Pay it forward ~ 2012

A couple nights ago I read a post by Reviews From My First Reads Shelf and it really got me thinking.

AimeeKay, talking about paying it forward by doing a giveaway for the first few people who commented on the post and then doing a Pay it forward giveaway themselves.  (you can read the post HERE) and I thought it would be super fun to do!

So Here I am,  putting together the post.  But. . . I am going to add my own little twist to it.

*Five Ten people are going to win a **surprise prize!  And I am gonna tell you how.  . .

Instead of doing your own Pay It Forward post (Which I HIGHLY recommend you do)

The first five people to FOLLOW Reviews From My First Reads Shelf  and then comes back here and leaves a comment gets a prize.
The First Five people to SHARE somebody else's blog  (It does not have to be mine) on one of their social sites (Blogger, Twitter, Facebook. . . etc)  and then comes back here and leaves a comment gets a prize.  (Don't forget to leave the link you shared in the comments so I can check it out as well. )

Ready. .. set. . . .go!

*Only one prize per person .  Though you are highly encouraged to do both of these things.  If you do please let me know in the comments.  Also don't forget to leave your e-mail in the comments so that I can contact you for shipping information.

** While the prize will stay a surprise,  I can tell you that your prize will be a homemade gift is someway.  It can be anything from Jewelry to Hand decorated Notebooks to Wall art. . . etc

How long will this be going on?  Until I have ten people to give prizes to!


  1. I follow Reviews From My First Reads Shelf

  3. Awesome! Glad you liked the idea! Thank you for posting about it!
    Just wanted to clarify one thing though. I already have the people I am sending homemade prezzies to. But anyone who comments, etc. will be entered to win special prezzie at the end of the year. (just check the post for other ways to get entries)

    Thanks again for sharing!

  4. (also no need to add me to the contest since sharing my blog is really a great present for me! Thanks again!)

    1. You are indeed correct that there is no 'NEED'. That doesn't mean that I can't or shouldn't. :D

  5. ok, so i followed your First Reads blog. That's a really cool site and I didn't know about that part of Goodreads...will have to check it out.

  6. i followed your reviews from my first reads shelf and now i'm on my way to find another awesome blog to share : ) i don't have a blog, but i love the idea of doing something to pay it forward. thanks for doing this!

  7. I follow Your First Reads Blog and I shared your blog on my FB page and my twitter page @msuar13. Don't know if I am doing this right so may not be eligible for prize, but I like what you are doing. It is very admirable.
