Giveaway Poll!

Hi guys,
I know it's Medical Mondays. But I must soothe this nagging itch I've had (without the use of steroid creams.)

I've been wanting to do a giveaway for sometime. In the past, I've given away books, gift cards, stuffed bacteria, soap, all sorts of stuff.

What I want to know is what do YOU really WANT?

So please do the nifty poll over yonder to the right--->

THANK YOU, and please spread the word! As bloggers, we can all benefit from the answers I'm going to post next week!


Happy Monday! (ooh, I'm inspired. Here's my favorite Happy Mondays song. Enjoy!)

I never say no to books (and I voted). :) Happy Monday, Lydia!

Bethany Myers said...

What a great idea, Lydia. I voted for ARC's.

My moto: "If it's free, take two".

Actually, I'll take anything.

Cheers!

Don't know what ARCs are though I'm sure it's something obvious

Slamdunk said...

Awesome, this will be like filling out Santa's list then...

LD Masterson said...

I voted. It was easy - BOOKS! I find so many good new-to-me authors through giveaways.

Jena said...

Happy Monday, Lydia! I came here via @deryncollier and voted for critiques of first 5 pages and queries.

LTM said...

I like AMZ gift cards. But I also like books. Then again, unique items are fun... Yep. Pass the steroid cream. :D

Laurel Garver said...

I voted and I have a half-formed medical question for a future post. I need to do a bit more research on my own to help me formulate what I need to know. I'll e-mail ya. :-)

Nicole Ducleroir said...

Oh great, now I feel itchy! Haha! Have a great week!!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I vote for Medical Monday! Just kidding.

Barbara Watson said...

Oooo! Good idea. I giveaway books but would love to hear what people want.

Catherine Stine said...

I popped over and voted... pens, yes, and I checked Other in thinking about giving away eBooks--I have too many actual paper books on my shelf!

Cherie Larkins said...

Cool! I always like winning books, even though I have a whole shelf of to-be-read books at the moment. Gift cards are cool,too. Hmmm...tough. Will vote in a minute. :)

Happy Monday!!

Southpaw said...

I voted.I don't want you to have to resort to, um, creams. :)

Old Kitty said...

I voted! You are such a star, thank you!

Happy Monday to you too!

Take care

Plush Microbes FTW!

Linda Gray said...

I can never just pick one--I chose all the book-related ones. Will shout.

Casey L. Clark said...

I agree with Linda..anything book-ish. :D

Krispy said...

Voted! :) Hope your Monday is going well!

Shelly said...

This is a great idea. The stuffed bacteria has me intrigued...

mooderino said...

I have voted (holds up purple finger - from unrelated activity)

Sarah said...

I have a soft spot for the microbes, Lydia. But gift cards are good, too :)

Natalie Aguirre said...

Great idea. I really think books and ARCs are the best giveaways. And when you're getting ready for your book release, pick the blogs that get a lot of traffic for your book/ARC giveaways because obviously you can't give them to everyone.

Lorelei said...

Great poll! I voted. Hope you find something for the itch.

Carrie Butler said...

Now that's a fun poll! :) Happy Monday!

Angela Brown said...

Will be interesting to see what the results will be. I voted an Other as well. And what would this Other be? An Alz-touched manatee to help me rule the world - erm - to take the world by storm with my writing :-)

marybelle said...

I voted for Gift cards for book & actual books.

How nice to have a survey! I voted gift cards for books, ARCs and books.

And Happy Monday to you!

Coleen Patrick said...

Stuffed bacteria? I'm curious!
Happy Monday Lydia :)

Connie Keller said...

I voted for books and ARCs. It's just a great way to discover new authors.

Karen Lange said...

A giveaway is always fun! :) Thanks a bunch for letting us help with the process.

Jemi Fraser said...

You're a sweetie! :)

Kelly Polark said...

Hi Lydia! I always love book gift cards or critiques!

Leslie Rose said...

Voter here. Great idea, but now I'm itching. What's up with that?

Shelley Munro said...

I voted for book gift cards. My reasoning is that they work for international readers too.

Bathwater said...

Steroid cream wasn't an option?

April Tucholke said...

This Happy Mondays song rules.

M Pax said...

Neat song, Lydia. Happy Tuesday to you now :)

Romance Book Haven said...

Okay! Never say No to Giveaways! I voted!

Happy Monday!

Kimberlee Turley said...

I love those plush microbes!

My sister does some sort of testing for DNA and HIV (microbiology stuff) and I've bought her at least a half a dozen of them. Still trying to find one for gingivitus since her fiance is a dentist.

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

This is a great idea and you made it so easy to vote. Thanks!

Creepy Query Girl said...

great list! It's so hard to figure out what to hold contests and giveaways for these days! It feels like it's all been done! The list was a great idea!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Great idea, Lydia. It was easy to vote.

Heather said...

What a cool idea to pole for this.

And um, I hope that itch goes away. ;)

Jennifer Shirk said...

I like actual books or ebooks (that's what I voted for) but GC for books works too. LOL

Maurice Mitchell said...

Happy... Wednesday. I voted for the first option.

Thanks for this, Lydia! I voted for writing stuff, random stuff (I've always wanted the Common Cold plush!), critiques and gift cards for book! Can't wait to see the top voted!

Hope you're doing well. :)
