So, you want a free calendar? Good, because I need to do some marketing research and I thought this would be a good way to
con bribe you into helping me. I’ve been rolling around in my head the idea of making a calendar. The biggest problem with this is making sure there’s a market for it. Getting a few printed is expensive and more than most if not all of us are willing to pay. Getting quantities produced is the way to go, but then finding retail places for them is the key.
They are, shall we say, a dated product and have an expiration date unlike many other printed products.
So here’s what I’m giving away:
1 – 11×17 (when opened up) calendar
featuring art by yours truly. It is professionally printed on thick cardstock, guaranteed not to curl.
I don’t like their month layout AT ALL, but they gave me no choice on these. Any bulk productions will be better than this, I promise.
And since the winner will get one free, you’re not allowed to complain. I may, however, protest loudly. har har
Some more images that are included:
I did some editing on these that make them looks less like photographs and more like art. Here is a closeup of one of them:

So, this is what you need to do to enter this giveway:
Tell me what you typically spend or are willing to spend on a calendar
(and if you are cheap like me, don’t be embarrased to admit you wait for free ones from the bank or get $2 ones from Big Lots that later end up curling so bad you promise you will always pay for better quality next time).
This contest will end on Sunday night, September 26, at midnight your time. A random drawing will choose the winner, which will be announced first thing Monday morning. If the winner can get me his/her address right away, I will get it out in the mail by Tuesday. So leave your entry and then check back on Monday morning.
You do not need to be a xanga member. My comments are set to allow “Anonymous” to leave comments as well. However, PLEASE leave at least your first name in the anonymous entry form or in your comment. Any comments left completely anonymous with no name will be subject to disqualification. (I love using big words.)
Thanks and have at it!
