My little ole blog turned TWO yesterday! It's funny to look back at that first post, when I had no real idea what I wanted to even blog about, and compare that to today. I feel like I may have actually grown a little over those two years. I feel comfortable sharing things here now and I feel like I've developed my voice -- y'all know I like to blog about my feelings here and for some reason, you keep coming back to read them and support me.
So I figured the best way to celebrate my blogiversary would be to do a little giveaway. It's a first for me and something I'm really excited about. I thought for awhile about what would be best to give. I wanted it to be something that men and women could get excited about and I wanted it to be something you could really use.
Since things got a little more fun around here when I first started snarking about what people wear out of season -- namely, boots! -- I ultimately decided on giving away a $50 gift card to Zappos! I hope that whoever wins it will use it towards a fun fall shoe purchase.
And I will say this: the gift card is coming out of my own pocket and is not sponsored by Zappos, but I would endorse them again and again and again. I find their customer service to be the best in all of retail. They often upgrade shipping to free overnight, so that you might even receive your shoes by the next afternoon without an additional charge. After I purchased my fall riding boots there last year, they put me on a VIP membership. VIP members get special access to certain sales and shoe collections, and always get free overnight shipping. I can only assume I was upgraded because I'm a good customer, and I love a company that rewards its customers so well!
Down to the important part. There are three ways to enter, and if you do all three, you'll be entered three times! (Magic, I know.) Here's how:
1. Leave a comment here describing the shoe at the top of your fall shopping list.
2. Like my blog on Facebook, which I promise to be using much more in the near future:
3. Make sure you follow me on Twitter and then tweet the following:
"I entered @SassyMarmalade's Blogiversary Giveaway for a $50 @Zappos Gift Card! http://www.sassymarmalade.com/2012/08/blogiversary-giveaway.html"
That's it! I'll be choosing a winner next Sunday, August 26.
And I also want to say this: I know, really, it's just a blog, but you guys all make me feel loved, every time you read, comment, encourage and commiserate with me. Thank you!
