My First Giveaway! It's Blatant Bribery!!

My blog has only been up for about two months now, and I'm feeling like the new kid in school.  So in a blatant attempt at bribery, I'm offering a giveaway to get people to follow me.  Yep.  I admit it.  I'm willing to pay to get my followers number up!

I'm giving away a $50 gift certificate to Home Goods to one lucky winner.  All you have to do is sign up to follow me.  And if you want to leave a comment, I'd love it.  Now, quite a few of my friends have told me they've signed up to subscribe to the blog by email, but that's not the same thing as following.  And if Blogger lets you see who subscribes to your blog I haven't figured it out yet. To follow me you need to click the button in the sidebar and sign up with your Gmail or Yahoo email account. Or you can sign up through your blog URL.

That's it!  The giveaway will close on Thursday, and I'll randomly pick the winner. 

Here's an idea of the kind of things you can find at Home Goods:


Good luck!

  33. I bribe easily! What a giveaway! HomeGoods is one of my favorite places to shop. I don't have one near me now, but I would travel to go shopping at one if I won the giftcard. Welcome to the blogging world. I'm fairly new myself.
