Reviews & Giveaways

SO I always see all these blogs out here in blog land that review things
and do awesome giveaways and such.
Well What if I wanna do it too?

I just need some guidance on how to start.
The most I have done is host a party through

I love trying new things and opening my eyes to fab stuff.
So if you have any suggestions for me please feel free to e-mail me or comment.

I have tried to do it on my own but I apparently just chase my tail.

It's not like I want to do it full time but just something else to add to my blogland resume.

Well I look forward to hearing your responses.
And all help is appreciated.

  2. Hi there I think am your newest follower from the blog hop' I think a big key to hosting giveaways is building up your follower base.

  3. HI, I stopped by in the blog hop. I followed you, too! my new blog address is

  4. New follower from Sunday blog hop.
    Hope you follow back.

  5. Congrats on getting featured at Shibley Smiles!! I found a wonderful blogging mentor and she helped me get started... Also join mom blogging groups!! Following from Relax & Surf.

  6. Hi Nikki!

    I'm following from Relax and Surf Sunday. A lot of bloggers like to keep this a big secret well so that they can get the prime giveaways from interested companies out there. I recently wrote a post on how to monetize your blog that you might find interesting and helpful.

    Would love for you to stop by and follow back. Have a great weekend!

  7. Howdy,
    I'm strolling and stopping by everyone's blog increasing the GFC list where I can.
    If you have a dog, I need some love on this new sponsored giveaway.
    Appreciate it.
    Well, that was my copy/paste deal. Now, your post is one I wanted to post many times. I'm going to check out Heather's link above me.
    I write emails to companies that I find interesting. I also am listed on Tomoson but don't really find much help there. They want you to have an ungodly amount of followers to review a disposable plate. My Gawd! Anyway, I write emails. That's what I do. I would say out of 30 emails I may get 1 response.

  11. New Follower! And, a most excellent question. I'm just getting started with reviews, too. Try Etsy shops you love...they're always in the market for some advertising. Also, communities like SITS Girls, Mom Bloggers Club, etc. And, for a small fee, you can join Mom Spark Media. I've heard great things about that last one.

    Hope that helps!

  13. Hi Nikki, I'm following back from Food & Fun in the 419. I can't wait til I break the 100 GFC mark- slow but sure! Good luck, I am just starting out too, and find the blogging networks very beneficial. Still looking for that blog mentor though! :)
