Every so often I get offered something to give away. Typically the giveaway requires the reader to jump through a hoop. I don't like to make you jump through hoops (oooh, unless they're ON FIRE! That's AWESOME!)---but I don't like to say "no" to free stuff on your behalf, either. "Oh, no," I see myself saying with a dismissive wave of my hand. "They don't need anything. They're fine."
So if the giveaway looks good to me, and if the hoop seems easy and not too tricky (or it's ON FIRE), I sometimes do it---and this is one of those times. So if you're all "OMG HATE THESE," it's safe to skip, because that's all we're doing today. Item one on the agenda: the giveaway pack. Item two on the agenda: the hoop.
The Giveaway Pack:
Bunnytail Outdoor Blanket ($48 retail value) AND a set of Kipiis Bib Clips ($25 retail value) AND a CARES Airline Travel Restraint ($75 retail value)
These things are offered in the hopes that you will check out a site called Daily Grommet. It's a site that finds clever thingies like the three in the giveaway pack (the travel restraint is basically a 1-pound folding child's car seat for airplanes, which, OMG). You're supposed to click over there, browse around a little, and then come back here (HERE, not THERE) and leave a comment saying what you like about the site, or what you'd change, or any feedback/reactions/suggestions. In exchange for being a little feedback machine, you get entered into a drawing for the giveaway pack---and the random number generator is blind to whether you were complimentary or critical. And remember: leave the comment HERE. On THIS post. Before Thursday, January 15th, at noon U.S. Pacific time.
