First off, I added the button to my blog, and have posted about the give away.

My favorite part of this blog are the tricks of the trade. Most of the questions asked are either questions I have had or questions I didn't think about until now. I love all the advice too.

Bridget said...

Another fun giveaway! Well, I'd have to say my favorite thing is also the tricks of the trade because a lot of interesting questions come out. Oh, and my other favorite things is the MD Admin - but that's probably just kissing up, right?

(I also have the button on my blog...)
