First of all, there’s this cool new (FREE) service available to help drive traffic to your blog called BlogRush. Most of us want more readers and more traffic, but don’t have the time to go out and find new readers. This is where BlogRush comes in. Basically all you need to do is sign up, insert some code into your blog (see the widget on the lower right side of my blog?) and that’s it. Sound too easy or too good to be true? Well, you can promote it on your blog by writing about it like this which helps too, but it’s not required. Check out the short video on BlogRush to see for yourself how BlogRush can work for you. Gosh, I sound like an infomercial. Too bad I’m not getting paid for this. ;)
Secondly, there’s a sweet contest going on over at Mums the Word where they are giving away a $100 gift card to Natural Pod – an online store with natural and SAFE toys. With all of the recent toy recalls, it’s refreshing to find a store that makes good quality, safe, natural and imaginative toys. There are some amazing toys over there. I clicked through a few of the items yesterday while Ava stood next to me. She was very interested in this doll (I want her too) and this pots and bowls set. Not to discriminate, she also said she wanted one of each of these. Just to be sure Julian isn’t left out, we decided this would be perfect for him. With all of these awesome toys available, you can see why I’m going to need to win the gift certificate for sure. ;)Stumble it!
