No, not that kind of late. We won’t be hearing the pitter patter of a little dog blogger typing around the house.
Nope, I’m late getting ready for the Third Annual Pet Blogger Gift Exchange. (Read about how the first Pet Blogger’s Gift Exchange began).
But better late than never, eh?
What Is The Pet Blogger’s Gift Exchange?
What feels better than getting a card or unwrapping a present?
Hearing someone say nice things about you.
And that’s what the Pet Blogger’s Gift Exchange is all about. I’ll pair interested bloggers at random. Paired bloggers will compliment, support, and encourage each other by sharing through social media or writing a special post.
I’ll set up a blog hop so everyone can see all the kind words in one place.
Sounds great, doesn’t it?
At least that’s what the more than 100 bloggers who have joined the fun in the past had to say.
How Do I Sign Up?
Go to the Rafflecopter below. Enter information about your blog and social media accounts so I can pass them onto your gift exchange partner.
I’ll be pairing bloggers next weekend and telling you who you’re matched with by Monday, December 8.
Bloggers who enter after Monday will be paired as other bloggers become available.
Oh, and one lucky blogger will win a $20 Amazon gift certificate.
After I’m Matched With A Blogger, Then What?
After you get your match, visit your blogger buddy. Read their posts. Follow them on social media.
Then write a post (or more) on your blog. Enter it in the blog hop I’ll set up. And share, share, share on social media.
We’ll keep the Pet Blogger’s Gift Exchange going until Tuesday, January 6. That way, even if you’re crazy busy while your kids are off school for winter holidays, visiting family, or finishing up your own semester’s work, you should have time to join the fun.
What If I Don’t Have A Blog?
If you like reading funny stories about pets, enjoy learning more about caring for your pet, looking at cute pictures, or hearing hopeful stories about animal welfare, thank a blogger.
Many bloggers spend hours each day writing posts and editing photographs. And very few of them cover the costs of hosting their blog.
Share the love by reading about the bloggers in the hop. Leave a nice comment. Link to your favorite posts on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.
Sorry you aren’t eligible for the giveaway this time. But I’ll have more giveaways in the coming year for you to enjoy.
Or join a great new Facebook group, Pet Contests and Giveaways, where you can find lots of cool prizes to win.
