Hey girls, aly here! It's time again for the chat summary for Sunday's chat! I must say, going into the topic, I didn't think I would have much to say, but I ended up really enjoying this topic and learned a lot about what other #bbloggers think as well! As always, if you would like to sign up to do a summary, you can do so here. And please remember to be kind to the person writing the summary, since they are taking time out of their day to do so! Also, please, please, PLEASE remember to vote each week! We only had 53 votes this week, and at one point - we were getting over 200, I'm not sure what has happened, but please - vote & remind others to vote! :) xo
I was really
excited when Aly Marie from Wonderland
Beauty tweeted me in the week asking if I would like to
write the BBloggers Summary for this week!
The topic for
this week is ‘All about Giveaways, when
you should do them, ideas about rules, what to include etc.’
you can vote for which topic you would like to see on the Sunday chats. Please
don’t forget to cast your vote as it’s your chance to help decide what we are going
to be chatting about!
week only 50 people voted which is a shame as there used to be over 200 votes
for the Sunday Chats at one point. I’m not sure if that is because we are near
Christmas and every one is quite busy with Christmas parties and Christmas
shopping etc which is understandable of course! But I really do hope the votes
start to pick up again soon!
enough rambling from me lets start with the summary!
Generally bbloggers love giveaways, whether it’s to
hold them or to enter them. A lot of #bbloggers said it’s a nice way to have a
chance of winning products you might not necessarily be able to afford yourself
Not all #bbloggers can afford to buy products for
giveaway and running a lot of giveaways can be expensive and time consuming
#BBloggers are also aware that by doing giveaways, you
open yourself up to ‘fake followers’ who will only follow you while you are
running the giveaway and unfollow again as soon as the giveaway is closed and a
Many #Bbloggers feel giveaways should be held during
milestone follower marks, for example 100 followers or 500 followers.
Giveaways are generally thought of as a nice way to
say thank you to loyal followers
Doing giveaways just to gain followers is not very
popular amongst #bbloggers
For giveaway rules, following on Twitter and GFC for a
giveaway is popular. On the one hand. Constantly sharing and tweeting about a
giveaway can get a little out of hand, but on the other hand it is a nice way
to find new blogs.
Popular giveaway prizes include prizes where the
winner can choose the shade (of a lipstick for example), popular beauty
products and product that the #BBlogger running the giveaway loves too!
If you are doing a giveaway or a swap make sure you
send the prize as it’s not fair otherwise!
as always, everyone agrees that it’s your blog, so you shouldn’t feel like you
have to follow any rules and you should do whatever you think fits in with your
always, the chat went really quick and at the end all #Bbloggers swapped links
that’s it for my summary, and I have included a few tweets of some #Bbloggers
It was lovely chatting to everyone again, and let’s try and get more
than 50 votes for next weeks #Bbloggers chat
I’d like to say a big thank you
to Aly Marie for asking me to write this summary. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading
