Featured Blog of the Week~Givedaddy's Giveaway Blog

Welcome our featured blogger of the week, Susan Payton of Givedaddy's Giveaway Blog.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am Susan Peyton, and the owner of Egg Marketing & Public Relations I'm also a blogger. I love working with bloggers on the PR side of things.

Can you tell us a little bit about your blog, Givedaddy's Giveaway Blog?

I have several blogs, but let’s talk about GiveDaddy.com. GiveDaddy is a giveaway blog where we have weekly prize packs. We focus on organic, natural and eco-friendly products, and have given away toys, bath and beauty products, food, kids’ fun products and gift cards.

How did you get started blogging?

I started blogging on my marketing blog in 2006 as a way to share my marketing knowledge with business owners. Since then I’ve started a parenting blog and, of course, GiveDaddy. I’ve always loved writing so blogging was a good fit.

Any piece of advice you can offer a new blogger?

Advice to new bloggers: understand your goals in blogging and be consistent. If you’re just there to vent about your life, you can blog once in a blue moon. But if you want to build traffic and/or make money, you have to set a regular schedule of posts (I say no less than 3 a week). There will be days you don’t want to blog. I like to schedule posts in advance so on those days I’m covered!

As for giveaways, they’re a great way for people to try products they haven’t heard of. We focus on natural products because a lot of women are interested in organic or natural foods and products, but aren’t sure they’re worth the money. On GiveDaddy, we review the products (and you can trust us; if we don’t like it, we don’t give it away) to give you information that isn’t from the company. And we love hearing back from our winners on how they liked the prize. I’d encourage all your readers to check out GiveDaddy to see what we’re giving away this week. We’ve had many of our visitors win multiple times!

Thank you so much, Susan for being here today.

My thoughts on GiveDaddy:
I've been listing {and entering ;) } Givedaddy's giveaways for several months. You do have to register, but it's a very quick process & I unlike some sites you register at, no spam. Entering is incredibly easy, and the prizes are great! Some past giveaways include PlasmaCar, Baby Magic,
Jones Soda, and Treasure Dough. I like this site! So, if you haven't registered & checked out Givedaddy's yet, do so. Trust me, you do not want to miss out on these wonderful prizes!

If you'd like to have your blog as the Featured Blog of the Week, please contact me at gevin13{at}gmail{dot}com to set something up.
