Blogiversary vlog

I invite you to watch my first ever vlog (above) in which I explain a little about why I’m giving away books this week.

If you can’t see the video in this post go here to watch it.

We gave away a copy of Aaron Saufley’s The Jumbo Shrimp Gospel on Saturday and then a copy each of the new books from Max Lucado (Fearless) and Donald Miller (A Million Miles in a Thousand Years) yesterday.

Tonight at 9PM Pacific, we’ll do another drawing and give away another copy of Fearless and another copy of A Million Miles in a Thousand years.

All entries roll over day by day so every day you can have more chances to win. There are many ways to enter and you can get up to Twenty Three entries into today’s drawing (including getting one for commenting on this post). Here’s how:

Thanks for coming by, the giveaway is completely free so get your entries in now!

I am a blogger, author, stay at home dad, speaker, web hosting trainer and geek (I was so excited to get an iPad that I actually made up a song and dance about it). I am English by birth, but currently live in California with my wife and our three children. I ran a web hosting business for nine years and found that many, if not most of my clients had never learned how to use any of the functions associated with hosting so I wrote a book to try and teach just those skills. I must admit to having fallen in love with WordPress (possibly a little TOO much) and I honestly find it hard to understand why anyone would use anything different to build a site! WordPress is wonderful! My passion is to help others achieve their goals with their websites/blogs. I believe that, with a little help, anyone can have an awesome site.

    1. Yeah, it was pretty awesome for us too.

      I’m not sure whether it was what she decided to do or if it was a cultural thing or what but it really made us stop and think!

      Thanks for watching and commenting, Sarah!

  1. Hey Peter,

    I’m hoping to write something about being the Church this week on my blog. I’ll let you know when I post it. Better late than never… 🙂

  2. Peter, the accent doesn’t even come across in writer’s voice in your tweets. Maybe with 200 characters? Who knows.

    Beautiful story and inspiration for your giveaway. Can you feel God smiling?

  3. I’d love to enter the contest and I’d be happy to guest post for you sometime. Just let me know if there’s any direction you’d want it to go.

    1. Hi Amy,

      That’s six entries for you so far… don’t forget that you can come back Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and get even more entries.

      Thanks for entering!

  4. oh dude, va-va-va-voom, sexy accent mister lol. I had to watch a second time and actually figure out and pay attention to what you were saying. Again, I’d like to not be entered, though when you first announced the Jumbo Shrimp book I was tempted but then I thought I was just acting hungry lol

    1. Y’know… I actually get that problem sometimes. People don’t even listen to the words, they just hear my voice. If I had a penny for every time I’ve heard, “I LOVE your accent!… I’m sorry, what were you saying?” Then I’d have literally four or five cents by now!

      Don’t you just hate it when books tempt you by hitting your buttons with their titles and then it turns out that has nothing to do with what the book’s about?

      1. yeah, it’s a crime but the book owner could prevent imprisonment if they just give away some jumbo shrimp!
        and well what can I say?! Nice accents are sometimes like music. You have no idea what the person is singing but the beat sounds nice lol

  5. The story about the little girl was very inspiring.
    I know you said you are from England, but until now, when I read your words, I always heard a California dialect in my head. Now they compete. Yes. A California dialect mixed with a British Accent. Still, nice accent….

    My daddy had a Hungarian accents. I find Hungarian accents to be like a lullaby. I wonder if your kids feel the same way about British accents.
