Recently I participated in a blog contest sponsored by Trout Unlimited and The Outdoor Bloggers Network. The grand prize winners (there were two) won a trip to the Tongass National Forest in Alaska. See my entry here
I won’t lie – I really REALLY wanted to win this trip, but it wasn’t in the cards this time. I did enjoy participating, and took away some winnings in other ways.
I learned about the Tongass, which honestly I had never even heard of. I picked up a bunch of new blogs to follow from gifted writers who share similar passions to my own. I also won a little bit of swag, which I am planning to pay forward.
Recently I moved my blog to WordPress, and like most bloggers, I want to look at my blog stats and see that people are reading my posts. So to help get the word out on my recent move, I am going to hold a little contest and give away my Tongass swag.
Included in this giveaway is a Fishpond Microtrash container, a Fishpond aluminum clipper, a spool of Rio 3X Power flex tippet, and a few stickers thrown in because you can never have enough stickers.
To be entered in the drawing, just add a comment to this entry. Next Saturday I will draw the entered names from a hat, and announce the winner.
I know – these are huge prizes, so please control yourselves. No ballot stuffing please. Then again, it will help my blog stats, so….
