Home For the Holidays Event & Extra Entries


I am excited to share with you that The Cloth Diaper Report is having a Home for the Holidays event starting this weekend and continuing through December. Many of you have already started posting the button on your blogs for extra entries and you are probably wondering what this event is all about. I won’t be changing what I do in the sense that I will still be writing reviews, hosting giveaways and posting articles, but most of these will be geared towards holiday gift ideas, recipes, coupons and wishlist items.

The title “Home for the Holidays” was inspired in a few ways. First and foremost, my dear husband is home for the holidays this year! As many of you know he just returned last month from a 14+ month tour in Iraq and missed many holidays while he was away including my DD’s first Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. In addition, when I think of the holidays I think of the best place on earth: home. Whether you are building a snowman in the front yard and coming inside to warm up with some hot chocolate; going to grandma and grandpa’s to be with family; or in the kitchen with your little ones baking delicious treats for the season it is all about home and family to me.

So how do you get your extra entries? You have a few options:

1. Post the Home for the Holidays event button on your blog or website for the duration of the event and get three (3) extra entries in any current HFTH giveaway. Leave the URL where the button is located with your extra entry comments so I can confirm the location of the button. Buttons must be posted before November 15, 2009 to be eligible for these additional entries.

2. Blog about the HFTH event including the icon, links to my website (or this article) and details about the event for five (5) extra entries in any HFTH giveaway. You can also add information about my blog in general or write about a sponsor you are excited about that is participating in the event. I just ask that you make it interesting and add your own personality to the article. Blog articles must be posted no later than November 15, 2009 for these extra entries.

3. In addition to blogging (or if you don’t have a blog) email me with your favorite holiday recipe or craft. Depending on the detail of the recipe/craft idea I will award extra entries. Gift ideas for friends and family also welcome. If you have another idea for an extra entry email me and I’ll let you know what your idea is worth! These ideas preferred by November 30, 2009.
