Recently, I was a winner of multiple blog giveaways. I'm behind schedule on publicly thanking people for the wonderful prizes I won.
The first blog giveaway contest I ever entered... I won! It was Kelly Damron's blog: Twin Peas Blog and Podcast. I had never entered a blog giveaway contest before and this particular contest was entered simply by posting a comment on Kelly's blog post about the contest. I was randomly picked as the winner of a book called Hope for the Flowers by Trina Paulus.
If it weren't for Kelly, I never would have known about this wonderful book. It's a beautiful book about hope, strength, and love.
I liked the book so much that I gave my friend Alicia a copy. She posted it on her blog and many of her readers commented that they were already familiar with this great book. Apparently it's a classic but it's thanks to Kelly that I discovered it!
Thank you, Kelly!
Tracee Sioux recently launched The Girl Revolution (formerly called Empowering Girls: So Sioux Me). This was a huge launch featuring a blog giveaway contest with 25 different prizes!
I had just won the book from Kelly when I entered Tracee's contests.
The selection of winners was done randomly using a random.org program. I had diligently followed the instructions for entering all 25 contests. I blogged, tweeted, posted on Facebook, posted comments, etc. Since a large number of other people did the same, I didn't get my hopes up about winning anything.
Out of the 25 contest prizes, I won 4 of them!
Here's what I won!
"Precious Girls Club"
"Choosing Me Before We" book by Christine Arylo
"ProBlogger" book by Darren Rowse & Chris Garrett
"Packaging Girlhood" book by Sharon Lamb, Ed.D. and Lyn Mikel Brown, Ed.D.
This last prize was provided for Tracee's blog giveaway by Amy Jussel of Shaping Youth.
Amy shipped my prize directly to me and I just got it on Saturday! It's fun to open my mailbox and see something other than medical bills. :)
Seriously, this book looks amazing and I'm looking forward to reading it!
Since Tracee knew I already had the ProBlogger book, she kindly offered for me to select a friend to give it to so she can ship it directly to that person and save me shipping. (Thanks, Tracee)!
I asked my blogger friend Jannie Funster if she'd be interested in the ProBlogger book by Darren Rowse & Chris Garrett. She said yes. :) So Tracee is going to ship that prize directly to her.
Finally, I wanted to give a shout-out to Cassie Germsheid, of Mamas On The Web, who helped Tracee with her extensive blog re-design. Tracee's new site looks amazing and I know Cassie worked hard on it. (Pssst... Cassie is going to help me re-design my blog). :)
Cassie Germsheid - Always Busy!
Thank you to everyone for your patience. I have been dying to post this for awhile now!
I'm very grateful to these hard-working women. Every single one of them impresses me with their strength, passion, and professional work ethic.
I'm happy to have gotten to know each of these women and I'm thankful to have won these great prizes.
