When I was updating the Membership database this weekend, I realized we were just 90 members shy of a great big milestone: 2,000 bloggers signed up as members!! We couldn’t have grown if it wasn’t for all of you who have shared about what’s going on here with your blends and followers; THANK YOU for helping us to expand our community of awesome bloggers who talk about such a wide variety of topics under the general “Healthy Living” umbrella.
I wanted to offer something a little special as a way to show our appreciation to those of you who have spread the HLB word and give newer members of HLB an opportunity to spread the love, too. I decided to add a bit of end of the year celebration to the mix, and create a 2013 by 2013 December Member Referral Drive! We’re taking our regular Member Referral Program and kicking it up a notch.
Write a blog post as part of our December Member Referral Drive before December 31st. Once your post is live on your site, leave a comment with the link on our 2,013 by 2013 page and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win one of four prizes for free advertising space on HealthyLivingBlogs.com! [Grand Prize: 1 year of ad space, 1 prize for 6 months ad space, and 2 prizes of 3 months of ad space.]
Don’t forget to share about why you like HLB and encourage your readers to visit our Members page to learn about joining in your post in your post. We love when you guys help us to spread the community love! I can’t wait to read all about what you have to say about HLB
