Luck of the Irish Giveaway Hop Sign Ups Open

Luck of the Irish Giveaway Hop will be hosted by Yankee Texan Mom and Deals From MS Do  from March 1 12:01 AM to March 17 11:59 PM and are accepting signups now.
The event will begin at 12:01 AM March 1 and end at 11:59 PM on March 17  (all links not up by 10AM CST  March 1 will be marked with NO GIVEAWAY and then deleted 12 PM CST).  Exceptions will only be allowed in the event of natural disasters or carnage.  Excuses that do not fall into that category will be evaluated at the sole discretion of the hosts.
What You Must Do As A Participant (Mandatory):
  • Host a giveaway posted on your blog totaling at least $25 for one winner. You are allowed to have more than one winner as long as each prize package is valued at $25.  If you have multiple prizes, there must be one main post for this giveaway.  The giveaway must run for the duration of this event.
  • Include a Luck Of the Irish Giveaway Hop Button in your giveaway post to identify the giveaway as being a part of this hop.
  • Sign up on the linky with a correct email address (that you actually use) and add on your safe-senders list.
  • Include the linky that we will provide later within your giveaway post
  • Include a few sentences about the event, hosts and any possible Grand Prize info and sponsor link that will be provided to you.
  • Check your ego at the door and be prepared to have fun.  It is a requirement that you play nice with others.  (We’re not dictators though, we will let you run with scissors as long as you don’t send us the doctor’s bill.)
What You Could Do As A Participant (Optional):
  • Grab the button and post it somewhere on your blog.
  • Ask questions if you have them.
  • Keep the giveaway entries simple.  Ideally, no more than 1 mandatory and no more than 5 optional.
  • Include a daily Tweet entry using the event hashtag.
  • Publicize your giveaway.  (We will publicize the event, but it is your responsibility to publicize your own individual giveaway.)
What Our Hosts Will Do:
  • Answer any questions that you may have – just ASK.
  • Publicize the Luck of the Irish Hop on multiple sites.
  • Communicate.
  • Make you laugh.
  • Tweet out each one of your giveaways at least once during the event.
