"I agree with Rachel. If I had waited for companies to contact me, I would of not had many reviews and giveaways so far. I (after a year of blogging) have had way more opportunities from pitching companies myself than the other way around!"

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a single mom with two kids, ages eleven and twenty one. Nope, did not plan it that way. The saying 'life is what happens when you're busy making plans ' fits! Love decorating, crafting, gardening...anything and everyrhing that helps to make a house a home. Which is the reason for my current blog. Will soon be starting another blog that chronicles life's sweet and sour moments. Also enjoy reading, reality TV, cooking & entertaining, popcorn and coffee. Wish I knew how to do website design.
What is your blogging philosophy?
You have to be yourself and be honest. It is great to share and everyone has something to bring into the mix. You have to speak (write) from the heart but with a little guidance from the brain!
I have been blogging since...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

As for the sidebar, from what i can tell you have 3 sidebars. 1 for sponsors (which is big) and 2 smaller ones that go side to side underneath the sponsors. You should be able to add mores widgets (HTML codes) under your sponsors box for those items that are bigger than 125x125. Let me know if this helps or if i need to explain myself better :)

I hear you with the font thing! It was driving me crazy too! You should change the font style and size by going to LAYOUR->FONTS AND COLORS->teXT FONT. When you try to change the font directly from the post it just makes a big old mess and it never stays like you wwant it to. To get a different font than what blogger offers, that needs to be changed in the HTML code.

What types of problems on blogger are you having? I can try to help but, I'm no expert. Also I tried to take a look at your blog but, you have it set to invited readers only so I couldn't look at it. -Jen
