (and think about, I might add!) great writing. Didn’t Emerson or someone say “hitch your wagon to a star”? Reading great writers helps you get the wagon going.

  15. 1. Duncan Decaf, Hazelnut, Original Blend, and then whatever else you’d like to offer.
    2. You think they are good for those just beginning to blog or not in it for the money, but those who are trying to make money should look at money/time issues.
    3. Opportunity
    4. Fear
    5. You should look for great writing in all niches.

    This would be awesome to win! :)

  16. LOL, I found this page form a google search for donuts, looking for recipes for different stuff for my donut maker. Nothing here it seems!

  17. 1. Original Blend and Hazlenut
    2. You love them but have concerns about them whether the end justifties the means
    3. An opportunity
    4. Fear
    5. News-Local,World, and Industry
