Blog Giveaway: 200 Followers (Or Something Close To That)!



I love my readers!  I am so grateful and humbled that you stop by regularly to see what is going on in my world.  As a thank you, I wanted to host a little summer giveaway.  I was given the book "Style A To Zoe" by a dear friend and thought it was a really fun read.  I bought a copy for one lucky reader along with a few other goodies pictured above.  We'll call them some of my summer favorites.  I may even throw in a few extras.  I get carried away like that sometimes.  I am looking forward to your entries (and to your advice)!  The more you unlock, the greater your chance of winning.


The rest of the information:
I will keep this giveaway open for one week.  Drawing will close at 12AM EST on Friday August 3rd.  This is not a sponsored post.  I purchased these items with my own money because I enjoyed them and thought you would too.  Winner will be selected randomly by Rafflecopter.


FAQ:
Is this giveaway open internationally?  Yes, it is.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

I would follow again, if I could double ;)

Well for the advice I would say go out in the world and introduce yourself to other bloggers. There are so many blogs if you just sit around and don´t socialize, no one will get to read your great content :) xo

CONGRATS on the followers!

Kat said...

congrats! :)

i think readability and consistency are key. avoid super long sentences and chop paragraphs into smaller "bite-sized" pieces.

post about interesting things...and please...do not type the whole ingredients list from a can..that scares me most!

cheers,
kat

Congrats on the number of followers and thanks for the fun giveaway! I would advise new bloggers to not listen to what people say are the typical "blogging rules." Write about what's near and dear to your heart and it'll be a lot easier

Emmy said...

Congrats, Erin! And I agree with Rooth's comment above:)

TheTinyHeart said...

Congrats on all the followers! My advice to new bloggers would be to leave thoughtful comments on blogs (that means actually reading the post instead of looking at just the photos) and following new blogs you like on a daily basis.

Blog about things that you want to blog about not what you think other people want to read. And comment!

Loulou said...

Congratulations on your 200 followers achievement! I always enjoy seeing what you have to say.

As for advice: Be friendly and leave nice comments on other people's blogs. Also whenever someone leaves you a comment, make a point to visiting their blog within the next few days and saying hello!

Jess said...

This advice I actually got from you: make sure to comment on other people's blogs

Awesome giveaway, and congrats on reaching 200 followers!

Heather said...

P.S. My advice to a new blogger -- just be yourself and find your own voice, as cliche as that sounds. It's so easy to try conforming and fitting into a certain mold, but better when you stay honest about who you really are.

Jessica Gitler said...

my advice would be to just be yourself and not try to be like the others .... and also that good clear photos really truly help!! congrats on the 200 followers!! i have yet to get there!!

My advice is always the same - blog because you love it, not to try to get rich or obsess about numbers. If you force it, you sound fake and will defeat yourself. Love it first and if you write well, people will like to read.

Ira Kharchenko said...

Congrats! Love your blog:)

I think my bit of advice is to be real and genuine! I feel when I read a blog I can tell when people are being insincere. People love honesty and the real you!

Congrats on your followers :)
I think for a blog is important to write about what the person likes, be genuine and keep posts not too long.

Sam said...

Just found your blog and I am loving it :)!


Oh and my GFC is being weird, but it let me follow you through it using my twitter... how cool is that?! I didn't know you could do that :)

Jamie said...

M advice is just to keep writing. Write and write and write and write :)

Audrey Allure said...

Great giveaway! I would say: blog about what interests YOU, always keep it true to yourself & not to blog about what you think others would like.

Shoe Bell(i)e said...

Congrats! The cake, btw, is a sponge cake with ricotta cream filling, yum:p... Here's to more success!

Just keep blogging about what you know and what you love. You blog is an authentic look at you and your interests. Do it because it is fun and brings you a smile and take a break when it becomes a chore. There is a great community out there so welcome!

Jenny @ Spry On The Wall said...

The number one piece of advice I would give to new bloggers is to comment on other blogs you find interesting. And then write about what interests you and what you are passionate about. Don't pay too much attention to the stats at first either ;o)

And thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I appreciate it!

GRAMMAR! That is HUGELY important! If you don't sound intelligent, people won't read your blog or take you seriously.

Lindsay said...

Congrats on hitting 200!!!

My advice would be to just blog for yourself. Don't worry about how many followers you have or how many comments you get.

MM said...

Congratulations on your 200 follower, my dear Erin!! You really do a great job!!

xoxoxo

Melayne Marchese said...

Love your blog...congratulations on 200!

Steph said...

Since I am a new blogger, this is something I struggle with too; write consistently. Two or three posts a week is better than posting every day for one week and then nothing for a month.

Tracy @ Honey and Nutmeg said...

Be yourself. Blog often. Link-ups are fun but do not have that be the only kind of posts you do. Big pictures are the best.
