Yes, it's true. I'm having a giveaway.
The other day, the generous folks over at CSN Stores approached me to provide an item of my choice either for review and to keep, or to offer up as a gift to one of my loyal visitors by hosting a giveaway.
A review was out of the question. It's just not the kind of thing I'd like to do with my blog, but I thought it might be fun to be able to offer a gift to my readers, as a thank you for their many visits and warm comments.
Having never done this sort of thing before, I still wasn't sure. I hemmed and hawed and badgered their representative with a lot of questions, and finally decided to go for it.
I pored over a few pages of options for my giveaway. I saw cookware, dinnerware, wine_racks and gadgets. I was instructed to select something for up to $75 and eventually, I settled on an item which I hope my readers will like.
It's the Euroquest 3 quart stoneware casserole pictured below. You can read more details about it here.
Unfortunately for my many wonderful overseas visitors, this giveaway can only be shipped to Canadian and American addresses. I'm sorry about that restriction but if you can provide me with the Canadian or U.S. mailing address of a relative or friend (excluding yours truly), there's no reason why you can't be included.
Once the contest closes, I'll select one name by random draw.
Here's how to enter:
• The deadline for this contest is Wednesday, December 16 at midnight, Eastern Standard Time. You have until then to enter for this draw.
• Before the deadline, simply leave a comment on this post telling me the name of your all-time favourite song.
• Be sure to leave me your email address so that I can contact you if you should win. If you do win, please be prepared to provide me with a mailing address in Canada or the U.S. via email.
• If all goes as planned, the winner will be announced on or before the weekend.
• If I don't receive an email and/or comment reply from the winner within 7 days after that announcement, I'll redraw, and award it to the next name drawn.
The casserole will be sent out to the winner by the good people at CSN Stores.
Good luck to all who enter.
Now tell me.. what's your favourite song?
