Have a family-friendly blog. Remit the $15 participation fee via PayPal (I will email you the address to which to remit payment to; this is what will pay for the iPad2/$550 cash and hopefully for some advertising of the event as well). Submit your GFC follow link (a.k.a. your blog's home page) for a mandatory entry plus ONE and only ONE other link (to your Twitter profile, Facebook fan page, email subscription, etc.) for an optional entry. That's right–to make entering simple for entrants, each blog is only allowed their GFC and one other link (making 2 links total per blog). Write a post about the giveaway and include the Rafflecopter form for others to enter (participants will receive this code at a later date). Schedule said post (item #4) to publish on October 17, 2011, at 12:01 AM EST and inform your readers that the deadline to enter is October 31, 2011, at 11:59 PM EST. Display the event's button or banner on your sidebar or above the fold on your blog (but NOT in a scrolling widget as few people will see it there; the more people who see the button/banner, the more traffic).
- As a participating blogger, you will NOT be allowed to enter the iPad2/$550 cash giveaway (sorry!). But you will be able to take full advantage of all the numbers it boosts!
- Please do blog and share with your "likers", followers, and those you network with about this event! The more who know, the more traffic!
