Sometimes, I don't know how we keep on hanging on.
This month is crazy.
There is only one more day to it. 
Kaish doesn't think he is going to dress up this year. 
Have I ever told you that I hate that he is growing up?
It's true.
The days fly.
Sometimes words {that should not be said} fly.
There is stress and tears.
And happiness. 
And love.
Always love.

What could be better? 
Make the days count.

Hoodditt :: Valley Forge Casino Resort :: Win an Overnight Hotel Stay!

Hoodditt is a new website that advertises for small businesses for FREE! Hoodditt is similar to Groupon and in that it it will share deals daily with consumers.  Unlike Groupon, you will not receive daily email blasts. 

 Hoodditt focuses on your neighborhood.   Hoodditt is currently based in Philadelphia and serve the surrounding suburbs as well as New Jersey and Delaware.  

The difference between Hoodditt and Groupon is that Groupon charges each business a percentage of the package fee they offer. Many times businesses are resentful of this. Just recently I purchased a car detail from Groupon. I was excited about the great deal. When I called the owner of the car detailing business he told me that he was very discouraged because he was actually losing money on the deal he had put on Groupon. 
Hoodditt will offer great deals that the small business wants to share to the public.  Each small business will put together a deal that they feel good about and share it with the consumers who participate in Hoodditt. Consumers will pay .99 for the deal. The companies that advertise don't pay a penny.

Valley Forge Casino and Resort is one of the premier Hoodditt vendors. Valley Forge Casino and Resort is giving away a hotel stay to one of the readers of this blog! I am so excited to have a fantastically fun giveaway like this on my blog. 
This would be a wonderful venue to get the word out about your small business even if you don't live in the Philadelphia area. If you have an online business, advertising on Hoodditt is free and can get the name of your business out into the public. I am excited to reach out to all of my friends that sell on Etsy and Ebay
As a customer, Hoodditt might be perfect for you. You have the power to select what offers you want to be emailed or texted. You will control what you want to receive or none at all. You can also search businesses and follow your favorites so that you will be alerted when your favorite business posts an offer. This offer from Gloss Salon of Newark, Delaware is a fabulous one. 

Please head over to Hoodditt and sign up. If you have a small business and you would like to sign up as a small business owner, please use the word Kaishon as your referral. 

There will be one winner selected to have an  overnight stay at the Valley Forge Casino.  Winner will be selected in one week. 

Hoodditt is on facebook
