Win An Autographed Copy of "My Life, Made Possible by Pop Culture"...

My Life, Made Possible by Pop Culture isn't quite Oprah-- or even Ellen-- but I'm certainly in the holiday spirit already, and I want to give back to my loyal readers for an even bigger and better year than ever before. So I will be offering a few holiday giveaways on this site in the next few weeks. Up first? Why, an autographed copy of my pop culture memoir, of course!
Featured in my gift guide this year, of course I would think that my book makes the perfect stocking stuffer for any TV fan and/or avid dating memoir reader. But if the little snippets offered on this blog over the past year haven't convinced you to spend the cash just yet, you can enter to win one now. I'll even include a personalized message, if you are so inclined. Hopefully it will be a moving enough read for you to want to share it with friends and family!

There are two ways to enter this giveaway:

1) Make sure you are following My Life, Made Possible by Pop Culture on Twitter. Then Tweet the following message:

Need a holiday gift for a TV lover in your life? @danielletbd's pop culture memoir is a perfect stocking stuffer!

Tweet that message between today and December 12th at noon to be entered to win. Each Tweet counts as a separate entry, so feel free to do so more than once (though not so much that you get marked as spam by your non-TV head followers!).


2) Feel free to leave a comment on this entry with the one show you grew up watching that had such a big influence on you, you would just have to include it in your own memoir.

Comments must be entered here by noon on Sunday the 12th in order to be counted, as well.

And stay tuned to this website and my Twitter account for more giveaways coming over the next few days!

The first show that comes to my mind when I think of myself as a kid, sitting in front of the TV, is The Cosby Show. My entire family watched it, I guess we all found a character we could relate to. I haven't watched it in a while and I still remember some episodes. I learned a lot at a young age, made me ask questions about U.S. history and ever since then, I love jazz...

While in High School, I became one of the founders of the official Silk Stalkings Fan Club. At the time I had never even seen the show, but really wanted to try out some desktop publishing. Interacting with the studio, getting to visit the set and being an extra on an episode increased my love of TV and my interest in finding out more about the behind the scenes working of he industry.

Cartoons and comedies mostly. You can track my growth and sense of humor by what I watched. Looney Toons, Animaniacs, Simpsons, Seinfeld. There's an old Russian saying about laughter through tears--it always helps if you can laugh.

I grew up watching a lot of different shows. Living in a place where barely any american shows would air, it was difficult to keep up! The one show that they would air regularly was F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and since I was 9 years old (11 years ago), I would watch the show and it because such a huge part of my day to day life! As more and more shows started airing where i lived, i would become a huge fan of all these shows. One tree hill, gilmore girls, the OC, dawson's creek, 24, prison break and the list goes on and on. Now i watch at least 50 shows, and it's becoming harder and harder to keep up with all of them; but i absolutely cannot choose what shows i should stop watching and that is why my friends call me the tv show addict!
