Blog Giveaways

by Erika Torres

I used to hate blog giveaways and thought they were a stupid waste of a blog post. My rationale was that I had entered a few and had never won anything so obviously they didn’t work.

But then, my bloggy friend, Cammy Confessions, hosted one and I won! And I was hooked. I entered every giveaway that came my way. I’ve lost a lot, but I’ve also won two! And since blog giveaways are a lot smaller than, say, the lottery, your chances of winning are a lot bigger!

My most recent win was from Living Well, Spending Less. Look at all this cool stuff I got! I saved a ton of money by not having to buy all these household supplies! And AirWick spray thingy? Absolutely LOVE it!

And the best part is, she hosts a weekly giveaway! And you can win more than once. So hop on over there…

Cammy is hosting another giveaway this week, and it’s for ASSETS! The more inexpensive, yet still high-quality, version of SPANX!

I also just entered The Life Accounts giveaway for a $100 gift card to ShopBop! Which I totally want to win! I’m crossing my fingers…momma needs a new pair of jeans!

I’ll have to come up with a really good giveaway…I don’t think anyone would be interested in getting some homebaked cookies huh? Any sponsors out there want to host my giveaway? Helloooo?

Congrats on the win! That’s a lot of stuff!!

I never win ANYTHING and when I won something from another blogger (a PF book) I was blown away.

It’s a nice feeling.

Good luck with more contests!

I entered that ASSETS contest too btw hehe Thanks!

I rarely enter the giveaway’s because they don’t usually include Canadians. It’s like we’re aliens or something. Hellooooo, we share the same continent, yo!

(You know what I’m talkin’ about!! hahaha!)

Right on! I used to NEVER enter giveaways because I figured the chances of winning were slim enough to make it a waste of time. But now I enter almost every contest fellow bloggers host. Even if it’s something I don’t really want, I’ll enter and then sell or donate it, lol.

I’d totally be interested in a homemade cookies giveaway! My fav are chocolate chip! 😉

Seriously though, I’ve gotten a lot more giveaway hosting requests because I harrassed Wisebread into putting me on their PF blog list. (Of course, now I’m not showing up, so I get to harrass them again! Yay!) I’ve gotten a handful of giveaway offers that I think probably came from the Wisebread list. You can also find specific companies you might like to do a giveaway for and email them directly. Think specific authors of books, the PR reps for companies, etc. I’m sure someone would host a giveaway!
