BLOGGY GIVEAWAY-Laura Ashley Size 4 NWT

/
46 Comments

I so desperately need help with my blog, that I decided to join the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival.

I decided to give away this CUTE size 4 NWT Laura Ashley Outfit to the randomly selected participant that leaves comments with suggestions to help LIVEN UP MY BLOG
(i.e. templates, sound, color, readers).

Ways you can enter:

  1. Leave a comment with suggestion and directions to spruce up my page.

  2. Have your own blog? Then blog about my giveaway and leave a comment with the direct link to the post for 2 entries.
  3. Leave a comment on any of my other posts here on my blog. The comment must be insightful- not just "hi" or "I agree". Add your own thoughts, opinions, ideas, similar experience, etc. You will receive 1 extra entry for each comment you leave (only 1 comment per post will count though). This means every time I post something new you could get another entry if you leave a comment about it (plus all the posts I've already made!)

Please post only one suggestion with your email/blog address (yet feel free to blog and comment on other posts), and until 1200(CT) August 2, I will accept suggestions.


All posts will be entered into the drawing and a randomly selected winner will be notified via email. You need not have a blog to enter, but experience is always the best teacher.




Thanks for all of your help in advance.

You should go to onecuteblog.blogspot.com
That is where I learned out to get a cute blog background!

ho how cute i love to win this for my little girl thanks

Liz said...

My suggestion is to link up to other blogs and exchange buttons with them. The bloggy carnival also has several blog makeover contest that could help. And finally give yourself a break your not even a month old yet.

My little girl would look so cute in this outfit!

One of my contests is for some blog help. When you have time, stop by and check it out!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I like your background but the sides look so empty. You should expand your "About me" with a little more background and add some links or icons.

Reeva said...

join a webring and make your blog something that you'll want to keep come back to and so will others :)

How about recipes?

nosmallthing said...

I think the best way to jazz up a blog is to add pictures in your posts... and maybe in the sidebars, too. I have to do this sometime on my own site!!!

I love the outfit, thanks for offering it up!

I second the idea of using pictures in your posts, though even I don't always take the time to do that. They add interest and help break up the reading a bit.

Well I'm at work and lots of things don't show up properly, but your font is black and your background is grey, that's a bit hard to see.

Add pictures and you can change up the fonts and colors. Make it fun and reflect your personality :-)

Your background and boarder is really cute, I think adding a cute header with a picture of some kind would really pretty it up nicely. You can also do a free, and easy to make, slideshow over at Photo Bucket (see mine on my blog to see what I am talking about).

Christina said...

Your page is cute, BUT could use a header! That would add A LOT of more color to your page! (Like I should talk. None of mine are the best...)
Anyhoo, LOVE the border!
Please enter moi...

Stacy said...

I am not a blogger however, I am a blog reader. I enjoy looking at pictures of the persons blog I am reading. I think that you should have something else on the sides of the page. I agree that you should give yourself a break since you are new to the blog world.
I commented on your Coach post.

Sandra said...

I agree with adding pictures. It really makes everything more relatable to the reader...whether you are describing something you made or just showing a picture of yourself...

Lisa said...

Adding some pictures, maybe some link buttons to fun things, and other blogs. (I dont blog) maybe some music.

To liven up your blog I would simplify your background and color scheme - do with something clean and minimal. Then concentrate on the content - add links to the sidebar, etc.

Thanks.

Jenn said...

Adorable! My four year old would love this.

I think your background is PERFECT! The only thing it needs, in my opinion is a cute header to go with it. If you find a moment, could you share with me how you got the cute background? I have a lot of digital scrapbooking pages I'd love to add to my blog, but haven't figured out HOW.

Well, your blog would definitely look great with a nice theme. Check out the themes here: http://www.eblogtemplates.com/blogger/

Memarie Lane said...

Your background is great, I'd recommend a custom header to go with it. Summer at Summer's Designs (her button in my sidebar) makes great ones for only $10. She designed mine.

Rebecca said...

Getting a custom header that reflects you and what your blog is about would really spruce it up.

Suzanne said...

Change the background color!

mrscjallen said...

May I suggest a new header...something that just screams YOU! If you can afford it, pay someone to do it. If you can't afford it...I'm sure there are tutorials and such out there for the learning.

sherri419 said...

Pictures and graphics will really help to brighten your blog. Also, put some buttons on your sidebars to other people's blogs that you really like and get them to do the same for you. you are off to a really good start!!!!

pj said...

include instant win contests and get your subscribers to tell u if they've won...to encourage others

Sarah said...

Look at you jumping in with the bloggy festival! I'm just making an attempt at getting more serious with my blog myself. I agree that a fun header would be nice. I need to add one to mine too. I've been checking out all the other blogs in the carnival to get ideas for what I like & don't like. Best wishes! (Oh, and I have a little size 4 girl. I'm just saying).

Cristina said...

I love photos, whether they're of people I know or not. So maybe adding some photos.

A regular funny commentary always makes me go back to a blog too.

Goo dluck!

Ginny said...

I love your blog background, I'm assuming it is new since the first comment tells you to go there.

Very pretty though, good choice!

Posting at least a few times a week, include pictures or graphics in posts. Either your own or free clip art, etc.

Visit other blogs, comment at other blogs, maybe start a blogroll.

I think the biggest thing, is posting frequently & visiting other blogs.

You could start with some of the things around the web like Wordless Wednesday, Tackle it Tuesday, Smart Habit Saturday, etc.

Chelsey said...

My 4 yr old is starting school this Sept and this would be perfect for her!

I'm not a blogger, but I think that the top box (with Fysty Mama and the summary in it) needs to be a bright colour (ie: hot pink to match the stripes on the sides).

I always love photos because they personalize things more.

kamewh said...

I love seeing pictures in posts also brightening up the background a little bit :) Thank you for the giveaway!:)

Amanda Perin said...

I say add a few pictures of that adorable child of yours to the walls, find a great picture for your header (can even be an un-copyrighted photo from google images) and add your favorite music with playlist.com.

Heck, I'd even help you will the editing...send me an email.

My daughter would look adorable in the Laura Ashley Outfit! Thanks for the opprotunity!

Cute outfit. I would give it to my daughter. Your blog could use more texture on the tan part, more photos. I don't know much about blog design but I like the borders and the colors you have.

I am new to blogging and am still working on technical stuff. So I am not much help.Something that is fun to experiement with is Widgetbox, you can google it and it will come right up. It has many fun things like weather and horoscopes. I would love to win that outfit-I love Laura Ashley!

Alyce said...

I would change the color behind the text. My eyesight is not the best, and it's a little hard on the eyes. Other than that I don't have any criticisms. Maybe add a list of blogs you frequent and some fun buttons.

Kristan said...

i think you should get a more interesting header. not that mine is interesting, but i'm not interested in upgrading right now. :)

claire said...

Fun-my daughter is almost a 4T and would look great in this outfit! Check out cutestblogontheblock.blogspot.com for some great blog templates. Maybe you could put a picture in your header, too! Thanks for the giveaway. claireroach81(at)hotmail(dot)com

Meg said...

Try a header to spice things up. I don't usually love music on blogs, but sometimes it is a nice touch. Sorry, I can't teally talk... my blog is pretty boring. It looks like you are off to a great start. I really like your side borders.

I would love to win this for my daughters! They can pass it down and get a ton of use out of it.

My tip, go to my blog and read this post http://crunchygreenmom.blogspot.com/2008/07/thank-you-to-modern-mamas.html

It is to a woman who does free blog backgrounds, she's amazing! This will help spruce it up!!

CanCan said...

I made my own banner (I know nothing about html) by googling "free banner maker html" or something like that. Maybe it was "free custom banner maker". My husband thinks it is lame but I think I did a pretty good job!

christene said...

Shhhh, you know no one looks good in stripes right. They are distracting and need to go. Your header should be a solid/brighter color, hard to read right now. There are some great contests out there for blog makeovers. Good luck with your blog.

Colleen said...

A happy little picture of yourself in the corner would help make your page more warm and accessible. The stripes are a bit loud. I'm not saying they have to go, but they need some other strong design element to balance them out. Hope you have a great weekend!
