But today, I want to share with you my thoughts on "Giveaways."
I recently hosted a giveaway sponsored by CSN to celebrate my over 200 Followers. It was easy-peasy with the only requirement for entry being a comment about your favorite Halloween memory. That was it.
It got me thinking about how other bloggers conduct their giveaways.
I rarely enter giveaways because the "rules and regulations and requirements" are so long, so extensive and require me to practically give away my first born.
"Become a public follower of my blog. Follow me on Twitter, on Google Face Connect, on Facebook, on MySpace, on YourSpace, on OurSpace, blog about my giveaway, tweet about my giveaway, grab my button, add my banner to your website, buy something from the sponsor, subscribe to my blog, visit this blog and that blog."
No joke people. I read this on a recent blog giveaway.
Really? I have to do all this for handsoap?
I want to celebrate the readers of my blog by hosting a giveaway - a simple giveaway.
I don't require them to sign their life away or join other sites or cloud their inbox with more crap than is already in there.
Lighten up people.
I will not be doing all of this to just get that!
Nor will I ever require you to.
Overlook a great deal.
Correct a little."
