12 days of Christmas – the BIGGEST giveaway I have ever done
LISTEN UP, Y’ALL.
I am launching 12 days of Christmas this year – the biggest giveaway I have ever hosted on my blog. So far, you can expect giveaways from Spartan Race, BattleFrog, DirtInYourSkirt, XMan Race, GORUCK and more.
[You will need to enter each of the 12 giveaways separately (this way you will only win the things you actually WANT to win)].
FREE race entries and FREE gear.
Every single day.
For 12 days, starting on December 25th.
Why would I do this?
You see, earlier this year I was chatting with a race director friend, who mentioned how much work he actually gets done on Facebook. We both laughed. It IS true.
In our sport, many connections, stories and opportunities are indeed happening under the blue roof of this social network. Most of blog traffic comes from Facebook as well.
Yet, realizing that also made me miss the OTHER side of communication. The deeper longer conversations that are happening via email – the closest we have to snail mail these days.
So, I finally started a newsletter this year – something more personal and tangible than a fleeting poke on Facebook.
With this initiative, I want to do two things:
Increase my reach via email, continuing to develop deeper connections with my readers
Promote and support the race series, gear, products and people in the industry that I dearly love.
Since FB is STILL the hub for many of you, I’ll be sharing the direct giveaway links and announcing the winners there. [It will also prevent me from cluttering the blog and allow me to continue focusing on content].
Oh, and as Steve Jobs would say:
“One more thing…”.
I found out last week that I have been nominated for the Best OCR Blogger in 2015 by the MudRunGuide. This is a category for the blogger who “provided the best coverage & insights throughout the year”.
I am flattered and honored to have been nominated. I’d love if you took a moment to vote. Consider this your Christmas present to me. 🙂
So, please take a moment, and vote (you can vote for every category or JUST the best OCR blogger). The voting is open until December 23rd. Your support means the world to me.
