Ready to start the year off with a bang?
I know, I know, you’re thinking, “Wait, it’s already Jan.10th. What do you mean start the year off? Aren’t you a little slow getting out of the gate here?” but for me the New Year feels like it really only just started yesterday, when the kids headed back to school.
So… here we are, Day #2 in the “regular scheme of things”. I have Big Plans for 2017. Ready to take on the world and kick butt type plans. I’m finally feeling better, and am ready to get back into my blogging groove.
And I figure what better way to kick off things then with a Great Big Cash Giveaway?
I have teamed up with a group of over forty other Canadian bloggers to take part in the Canucks Rock the New Year Giveaway.
The exciting part for you is twofold. First and foremost WE ARE GIVING AWAY FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS in PayPal cash. I mean, who doesn’t want to win a prize like that?
Secondly, this is a pretty fantastic group of bloggers, and as part of entering this giveaway you will need to visit their page on Facebook, or follow them on social media sites such as Instagram and Twitter. While you are visiting with each blogger to earn your entries I highly suggest checking out their blogs. You might just find some new favourite reads for the New Year.
To get started just answer the question, “What would you do with the money if you won?” Good luck! I’ve got my fingers crossed (and toes) crossed, hoping that it will be a Maple Leaf Mommy reader that takes the prize.
