Needing to feel liked and a mobile giveaway

Needing to feel liked and a mobile giveaway

Screen shot 2013-08-06 at 1.31.57 PM
Hello!

Recently a brand approached me through Facebook asking to partner. They wanted a lot of work for the equivalent of a $20 shirt. I told them I don’t partner for free (mama’s gotta feed the baby!) and they gave me a “lesson” on how blogging works. Telling me when I had more people read my blog they could offer me money. They didn’t see any of my numbers or notice I have about 10X as many followers on Instagram…they just based everything on Facebook.

Now I’m not like a huge blog obviously, but I’ve been doing this for a while and I was a little offended at the “lesson.” Mostly because I’m oversensitive, but also because I work VERY HARD. Ha! Apparently they thought I must not know about these fancy blogging things because my following on Facebook is rather small.

If you’ll recall I just joined Facebook a year or two ago, and I didn’t totally get or understand it or love it. But I realize it’s important and useful for helping people see my work, so, I’m trying to be better about it.

Anyway, what I’m saying is, WILL YOU LIKE ME ON FACEBOOK?!?!

If your answer is yes, I am going to give you a chance to win a custom mobile, for you or for a friend (if you don’t need one!).

I recently added a customization option in my shop, you can read about it here.

All you have to do is report to me that you LIKE ME.

If you already like me leave a comment because your love and support should be rewarded!

I’ll choose a winner on Friday!

Thank you!

    Alison!! I think I love you!! Your posts make me smile all day long. Although I don’t have any littles *yet* I’d still love to win one of these for the not too far future! ;) I liked you on Facebook darling.

  2. Amie 1 year ago

    I truly and sincerely like you and now my like is Facebook official :)

  3. Jess Prestwich 1 year ago

    I guess it is finally official that I “like” you now that it is on facebook (even though I’ve been following you and thinking you are fantastic for years). :)

  4. Elisa 1 year ago

    I just ‘liked’ you on facebook…and definitely like your blog and your style! In fact, in my house I have some antlers hanging on my wall that always remind me of you and your incredible e-book (yes – they’re out year round because I love them so much http://www.charmingdoodle.com/2012/12/diy-antlers.html). That brand missed out!!

  5. Mara Patterson 1 year ago

    Liked your page!! :) I also follow you on Instagram, have been for some time. Silly people thinking you’re not liked! ;)

  6. robin 1 year ago

    I REALLY REALLY like you Alison. Probably more than a normal and healthy amount, considering you don’t know me. Hope that’s not weird for you.

  7. Jules Tate 1 year ago

    I liked you on fb! You are hilarious and amazingly creative.

  33. Bree Churchill 1 year ago

    Don’t you worry, we like you, a lot. And your sunnies.
    I don’t use Facebook a lot either, but it is where I follow bloggers and unlike Instagram, can be linked to their latest blog post straight from my newsfeed.
    I’m definitely an instagirl, but Facey has its place too.
    Much like, Bree. xo

  39. EHayes 1 year ago

    I like you! And how rude of that company to give you a “lesson”… big or small, your price and blogging output/followers is up to you, not them.

  40. Mandi C 1 year ago

    scumballs. already liked you, and for the record, FB was how I saw this post? I know. I’m super lame.

  41. Bradie Fowlah 1 year ago

    Girl, I’ve always Facebook liked you. And liked you. Though I admit I found you intimidating when I first met you because, well, you are YOU and you’re great. I’d Instagram the hell out of a mobile!

  42. Meagan 1 year ago

    I like you,..but now it’s FB official :)

  43. jessica 1 year ago

    Like! (and love your mobiles!)

  44. Katherine Allen 1 year ago

    Girl I already like you on facebook… you are always keeping it real and it is soooo refreshing. Your instagram is always making me laugh my head off when I really need it. Don’t listen to those turds… annoying!

  45. Laura Wooster 1 year ago

    I’ve obvi liked you since the throw back titan days before FB even existed. Raffle entry per year of liking? xo.

  46. Katie 1 year ago

    Ha! I saw this post through Facebook, too. And don’t ever doubt that you’re liked–you would still have all these loving comments even without the mobile giveaway. :)

  47. Mandie 1 year ago

    I already liked you, but now we’re facebook official! :)

  48. Julie A. 1 year ago

    Already liked you!

  49. mandy 1 year ago

  50. Natalya 1 year ago

    I love reading your blog!

  51. Kathy Cox Green 1 year ago

    Hi. I think I already liked you. I’ll try to figure it out. Technology baffles frustrates and discourages me, but I have loved pretty much every word you have ever written. Ya, you can do better for yourself than most so-called partners can do for you. You are always going to triumph, Girl. You’ve got the stuff. Betcha the person who tried to lecture you about your facebook presence doesn’t get invited to do entire segments on local TV, eh? eh?

  52. tara 1 year ago

    Totally like and ‘liked’ you!

  53. naomi 1 year ago

    Alison darling, I love you and I like you. You are smart, wassup, generous, and you and the hubs are a serious power couple. I’m sure going to miss you. You even make Art laugh. You’re amazing.

  54. Jody Bitton 1 year ago

    I seriously cannot get enough of you. You are so real and funny that I keep checking back day after day. Not to mention your youtubes! Love you!

  56. Cass VanBuskirk 1 year ago

    I did it. You are liked.

  57. Chelsea Ward 1 year ago

    Ugh I hate the numbers. I see the use of having more likers but it’s awful when others judge you just based on the amount of followers you have on a site etc. I liked you! And I’m liking you with my blog/site page for good measure! :)

  58. Alexis 1 year ago

    I don’t like – I love you, lady!!

  59. Courtney 1 year ago

    What if I’m a grown woman but I would like a mobile for myself? Super cool decor, baby or not:)

  67. Chedva 1 year ago

    Ouch, that sounds like it hurt… I love how honest you are and I also now like you on Facebook. Oh, and your photo-taking is magnificent.

  68. Chelsie Sisterinlaw 1 year ago

    In the words of Gigi… “Alison…. I like you”.
    Do I have children or the need for a mobile? Absolutely not. Do I want one anyway because they’re so pretty? Obviously. :-)

  69. Hannah F 1 year ago

    Of course I like you! Alison, I love you!!! And have been reading your blog for a while now. Thanks for sharing and keep on inspiring! The nerve of that company!

  70. Hannah F 1 year ago

    One more thing can the mobile be turned into a garland?? Because I don’t have kiddies but I could hang this on my curtains as a hip swag. My facebook name is Hanifah Fields, just in case I win

  71. amanda 1 year ago

  75. Caila 1 year ago

    I like you, girl! In fact, I’m so glad you posted this because I guess I hadn’t liked your page before this. I’m pretty slow on the Facebook thing, too, but I see how important it is. Love your blog, girl, and in my mind you’re an expert. :)

  76. Holly 1 year ago

    It’s official…I like you! :)

  77. Cristina 1 year ago

    Ha, that’s so silly. I guess you’ve got to be everywhere all the time. Exhausting. Anyway, I like you! I’m about to be an aunt for the first time, and just about everyone in the family wants a little nursery in their home now. I’m sure one of them would absolutely love one of your mobiles.

  78. Casey 1 year ago

    Alison,
    I find this post half saddening and half amusing. I hate facebook. And wont have one. Ever. But that doesn’t stop your fans from wanting to see your work. I’ve been without a computer for a month or so, but when I get the chance to catch up on things, your blog is on the top of the list along with PostSecret.

    I wanted to give you a “like” on your blog because I can’t on Facebook. You are going about this situation wisely and honestly it’s a great, cute, useful idea.

    Your baby is adorable. Seriously.
    Much love,
    Casey
