So I finally joined the 21st century, and created a Facebook Fan Page for Austin Eavesdropper.
I put it up a little over a week ago, and I gotta say, I'm already having a good time with it. It feels conspiratorial! Like this little back room where readers of this blog can hang out and chat with each other. I resisted for the longest time, because I just felt so sheepish telling people, "hey! Be my fan." But the reality is, if I want this blog to grow and be healthy and strong, I have to adapt already (old man grumble) and adopt existing promotional tools (cough, cough, wheeze, "how do I use THE GOOGLE?").
To celebrate Austin Eavesdropper's new Facebook page, I'm partnering with women's dress & clothing shop Shabby Apple to do a rad, vintage-inspired giveaway. Huzzah.
This dress is called "Spanish Steps." Are you liking the Roman Holiday it's channeling? Because I do. The cream / tan / a-line skirt action reminds me of Betty Draper ... whose style I covet. As does Zooey Deschanel. Sometimes I fantasize about Zooey and I watching Mad Men together, and taking fashion notes. I bet she fantasizes about that, too.
That's it! Yay for Internet magic.
High-five Shabby Apple for helping me host this giveaway! If you've got a hankering for vintage-looking stuff, like me, I recommend their Facebook page for insider-y promotions and discounts.
I'd also like to say a special thank you to everyone who has "liked" Austin Eavesdropper's page already on Facebook. Your support is so awesome, and even though it takes me forever sometimes to do the things I want to do for this blog -- create a Facebook page, get a nice camera, redesign it, etc. -- I love how you people are there for me each step of the way! Great big Tolly hug.
I'll keep this giveaway open for one week, and close entries at 5pm CT on Wednesday, June 22.
