to my blogging friends {thank you}

Bloggertunity a mom's guide to bloggingFirst of all, I want to say an overwhelming thank you to everyone who has bought my ebook - Bloggertunity: A Mom's Guide to Blogging - and helped to spread the word. I am beyond grateful for you - my readers, my friends.

I've truly enjoyed sharing my "top secrets" for starting a blog, increasing traffic, getting noticed, reviewing products, making money, and using blogging as a platform for doing good.

My book is not about how to get rich quick or about how to selfishly climb ladders toward blog stardom. It's about being part of the broader blogging community - giving of yourself, making the world a better place.

Along the way, I also share tips for making money, reviewing products, and finding opportunities through blogging that will benefit your family.

To express my thankfulness for the blogging community, I've been handing out prizes left and right:

IMG_2654I hosted an ebook-related contest awhile back and the winner is Vanessa of Our Adoption Journey.

Vanessa will receive a copy of my ebook, plus the "mystery prize" - which is a $100 gift card to 1-800-FLOWERS.COM.

Perhaps she'll spend it on a Happy Birthday Caramel Apple With Candies ($14.99) to send to a friend. Who wouldn't feel totally special if that arrived on their doorstep?

Or maybe she'll opt for a Junior's NY Original Cheesecake, 8" ($31.99) to celebrate a special occasion with her family.

Or what about a gorgeous Autumn Blooms bouquet ($29.99-$39.99) to liven up her home or to cheer up a downhearted neighbor?

She'll find all of that and more at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM and 1-800-BASKETS.COM.

Thanks so much, blog readers, for making my blog and my book a huge success!

  1. Wow! What an incredible blessing this is for me. I have been thinking and praying about how to adopt our adoption blog, along with start a family blog. Yet, I didn't really know how to do it. This is a wonderful blessing to me. Thank you! :)

  2. Woah! What a special joy this was to read. I won!!! And for those who haven't purchased the book yet, go for it. I've found so much helpful information in it, and I plan to read it several times over the next few months!

  3. Ugh, I have been wanting a copy so, so, so, so I def. have to get it somehow. I knew it would be a huge hit. Great reviews and I cannot wait to read this myself!
