****THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED**** JUN 1/2016
I’ve been blogging for over three years now, and I just want to say how thankful I am for all of you who read my blog, and for the ALWAYS positive or useful and constructive feedback I receive. I love it when you point something out that you like, and I love when you correct me when I’ve made a mistake. In the interest of building on that feedback, and hopefully getting even more of it, I’ve decided to hold a giveaway.
TL;DR: Here’s the link for the giveaway:
The rules are simple, I’m holding it through Rafflecopter, which is pretty much the gold standard for online giveaways. I have a few rules for the giveaway. The first is that you MUST be subscribed to my blog via email. If you win I will email you at the email that you use to enter the contest and I will check that email against the list of subscribers I have. That is the one “required” method of entry. There are a bunch more ways for you to earn EVEN MORE entries! The second rule is that if you’re a friend of mine or a family member you can’t win, sorry mom! And that’s it! Those are the only rules! Rafflecopter takes care of the rest and they will choose the winner randomly. I will contact the winner from MY EMAIL address, which is , and not from any other email. However, the winner will also be displayed BY Rafflecopter through their widget both on my Facebook page and on the original contest entry page. If the winner is not eligible (ie: somehow a friend or family member of mine), or does not respond to the email I send, I will select a new winner the following week.
So that’s it! It starts today and ends at the end of this month, in about two weeks! Thanks for being awesome!
Don’t forget: Sharing is caring!
Day 1 Update: Hello everyone! So happy to see that people are entering! Rafflecopter tells me I have 20 entries so far. This includes multiple entries by the same people, since you can enter a few different ways! A few people have entered 3 ways! That’s awesome! I’m so happy to see that people are engaging with me on my blog & Facebook & Twitter. I have always wanted to try Facebook ads, and since I’m trying to get the word out about my giveaway, I thought it would be a lot of fun to see how these Facebook ads really work. I am considering writing a piece about them and how/ if they work for small-time bloggers like myself. Anyways, I just wanted to write an update, and let y’all know how this is shaping up! This is super exciting for me! I can’t wait to see who wins!
Just a couple days before this ends, update: Hello again everyone! This giveaway ends soon! It’s been a lot of fun so far, and I certainly appreciate all the “likes” and Facebook shares. I also really appreciate the comments on here! It makes it a lot more fun for me 🙂 I know you’re excited to see who will win! I just want y’all to know that I will be picking the winner after 5pm EST sometime on June 1st. The winner will be announced here, on this blog, and I will email the winner using the email they provided, from the email I listed above. Then I will email the prize to the winner in the form of a virtual Lululemon gift card. I wish you all the best of luck!
Winner has been announced! Hello everyone! I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who entered, commented here, Tweeted about the giveaway, followed my blog, followed me on Twitter and visited my Facebook page. THANK YOU> Your engagement has made this SO MUCH FUN for me. 🙂 The winner has been drawn by Rafflecopter and announced. I have emailed her, and sent her the prize! Congrats to Michelle P! The Rafflecopter app announces the winner on my Facebook page as well, since I have that app installed on my page. Here is the link to it, and it can be found on my page by clicking “Giveaway.” You should also be able to see the winner if you click the original contest link.
THANK YOU AGAIN to everyone who entered! Don’t worry if you didn’t win this time! I’m sure I will have another giveaway in the future! 🙂
