Blogging Events

These are the upcoming events 
that I am participating in: 

Now that the 30 Days 30 Giveaways event is over, I want to concentrate on my sponsors for 2 upcoming blogging events. BlogFest and BlogMania are both happening in September. For both of them I will have giveaway packages totalling over $100 (for each event). I will be featuring the shops who have been kind enough to sponsor me for the events  from now until September. 

September 10 to 12th. This new event has several hundred participants already signed up! There will be lots of giveaways (each blog has one)! 

I'll be providing some items from my Studioahimsa shop, but there will also be items from these shops:

-Sweetheart hair clip from Green Pickles Shop 

I also have for giveaway a handmade knitted scarf (worth $60)

September 15 to 16th. This enormous blogging event draws thousands of visitors to the 175 blogs participating. Each blog has an item or package of items worth at least $125! 
BlogMania - 
I will be doing a theme called "a Winning Persona" and will have different prizes for each of the main personas on my blog. I'll provide some stationary and maybe a necklace and print as well. We'll see how many sponsors I get! :) I would love to have more than 1 sponsor for each persona and will consider any offers!

Past Events

June 4th was my day! Pinitforward is an event that is taking place from May 24th to July 7th. It is co-hosted by Pinterest, a new bookmarking site where you can "pin" anything you find online to different pin boards, and sfgirlbybay (this link takes you to the page listing all 300 participants). I wrote a post about the event here: Pinterest Bookmarking Fun!

June 1- 30, I posted a giveaway/feature each day. Other posts throughout the month were birthday/milestone related. I had several interviews and guest posts.
