>Shame on me
I know it seems like I haven’t had much posted lately. I’m so sorry! 40 lashes with a wet noodle colored Bumgenius 4.0 for me.
I’ve been working on things and stuff, I swear. I’m trying to make sure that the Friday giveaway roundup posts have lots of great things listed and I’ve been pursuing more review/giveaway items. I have 2+ giveaways on the way, as well as as 3+ review only items. I’ve been looking into a lot of your suggestions, and there are a few of those that I may be able to do in a few months (manufacturers are backed up, or not accepting new reviewers right now.) My Places to List your Giveaways post took me quite a while to compile, but hopefully it will be a good resource for some new bloggers!
I’m going to start a new weekly feature where I will answer reader submitted questions. They can be about cloth diapers or accessories, babywearing etc., but they don’t need to be within the scope of this blog. I’ll answer questions about blogging, myself, whatever. I just ask that you be nice. No “why is your nose so big?” or “why are you so stupid?” I might just cry.
Send any questions you have to change.diapers.change.the.world at gmail dot com. I haven’t decided for sure what day I will do it or what I will call it, though I suppose the usual “mailbox Mondays” would work! I will always answer any questions you have, but if you would like it to be answered in a post, please indicate (in the email subject or whatever) that your question is for that.
I’ve also been trying to do some nips and tucks on my blog. A very talented family member happens to be a graphic designer, and he created the awesome new social networking icons for me. I did indeed pay him for his valuable services, so those icons are mine. Don’t go a-stealin’ ’em please. He’s working on a logo for me also, so expect a giveaway entry for updating your button sometime in the near future. My Facebook page is next on the to-do list.
I signed up for StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious & Reddit and added a stack of sharing icons in the left column (left column under “share the love.”) If you like one of my posts, please do share it!
I’m also looking into advertising and affiliate programs (I already have a few listed at the bottom of my links page.) I want to keep this blog neat, clean, uncluttered and quick to load, filled with useful information, not junk.
When you get down to it, more traffic and visitors=more/better reviews/giveaways. If I can make a little money, that will allow me to do more of my own reviews/giveaways as well as advertising and making improvements that will in turn lead to more reviews and giveaways for you. If you get a chance, take a look at what I have listed in my affiliate links section. If they are places you order from anyway, I’d love for you to click through my links to place your order. 🙂
Wrap up of the blah blah blah
So please, submit your questions, don’t forget you can submit your cloth/babywearing/green/handmade giveaways to be featured in the giveaway roundup as well.
Remember you can contact me any time with questions or suggestions for features, posts, reviews etc.
Umm, I think that’s it for now. If you read all this, get in line for an organic cookie, hee hee. 😀
I drew a winner for my favorite things giveaway last week. Unfortunately, the winner did not leave her email address in her comment, and it was not visible in her profile. I attempted to contact her by leaving a comment on her blog, but I received no response.
As my rules state, the winner has 48 hours to claim their prize before it is forfeited and a new winner is chosen.
Unfortunately for the original winner, that’s happening right now. Lucky for Mr. & Mrs. Fisher though, because they are the new winners! Congrats!! You have 48 hours to respond to my email!
