Needing to feel liked and a mobile giveaway

Screen shot 2013-08-06 at 1.31.57 PM

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!

    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

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

  41. Bradie Fowlah

    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!

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

  46. Katie

    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. πŸ™‚

  50. Natalya

    I love reading your blog!

  51. 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. Totally like and ‘liked’ you!

  53. 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. 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!

  55. Kimberly

    I like you…. I really like you!

  56. I did it. You are liked.

  57. 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! πŸ™‚

  58. Alexis

    I don’t like – I love you, lady!!

  59. Courtney

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

  60. I like, totally like you, Alison. Thanks for being fantastic!

  61. Anne


  62. Tori

    I LIKE you!

  68. Chelsie Sisterinlaw

    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. πŸ™‚

  69. Hannah F

    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

    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

    I liked it! I like you! I don’t like mean lessons…what more can I say?

  75. 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. πŸ™‚

  76. Holly

    It’s official…I like you! πŸ™‚

  77. 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

    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,

  79. i truly like you and made it known on facebook! wahoo. love your snazzy new cowboy shirt too!

  80. oh, I like you Alison! I even like you on facebook. πŸ˜‰

  81. Jen Clark

    I liked you even before you were on Facebook πŸ˜‰ Sorry, I’m really bad at showing it, but I follow your posts and grams and I love you! And miss you and your adorable family. Can we please have a play date soon?

  82. Oh, I’ve liked you from DAY 1, girl! You show those people a thing or two!

  83. Juls Flake

  93. Kendra

    I’m shocked I haven’t liked you on FB already well now it’s official. I’m also shocked I don’t have a mobile above my little peanuts crib. I’d love to win a mobile for his nursery it’s got a south western flair would look lovely!
