Giveaway Requirment

Hi everyone,

It is the Dutchess here. The Princess is going to be announcing a great selection of giveaways, very soon. I am talking today or tomorrow, that soon! You see, The Princess has been working hard behind the scenes trying to find some great books and products that we can offer you all for giveaways. She has decided to call this extravaganza, All I Want For Christmas Countdown and let me tell you you DO NOT want to miss this. There is one thing we wanted to explain, and ask of you, before we start announcing the giveaways.

One requirement to be entered into all giveaways at Park Avenue Princess is that you follow the blog though Google Friend Connect. It is very easy, you don't have to have a blogger account, or even a blog. I am going to tell you exactly how to go about it. Remember it is required to enter any giveaways here at Park Avenue Princess, and The Princess does check when winners are selected.

See on the right sidebar, the widget titled The Royal Court. It looks like this . . .

1. You click Follow and a small pop-up box will appear.

2. It says "sign in with an account already created" you can use a current google account, twitter account, yahoo account or aim account. If you use any besides the google account you just need to sign in and click allow. It will then let you follow Park Avenue Princess that way. Click follow on the next page and done on the last. See the lovely lady on the top right of the pictures up there? She is using here twitter account.

3. If you do not have a google account, twitter account, yahoo account or aim account, you can sign up for a google account here and this will allow you to follow in the way described above. You will also have the ability to do a ton of other things with that account, you should look it up.

As I said, we ask this of you as one requirement to enter the giveaways here at Park Avenue Princess. You might be asking why. Well, in order for companies to offer to do giveaways they like to see a large following in the google friends connect. So if you follow, it will make the numbers go up and we will be able to get more companies willing to work with us for different giveaways. And who doesn't like giveaways?
