Happy First Birthday to The Guidebook!!

It's been a wonderful wowser of a year! To think that just over a year ago we were having a phone conversation about this little idea that Sarah had to create a "phone book" for bloggers. The blog should be friendly, inviting, and play to our interests, rather than be a cold, sterile database. And what a "big idea" that became! Just look what it's become—all because of our amazing readers!! 

We wanted to reward you all for a year of support and readership by hosting 30 Days of Giveaways! 

We decided to create a separate blog called 30 Days of Giveaways, where we can host all the amazing giveaway items so you can jump to them easily. How it will work: You may go to our giveaway site and sign up one time to win many of the items, OR you can take more time to browse and leave comments on some of the other things. Then, each day in June, we will announce the winner of the day here on The Blog Guidebook. Check out 30 Days of Giveaways now for all the details!

Today you can win our Study Guide and Blog Activities PDF download.
Win a deal from Heartsy tomorrow!
Sign up on our mailing list to get more info on all 30 Days of Giveaways! If you're on the mailing list you are eligible to win a secret prize!
