I'm tired of making the same kind of giveaways all the time, it's really getting boring! So I decided to make something different this time.. a special challenge with a nice prize! :)
As you can see the challenge's title is TELL YOUR STORY.
Every person who wants to participate has to:
- follow my blog (or at least my fanpage)
- put the banner and link of this challenge on your blog (or your facebook page)
- and the most important thing.. write a short story (at least 500 words) from your life and send it to my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org with the e-mail's title 'tell your story' - it can be a simple e-mail message, or a scan of your handwritted story!
I don't care about what kind of story it will be and if you are a professional writer or not. I really don't care about your writing style - I'm not a teacher :) I just want to know you all better and want to feel while something reading your stories :)
After I will receive all stories I will make a nice book from them, so you have to be aware that your story will be on my bookshelf! I won't sell them or anything, I just want to have a nice blog keepsake. Every story from this book will be signed with your name, blog address and e-mail. I won't show these stories on my blog, except the 3 ones that will win.
Like I mentioned before there will be 3 prizes. One big prize - a dreamed notebook (value up to $50). The winner will choose if he/she wants an old journal, a planner or just a simple notebook and will choose how it will look like! :) There will also be two consolation prizes, small notebooks (value $10) for the second and third place.
I hope there will be some participants! I would love to have a thick book filled with stories from the blog world. You can write your story in polish or in english, it's up to you :)
You can send your stories to the 3rd August, I will pick the winners on the 13th August (I need to have some time to read everything!)
What inspired me to make this kind of challenge? Well.. I make notebooks.. a lot of them, and every time I make one I imagine it filled with my client's thoughts, adventures and dreams. I would really love to see these things in one of my journals in reality :)
I hope it is a good idea to make challenges like this.. If this edition will be successful I will make similar challenges in the future for sure! :)
P.S. If you are more into traditional writing and sending things, no problem :) You can send me your story to my home address, just ask me about it by e-mail first :)
Is this a good idea? Or I'm just being lame?!
Have a wonderful summer!
