Life With Dogs, Dog Tipper and Two Little Cavaliers welcome you to our first pet blog giveaway hop. That’s a mouthful, but the concept is simple: maximum fun for you and your readers, and a great prize for ours.
How does this thing work? Full details are here, but I’ll offer a breakdown (If you’ve already posted skip to the bottom of this post for our prize details). It’s easy enough – start with a post like this one. Next, grab a badge here and add it to your post:
With us so far? Great! Believe it or not you’re almost done. Now you need to decide what you would like to offer as a prize. There is no minimum value, and the only stipulation is that the gift must be pet related. Finally, be sure to e-mail a link to your giveaway post to the following address: [email protected] Now we’ll get a little technical to make sure you know how to organize the rest of your giveaway.
* Giveaways should be easy to enter. The main entry must be something that is quick and easy to do. For instance, you can have the entry be “Follow my blog on Google Friend Connect” or “Follow me on Twitter”. Just keep it easy, one step. You are welcome to have up to three (3) bonus entries of your choosing.
* The hop will start on November 18th at 12:01 am EST and end on November 25 at 11:59 pm EST. This means you still have plenty of time to join the fun!
Now that you know how to participate, let me share our prize for the giveaway. Call it lucky timing, but Three Dog Bakery contacted us just as I was trying to decide what we wanted to offer. They were kind enough to sponsor our giveaway with a beautiful gift basket of tasty nom noms valued at $70.
As is our custom, we’ll ask that you subscribe to our daily digest in order to enter. It’s easy to do, and is a nice way for us to get to know each other. It takes a few seconds to sign up here. The only thing left to do is wait for your first daily digest e-mail to arrive, hit the reply button, put the words “enter me in the holiday hop” in the subject and hit the send button (current subscribers, please reply to today’s digest). We’ll enter you and use randomizer.org to select a winner, who will be notified by e-mail.
For those playing with us, good luck – our dogs would trample us to get to those yummy looking 3 Dog Bakery treats, but they will have to settle for living vicariously through the winner. For those joining us with a giveaway post, thank you – this is going to be a very fun week for pet lovers, and I wish you a successful hop!
