31 days ’til I turn 31!
Every year, on Habitica, I do a whole Event for my birthday where I give away gems (the paid-for currency of the app) and spread a little joy through a challenge, which includes tons of self-care tasks and ideas for feeling connected, finding some joy, and helping your community. I’m still doing that this year, and if you’re a Habitica user, you can join that challenge!
Still, this year I felt like doing something a little bigger, even as I bring some of that joy and encouragement to take care of yourselves to this blog. So! This year, I’m doing a little giveaway: one person will win £50 worth of books from Portal Bookshop, and two people will win one book of their choice (£15 or under) from Portal Bookshop*. It will be a-okay to pick something that they need to order — you don’t have to choose from what they have in stock.
You can just put your details into the Rafflecopter giveaway and click on the freebie entry… or you can gain more entries by following my blog (if you don’t already) and doing some nice things! None of them should take too long or be too onerous, and there’s no obligation to do them in order to enter. It’s all on the honour system, but if you want to tell me about what you did, you can.
I do love giving people presents on my birthday, but if you’d like to make some return, I have some Amazon wishlists! Because of the nature of the internet, I’m not comfortable with giving out my address to all and sundry… but feel free to purchase things via Amazon, which should let you send them to me!
- My book wishlist
- My Kindle book wishlist (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- My non-book wishlist
So there’s that! I hope the tasks I picked are somewhat enjoyable, if you choose to do them… and I hope everyone else enjoys my Hobbit Birthday as much as I always do.
* If it turns out that Portal Bookshop cannot ship to you, we’ll figure something else out. I’m hoping to use Portal Bookshop specifically because they’re great, they super deserve the support, and they’ve been amazing at facilitating my greedy love of books and my enjoyment of sending books to people I don’t know.
