  7. Hi there, I just signed up for the Blogoversary.  I also signed up for the NYE event as well.  Both payments came from

      That’s great! Thanks for letting me know and welcome aboard! I will get you added to the NYHE linky as soon as possible. I did get the Paypal notification for the blogoversary sign up, but not NYHE. Just thought you should know “just in case”.

    • MatterofCents says:

      Disregard the part about not receiving the notification for NYHE. Plus, I just added you to the linky a few minutes ago. Kiddos are distracting me…You should have received an email from me welcoming you to the NYHE event. Thanks again.

  8. How many blogs are participating in the giveaway that costs $15? Is that all I would need to pay or would I also need to provide a prize. Thanks so much for these opportunities!

    • MatterofCents says:

      Only two have signed up so far. Yes, the $15 covers your for everything listed in the post. No need for you to do anything else. I will do all of the work to promote the giveaway. 🙂 If you’re willing to share with your readers/fans/followers when it goes live, that would be great!

  9. Ok – I am going to do this 🙂 (I wrote on the other one but I think I will do this first.) This will be my first giveaway like this so could you give me a suggestion about What would you like your DAILY entry option to be?  and What would you like me to SHARE on Facebook for you? *

    • MatterofCents says:

      If you added your blog to Picket Fence, your “daily” can be to vote for you each day or it could be to check out the giveaways on your blog, tweet etc. Your Facebook share can be a brief description about your blog, if you have an event coming up you would like people to know about, a general shout-out, etc. Same goes for the tweet.

  10. Ok I sent in my form and payment.

  11. congrats!

  12. What would you like me to put on my blog for this giveaway?
