ABC Wednesday~ G is for

GIVEAWAY~


Have you ever had a "Giveaway" on your blog? Many blogs do at one point or another. The purpose? I think for most it is to get more of a following... or to keep people interested in what you have to say. 
Most of the time the rules are pretty simple. 
1. You are a follower or become the follower of the blog.
2. You leave a comment on the blog.
~sometimes~
3. You may have to put a link on your blog to link up to the "host" blog page.


Your giveaway does not have to be something expensive. It can be something you want to re-give or something home (hand) made or it can be store bought. 


Sometimes stipulations are established to who can win the giveaway. This may depend on the weight and amount of things that are given away and what the cost would be to send to the winner.


If there is a "Host" blog giveaway, there is usually a blog button associated with the giveaway to link all the participating blogs together.


Here is an example of a giveaway. Feel free to look at it ... or not. Will I be participating? I would like too, but I'm not sure what I would "giveaway"


Sarah at Hope in Every Season is having a Spring Giveaway Jubilee starting on March 1.  You may either simply enter all the giveaways or further participate by actually giving something away yourself.  Why not join the fun?  The more people who participate in the giveaway part the merrier.  


Oh, and by the way ... if you DO look at the giveaway, there is no way anyone but you knows you did, unless you participate ... and looking doesn't mean you have to participate ... it just means you are curious.

Nope-I have yet to do a giveaway on my blog. I've thought about it, but having to look after the logistics causes me to hesitate!

On behalf of the ABC Weds team, thank you for your participation this week!

I haven't "given away" anything myself, but I did win something once and was absolutely thrilled when I received it. It's such a fun idea.

I've never done one but it might be fun sometime.
I do love winning though.

I'm having a giveaway on my blog, I wasn't really sure how to do it, but it's interesting. I don't know if it has gained me more followers, but I think some people do like giveaways and look out for them specially.
I have had a certain number of posts all in a burst and then they have slowed down, think they have stopped now.
