You have probably heard by now that Google Reader is going away on July 1st. Well, Google Reader may be going away, but I don’t want YOU to go away, so I hope that you will consider following my blog through Bloglovin’! I know that change is hard…so I thought I might sweeten it up for you a little bit!
I am doing a giveaway for all of my fabulous followers that take the leap and switch over to Bloglovin’. You may have already switched over! In that case, this will be an easy entry!
If you have not yet switched or are not following my blog through Bloglovin’, then there are a few easy steps to follow. You can go to my sidebar (that’s the column on the right over there that shows my followers) and you can click the button that says, “Follow this blog with bloglovin’.” Or, you can go into the Rafflecopter below and click the link in the first entry, and that will take you to my blog on Bloglovin’.
You will need to set up an account with Bloglovin’ so that you can follow me. Please be sure to leave your Bloglovin’ username in the Rafflecopter entry. Since I can’t see the list of all of my followers (yet), I am asking that you “like” this post on Bloglovin’ after you become a follower. I can see who has liked the post, so that will be a way for me to verify the winners!
If you want to go ahead and move all of the blogs you follow from Google over, you can go to this link and it will take you through the super easy steps. BUT, please go to my Bloglovin’ link and make sure that you are following me through Bloglovin’ since there have been some glitches with the imports. To be sure, make sure that the blue button at the top of my Bloglovin’ page has been clicked (it should be gray with the word following- if it’s blue, please click it to follow!)
So, if you follow me with Bloglovin’, please enter my giveaway!! I will be picking 3 WINNERS– there will be one GRAND PRIZE winner who receives JIVEY’S BIG BOX OF FREE STUFF plus their choice of ANY UNIT FROM MY TPT STORE! What’s in the box?? You’ll have to wait and see! But I can promise you, it’s some of my favorite things! The other two winners will also get to choose ANY UNIT FROM MY TPT STORE!
