Happy birthday! Let's start with a crazy week: day 1, Blood Bowl giveaway

Hi everyone.
Today is my birthday! Well, not quite, it's my blog 2nd birthday. And I have to tell you a lot of things happened. I made some friends, did a lot of projects, started lots of them, finished only a few (erm). But one major thing for me is the fact that my reader's profile has changed. Let me explain. Up unitl a couple of days ago, the most numerous readers were from France, as I could expect. But since the past week, the country contributing to the most important hit numbers is... the USA. And the gap is widening every day. Uk is third, still a couple thousands hits behind them.. So, thanks a lot everyone, it means a lot to me.

And to celebrate this, I intend to start a week of craziness, full of giveaways.

Salutations. C'est aujourd'hui mon anniv'. Bon  pas tout a fait, mais c'est plutot celui de mon blog. Voila deux que je suis sur blogspot, et franchement je ne le regrette pas. Certes il y a des bugs, mais j'ai pu connaitre un paquet de bloggers internationaux, j'ai demarre une tonne de porjets, pour en terminer une quantite infime (hum).
Par ailleurs, c'est une etape importante, car depuis quelques jours, le profil de mes lecteurs a change. En effet, jusqu'a il y a peu, mon plus grand nombre de lecteurs venait de France. Ce n'est desormais plus le cas, car environ 25% de mon lectorat est desormais americain. Le Royaume-Uni vient en troisieme position, a quelques milliers de hits derriere la France.

Pour celebrer ce double evenement, j'ai decide de faire une semaine de folie, avec des cadeaux a gagner toute la semaine:

The rules:
1/ You have to be a follower/ regular on my blog.
2/ Simply write a comment in the day's post to tell if you're interested (or not). Your comment will earn you a chance.
3/ For each comment per topic, you'll get another chance.
4/ If you promote my giveaway (I'm such a bitch, but I'm specialized in French kiss ;)), you'll earn five more chances per item.
5/ The results will be given one week after each giveaway.

Right, first giveaway:
4 * 28 miniatures, still in their blisters. The pics are from the manufacturer:

- 1 Benito, from Gaspez miniatures:






- 1 Ulfhedner, from ZN games:




-2 Ice troll from Impact miniatures

  1. Bonjour! Happy blogday and congratulations on two great years of hobby blogging. Please sign me up for the giveaway. I don't play Blood Bowl, so if I win this I'm going to pass it on to Paul of the Man Cave, for his son Right Stuff Riley.

    1. Thank you Tamisin. I've been wanting to paint up a Blood Bowl team for a long time and can't afford to buy them.

    2. Wow - this post must have vanished somewhere and then re-appeared. I tried posting last night but kept hitting a glitch and it wasn't here this morning so I posted again

      Anne - I hope I win and you get the figures :)

  9. Happy 2nd Blogday Seb!

    Just wondering if the increase in hits from the US is a post-Salute thing? Did you link to any Salute posts on TMP?

    As for the prize, do enter me for this one but if I win please pass it on to Anne - I reckon she'd enjoy painting these figures up :)

    1. I think she would too. I'm just waiting for her to enter the draw to give her an additional chance ;)

    2. Oh, and you might be right about the post-Salute blogging. I did indeed post on TMP, resulting in a huge increase of hits for a couple of days (around 7K+)

      Cheers
