so, almost exactly a year ago, i did my first blog giveaway.
i loved doing it.
so much, that i did another one.
and now, i haven't done one since.
what's up with that, you ask??
well, giving stuff away for free is a lot easier when you have money :)
no, but really, it does take effort.
it takes thought.
it takes planning.
and i just haven't thought or planned much in the last few months when it comes to my blog.
selfish, i know.
well, today, i was reading my friend joni's blog here. you see, she's doing a giveaway when her followers list gets up to 50.
i thought that was so cool.
you see, i get a lot of people reading my blog.
not really sure why... i mean, i just ramble off about frozen yogurt and how much i love sugar, and how cute little toddling one-year-olds are...and my crazy obsessions with t.v. and random other confessions that i probably shouldn't be telling the cyber-world. but i do. and you keep comin' back. and so i keep on bloggin'.
i could be a little more humble and say that i only blog to journal....and that i don't care about comments or followers or stuff like that.
but saying that just wouldn't be true.
because i like the comments. and i like knowing that people are following me.
again, selfish, i know.
but i like feeling warm fuzzies each time i read what one of you has to say. and i like how i feel knowing that another one of you is following my silly, sometimes pathetic, but completely worthwhile existence. makes me feel loved. and makes me wanna give back to you. hence, the giveaway idea.
here's what i'm thinkin':
i'm going to run with joni's idea....
you see that little button over there ------------------>
the one that says "FOLLOW" ??
well, click on it.
c'mon you know you want to.
cuz here's the deal:
if my followers go up to 50, i'll do a giveaway on my blog.
and every time my followers go up another 50, i'll do another one.
and another one.
why, you ask?
because i want to reward you for being here.
kind of how a puppy-owner rewards her puppy for doing a cool trick with a yummy bone.
except, i'm not talkin' a pansy-puppy-dog-bone-treat-giveaway...
no no my friends.
i'm thinkin that i'm going to start a segment called "marci's favorites" (inspired by my friend Oprah's favorites) and i'll giveaway a little goodie-bag that includes some of those favorite items.
i think so.
i hope you think so too.
but i can't get givin' until i know you're there.
so, go on, follow me. :)
let me know your thoughts!
until then, i'll be excitedly planning your giveaway goodie bag.
