  • This hop has a limit of 6 possible entries.  Only 1 can be mandatory and other must be optional.  Be aware that many people do not have a twitter or facebook account.  If your mandatory entry requires to follow you on twitter or like you on facebook you are automatically excluding people who may want to enter.  
  • Your blog & giveaway must be family friendly.  If you have steamy book covers in your header or sidebar you will be deleted from the linky.  I should be completely comfortable viewing your site with my husband or any one of my 5 children sitting by my side. If in doubt please ask.  I’ve been a little lax in the past but beginning with this hop I will be much more strict.
  • Your giveaway must be specifically for the hop.
  • If you are using rafflecopter… Set the rafflecopter to begin accepting entries on DECEMBER 31st and to stop accepting entries on JANUARY 8th. Use caution when using weighted entries.  If you mark a task as being worth +10 that counts as 10 entries and will get you deleted from the linky list.  Please see these examples: (Correct RafflecopterUnacceptable Rafflecopter).
  • You giveaway must be something a reader, author or blogger would enjoy.

Due to the holiday I will be a little lenient on the posting times for this hop.  If you are hosting a giveaway you can put a post up anytime December 31st or by noon on January 1st.  I will delete all blogs who do not have a post up by noon on Tuesday, January 1st.

To sign up to host a giveaway add your blog or website to the linky with your shipping info in parenthesis following your blog name.  If you forget I will assuming you are shipping to the US only and add (US) for you.
