Creating a list of other giveaways

Ok, so I've been trying to figure out how to get more people to visit my blog. Then I realized, maybe I'm not the only one having a hard time generating traffic on my blog. I let this thought rumble around in my brain and then when I recently posted a review, a fellow blogger, Wendi, left a comment so I visited her blog. Low and behold, there was a list exactly like I wanted to do on her main page! She has lists of people giving away books. So, I'm going to take my queue from her and set up a list as well. I do have one requirement which is if the book or your site isn't "family" friendly, that you make a note of it. By family friendly, I mean if the book contains sexual content, swearing, etc that I'm able to let any visitors judge ahead of time whether they want to head to the drawing. I don't want people to link from my site to a book they might find offensive, innappropriate, questionable, etc. We all have varying tastes when it comes to reading and my first concern is for those readers who read only Christian fiction. I will still post for your drawing, just with a caution to the reader. :) With that out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty. What do you need to do? Send me the following info:

Your name
The name of your blog/site
The title of the giveaway
Start and finish dates for the drawing
Any cautions for the drawing
Any other info you want me to post

I hope this will be one more way to draw people to sites promoting authors!

Hello:
I came across your site and your interest in spiritual books, and hoped you might be interested in my Christ-based book. I'm a college English professor and ordained deacon who has authored a soon-to-be released book called Teach and Reach for Classroom Miracles! Lessons on Teaching with Love. It's being published through CSS/Faithwalk Publishing and aimed primarily at teachers, youth leaders, and others who have the opportunity to empower others through love. If you are interested, you may visit my site at wendybyard.com.
Thank you for letting me share.
God bless!
