I have 20 Followers!

Wow!  I am so excited about having 20 followers!  I'm almost up to 1,000 page views, too.  I will have to have my first giveaway soon!  I have to figure out how to use Rafflecopter and do some research on shipping nail polish.  If any of you other bloggers who have already done giveaways have any tips, I would be very grateful to you if you would share them with me so that I can have a good giveaway.  I already have the giveaway prize, too.  This is very exciting for me!  THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING MY BLOG!

  1. I have only done one giveaway. so, the only tip I have is when you ship it I would get a tracking number.

    1. I LIKE THAT IDEA! And, I already feel like giving nail polish gifts to the handful of followers that have consistently commented on my posts. So, I would rather they have a better chance of winning a giveaway. If fewer people know about the giveaway, then they have a greater chance of winning! I think that would be nice for at least my first giveaway. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Yay! Congrats! Rafflecopter is really easy to use, I don't think you'll have any trouble with it.

    1. Thanks! It's very exciting! I'm at 22 followers now (it's like a follower per day that I've been blogging!), and I'll be doing the giveaway at 25 or 30 followers or by this weekend probably, even if I don't have 25 or 30 followers by then.

  4. I didn't realise you'd only been blogging since March. I must have added you to my feed reader more or less on day one then! can't offer any advice re giveaways I'm afraid... I prefer entering rafflecoptor to google forms, as if at a later stage I am able to gain extra entries I can return to do so, eg some bloggers give entries for using pinterest and I only recently joined there so now I can revisit rafflecoptor comps to do that entry.

    1. I have been blogging since March 31st!!! Only one day in March! So, you have definitely been following me from the start. THANK YOU!

      I completely agree with you about preferring Rafflecopter because you can come back and add entries later. I prefer that when I enter giveaways, too. My first giveaway, though, I am pretty sure I will use Rafflecopter, but I don't want to make people have to follow me or do other things to enter, and I don't want to publicize the giveaway too much because I want my first followers to have a better chance of winning. :-)

  5. Congrats! we're doing our first giveaway. We were worried about doing Rafflecopter all wrong. So we actually put in on another blog I have but don't use and tried it out to make sure everything worked(Just remember to delete your entries on the rafflecopter site). Then we transferred the giveaway code to the nail blog.
