    • We’re aiming for high numbers as usual; I think limiting to 2 links will help everyone achieve their goals, even more than before, this time round. 🙂 Thanks for joining us.

  9. Just letting you know that I stopped by your blog today from the ‘In The Nestwork’ site.

    Have a nice weekend mate!

  10. Paid and signed up! This is my first time… so excited. I do have a question though. I put my direct link to my email subscription and Facebook, so by doing so, I won’t get any traffic directly to my blog. Should I use my blog url post about this contest (when ready) for them to come to and then they sign up via email subscription?

    Thanks so much for this opportunity!


    • Up to you. You will get more traffic if you send people to your blog first. As long as you have an easy to see sign up for your email box near the top of your blog, it should be okay. If you have a direct link, people are more likely to subscribe during this giveaway event. There are a lot to follow as entries, so the easier the better. The incentive to put in the effort is the more changes to win these fabulous prizes. 🙂

  11. Signed up, sent my money, and working on my post. Thanks.

  12. Im accessing on my phone where I cant use paypal etc but as soon as I get home at the weekend I think this is something I will definitly get involved with!

  13. Will we get a confirmation email showing that we paid and will be participating?

  15. Hi Stacey,
    I signed up last week and forwarded you the payment. I was wondering if I could receive confirmation that I signed up and that everything is good to go? I would appreciate it 🙂 My blog is Tidbits From A Mom, located at Thanks!

  16. woops! I typed .com and not .net. I think that was the problem!

  17. I signed up today…and sent my payment…but I can’t see a text box for coding the button!
    Could be my Google Chrome…
    Would you be willing to send the coding to me via email?? I know it’s extra work…sorry 🙁 If not…I’ll just code the button myself – to come back to this link?
    Thanks in Advance 🙂

    • Glad to have you! If you could just save the image to your computer, upload to a host like Photobucket and link the code to this page it would be appreciated; it’s better for bandwidth reasons this way anyway. 🙂
