Whilst I am not posting as many parenting posts nowadays compared to how many I used to post, the fact remains I am still a mummy to a super active little toddler with far too much energy who makes far too much mess. I was recently contacted by Costcutters UK who asked if my readers would be interested in the amazing prize below..I said yes, of course!

Have you ever tried NibNibs? Would you like to? Here’s your chance to win some for yourself:
As someone who likes to enter giveaways and likes to hold them sometimes too, I thought it was high time a post was written about how to enter blog giveaways that use Rafflecopter. I do not claim to be the first person to write such a post – I know people such as Di from Superlucky who explain it a damn sight better than I probably will!
For the purpose of this post, I am going to show you a step by step guide to entering via Rafflecopter and I am using Georgina from Makeup Pixi3‘s post as an example.
As you can see, Georgina has clearly stated the prizes available and the rules for entering from the outset. She has stated that all false entries will be removed – this is a problem that besets every blogger, there will always be some people who click, click away on the buttons but don’t actually follow the rules.
You will be given the option to log in via Facebook or email. I use Facebook as it is so much quicker!
After logging in, you will come to a screen with the mandatory entries. These are assigned a number of ‘points’ each which makes one entry per point. You have to complete these two steps to even be entered into the competition but once completed, this will open the other entries up.
One of the mandatory entries is to follow Georgina’s blog via Bloglovin. Simply copy & paste the link into your browser and click follow! Georgina is asking for your code so she can verify your entry – all you need to do is leave a link to your Bloglovin profile. Simple. The other mandatory entry was to follow Janiro via Twitter – simply click the follow button if you aren’t following them already and input your Twitter name.
Now that the mandatory entries are out of the way, the non mandatory entries are unlocked and you can do as little or as many as you like! I try to do as many as possible; only stopping if I don’t have that specific account. The first few are relatively easy: Follow via GFC which is generally in the bloggers sidebar, subscribe on Youtube (follow the link and hit the subscribe button), follow the blogger on Twitter, like a page or two on Facebook – each one will require a simple click and the inputting of your username for said social media platform.
Nearly every blogger requires you to leave a blog comment as an entry. Whilst this may not always be mandatory (such as in this case), it is the majority of the time. If it is a mandatory entry, be sure to leave a comment to be entered and please make sure to actually leave a comment answering what they have asked you! There is nothing more annoying than people leaving a ‘great giveaway‘ comment as an entry when you asked their favourite scent or shade…
Tweeting is another one that confuses some people. All you need to do is click the tweet button which will come up with a ready made tweet. You simply press another tweet button and the tweet will be posted. I know a lot of people struggle to get the URL so here is a how to guide to do so,
Once you have pressed the tweet button in the Rafflecopter and then the next tweet button, this will come up! Simply click on View it on Twitter and you will see this:
All you need to do is copy the url from your browser and paste it into the Rafflecopter – hey presto, you’re all done!
Entering Rafflecopter giveaways is really easy when you know how but I understand that it can be difficult when you first start entering giveaways. If you have any questions, be sure to let me know!
