100 Followers and 5,000 Views on Blogspot Giveaway!

I really loved blogging with Wordpress. It's a great, content-oriented platform, and it's so convenient that sometimes I wish I was still on it. However, the main reason I left it for Blogger and the reason I'm still here is because of the community of it; I love the "follow" option. I love being able to link to the blogs I'm following directly from my main page. I love being able to see the content being produced by people who like my work by looking at the blogs linked on the profiles of my followers. It's great, and the switch has been worth it to me.

It looks like it's been worth it to all of you, too! In the just-over two months since I switched platforms, I am proud to announce that I have just passed 100 Followers and 5,000 views!! Yaaaaay!! Thank you all so much - it's for you guys that I'm doing this, and it's great to see that it's being viewed and appreciated by everyone. That's why I decided that it's time for me to give back to all of you!

I've put together this sweet little giveaway, filled with fun things that I've featured or talked about in the posts I switched over from Wordpress or the original content I've generated for Her Lumpiness. The gift basket includes:

♥A tin of my favorite tea by Harney & Sons
♥A screen-printed T-shirt from my favorite local label, I Do Declare
♥A $15 discount voucher for Ophanim, the maker of my custom buckram bonnet
♥A level one Lolita Survival Kit
♥A set of false lashes
♥A handmade Valentine-style postcard from me

Around $40 worth of goods can be yours for the affordable price of, well, free! So, how do you win? That's simple too - all you have to do is link back to *this post* in up to any three locations of your choice, meaning you can repost it once, twice, or three times, but no more! It can be your personal blog, a Facebook status, a tweet on Twitter, tumbling it via Tumblr, or anything else you can think of. I do ask, however, that you don't spam the main lolita communities - I don't need the mods getting upset with me! Any posts to egl or any of its subsidiaries will not count as a submission. If you wanted to add a tasteful link at the bottom of, say, an outfit post on daily_lolita or something along those lines, that would be acceptable, though! Then, all you have to do is comment on this post with proof of your link (in the case of protected Facebook updates or friends-only Livejournal posts, I will accept links to a screenshot of the post including any comments received on it). I'll then tally up the total received and assign every entry a number. The winning entry will be picked via a random number generator. Depending on the amount of interest I receive, I might be interested in doing a few smaller packages as well.

Also, heads up! From now until the end of June, Carolyn is offering a 10% discount to all Lumpian viewers on all Ophanim Gothique purchases on Etsy! Just enter the discount code "HeyBoPeep" at the end of your order and receive 10% off the total excluding shipping. Hurry! The offer expires on July 1st, 2010!

The drawing begins today, now, June 2nd, 2010. It will run for three weeks, and no entries will be accepted after Monday, June 28th. Good luck everyone, and I'm so excited to see who wins!!


  1. Dont take offince to this because its an awesome giveaway, but I know I personal dont have the time or resources (more then a blog and twitter) to post to three places and most giveaways bigger (like $100 worth of things) then this don't make you do that. I think you should do a comment entry or link on your blog and then make others optional. I think if you do that you will get more entrys and more new followers.

  2. @Sophia: Thanks for the feedback! However, what I meant by that is that three is the maximum reposts per contestant, not the minimum. You can post it to one, two, or three resources, whichever you have available to you. I hope that's better, and sorry for the confusion!

    The reason I chose three resources is because I was basing the giveaway on the example Victoria Suzanne set here, because it is a similar dollar amount that is coming from my own pocket, for a similar reason (celebration of followers):

  3. Oh this is so lovely. I will go off and find places to post now!!
