    I would love to win this! I co-author a blog with the mother of the family I was a live-in nanny for! We share recipes and our goal is to focus on healthy delicious food from local, organic farms. Our recipes vary in difficulty, but most are easy to make and family friendly–we try to add recipes for baby food and toddler friendly variations when appropriate. We also share information on gardening, hunting, and fishing when that is how we acquire our ingredients! We could desperately use the help! Our blog is rather bland as far as aesthetics go and goodness knows SEO is too complicated for us.

    My blog is clearly a DIY design. A professional re-design by Shay Bocks would be a kick-start for my blog as I anticipate lots of great content as my son goes to kingergarten. Even though I was an English major and I write for a living, I can ALWAYS use a grammar check from pros like greatproofreading.com, and I appreciate that the company is home based and mom-operated!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Given my whole blog is about shortcuts in life, I would be a true shortcut girl if I won a better look for my blog via giveaway! I created my own logo from scratch and have been slowly learning WordPress since first staring my blog on a whim back in April. I have found my blog, as silly as it sounds, to be my outlet for everything that can be crazy about life. To have a professional look to help my blog to grow and gain readership would just be the bees knees.

    Pick me! Pick me!

    I’d love to win this because it would be the kicker for me to get back into blogging like i used to!! I always posts funny pictures of my son and my dog on facebook with cute captions of what i think they are saying/thinking to each other and i have been wanting to focus a blog on that and all the funny real life situations they seem to always get into with each other. will it win awards? probably not, but if the general public ends up finding it half as funny as my family and friends do then i will at least be creating a place where people can come and get a laugh or two from boys and their silly antics :)

    Hi wonderful Jamie all the way from excotic Denmark (small country in northern Europe – homeland of the Vikings which I’m not sure is a good thing!) . I came across your blog by accident after the Time cover – good work btw! Anyways the topic is give away and of course I think you should give it to me – a foreigner who actially will be moving to the U.S. Soon! My husband has been stationed in Indianapolis and we’re all SO excited – some who are not so excited are our parents and family back here! So I really need to make a blog so they can follow our adventures in Indy – being a mom in Denmark ( have two beautiful lil’ girls) and being a mom in the US is very different and I’d like to blog about my thoughts on that…think that might be interesting actually! Love reading a US mommy blog such as your own so I’d be awesome to create something similar albeit very different….and God knows I suck at webdesign (as in I don’t have a clue about how to make a blog!!!) xox Ann Christina, Denmark, soon-to-be Indy mom;-)

I have done that and now I can’t afford to have it designed. I need to have a nice blog, as I am working to get my book published about our adoption journey and every pubilsher I met with said I needed to work on building my platform. If I were to win the blogging package it would be such a blessing! I could work towards my dreams of having my book published and continue to share our adoption story to bring hope and encouragement to others!

    This contest could not be more perfectly timed.

    After 7 years of working for a digital marketing agency I’m ready to go into business for myself.

    I’ve begun putting together a website, but, design is not my strong suit. I’ve been bugging my (artist) husband to help, but he is putting in long hours at work too and he honestly hasn’t had the time.

    Winning this would help me launch my new business in style without causing my already sleep deprived husband to turn into a completely sleepless zombie!

    I have been blogging for about 4 years, and I’m ready to take my blog in a new and personal direction. I’ve had the same blog design for years because I am clueless on how to redesign! Thank you for the opportunity!

    I am a just-starting-out Voice Over Talent who has been formally trained by a studio in NYC. My website needs to match the way my voice sounds (weird, right?!) Given that I am just starting out, I cannot pay to have this fixed.

    The site needs to be warm and friendly but clean and fresh and the information needs to be clear and easily accessible. Also (now this is REALLY weird) it needs to be all in shades of blue because that is the “color” of my voice. I recently saw a logo that did this and it looked really cool!

    This site hosts my demo and is my calling card. I have lots of potential, but if my website does not reflect that and professionalism, nobody will get a change to hear me. It really is a catch 22.

    Thanks so much for offering this give-away.

    I am one of the original mom bloggers (my site will turn 9 this year) – and am design-challenged as well as cash-poor. With my daughter going into her junior year of high school, I am contemplating where to take my writing, as there will be less “mom” content and more “socal” and ME. Also: have been on Typepad platform for all this time, and as much as I keep saying I’m going to move to self-hosted WordPress, I did move a much younger blog over earlier this year and it was a nightmare. So I drag my feet. Any help would be so appreciated.

    I was a writer for 17 years when I lived in manila but since we moved here, I have had very little to contribute articles too. I started a blog earlier this year — inspired by your blog — but it never really took off. I need help! :)

    I would love to start a health blog with my dad. He is still a competitive runner at age 77 and has coached runners for over 40 years. It would be amazing to share his wealth of knowledge with anyone who wants to improve their running or even just get started running.
    Thanks so much!

    My blog seriously needs a makeover but I just haven’t had the budget for it! I believe a new fresh look would take my blog to the next level. Thanks for the chance to win!

    It was only yesterday my husband and I thought we should share our wealth of information to the online community. I was working in the kitchen making laundry detergent, baby wipes, freezing organic veggies from the market and juicing some in a wonderful new concoction. Later I made garlic pepper spray for my garden and helped my daughter (16 months old) paint a birdhouse to put out. “I think you should have a blog” my husband announced over a dinner of 40 clove chicken and ratatouille. He went on to explain that he has seen blogs dedicated to things like going green, gardening, saving money and food but I would have it all in one place. I gotta say, I felt pretty appreciated at that moment but also thought it WAS indeed a great idea! Today the link to this contest was shared with me over a friends Facebook link. Coincidence? Maybe but I’ll be eagerly awaiting a reply…
