New Category.. and a contest!

Matt and I were sitting around and trying to think of ways to make our little blog more interactive for our readers. Cue the invention of a new category here at Brownie Bites. “Show me Your…”!

Now, you’re probably thinking, “‘Show me Your..’? Show me your what?? This better not be anything dirty! I’m not showing you my anything, and that’s that!”

Alright now, let’s not get our panties in a twist.  Allow me to explain:

I’ve always found the differences in how people go about their day to day lives very fascinating.  Things like how your closet is organized, what items you keep in your purse, what you keep on your desk, your morning routine, or simply the method you choose to eat an Oreo or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.  All of the little mundane things that make up the unique ticks and tocks of how a person goes about their business.  It’s pretty cool how much you can learn about someone just by asking them if they hang up their toilet paper so that it unfolds over or under!  Though, I wouldn’t really recommend blurting out a question like that to a complete stranger.  Cause, you know, that could be awkward.

Here’s where you come in.  Each month, we are going to ask our readers to take a photo of something pertaining to everyday life, and answer a couple of easy questions about themselves.   The entries will then be posted anonymously on our blog.

Now for the fun part.  Once we have posted all of the entries, we will randomly select one person to receive a prize!   It may be a gift card!   It may be a book!  It may be a puppy! (probably not.. I’d keep it for myself)

Prizes! Yay!

That brings me to our very first contest.   Show me Your… Fridge!

Here’s how to enter:

Send me one vertically-oriented (up and down) photo of the inside of your fridge.  Bigger the better.  I’m not looking for anything super fancy or professional.. as long as it’s clear. 

Answer the following questions:

1.  How many people live in your home?
2. What is/are your occupation(s)?
3. Do you live in a house, apartment, condo, duplex, or dorm?

Now, just send all of that in an e-mail to  and you are done!

Entries must be received by Tuesday, April 19th at 8pm EDT and entries will be posted on Wednesday.  The lucky winner of the random drawing will receive a $25 Gift Card (you must have a valid e-mail address where I can send the gift code).

To get us started, here is our fridge, with an example caption:

Photographers & Programmer | 2-person household | Single family home

Your turn!  Bust out that digital camera and get to work!

    Sent in my entry: Didn’t clean it out first….that would temper the results of how we actually live….only clean it out the day we go shopping to make room for what we buy and to check the expiration dates….

    This is cool!
