I recently stumbled upon Sew Mama Sew’s May Giveaway Day event. There are literally hundreds of bloggers GIVING things away at random!!
Im only about a third of the way through the Handcrafted Items list, but I can tell you my RSS feeds keep growing! Not to mention all the attempts I am making at winning!
Its a wonderful idea. Honestly, its like strolling down some exotic market, peeking in everyones booths. Everyone is so welcoming, it has a real community feel. Ahhh the wonders of the internet!
Anyone can attempt to win – you just need to comment in most cases, and some kindly request an opinion or two. In general, you just need an email address to be contacted if you are a winner, but some do require an account with either Google or OpenID (blogger, wordpress, etc are OpenID accounts). Anyone can do it though, did i mention that? That means you!
I hope they do this annually. I wouldnt mind gifting something to a random stranger who thought it was cool. It sounds fun:)
