Easy Win Giveaway Blogs

OK, earlier I started a list of blogs that  low entry giveaways...because if they had one they were likely to have had others.  But this list had gotten so old, because I hadn't checked or updated it in a while, and most of the blogs on this either didn't do giveaways anymore, or they weren't low entry anymore, or the blog didn't even exist.

Well, I'm restarting the giveaway with a blog I found recently that I know has had several low entry giveaways recently.  The old list is below if you'ld like to wade though it.    For now, the new list...

Think Geek Review and Giveaways

Having trouble finding the perfect gift for your guy?  Try Think Geek!  I found out about Think Geek several years ago when my husband took me to the site and said, "If you don't have something already in mind for Christmas, get me something from HERE!"  It's got lots of great geeky gear:  fun t-shirts, sci-fi stuff, and actual useful stuff like solar cell phone chargers and nifty all purpose tools that fit on your key-chain.

Here's a few items Think Geek carries that we have a love:


I think the coolest thing we've done with this is attach it to our ceiling fan (TURNED OFF - it's strong, but I wouldn't trust it with the fan on) and manually spun the fan slowly to take a aerial video. 


My husband uses this ALL the time.  It folds up small enough to fit easily in your pocket, and when closed the clippers keep it on your key chain.  It's a really frugal gift too at $12.99 (and there's a tool with just the smaller version for $7.99 if you want to go even cheaper.) 


Anyways, think geek has a huge $1,000 giveaway on their site, plus is offering lots of smaller blog giveaways.  I'm listing them below by date:

*I was not compensated for this review.  However, I did receive extra entries in the starred giveaways for blogging about them.  Also, Think Geek has an affiliate program and I am thinking of signing up, so if I do, the links will then earn me money if you buy something through them.

2 Question Thursday - Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Every Friday (well, ok, almost every Friday) I ask a simple question for you to answer--nothing that requires a lengthy response.  I'm combining this with Two Question Thursday (same idea...only TWO questions).

This week I'm looking for gift suggestions:
  1. I'm looking for a really good gift for a 2 year old boy.  We have trains and legos already.  Suggestions?
  2. And what's some good cheap gifts for boys ages 6-7?  Especially anything educational!

You can answer in the comments.  Thanks!
If you have a blog and would like to post your own questions you can leave your link on the appropriate day at the linkys at 2 Questions Thursday and An Island Life
