Blogger Opp – Blogging Essentials Giveaway ARV $440 Hosted by Squishable Baby

Blogger Essentials #giveaway ARV $440 @picmonkey @inlinkz @passionfruitads @RebeccFlansburg Starts 4/13
Hosted by : The Squishable Baby

Notes from Us

Hi, Friend, 

    Cool Mom thought we should participate in this. We'll let her explain why. 

~Katrina von Cat the Master of Wisdom and Knowledge

That's right Katrina, I did recommend your participation in this event. Here are the reasons:

  1. It is hosted by wonder-blogger, Squishable Baby
  2. We use PicMonkey (one of the prizes) to create the images for this blog.  PicMonkey is one of only two blogging resources that we have deemed worth the subscription cost. Since most companies won't take payment via cat treats, we need to be picky about where we spend money. PicMonkey is a favorite of ours. 
  3. Inlinkz (one of the prizes) - While we do not use InLinkz often on this blog, we have used it successfully from time to time, and appreciate when other bloggers use it, allowing us to link up. 
  4. Rebecca Flansburg is one amazing blogger and virtual assistant. She is giving away a couple of great blogging ebooks in the prize pack. 
The rest speaks for itself. Take a read and consider joining us in the event.    Tell your friends about it, too:
