You know how we all triumphantly displayed our “I DID IT!” buttons for NaBloPoMo? Dude, I need something to proclaim my sense of victory that I made it through the whole list. Of course, sadly, the Mr. Linky had to be turned off because some spammers ruined it for everyone. If that hadn’t happened, I bet the list would have broken 1,000. Crazy! Now, no, I didn’t enter every single one – some of the giveaways were Canadian-specific, or for little girly items, or for stores I’d never heard of – but still, that’s a lot of entries and a lot of blogs visited.
I could have finished it even faster, but I stopped to check out quite a few blogs along the way. Something about a few of them just grabbed me – the layout or the colors, the header, the writing style of the giveaway post – and I had to go read more. And I bookmarked 28 sites! A few of those are stores or Etsy shops, but the majority are blogs. After I spend a little more quality time with them, I’ll be sure to share here so you can go enjoy new friends, too.
