The giveaway I have been singing about is finally here!! 🙂
Some months ago when I moved my wordpress.com blog to this site, I was worried… Like major worried.
I had all sorts of reasons not to do it. It felt like I was starting from scratch again.
I knew I had God’s backing to take writing and blogging for Him more seriously but still I was scared… really scared.
One of the things I was major scared about was loosing my subscribers and blog followers.
But oh, God has so used this journey to deal with some things in me that I can’t even complain.
A lot of stuff in my heart was wrenched out and dealt with…
Stuff about being a people pleaser… Stuff about elevating comments on a blog post more than God who called me to do what I do… Lots of stuff are still being dealt with in me.
I always say that I am not perfect and that’s the main crux of this blog.
God has called me out of my imperfections and I am simply sharing all He has put in me for all imperfect lives out there.
I am just on the road, walking through on the journey He has called me unto and I appreciate everyone who has been on this journey with me.
I don’t take my blog readers for granted.
I know most persons do not comment and that’s ok.
As at today we have some 8000 + page views and even though I log onto my blog more than 5times a day (yeah, if I don’t love my blog who will? Lol)
I still know that that amount of page views is not from me alone.
8000 + views on this blog for the last two months… Like seriously, where did you guys all come from?
I don’t think I have talked to up to 1000 persons since the beginning of the year but 8000 pageviews for a site I moved to in October?
I don’t take it for granted at all.
So this is for everyone who has ever clicked on this blog to read one thing or the other.
I really wanted to give out a gift that I would love to be given to me…
I saw a beautiful ankara jotter at the firm I did my Law School attachment in August and fell in love with it then.
I don’t have one yet but decided to make one for this giveaway.
You know writers write a lot and I personally don’t play with jotters.
I love jotters and because I love you guys too, I am giving out a beautiful ankara customized jotter as our first giveaway.
My dear friend Efe (remember the girl who started up her business from Are you really ready for greater post?)
Yes, she made the jotter and will be sending it to the winner.
So wherever you are in Nigeria, it will be sent to you IF YOU WIN.
And for the second giveawayÂ , I searched and searched and couldn’t find a more suitable gift so our second giveaway will be a 2000Naira worth gift card on Jumia.
It would allow readers based abroad to gift it to their friends or family here in Nigeria so it’s perfect (I think?)
You can get anything you want within that range on Jumia.
Jumia’s having a sort of Christmas promo now so hopefully, you can get something good with it.
The rules for the giveaway is simply for you to subscribe to this blog in the box below…
Like Imperfectly Perfect Lives on facebook here.
Follow me on twitter @FrancesOkoro
Then leave a comment below with your email for me to contact you if you win.
I will be using an online number generator to pick the winner and the winner will be announced on Sunday at 6pm.
7days to go…
May the best woman/man win! 🙂
Again, I must say that this giveaway isn’t enough to show you guys just how much I appreciate everyone that has been with me on this journey God has placed me in.
Plenty money go come in soon for us to have a bigger giveaway in Jesus Name, Amen!
I appreciate you all.
I heart you all.
God bless you all.
