Welcome BabyLegs Giveaway!

I am so excited to officially launch my blog today! My journey began many weeks ago when I checked out a copy of WordPress For Dummies at the library. Boy did I study it. I am NOT technical and many headaches came my way. I was spending hours at the computer and getting nowhere. My husband just laughed at me and didn't understand why I couldn't just jump in. Well, to make a long story short, here I am at Blogspot and loving the ease of it! And mostly I've been jumping in! Well, with a little help along the way... :)

Please read the About Me so you can get to know me a little. This blog will be about my family because they are fun to write about, how to live more naturally (with my 3rd child I'm breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, & all that good stuff) as a parent but also as a person trying to simplify, live healthier, & taking care of our environment in the eco-friendly way. I'll be focusing on my Favorite Things page where I'll happily promote handmade items, wahm sites, deals, and anything I personally use and love. On my Giveaways Page I hope to give away these items to help promote myself and those mamas! And, if you have a giveaway I'd be happy to list it on there. So spread the word :)

To start things off and have a little fun I'd like to give away a pair of BabyLegs! These leg warmers are something I have recently been introduced to and I have to say I love them! As the name implies you'd think they were just for the little ones but my six year old thinks it's so cool to wear them on his arms. My favorite use for them are at nights when baby just wears a diaper & t-shirt to bed, we add these for a little extra warmth, and when he gets changed in the night we don't have to worry about messing around with pants. Also, he is practicing his crawling and will one day soon be on the move and what a great way to protect those little knees! Here are my guys showing off their 'Legs...


And if you didn't know, this company was started by a wahm. Look how far she has come!
Check out their Facebook page because they are always posting good deals and you can see a sneak preview of their Fall lineup which will be premiering in August. I emailed them to find out what other great announcements I could share with you but I'm low on the totem pole and didn't hear back...sniff sniff...:)

Now what you've all been waiting for...BabyLegs Giveaway...I'm personally giving away a new pair of my own so I don't represent the company in any way. Please enter to win a pair of Supersoft leg warmers in the Americana color. Take note that the regular pairs are 33cm but the Supersoft ones (and they are soooooooooooooo soft) are 40cm, so a little bit longer and don't fit as nice on the tiny ones. O'Bear is wearing the Flame pair above and they fit all the way up his arm.

To enter comment below what you think of my new blog and any tips/advice you have would be greatly appreciated :)

Additional Entries are as follows and please comment for each entry and how I can find you...

- Sign in through Google Friend Connector and become a follower (I love Friends!)
- Follow Me on Twitter (link above)
- Like Me on Facebook (link above)
- Grab My Button and let me know where you posted it so I can see how you spend your days... (3 entries!)
- Help me spread the word with FB status updates & Twitter Tweets @CrunchyBchMama
- If you're a part of Networked Blogs follow me there though you may need to explain to me how to optimize this

Thank you so much for helping me launch my blog!

This giveaway will end on Aug. 6, 2010 at 11:59 ET. Winner will be drawn via random.org. Once a winner is drawn I will contact them and they will have 48 hours to reply before I draw a new winner. Giveaway is open to residents of the U.S. & Canada only who are 18 years of age or older.

Hey There, Found you on the Mom Bloggers Club. Love the idea of Baby Legs since my daughter's poor legs get so bumped and bruised from 'walking' on her knees everywhere!

Welcome to the Blog world! I love the layout of your blog, it's very simplistic which is great. Some blogs like to pack too many things into the sidebars sometimes, I think. My advice is to join up some Blog Hops (usually Friday is the big day to do this) and list your giveaways on Giveaway Linkys and sites like Prizey.net! I have a Green Follow Friday and Green Giveaway Monday on my blog that you should Linky up with! And if you'd like more advice feel free to e-mail me. I started my blog less than a year ago and now have over 600 followers!

Another piece of advice is to get rid of the Captcha when someone posts a comment. They can post fast when it's not there. If you're worried about Spam just check your comments daily.

welcome to the blog world! :D I'm fairly new myself and feel awfully inadequate at times! I have to say, my favorite thing about your blog is the look! I like the tabs at the top for your different pages and the whole thing just looks nice and neat.

Good luck and I wish you the best on your new adventure!

Crafty Mom said...

your blog looks good. just got here so haven't read much, but...i like the energy! :) the only thing i'd suggest is making the background image stationary (the beautiful beach scene) and only have the content of the blog scroll up and down. i could help you with that if you want. :P

keep up the great blogging, and thanks for the giveaway!
