Guest Posting and a Giveaway!!!

Yesterday, Penny posted Part Two of my guest post over at Foster2Forever...  And now I'm thinking it might be time for a giveaway!!!  Because who doesn't like free things, right?  :-)

So...  When I get to 50 followers, "Giveaway Time" it is!  I've been picking up one or two followers a day, so it shouldn't take too long.  But... if you aren't a follower and want to get a chance to win faster, feel free to become "official."  ;-)  Besides, it makes me feel loved to have members of an adoring public.  (J/K!!!  Well, sort of...  ;-)

"So, what can I win," you might ask?  I think to coincide with my guest post on managing the crazy, busy schedule of foster care appointments and my tip of having a "super-cool, mega-sized day planner," I will be giving away that very thing...  It's time for me to purchase a new one for myself, so I'll just buy two.  And one of them can be yours!


(Not the actual planner...  I haven't found this year's "perfect" planner yet.  Rest-assured, it will be AWESOME.  I am slightly OCD, and tend to have rather high standards for my organizational products.)

How it will work...

If you want to be in the running for the "Super-Cool, Mega-Sized Day Planner," just leave a comment here.  I will choose a winner on July 31st (provided I've reached 50 followers by then...  Hint, hint...  ;-).

Good luck!  :-)

Thank you...thank you...thank you...for blogging about the fostering experience. In the short time we have been connected, I have learned so much from you. I could use all of the journaling and organizing resources available because I have been quick to learn, this is about DOCUMENTATIION DOCUMENTATION DOCUMENTATION!! Also please feel free to start following my blog at www.mommyofdramaqueens.blogspot.com

I've loved reading your posts. I'm a new follower however, always glad to connect to other single people doing the mothering thing!

My blog's a little jealous that your blog has give-aways. A planner is the perfect tool for managing foster care craziness!

I have actually read THREE different blogs this week about organization of appointments and such, and I have chuckled at myself all three times, because my "organization" is writing appointments on the backs of reciepts and envelopes, and then laying them on top of the calendar on my kitchen counter, ha! I am the most unorganized foster mom ever, I bet.

I'm always up for something free!! With two boys and husband in a million activities I need an awesome organizer!

I'm so glad I found your blog! I am currently going through training to become a foster parent, and like you, I will be doing it as a single woman with a full time job. I teach 4th grade which takes a lot of my time even outside of school hours, so anything that will help with keeping me organized would be a blessing! :)

I have only recently found your blog and am loving it! I have four bio kids and two foster kids so I am always running someone to an appointment. I was keeping it all on my phone calendar and guess what happened last week. Yep - it crashed - and I had not synced in a while. Lost lost lost is what I am now!!! I have decided it is te to go old school and have a planner again. I have mo idea how you foster with a full time job. Kudos to you!

My husband and I are celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary on the 27th and have no bio children due to health/infertility issues. Foster/adoption has been on my heart for a long time and we finally decided to take the step of faith and get started in the process a while back. We have been told we could be receiving our first placement within the next few weeks!! I have been so encouraged by your blog and learned some things along the way, as well. I am super anal when it comes to details and organization and would love a great planner as we start this journey... Oh and the 31st just happens to be my birthday as well! ;) Thank you for what you do and keep it up!

You make me smile.

I love these planners. They are perfect for crazy,disorganized people!

Debbie said...

Pick me! I'm going to need lots of help staying organized with visits next year, I hope. :-)

Great idea!
