#50K50Winners: Day Five
February 23, 2010. That was the day I launched my Facebook Page and begin this crazy journey. I started backwards. I began with Twitter, thinking that would be my audience and my voice…but it wasn’t. I still enjoy Twitter, but my community is here. I didn’t really start using Facebook seriously for another year—it took me time to figure out exactly what I wanted out of it and how to use it as a “business”—and that still changes daily. On December 12, 2012, I hit my first “big” milestone. 10K “Likes”. It blew my mind that so many of you would care about what I do. Fast-forward to August of 2013 when I hit 20K….and then a few months after that I hit 50K on January 31st. The growth on “my” page the past few months has been crazy, and I thank all of YOU for that.
This is OUR page. Baby gear. Movies. Cocktails. Whatever. Yes, babies and parenting are the focus, but I think it’s important to have a break from that because we’d all lose our minds.
So, to thank all of YOU for being so awesome and sharing this page with friends, for interacting, and for turning this page into something completely different and special and wonderful and crazy, I got a few friends together. Good luck.
Ergo Baby was the first soft-structured carrier I was introduced to years ago. I was still working at BBB and a lady came in with one of the first generation Ergo carriers on. We chatted about it, and I jumped online to read more about it once she left. Fast-forward several years and Ergo is a household name, making comfortable babywearing more mainstream. Ergo carriers allow your child to ride on the front, your hip, and your back, and they support 45 pounds of kid. Aside from being comfortable, they’re very easy to use–so it’s no wonder they’ve dominated the market. Last fall I was given an exclusive sneak peek at a new carrier Ergo was launching: the 360. This would be the first carrier Ergo designed to allow parents the option of having the child face out (once they have head and neck control around 6 months) while being worn on the front. The seat is incredibly well-designed and unlike any other carrier on the market, providing full support for your kiddo. The waistband is completely redesigned and the most comfortable I’ve ever felt, and I am VERY excited to see how this fares once it hits the market. I’m a huge fan of it and will bring you a more in-depth review soon, but until then enjoy this video I made last fall.
You can also enjoy this giveaway. I’m thrilled to be working with Ergo in a major way today. 15 carriers for 15 lucky winners. As if that wasn’t enough, FIVE of those winners will receive the 360 Carrier. Yep. I have the first giveaway of the 360.
Oh yeah, I’m sure you’ve noticed the Magic Beans logo on the pic of AB. It’s no secret that Magic Beans might just be my favorite store on the planet, and the owners are my friends, kindred spirits, and chosen family in this crazy baby gear space. With stores in Boston and a NEW STORE IN FAIRFIELD, CT, the crew at Magic Beans do it well.
So each day of this giveaway they’ve donated 2 $50 GIFT CARDS!!!!!
So that’s 17 winners today. GOOD LUCK!!!!!
