A new year, a new blog…and a WPPI giveaway!!!

Ta da!!! Do you like the new look? The new domain? In case you’ve been wondering (and by you, I mean all 2 of you who read my blog) where I’ve been all these weeks, this is what I’ve been working on. I moved from my old blog to this new, snazzy one, thanks to the ProPhoto Photography template. Which, by the way, is awesome and extremely easy to use! I love it! (more on that later)

I’m still tweaking and working on the new design and I’ll be adding some of the photos of the weddings I second shot in 2011. I’m also working on my new website, but for now, baby steps, one at a time.

In honor of the new blog and the new year, I felt a giveaway was in order. A pretty amazing giveaway at that. If you follow me on Twitter, a few weeks ago you may have seen that I won full registration to WPPI thanks to the wonderful George Varanakis (the Executive Vice President of WPPI). Well, it turns out I won’t be able to make it to WPPI this year, which I’m incredibly disappointed about, but it’s just not in the cards.

Bummer for me, but good news for you!! I’m giving away my full registration and if you’re the lucky winner, it’s all yours!!

Here’s what you need to do to win:

Step 1 – Like Kristin Cooley Photography on Facebook.

Step 2Follow me on Twitter.

Step 3 – Like WPPI Online on Facebook.

Step 4Tweet the following: “Enter to win free registration to #WPPI thanks to @KristinCooley and @WPPIGeorge!! To enter: http://kristincooley.net/blog”

Step 5 – Come back here and comment, letting me know you’ve completed all 4 steps.

That’s it! Make sure to complete all 5 steps, in order to qualify to win.

BONUS ENTRY – Share/post about the giveaway on your Facebook Business Page for an extra chance to win. Make sure to tag/mention Kristin Cooley Photography and then come back here, leaving an extra comment to let me know you did it.

Good luck! Enter now until 11:59 PST on Thursday January 12th. The winner will be announced on Friday, January 13th!!

Barb Yasuhara - Hi Kristen, I am so sorry you cannot make it this year, and it is so wonderful of you to share this gift with a very lucky winner!

I have completed the steps as well as the BONUS and would love to be entered into your contest as I simply cannot afford WPPI this year. It’s been quite a tough year and I am just recovering from a recent surgery.

Looking forward to a healthier 2012, and a FREE pass to WPPI, God willing!

Happy New Year!!!
