I have a really fun game planned for my BlogPaws swag giveaway this year. And to make it extra special, I’m asking you to help me create the game board while getting a little link love and having a chance to win some great pet swag. Sound fun? Then read on.
Meet Your Match
After I’ve returned from BlogPaws and caught my breath, I’m going to post baby pictures. No, not mine. Yours.
We’ll match the pet picture (baby picture if you have one) to the baby picture of our favorite bloggers (or microblogger for people who post on Twitter and Facebook). I’ll include links where you can find the adult pictures to search for clues to help you make the match.
The person who makes the most correct matches wins.
Anyone can play. But people who send pictures in will get a small edge since they’ll get at least one correct entry by matching their own picture to their pet’s.
But I need help. I need at least some of you to send your pictures so I can set up the game board.
Who’s Matching the Matchers
To contribute your pictures to the game, you must have a current picture of yourself somewhere on your blog, Twitter, or Facebook account by the start of the game. Then I need you to send me the following:
- Your name (or online alias)
- A picture of you at younger than six years old
- A picture of your pet who appears on your blog, Twitter profile, or Facebook page (a baby picture if you have one).
- A link to your blog, Twitter profile, or Facebook page where contestants can find the pictures to give them clues for matching your baby picture to your pet’s baby picture (or adult picture if they came to live with you as a grown up).
Send the above to me at SomethingWagging(at)gmail(dot)com—substitute @ for (at) and . for (dot)—with the subject line: “match game.”
I must have your pictures and information by midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, June 26.
Pam and Honey Set an Example
Don’t quite get how this will work? I’ll show you.
Even if our pictures were surrounded by a dozen others, you’d probably find it pretty easy to match us together. I don’t want to make it too difficult so feel free to keep historical context in your pictures like I did (it’s obvious pretty quickly that I’m older than my 20s based on the cars in the background) or leave clues when you save the name for your picture. We want to have fun but don’t want to make anyone’s brain hurt.
What Are You Waiting For?
Send your pictures in today for a chance to win a big bag o’swag that will include treats, toys, chewies and more.
And please spread the news far and wide. The more people who join in the more fun we’ll have.
500th Post Scavenger Hunt Winner
And before we start on our next fun contest, I need to congratulate Rumpy T. Drummond of the fabulous blog, RumpyDog.com. Rumpy won the $25 Amazon gift card.
Just a tip, Rumpy, you might want to hurry up and spend that gift card before Jen, June Buggie, or anyone else in the family gets their hands on it.
So will you be sending in a picture for the game? Or if you blog with “a paper bag over your head” in the words of the witty Georgia Little Pea, will you be stopping by to guess?
