You have TWO ways to enter:

1) Tell me how you find blogs to read?  By recommendation, searching?  How?


2) Tweet about the giveaway and then come here and leave a comment that you tweeted.  You can make something up, but if you are all lazy like I am, you can just copy and paste this:

I love blogging and I love giveaways!  Enter to win with @ksluiter and @sofiemcom!

That’s it!

Of course you should go browse (and then buy!) in her shop.

You should follow her sweetness on twitter.

This giveaway ends Sunday, January 30 at noon est.  Winners will be chosen by and posted that same day.

The fine print: is providing the spoils for this giveaway.  I have gotten nothing in return other than the joy of giving you something I love from someone I love.

  6. I find new blogs through the blogs I read regularly. I just open new tab after new tab while I am reading a blog that links to another! Before I know it, I have dozens of tabs open! My husband gives me a hard time about this, but I can’t help it! There are so many talented bloggers out there!

  17. I find blogs to read through friends’ blogrolls – If I like their blog then I assume I’ll like their blog roll, as well! It’s worked well so far, and you’re proof!

  18. I find blogs basically entirely through links on other blogs – I figure there is a good chance that if I like the person I’m reading, the people they like might write in a similar niche or theme and therefore, I might also like them. It’s a never ending circle because each new blog I find that I like, they lead me to more blogs!
