the only other advice that people have given me is super sarcastic and possibly rude, so I won't share that here! but for some advice from my mom, you can read this post.
since I started my blog one year ago today, I thought I would host a little giveaway for you! the prize is $10 PayPal cash or a gift card to the store of your choice (within reason). all entries will be verified, and are void where prohibited. good luck!
