Monday morning excitement - there's even a prize involved.

The above title might be a little ironic.

A month ago I got a little curious as to who was reading this darn thing. I decided I needed some statistics. For as much as I hate calculating numbers I love looking at them. So, I decided to add something called Google analytics to my blog. You can't see it, but it tracks visitors, page views, time on the site, location etc. And all I can say is thank-you! In the last 30 days I have had more than 800 visits to the blog and more than 200 unique viewers.

So to celebrate I am giving away a little prize is one of my new favorite little ideas. Some Oklahoma State friends of mine (Kylee and Jon) started the business earlier this summer - and I am all about helping young people in this industry.

The idea is that for $20 per year you receive show results from state fairs, the majors - like the Royal, Louisville, junior nationals and other events. Sale results and reminders of when entries are due are also sent out. All these messages come across my phone via text message. And the even better thing is you can choose which states or breeds you want to receive results from so that your phone isn't overloaded with messages. This fall they are also going to be including judging results - I am a big nerd when it comes to finding out how my alma maters do at contests.

I always feel so smart when I can whip out my phone and rattle off the latest winnings or Express's sale average, and high sellers without even having been there.

Up for grabs is a one year subscription to . All you have to do is a leave a comment below with your name. If you are still a little new to blog commenting you can choose the anonymous option, just be sure to include your name and email address. On Friday, I will announce the results! What a great way to start the week.

Good luck to everyone!
