Since the majority of my audience is from the States, according to my Alexa demographics, I know most of you have way better things to do today than read my blog. so I’ll keep this short and sweet (which will make my little SEO Beast thingy scream “not enough words! Not enough headers! You should bold something at least!!” before it pitches a fit and falls over from bits and bytes failure. Not that I make it happy half the time anyway, as I’m not the best at the whole SEO thing. I like to write things that sound natural, not things that sound like I’m stuffing in keywords in an attempt to score points with the Google gods.While some bloggers have mastered both, I just can’t seem to get there.

Anyway, short and sweet, like I said. I just wanted to wish everyone a happy Fourth of July, and remind you to enter the Freedom Hop Giveaway for $20 worth of books (you can’t miss it, I made it a sticky post for the duration of the giveaway). Also, on July 11th, Eric Goodman, author of The Flightless Goose, will be here to answer any questions you may have about him or the book. Don’t forget to check out the interview I did with him and enter to win your very own copy of this charming children’s story. On July 25th, the Christmas in July giveaway hop kicks off. I have a prize package for you totaling over $200, including a $120 Thompson’s WaterSeal Deck Care package, some gorgeous handmade paper crafts from Pam Creates, a Mixbook photo book, a $25 Amazon gift card sponsored by HerZine, and more.

Now go enjoy those barbecues, fireworks, and other fun festivities. Jake and I will be attending the annual Freedom Festival in a park in our town. “See” you all tomorrow!
