#326!! HELP! :) A challenge and a contest!

# 326 Ramblings Of A Stay At Home Mom 


So I looked at where I was in the Top Baby Blogs site. I was all the way at the bottom about a week ago, and, thanks to my awesome followers and readers, and even those just passing through, I am on the 3rd to last page at the top!!

So all my wonderful readers, I have a challenge and a contest for you! If you, my awesome people, can do one of a few things, I will randomly pick 3 people and give away a prize!

Here is what you have to do, and you have a month to do it, should you choose to accept!!

1. Get me to at least #300 OR get me 10 more followers
2. Post a comment on here telling me what you did, as well as a link back to your blog, so you can be properly thanked
3. Tweet, Facebook, Hoot, whatever, this contest (post in your comment that you did this as well)

I think that is simple enough! 3 people will be chosen to either receive a $10.00 iTunes Email Gift Card, an Amazon Gift Card for $10.00 or a $10.00 Gift Card to the winners choice of where ever they want!

Mentioning which one you would like to win MAY or MAY NOT help in determining your prize, but it doesn't hurt to try...right?!

So go forth and promote...and don't forget to list your link in your comments, so I can promote YOU too!

So the blog party has ended for another year. Of course, I could have posted more, if my 3 year old, myself, and my husband did not get sick!

The family that gets sick together, sticks together, right?!

But the good thing is...there is an AFTER PARTY!! That's right, there is an after party for the Ultimate Blog Party...what can I say, I love a good party!

So I am hoping to find some more awesome blogs, kind of like:

JDaniel4smom
This Adventure, Our Life and
Ramblings of a Crazy Momma

Some new blogging mamas I found during the party!

I hope to "meet" more blogging mamas along the way!

Now...to get everyone well again, so I can get back to the important blogging in my life :)



Look for me! I am #131 on THIS page!

Ok so as you may have guessed, I have quite a few ASL Apps on my iPhone. But recently I found out my OTHER love, Kindermusik has some AWESOME apps too!

iPhone app store screen shot kindermusik music apps apple iPad iTouch parents children kids

There are about 30 of them, including Shoo Fly Pie, Mary Bridget's Surprise, and even Do Re Me And You books such as my daughter's personal favorite, Tressa The Musical Princess!

I will have to download more, but for now, I enjoy reading the color books with the little guys!

Now, if Wee Hands would make one like Signing Time does. I will be a happy mama!

It is called Hershey's Chocolate Milk!! His fav USED to be (and kind of still is a close tie!) the Signing Time app where he can watch ST videos...but thanks to his big brother and sister, it is this...


You start with the plain glass where you get to pour in your desired amount of ice cold milk.  After that you can open the bottle of HERSHEY’S syrup and mix it right into the cup.  Use your spoon to accurately mix it all in so that you have a good concentration of delicious chocolate syrup.  Once you have mixed it all in you can get out your straw and sip a little bit at a time or drink it all at once.  This whole time you will be entertained by the realistic motions, sounds, and objects that emanate from the screen. 

This is quite the fun app! And you never run out of milk or syrup! 

Here he is, enjoying his "milk"...





Features:
  • This app allows you to create the perfect glass of chocolate milk and to drink it virtually
  • Pull out the Hershey’s bottle and pour the syrup right into the glass of milk
  • Once you have poured the proper amount of syrup in the milk, pull out the spoon and begin stirring to create the perfect consistency
  • Pull out your trusty straw and take a sip of the milk, or drink it all at once if you are really thirsty
  • You can also use the straw to blow bubbles into your chocolate milk
  • The visual effects are actually very realistic and it will make you want to really drink chocolate milk
  • You can choose what kind of sound you want the app to make when you are done sipping the milk out of the glass

Screenshot of the first page of my iPhone :) 

Well let's see...I have almost 100 apps on my phone. But there are a few I use daily!

Facebook, of course -Great for posting a status, checking other people's status, and retrieving email. You can even Chat or post an entry on your wall.
Twitterific -- Standing in line somewhere or waiting in the carpool line and want to stay connected to the Twittersphere? View and post tweets. You can even view someone's User Information.
Foursquare- check in anywhere!
Intuition- great calendar for busy moms
Kinderstats- tale pictures and post vital information about your children, in case they ever get lost
Beejive - utilizes all the major chats, including Facebook, right in one app!
Words With Friends - play scrabble with friends, or random players...this is ADDICTING!
Bejeweled 2 (which connects to Facebook) - get 3 in a row to get the highest score!
Bookworm - another word game, beat the burning tiles!
iPet Pets - raise a pet, and visit other pets!
Tetris - this needs no explanation!
Starbucks Mobile Card - register and view your Starbucks giftcards!
AT&T Family Map - locate up to 5 family members on the AT&T circuit.
TwitPic- take pictures and send them directly to Twitter.


Of course that is just a few, but those are the ones I LOVE and could not live without!!!! Maybe someday I will be able to get a bigger GB iPhone, and trade in my 8GB...but for now, it holds a ton of apps, shows, music and videos!


Leave a comment with your favorite app...on any phone! I know that there are a couple I had on my Blackberry that I miss! What is YOUR favorite!

So what to write about?

I am sitting here wondering what I should blog about in the coming days for the Blog Party. I was thinking of having a give away, or 2, rambling about parenting issues, maybe just giving a daily account of what my kiddos are doing.

I guess this is a ramble too, huh, lol.

Well, I do have one question for my readers...do any of you iPhone users use any kind of blog app? If so what, how much is it, and how do you like it? Of course, this will bring me one step closer to not having to use my laptop! Then I may have to change my logo for my site to a mom with an iPhone instead of the computer!!!!!!!!!!

Oh that gives me an idea...maybe I will give away a iTunes gift card...hmmmmmm

So what kind of prizes do YOU like to win from blogs? I would love to have more giveaways, and maybe get some sponsors to help me. So if you give away things, who do you do it through, and what do you have to do for it?!

I may not be new to blogging, but I am certainly new to giveaways!!! I could use all the help I can get in that area!

Until tomorrow!
