Blog Giveaways ~ My new obsession

My friend, Megan, introduced me to blog giveaways recently and I'm officially hooked.  I haven't won anything yet because I just started them and most of the submission deadlines haven't passed.  But I'm finding all sorts of great things that bloggers are giving away for free!  All you have to do is follow a checklist they supply with things such as:  follow their blog, like their page on facebook, follow them on twitter, tweet their contest on twitter...and other such things.  I'm going on legit sites only that I've found recommended.  I'm sure there are some out there that aren't very trust worthy, so just have to be careful.

Now Megan's site is here:

And the post that introduced me to my first giveway is:
