How to maximize your chances when it comes to reaping the blog sweepstakes rewards
By Eli Pacheco
I watch them fly by on my Twitter feed … giveaways and sweepstakes on blogs.
Some are on blogs I trust. Others, just from bloggers I follow. I’ve won before – neat glass jars from Infinity Jars on The Mom of the Year blog. I’ve won a couple of excellent books, too, and once, a fresh pair of sunglasses that would never fit in my budget.
Often, bloggers win on other blogs. Hosts can ask for anything from a simple comment to a series of likes and follows through a third-party service, such as Raffle Copter.
“I won a littleBits Gizmos & Gadgets kit from More than Thursdays,” said Roxanne Pixel, who blogs on Unintentionally Brilliant. “I’ve been keeping it hidden, and am using it as a Christmas gift for my son. I know he’s going to love it.”
