Dear awesome people,
The 3rd Annual Book Blogger Love-A-Thon is quickly approaching, perhaps a bit quicker than I am prepared for but I’m excited for it nonetheless! Okay, maybe excited is a bit of an understatement for me considering I’m currently at the giggling, squealing, voice-can-only-be-heard-by-dogs phase. Obviously this event is near and dear to my heart and I have been absolutely blown away by the support and excitement surrounding the event by bloggers and authors already.
If this is the first time you’ve heard of the event, let me take a quick moment to explain it to you. I started the Love-A-Thon as a way for bloggers and authors to share the love. I wanted everyone to be able to take a day or two to learn about new blogs and spend time visiting some of the oldies but goodies; a day where bloggers and authors can come together to share the word about their favorite book blogs and have a lot of fun. Throw in a few mini challenges, twitter chats, and lots of giveaways, and you’ve got an event that is just as much fun to plan as it is to participate in. (If you want to learn even more about the event, or sign up!, you can check out this post here or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Now I suppose I’ve come to the part of this post where I actually ask for the help, the part I have actually been kind of dreading. I ask you to please bear with me because I absolutely LOATHE asking for favors. I’m totally one of those people who carry in 500 lbs of groceries and uses her feet to open doors when her hands are full because I just can’t stand asking people to help me out. But I really want this year to be super special for the Love-A-Thon and all of its participants. They are spending two whole days tweeting about, sharing, commenting and loving on their favorite blogs and Alexa and I would really like to give them a little love in return. We’ve already had a few gracious, amazing donations (seriously it was enough to make me giggle and cry at the same time. That’s serious people), and we have been compiling prizes over time, BUT we are still accepting more from now until the event starts on February 15th. Even if you aren’t able to participate in the event, you can still share your love for bloggers by donating towards the giveaway. Swag, gift cards, and bookish prizes are all welcome! If you would like to donate or you have questions or concerns regarding the event, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Thank you so much for all of your love and support <3
A very grateful little blogger
