I've often said that I try not to pay attention to the number of "followers" because that's a road leading to paranoia and self-doubt, but I have to admit that hitting 100 was something I had been waiting eagerly for for the past few weeks. Because as soon as I realized what "giveaways" were, I had it in mind to do it with a special twist.
Instead of roping in new readers with enticing products, what I want to do is thank those who already support Beauty Reductionista. This isn't a slam on anyone who choose to have the regular giveaways. I just prefer not to have people following me because they want prizes or freebies. Plus, a lot of the regular readers have become friends and who doesn't love sharing makeup with their friends???
100 isn't an exact number as there are those who followed months ago and became inactive and there are those who don't follow publicly but lurk without commenting. But the only way I know someone is reading is if they let me know somehow. Every comment left is read and responded to with gratitude, and I've learned so much more from blogging than actually imparting information or knowledge. Thank you all for sharing in this journey with me!!
So this is how my giveaway is going to work. First, here are the goodies:
Disclaimer: All products were purchased by me.
If you have been following/emailing/tweeting at Beauty Reductionista before July 22, 2011, simply leave a comment below letting me know what you enjoy most about this blog and/or what kind of posts you would like to see more of in the future. This isn't a promise to take everyone up on their ideas but I thought I'd take the opportunity to pick your brains a bit.
In one week's time, I'm going to drop the qualifying names in a hat the old fashioned way and randomly select three winners.
Thanks again for reading. You guys are the best.
