I've won some giveaways, now how do I DO a giveaway?

Since I'm new to the blog world, I really have no clue how to do much of anything! It took me forever just to figure out how to add blogger buttons! I'm not the greatest with computers, but I can play a mean game of computer solitaire!
I guess what Im looking for is any info that will help me get my blog out there, and also figure out how I can start doing giveaways! If I find a product on my own, can I do a giveaway that way? Or does it have to be from a sponser?
If thats the case, how do I get sponsers to help me do these reviews/giveaways?
Bear with me, I'm learning as I go, but I'd appreciate ANY help or info you all can give me!
Thanks alot!

You can do any giveaway you want. I did my first 2 giveaway just sponsored by my self... just recently I got a few sponsors to help with the next 3 giveaways! I love giveaways and great deals, I wish I had a CVS!!!!
Good luck and feel free to ask more questions!

A good place to get traffic is to become a follower of The Secert is in the Sauce (check on my bottom Right side bar). After a while they will list you a featured saucy blog and you'll get a ton of friends that way :). I just started going to new peoples blogs I saw on others and most people will follow if you follow.

For giveaways I was lucky the first one contacted me. I've done ones that I've sponsered myself and other I've contacted companies asking to sponser. I say use some of your CVS finds, that way it's a cool price but you don't break the bank either :).

Good luck let me know if you need any help ;)

Thanks you guys! I'm thinking I may put together a little goodie basket of things and do a giveaway, just to get started!
I also am checking out The secret is in the Sauce, looks great!

i would start with one that you can sponsor yourself. then just contact companies for products you would like to review/feature. most companies are willing to do that since it's publicity for them!! good luck!
