Let me start this by saying I am not asking for your money. Cool? No money is being asked for here. Ok? Ahem. Anyway….
Cortney bought me a ticket to BlogHer in San Diego at the beginning of August.
And that is as far as the Sluiters can go with funding this huge endeavor. That is why every post I have syndicated on BlogHer (three so far! Dang!) and every sponsored post you see on this blog? Is money going toward my trip.
Even though I believe in my writing ability? I know it’s probably not possible for me to save up the close to $1000 I will need to make this trip happen in that small of increments.
So I have applied for some help.
One that is for a sponsorship through a company is announcing this weekend. With over 200 applicants, it’s sort of a long shot, so we will see.
The other is for a grant through Mom Central–a $2000 grant to be exact. My application was accepted and right now, on faceboook contest apps, they are holding public voting. Voting is open until April 15 and people can vote once every 24 hours.
To vote for me, click here and then click the big, green VOTE button. It’s that easy. Every 24 hours.
Clearly if I win this grant, I will get more money than I need to go to BlogHer. With whatever is left, I plan to take a writing course and put the rest into The Red Dress Club. I believe that ever since I began linking up with their prompts, I have been producing better writing, and since becoming one of the hostesses? A whole new world has opened to me. I credit those ladies with pushing me to be the best writer I can.
I really need to get to BlogHer. I want to be a better blogger.
So please? Vote for me every 24 hours!
