Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Sunday, April 22, 2018

I’m thinking of running a small contest to help us get through the rest of winter.  I played with the idea of “Win Crap from my Closet” but common sense prevailed. This is a wiser choice:

It’s a small shoulder sling bag, big enough to hold a phone, id, change and maybe a small camera. Lots of zippered pockets to squirrel things away. It came from one of those online order companies that flash by on FB. I ordered a couple of things to see if the products were as good looking as they appeared.  I was surprised the overall quality. Well made, lightweight and perfect for outings where you don’t want to lug something heavy around.  

I’m sorting out details on how to make sure the draw is random – first, no friends, relatives or relatives of friends will be eligible.  I’m testing a few randomizers out, mostly because I don’t want to collect email addresses and need an easy way to make sure the draw is fair. I also need to think about how to smack away the asinine spammers.

Initially, I thought it would be open to Toronto residents only because the bulk of the site is about Toronto. But I’m wavering on that. I’ll look into the logistics of shipping it abroad and let you know, plus how to enter (of course).

I’ll post better photos when I’ve sorted stuff out. Stay tuned for details.
