Prizeatron was founded in early 2007 and is the oldest blog dedicated purely to listing giveaways run by bloggers! A joint effort of many many fine ladies who not only used prizeatron as the stepping stone to their own blog's success but also donated their time and effort into making this blog truly a great resource. This is a rare chance to own one of the founding blogger contest blogs and a resource that many bloggers not only used but a name that is recognized.

I hate to part with this domain but its not being used and I hate even more to see it unused. So contact me for more info if your interested!

5 Minutes for Mom - Ultimate Blog Party + A Door Prize!!

We LOVE blog parties for the main reason as one you get to learn some new stuff about your favorite bloggers, and you also get to see some blogs that otherwise you might not have seen previously!

We do most of our blogging over at Seven Dogs and a Baby but this was our first blogger blog started in the fall of last year for the sole purpose of giving some linky love to the contests all those hard working blogging mommas were running each week. Though I admit Seven Dogs and a Baby has become our new bloggy love we never forget about Prizeatron.

Enough about blogs... this will be a two part introduction so we can show off both our blogs and share a little more about ourselves as I know I don't always talk about us as much as I should.

I'm a full time nursing student, always trying to juggle school, my son Connor, and our 7 dogs (6 chihuahuas and a miniature pinscher)! Connor is my first child and I'd be the first to admit that I don't always know what I'm doing but we certainly give it our all. Our official blogging adventure (as a mom) started when I turned to blogs while I was pregnant to help me decide what products & toys I should be buying as honestly up to the point of Connor's arrival I had no clue where to even begin. Ive been frequently the technology blogs since before blogs were called blogs and started documenting my life via a web page back in the early 90s (yes they did have the internet then... but there were no pictures, then very few.. very fuzzy pictures), so in many ways blogs and the internet has been a main source of my creative outlet and news for as long as I can remember. Being a mom blogger has been VERY rewarding and is a valued outlet for my joys, fears, and sometimes frustrations, but at times I admit it can be frustrating as well, this week especially.

I wanna continue this intro in Part 2 over at Seven Dogs and a Baby.. but before you head over there... enter to win our door prize!!

I would take the Footprints book. Have a great day!

No book just visiting. Laughing at your comments and enjoying. Stopping by as I go from party to party. Handing out Rose jelly to use instead of honey or sugar in your teas. Using jelly in teas is fun. Different, but fun.

Hi Angela---I really like your blogs!!

You stopped by my blog, but I'll tell you a little here, too. First off, our oldest son is Logan. We loved he name Connor, too--so hard to choose!! I also have a second son--Lucas. they are 5.5 and 2 years old---I love my boys! My husband and I will be married 8 years in June---we met online when I was 17--I'm 28 now. We live in the DC metro area and I love it!!

Although my boys are young, I'd like the Footprints in Time.
