Blogiversary Celebration Giveaway

So I missed the anniversary date of le blog because I was on vacation with the girls.  We went to New Orleans.  More on that later.  But I didn’t get to really celebrate shutterboo’s one year birthday.  Everyone knows that every birthday has gifts.  So I wanted to bring a gift to my own party.  The gift of Pro.

It makes sense to pass something like this along.  Last year, PodMate gave me the gift of Pro.  And I’ve become completely fascinated with all that a Pro account can do.  So one (1) lucky reader will also become a Pro.

Did you just ask “A Pro in what?”  Shame on you.  I’m talking about Flickr, fool!

Sure, you can sign up for Flickr for free but there’s all these restrictions including how much you can upload in a month.  With a Flickr Pro account you get: unlimited uploads and storage, access to your original files (muy importante), stats on your account, Ad-Free browsing (yeehaw!) and HD playback for videos.  Sounds like a lot more fun, no?

If you don’t already have a Flickr account, you’ll set one up and we’ll make you a Pro.  If you have a Flickr account, we’ll make you a Pro.  If you’re already a Flickr Pro account holder, you get additional year of these services.  This sounds like a solid plan to me, people.  I hope you’ll agree.

So here’s the skinny:

1. In order to qualify for the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment on this here blog entry.  It can be about your love for photography or what you had for dinner last night.  I don’t care.

2.  A valid email address must be included so that 1) I can notify you and 2) I can email you your new gift.

3. Your comment must be on this post.  The giveaway closes Friday, August 6, 2010 at 5pm EST.  The winner will be announced Monday, August 9th.

Good luck, friends of the interweb!

Note: Flickr is not providing this service.  This is a gift from shutterboo.

Melissa - ahhh… what a cool thing. I love when people celebrate their own accomplishments by giving me gifts. You are so sweet! (I already have a smug mug account, so you don’t have to enter me in this…) I can’t try to learn something new. Though I wish I had looked into flikr more at the time. I was frustrated with the non pro version, so I stayed away from it.
