Get Your Party Buttons Here!

The Tolkien Blog Party of Special Magnificence is only one month and one day away!  Can you believe that?  I'm getting really excited.  I have ten prizes lined up for the giveaway:  five for worldwide, and five for USA-only.  So far.  May end up with more by the time the party starts!  I've also nearly finished writing up the questions for participants to answer on their own blogs, and I'm working on a game or two as well.  

But never mind all that -- I promised party buttons, didn't I?  So here they are:  four lovely buttons for you to choose from.  My friend Emily created the first two, and I threw together the second pair for people who are fans of the movies as well as the books.  

The first three are 200 pixels wide, and the last is 150, if you care to know.

To put one of these on your own blog's sidebar, copy the html gobbledygook under the button of your choice, then paste it into an "html/javascript" gadget in your blog's layout.  That should make the picture appear and make it link back to this blog.  If you have problems, please let me know!  You can also just save one of these to your own computer and then add it to your blog that way, but please link it to this blog so that people can find out where the party is going to be.  Thanks!

  1. How exactly do I enter the giveaway? I did post the third button on my blog now though. :) I am looking forward to the whole blog party thing!

    1. Well, the giveaways won't be live until the blog party starts -- you'll get one entry just for participating, and then others by doing things like visiting the online shops that have provided prizes. Make sense?

  2. I'll try to participate! I'll post the button on my blog soon and see how much I can read with you!

    1. Awesome! Thanks!

      I'm guessing I'll be reading a chapter every 2-3 days, so a pretty easy reading pace, I think.
