The One Year Blogoversary/Follower Appreciation Giveaway (International!)

Blogoversary/Follower Appreciation Giveaway!


In just a few days (on March 21st), my blog will be a year old! (If we want to get all technical, I started it a year ago last September but I didn't start to do anything until March 21st. So I'm considering it the true blogoversary date.) It's so exciting for so many reasons. One: I usually don't stick with stuff for that long and end up moving on to something new within months. Two: I can't believe how awesome the community is, not just book bloggers but people who just follow and love books and also non-book-bloggers. Three: Everything that I have been able to do makes me feel accomplished in a new way I've never had before. Four: I can't believe how many followers I have gotten thus far! It's amazing all around. ^_^

In any case...this calls for a celebration on this blog. And to celebrate, you will be able to read a nice recap of my thoughts: on blogging, on writing, on reading, on my blog itself, etc. on the day of my Blogoversary. But, what you're really interested in is this: THE GIVEAWAY!!! And unlike my other giveaways, this one is going to be awesomer. That's right AWESOMER. Why?

THERE WILL BE TWO PRIZES AND TWO WINNERS!!!

You heard me. TWO! And what will the two prizes be in this giveaway? I'm glad you asked...

~*~

Prize #1: ONE book of choice under $15 from The Book Depository


~Anything you want, as long as it's under $15.~

~*~

Prize #2: Book Swag Pack


~Featuring some really cute bookmarks (including a Hunger Games one!) and other goodies (I have a bunch of little Twilight pictures about the size of a business card that can be used as bookmarks--I'm showing 6 of them, but you'll probably get more).~

~*~

What do you guys think? Are they good prizes? Do you want to win one of them?

Here's the official rules/guidelines for the giveaway:

1). You must be a follower.
2). You must be over 15 years old.
3). This is open to international followers. (Only if The Book Depository will ship to you; please check this link to see if you are eligible.)
4). This contest runs from March 18th to March 31st (two weeks).
5). You can gain extra entries by "liking" my Facebook page, following me on Twitter @Jess_Sankiewicz, commenting on this post, and/or blogging about this giveaway.
6). Winners will be selected at 12:01 a.m. on April 1st via Rafflecopter random selection.

Thank you to everyone who has made this blogging experience one of the coolest things I've chosen to do in my life. You are all appreciated for following and commenting and just being awesome. I love you all! <3

XOXO~Jessica

  1. Congrats! I, too, have a short attention span and was beyond surprised when a year passed and I was still blogging. I find something interesting to do, and then I run it into the ground until I'm bored, hahaha.

    If I were to win the book choice I'd chose Illuminate by Aimee Agresti. It sounds really unusual and interesting.

    Congrats again, and thanks for the giveaway!
