In Honey’s First Peek at BlogPaws, I published this picture of my sweet girl posing with two enormous bags of ambivalence and tortured ethics–some people call it swag. I call it neuroses-inducing, plastic cr*p made by Chinese workers being paid pennies.
There were some notable exceptions–which will be shortly on their way to some lucky winners. Along with some cheap, plastic cr*p that will probably be fun and useful to someone who is right now saying out loud, “Ok,Pam, chill out. This isn’t world peace we’re talking about. It’s a swag bag for dogssake.”
What’s in the giveaway
It’s actually two giveaways.
- One bag of bling will go to a small to medium dog.
- Another bag will go to a medium to large dog.
Each swag bag holds an assortment of dog-related magazines, the always-needed poopie bags in tidy and cute containers, toys, snacks, and premium food samples. There’s an appropriately sized Kong toy in each bag–one of my favorite, made-in-America dog products.
I used my best judgment but I trust the winners will look items over carefully to make sure they’re appropriate for your pet before you hand them over.
How to win the giveaway
I’ve entered giveaways where I’ve been asked to comment, subscribe, friend, tweet, and stand on my head for a chance to win.
I understand what bloggers are doing. It takes creativity to increase your followers and subscribers so you can meet your goals. And those bloggers are doing smart marketing. Good for them.
I like to keep things simple. So here’s how you can enter the giveaway:
- Leave a comment below between now and Wednesday, September 7 at midnight EDT.
- In your comment tell me one thing your dog has done to deserve the swag bag. No, a good answer won’t increase your chance of winning but it will make me happy.
- Also tell me if you’d like to win the small-medium dog bag or the medium-large dog bag.
- If you want to be entered in both giveaways, you’ll need to leave two comments.
- I’ll draw one winner for each bag at random and announce their name on Friday, September 9, 2011.
The contest is open to anyone, no matter where you live. I’ve already warned my husband that if we have to send this hefty bag o’swag half way around the world, to expect beans for supper. But heck, it’s only money.
And no, you don’t have to become a fan of Something Wagging on Facebook. Or follow us on Twitter at S_Wagging. You don’t have to subscribe to get links to new posts by email or add my RSS feed to your reader. None of those things will give you more chances to win.
But if you find Something Wagging fun, I hope you’ll do all those things anyway. So we can get to know each other better.
So why are you still reading? Go leave your comment. And good luck!
[Besides receiving the goodies from the BlogPaws 2011 swag bag, I have received nothing else from any companies whose products are seen or mentioned here.] Update: You can enter to win either the big dog treat bag or the small dog treat bag. But you are only eligible to win once. If you win a second prize, I will draw a new name for the second prize.
