We are currently planning and organizing my (Tim's) first World Concert Tour/ World Blog Tour 2014, and while doing so I got this cool idea that we can establish at MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG too. (I thought why give it to the world if we can give it to you too?)
(getting excited?? Good!!
tatata!!! >> Beginning this month (January, and counting), you can win great prizes every month throughout the year 2014! Did I mention you can win something? Gosh!! Must be your lucky day.
Here are the T&C:
At the end of each month we will use the service of random.org to draw a ... random number (yep!) and the commenter with that number wins what we declared as the prize at the beginning of the month! (Every member's comment in every month has a system number from 1 to x (with x depending on how many comments there are), and every published comment/question/feedback/whatever on any page counts (Periodical or public), except spam of course (but that won't get published anyway, ha!). Any member/subscriber who has filled in the dog's details (under 'update subscription preferences') can win!
To comply with giveaway/contest laws, the lucky winner must agree to post a reply/"thank you" under the notification post (only a simple message, no personal details, unless you wish), so that we can prove that we actually hand out the declared prizes to a site member/subscriber (in case we get an inspection).
To start with, let's say the first prize is one of my own books, but then throughout the year you can win other items too - basically from wherever my blog tour leads me to, whatever they have to offer. Or alternatively an Amazon voucher if they have nothing great to offer. Can be anything really, but I'll make sure that it's something valuable to have for a dog lover/German Shepherd owner (it won't be a Porsche Cayenne though where you could transport your GSD in the back, sorry). Rather something I or the inviting blogger can afford to give away without going personally bankrupt, ha!
Repeat: Every month a prize, yes!! Plus, in addition a super prize at the end of the year 2014 for the best comment (this can't be random, it will be subjective). If the inviting partner is well off, we may sometimes even draw several prize winners - both monthly and at year end. Will see.
Now, for January (half gone) and February (starting soon) let's start this way: Since no one but you knows if you own one of my books already, the prize drawn at the end of this month (31 Jan midnight) shall be... one of my books at your choice (see on the left), yeah! This month an ebook (so that I can get used to the procedure, it's all new for me too, knees are wobbly).
So, you may be facing a dog problem and you post a question, and ... you get even rewarded for that!! What more could we wish for on this planet, hm?
Update: What do we do if the winner doesn't claim the prize within ONE WEEK? We will draw a new winner, shall we? Yes.
Questions? Comments? Please post below. Yep, this page counts as well, every page.
Thanks and good luck!!!
