seven cups of green tea - giveaway!

my apartment building in Thimphu

September 28th marks seven years since I started this blog. There's no great literature to be found here and low-key posts about my travels or crafts make up the bulk of the content. I have never tried to 'monetize' and my follower number is modest. But, I'm okay with that. In fact, I think my simple but long-lived blog is a testament to my stick-to-itiveness and my dedication to seeing through the projects I begin.

I've written before that expat blogs are my favourite category of blog. To celebrate the fact that greentea.tk has become an expat blog for a few months, I'm having a little giveaway. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post by October 8th with a link to your own site or profile so I can contact you (unless I know you in real life, that is). If you are reading this via Facebook, please go to the actual page to leave your comment. I don't mind if you're a friend who checks my site daily, someone who found me only today or a regular reader who has never commented before - you are welcome to try for the prize!

The winner of the giveaway will be chosen via a random number generator - if you're picked, I'll be sending you a specially-chosen gift all the way from Bhutan! If the winner is residing in Bhutan already, I will treat him or her to dinner instead!

Thanks for reading and good luck/tashi delek!

Seven years, wow! I've been blogging for 10, but never longer than 5 years on one blog.

Hi Andrea!

Happy 7 years!!

Just wanted to say hello and tell you that I have enjoyed reading your blog.

The picture of your apartment building reminds me of the rooftop of my grandma's place back home :)

Pardon me while I delurk at the thought of a prize all the way from Bhutan! I've been reading off and on for a little while - I love living vicariously through travelers!

Congrats on 7 years! I have 2 blogs these days - one which has been kicking around for about 5 years and one for my business which is just a few months old.

Wow, 7 years! I think I found your blog in about 2005 and have been reading on and off ever since. I'm really enjoying your posts from Bhutan.

Hi, I will take your achievement as an inspiration. Seven Year is quite a lot of time... Congrats.

By the way I am interested in your surprise gift, but since I am in Bhutan there is no more surprise...it is a dinner...

I hope your random picker will pick me up knowing that it would be easier to reach me...I am just 70 KM away in Wangdue...lol

I hope you remember my blog: http://writebhutan.blogspot.com

So, I stumbled upon your blog because I was poking through the stats of mistranslation and noticed that you had linked me awhile ago when you were clearing out the RSS feed.
What you're currently doing is awesome and I've now added you to my RSS feed, so hello. :-)

Seven years, wow! I've not been reading for that long, but it's been a while. I love reading about your travels, and especially your photography (and even more especially your food photography!)
