Today is a happy day – it is The Daily Dose‘s 1st birthday. 365 days ago we published our first post, an interview with gothic-rockers Flyleaf. Over the past year, we spoken to a number of stonking Scottish talent, chinwagged with the likes of Blink-182, Lissie and AFI, showcased Scottish photographers and dipped our toes in the darkside with our ‘Metal Monday’ feature. We also put on a number of gigs and was invited to a Tennent’s advertising launch – free beer all day – with fellow blogger Peenko. Why? We still don’t know.
And to celebrate all this fun, we are not eating cake, blowing candles and unwrapping presents. Instead, today we launch the:
Yes indeed – roll up, roll up. At this very moment we are kindly being donated CDs, t-shirts, DVDs and almost everything in between (not quite) from Scottish bands and musicians across the country. There will be goodies from bands we have featured on the blog before, and ones that we haven’t. It will all be chucked carefully into a box and will be the super-duper prize for our super-duper 1st birthday giveaway.
We will be revealing what will be included in the prize and how you can win it all soon – but for now, happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me…
