    It’s time for the Bloggy Carnival!

    July 28, 2008

    Bloggy Giveaways!Hopefully you have all heard of the Bloggy Giveaways. If not, this is your chance–go on over and check out what they have going on. Usually, a particular company/individual is spotlighted on a daily basis, with various random commenters able to win a prize. Additionally, once a quarter, there is the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival where all kinds of blogs enter with various prizes and neato things you can win.

    Why am I telling you all this? Well, it’s simple really–I’m giving away prizes too! I’m giving away two (2) blog customizations (this includes customization of your existing blog design with new banner, up to 5 sidebar title customizations, code clean up, color scheming, and favicon) which are valued at $90/each. Don’t have a blog? If that’s the case, I’ll set up your basic blog configuration at Blogger (free) or if you pay to host your own blog (like with Wordpress or Typepad) set up your blog there, and a customization of your current blog theme as described above-a value of $130.

    What do you have to do to have a shot at winning one of these fabulous prizes?

    All you need to do is to leave a comment here telling me why you need a spruce up at your blog (or if you don’t have a blog, why you need to have a blog :) ).

    You have until 12 Noon EST (Eastern Standard Time) August 1st, with winners to be announced later that afternoon.

    So–get to commenting!

    Holy Crap Batman!

    July 8, 2008

    Uh…so I haven’t been around these parts for a few weeks–in my head I was all “…hmm…..okay it’s been like a week or so since I’ve written anything on the old blog…better get to gettin on that, for all five of my readers, lest they think I’ve gone to the Big Blog in the Sky.” and then I got here…and well, yeah it’s been a few weekS with a big fat old capital plural S.

    So, how’s your summer going? Mine has been going by in a blur, which is either about to get better or worse–I’m not quite sure yet. I’ve been doing enough freelancing on the side to finally justify giving my oh-so-exciting part-time job at the old Non-Profit the heave ho. Seriously, the 18th (just 8 sweet weekdays away) is totally my last day of working for The Man. Then I’m totally working for myself, which is exciting, but a little terrifying. Luckily I have a few weeks to tell if I’m totally going to sink or swim in this whole “No really, I may have a small portfolio, but I’m a fantastic freelance web designer/coder and you should totally let me build a site for you” endeavor. Guess it’s a really good thing that what I make does not in any way represent a significant portion of the old household budget, right?

    In other exciting news, I am also writing reviews over at Mommy Needs A Review. Kristen has some awesome contacts, so there will be some great giveaways. In fact, if you go to Mommy Needs A Review later on this evening, you’ll see what I’m talking about (HINT HINT, I AM GIVING AWAY SOMETHING YOU DEFINITELY WILL WANT TO WIN).

    So tell me, what exciting things are you doing with your summer so far?
