Hi! I am out of town but wanted to post about a great giveaway from my friend Kristina. (Forgive me for being a bit late with this – I am out of town and haven't been able to get to internet much.)

    Wow, I just stumbled onto your site and learned about a very cool class at the same time. I just started my own blog and I’m not exactly happy with it. I’ve used all “canned” elements, mostly because I didn’t know how to do anything else.

    Hello jennifer… I feel your ‘pain’. I too was out of town…more like out of touch with civilization by Mt. Denali and could not get service to help myself. So I am sure this is way tooooo late, but would love the opportunity to figure out this blog stuff. Seriously need all the assistance I can get and I appreciate the opportunity. THANKS

  26. charlene

    cool–might be time to jump into the blog world!

  27. Donna Przybylowski

    Wow that sounds like a great class, may still try and sign up, we have a lot of turmoil in my house right now, but I so want to set up a blog!! I just don’t know how.

  28. Janice

    I know you will have picked a winner, but I have a question?

    Is there any profit in having a blog? For example all the icons advertising stuff or sites – do they pay you to have their logo on your blog?

    Just wondering…………..

  29. Ooooohhhhh Jennifer…How I NEED this class!!! I’m at a loss as to HOW to make my
    (brand new) Blog sing MEEEEEE! I’m
    feeling very OLD in this NEW world of Blogging…siggghhh……………

  30. Scrapper Lady

    This would be the perfect class for so many reasons! Thank you so, much for the opportunity to win. You gals ROCK!!

  31. I know I’m a bit late, but want to see if there will be another class for those of us who have been blogging for a while, but are “self taught”…meaning there may be easier ways for me to do things and easier ways for me to make my blog “me”, but I don’t need the basic classes.

    Thanks so much for any information you can pass along to me:)

  32. Sally

    I could give you a million reasons why I would like to win this prize but the most important is that I would not have a clue on where to start in setting up a blog.. plus would not be interested if I could not have it look cute..

  33. some people have sponsors. i dont.

  34. This is so perfect! I need this class!!!

    Thanks so much!!!

  35. D Clark

    I would love to start a blog. The reason that I haven’t is that I don’t know where to begin. This would be a great opportunity! Thanks.


  36. Wow — cool stuff. This might be just the thing to kick start my blog back into action. It’s been a bit, well, neglected of late… :)
