Breaking Dawn Countdown Giveaway 4-week Blog Hop!


 

Counting down the days to the Breaking Dawn premiere?

So are we!  And we’re so excited, we’re giving away swag.  Every week.  For four weeks.  Starting one month before the movie releases!

Since 4 weeks is a lot to commit to, we’ve set this up as four individual blog hops that will run back to back.  You can choose to do whichever and however many you want… do the first one, or the third one, or all of them!  We have a separate signup post for each week, linked below.

What is a Giveaway Hop?

It’s as simple as it sounds: we all give something away and link up our blogs so readers can hop from one to the next to enter the contests.  Lots of potential prizes for the readers and prospective new subscribers and followers for the bloggers! Win-win!

Here’s how it works:

  • Bloggers: Click the link for the week(s) you want to participate in and follow the instructions on the post.  Sign up, link back to us via an announcement post and/or sidebar widget, and give away something Twilight-related at the end of the week(s).  There is no minimum or maximum value for what you give away.  What and how you give away your prize is completely up to you, as long as it is Twilight-related in some way!  (Gift cards to booksellers or even e-readers are fine, since the Twilight books can be read on them, as well as dvds, soundtrack cds, swag… etc)
  • Readers: Starting at whichever blog link you initially followed into the Hop, read the contest instructions and enter the giveaway, then click the Giveaway Hop badge to return here to GraveTells, and go to the next blog on the list.  Rinse, repeat, win cool Twilight stuff!

 

The Rules

  • The Breaking Dawn Countdown Giveaway Hop badge image needs to be part of your giveaway post.  See the links below for the badges for the individual weeks.
  • If participating in multiple weeks, you must create a new post for EACH week you are participating in, meaning you need to also sign up for the linky on each one and make a new post on your blog about each week so that readers can enter them separately.
  • You must link back to the announcement page(s) for the week(s) you are participating in OR include the linky list with all the participating blogs at the end of your post(s).
  • Keep it somewhat simple and easy to enter by having no more than one (1) mandatory entry and no more than six (6) optional entries.  Daily tweets optionals are okay.
  • The prize(s) you give away must be Twilight-related in some way.
  • Please state whether or not your giveaway is open to international entries, and if so which countries.
  • The giveaway and prize must be specifically for this hop and not shared with any other concurrent giveaway or hop you are participating in or hosting.
  • Keep your giveaway easy to find for the entire 7 days each hop is open.  If you post often and your post does not stay near the top of your main blog page then please post a link to your giveaway at the top of your blog or sidebar. If we can’t easily find your giveaway you will be deleted from the linky.
