Happy Halloween season!
Besides our monthly Caption This Contests, we haven’t done many contests or giveaways lately. And we haven’t thrown a good-old fashioned online Halloween party around here in a loooong time.
Halloween 2016 is the year we’re going to change that!
We’ve been thinking about this for many months now.
Over the past year, we’ve collected a couple prizes from our affiliates that we’ve been saving for a special occasion. The time has arrived to start handing them out, because what occasion is more special than Halloween?
Fun & Games
We’re also going to experiment with some fun and games. We’re going to call it the Haunt Jaunts #WishYouWereHere #IfYouDare Halloween Challenge.
We’re always daring you guys to do things.
Just take a gander at the graphic above. But other examples abound around our site. Like our sidebar, for instance. You’ll see the “If you dare…” taunt in a couple of places there.
And on Facebook one of our favorite phrases to include when we share posts, be they ours or ones we’ve found elsewhere, is “Check this out!” or “Would you go here?” (or some equivalent) followed by: “If you dare…”
You know why we do it? Because we wish we were there, and we wish you were there with us. It’s a travel thing. Sharing is caring!
So now we’re going to give YOU the chance to turn the tables on us. More about that will be coming in another post later this week.
Another thing coming later, actually all October long, will be the giveaway announcements.
You’ll Want to be a VIJ
Speaking of giveaways…here’s another reminder that if you haven’t become a Very Important Jaunter and subscribed to our newsletter yet, you might want to. We’ll be doing a couple of VIJ-only giveaways.
Sign up for our newsletter here.
Now read on to see what kind of prizes we’ll be offering in the giveaways and the trophies that’ll be up for grabs in our Halloween Challenge.
(Yep. Trophies! We love awarding emotie trophies on comments that amuse and entertain us on Facebook posts, but now we’re taking it up a notch with real, totally worthless but completely fabulous 24K plastic gold trophies!)
These are what we have on hand, but you never know…we may feel generous and pop for some other prizes too.
You’re going to have to interact with us if you want one of these. More on how to follow in another post…
