(The winner of this giveaway has been contacted, and the contest is now closed! Congrats Sarah Kate!)
We’ve been looking forward to today’s post for weeks, not just because of the giveaway but because of what it represents.
As you can see in the photos, Easy Canvas Prints recently sent us a gorgeous 16 X 20 canvas of a picture I took of artichokes a few years ago. We love it. It hangs in our kitchen, just to the right of the sink and cabinets, and we see it every time we’re sitting on the living room sofa or working on our laptops, making us pretty sure that we’re going to add two more similar canvases along the same wall sometime soon.
Easy Canvas not only sent us a canvas, but they’re also giving one away to one of you—maybe to turn into a Father’s Day gift or to blow up a family photo or to decorate your own kitchen with a food-centric theme, whatever you want.
And to enter, here is all we ask: go comment on another blog, any blog, telling them something you genuinely like about one of their posts or about the site in general, and then come back here and link to it in a comment.
To give you an example:
I loved reading this recent post at Art and Lemons because of the way Nikki tells a story, because of the beautiful light in her photos and because of the way she is celebrating the art of film. So I went and commented at her site and told her so. If I were entering this contest, I’d copy the link to my comment, come over here and say, I commented here! and link to that site.
We know this is a little different than the traditional giveaways where you subscribe to our page or become a fan on Facebook or promote it on Twitter, but we wanted to do it as an intentional way of celebrating the blogging community, of helping to promote someone else. We hope your comments will encourage other bloggers as well as show us some cool sites to check out.
Winner will be chosen Friday. More contest details below.
