Just A Moment to Share BIG News - Baltimore, MD. - March 2012

I seriously have like 12 minutes between putting one little lady down for a nap and having the other wake up so I'll make this quick... Well the WanderingLili version of quick.

A couple of months ago a good friend of mine mentioned that a local Baltimore furniture store called Su Casa was having a contest for bloggers and that she thought that I and my blog may have a good shot at getting in. 
 The "Test it. Blog it. Win it." contest” asks a select group of bloggers to document the entire process of creating, ordering, and living with customized furniture from their store. At the end of June they will take a bunch of factors into account and on July 1st, they'll announce that one of their featured furniture testing bloggers has won everything they've been demoing in their home. The cool part though is that even if you aren’t the BIG winner, just by being selected as a finalist blogger you have the opportunity, at the end of the contest, to purchase your custom furniture at 50% off the retail price. 

So after talking it over with the Hub, I submitted an application in the

If selected as a finalist I’ll walk you through the entire process, start to finish, no feelings spared (and when have you known me to be anything other than completely honest). Don’t forget I’m the girl that talks about:

I'm sure there are more, but these are just a few  examples  to reassure you you're going to get the REAL experience from me.  And even though 50% off would be awesome, I’m not one to shoot for second place, so I’ll need your help. 

The way Su Casa makes their decisions on the winner are creativity, quality and frequency of posts, Feedback and commentary on each post, and traffic from the blog sites back to the Su Casa website. I'll do my best to keep the posts coming and make them entertaining, informative and creative, but I need your help on those last 2; Feedback and commentary on each post, and traffic from my blog back to the Su Casa website. This is the one part of the contest that is actually quantifiable, meaning they have a way of seeing where their website traffic sources from and they can also go to our blogs to see how many comments we have on our posts.

I'm SUPER excited to blog about this entire process and hope you'll join us for the ride!

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!

P.S You might find it amusing to know I started this post at 9 o'clock this morning and it is now almost 6:30p.m.  ***SIGH***
