Movin' to Bloglovin' Giveaway

Oh my goodness --- I really need to get on the ball and switch myself over to Bloglovin'!!!  I knew Google Reader was going away soon, but now it's HERE!!!  I am so thankful for the wonderful bloggers out there who are on the ball and reminded me that this is happening.  I first found this giveaway linky over at Lucky to be in First because Molly had blogged about my Math About Me freebie as one of her pins.  So sweet!!!!!  It's always such an honor to find another blogger out there who gives a shout out!  

The original linky started with Collaboration Cuties.  They explained the switch very well, so I am copying their wording below:

You have probably heard by now that Google Reader is going away on July 1st.  Well, Google Reader may be going away, but we don't want YOU to go away, so we hope that you will consider following our blog through bloglovin!  We know that change is we thought we might sweeten it up for you a little bit!  We are doing a giveaway for all of our fabulous followers that take the leap and switch over to bloglovin.  You may have already switched over!  In that case, this will be an easy entry!

If you have not yet switched or are not following my blog through bloglovin, then there are a few easy steps to follow.  You can go to the sidebar (that's the column on the right over there that shows our followers) and you can click the button that says Follow this Blog with Bloglovin'.  You can also go into the Rafflecopter below and click the link in the first entry, and that will take you to my blog on bloglovin.   You can also click on this link:

You will need to set up an account with bloglovin so that you can follow me.  Please be sure to leave your bloglovin username in the Rafflecopter entry.  Then, go to this post on Bloglovin' and "like" it.

Here's one more thing that is pretty cool about Bloglovin'.  You can type in any keyword and find blogs that way.  So I typed in First Grade and WOWZA - there are A LOT of first grade blogs out there.  Which is another reason why I am so thankful for all of my followers out there.  Luckily my blog does come up when searching for First Grade, but it's a little ways down the list.  Here's what it looks like:

Obviously, if you are here you don't need to do a search for first grade to find me, but I just wanted to see how easy it would be for others out there to find me.  I also thought other people might want a quick easy way to find new blogs to follow.
