Last year I said thank you to the equestrian blogging community by hosting an Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange in the month of December and much to my delight it was a huge hit. I’ve already had a few of you ask if I planned on repeating the performance — so here it is: Fly On Over’s Annual Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange!
The community we have as equestrian bloggers is truly tremendous. For the most part, we all get along and support each other, which is something I’ve found difficult to replicate in the real world. I truly appreciate everyone’s words of encouragement, congratulations and sympathy throughout this year as Miles as I shared our ups and downs with the world. You’ve all been such a great support system for us that I could never really express my gratitude sufficiently. I’ve enjoyed immensely getting to know all of you and some of us have become really, really close these last few months. I’ve learned so much about horses through this equestrian blogging community that I never would have without it; and I’ve found a great place to express my creativity. So this is my small and humble way of thanking you for all that you’ve done for Miles and I in 2014. Ya’ll are the best <3
Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange: How it Works
The gift exchange is basically like a secret santa; Bloggers interested in participating send an email to yours truly with the information below by Friday, Nov. 28. I’ll match everyone up and you’ll have until Christmas to buy and send your gift. The monetary limit is $20 and in addition to spreading some holiday cheer, you’ll also receive a holiday card from Miles and I!
STEP ONE: Send an email to tracyjbeavers(at)gmail(dot)com with the following:
- Your Full Name
- Blog Name and URL
- Shipping Address
- Some information to help your Secret Santa shop for you (gift ideas, a bit of information about yourself and/or your horse, etc)
- Whether or not you’d be willing to ship to Canada and/or the UK
STEP TWO: Check your email on Monday, Dec. 1 to see who you’ll be shopping for!
STEP THREE: Send your gift the week of Dec. 22 (or before, if you’re on the ball)
