I just wanted to tell you guys that you should always sign up for giveaways!
Doesn’t matter if 5 people or 1,000,000 people signed up. DO IT. Someone has to win. We all have the same odds. So why not try? I know you’re probably thinking, “It takes up too much time.” It takes 30 seconds or less. Instead of watching a cat video, you could sign up for several giveaways. And don’t lose hope when you don’t win immediately. I didn’t win right away. It took sooo long before I actually won something. In the end, It was all worth it!
Where I find giveaways:
Goodreads – Book Giveaways. I love these. Simple 2-click process and you’re entered to win. Lots of authors use this place to do their giveaways. Very popular. I have actually won 4 paperback books on there. What I like to do is search my favorite authors and go on their Goodreads page; it will show if they are having a giveaway or not.
Booklikes – This is a fairly new site. It is very similar to Goodreads, but it’s more like a social media book blogging site. They usually have a small amount of Giveaways. It’s very easy to sign up. I actually won an eBook there. Perfect timing, I need new books to read for my huge Goodreads goal this year.
Facebook – This is the almighty glorious place for giveaways. (I suggest you make a fake account, so your real Facebook won’t be bombarded with all sorts of promotional posts and ads.) Every company has a Facebook and on their accounts they have promotions and giveaways. My mom and I have been so lucky to win things on there. We got nail polish by Milani, lotion and body sprays by Bath and Body Works, $500 gift card from Victoria Secret, blankets, a Dolche Gusto NesCafe coffeemaker. (Similar to a Keurig), coupons to try food for free, and ect. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. One time she won a Mucinex blanket, its it is neon-kill-your-eyes-green. We call it the“Snot blanket”. Haha. We have been so lucky to win many things via Facebook. (Also, signup for free samples. It’s always nice to have some surprises and fun in your mail.)
Author’s website – Sometimes, very rarely though, authors will post secret giveaways on their website / blog. They want to reach out to their faithful fans, instead of shouting from the rooftops that they are having a giveaway. It’s very sweet.
Bloggers – Many fellow bloggers do giveaways or Blog Hops. To keep their page views up on their webpages. There are times when Authors or companies give things to the blogger to make an amazing giveaway.
“Here’s the mail, it never fails. It makes me want to wag my tail.
When it comes I wanna wail…
MAAAIIILLLLL!!” – Blues Clues
Basically, keep your eyes peeled, and don’t give up! It’s worth it.
P.S. I will also be updating this place if I hear of any amazing giveaway happening. c:
