***CONGRATULATIONS, Helen (non-blogger) !!!***
her comment... I love the Jackson's Leaf I necklace!
I already told you about Katja's good luck with Tom Cruise and Oprah. Well, being the energetic and sweet person that she is, the whole experience spurred her to start a new venture, one that would benefit not only her store (the wonderful Skimbaco), but the whole mompreneur/blogging community. In honor of her luck with Suri's shoes, she's named her new enterprise LadyBug Landings.
Katja envisions LadyBug Landings as a PR service and networking tool for "LadyBosses and LadyBloggers" to come together. (Did I mention she was bitten by ladybug luck only a month ago and already gotten this rolling? Plus she has an online boutique and three kids? She is awesome.) The website features case studies of actual independent retailers to show how LadyBosses can grow their own businesses more successfully. I am personally intrigued by Katja's other main goal for LadyBug Landings: to help bloggers increase their traffic and monetize their blogs. I haven't yet committed to advertising on my blog but I am so curious about how I could make it pay for itself someday.
Katja has already started thinking up new ways for bloggers to make some money. If you're a blogger, you can check into putting an affiliate button on your site for LadyBug Landings merchandise. (See that? If you click on that link and buy something, I'll get some $. Woo!) I recommend this cute shirt:
Now that you've learned all about LadyBug Landings, let's talk some more about Tom and Suri again. Along with the fabulous ladybug maryjanes, the Cruise family received other goodies from Skimbaco. My favorites were some personalized goodies by Blume. Hats, tees, underpants… you name it, and Blume literally names it. No matter how funny your name or slogan is. Katja, being her naturally generous self, has offered a giveaway for my readers. I am partial to these red boxer briefs, which Tom Cruise received emblazoned with "Kate":
