Reader Contest

Already we are a little surprised by the number of people who are subscribed to our blog. 40 people is a lot for just a random blog, not to mention a lot of people who are not Followers but who read our blog regularly anyway. Thanks to all of you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with us and other readers. We've decided to start doing contests for giveaways to our readers. Our first contest starts this week!

The Challenge:
The Good Letdown needs a logo! Letters, words, images, or all of the above...if you're handy with graphic design, show us your stuff and submit a logo (no more than two submissions per reader please) by Friday, December 3rd at 11:59pm. You can e mail your image to, please include a little blurb about yourself so when we post the finalists, if you're one of them, we can tell the other readers about you! Short and sweet please!

The Decision:
We will review all the submissions over the weekend and pick 3 finalists. Those finalists will have their logo and their short, sweet blurb posted on the blog on Monday, December 6th. Readers will be asked to vote for their favorite logo by Wednesday, December 8th at 11:59pm. The logo with the most votes wins!

The Prize:
The winner can select one of two available prizes. The first will be a custom nursing pillow cover made to fit the ever-popular Boppy with a matching burp cloth. The second choice is a hand made nursing necklace! The winner will need to provide their mailing address so we can ship the prize!

We hope you want to participate, and feel free to share our blog with others so that they can participate as well!


  1. so. I'm sitting at home, in my Pajama's and I read this.. so I go to work.. I am searching around the web for things about breast feeding.. this is what i found
    "There are three reasons for breast-feeding: the milk is always at the right temperature; it comes in attractive containers; and the cat can't get it. ~Irena Chalmers"
    haha.. had to laugh. (it's not what I'm using by the way)

  2. ooh, bummer i'm not good with graphic design, i love nursing necklaces!

  3. Brittany, it doesn't have to be fancy!! Sometimes simple is best! You should still try for it!!!

  4. Dumb question of the day!!
    what's a nursing necklace look like?

  5. I just found your blog today. I'm sorry I missed this! I'm a graphic artist so this may have been fun. Anyway thanks to all 3 of you for writing. I love breastfeeding stories. Right now I am tandem nursing my 2y10m and 10m old daughters.
