I’ve owned a Flip camera for almost a month now and it is always with me. Well, mostly always with me. It’s one of those a staple items in my purse. You know, just in case I need it.
This is the model I have, by the way. The Flip Ultra. I’ve found a lot of use for it. I think about using it for all the vlogs I have in my head, and for all the vlogs I actually follow through with. I’ve also been able to use it when I couldn’t find my point and shoot camera (which also resides in my purse) since I can use my Flip camera to “film” whatever I want a picture of and then I later freeze the snapshots and save them to my computer as pictures.
In addition to being small enough to keep in my purse, and in addition to be being able to use it to take snapshots, it also comes with built in movie making software AND hooks directly into my computer for easy video uploading. In fact you can load your video directly to sites like YouTube from the Flip video page. It’s all really easy.
You should know that Flip has never given me a camera. In fact, I bought my own Flip because I had heard so many great thing about the product. I knew that Flip was going to be giving me a Flip to give to you, and I wanted to make sure that a product that I am endorsing and giving away is something I actually really like.
You should also know that Flip has never (and sadly probably never will) given me any money to say all these great things about their camera. I just like it.
As I mentioned above, they have given me a Black Flip Ultra HD to give to you…..
okay FOUR of you….because I’m not alone. I’m teaming up with four fellow bloggy friends and EACH of them are hosting a Flip camera video giveaway on their blogs as well.
In addition to simply answering questions on each of our sites each carnival you link up to will earn you FIVE additional entries.
This means if you leave daily answers on each of our blogs AND participate in all four carnivals you will have a total of 36 entries and an opportunity to win one of four Flip cameras (sorry multiple cameras will not be awarded to the same person if their name is drawn more than once).
Here’s a sneak peak of the carnivals you may want to prep for this week:
Tuesday “Creepy Crawly Crafts”: Link up with Mayhem And Moxie by sharing anything you’ve created this Halloween. Examples include, Halloween costumes, recipes, crafts, party invites, treats, decorations etc…
Wednesday “Ghosts Of Halloween Past”: Link up with (me) Seven Clown Circus by posting pictures and descriptions of Halloween Past. This could be a memorable Halloween from when you were a child or simply a cute story and picture from just last year. If you are contributing to this theme as an entry into the Flip camera giveaway I’m asking for you to put an asterisk next to your blog name when you enter it into Mr. Linky. This way I can specifically view and enter the correct participants for the Flip camera Giveaway.
Thursday “Spooky Story Starters” : Link up with Mama’s Losin’ It by choosing a writing prompt and participating in her Writer’s Workshop:
1.) Show your spooky side
2.) Show and Tell using your favorite Halloween home decor
3.) Write a poem to your child as their Halloween character (for example I may write a poem to “Pongo”…the 101 Dalmatian Laina is going to be for Halloween)
4.) Post a vlog of yourself playing a Halloween prank on a family member or friend.
5.) Describe a favorite Halloween costume or moment you wish you had on video.
Friday “Eat, Drink, And Be Scary”: On all Hallow’s Eve, Laura from Better In Bulk wants to see want we are making in the kitchen. Show your devilish desserts, give us the scoop on pumpkins, or share your favorite holiday drink. If cooking isn’t your cup of tea, then tell us what you are doing with your leftover Halloween candy. Do you enjoy immediately, save for later, or just bribe your kids with it when needed?
That’s a lot of information. All you need to do right now is:
1.) Answer the question posed in my daily posts.
2.) Head on over to the other blogs participating and answer their questions on their blog.
3.) Come back tomorrow and repeat steps above.
2.) Post any carnival entries you’d like to participate in for extra chances to win.
Just to reitierate, you don’t have to participate in the carnvials to enter to win. Those are bonus entries. You may simply answer the daily question (it’ll be a different question each day) posted on each of the four blogs to be entered. This means, everyday each of us will ask new and different questions providing you with the opportunity to earn a total of 20 entries by the end of the week.
Contest ends on Friday October 30 at midnight EST. Winners will be picked at random and announced on Halloween! Good luck!
