For this great Giveaway, I have a Kick-Butt plan!!
I've been learning a lot about advertising - it makes so much sense now and I had no idea before...
Personally, I have always been careful NOT to click on any ads, since "I'm not a sucker", you know? That's how I thought of it. "Your ad is not fooling me!" was the only attention I gave to an ad.
This is what I've learned that has changed my opinion:
Before, it just hadn't occurred to me to make my purchase via someone's link. But now, I would support a blogger while going about my readin' & bloggin'!! I think The Book Depository links are like that, same as Barnes & Noble and many others.
But GoogleAds... (this is not a poll for who likes Google and who doesn't!) now those pay-per-click. Meaning... as you meander around visiting your fav blogs and following this way & that way and commenting your appreciation... you could actually send a blogger money by clicking on their ads. I mean... talk about a "thank you"!! Google Ad:
And whatya think book bloggers are going to do with that money? Well... nothing until it adds up to enough for Google to cough up the earnings... but THEN... those book bloggers are going to buy more books, of course!! Yea!! And maybe offer more giveaways so we can all win more books!!! (Well, that's what I'd do!) Clicking on ads is one way of Kickin' Butt that is nearly effortless!

We don't get paid by publishers or authors to read their books!! You know? If they paid me, I'd have to do what they told me to. Ha.
Shall we get on with the Good Stuff?
Any book with a Kick-Butt character is available for winning. I have some favorites for examples... and wouldn't you like to get Bitterblue when it comes out?!?! :-D Uh-huh... me, too!!
Find my Giveaway rules on my About Me page HERE. They apply, as always!! (Whether you review 'em or not.)
(Click on the covers to find these on Goodreads. These are NOT ads!! :-)
[I tell ya... Hunger Games had BETTER be awesome!!! I saw a commentary last night and the producer read the books. :-) That's a good sign! Are you gonna make it to the theater this weekend?!]
Giveaways are my favorite opportunity to draw out Colorimetry readers and get all y'all's opinions on things. Today I'm curious about what you think of advertisements... if you have avoided them in the past, if my post has helped explain how they benefit bloggers (or if it's confusing?), if you still hate 'em, or what?! Please feel free to vent... that's an essential part of kickin' butt any day. And tell me...
