Contest for Bleeding Espresso Facebook Fans

Hey are you a fan of Bleeding Espresso on Facebook yet? We’re over 800 strong, so grazie mille to all of you who have followed the blog over there!

But if you’re still not convinced as to why you should become a fan on Facebook, let me assure you that things go on over there that never hit the blog.

For instance, in addition to seeing whenever new blog posts are up, you’ll also find:

  • Links to contests around the Internet that I think BE readers would like
  • Links to blogs, articles, and other websites you might find useful
  • Comments, recommendations, and other chit chat among fellow BE readers

And, starting today:

Special contests, offers, and promotions available *only* to Facebook fans!

So let’s kick this off with a rather generous giveaway…

Here’s a hint before you click over.

*Something* to do with Dianne Hales, author of La Bella Lingua…hmm…..

Can Bleeding Espresso reach 1,000 FB fans by the end of the month?!

Feel free to spread the word, of course!

15 Beans of Wisdom to “Contest for Bleeding Espresso Facebook Fans”
  1. Gil

    You have more readers than some of the newspapers these days!

    Newspapers really are in tough shape, aren’t they? Very sad…I’m not looking forward to having to pay to read the NY Times online, though, I’ll tell you that much!

    I am a fan of Italian language too. Italian is officially my second-foreign language as we were all forced to take English classes in middle school. I took two semesters’ Italian classes in college. Unforgettable experience. Our professor, I must say, is a language genius. He teaches both Italian and French in our school, and he also speaks Russian, Spanish, Japanese, English, a little Portuguese. And actually he is a professor of astronomy. I am also fond of Classical music. So I listened to operas often. In my opinion, there is no other language more suitable for opera than Italian.

    Great to have you here, Linghong! And congratulations on choosing such a beautiful language πŸ˜€

  9. Great idea Michelle! I only have 27 fans because I cannot sort out my fan page from private page. I am happy as long as people are reading my blog.

    I’d add you 300 times if I could to make you have 1000 fans.


    That’s very sweet, Julie…you’ll see your numbers grow πŸ™‚
