You thought I was dead didn't you? I'm not, and that is good news for you because I present to you here on HalloweenOverkill the 1st Annual HalloweenOverkill Halloween Countdown Extravaganza or HalloweenOverkill Halloween Countdown 2010. Not a real fancy title is it? You'll just have to learn to like it because it is my first year and I was too busy designing that god forsaken logo to come up with anything better. If any of the elements in the logo look familiar it's because you've probably seen some of them in different gimp tutorials, but fear not every single thing you see above was created from scratch by yours truly. (Except for the fonts used, but the glow and color outline effects were done by myself as well.) So what do you think? Not bad for a first time gimp user I'd say. Well we'll officially call that the first post in this Halloween Extravaganza that is somehow going to have 43 more posts of Halloween themed goodness. These posts will include: interviews, contests, giveaways, candy, candy corn, candy treats, razor laced candy, and candy apples. Ok, never-mind they aren't all going to be about candy but you get the point. I'm hoping to post something every day be it big or small but if not please don't send me hate mail, as I said before this is my first year with a countdown. So does everything sound good? Please I implore you, if you have any suggestions or ideas please let me know because I don't want to miss anything that I may not see in my area, or anything that was a total hidden gem at some store I don't usually shop at. And hopefully a lot of these posts aren't the same products and/or ideas that other blogs are using in their countdowns. If they are I can assure you it is just coincidence, as I am sure we will all be running into a few items that we all share a common interest in this season. If you see some of the same stuff here as on other blogs let me repeat, this is just a coincidence and hopefully each and every one of us have our own spin on the ideas so that all you ghouls out there can come to everyone's countdown this year and experience something different. So for now it looks like we'll have at least the two contest/giveaways that I have planned for this Countdown, but I can assure you I am working on more. Also if you happen to be from a company or you yourself want to run a contest/giveaway on the countdown this year email me at halloweenoverkill(at)gmail.com. If all we end up having is the two giveaways/contests I am really hoping you will still come on by and share with me the love we all have for this special night as we countdown the days until it's arrival.
