If you have a product or business you’d like featured on this blog, please drop me a line:

If your product is something that would fit well on this blog, I would be happy to exchange a blog spotlight for something to giveaway to readers.

Here on Eating Dirt, I’m interested in thanking my readers with frequent reader giveaways. I’m primarily interested in focusing on local and Canadian businesses and products, but I have done (and will do) contests for other random products that I like and think readers would like.

To clear up any confusion about the giveaway process:

Every so often, I will dedicate a blog post to a particular product or company and then invite readers to comment in order to be entered into the contest. Unless otherwise stated, you have to comment on the blog post that announces the contest to be in the contest. That’s how I find the names to write down and put in the hat.

A contest will normally run for several days, at which point I will take all the names I can find, write them down, put them in a hat, have one of my kids pick a name, and photograph the process. When I say a contest ends on a particular date, that means I will draw a name sometime that day and when the name is drawn, the contest is over.

Initially, I was picking an exact time of day when I would draw the name but that proved too difficult. I can’t predict when I’ll be able to get to the computer because I don’t know ahead of time when my kids are going to be occupied enough for me to sneak over the gate into my “office.”

    I love…
    swinging in the hammock
    hugs from my kiddos
    hearing my kids read

    My friend Ashley wanted to post about her favourite barrettes and include a picture but she couldn’t figure out how to get a picture in the comments. I said I would try, but I couldn’t figure it out either. Alas, this is posted on behalf of my friend Ashley in BC:

    “I got these (coloured barrettes) at one of your birthday parties I’m pretty sure, between 1990-1994 I would guess. Probably closer to 1990 though. I still have them and love them. I recently lost the black one which was a go-to favourite. Some are missing their partner but still they are awesome. I can’t find any barrettes like this anywhere, they are just perfect!”

    Thanks for your comment Ashley!

    Great to see RJ taking his job so serious. After reading a few posts I should also add that I too like tattoo’s and my new trailer we just bought yesterday.
    Good luck to everyone!!

    I love and miss long summer nights in T-Bay
    the smell of nature after it rains
    love and miss the Northern Lights
    my pets both past and present
    the haunting sound of the Loon
    curling up with a good book
    ghost stories and shows
    science fiction and comedies
    my friends and most importantly my family, especially my cousin and her awesome boys (which means I’m exempt from any prizes, but wanted to share)

      I like your list!
      And how gracious of you to out yourself as my cousin and preclude yourself from the giveaways!
      (I’m not sure if preclude is the right word in this instance or if it’s even a word, but you get the idea)

    When the dog bites
    When the bee stings
    When I’m feeling sad
    I simply remember my favourite things
    And then I don’t feel so bad!

    • L.W. July 4, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

      Come on Sarah, I know that those are Aliza’s favourite things!

    I can’t believe I forgot to add tattoos and coffee to my list of fave things! I also like some of the same things as you, such as star wars, campfires and books! You have 2 books that I haven’t read so that is great ( if I win of course! Lol). I also love animals (Rottweilers especially. This is the first time in the last 20 years that I haven’t had one…or any pet at all!!! My kids are enuf work for now! Lol) , camping, spending time with my hubby and girls when he is back in town on days off… I will have to keep commenting and adding as I think of things. Then if I’m ever wondering what I love I can look back in years to come! Lol.

      Thanks for coming back again to comment! You don’t have to comment again though, you’re good for all four draws (unless you win of course)!

  8. Stacy July 2, 2013 at 10:20 pm #

    I love coffee! I also love Golden Doodles. I love sweet potato chips. I love Robert Munsch. I will add more later!
