the first giveaway~!

Dear readers,

My blog was created in April last year without a specific purpose, only for the sake of owning a blog.  When I started jotting down my thoughts regularly, I hadn’t paid much attention to getting any traffic to my blog.  Nonetheless, now I have a steady 40-something visitors even when I’m not writing anything for days.  I find this quite amazing because my blog doesn’t have a specific topic and my posts aren’t even in the same language (in other words, very user-unfriendly!).  Whatever the reason, I am ever so grateful for your support and interest. :)

On my to-do-in-2012 list, I had listed “do something altruistic with your blog”, so I decided to do something so many other bloggers have done already: a giveaway!  Brrr am I nervous!

On my birthday last year, I had received many pretty things that are useful as well.  But one present was very pretty but of no use to me.  It is a tiny shiny swarovski owl.  I was very happy and grateful to receive this unbearably cute gem, but I’m not quite sure what to do with it, and even feel anxious that I might not treat it well.

I’m not living in a permanent residence and I fear that this could go missing whilst my moving to places, so I want to give this away to a safe home.

So, if you want to be the proud owner of this little fella, don’t hesitate to participate!

What to do:

on the right side of this page, there is a facebook like button.  Press this and leave a comment below this post!  You can say anything you like, from your comments about this blog, to a random question about me, but if you haven’t got anything to say, just write “Long live jehenisus!”  :)  At the end of the week, I’ll number the entrants, do a random number generator, and contact the winner.  Be sure to leave a valid email address in the comment area so I can get in touch with you!  I will post worldwide at my own cost, since this is not massive.  You can reply to my email telling me your address once you find out you’re the winner.

Best of luck!

[Update: The giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to Christina!]

    I’d love to give this owl a safe home. It must be hard not having a permanent home.
    I am fascinated that you are a composer. It sounds exciting to me as I don’t have a musical bone in my body!

    • Haha thanks, but it’s like any other job in the sense that you keep doing one thing, have a bit of talent, and like what you’re doing (hopefully for everyone who has a job?) I guess one thing that’s different is that you don’t earn a living..haha!

  41. cute giveaway! count me in! :)

    I just have to say, I was looking at possibly buying this owl for my daughter’s first birthday just last week. Her B-day is Feb 4th, just two days after mine and has had an owl nursery theme since birth. I thought it would be cool to buy her one collectible owl on each birthday, so she’ll have a collection by the time she’s old enough to appreciate it. Just thought I’d share :-)

    • Wow, I really hope you win this, but I do have to be fair and do the random number generation! :( Good luck, in any case! :)

  81. Deb

    What a great blog!! A fantastic idea – you have inspired me to start my own blog. I collect owls and may start my own personal blog beginning with the storues behind each owl. The first one was from my grandmother (she was born in 1901) and this became a prized possession – she passed away in 1986 and I have collected one owl every year since then in her memory. It’s a hoot :) and a joy
    Thank you for your blog. Deb

    • Wow that sounds like a great blogging idea! I find blogs with very specific subjects extremely intriguing. Do let me know by reply or email when yours is all set up. It would be great fun for me to visit!
      I have a few websites I visit quite often because I like the way they are confined to a single idea, and you always know what to expect.
      I hope those were good references for you.
      Take care! :)
