"But Mom! All the Cool Blogs are Doing It!"

I owe you all an apology.  There you sit at your computer (or on your Blackberry or iPhone or whatever other super-cool mobile device I cannot afford to own) reading the posts I painstakingly compose.  You smirk at my off-color quips, glace at yet another photo I have shared of the kiddos, and perhaps even click a link or two if you're bored or waiting to get on a plane or something.  For this, I thank you.  But it sure would be nice to offer you something more. 

I would love to be able to give you something.  I read a lot of blogs every day and, since I am a sucker for free stuff, I love it when my faves do giveaways of one thing or another.  I enter a lot, but win few.  In fact, I have only won once, but it was a circle cutter for scrapbooking which I was super-excited about.  Never mind that I won it after I had already spent my hard-earned, pre-Total Money Makeover money on a circle cutter.  That's not the point.

The point is that I won a cool item just for reading the blog.  I wish I could do that for you.  Now, there are some blogs that seem to go a bit overboard and are reviewing and giving away stuff literally all the time.  I take issue with all swag and no content, but that's not what I'm talking about.  It just would be nice to be able to host a giveaway every now and again to reward you for your loyalty and to celebrate that you put up with my rambling. 

Like now, for instance.  I'm rambling.

Sorry.  I need to figure out how to give away stuff.  That's all.  Thank you.
