Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Our Gingerbread House

I just wanted to post a quick note to say Happy Holiday's to everyone. We are getting ready to head out to do some major grocery shopping and then back home to clean, bake, wrap and all that fun stuff. My mom and dad are coming into town tomorrow night so I'm excited. Our house is pretty much decorated and the Christmas music is playing. We opted not to decorate outside this year except we do have a pretty wreath on the front door.

I had Kev take a picture of the Christmas tree but I totally forgot to put the skirt around so it looks silly. We put together the Gingerbread house you see above and had a blast doing that. We will celebrate our 11th anniversary on New Year's Eve. Looking forward to a fun night out to Beni Hana's Japanese Steakhouse. Fun!

Have a fun and safe holiday!

Simpleology Blogging Course

I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

Blogging is one of the things I would really like to focus on in 2008 so I think any great info I can get my hands on the subject of blogging will be helpful to me. Thanks to the folks at Simpleology for the offer.

Update 12/30/07: When I first posted this, I was not able to get access however I did email their support desk and the issue was taken care of almost immediately although they didn't respond saying it was fixed but I just happened to try to sign in and I was able to gain access so it's all good. Anyway, I have to say I am really impressed with this course. It is very easy to follow and understand. I think it would be great for a blogging beginner like myself.

There is a lot that came with this course: 15 video lessons plus audio options too, printables and bonuses. I spent the morning yesterday going through the videos and have read one of the printables so far because it was an interview with one of my friends and also a popular Internet Marketer, Lynn Terry of Click Newz and Self Starters Weekly Tips.

Overall, I give this course a thumbs up.

Jingle All the Way Design Contest

Lara posted on her blog Designed By Lara a very cool contest!

I would love to win this contest because I adore all of the design work I have seen from Lara. I have a few design ideas of what I would like as far as this blog goes and I have talked to Lara about a possible design for a new domain of mine so I thought it would be perfect to enter this contest.

Let me know if you decide to enter too so we can root for each other.
