500 Is A Buncha Damn Posts!

Holy hell, I made it through 499 posts without getting kicked off the damn internet! That's cause for celebration, don't ya think?

I asked for ideas to mark this occasion. Noone took me up on entering to win my children - cowards - but the awesome Sara at Ordinary & Awesome and Subjective Beauty has offered to sponser a giveaway of one of her fabulous blog designs. She did my design and I still go to my own blog just to look at it all the time because it's THAT awesome. The design package she is offering up is here, the $60 Custom Package. The custom blog design will include:


Custom Template (2 or 3 columns)
Custom Header (the sky is the limit)
Custom background
Navigation image (unlimited links)
Unlimited sidebar images
Social buttons (Twitter, Facebook, BlogHer, etc.)
Hosting space via her server
Button for linking (150x150)
Post signature
Email image
Post divider
Favicon (bookmark icon)
Flash animated greeting message
Installation

And, for anyone who enters the giveaway and does not win, simply for entering and following the rules, they may sign up for a Custom Blog Design at Subjective Beauty and receive 50% off their order. Sara's a pretty rockin' blog designer so $60 is a bargain but $30 for all that? Cannot be beat!

If you want to enter to win the Custom Blog Design you must go to SubjectiveBeauty.com, browse Sara's work, then come back here and comment which design you liked the best. This is the qualifying entry and it MUST be done to be eligible to win. It's really that easy. Now since I'm such a Mother Theresa, for extra entries you can also

  • Follow Subjective Beauty through Blogger and leave a separate comment saying you have or are following

  • Follow My Kids Might Be Martians and leave a separate comment saying you have or are following

  • Add Subjective Beauty's button to your sidebar/blogroll and leave a separate comment saying you added it or already had it

  • Add the My Kids Might Be Martians button to your sidebar/blogroll and leave a comment saying you added it or already had it

  • Follow Subjective Beauty on Twitter and leave a separate comment with a link saying you have or are following

  • Follow My Kids Might Be Martians on Twitter and leave a separate comment with a link saying you have or are following

  • Twitter about the giveaway (including a link to Subjective Beauty) and leave a separate comment with a link saying you did

REMEMBER TO LEAVE A SEPARATE COMMENT FOR EACH ENTRY!

Just to show off my math skills, that's a total of 8 possible entries. So get busy boys and girls, the giveaway ends on Friday April 10th at noon. I will announce the winner on Saturday April 10th here as well as by email to the winner. If the winner doesn't accept their fabulous prize within 48 hours a new winner will be chosen.

The other part of my Big 500 Anniversary is Peggy from Stir Crazy in the Suburbs will be interviewing me. She's shaking off a hangover as we speak but she'll have her assault ready for me soon. Be on the lookout for that.

Hi I'm Linda. said...

Congratulations Sassy-oh I mean Sissy.
My name is Linda and hope to be blogging real soon. Sissy you are witty, I like your style especially "get your big girl panties on" that is too cute. I have been looking for a blog designer for three weeks and surfed myself to your blog, its awesome. Sarah at Subjective Beauty creativity and prices are fantastic. I love her Tiara & Tantrums design. I feel like I've already won because I know who will be designing my blog.
Happy writing. Linda in Ashland
