So what's up with the cute poppies on the blog? It's a blog contest from Coach. Both bloggers and readers can be winners, which I thought was pretty cool. It's also another way to get some exposure to the blog.
Here's the scoop:
Readers grow the poppies by Tweeting. You can click a "black" or, in my case, "gray" poppy and it will fill in the Tweet for you. If you Tweet using the #CoachPoppy hashtag, it will grow the poppies on all sites. If you use MY hashtag #kimbers_corner, it will grow the poppies on my site. You can also click the "Like" button to like the project on Facebook.
Readers can win handbags if a handbag appears in the poppies, you should click it.
Readers can Follow the trail of poppies by clicking on that link at the upper left of the page. You can see some new blogs (which can be fun!) as well as get a chance at finding a surprise like the handbags.
Bloggers win if their site appears in the top 10 list of all blogs being Tweeted about. I don't expect to win, but I do think this is a fun way for Coach to connect with bloggers and readers alike. I've always liked their bags, and what a fun way to show it off.
So go ahead and Tweet or Like and Follow the poppies. Grow Poppies Grow! #CoachPoppy #kimbers_corner
