Blogger Thank You & A Spring Sale

Happy Friday Ladies! I wanted to remind everyone that today is the last day to enter our current healthy giveaway. It will close tonight at 11pm. Today is also the last day for anyone wanting to add their definition of a classy woman into my new book in the form of a quote. I have enjoyed reading every one so far and look forward to adding them.

I wanted to take a moment to thank a couple of my blogger friends. I have met some wonderful people here in the blogosphere. I love reading everyone's comments, your reader request e-mails, your kind words and I am so taken back when another blogger decides to include me in some way on their blog whether it be adding me to their blog roll or adding me to a post, or adding my blog button to their sidebar.

You might remember that Kristin of My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia was the winner of our Clinique Spring Giveaway last month. She is also a super sweet, positive woman that I've come to know over the past few months. She also regularly has a kind comment to leave on my blog and she is so warm and genuine. She is a Classy Woman all the way!

Not only did she say thank you but she wrote a super sweet e-mail to me and even included me in a post on her blog! She was so excited that she included me in  THIS post after the mailman delivered her package. She also added me to her blogroll months ago so others could find me. :)  I wanted to thank Kristin as her links to my blog brought in more new visitors this past month of April than any other source which I was amazed to learn. Her blog has been very successful in the few short months that she's been blogging about beautiful decor and home transformations on a budget. She recently hit the 500 follower mark and her kitchen has even landed a spot in Better Homes and Gardens' upcoming Kitchens & Bath issue. Good things come to good people. :)

When I started this blog my intention was to provide a positve message, help other women to become who they truly wanted to be and their best self. Kristin thank you for helping me to reach more women to hopefully do just that.

Last month I came across Kirsten's blog titled Gobs of Giveaways. She is also a lovely lady who is a successful blogger that features all kinds of giveaways on her blog. She reviews a lot of great products too. I was so excited when I learned that she offered ad space on her blog for just $5! It fits perfectly into my budget and is super affordable for anyone, this is my second month advertising with her. I hope you'll pop on over and check it out, it could help you drive traffic to your next giveaway. She also wrote a post about this month's giveaway. Thank you Kirsten!

Kirsten has inspired me to implement the same model. I want advertising to be affordable for everyone. If you are interested in a monthly spot  here at Classy & Fabulous, I'll be offering a spring sale here for the next 2 months. If it goes really well, I'll extend it indefinitely. Ad spots will be payable via Paypal at just $5 for a 30-day spot. Check out our Sponsors page for more details.

I also want to thank each and every one of YOU who have blogged, tweeted, or added my blog button to your sidebar. I really appreciate it-love you guys!

Have an amazing weekend!
