Just wanted to let you know that my DIY Dump Truck is making an appearance over on Melissa's blog, Melomomma, today!

Alternative Name

I got to know Melissa through her "Share It Fridays" blog hop and love to meet other great blogging friends through her site!  Plus she has lots of great crafts and recipe ideas; you should head over there and check her out!

Also, I wanted to remind you that I still have great opportunities for Dirt Cheap Advertising!  Here were my stats as of last Thursday, 3/30/2011, when I first mentioned accepting sponsorship:

257 GFC followers
10, 305 pageviews last month
about 350 pageviews per day
62 followers on Twitter
55 Facebook friends who like my page and 137 who like my homepage

Here are my stats 13 days later, as of today:

311 GFC followers
 12, 528 pageviews last month
about 400 pageviews per day
71 followers on Twitter
67 Facebook friends who like my page and 151 who like my homepage.

That means that in three months since I've been doing this, my followers have increased by 900%!  I average about 5 new followers per day.  I also just agreed to write a parenting column for the local newspaper which will link directly back here, and to do a weekly post for my great sponsor Upper Valley Connections!  So what does that tell you?  Jump on the bandwagon now!  Big things are happening here!

Click here to find out more specifics about what I'm offering and at what price, or check out my Dirt Cheap Advertising tab above.  I'd love to share this space with you and celebrate your blog or etsy shop!

Also, I have to thank Jeanette at Mommy Blesssings In Small Bundles, Amie from And We're Off To... and Kate from Calamity Kate's Kitchen for each giving me an award!  I'm feeling so great today!

These three ladies have really wonderful sites with parenting advice and stories, exciting giveaways, reviews, beautiful photos and yummy-sounding recipes!  I'm always inspired to try something new when I'm over there!

Thank you one and all for your support of my blog, whether it's through sponsorship, awards, comments, or just coming by.  I'm still trying to figure out where "Rub Some Dirt On It" is headed, but with all the positive feedback and love, I feel that for now, we're in a good place, and that makes me feel great.  Thank you!
