I am entering my own Group Effort Pay it Forward Contest. That is, I am running a Pay it Forward contest on this Baby Names site, and it is a separate contest from the one you can also enter at the Swistle site.
The complete and overly-exhaustive rules are over through that link, but the basic idea is that to enter this contest, you leave a comment on this blog before noon on Friday July 4th, U.S. Pacific Time. If you win, I send you a prize. When you get the prize, you run a Pay it Forward contest on your own blog. If you don't have a blog, I will choose a second commenter, and that will be the winner of your Pay it Forward contest.
The prize for the Baby Names Pay it Forward will be a copy of Laura Wattenberg's excellent baby name book The Baby Name Wizard. If this isn't a prize you're interested in, don't despair! Go over to the list of other participants---there's sure to be a prize or two in there you're interested in winning.
The comment can be anything ("Me me me!" "You are SO RAVISHINGLY BEAUTIFUL!" "I am entering"), but if you feel tongue-tied, why not leave the most unusual baby name you've ever encountered?
