Tweaking the Monthly Giveaway

I am trying to gather as much feedback from everyone as I can regarding the monthly giveaway to make sure it is appealing to as many people as possible.  I’ve currently got a poll on Facebook to sort out which item(s) to remove from the giveaway.  If you head over there, you can vote for your favorite item from the bunch to ensure that it retains its place in the giveaway.  Also, if you have not done so yet, make sure to sign up for the newsletter and giveaway, the June winner will be announced this weekend.

In addition to culling the current group of items, I want to replace them with some new stuff to keep it fresh.  I’ve been contemplating something like the Pilot Varisty or Lamy Safari Fountain Pen, a Rhodia Web Notebook, or maybe even a nicer fountain pen.  There is obviously a certain total cost of the giveaway package that I have to stay within to keep expenses reasonable, so if I add something more expensive, I would likely have to reduce the number of total items in the package.  I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on what you would like to see added to the giveawya in the comments below, and dont forget to go vote in the poll for the item you most want to see kept as part of the package.

I hope everyone has a great July 4th weekend!

    Just started following your blog a few weeks ago, but I’m loving it! A very fun read.

    Facebook always confuses me for some reason, but I *think* I voted correctly!
    I love the idea of a Lamy Safari Fountain Pen…it falls into that category of “would love to have one, but can’t justify the purchase right now”. Never tried the Rhodia line of notebooks, so that might be nice.

    Keep up the fine blog!

    Swapping out the Papermate Biodegradable Pen for the Safari or some other fountain pen would be really cool :)

    I have fount that the varsity fountain pens/ Vpens , run out extremely quick… maybe do a fountain pen that is refillable;e and we can but refills at jetpens if we wish… :) plus I have v pens, they actually got me into fountain pens since they didn’t cost me an arm and a leg to try them… I am have tried a few more, and I would love to win a different fountain pen… just my opinion.

    when I was in the fourth grade we went from writing with a pencil to the fountain pen, we were not allowed to write with a ball point pen. I have a pilot fountain pen disposable I like it. I do not have Lamy Safari Fountain Pen, a Rhodia Web Notebook but it would be nice to have a quality fountain pen. Thank you for the opportunity to win this. Nancy

    I think the items for the giveaway should be  unusual items we would not buy out of necessity. things like pens only available in Japan or Sweden, or notebooks usually sold in France but rarely here. Or new products that have not yet hit the stores.

    I like the package as it is, but a Safari would be a cool addition.  Then again, a Rhodia pad might be usable by more people.

    A lot of folks I know love the Safaris – I have even given them as gifts.  Tough call on that vs. the Rhodia . . .

    I would also like the Safari or the Rhodia. A nicer fountain pen would be nice but I don’t know what kind. lol

    The Lamy is really nice. It really depends on your costs. An interesting comparison would be how many new followers you get with the Lamy vs. the others.

    Thanks for all of the great comments and suggestions everyone!  Between this and the Facebook survey, I think I’ve got enough info to put something together that improves the giveaway.  Now I just need to plan it all out and get it set up.

    I would suggest to go for a costly thing, even though the package may then contain less items.
