Blog Giveaways

Do you read a lot of blogs that have frequent giveaways that offer an absurd amount of ways to enter each giveaway? For some reason that really bothers me. It doesn't feel like a game of luck when there are 17 different ways to put in an entry. I did this for a little while and actually won a few things but when my Facebook and Twitter pages started filling up with crap I took notice to what was clogging up the pages and it was all prior giveaway company pages.

Take a look at blog giveaways next time and see what your record is for the most amount of entries. I say 17 with a slight exaggeration but really, some of the giveaways ARE pretty close to having 17 different options to enter! Here is 10 right examples I've seen on more than one blog just this week:

  • Leave a comment on this post
  • Visit the other person/company page and leave a comment on one of their posts
  • Like me on Facebook
  • Follow me on Twitter
  • Like giveaway sponsor on Facebook
  • Follow giveaway sponsor on Twitter
  • Blog about this giveaway
  • Post about the giveaway on your Facebook page
  • Tweet about the giveaway
  • Pin this giveaway to Pinterest
