Confession: I love giveaways. I have even won several (nothing big like a trip to Paris or a new dishwasher, but lots of great, cute and handmade items.) I have even been known to host a few (though I am lousy at getting my prizes mailed off in a timely manner…)
Recently I was approached by a lovely online shop to host a giveaway for a beautiful dress.
The company offered several lovely dress options that I could choose from to offer, along with a 10% discount for my readers. I was excited – who doesn’t want a new beautiful dress??- until I began to look through all the selections. No XL’s, no Plus Size options as giveaway items. I even asked.
So I passed. I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t advertise and offer a product that I myself couldn’t even use if I was the one entering the contest. What fun would that be?
I might as well put “Giveaway for Skinny People Only” in the blog title. Not that I mind skinny people. Some of my bestest friends are skinny. But, as much as possible, I would like to be an equal-opportunity giveaway hostesses.
No one should be left out of the fun. Life is hard enough, no sense in making it harder or lonelier for people.
So there it is. My confession for this week. Sorry for the lack of a giveaway- I hope you understand. I feel certain you must.
love lots and lots.
