Five years in the game is no joke. As a thank you to my readers who have supported me through thick and thin and helped to make Afrobella what it is today, I’ve got a slew of amazing giveaways lined up for this week!
I’m gonna go ahead and start with the biggest one.
Bellas, for a year I’ve been participating in a PC loaner program hosted by Microsoft Windows. For a year I’ve been using the beautiful chocolate brown Karim Rashid Asus eee PC as my work computer and travel buddy. Together we’ve been all over the place, from Los Angeles to New York, and even to Canada when I went on the MAC trip.
The eee PC is sleek, eye catching without being obnoxious. It fits SO perfectly on an airline tray table. It slides easily into my purse, eliminating the need for a bulky laptop bag when traveling. And (insert all of the techie details here that led CNET to give it this very detailed review).
My only issues with the Karim Rashid Asus eee PC turned out to be the same issues I have with any netbook or laptop….battery life. Over time the battery life has diminished, and in general I find that it’s best to keep it plugged in or stay near to a power outlet when doing really important work on it. Just letting you know!
Battery life aside, this netbook has been a stellar road buddy for me over this past year, I love the ease and user friendliness of Windows, and not to toot my own horn, but I’ve written some great stuff on it.
And now, the beautiful chocolate brown Karim Rashid Asus eee PC that has been my blogging bestie for a year, can be yours.
One lucky Afrobella reader will get the exact Karim Rashid Asus eee PC with Windows that has been making my life better for the past year – I will mail it to you myself.
Ideally, I’d love to pass this machine on to someone who’s been reading and commenting and supporting my blog for a while. A good person who does good things, someone who loves reading Afrobella.com, who could use a computer to achieve dreams and goals of her own. It would mean a lot to me to know this PC has been passed along to someone who will love using it, as I have.
All I ask is that you comment on this blog post, tell me how long you’ve been reading Afrobella and why YOU deserve this beautiful little netbook.
A lucky winner will be chosen over the weekend and I’ll announce the winner on Monday.
And PLEASE when entering, don’t use some obscure e mail address you never use and then don’t check your e mail for another month. Nothing drives me crazier. I will write to the winner, and if you don’t respond within a week, I will have to choose another winner. So PLEASE respond ASAP if you win. This contest is open to US and Canadian readers.
Thanks again to Windows PC for including me in this amazing program, and for allowing me to host this wonderful bloggaversary giveaway!
Good luck to you, bellas!!
