Hi, Susan:

For my blog contests, i like to giveaway EC credits, free domain names, and/or cash.

I have also been looking into the Google blogger products, those are pretty cool.

And who can go wrong with a WordPress hoodie.

Those are my giveaway prizes. Not terribly creative, but they are wanted by bloggers.

Good post, Missy.

I am partnered with a local tie business and they have given me permission to give a tie away. How do you recommend I go about giving away a tie on my blog?

These are high quality ties that get a lot of positive feedback.
