Bies who are New.


You guys are so sweet offering donations!  I don't know, I just wouldn't feel right asking.

We'll just keep pushing our site to get more ads... ideally, we want a sponsor..... a corporation who gets the whole blog.... like, "The Secret is in the Sauce" brought to you by Kraft.

They would pay us loads of money and we would give away the most fabulous prizes.

Ah, I have big dreams people.  Big Dreams.  

Any of you work in PR?  We really need some expert direction.  

Enough about my delusions of grandeur, onto the newbies.

As usual more to come... we are on a hot streak right now... WOO-HOO!

I hate adsense!

Google just disabled my account for "invalid clicking".... and guess what?

The $280 that SITS had earned?  GONE.

I am livid right now!

Not only did those ads get clicked on, they received 1,000 of impressions.

I am done clicking girls.... I am officially boycotting adsense.

See backwards.. pretty clever, right?

Hope you are all of a great week!

Heather and I just got a bunch of super cute business cards for SITS, we are going to be leaving around at the car wash, dentist office, or giving to bloggers we meet at the park.

If any of you would like some, email me your address and I'll send some to you!

As always, thanks for the ad clicking!!!!

Blog address update

Hello All-
In all fairness to our newbies... There was a blog address listed incorrectly on the list.

Dana's blog was listed under fillinthecake.blogspot. She has let me know that that is not her daily blog. She said she hid that one in her profile.

Here is her daily blog . Composing Hallelujahs.

She said she just joined last week and already loves it! Kudos to Heather and Tiffany as always!

So if we leave comment love, leave it on this site.

Thank you

P.S. Julia at Our Simple Life, was trying to get her new Blog The Apron Goddesses some newbie love. Her daily blog was already listed. Kind of the reverse situation as above. It's a really cute site!

I'm Back

Hi Welcomistas!
I've been MIA for a few days. I see we have a ton of new bloggers to welcome. Yippee!!
It's been difficult for me to hit all the newbies, all the welcomistas and then still hit SITS everyday, but I am working on creating a schedule so that I can put everyone in rotation. My goal is to hit all of the welcomistas at least once a week. I'll hit the newbies once and if I like what I see I'll work them in as well. Of course I try to hit SITS and the featured blogger's three posts daily. Whew! And now I have to remember to click some ads as well....okay, okay...I can do this!!

FYI, I wanted to let you ladies know that I blog at Because I was invited to this blog using my gmail address, it automatically attached to my blogspot blog. I don't know how to update my Blogger profile to show that my real blog is over at wordpress, so I've decided to move some of my posts over to blogger. Just in case you clicked on my name and found this shell of a blog at blogspot, now you know where my bloggy home is ;)
I am currently on a 7 day vacation with my two young children and hubby had to back out at the last minute because of work (good times...not!). I'll be attempting to blog about it daily on blogspot.
So I guess the bottom line is find my entire blog at wordpress or stay tuned as I update blogspot.
It's so great to be on the team with you ladies!

New Girls!

To answer some of Lisa's questions below, Heather and I started our giveaways with our own $$$. More recently, as you have noticed, SITS was given a vacuum donated by Bissell and the coffee thing from Keurig (they also gave Heather a free one... why didn't I ask Bissell for a vacuum?)

Saturday Spotlight prizes are also donated/

Anyway, we use the money from the ads for the prizes... SO please click SITS!!!

Is there anyone out there who wants to be in charge of creating and maintaining our blog roll?

I will make you an admin, and you can enter all the blogs of the welcomistas so we can visit when they are updated.

To be fair, I will probably delete any welcomistas that haven't done any welcoming in a few weeks, as this blog is specifically for those who do the welcoming.. and I am hitting on these links too, so a big thank you to those of you who have taken the time...I see you there!

I am going to add a feedburner field so that you can subscribe by email.

Now for some Newbies- we've got a ton, but I am going to spread them out a bit, so here's a batch!

Let's get that blogroll up, and we can start clicking each other ads.. if we each clicked on one anther's ads, we could all stand to make $60 or $70 per month!

Hey Gals!

Ok, you convinced me. I just added AdWords to my site ;) Please send me some clicky love ;) I'll keep clicking yours as well.

One quick question...Why can't I add this blog to my google reader? It would make it so much easier for me to log in and get the links. Is it because this is a private blog?

Also, I notice a lot of bloggers on here have a 100th post giveaway. How do you decide on your giveaway? Where do you get the items from? My 1000th post is coming up and I think I'd like to do a giveaway, myself!

Friday, February 13, 2009


I love this welcoming stuff!! It is so fun!! Hope everyone has a great weekend and wanted to let you all know that I have ads on my page now!!! Loving that too...another obsession that is all i need!! I'll show you click live , you show me some!!!

Help from the Wagonistas!

Hi fab Wagonista Friends!
It's been SO FUN visiting all of you and checking out the newbie SITStas!

Some of you know it's one of my lifetime goals to get a recipe published in a major magazine....

I'm entered in Mixing Bowl's "Calling All Cupcakes" Contest and am neck-and-neck with another baker to win $200 and get our recipe published. The winner is determined by number of votes on their website.

Will you go and vote for my Chili Cacao Mayan Cupcakes? Go here to vote you can vote once a day unti March 2nd!

Look for Chili Cacao Mayan Cupcakes (if you don't see them on the first or second page, click on the first page again and they magically show up. Weird, I know.) Thank you!! -Mandy

Hey Welcomistas!

I don't know about you but I'm LOVIN' this Welcome stuff.. YOU ALL seem to beat me to the punch but that's cool, I like gettin' in the last word (ha ha). I wanted to let you all know I just had a FAB guest blogger today and I'm giving away a Sephora card to go with the post.. she is a fashion and beauty insider and her advice is GREAT.. PLEASE stop by gang, put your name into the hat.. and if you can, shout out about it for me. I'm hoping to get a big giveaway from her employer, maybe if I'm too small time for it SITS could get it, I'm not sure I haven't really worked out anything, BUT traffic is key on this one. I'll owe ya big time..and I already heart you guys so that goes without saying.

Check it out here

Wow. We have had like 200 new followers in the past week!

I am only forwarding those to you that commented on the welcome post, interested in participating. But, there are quite a few of those!

Thanks for clicking the ads {keep it up!}, I am getting to you guys as often as possible.. I run a large summer camp in Los Angeles, and enrollment just started. We fill within a day or two, so I am nuts right now grouping 800 campers!

Newbies: (This one is a friend of mine, so show her the love!) (This one is a bit edgier in content, your choice.) (As it's name states, this blog is very religious).

Thank you!!!!

More New SITStas

Hi Ladies!

This contest is bringing in all kinds of newbies and we'd love to get them to stick around.

Thank you to all of those who went commenting and to those who went clicking through the adsense on the SITS (and other!) site, we would love to eventually give away a Canon Rebel xti and/or a laptop, so keep the clicks coming!

Here is a list of new readers from this weekend.  If you missed the list on Friday, that is here.
I have also added a space at the top right which will archive all the posts that contained new blogs, so you can find them easily.

So this list is huge, I know.  Do not feel obligated to visit everyone, skip around if you'd like.
There won't usually be this many, it's the contest!

Did you hear?

I wanted to make sure my Wagonistas got the word that I've posted my second Woo Hoo box contest.. aptly titled: Woo Hoo part Deux

It was a BLAST doing the first one and I LOVED the wide spectrum of entries and pay it forward nominations. So if you're up to it.. stop by.

THANKS again for the Click Fest too! I made it up to $47.12!! who knows Google just MIGHT have to send me my $100 THIS year after all ;D

Friday's Newbies.

I am re-posting the links from earlier today in case you missed them, along with some new ones.  We've got lot's of girls joining in due to the new contest, here is the latest batch.  Do what you can, anything is appreciated!

I'm sure there are more to come.  Even a short, sweet comment helps!

Let's not post anything new for the next few days so that this stays on top.

Thanks again for clicking those ads!

Posted below early on Friday: {if you missed them}

Thanks and have a fabulous weekend!

Welcome a new SITSA!

Hey ya'll! A friend of mine, Brandy (ironic huh?) just joined SITS. I told her how much you all ROCK so she wanted to be a part of the SITSahood too! When you get a moment please drop by and welcome her to our "little" group.

I hope everyone is seeing their ad revenue numbers go up, up, up because I've been clicking my little ♥ out!

Have a great weekend!

Thanks girlies

I had a busy day yesterday and didn't stop by the club house.. SO I missed getting my blog (and google ads) in the last post.. BUT someone must have thought of me because I made .24 cents yesterday!! HUGE for my Google tally... I've actually been considering a tongue and cheek post just about how much I DO NOT make with Google. I'm up to a whopping $30.07 and they don't pay you until you hit $100! But I'd blog for free anyway. sshhhh don't tell the hubby!!

I'll be popping by and clicking away on all of your blogs as well (daily hopefully).

Can I also put out there that I got an email from the family friends who are helping the Witt family with Tuesday's memorial on Saturday. They have set up a memorial fund in Tuesday's memory. You can either contact Jen via email at or go to This Blog

Have a FAB Friday my fellow Wagonistas! Who came up with that by the way? It's GREAT!

oh my blog is Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom

Hi Gals!

Here are a few more newbies.

I also have a favor, and since this blog is private, I'll ask it.

When you visit a SITS site (including SITS), if you've got an extra second, click through there google or blogher ads,  if you have them on you site, please let me know and I will get over there as often as possible and do so for you.   It's a great way to help other bloggers, especially in these money tight times.  A few dollars a day can really add up, and Heather and I want to give away some big prizes!

If you don't run ads, but have questions about doing so, feel free to email me.  Google Adsense is very easy, especially if you use blogger.

Do you love it or what? Scary Mommy did it for us, please go thank her if you've got the time.

We got a great comment from a newbie thanking you guys for the generous welcome!

Here's one from today (quite a few who comment have their profile turned off, so I don't know how to find them!):


Hi Ladies!

Here is a great way for us to communicate without making our emails accounts crazy!

I will post the list of new SITStas here as well and you can check in whenever you'd like.

I have also password protected this, so its a private blog just for us and all of you are contributors, it will be our own little clubhouse.
