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:

The winners will then have three days to contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
