It’s officially fall! I am currently at my corner Starbucks, sipping a chai latte, reflecting a little about life and my blog. Which led me to write this to inform you all on some changes and updates coming up. I thought fall meant a slow down- back into routine, easy living, and lounging around in leggings and boots. Uh, no. This fall has been busy for me. What about you?
I have been so grateful for this blogging space. It is my “me-time”. Despite technological difficulties (lapses in internet connection, broken I-pad, and NO computer for a while), I have tried to keep at it. I have met amazing blogging friends this past year. I have been humbled by the sweet and thoughtful comments and emails I have received. I have been challenged to respond to them because they warm my heart while meeting the demands of being a Mom to a tot, being a good wife to an amazing man, and balancing a part time job as a nanny, volunteer to teen moms, and a decent friend to some gals I adore. Being a woman is hard! We get pulled in so many directions. Today I want to encourage you all that you are so important to the people in your lives. Try to let go, and if you cannot do it all, that is ok!
Ok- enough of my cheesy little motivational moment. On to things I am stoked about!
First- I upgraded to using Passionfruit ads. For a limited time, I am giving away my ads at a 40% discount. I know, crazy. It’s ok, I wanna see all your lovely faces! This means an in-post ad will only cost you $9 (originally $15), and a large ad $4.80 (originally $8)! You’ll get a chance to write a solo guest post and optional solo giveaway, participate in the weekly blog hop, and get some lovely twitter and Facebook love. Use promo code “October2013” and see your options Here.
Second- I am beyond grateful and excited to announce that I hit 1000 followers! I could not believe it! Because of this, I want to thank my readers by doing a fall Paypal cash giveaway just in time for Black Friday Shopping. I am inviting you to participate! I’m keeping the buy in low at $15 for 4 links PLUS a free large ad for 30 days and $10 for 3 links. This giveaway will be open to US resident 18 and older. If you are interested in participating fill out this form below! The giveaway will go live October 29th. The more that participate the bigger the cash prize. Giveaways are a great way to meet new readers and get fabulous exposure for your blog relatively inexpensive. Giveaways typically fill up fast- I will accept forms for the next 5 days!
I am so thankful for my readers. Expect some fun stuff this fall- lots of posts on motherhood, some amazing guest bloggers, and some wonderful changes to the current blog hop.
