Today, March 15th, 2020, I am celebrating the posting of my 1,000th blog!
There are several celebratory activities planned, the first of which is a photo giveaway! This is particularly apropos due to the fact it is a Sunday and Sundays have been dedicated to posting photos only, with the exception of the photo’s caption. It is a very popular day on my blog for views. And, the weekly posting of photos allows me to combine two of my passions – writing and photography. So, to explain the giveaway, I will depart for this Sunday from only posting the photos. I need to provide some explanation of how you can win!
To participate in this giveaway you must 1) select one of my photos in this post as your favorite and tell me why you like it in the comment section. I will number the photos so you can identify which photograph you are commenting on. 2) You must be willing to provide a mailing address to which the photograph will be sent. 3) Photo Size varies with the photo selected and marked with the size you will receive if chosen as the winner. If a watermark appears on the photo featured, it will not appear on the photo you receive.
A random winner will be chosen on March 20th by using a random number generator based on the order of comments. Notification will be on this blog by the end of the day on March 21st. If you are the winner, you must provide a mailing address within 48 hours. If you do not want to post your address publically, you can provide an email which I will use to contact you.
If you are the chosen winner, you can pick any of the photos posted, not just the one you comment on! You can let me know at the time you are notified. Unless noted all photos come in at least an 8 x 10-inch size, with some being available at 12 x 12 or 11 x 14. Inquire after winning as to which sizes are available for the photo you choose.
Have fun! I am thrilled to have reached the milestone of 1,000 blog posts at The Apples in My Orchard! Thank you for your readership and support!
