1000 readers giveaway Affiliates

New Contact Form, Affiliate Talk (and other stuff)

>If you ever have a question, you can always email me (maria at, leave me a comment here or on Facebook, or Tweet at me!

Now, I’ve added another way to contact me.  Click the Contact Page Tab, which is at the top of the page, right under the header.  Click the button, fill out the form, submit and your question/comment will be on its way to me!

I added another new page, an Affiliates Page.  I’ve been kind of hesitant with the Affiliate stuff, but I did add some affiliate links for (use coupon code “gettenfree” to get $10 off your first $49 order), Kelly’s Closet (use code SUPERBOWL15 for 15% off your order-expires at midnight EST 2/6/11.  1 code per order, 1 use per customer.), Diaper Junction, Ergo Baby,, The Land of Nod, Pediped Footwear and Kushies Baby.  I’ll have my eye out for another affiliate programs, but only for things I think you guys will be interested in, and that I can stand behind.

I don’t want to sound like I’m “begging;” that’s rather unbecoming, eh?   If you’re making a purchase, I’d appreciate if you shopped through my links.  I still don’t know how I feel about putting affiliate links within a post. I don’t want my readers to think I’m saying a product is great, just to try to get you to make a purchase through an affiliate link.  I also want you to come here for great info, not a sales pitch.

I also added “places to vote for this blog” on the same affiliate page.  I can’t say I 100% understand the stuff, but I added links to vote for us on Top Baby Blogs, vote for us on Top Mommy Blogs, vote for us on picket fence blogs and write a review on  If you have a quick second now and again, I’d appreciate a vote.  I’d love for new people to find the blog!

Almost finished…I posted this on my Facebook page, but if you’re not a “fan” there, you missed it.  We have over 1,000 RSS feed subscribers, and darn close to 1,000 Facebook “likers,” GFC followers and Twitter followers.  When we hit 1,000 on all of them, I’ll be giving away a great prize package.  If we get close but aren’t getting there, I’ll post some teasers of the prize package, but I don’t want to constantly yap about it, begging for new followers & annoying everyone.  🙂

Lastly!  The new “look” of the blog is temporary, while my graphic designer works on some new stuff, and I muster the courage to switch to WordPress.  If anything looks funny, or it just plain hurts your eyes, let me know!
