My initial purpose for my blog was to document for MYSELF, my big girl pants, my 2011, my 365 days of playing dress like a woman;  the blog was so that I had a point of reference-where I began, my growth, my end of the year result.  I was hoping the blog would force accountability and action.  I never dreamed that I would have a tiny following and LOVE it!  I am so encouraged by comments, blog stats, participation, etc.  I feel, for lack of a better word, "liked".  This is a good feeling!  This is a feeling I miss; not because I normally feel disliked, it's because for years I have avoided interacting.  So, thanks (blushing).

Back to the point of my post: Giveaways.  I never thought I would be doing giveaways.  I AM LOVING IT.  It is an opportunity for me to experiment in style/fashion AND allow readers to do the same!  I am really excited about it!  I actually have quite a few giveaways lined up (some aren't until spring due to a new line).  Here is a sneak peek; I cannot contain my excitement!

(These items are not necessarily items that you will win; these are just SOME items from each store that will be sponsoring a giveaway...more than likely, if you win, you will get to select ANY item from their store!)

Now, business:  The more readers I have, the more likely it is that stores will want to sponsor a giveaway (more readers=more potential customers for sponsoring stores;  Stores sponsor giveaways because it is a good way for their product to gain exposure,  creates traffic to their site/shop, and caters to a market group that more than likely already has an interest in the type  of product they are selling.  It's basically free advertising for the sponsor).  If you want more awesome giveaways, the next step is to get more readers/participants in the giveaways.  ALSO, if you know anyone who has an Etsy store, makes jewelry, sells Mary Kay, whatever, and would like to be a sponsor for a giveaway, have them email me.
