So, it seems my sweet, honey of a husband has had a light bulb moment of a brainstorm and is realizing the value of a blog. Value! In a blog! Can you imagine the lunacy?
In short, he would like me to talk about his new business. Obviously, I am hesitant to talk gift cards on Snapgifts.com all the damned time. While I am really, really excited about this business, I want to be careful of watering down my stern, serious, very authoritative voice here. The masses look up to me, right?
Ah hell, who am I kidding?
Okay...okay. On a serious note, I suspect all of us can think of at least one blogger in our feed reader who spends the majority of their posts plugging their paying gigs. And I do not want to be That Blogger. *shudder*
So, this is the deal. When I talk Husband's Business, I will just put a title of "For Shame" on these particular posts. Those of you who loathe unabashed peddling can merely move along, right? Seriously, click your ass on out. I will not be offended. Promise! Is that simple enough? To be fair, I should note that I will be hosting a series of giveaways within those posts. Cruel, am I not?
So, you are asking "What the hell is Snapgifts.com??" Quite simply, it is a site that provides a central portal for purchasing gift cards - both varieties of cards are offered! Yes, your grandma's landfill-stuffing, plastic cards of yore and additionally, we offer e-cards that would make little Al Gore fill his pants. Our e-cards can be personalized, then emailed to the recipient. From there, they can either be printed or simply shown via a smartphone. Our particular focus is on local businesses and to that end, we are in the process of networking with local businesses. And of course, all of this makes long-distance gift-giving a piece of cake.
So, Giveaway #1 shall commence:
We are giving away a $50 Snapgifts.com gift card that can be used for any of the merchants listed on our site!
Leave a comment here and tell me what you are most looking forward to this holiday season! If you would like an extra chance to win, please post this on your own blog (if you could use the verbiage "gift cards at Snapgifts.com" in your link that helps us get the word out with Google. Ahem.) Please let me know if you have posted on your site or not so I can keep track.
This giveaway closes Sunday, November 15th at Midnight, CST. I am really sorry, but this can only be open to US Residents.
So, what am I looking forward most to this holiday season? Christmas lights!!! The kids and I had so much fun playing I Spy Pumpkins all throughout October. Damn, their heads are going to explode with all of the lights around here.
