Great ideas come to me at the absolute craziest moments.
About a month ago I was blow drying my hair and in deep thought about this here blog.
I may have burned my scalp and fried my hair as I daydreamed about ways to help my readers for the holiday season.
But then it came to me. If I am on a budget, and my readers are on a budget, and according to the news so is most of America, there has to be a way I can help those that I connect with on a daily basis make holiday shopping a little easier.
Afterall, I am your solution and resource finder. Right?
Some of you want discount codes, some of you adore the conveniences of shopping online and beating the mess at the mall, some of you want free shipping, some just want suggestions and recommendations.
And as my hair sizzled from the blow dryer, it hit me. Pain, of course, but the idea. I knew I could help small businesses reach more mom’s and provide my readers with holiday shopping solutions.
‘Cause I’m that kind of girl.
(Is the song running through your mind? Circa 1990 my mother controlled the radio in our wood-paneled station wagon. Patty Loveless, Reba McIntyre, and Garth Brooks were our song choices. Well, my mother’s song choices. I could embrace it or throw a teenage fit as I begged to listen to C&C Music Factory, things that make you go hmmm. I did a little of both- fit throwing and embracing. And still to this day I have flashbacks of 1980’s and 1990’s country music. Fancy don’t let me down. )
I digress, but I am that kinda girl. I want to help.
So I thought, if 12 small businesses would partner with me and offer my readers a shopping solution, this would be awesome.
I spent last month emailing, begging, messaging on Twitter, selling my soul (not really), searching for holiday shopping solutions.
And you know what, 18 companies are on board. Each one of them will be offering you three months of holiday shopping solutions in the form of a discount code, free gift with purchase, or free shipping.
All of these companies are listed in my sidebar under Holiday Shopping Solutions. Peruse their sites and see what suits your fancy. This campaign will run from October – December.
There will be a post to follow that outlines the budget friendly shopping solution each partner is providing.
Oh, and did I mention there will be some awesome product reviews and giveaways from these amazing companies along the way?
This my friend,rocks!
