Let’s see how many of you are still out there reading….
The other day, with Rhinebeck looming in my mind, I started thinking, yet again, how much I miss my blog and my community. I thought to myself – you should have a contest. You used to have really fun good contests! Why not have another one? You could really jumpstart the blog!
Enter fate, via an email from Carrie at Onlineshoes.com! A while back I blogged about a pair of Dansko clogs that I bought from Onlineshoes.com that were perfect for my handknit socks. (See them here!) Apparently, this blog post did not go undetected by Onlineshoes.com and they came to me with a proposition. Would I be interested in telling all of you about their new contest? In exchange, they would give me a $100 gift certificate to Onlineshoes.com to give away to one of you! I emailed Carrie back. “Let me clarify – I mention your contest on my blog, and you’ll give me a $100 gift certificate to give away?” She wrote back YES! I said – SIGN ME UP!
Enter for a chance to win one of these!
Enter their contest here. It’s open to US residents only and there is no purchase necessary to play! The contest runs through November 10, 2008. GOOD LUCK!
NOW – for MY CONTEST!
One of the things I loved about this opportunity was how it coordinates with the end of Socktoberfest! Unfortunately I did not knit myself a new pair of socks this Socktober, but I know many of you did. What better way to celebrate than with a new pair of shoes! But I’m not just giving away a $100 gift certificate to Onlineshoes.com, I’m also giving away yarn for your next sock adventure! A $25.00 gift certificate to Blue Moon Fiber Arts for your very own pair of Socks That Rock!
Fortunately or unfortunately, this lucky grand prize winner must live in the United States – basically because Onlineshoes.com only ships within the US. BUT! I can’t let all you non-US readers get away without a chance to win as well so I will choose a SECOND winner, at random, and that winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to Blue Moon! YAY!
What do you have to do to win?
Leave me a comment. Tell me about your favorite pair of shoes ever. Or your favorite sock pattern. Or just say hello and tell me that you miss me. 😉 I don’t care. Please only leave one comment. I will choose a GRAND PRIZE WINNER at random – after verifying that they live in the US, I will forward them on to Onlineshoes.com so they can claim their $100 gift certificate and send them the Blue Moon gift certificate. If the first winner I pick happens to live outside the US, they will automatically win the second prize of a Blue Moon gift certificate. I will then continue to pick winners at random until I find someone who lives in the US. If the first winner I choose, at random, lives in the US, then I will choose a second winner, at random, and they will win the second prize regardless of where they live. Comments will be accepted through 11:59 PM EST Wednesday, November 5th!
So. Leave me a comment. C’mon. You know you want to!
[ETA: Please note that I have absolutely nothing to do with Onlineshoes.com or Blue Moon Fiber Arts other than I have patronized them in the past. I don’t work for them. I will receive NOTHING in return for promoting them – not even free shipping. 😉 ]
