"Smithsonian" magazine giveaway!

Last week I hit the "300th post" mark for Alberti's Window. This is a big milestone for me! I'm so glad that I started this blog in 2007. Not only has this blog been a great way for me to organize my research and ideas, but I have gotten to collaborate and work with a lot of fantastic individuals in the process. Thanks to all of those who have worked with me along the way!

To celebrate, I wanted to have a little giveaway on this blog. I'm giving away two free 12-month subscriptions (11 issues) to Smithsonian magazine! I love Smithsonian; often articles from recent issues provide fodder for my post entries. Three of my favorite Smithsonian-inspired posts are: "What Old/Castaway Object Embodies You?", "Can You Spot Jackson Pollock's Name?", and "Sympathy for Renoir."

I will be randomly selecting the two subscription winners (using this site) on August 9, 2011. So you have just one week to enter this giveaway! You can enter your name up to four times. Here are the ways you can enter:

1) Leave a comment on this post!
2) Tweet about the giveaway (be sure to include my Twitter name: @albertis_window in your tweet, so I can find it). After tweeting, leave a comment on this post to let me know too, please.
3) Write about this giveaway on your own blog, and then include the URL in a comment on this post.
4) Become a follower of my blog (via Blogger - see sidebar on the left to join). Once you have become a follower (or, if you already are listed follower), leave a comment on this post.

Please make sure that you write a separate comment for each of your entries. I will write a post, announcing the two winners on August 9th. The winners will then have three days to contact me via email ( in order to claim the prize and give a mailing address. If a winner does not come forth by that time, I will then randomly select a new winner.

Unfortunately, I have to restrict this giveaway to readers who have mailing addresses in the United States. For all of my international readers - I promise to include you on another giveaway in the future!
