Contest, of sorts...

All-righty my lovely readers, I am about to make an order from Amazon, it's going to be a bigger order and one of you lovely readers who have an Amazon.com associate account will get the credit for it. Read on to find out who...

This is what I'm going to be ordering:
Yamaha YPG-235 76-key Portable Grand Graded-Action USB Keyboard

I'll also order some accessories to go with it:
Yamaha PKBX2 Double X Portable Keyboard Stand

And a case:
World Tour Deluxe Keyboard Gig Bag for Yamaha (YPG235)
I already have an adapter for it. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know how long I've been waiting to get one of these, money doesn't come easy here, I'm not complaining one little bit, our life is good and it's good on very little money coming in, so I had to wait to save up my Amazon.com associate credits (thanks to those who made your Amazon.com purchases through my links!). I am cheating just a little though, I'm using some of my income tax return as well.

So, for my lovely readers with Amazon.com associate accounts, respond here in the comment with a link to your site, it must have an easy to find Amazon.com link there, when I get ready to order, I'll do a drawing from everyone who has responded and that's who will get the credit for the sale. This is going to be a short contest, I'm going to be ordering early next week, so there isn't much time, I'll hold off as long as I can, but I've already been waiting far too long and my fingers are itching to start playing! The only reason I'm waiting until next week is I'm waiting on my tax return, it's supposed to hit the bank early in the week.

A quick note, whoever is chosen, I will go to your site and click on one of your Amazon.com links (that's why there needs to be an easy to find Amazon link to a product on your site), you do not need to create a special link for this that goes to the keyboard, though you can if you wish to. Once I click on your link, then I will immediately purchase the keyboard and accessories. This SHOULD give you the credit for the sale, but I'm not guaranteeing anything, I believe this is the way it works, the last place where I clicked on an Amazon.com product link (with your code embedded) should get the credit for the next sale. I will do my best to make sure it happens that way. I am also assuming that doing this isn't against Amazon's rules, so far I haven't found anything that says I can't do this, if I find out differently, I will remove the "contest", I do not want to do anything that will jeopardize my account with Amazon.

I am so excited about this, I've been practicing on the piano at church, and I've been getting better and better (if I do say so myself), everyone who hears me play comments on how well I sound. The lessons I'm taking are really paying off, and I've only done the first 2. I need to be able to practice everyday in order to really progress past the first lesson in the second part of the lesson pack.

I have lots of artists and musicians in my family, so it's in my DNA to be musical (and artistic), growing up I focused on art, mainly because I was so shy, when you sing or play an instrument it's usually something you DO in front of people, I was flat out too shy to do that, now drawing and painting, I could do that in private then display the finished work just fine, I wasn't "performing live" for anyone. I did play the piano and organ as a kid, but didn't want anyone to hear me. Now that I no longer have that problem (hehehe), I can't wait to get my keyboard and start playing for everyone. I'll even make some videos and post them here when I get the keyboard.

Good luck everyone!
