Happy Monday at this part of the world πŸ™‚ And boy, it’s freezing here:

The reading is in Fahrenheit πŸ˜‰

How’s your holiday shopping coming along? We scoured pretty much all the major stores you can think of and returned home with some loot:

Not too bad after a failed attempt yesterday. And look at my pink winter head cap? I’ve never own anything as pink as that, ever πŸ˜€ The Hubs has been chuckling ever since, and I love him and the head cap.

Shopping tip: Google for “printable coupons” and you’d be surprise to find a couple of discounted coupons online. We took advantage of $10 off and 15% discounts on top of already in-store discounted price! Pssst … JCPenny πŸ˜‰

Since I’m all about shopping for the last 2 days, let’s make this interesting shall we?

GIVEAWAY! Yes, you read it right!

To celebrate Christmas and New Year, Chris Pearson, the creator of Thesis Theme Framework, is giving you a chance to win ONE free copy of Thesis Theme for WordPress – Personal Option valued at $87!

What a great contest!

I desperately need a new theme for my blog. I love the Thesis theme, but haven’t had the money for one (my current theme is even a free theme that looks like Thesis). I’m trying to take blogging more seriously now and I realize that having a good WP theme will help me be more credible – and more successful. There are so many more capabilities on a real theme than on the one I currently use. It would be a dream come true. Thanks again.

Mackell,
Thanks for your entries in this giveaway. Thesis is one of the best WP theme framework for anyone who has little to no knowledge of html and programming. Stay tuned for similar or other future giveaways.

I have been a follower of this blog since a long time. Also, I think my Blog really needs a makeover and it is getting clumsier day by day, so I have to upgrade to a new theme. If I get the Thesis license in this giveaway it will really help me save some cash! Looking forward to winning it! (I was following you using @techfreaks since a long time and was a newsletter subscriber too)

I follow you on Twitter. I have three blogs one is for a business my husband I are starting. The blog is to be part of a larger functioning website but the current format is not working for us. I love how clean and crisp thesis created blogs are but we are spread financially thin and did not think we could afford an upgrade anytime soon.

Check put our current pending business blog.

We are still on the market for a directory web designer.

I treated this giveaway. I intended on getting a thesis revamp on Mommy blog.

21 Sagar Gholap December 18, 2010 at 1:05 PM

I’ve been using some free theme I found several months back which is very simple and easy to navigate with no additional features like that of Thesis. Thesis is good, easy to understand with a plus point of great seo friendly options and that is the reason why I would like to have it on my blog.

I have subscibed to your newsletter via email and following you on twitter through @sagargholap

Sagar,
I’ve also used many free, good themes out there before switching over to a paid theme. Thesis framework is so unique yet simple to customize with its personalized dashboard. I concur with you on the robust SEO capabilities that are built within the framework. Nonetheless, there would be similar or other future giveaways, so stay tuned. And thank you for participating πŸ™‚

23 Kelly December 18, 2010 at 10:19 PM

Hi Kiran! I need thesis in my life! Thanks to your help I just went self hosted and there are no free themes that suit my blog needs/wants. I would LOVE to win this!! Plus I am a poor college student and can only afford to put so much money into my blog. A free thesis would certainly help!

24 Kiran December 21, 2010 at 5:03 PM

Kelly,
Thanks for your participation’s πŸ™‚
I am so glad you bought Thesis just in time to celebrate your move into self-hosting. Cheers and good luck! There would be similar or other future giveaways, so stay tuned πŸ™‚

Hi Kiran,
I have done all the steps

1. subscribed to your feed

2.Tweeted your link :- http://twitter.com/#!/sivadasari/status/16552885110177793

3. I would rather be lying if i dont agree that i will be using it on some of my blogs. More than that I want to get my hands on this theme because i want to study this theme,find out why so many people recommend this,what is so good in this which is not present with others. What makes it top priority selection when we so many frameworks flying over the net.

Also being interested in web designing i love doing the customizations and will definitely do that if i get this theme framework.

Sivaprakash,
