I've been thinking and thinking on this, and here's what I've decided- I'm going to have a giveaway right here on this blog as soon as I hit 100 blog followers. As I type this we're at 32, so we're like a third of the way there already. And once word of this gets out, it'll probably hit 100 in no time. SO... once this blog hits 100 followers, as soon as I realize it, I'll be drawing a name out of a hat. Well, actually I'll be assigning everyone a number, according to the order in which their names appear in my followers list, and I'll run a lotto through random.org to determine the winner. And if there are 200 followers on the day I notice that I've gone over the 100 mark, I will include everyone's name/number, so don't worry if you get here and see that the blog follower count is at #159 or something- you'll still be in the running :)
What's the prize? A Priority Mail flat rate box, size small, full of stuff. From my Etsy shops stuff, not just random stuff I found under my bed (unless you want that kind of stuff, idk). Stuff like soaps, lip balms, solid scents (all vegan, mind you), jewelry and accessories, and even maybe super secret sneak peeks at things yet to come. Whatever I can fit in that box- I'm thinking I won't even pad it... though that might be a bad idea, on second thought. I probably should pad it- it would stink to win a box fulla stuff only to have it arrive with half of it damaged :(
How to enter: Follow my blog, and leave a comment here (with some way to contact you, email, twitter, it doesn't matter, whatever you're comfortable posting here is fine by me) on this post. That's it! Of course, you can help speed the process along by tweeting about this giveaway, or emailing your friends, or posting it on Facebook, etc, etc, but I'm far too busy to do what some other people do with their giveaways, giving "extra" entries for tweeting, or for making purchases, or for posting links on blogs, or whatever. I simply don't have the time to verify all that stuff, so I'm keeping it simple. Now, if random.org draws the number which corresponds with your name, but you haven't commented here, I will choose another winner. Additionally, if the winner does not respond to my attempt to contact them (using the contact info they have posted here) within 3 days, I will choose another winner.Sorry, that's all part of my keeping it simple- I don't want to have to chase down any body so I can give them FREE STUFF.

No guarantee as to what you'll be getting, but hey, it's free, right? Good luck!
