Sharin’ the Love – Swag Giveaway Contest

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.

Blog 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….

  1. I’ll play along! I like the new layout, I’ve had my site on WordPress for awhile now and really like all the options they have. Keep up the good work!


      Thx Shawn – yeah the choices are unending on the visual front for WordPress – almost overwhelming at times. I definitely like the format a lot better than my old BLogspot engine.

    I agree, the trip would have been nice; but free swag is just as nice (in it’s own right). You’ll be happy to know, I’m taking Caleb on his first trip to the coastal area to fish in a few weeks. I’m really looking forward to it, and teaching my little man how to fish. 🙂
    Hope you are well my friend!

  3. I’ll play! And I’ll RT the link, too. Extra karma & such!

    The new look is pretty swell, too!

    Swag is always good! Especially fishpond nippers.
    Just found your blog through twitter.

    Enjoying the blog and love the new look.
