What's New At Miss Jackie's Views

I am making some changes to the blog so I thought I would update my followers. If you have followed me for awhile you probably noticed the blog looks a lot different. A blogger friend, Taryn, from the blog Mom Of One And Having Fun redesigned the blog for me and made a button and social media buttons.

I have started a "Fan of the Week" contest. Every Friday I will select the fan/follower who interacts the most and shows an interest in Miss Jackie's Views. The Fan of the Week will receive a prize. If you see a post from me on Facebook please take a second and click "like", the more fans that like and share my posts the more visible they become to others. If you visit the blog for a giveaway  please take a moment and click on another post. Leave a comment or just look it over real quick. Every time you visit more than one post on my blog it greatly improves my Alexa and Google rankings. Alexa and Google are blog ranking systems, some sponsors require you to have a set ranking before they will allow you to do a review and giveaway. So if you want to see more and even greater giveaways from Miss Jackie's Views please take an extra minute and help me out, it is greatly appreciated!

If you enter giveaways on the blog please check your emails including your spam folders so you don't miss out if you are the winner of a giveaway! 

If you don't already subscribe by email please consider doing so, use the box in the right sidebar to subscribe. I only send one email per day maximum, I won't overload your inbox. Because of changes Facebook made my posts might not be visible to you and I wouldn't want you to miss out on any news or great giveaways!

I plan on featuring more content especially beauty and fashion tips and news. Since my oldest son is in college (he just finished his freshman year) I will be sharing posts with tips on everything from selecting a college to finding scholarships. We have been very fortunate that to date John has received ten scholarship totaling $104,000. and I would like to share with others how to cut college costs.

I participate in several consumer programs that send you full size products and ask for your opinions. I will be writing about which programs are my favorites and telling you where to go to sign up for them, who doesn't love to get free products? And I personally love being able to try new things!

Earlier this week I posted the Copper River Bags giveaway, and I have really seen an increase in traffic to my blog! If you haven't already entered don't miss out on this great giveaway for a leather bag of your choice! Go HERE to enter.

I had two exciting things happen this past week. I was selected by Mom Central to review the new Hoover Twin Tank Steam Mop! I am a Mom Central Blogger and this is the first campaign I have been selected for. Mom Central coordinates reviews and giveaways with several large companies including Uni Lever Proctor & Gamble and Pepsi. Being selected for the Hoover E Commerce Review program means I have gotten my foot in the door with Mom Central and hopefully if I do a good job I will be selected for some big review and giveaway opportunities with them!

The other big news was that I have been selected for the Smiley Blogger Circle. The Smiley Blogger Circle is a new program started by Smiley 360, one of the easiest consumer review programs to participate in. I was not going to fill out the application when I received the email inviting me to apply for the Smiley Blogger Circle because my blog is small and so many bloggers are members of Smiley 360, I figured my chances of acceptance were not that great. So I was pleased when I got confirmation that I was accepted! I found out a few days ago that 1500 bloggers applied for this program and less than 300 were accepted. The Smiley Blogger Circle will be coordinating giveaways that I can offer to my readers, these will be new products that are just hitting the stores so I think it's great that I will be able to share brand new products with my readers!
