Canadian and WW Giveaways I Entered

I love blog giveaways and that is what actually gave me the idea to start blogging.  I have come across a few great ones that I have entered and hope to pass that information on. The first is for 3 books from Chapters Indigo, ending April 2. It is on The Knit Wit by Shair and you can find it at .  She also has a giveaway for Uglee pens (ends March 30) at another one for pets from Biovea (ends April 10) at and one for Lays potato chips (ends April 15) at The second blog has, at this point, a low entry giveaway for Everyday Signs online baby sign language classes on 1 Heart, 1 Family (ends  April 12) at . I will try to post any great giveaways when I come across them. Hopefully, one day soon I will have one of my own!


  1. Welcome to the World of Blogging!

    I too started out as a contester and still love to enter a contest or two. Winning is twice as fun.

    There are tons of tutorials out there but a few things you might want to consider...

    1. Find your niche and rock it. Post "regularly".
    2. Post your social media links at the top so people can follow you. If you build it, they will come.
    3. There are tons of free blogger templates on the internet if this template doesn't shout Marion.
    4. Get a book on html. You don't need to know it (with Blogger) but it helps.
    5. Once you've decided you love this blogging thing, install Google Analytics (free, you can even do it now) and purchase your own domain ($10 a year). You can still have a blogger account. Makes you more attractive to Sponsors.
    6. There's so much more but I want to keep blogging fun :)
    7. Let me know if there is anything that I can do. I hope that you'll stop by The Zoo blog and Facebook Wall (!/JourneysofTheZoo2/posts/433757406691439) to enter a ton of "All Canadian Friendly" giveaways.
    8. Thanks for the Pinterest follow. I followed back.
    9. See you at the Metcalfe sale in May.

    P.S. Remove "Captcha" from your comments ;)
