Comment To Win!

Comment on any blog post on and win a sidebar ad

Every month, starting December 1, 2013, I will randomly pick one blog commenter at the end of each month, and offer her/ him, a free 30-day 150×150 sidebar ad (worth $25) on my blog. All you have to do is comment on at least two posts for the specific month to be in the draw. 

The “winner” can choose to advertise her/ his blog or Etsy shop or business. For free. For 30 days. If the “winner” decides not to take up the offer (but why wouldn’t you?), she/ he can choose to pass it on to a deserving friend. 

Why am I doing this? For a few reasons.

  1. I love my readers and this community. You guys have been here for me, reading, commenting, sharing, just being a friend. It’s my way of showing you appreciation. 
  2. Bring commenting back. Do you feel like I do, that blog commenting is no longer like before? I truly believe (always have, always will) that the comment section is where people connect. Not just between me, the blog writer, and you the blog reader. But between the commenters. I don’t know why comments have dropped off, but I’d really love to see a comeback. Let’s talk.
  3. I think it’s a good way to highlight blogs and small businesses I may not necessarily know very well, or at all. It’s a great way to introduce you to other amazing people. 

Terms and conditions:

  • You have to comment on a minimum of two blog posts for that specific month to qualify for the draw. It’d be great if your comment wasn’t just a “Great blog post” because we’re here to encourage genuine commenting, and you’re not just doing it to win (I don’t mince my words, do I?).
  • I do reserve the right to reject ads for blogs and businesses that I feel are not appropriate for this blog and its readers. You know, things like adult-only toys/ blogs (we are a family blog here), political or religious blogs (because I’m so sorry, I can’t go there), blogs that discriminate against people based on gender, race, sexual orientation, their jobs, and so on. 
  • I will pick the month’s winner on the final day of the month, email him/ her immediately with instructions on how to get the ad up by the 1st of the following month.  If the ad spots are full, the winner will be queued up for the next available spot. 
  • If I don’t hear from the winner within 24 hours, I will pick another winner. 
  • You can ‘enter’ this as often as you like. 

If you have any questions, email me at alison {at) writingwishing {dot} com.

Should you feel that you want to buy an ad anyway, because you love me and/ or you’re awesome like that, just click the Sponsor/ Advertise page!
