Warning: This could be habit-forming

I found a blog today that I'd like to share with you, with a word of caution.

It's going to be addicting.


This morning, I went on Pioneer Woman's site and it seems like a lot of people are now doing what I started doing ages ago when I left a comment. I leave my blog address. It was a way to get my name out there, and I didn't do it all the time, but when I first began doing it, I apologized for it. You see, I'd written Ree about three separate times asking if I could advertise my blog on her site. I was willing to pay and I had seen other blogs advertised there.

But she never got back to me.

It was ok because I know how terribly busy she is with all those kids, all those cows, all that e-mail and those comments to read, not to mention all those PHOTOS she takes. And so I'd slip my address in there, right under my comment, real sneaky-like. And people started coming to my blog. And I was glad.

I always check out the commenters at Ree's site who do the same thing as I did, and today I found a blog. It's not just any blog, but one that posts a giveaway. Every. Single. Day. What an excellent idea for a blog! It's called A Giveaway A Day.

From cosmetic bags to household cleaning products, and everything in between, every single day a different giveaway is announced. All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment and you'll be notified if you've won.

And on November 30th, I'm being highlighted for the daily giveaway. I'll be giving away an 8x10 or 8x12 print of your choice from my etsy site.

So check it out. Visit Liz and when you're there, tell her I sent you.

Until tomorrow, my friends . . .

Cool, I'll have to check it out. Pretty neat you'll be featured.

Anyone can be featured. You just have to ask and have something to give away. Thanks all!

Hi Kate! I went over and told Liz I like the sound of the Lavendar Silk soap. What a neat site! Thanks for telling us about it. Hope hubby is continuing to do well. :D

I also got many of my loyal readers from Pioneer Woman and I still visit her blog frequently and comment. Too bad you couldn't advertise with her back then Kate - it costs a LOT more now! :). Thanks for the mention of this site - it is a great idea!

I get stuck in my little rut (which I am wont to do) and visit a narrow breadth of favorite blog sites. How nice of you to feature a new blog site, Kate! Yes, many moons ago I came across your beautiful site by looking through PW's comments. I have never been disappointed and yours still ranks as one of my all-time faves. Even Doughboy will say to me, "Have you read Country Girl's blog? She said...blah, blah". He now reads your blog regularly too. Someday we will need to meet in person, Kate.

What a cool idea for a site (although I'm all bashful and weird about winning anything.) And Pioneer Woman, one of the first blogs I ever encountered. Beautiful. It's a real go-to for photo information and inspiration.
