I have decided to publish the remainder of the giveaways in our giveaway series this coming Black Shopping Weekend. So keep your eye out for that post to publish on Thanksgiving night at midnight. The giveaway will end at midnight on Sunday.
There are a few hints I'm going to leak out in this post, but I can't reveal it all just yet. I will make further announcements about these hints in the upcoming days. (I sure hope you're subscribed so you don't miss it)
Pix-O-Sphere has a few new updates and some big updates in the way that will make the site even better. They even have a very special limited time offer coming soon.
I also want to take a minute to let you know about a project I worked on for a few years that hasn't been heard from in a while. Because of the changes that have taken place in our lives over the last year, that project fell to the way side. We had too many spinning plates and had to downsize our schedule and get our lives back on track with what is important first, family. God put us on a different path in ministry and it took all our extra effort to get those ducks in a row. Then, of course, there was the creation of Pix-O-Sphere that became a full time job for us.
The project I am speaking of was a girls magazine that quickly became a ladies magazine. The mothers were so impressed with the site that they were subscribing for themselves too. Well, those years of homeschool girls are grown and on their own paths with God now, leaving the site as contributors. They did an awesome job and their writing was worthy of our Lord and the site has been built up to just over 800 email subscribers and a few hundred more in various other blog readers and such. The site has a Twitter account and Facebook page where we promote the articles being posted.
I say all that to tell you this....the site is undergoing a renovation of sorts. We used to run it as a magazine, but have now switched to only the blog format.
We want to open up this window of opportunity for all women of faith to contribute articles no matter what their niche is. It could be recipes, crafts, homeschool, decorating, parenting, etc. So long as these women of faith 'blog with grace'. This is a great tool that can be utilized by the faith-ful blogosphere to get their work out to various ladies all over the world and help bring new friends back to your own blog as well as the others who will be contributing.
There is no schedule commitment required to blog with us at Growing in Grace. Simply send in your submissions as often as you'd like. Keep an eye out at the blog for more details and I'll share more on this after the Black Friday Shopping Weekend. We are helping a local gift giving program with their shopping and will be away from the computer on Black Friday. But I'll be tweeting about anything comical or bizarre while we're out. ;O)
OH! And don't forget to swing by the HSBAPost for the updates about the winners of the homeschool blog awards. They even have the nominations still listed, in case you didn't get a chance to click through those fabulous blogs. Have fun and congratulations to all who won and those who were nominated.
