$125 GIVEAWAY

Via
WELCOME!
 

I'm celebrating 600+ following friends!  Sometimes blogging can be a love/hate relationship.  Can't live with it and cant' live without it.  Either time or inspiration lacks momentarily and we all think of quitting, or at least a lot of us do.  But we keep blogging because it's fun. 
I am so very grateful for all the wonderful friends I've met.  Your words of encouragement, creativity and ingenious posts are such a great source of inspiration.

So with gratitude...

It's a $125 shopping spree provided by me and 5 other awesome and kind sponsors!

1.  $25 Ebay gift certificate from Beatrice Banks
2.  $20 gift certificate from Burlap and Blue
3.  $20 gift certificate from Cards by Carla
4.  $20 gift certificate from Raggy Girl Vintage
5.  $20 gift certificate from Cotton Breeze
6.  $20 gift certificate from Bella Rosa Antiques 

These shops have fabulous stuff!  Check them out by clicking on the above highlighted names.

It has become increasingly difficult to keep up with everyone. At one point, I kept all of my followers on the sidebar and would visit daily. Now I randomly choose a few to visit each day along with those who visit me.  I don't like it but, it's a time factor.  I've learned, "The lack of commenting is not the lack of interest."  I'd like to hear your ideas on this or another great blogging tip.

How To Enter

1. Leave a comment letting me know you are a follower of  Beatrice Banks
There are 7 other ways to increase your chances of winning!
Choose as many or as few as you'd like but leave a separate comment for each action. 
( Feel free to come back and add as you please.)

2.  In one sentence, give the best blogging tip you've received or learned.
3.  Copy and paste giveaway button on your sidebar and/or post about giveaway on your blog.

















Be a follower of:
4.  Burlap and Blue
5.  Paper Pastorale

Blondie's Journal said...

This is such a fun giveaway, Tammy!! I agree with you on the blogging...lack of commenting is not lack of interest...I always visit those that visit me and then I do my best to follow my blogroll. Some days I have more time than others!!

You know I am a follower!

XO,
Janie

Anita said...

Hi Tammy, What a nice giveaway you and your friends are sponsoring. As a follower of yours, put me in! :)

I sympathize with you regarding being able to visit blogs. I've read a few other posts lately on this subject, and we all seem to attempt a happy balance when it comes to reading and commenting.

I'm happy to have my bloggy friends and to visit when I can. We should all take the pressure off of ourselves, except for those days when we're in the mood for a blogging frenzy. :)

Sassy Marsha said...

Oh, my, what wonderful giveaways!! I am a follower, albeit I don't comment much, bad Marsha!!

Pamela said...

Hi Tammy!
Congrats on your giveaway! Lovely!

Blogging is a love/hate relationship. I find it difficult to constantly comment on all the blogs i follow plus i constantly find new ones! For the most part i visit everyone in the morning and then go back and comment. It is so time consuming and at times annoys the heck out of my husband!

I still haven't figured out how all of you email me with my comment inclosed? I asked a friend blogger who lives in the next town hoping she could show me in person but she is stumped about it too! Sometimes i feel like the blogging idiot!!

The greatest blogging tip? Comment comment comment lol !

I'm a happy follower!

Pamela xo

Sassy Marsha said...

Blogging advice

Your blog is an extension of you, be yourself, don't try to emulate (is that the right word?!? LOL) other blogs!

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

Hi Tammy!

I just think you're the best! You are truly a genuine and sweet blogger. I feel bad that I can't keep up with everyone. I try to follow my blog roll and do the same as you. It's not a lack of interest or popularity contest. I truly love all the blogs I follow. There is the time factor and the fact that my family needs me now and then :)

You know I'm a follower :) Thanks for the chance to win! Great giveaway!
Hugs,
Michelle

p.s.. Best blogging tip...hmmmm I don't really have one but I think it's important to be yourself!

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

I added your giveaway to my sidebar!

Thanks!!!

Libby said...

I'm a happy follower! Awesome giveaway!! Congrats on 600+ followers.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Hi Tammy...I am of course a follower. :o) I need to think about the best blogging tip so I'll come back to do that. I'll post your button on my side bar when I get home. I shouldn't be blogging at work but I am eating my lunch so I hopped on. I'll let you know when I get your button posted. This was a great post as usual. Very thought-provoking. ~Ann

Amy said...

I'm a follower!

Simone @ Doberman's by the Sea said...

Hey girl, congrats to 600+. The more followers you get the harder it is too keep up with everyone. Time is of the essence here! I get frustrated a lot, but then I get a nice email or read a great post and I'm glad I'm still here. This morning I got up early to do some blog visits-sometimes it is the only way to keep up. Cheers

Vicki @ Curly Willow said...

You know me... I am a happy follower!

Vicki @ Curly Willow said...

I included your giveaway button on curlywillowdiy.blogspot.com!

Vicki @ Curly Willow said...

I am now following your friends, except Bella Rose Antiques didn't have a follow button.

ramsam said...

I am a follower!

My best blogging tip is to try to comment at least once a month on everyone I follow- I will do more if I can but I can't keep up some days and I like people to know I am still out there watching them!

The Inspired Nest said...

I am a follower! Congrats on 600+!
Lacy

The Inspired Nest said...

The best blogging tip I have gotten is to always respond to comments. It is very important to respond. I try to thank everyone but sometimes it is hard to keep track!
Lacy

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Hello Tammy,
WOW...now this is one awesome giveaway and as you know...I'm a happy follower:)

Blessings,
Linda

Trisha said...

Wow! So generous of all you wonderful ladies! Fingers crossed!

~Trisha

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

My tip or maybe I should say advice is about linky parties. When someone attends (links up) to a party...always speak (comment) to the hostess...I don't dare go to a party (in person) and not speak to the host or hostess...just sayin'!!! I just think that some people are so busy, that they just really don't think about (I sure hope...that's the case).

Blessings,
Linda

Robyn said...

I'm a follower! A very HAPPY follower!

LESAPEA MUSINGS said...

The blog tip from me is to always back up my blog files from time to time so that I do not lose everything, should my computer ever has a virus.

Lisa @ Lesapea xx

Julie Harward said...

I just love you and the way you blog. My tip is..."Be yourself, everyone else is taken!" ;D

Leann said...

Hi Tammy

Woo Hoo love this great giveaway my friend! So glad that I've found you - you are inspiring. I've been a follower for quite some time and LOVE it!

Leann

Leann said...

Best tip I've ever rec'd is blog for yourself. You don't have to return every comment if you don't have time. Write the content for yourself you don't have to please every one. Read what you like and comment only if you want to.

Leann said...

Just added your button to my sidebar!

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

I am a new follower of yours. I'm from South Carolina and I've only been blogging just a few months but I'm addicted. I don't really have any tips other than to keep the blog backed up. The other day, all of my comments that I had worked so hard to get just disappeared! Lordy, what a panic I was in until my sweet step-son fixed it for me. Thanks for this giveaway.I'll visit all the sponsors.

podso said...

I also am a follower and your blog is so colorful and fun to visit its no wonder you have so many followers. I understand what you are saying about blogging. I love to visit my favorites--I feel like I'm checking in with my friends, but sometimes it takes more time than I have. But when I do I can easily let the time pass as I lose myself in the blogs. And there are more and more good ones to visit. So, we just do what we can. I tend to comment if it can be done quickly especially if something touches me, but we have to know that no commenting does not mean no reading--or interest! Have fun with your give away! (I am also posting less often and I think others are too.)

Donnie said...

I'm a follower.

Donnie said...

Best tip was to not let it overtake real life. That came from hubby...lol...

Heather said...

Hi Tammy! I think that the best blog tip is just to be yourself! If you don't feel like blogging, take a break. Blogging should always be fun!

Trisha said...

I learned how to add buttons finally!! So I have added yours!!

~Trisha

Kerrie said...

Okay!! I was already following but just now posted your Give-a-Way button on my TWO HAPPY Blog http://beaver-kerrie.blogspot.com Thanks!!

Kerrie said...

Forgot to say, Blogging Tip: Don't try to copy or keep up with the glitzzy blogs with all the sparkle and animation. Just blog about what you love and you will find others with like interests will find and appreciate your blog!

Melissa Miller said...

Tammy what an incredibly generous giveaway! Thank you very much for the opportunity to win it. You are so very kind to us.

Warmly, ~Melissa :)

Cozy Little House said...

That is great, Tammy! That you've reached that point AND the giveaway. Time is a real restraint. Especially if you still have children at home. You just do what you can and try not to worry about the rest, is my tip!
Brenda

Donna said...

I follow BB and love all your wonderful inspiration...that's my favorite blogging tip...inspiration!!

Yvonne@StyleBurb said...

Hi Tammy, I just wanted to pop over and visit your blog....it is gorgeous...I love all the colorful photos! I have just started blogging, so I don't really have any tips. I try to keep "to thine own self be true" in mind, though. I am happy to follow your blog. The giveaway is amazing...no need to enter my name in the draw...shipping to Canada is a little costly with customs and taxes- thanks anyway!

From the Kitchen said...

I can't always visit with a friend but love to when possible. Same with blogs. Many times I check in without commenting. So, drop in when you can and I'll do the same.

Best,
Bonnie

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I am so happy you stopped by so that I could find my way back to your blog! Yes, Tyler during the Azalea Trails rates a bucket list placement. LOL! Lufkin is only a hop and a skip away. We'd love for you to come join us! But, I hear Georgia is pretty special, too. Blessings ~ tanna

saltbox treasures said...

Hi Tammy, What a wonderful and unbelievable giveaway! Thanks so much! I look forward to visiting the other shops as well.

Love your give away!

Ann-Marie

rachelsjunkinthetrunk said...

Ok,I added all the shops to my side bar. I didn't see one for Bella Rosa Antiques so I made one by copying and pasting her logo. Well, I stopped in for a visit and bought an art piece.I stayed so long it's way past my bed time. I will take a look at the other shops and see what others treats I can find tomorrow! Thank you for introducing me!

Custom Comforts said...

I am a follower and know what you mean about not being able to keep up and I only have 200 followers. It is a time-consuming hobby, but one I do love. Sometimes we just have to step back for a little while and realize we can't be everything to everyone all the time.
Cindy

Patsy said...

I'm a follower ( even before giveaway) Enjoy your blog very much.

Patsy said...

Best blog tip - don't use word verification for comments.

Carol Schiff Studio said...

Love your blog and have been a follower. Great give-away, fingers crossed!

Carol Schiff Studio said...

Mt best hint about bloggging. Ask your readers for input (questions).

laxsupermom said...

Wow! What an incredible giveaway! The best blogging tip I've read is to just remember why you started blogging. I think it's so easy to get wrapped up in your numbers, that you start chasing something you didn't even want in the first place. Every now and again, I have to remind myself that I went in saying, "I don't care if nobody ever reads me, this is just a place for me to share what I'm up to."

laxsupermom said...

Oh, and I'm a follower, too. Have been for awhile, because I love all the inspiring pics you post.

Cat & Cricket said...

Super fabulous generous giveaway!
You know I Follow you already.. and Bella Rosa..
Will follow the rest!

I'm your 624th Follower and I got here thru Pink Saturday#1, as I'm joining PS for the first time.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Hey Tammy...I have your give away on my side bar. In one sentence I would say that my best tip is to not give up when your blog becomes overwhelming. Take a break...and then try again. (I guess that's 2 sentences. Sorry!)

Jo said...

Thank you for you for stopping by and your kinds words. It's so nice to meet you. Your blog is simply lovely and I too will be following along.

Have a wonderful weekend ~
Jo

That's two.
Hugs, Cindy

Cindy said...

Hello my friend,
This is a great giveaway! I really hope I win.
I think you are wise to pick and choose where you comment each day instead of killing yourself over your blog. You have some very loyal followers, do your best and leave the rest.
The best blogging tip I ever received was "make your photos as large as possible."
That's three!
Love and hugs, Cindy

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What an amazing giveaway! I'm a happy follower and enjoy your blog! And I think at this point in our blogging we all know that we can't write on every post...but we visit our friends when we can! And that makes it fun...no pressure! Hugs! ♥

Sarah said...

Beautiful images, and wise words. I think each of us feels much the same way. Blogging is an incredible experience, but it often takes up so much of our real time that we can't always keep up.
I am indeed a follower, from A Doctor in the House. ;-)

I'm your newest follower :)

Hi Tammy! Congrats to you friend..that is a wonderful milestone in blogging. I follow your blog and would love a chance to win. I so understand the visiting and time constraints. I truly hope all my friends understand when I can't visit as often as I used to...I want to though and it kills me sometimes. I can't even keep up with general emails. Best blogging tip..stay true to who you are..never mind what everyone else is doing. That is my own advise and I do follow it.

Ann-Marie ~ Brambly said...

Tammy,
I went to visit the blogs and became a follower of all of them. They are all wonderful and offer such beautiful items.

Best blogging tip: Remember, it's for FUN. Don't let your number of followers or your bad lighting on picture day make you forget that!

classic • casual • home said...

I love following you! I am having my first giveaway...come see. Can;t wait to explore your giveaway sponsors.

Dayle said...

Tammy, I do good to blog once a week, and I'm retired. :) I blog for fun and personal enjoyment, which is why I don't let it consume me. I vist my favorites whenever I can and, like old friends, we pick up where we left off. If blogging ever becomes a burden, I will wave goodbye. The way I see it, blogging is not one of those "important" things in life. Fun, but not important, in the grand scheme of things.

MeMeSue said...

I am a follower!! Thank you very much! :o)

MeMeSue said...

I am a new blogger so I guess my tip is take all the help you can and run with it! Don't be afraid or upset by a little constructive criticism.....there are so many bloggers out there that truely want to see you succeed!

MeMeSue said...

What a great group of sponsors!! I went window shopping in all their shops and am following every blessed one of them...thank you!

LDH said...

I am a follower :)

Pamela said...

Hi Tammy! Of course I am a follower and the best advice I have been given is to just go with it and have fun >Do not worry abt how many followers you have or what your ranking is. Just do it cause it is fun.
Reason I am stopping by is to make sure y'all faired the storms well?? I talked to mom today and she told me how they are thinking a tornado came thru in the middle of the night last night. It is not official but that is what everybody is thinking. Lots of damage by her house. Just wanted to check in and make sure nothing came your way!

Lori said...

Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the comment awhile back and for following along, I so appreciate the kind words! I will follow you as well!
Happy Spring!

Lori said...

Oh and one more thing....all these photos are STUNNING, WOW!!! I love all the beautiful photos on your blog and your header is SO pretty! :)

A Vintage Vine said...

Great giveaway! I am a very happy follower!

A Vintage Vine said...

Just posted you giveaway on my sidebar!

Sares said...

Congratulations B! I know it's so hard to return comments when you get so many. It seems like it would be something quick to do but it can take forever!

I would love to enter your giveaway, it's amazing. I am a follower!

Sares said...

I think the best blogging tip is one I learned pretty much on my own although I have read other bloggers feel the same way. It's pretty much the whole "blogging without guilt" idea. Our lives can get pretty busy so just do what you can, when you can and try not to stress about what doesn't get done. I think our "real" lives are more important than returning a comment at the speed of light!

Sares said...

I posted your giveaway on my sidebar. now I am off to visit the blogs on your list. Please come by when you get a chance and join my giveaway. Follow the All That Jazz Vintage link to sign up!

stefanie said...

first...congrats!!!
it is soooo hard to visit everyone, sometimes I feel bad, but there just isn' t enough time to do it all, makes me feel better when I read, like yours that it is hard for others as well!!!!

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

I guess my blogging tip would be to try not to stress about the numbers. Concentrate on those that come back time and again because they truly like to :)

classic • casual • home said...

I am a follower. Best tip I got was to be myself. I like Anita's tip above too.
You are wonderful and I look forward to you blog. thanks. Going to stroll around the shops above.

Blue Ridge Altered Art said...

I am a new follower and found you thru Coastal Charm. I have had my blog since last July and for me the best advice is to join linky parties and comment on as many post as I can a day. I am already a follower of a couple of those sites and am on my way to visit the ones I have not seen before. ~~Sherry~~

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

Hi Tammy.....I am a follower and I will put the giveaway button on my blog....
I don't know that I have any sage advice on blogging except that personally, I am attracted first to a pretty layout and banner....that is the hook that draws me in. Then, of course, the pictures have to be enticing and the writing inspiring or entertaining.
I try to join in as many blog parties as I can, time wise, to meet new people.

Please enter me in this marvelous giveaway! Jil

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

I'm a happy follower of BB!

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

I have to agree with you. I may not like it but you have to find a balance with commenting. I'd love to visit and comment with everyone but it just isn't possible. I love what you said about a lack of commenting doesn't indicate a lack of intrest. Very true!

Ann said...

What a great giveaway! I enjoy following your blog and seeing your inspirational photos and posts, thank you for taking the time to do so!

Ann said...

I do not blog anymore, maybe one day when my life slows downs a bit, but the one thing that I always kept in the back of my mind was to be sincere with posting and commenting.

Cari-Bella said...

You are one of my creative inspirations as I grow my business. Thank you for the beautiful pictures and great written voice.

Cari-Bella said...

The best blogging tip I received is actually from one of my college students - be yourself as you write. You can't consistantly pretend to be someone else.

I'm a follower! And I too am finding it difficult to keep up. Blogging if fun and rewarding, but it is also a ton of work. My new year's resolution was to find balance. I'm still working on that!

What a wonderful giveaway, Tammy! I am already your happy follower. I appreciate you coming by to visit me today!

My best blogging tip would be to "be sociable" and don't just visit, leave a comment so that the blogger knows you've been there and can discover you in turn.

I am a happy follower of yours! The best advice I have been given is to know that there is more to life then blogging and to give yourself a break when you cannot post or get to all those lovely comments. People understand-

The best advice I can give is what I've learned to do - keep blogging fun, so it doesn't become one more "have-to" in your life. ;)
