I found a contest that is essentially what my blog is about!
Let me tell you about the Simplify My Life Sweepstakes , presented by the Mom Bloggers Club.
To win the beauty pictured below, an HP Mini 110 with Windows 7, by Studio Tord Boontje, I'm going to tell you how this gorgeous piece of machinery will help simplify my life.
My blog is named A Simple Kinda Life, based on the song by No Doubt. I love that song and I love the concept. Here's why:
My life is hectic enough - I work full time as a secretary on an Army base, and I'm a single mom with a slim support system. I'm up at 4:30 am to be to work by 6:30 am, because sometimes I'll be behind the slowest driver in Maryland. (I swear!) I get home by 5:30 pm, and when I get home my day is not even close to being done! I have to help my children with homework, cook dinner, do laundry or whatever else needs to be done, then try to get on the computer to blog or talk to my friends on Twitter or Facebook. Sometimes I'm up way past my bedtime, which ideally should be 8 pm. I usually don't get there until 11 pm, and I spend alot of time tired!
If I was to win this gorgeous, portable Mini, my life would change so dramatically! I could take it to work with me and be able to access the sites I can't access on the Army network (blogs mainly!), during my lunch, and be more productive.
I could Tweet and Facebook and play Mafia Wars all in the comfort of my nice warm bed instead of from that stationary desk in my living room.
I could take it to BlogHer 2010, since I'm hoping to go this year! I could take it wherever else I decide to go, and not have to worry about coming home to over 500 emails! I would also be more stylish than normal with this beauty in my bag, or at my side! Plus, look how thin it is:
The best reason that I want to win this netbook is because my main computer died on me two days ago and I can't figure out what's wrong with it! I'M HAVING INTERNET WITHDRAWALS!!! I have to use the internet at work more than usual, and this might turn out badly!
I'm all about the Simple Life and this HP Mini would help me be closer to that goal, by being able to network wherever I want, take online classes, and I might even share with the kiddos!
If you want to try to win one of these computers, there are also 3 being given away to people who comment on the entrants' sweepstake posts! So comment away friends!
