I have an idea kicking around in my head... I thought if we crafty bloggers could pool resources for a contest/giveaway, it might increase traffic for all of us by people who maybe don't normally frequent blogs. Here's how it works:
I'll make a list of participating blogs. Each of us will do a post on the same day advertising the giveaway. Each blog will have an item they're giving away, which will be posted on the main page. We'll let it run for a week or two, and for each blog they leave a comment on, the participants will have their name thrown into the hat once (so, the more blogs they visit, the more chances to win). Also for each purchase from one of the bloggers they can have their name in the hat another time.
If you're interested in participating leave a comment here with your blog URL and your email. If there's enough interest I'll start setting it up.
