Twitter Hashtags For Giveaways

Hosting a giveaway on your blog can be an effective & fun way to increase your traffic & social numbers. I organize and co-host many giveaways throughout the year and Twitter is one of the best social sites for getting the work out. People that like entering contests and giveaways, track these hashtags so make sure they see your giveaway!

I also try to include a hashtag that is currently trending for some extra traction. Look for ones that have days of the week in them, like #GoodSaturday or #SundayMorning. Save this to Pinterest – Continue reading »

The Bloggers Guide To Using StumbleUpon

Hi friends! If you know me from some of the blogging groups on Facebook, or maybe you’re in mine, you probably know I love StumbleUpon.
