#BloggerSupport – Amazing Giveaway to EMB and Aha!NOW Members

Extra, come on and read all about it here on EMB! That’s right, it’s our first ever giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a ‘blogger support marathon – amazing giveaway to EMB and Aha!NOW community members.’

Okay I can see the puzzled look on your faces. A giveaway? Seriously? You heard right. I am not waiting until I have all the plugins in place – we are going big now and we are doing it all during the month of November 2014. Guess what time that is? It’s the month in which there is that one day set aside called “Thanksgiving Day.” We all say a special thank you, don’t we?

Now those of you that’s been following my blog since January 2012, you will realize by now that gratitude has become a part of my lifestyle. I practice it daily and I have noticed tremendous benefits.

You would have noted also in my most recent post on gratitude which you can read hereย in case you missed it, I took it a step further to show how gratitude is a building block for inner peace and tranquility.

What does that have to do with this post? Well I’m glad you asked.

Gratitude Move You To Love Genuinely

Earlier this year 2014, a stoke of faith connected me to one of the most amazing blogs called Aha!NOW that I have come across to date. As if it was intentionally designed to be that way by Divine Providence, we both share the same philosophies and principles. Our niche is pretty much the same.

It started to get better and in recent weeks, I began to connect with some amazing people online through the Aha!NOW Blogging Community, who have become my online family. This community has become our virtual home with Matriarch Harleena Singhย as Founder, CEO, principal writer and chief editor and Patriarch Vinay Kachhara, a writer and blogger himself right there beside her at the helm of their blog.

Many of my online friends from that community have taken the time from their busy schedule to come over and support my blog whether through their comment and kind words of encouragement or sharing my posts on the different social media networks.

The unwavering support they have given to me in my recent guest post on Aha!NOW entitled How To Cope With Teenage Pregnancy As A Parent and their participation in theย Family Life Network Groupย have not gone un-noticed. I say,

thank you1

 

Want To Know What The Giveaway Is All About? ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, as an expression of my gratitude to you for your unwavering support for my blogs, for the entire month of November I am running a #bloggersupport marathon in which I will be giving my fellow bloggers an opportunity to guest post on my blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

Get ready because this is a crazy giveaway! The plan is to have up to 20 guest bloggers on my blog to do a guest post. That is unheard of right?

With no raffleย copter, no top commentator plugin, no scoring system and no leader board to show you who is in the lead, how is this going to be possible to know who the winners are?

Don’t worry, stick with me. We will have lucky winners at my choice and discretion and you will be notified via email.

Disclaimer: This is not a paid post or review. All ideas, thoughts and suggestions are of my own free will. This is my way of showing appreciation and giving back to readers, followers and supporters of EMB.

As an added bonus giveaway, 5 guest bloggers also stand a chance of having their blog listed as a reference in my Resource Center page. Now that is something to be proud of! ๐Ÿ™‚

How Do You Qualify?ย 

Here are some basic rules that will qualify you:

  • Subscribe to EMB and join our community
  • Comment on posts all through the month of October – blogger support is what I call it. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Whatever social media sites you are on such as Twitter, Facebook and Google+ please share posts and include #bloggersupportmarathon/EMB
  • You must be a member of the Aha!NOW Blog Community. Here is your chance to head over, register here and interact with us. While you are there, join one of the community groups, especially the Family Life Network group which will place you at an even greater advantage of winning your guest post spot.
  • Follow EMB on Facebook and when you do, leave a comment and be sure to include #bloggersupportmarathon/EMB
  • Even after winning the giveaway, you should be able to deliver a post that is not only impressive but helpful to our readers based on the niches of EMB, or else you will face disqualification.

  1. OMG I missed this one !

    BTW, I’ll bounce back to blog hopping soon. Meanwhile, You’ve allied with one of the most amazing bloggers we have today. It’s not by chance. It’s divine timing for both you and Harleena. I can see you both moving like a tsunami – breaking every barrier on your way

    Good luck dear friends

    • Hi Enstine

      Welcome back. I am so appreciative of the fact that you actually took the time out from your busy schedule to stop by and leave a comment. Your kind words are very encouraging.

      You are an amazing blogger yourself – and having developed Broadednet http://broaded.net/ I will say you are indeed a genius of plugins and the king of blogging, hence you are breaking barriers as well.

      Thanks my friend and have a great day/weekend. Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Yvonne!
    I love this idea! I also like what you mentioned in the post that you are not waiting till all the plugins are installed. Such a great idea to jump right in with an innovative contest instead of waiting for the perfect moment.

    I am quite impressed to see the collaboration between the bloggers at AHA and your site. I remember Harleena mentioning that one of the more important returns of building a great blog was the collaborative friendship that she developed with many bloggers.

    I think that this idea is spot on because the proper collaboration and involving others is a must and nothing meaningful is achieved in isolation. I think that I am learning a lot about collaboration and contests from you all at AHA and through your post and your blog.

    Thanks a lot for the post!

      It is so great to see you here my friend and for giving such a wonderful feedback. You know it is easy to say, well why not wait to have this or that in place before making the next move. But then time passes and you are still stuck at the idea so I decided to make the plunge.

      The idea of collaboration is great and I believe it’s among the best way to foster healthy relationships, to build lasting friendship and to grow in the community.

      One of the things I realise too in blogosphere is that beyond the good content and having a nice blog template, if you are not mixing, mingling among other bloggers it’s difficult to grow your audience/fan base. But overall I have learned a lot too over at Aha!NOW among our other fellow bloggers.

      Thanks again for your valuable time and input here. Have a great rest of the week.

    • Hi Ravi

      Glad you love the giveaway idea. I realize nowadays we as bloggers have to become more creative in the way that we market our blog, attract readers and also to retain them. We know that could be a bit of a challenge. Still we have to try.

      I look forward to having you over on my blog to do a guest post, so best of luck with reserving your spot.

      Have a great rest of the week. It’s hump day already. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Swadhin

      Lol ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved the idea of referring to Harleena and Vinay as the matriarch and patriarch. Not in a way as in age, but more like the governing team who is in charge of ABC and yes they do look out for their readers and followers making sure everything go according to plan. Glad we met and look forward to us interacting on a continual basis in the community. Blessings! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Hi Yvonne,

    Awesome indeed! This is such an innovative Giveaway, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making it so special for us by including my blog in it too – indeed a way of giving thanks for Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ™‚

    And what a co-incidence that today, we too shared a post, expressing our thanks to wonderful community members like you, because of which our blog community is what it is – no one could be better (of course I linked this post into mine just now as I read it later). I appreciate you for all that you do and for always being there.

    May the best person win, and yes, 20 guest posts is just so different and everyone is surely going to avail this opportunity.

    Thanks once again, and we so appreciate you and your efforts. Have a nice week ahead ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You know Harleena when I saw your post http://www.aha-now.com/gems-ahanow-october-2014/ I thought WOW what a coincidence!! It gave me an awesome feeling ๐Ÿ™‚ I felt so honored. I must say thank you also for the encouragement, motivation and the inspiration that you have given to me over these past months.

      When I thought about a giveaway for my blog, I did not initially see how that would be possible with not having certain plugins etc but then once I started to write the post, the ideas just began to flow. I think it came together nicely – you call it innovative ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy to include my Aha!NOW family in it.

      Have a blessed day! ๐Ÿ™‚
