Like My New And Improved Lucky Look?

So, I’ve been cleaning up my sidebar because I was crashing some computers with either my blogrolls or mybloglog or both. Until I can figure out what and why, the blogrolls have a temporary new home.

I also added a new background and played with the template a little while I was tinkering…just because. What do you think???

I’m hoping it will bring me some luck in these blog contests.

First up, our contests at Mamanista! I’m turning 30 and since I usually don’t like to make a big deal out of my birthday, I thought I would give you guys the presents. There are three up right now with two more to come on Monday and Tuesday:

PLUS, For Bloggers Only, A Halloween Recipe Carnival with Prizes. Please share a recipe…I need to try some new ones!!!

Now, I think with my lucky template and my upcoming birthday, I deserve to win at least one of these awesome contests:

  • You can win an 8-gig Ipod Nano at It’s Write Now!! Just go to the giveaway post and see how you can enter to win this fabulous giveaway! (ends October 31)
  • Whenever I shop, I search for coupon codes from sites like Right now you can Win a Nintendo Wii from their coupon blog EverybodyLovesCoupons. (ends October 31)
  • So, A Blonde Walks Into A Review is run by a real sweetheart who likes to give away cool stuff, go to this post to find out how to win an item from Island Baby Boutique. (ends October 14)
  • Katja at Skimbaco is another sweetie and she has a Madallie Gift Certificate to give away. I love to travel so it would be awesome to win this. Madallie is also a Mamanista! affiliate, too. (ends October 14)
