Bye Bye Blogger?

Well, I guess the poop has hit the fan. As you all may already know, google owns blogger. Google is getting rid of the FTP publishing. NOT GOOD!! FTP publishing is File Transfer Protocol publishing. What this means for us as bloggers that use blogger or blogspot.com is that we won't be able to upload pictures, videos, etc. etc. The list goes on and on.

Posttwo.com has a free script code, but I'm trying to find out where it is and how I can get my hands on it. The script code they have will fix what google is messing up. When I get it I'll post a link for my readers too. Ugh, I'm REALLY getting tired of google.

I think alot of the reason that Google is doing this is becuase of that lawsuit they had recently. I think they got sued by viacom for using copyrighted content from viacom that users were using in their videos on youtube. So now Google is going way over the top while really ticking alot of people (including me) in the process.

Until the next time, blog on my friends, blog on.

Don't forget!

In a few earlier posts I've asked for some of your favorite items from your favorite shops on Etsy. I'm going to be turning this into a contest, and there will be prize money!!! BerryBlueCreations won our last contest, don't miss out on your turn this time! Just post the links from the shops in a comment below. The only rule is that you cannot use items from your own shop(s). Have fun! :D

Okay, those ads didn't work for me

I was trying out those ads at the top of my blog, and they're yucky. Sorry bout that, I was just seeing how they looked. Anyways, you won't have to worry 'bout ads for quite awile. I really don't like the flash ones, they're annoying and give me a headache.

I'll stop complaining now, and show you some more totally awesome stuff from YCAF's shop.
Here we go! :D

In the doghouse? Need to love yourself a little? Then get this beautiful love in a jar! You can't loose, there's chocolate inside!!! It's absolutely gorgeous with the rose on top. The rose accents it beautifully. You can make it yours for only $10.



I've also chosen this beautiful crocheted brown and purple hat to be featured. I think y'all will like it, and even more so because it's ON SALE!!! That's right ladies! This adorable hat is on sale for only $3!



Happy shopping everyone!

Want to make your blog work for you?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.



I just signed up for socialspark today. Well, this morning actually. So far I really like it. It's user friendly, and they have so many opportunities available! You can put ads on your blog and get paid per click. It's like google adwords, only WAY better. You can also get paid for posting a post (usually about 200 words) for advertisers.



The few clickable ads I've seen pay around thirteen cents a post. That is so much better than google ad words, and you can actually choose what goes on your blog. If you choose to post for an advertiser I've seen offers from around $5 to $25. There are even some that give you free stuff to try so you can blog about it! The best part? You can remain COMPLETELY honest and still get paid. I've included a few links below so you can check it out too.

New Found Items from ThePixelPrince

Hi everyone! I was browsing around in ThePixelPrince's shop and I found a few REALLY funny posters that are sure to make you laugh too! Check them out below.

This one has an old saying on it with an added twist. It says "Where there's a will there's a way". Only when you look closer the "there's a way" is crossed out so it then reads "Where there's a will there are 500 relatives". I laughed so hard! I hope you get a kick out of it too.

This poster measures 11x14, and it's only $10! This would make a great gift for the funny person in your life. We all have one (mine is my husband).





This poster measures 14x11, and is $10. It has a picture of a dog on it and says "What do you call a dog with no legs? It doesn't matter what you call him he's not gonna come to you".




If these posters are too big or not big enough check out thepixelprince's shop on etsy. They make many of these posters in different sizes. I'm thinking of getting a different size of the "Where there's a will" one for my other half. ;) Shhhhhhh, don't tell!

You can get to thepixelprince's shop quickly and easily by clicking on their shop link at the top left side of my blog under 'My Fave links'. Happy shopping everyone!

New found site for online shoppers~CouponChief.com

Amanda Fouts V.A. from CouponChief.com has contacted me recently to post an article about thier site. I am getting paid for this post, but I'm still remaining completely honest as to what I think of thier site.

CouponChief.com has a TON of coupons that range from wholesale and toys, to home decor and accesories. If you can find a site to shop at online, they probably have a coupon for it!

They also have a great incentive program for members called "Pays-2-Share". All you do is sign up for the pays-2-share program, upload coupons, and when someone uses the coupon you upload you get 2% of the sales! In case you're wondering, they do pay by paypal and by check. I'm not sure about other means of payment, but they do say they pay by paypal and check.

Another feature I like, and I'm sure you will too, is if you have an online store you can post it on couponchief.com for free! I found this on their hompage on the right towards the bottom. Since I have quite a few followers that have an Etsy shop, I thought you might like this. :)

The only thing that concerns me is that this site does not have an SSL certificate. An SSL certificate places security on the site and helps to keep information safe. When I asked Amanda about this she ensured that their members information is safe and no one needs to enter any insecure information if they so choose.

Since you won't really be shopping on thier site I think you'll be okay. You just get the code and go shopping. But I would safeguard information such as phone numbers, etc. just to be safe. You don't have to be a member to use the coupons listed.

I do want to mention that they have quite a few REALLY good coupons that expire very soon. If you like Vera Bradley you may want to hurry to get this coupon code. They have 17% off on any 1 item!

They also have an amazing Clinique coupon. It's free shipping for any order over $40. I use clinique and know how easily you can get up to a $40 purchase. I love Clinique because their makeup lasts forever and doesn't make my skin break out.

Here's the link to CouponChief.com. At least take a look around to see what you can find. They have some amazing deals! If you have an online store, this would be a great way to get some exposure to your site.

New Featured Seller!~~thepixelprince

I'd like to welcome thepixelprince as this weeks featured seller! I tried to post yesterday, but blogger was having some issues.

Now before I show you some amazing items straight out of thepixelprince's shop, I'm going to tell you a little about thepixelprince.

Thepixelprince is a husband and wife team on Etsy. Kenny and Rene are the creators of thepixelprince. They opened their Etsy shop October 26, 2009. Since then they've had 18 sales. They currently have 43 items for sale, and 100% feedback. Way to go you guys!

Now that I've introduced you to thepixelprince, here are just a few really cool items from their shop.

I love spongebob, so I HAD to put this next item in this post. This poster measures 11x14, and is one of the very few posters that are sold already framed. This is the only one that will be sold, so if you love spongebob like I do you better grab this fast! You can make this one of a kind spongebob poster yours for $19.99. What a deal!


I also found this really cool poster of the United States. It's totally awesome! All the states are made to look like their state flag. How cool is that? This poster measures 12x16, but they do have different sizes available. This awesome poster is only $13.99!


Both of the posters above would make great birthday presents for school birthday parties that your children get invited to.
