Not your average, ordinary day

Today is a BIG day. It's a celebration!!

It's the SITS BLOGATHON!!







To me, this is a day to show my love for a group that has brought together bloggers and formed a wonderful community where we can find support and blogging fun.





For you, this is an opportunity to check them out and WIN GREAT PRIZES! The SITS girls will be giving away awesome gifts every hour. All you have to do to win is leave a comment. Because that's what this group is about, leaving comments and supporting our fellow bloggers.

I have found so many wonderful blogs through SITS.

The two founders of SITS, Tiffany and Heather, are on my blogroll now, and I read them daily. Tiffany has The R Family Diaries and Heather has Mindless Junque.
They are inspiring and funny.








If I hadn't joined SITS I might have never met Lula of Lulaville or Cristin of Tiptoeing Through the Tulips or Insane Mama of Help, I have a Teenager! And they are all fellow bloggers I read daily and just adore!! They seriously ROCK!

and, without SITS, I might not have discovered The Monogram Chick.
You see, the SITS girls have giveaways EVERY WEEK.
and support bloggers who have ESTY shops and make their own stuff.

Monogram Chick

I bought a car decal from Monogram chick.
She's got an awesome shop.

My blog was a featured blog of the day at one point, and the comment love I received that day was amazing, incredible and so much fun!

I ended up with new readers and new blogs to discover.

And I received this cute badge to display on my site:






So if you have a spare moment today, head over to The Secret Is In The Sauce, because that's where I'm going to be...and you might win something. No matter what, I guarantee you'll find something or someone you like just by looking.

Picnick, Picnick, that's the photo sharing program I've been trying to remember for the last couple of days. Thanks, Kat !!!

See...perfect example of how SITS works. If I hadn't found you, Rhea, thru SITS, then I'd never have got the answer, thru reading Kat's commnent, that has been eluding my fried brain since Saturday !!!

Isn't SITS great? It was the portal to finding you, and I LOVE Cristin and Lula too!

Andrea said...

Awwww...a day late!?! Can I claim jet lag?? I hope the blog-a-thon was fun....I will train for the next one.

Angie's Spot said...

I'm 2 days late and at least a few dollars short, but this was a great entry! The more I'm reading others entries from that day, the more embarrassed I am about mine. It suffered from brevity I'm afraid.

Kat said...

Aha...I am catching Angie playing catch up. And she's pulling ahead. crud.

I wanna win something on SITS.
