The recent recalls of what seems like every infant toy on the market has made some of us quite skittish about what to get the baby for Christmas. You don't want to buy online because you want to flip the toy over and see where it was made. I'm looking for that great "Made in the USA" tag. Maybe this was all just a ruse to force me into the stores.
Thankfully, Susan (one of the twin sisters who run the greatest website for moms) has come up with an Incredible Prize Pack to be given away this Sunday. Not only would this fill all of my needs for this Christmas, but I would be able to share the wealth!
Besides being great for me, contests are also a great way for me to promote my blog. It gives me a link to a great site (take five minutes to swing by 5minutesformom.com) and it introduces my blog to many people who might not have a chance to see it. The last contest I entered brought 60 new visitors in one month, and it still driving traffic my direction.
Get into the game. You may not win the prize from the contest, but traffic can be a far greater prize in the end.
