Better late than never! Back in October of 2011 Effortless Anthropologie turned 3. Now that I’m finally catching up in my life it’s time to celebrate with a contest. When I first started this blog the goal was clear: a journal examining Anthropologie and the fashion ideals it possesses. Since then this blog has evolved into both a community and a business for me, with the former being priority #1.
Without this amazing community there would be no EA! I’m forever grateful to each reader, commenter, blogroll-supporter, emailer and friend I’ve met through this blog. I’m grateful for your comments, your thoughts and each of the affiliate links that you click on. So like every contest this one is all about thanking you and letting you know how much the support means to me.
Without further ado, announcing…
…Effortless Anthropologie’s Blogiversary Giveaway! Now normally the prize is an Anthropologie gift card — and don’t worry, I’ve got one of those giveaways coming up — but this time around we’re doing something a little bit different.
First up, you are entering to win a white 16GB iPad 2! While an iPad probably isn’t a necessity in life I can tell you that my iPad has been a lifechanger and a lifesaver. And along with the iPad, you’re also entering to win one of Anthropologie’s 3 iPad covers:
You’ll get to choose from the Riviera iPad Case, the Crackled Bronze iPad Case or the Cracked Chroma iPad Case. And of course I recommend that the first app you install is Anthro’s own wonderful iPad app.
Here’s how to enter:
1 – Join the community! If you’re not a follower of EA already, become a follower by clicking the “JOIN THIS SITE” button in the Kindred Spirits section which is at the bottom of the blog or the “FOLLOW THIS BLOG” button in the top blog toolbar.
2 – In the comments on this post or via email to the EA contest inbox tell the community your favorite iPad, iPhone or Android app. What’s the app’s name, what does it do, why’d you install it? And the Anthro app doesn’t count since I already mentioned it!
Here’s how to get extra entries:
1 – Tweet about this contest! Use the hashtag #EAblogiversary. If your tweets are protected I’ll need a screenshot.
2 – Tell your friends on your Facebook wall! Include EA’s Facebook page by using the @ tag.
3 – Share this giveaway post via Google +! Or you can use the +1 button in the post footer.
4 – Follow EA on Twitter or 5 – Facebook or 6 – Google +.
7 – Blog about this contest! Link me to the post once it’s up.
The not-so fine print: You are entering to win one (1) white 16 GB USA iPad 2 and your choice of one (1) of Anthropologie’s iPad covers. These prizes are subject to availability — if any of these items are not available at the end of the contest an Apple giftcard OR Anthropologie giftcard may be substituted at the discretion of the sponsor.
