Celebrating Two Years

kyle steed two-year blogiversary It's hard to believe I've been at this blogging thing for two years now. So many things have changed since then. I can remember the only way of finding new people to connect with was searching through people's blogrolls. Now we have twitter. And the content I write about has had a dramatic change from my very first post about The Darjeeling Limited. These days it's geared more toward design.

The Giveaway

Last year for my one-year blogiversary I gave away a 3-pack of Field Note Notebooks. It was a huge success. So this year I am happy to be giving away a Flip Mino HD (courtesy of the awesome guys at Firehost) with two available custom skins designed by yours truly, that one lucky winner will get to choose from.

I thought that since I've recently gotten in to video blogging (excuse my absence) this would be the perfect gift to give. And who knows, maybe it will help you break in to the video blogging scene.

Here's a preview of the two custom skins:

one year blogiversary

In light of my upcoming one-year anniversary for my blog, October 13, I am offering up the chance to win the wonderful FIELD NOTES THREE-PACK for free to one lucky person. No shipping and handling, no call now and get two for the price of one gimmicks. Just a simple, straight-talkin' free gift to give back to this community that I've been a part of for the past year.

Why, you may ask, am I offering just three plain notebooks? That's a valid question. And to answer your question, upon verification from a google search about "one-year anniversaries" I found that the traditional gift has something to do with paper. Whether that be in the form of a notebook, a love letter, stationary, you get the idea. So I thought, perfect, since I'm a designer and most people who visit my site would be more apt to be a designer, or at least interested in design. This would be the perfect gift to keep your ideas close at hand in a stylish way.

The contest will run until next Friday, October 17. All you need to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment below with the best reason you can muster on why you'd like these notebooks. Note: spam and ad links do not count. Also, don’t forget to provide a valid email address in the input field, otherwise I won’t be able to notify you.

Thanks and good luck.
