Gardenbloggers are hitting pay dirt — free stuff! – and here at GardenRant we’re happy to share the bounty. We’re already lounging about in our free Sloggers, the comfy multi-purpose shoes shown here in four lovely colors, and waiting for it to warm up enough to try them out in the garden. But while we’re waiting, it’s giveaway time!
COMMENTERS MAKE THE BLOG
Yes, it’s time to show our appreciation to the unruly bunch of readers we’ve come to know through their comments because without them, we’d just be blogging in the wind. Our commenters mix it up with humor, expertise, passion and civility and create the conversation that makes Gardenrant so damn much fun. (Eat your heart out, Hillary.)
So we’ve tallied our comments over an 8-week period and are happy to award free shoes to our top commenters, with the top spot being won by our new friend Craig, who insists he isn’t a horticultural expert:
- Craig at Ellis Hollow
- County Clerk (aka Hank) of Lake County
- Christopher in Hawaii of Tropical Embellishments
- Chuck B of Whoreticulture
- Kathy of Washington Gardener
- Firefly at Sweet Pea Chronicle
- Colleen of In the Garden Online.
We’ll be emailing the winners instructions for claiming their very own Sloggers (for ladies) or Premium Garden Clogs (for men). Product reviews on their own blogs are, of course, optional.
Having overpaid more than once for the suddenly trendy Crocs (at $30/pair), I (Susan) like Sloggers’ more reasonable $18-22 price tag. And at least the blue pair I received look good enough with jeans to wear outside the house without provoking jeers. I’ve found them utterly comfortable and fine for all but the most strenuous of gardening tasks, like stand-up digging, that require a stronger shoe. I invite my Gardenrant partners to leave comments with their own reviews.
