I tagged along to last year's One World One Heart event and had a blast - met some great people, found some great blogs and won some cool goodies. And now it's time for another round. So I got my ticket and am ready to ride...
Quick info for those that have no idea what I am talking about. Lisa from A Whimsical Bohemian blog hosts this event. It started in 2207 with roughly 85-90 participants - 2008 tripled that and last year had 911 participants from 28 countries!!!
I like how she puts it, "The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way." So while yes, there are prizes to be won, that is not the point. Opening your blog "house" and meeting others is. So come on in. The journey ends Feb 15th...but you are welcome back anytime. Like she says, "it's not meant for ... self promotion. Meaning that the mission of this event is to meet new people and them meet you, rather than be a commercial for each persons specific endeavors."
Have a look around - say hi & don't forget to leave a note saying you stopped in. (that is your "ticket"...no hoops, no red tape, just leave a comment to win...remember, you're here to mingle, not 'shop'). If you are having this event at your blog house, leave us a link so we can visit too. Oh, and since there is a prize...don't forget to leave some contact info if there is none in your profile....e-mail or shop is fine.
Anything else? Oh yeah - the winning ticket from this blog will get a $25 gift certificate from either one of my shops - Etsy or Artfire. I couldn't decide on just one bag since everyone has such different tastes. Heck, if you make the same stuff I do & would rather grab some goodies from my destash shop - that works too.
Thanks for stopping in!
