  2. I hope that I have done this right. I have been looking at the Saddleback bags for over a year. As a poor teacher this would be so cool to win.

  3. A worthy use of twitter for an incredible looking bag. Let’s get the word out about the Gadgeteer. @jdreganmac is on board!!!

  4. Am I the only person out there who could care less about Twitter? Blogs are boring enough, now I need to know every little thing someone does?

    I hope you change your contest methods at some point. How about just an email?

    This is a good example of leveraging the power of social media platform to reach the masses 🙂

  6. I read the review of another bag (and the company) a few days ago. Being from SATX and knowing of Chuck Bowen, my enthusiasm is full-blown. The website for the company is an awesome example of writing copy that connects. Cool, I want one (or more).

  7. Here’s hoping I win! 🙂
    The Saddleback Leather Laptop Bags look like they’re something that could become a friend for life.

  8. I’ve been dying for a chance at one of SBL’s bags! Thanks for offering this contest. My twitter name is hardline_42.

  9. Love Saddleback (I have a briefcase and my wife has the messenger bag), but I DON’T love Twitter. Amazing how many people want to sign up for sites like that to post or read inane things. Best of luck to whomever wins – you’ll love the bag.

  10. That bag looks fantastic! I’ve tweeted & am crossing my fingers!

    (Psst, have you seen the blog comment plug-ins that also link in your Twitter account? Maybe something to consider for The Gadgeteer!)

    Why I should win the Saddleback Leather Laptop Bag?

    I blogged about this on my personal blog about a month ago*, but basically I need the perfect laptop bag for my new job. Don’t worry, I’ve done my research and have unequivocally decided that this is the bag for me. After looking through the Saddleback website, it appears that I’m definitely a Light Tobacco Brown personality.

    I appreciate you and Saddleback coordinating this giveaway, and look forward to hearing if I am the big winner.

    Been wanting one of those bags for ages, but can’t possibly afford one as a college student. Here’s hoping…

  13. This was a great marketing idea! I love the site. I love the Saddleback Leather stuff and it made me use my Twitter account again. Twitter name is gavedisi.

  14. Hi Julie. Great review — your pictures help get the scale. The Saddleback folks at EDCF sent me here to see your reviews of their bags, and the contest. My Twitter name is wenestvedt, and I would *love* to win the bag. :7)

  15. @Darin111 — I have the briefcase, need the laptop bag. Clever contest. Of course the more people who see the tweet, sign up, then retweet only reduces my odds of winning. Darn it. Post your numbers when you’re done?
