Bloggy Giveaways

Shannon of Rocks In My Dryer and Bloggy Giveaways is having another Bloggy Giveaway carnival. There is a lot of fantastic stuff going. Things like an Insignia® Pilot 4GB Video MP3 Player. And Home Organization Books. And lots of jewelery, books, craft stuff, and books. Can you tell which ones I've been entering? There are CURRENTLY more than 850 entries, with at least another 2 days to go!

There is just one problem with this giveaway. Because there are mostly people in the US who are on the net, and many of them have limited budgets, they've limited where their shipping goes to. Which means that us poor Aussies have to sort through 850+ entries to get all excited about the item being given away only to realise that it is open only to those in the USA. And let's face it, only I have enough time to do crazy things like that.

So here is my solution! I'm having a giveaway too! I'm giving away 3 Shirley Temple DVDs. Our Little Girl, The Little Princess, and I'll Be Seeing You. (The links are all to videos but I am giving DVDs).



You can enter if you fit into one of two categories:

1. You live in Australia. Now, I'm really fuzzy on geography, and as a result I'm thinking that Malaysia and Singapore are in fact part of Australia. So Caro, Yi Mei and Yi Peng, you guys can enter! You don't need to have a blog if you fit in this category.

2. You live anywhere BUT you had a giveaway on your own blog that was open to International folks. Like me. Recipocity. Please leave a link to your blog - the giveaway page - so that all of us here can enter into your own competition.

To enter, leave a comment, your blog details if applicable, your email (etc) if not. Winnie, do not post anonymously. That goes for you too Beau. Leave your names!

That's it. On Sunday evening My Time I will be drawing this. I'll use a random number generator.

Everyone can enter my giveaway! I was feeling a bit sorry for you international folks, and really I think it would fun to have something I made in use on the other side of the world!! So if you would like some handmade coasters and some yummy hot chocolate pop on over! :)

Jennifer said...

Great idea...I agree...there are too many that are shipping only to US but it is expensive it items get too heavy so I understand their reasoning as well! But....smart old me...left it open to everyone so please let everyone know they can visit my giveaways at www.veryfullquiver.blogspot.com. There are several and here are the direct links:

I don't have a blog, however, I'm sure if you just try to remember carefully-you will remember that Tennesse is right below New Zealand on the border of Singapore. (I know, I'm shameless!) Anyway, I would love to show these to my niece, so I thought I'd give it a try! Enter me, please. ernestsgirl82@aol.com

I LOVED the little princess when I was growing up and think this is the neatest gift. I haven't thought of Shirley Temple in a long time. Thanks for hosting. ; )
