Welcome To The Summer Block Party

Welcome, welcome, pull your chair up to the barbeque and let me tell you about the best damned opportunity in our little corner of the blogosphere. Before we start, grab a cold beer from the cooler or maybe a mojito from the pitcher on the table. It’s too hot to be without refreshments. Now, y’all have to agree that the best parties have door prizes, right? Well, this fabulous party has some truly amazing door prizes for y’all to win. See, this little block party here is sponsored by 6 amazing bloggers and one of the coolest companies I’ve heard about, AboutOne.

Let me tell you a little about AboutOne. When you have an account with AboutOne, it’s like you have a cross between the most amazingly stupendous file cabinet you could ever have and the sharpest, most savvy personal assistant anyone could ever want. AboutOne allows you to keep everything important in one location. Let me repeat that, IT ALLOWS YOU TO KEEP EVERYTHING IMPORTANT IN ONE LOCATION. Seriously guys, for those of you still dealing with infertility hell, you can scan all your medical records in and have them available any time, anywhere. You could use the calender to track all your doctor’s appointments and even your medicine schedule. And, for those of you with children, the advantages of AboutOne just multiply. You can track anything you want, growth, medical records, shot records, scan in artwork, upload videos, and more. The thing I am most excited about is being able to track everything about my oldest son’s high school years. Marty is starting high school in the fall and AboutOne will let me track his grades, his extra-curricular activities, any volunteer activities, and test scores. I can also scan in copies of any awards he receives and keep track of the starting and ending dates for all these activities. I truly wish something like this had existed 14 years ago when Marty was born because I suck at writing down all the milestones in a book but I totally ROCK at keeping things updated online. Just imagine what a boon an AboutOne account can be to all of you. What’s more my dear friends, AboutOne is also PERFECT for childfree couples or couples whose kids have grown up and moved out. You can keep copies of all receipts and tax info in your AboutOne account and track job opportunities or recognition in addition to all the other features mentioned. I am truly amazed at the platform they have developed over at AboutOne and I can’t wait to use it as they continue to expand what it does.

Now, what you’ve all been waiting for. Here’s the scoop on the amazing prizes and how to enter.

    A week after you got your license, you hit a dog. So sad…I remember the first animal I hit was a bunny, and I felt terrible!
