A Christmas Gift for YOU

10 Dec


That’s me breathing one of those awkwardly hard sighs of relief… you know, just in case you didn’t know and thought I was yelling out WOOO like a WOO girl.

I was having a little bit of a stress attack over the weekend while waiting for Pocketful of Joules to make the big leap to self-hosted. After a few small issues, like disappearing comments and minor formatting changes…I think we are back in business!

Ok, that DOES deserve a big ol’ WOOO!

When I warned you all that my site was going to be wonky for a little while, I also gave you a little hint that I’d have a super awesome announcement…

Well, Christmas is the season for giving and I LOVE giving gifts. In fact, if I had a bazillion dollars I’d want to give a gift to every single one of you who stop by my blog… with an EXTRA gift for each comment you leave that totally brightens my day! If you mosey on over to the sidebar, you’ll see that I have a brand new section for sponsors.

As a Christmas gift, I’d like to GIVE AWAY all my sponsor spots for the rest of the month and ALL of January… FOR FREE! There will be FOUR winners:

Each winner can either provide me with their button, or I can make you one. Each button will link directly to your website – this can be a blog, Facebook page, etsy page or consultant website!*

So what do you think, do you want some free advertising?

If so, all you have to do is leave me a comment below and a link to the site that you would want to promote. Everyone who comments between now and noon on Monday, December 16th will be entered to win!


*Within reason, I will not be linking to porn or anything nasty that makes me shiver and go “EWWW!”

Like what you see? Share me with your friends!

    I almost couldn’t stop looking at your header long enough to comment. That is one hilarious cow. I’m glad your transition to self hosting went smoothly. I was holding me breath the entire time when I did that with my blog. It’s a little scary. I hope I get to be a button on your bar!
