This is a first! I have a giveaway! 😉 So exciting! 😉 It seems like a blog has “made it” when there are giveaways. And… consequently I’ve tried to avoid that at all costs. I didn’t want to fall into the mainstream and just float along with everyone else, just because that’s the way its done and that’s how you get and keep readers.
I didn’t want to do that. I wanted to find a niche and find some faithful followers or just be able to be a resource for recipes, medical help and green ideas! I think that has happened, although I wish I had more readers…. but I know God has a good and perfect plan for this blog, whatever that may be.
If God’s plan is that the information serves others and that it never gets really big or widely read or popular, that’s ok. I just hope that I’m able to help and bless others through what I’ve written and what I post.
Now that I say I’m going to do a giveaway… I’m eating my own words! This, though, actually fell into my lap. I was on Tropical Traditions website checking out the monthly deals when I saw that I could become an affiliate and I could also try some coconut oil for my blog! I wasn’t required to write a review and I didn’t have to sign anything stating I would only give a good review.
I thought I’d give it a try. I feel like Tropical Traditions is THE coconut oil to buy. I love their company and the way they employ local labor with fair trade and sustainable practices! I’m also fascinated with all things vintage, antique or just plain old fashioned. And the way they press their gold label coconut oil is really awesome! I had no idea how it was done and it’s so neat to see the process hasn’t died with newer and faster ways to do things!
Check out this video to see what I’m talking about.
Just a few more quick notes about Tropical Traditions. I’ve been on their website many times and there are SO many amazing facts and a plethora of fantastic information. I know most of my readers are familiar with coconut oil, but just in case here is a link that has very detailed and helpful information about it. I’ve also found this page interesting with a great list of uses for coconut oil. And last but not least… who doesn’t want new recipes to try!
So with that being said I have a jar that I get to give away! Here are the rules:
