When I first started this blog, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Would people think it was interesting? Would my content be different enough to attract readers? Could I come up with something to write about for more than the first month? Then there was the question of an Instagram account. Should I start one to go with the blog? Will I be able to take enough photos for it? Will anyone follow it?
Fast forward about two years and I’m at over 2000 followers on my Instagram account and just started a YouTube channel! Plus, it’s a leap year and who doesn’t like a little rhyming and alliteration in a blog post title (Leap Day Lamy 2K Giveaway)? To celebrate, I thought it would be appropriate to give away a pen that is iconic, amazing, very desirable and shares the “2000” mark: a Lamy 2000. Last year I bought my first (and so far only) Lamy 2000 and immediately fell in love. I had heard everyone talk about how great they were, but never really understood it until I had one that I could use on a regular basis.
Now I want someone else to have that experience. Up for grabs is a brand new Lamy 2000 fountain pen with a medium nib. If you’re not familiar with the Lamy 2000, here’s a quick rundown. First off, there’s the design. As you can tell, this pen looks a little bit different than most other fountain pens. It was designed in 1966 by a famous German designer who was versed in the Bauhaus style of design. Next is the material. The body of the pen is made of Makrolon, which is a polycarbonate resin. What I love about it is the soft, warm feel it has. It’s unlike any other pen that I’ve used. Finally, there’s how it writes. The 14k gold nib is a dream to write with and has just enough spring to give it a soft feel without being a flex nib.
How To Enter The Giveaway
Entering couldn’t be easier. The widget below has a bunch of different ways to enter. For example, you get one free entry just for stopping by! You can also visit (and hopefully follow) me on Instagram and YouTube, tag a friend on my Instagram giveaway post and share the giveaway in an Instagram story. You can also comment on any blog post on this site for an entry and this one can be done once per day! If you’re not sure what to comment about, leave me a note on this post about YouTube videos you’d like to see.
Thank you to everyone who’s been with me since the beginning and to anyone who’s just discovering this blog. I’ve got some exciting things planned for this year and can’t wait to have you along for the ride!
