My 1st Giveaway!

I am so excited that I've been getting more followers lately! I think I went from July to September with 1 follower!(my sister! :0) I am up to 41...which may not seem like a lot to some bloggers but to me it's awesome! My mini book tutorial seemed to be a big hit so I have decided to have a giveaway for one of them. Next Sunday, Jan. 15th I will draw one name from any of my followers who posts a comment here!

Birgit said...

Hi Wendy,

The easiest way to get followers is simply to visit other bloggers and inviting them to your blog. :) I had several giveaways in the last years (wanna win an Oktoberfest T-shirt -- come over to my blog!), and I never required anyone to become a follower. Still one or another signed up as follower -- that's surely great. :) Anyway, I am a new follower, as I like your art blog. It wasn't easy though -- your background acts up after a while, making it impossible to click on anything. Strange -- maybe a current bug of some sort (on your end or my end -- who knows?).

Happy creating,
Birgit

PS: Oh, and thanks for the chance to win one of your awesome mini books!

Pandora said...
