I’m giving away a free laptop! Enter to win!

Yep! I’m giving away a FREE laptop!

Why am I doing this? Because as a veteran blogger, I want to inspire people to reach their goals. I love being able to encourage both prospective and experienced bloggers alike to reach for the stars and make the most out of their blogs.

For year, I’ve had so many readers reach out to me, asking to learn more about how to become a successful blogger. Blogging is a deep passion of mine, and many of you have expressed an interest in starting your very own blogs as a way to earn extra income for your family. I want to help encourage you and support you as you work to meet your goals — even if you haven’t started a blog yet. 

Very soon, I’ll be launching my new blog, — a site completely dedicated to sharing all the ins and outs of blogging that I’ve learned during my past 12 years as a blogger — and I want to share it with you!

But only if blogging is something you’re interested in. 🙂 So, I’m doing this giveaway to help me figure out which of you are interested in blogging or who are already blogging.

I want to make sure to serve you well with the new site and with emails I’ll be sending out with valuable information I’ve learned as a blogger. Because my heart’s desire is to help as many bloggers take their blog to the next level and make a part-time or full-time income from blogging — all the while having healthy boundaries for work/home/family and loving their life!

But Crystal, I’m not a blogger!

That’s okay! You are still welcome to enter the giveaway. Giving us your input will help me better meet your needs as one of my valued subscribers. If blogging isn’t your thing, I want to know!

Nobody wants to get emails that they don’t want, and I certainly don’t want to send you emails you don’t want! Hearing from you helps me keep your inbox clean and your heart encouraged with the content you really want.

How do I enter?

That’s the easy part! All you need to do is fill out the form below, checking the option that best describes your interest or involvement in blogging. That’s it!!

What kind of laptop will I win?

    Hi Crystal! I stumbled across your site recently and am enjoying all the ideas you have on here – there is so much good stuff! I am new to blogging and am looking forward to seeing what your new site will hold…I need all the tips I can get!


  • Trixie says:

    Thanks for the great give away! I used to blog back in the “olden days” of 2006. I earned a modest house payment or a really nice car payment at the time. But have been out of it for several years; it seems like so much has changed in the blogosphere except the main thing, the desire to connect and experience community. Looking forward to your new site!

  • Carrie says:

    I tried to enter to win the laptop, but when I clicked “submit” the next screen said Error 670.
    Is there a way to know if my entry was received?

    • Carrie says:

      Actually it is Error 640.
      But I’d still love to know if I’m considered for the drawing. 🙂

      • Katie Chase says:

        Hi, Carrie!

        I’m SO sorry you’re having trouble with the form! I recommend trying the following things to see if that clears up the error:

        1) Temporarily switch browsers. Sometimes the error is a glitch in your browser that can easily be bypassed by submitting the form on a different browser.

        2) Clear the cache on your browser. This can be easily done by going to the settings area of your browser. Once you’ve cleared your cache, try submitting the form again.

        If you still have trouble with the form, please email me at 🙂

  • Diane says:

    Error code for me too.

  • Linda says:

    Go to to enter, not the email form. I got same error until I went to website.

  • Tamboliya says:

    Do either of these (especially the Mac) have an optical drive (CD/DVD drive)? I really hope so b/c I really need that! 🙂

  • Tamboliya says:

    Thanks for giving away a laptop computer! I am so excited! 🙂 I hope I win! This might be an answer to my and my friends’ prayers! 🙂

  • Megan says:

    I’ve been searching for a great idea for a business and literally made a decision that I am passionate about today! I find it completely crazy that the day I made my decision to focus completely on my blog and follow my passion, I find out that you are going to mentor people like me! That is so exciting!!! I’m currently working off of a really slow and old computer that can be very frustrating. Reguardless if I win or not, I will be following you on your next journey and I couldn’t be more excited!

  • lizajane says:

    What a cool giveaway!

  • Debbie says:

    Thank you for a chance to win. I am excited to learn more about blogging from your new site. I do blog, but lately it seems I don’t know what to do with my blog any more.

  • Sophie says:

    I am SO excited about your new blog. Hahaha I need it so badly! And it’s great because I really trust your opinion.

  • AJ says:

    Hello! I tried entering and got an error message but then it said it went through. I entered again at your website and it went right away. Just wanted to make sure that it didn’t register me twice! Thanks so much!

  • Tamboliya says:

    How many times are we allowed to enter? One time total or once a day? Or…?

  • Tami says:

    I’ve been following you for years. I’ve felt like blogging may be in my future for several years now but this year I’m feeling a specific calling. I’m waiting on the Lord to tell me more. A better computer is something I told him I would need since my current one will just shut down for no reason in the middle of doing stuff. I signed up for your emails for the new site last week and I’m looking forward to its launch.

  • Deborah says:

    I truly look forward to your new site. I am somewhat of a newbie blogger. I have had a blog for a little while, but honestly don’t know how to take it to the next level, that of earning money from it. I am excited to see the information you’re going to share. Thanks for doing this. I have really enjoyed following you on IG these past couple of years.

  • Michelle says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win an awesome computer! I love following you blog and getting all of your tips and ideas. I have recently been unemployed and now trying to figure out what to do inbetwen jobs. I have been contiplated about doing a blog in the past but never found the time to really look inti it, but now I have the time but not sure how to go about starting one. Following this blog and signing up for your new site will definetly help start me in my new direction, and winning a new laptop would definelty make it worth my while !
    Thanks again!

  • Wow i love this. I am a blogger but my laptop was stolen i nolonger have a way of blogging . Thanks for this great offer1, it will make me to continue blogging .

  • erin says:

    That is so great of you to do! I’d love to win as my sweet 2 year old poured water all over my old laptop keyboard and fried it and I’ve been without a way to really write online for a year now as I just haven’t been able to get a new one. I have a blog I’ve had for a while now but haven’t had the ability to pour into it as much since that happened. 🙁
    Thanks so much for the give away and helping someone in pursue their passion!

  • Karen L. says:

    Thank you so much for the chance to win a laptop. Wow! I’m hoping to help increase our income by working from home and a new laptop would be such a blessing. ? Blessings back to you!

  • Kari says:

    I accidentally clicked the wrong answer in the email so I quickly went back and clicked the answer I meant to select. I didn’t realize it would automatically enter me… Wanted to make sure it doesn’t enter me twice.

  • Kari says:

    I accidentally clicked the wrong answer for myself and so I quickly went back to the email and clicked the correct answer for myself. I didn’t realize it automatically registered for the giveaway. I wanted to make sure I’m only entered once.

  • leanna says:

    You have been a great encouragement for real mom life! Thank you for this chance to win a laptop!

  • Andrea says:

    What a great giveaway! Thought I’d add some detail since there wasn’t a survey response that fit me that well. I don’t have a blog yet but I’m SO close. I’ve been writing and researching like a mad person and chose a topic I’m excited about in just the last few weeks. My goal is to have something up by summertime. I really love and appreciate this site so I’m excited about your new one because I think it will give me as much great info/help as this one does. I hope you write more about learning html (as you recommend on this site). I think it’s a smart idea and not one I’d come across yet but quite daunting. I’d love a recommendation for where/how to pick that up and the minimum level to acquire. The laptop would be the cherry on top both as inspiration but also because I’m in the market for a newer, lighter one, actually. Thanks, Crystal!

  • Jenn says:

    This is such an awesome giveaway. It would literally be an answer to prayer! I just started blogging but our laptop is so old that it’s faster to write posts on my phone. I’m saving up for a laptop, but with one (small) income, it’s going to be a while.
    So excited to check out your new website! I love this one, so I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  • May says:

    Would love to win a Mac, badly need an upgrade. Was wondering though, is this open to international followers?

  • Amanda says:

    Did someone win this?

  • Jasmine says:

    I think it’s great that you’re doing this. I’m a college student and my laptop recently gave out on me and it would be a blessing if I could win. However, I wish everyone the best of luck!
