GIG Spotlight #1: Beauty Tag

Be on the spotlight and show us what you and your blog got!

To support our GIG members, get their blogs out there, and showcase their creativity both in writing and design, we’re launching a new concept to do this, called GIG Spotlight, where you have all the glory of being featured across all GIG’s network (Facebook + Twitter) including on this blog (GIG’s Official platform) for a good one week! This will give your blog the time to shine and will give you the chance to actually gain more followers and friends in the process! Want to know more? Read on…

So, the idea is simple:

Once every two weeks, myself and one of the GIG Crew will launch a topic that you can join in and write about on your blog.

The lowdown:

  • Based on creativity, style in writing, and design, you will be chosen as GIG’s featured blogger for the week by myself and the crew.
  • Please Like our Facebook Page here – and tag @gigbloggers on Twitter when you’ve posted your entry.
  • Also include the hosts of the GIG Spotlight series in your blog post — giving recognition is something GIG would like to encourage everyone to do as it makes a big difference! It’s one of blogging’s golden rules.
  • Your blog and the GIG Spotlight entry will be posted here with your blog’s URL and pic (if you like) for one week!
  • Next, your blog URL and/or entry will be pinned over at GIG’s group wall as well as on our Fan Page so everyone can see you! Hence the spotlight idea!

Grab the code below and insert in your entry post.

GIG Spotlight Topic of the Week: Beauty: What I want in my bag – 2013!

9th Jan 2012 – 13th Jan

*Topic will run from Wednesday until Sunday*

**List your top 5 beauty lust list and present them the way you want them to be!**

♥ The GIG Blogger to be featured will be announced on Monday and will take the glory until Sunday that week.

Remember, you have until Sunday to submit your entry!

Also please make sure to link up to this blog post and copy the banner above on your post so we know that you’ve joined. Don’t forget to follow this blog, obviously! hehe

That’s it! Now go, cook up some ideas, be creative and have fun! We can’t wait to see what you have for us!

    Great idea! I’m not sure how I missed the fact that the GiG has a blog! That’s so cool!

      Thanks hun! And thank you for following back! This blog was recently just launched but I did reserve the name on WP just in case we decided to have our own voice here on WordPress – and here we are. I’m currently managing this myself and just see how things will go, Liss will also help me a little while we slowly introduce this to the rest of the co-founders. Everyone is busy this start of the year. Please join the beauty tag heheh or perhaps we can sort some DIY topics for the next GIG Spotlight in two weeks time 😉

    It’s okay for us to just save the banner on here and post it to our “spotlight” entry post on our blog right?

      Hi hun! I just made a grab code for the spotlight banner, so feel free to take that as it would be easier for you. 🙂
