Everybody loves freebies. Free taste, free wi-fi, free whatever. And since I am currently enjoying my blogger mode, I came to know the world of blogger’s giveaways! And mind you, they are aplenty. You’re only investment is time and your best judgement if that particular giveaway is something you like or worth your time.
Okay so, a few months ago, I was invited to join a Facebook group of warm and accommodating Filipino bloggers here and abroad, Filipino Bloggers Forum. There I met the pros (they really are!), joined their blog hopping and blog commenting activities. I specially liked the idea of being part of the blogging community and learning from my co-bloggers.They are truly a source of inspiration for a new blogger like me.
Anyways, as I blog hopped, I stumbled upon Kikay Corner and her blog about her giveaway last October. Any girl, specifically a stressed mother-online worker-homemaker, would of course fancy a FREE trip to the spa for a relaxing body massage plus a luxurious diamond peel treatment. Simply irresistible, isn’t it? I willingly joined her giveaway which was actually simple: just a sincere comment on that blog post!
Days went on, the “contest” slipped off my mind due to the usual hustles and bustles at home. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, I got an email asking me for my shipping address, because I just won the giveaways and she’s sending me the gift certificates (GCS)!! It was a happy day indeed.
By the way I got 2 food GCs for Sumo Sam and Stackers (since the ones for massage and diamond peel at the spa have expiration dates and there would be no way I’d be in Manila on the first week of November) plus a bottle of Panoxyl. Not bad still, right? In fact I’m so excited coz ill be using it with a good friend later this month.
Are you feeling inspired already? Start blog hopping now and scout for worthy giveaways you would like to participate in. – Louiseinthehouse
