It’s Party Time! Blis Giveaway (worth $125)

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Thanks for coming, sit a spell and I’ll whip up one of my famous Chocolate Pound Cakes for y’all!

It’s that time again! I totally spaced last year, and missed UBP9. Well I didn’t space, I was working on a new blog and thought it wasn’t a good time to get traffic to one that was about to be obsolete, kwim? Now that I think of it, so much has happened in the last year. I fell in love, got married went from a family of 4 , 1 dog and 1 cat, to a family of 7 with 4 dogs and 1 cat. Warmer weather is coming up, and as long as there are no more injuries, sickies or who knows what else, we will be spending a lot of time at the lake and the river here soon.


You can read more about me under the About page at the top. I will soon have a monthly “column” at Sensational Divas Review and will be blogging a little more at Eat Sweat Lose.

It’s Giveaway Time!

Now on for the giveaway! I know that’s why you are here, that’s ok I still love you. Over the last couple months I’ve talked to the creators of Blis (Best life information system) about doing a review and giveaway. Life, specifically wedding, interrupted. So here we are with a fabulous offer!

I have been searching for an electronic Control Journal/Household Planner for years. Let me tell you, there’s just not anything out there that puts everything together on one page….until now! Blis has it all! I can access it from anywhere, it doesn’t need to be loaded to one computer…I can login from my phone! and there is a print version! How about that!

Just because I think you should know, here are some details:

  • Full Calendar with Day, Week + Month Views
  • Email Reminders
  • Create, Edit + Save To Do Lists
  • Plan + Save Vacation Details
  • Plan + Save Party Details
  • Easily Link To Websites
  • Menu Planning + Grocery Lists
  • Electronic Recipe Box Storage
  • Track Online Purchases
  • List Gifts To Purchase
  • Organize Household Contact Information
  • List Emergency Information
  • Record Home Inventory Room By Room
  • Maintain Household Appliance Records
  • Record Home Updates + Repair Information
  • List Service Provider Information
  • List Service Provider Information
  • Track Warranty Expirations + Household Safety Checks
  • Track Automobile Information + Records
  • Organize Account Records
  • Organize Medical Records For Each Family Member
  • Track Medical Histories
  • List Favorite Restaurants, Favorite Websites + Books To Read
  • Child Care Worksheets

  • Detailed Address Book
  • Multi-User Friendly + Remote Access
  • Multi-Home Record Keeping Ability
  • Import Contacts from Outlook & iAddress Book
  • Export Calendar events and contacts to Outlook & iCal
  • Can you believe that everything is packed into one place? I sure couldn’t, so yep I tried it out. Unlimited to-do lists would allow me to set up all of those holiday routines that I always have to dig up from the pit of despair. What I really love about this system, is that two sisters created it out of need. They are mom’s and needed a way to keep up with work, homes, kids and everything else that comes along with life. These ladies are the best, so professional, yet personable just like Blis.


    The ladies at Blis have offered us here at Polka Spot Farm a certificate for one of our readers to enjoy Blis for 1 whole year! That’s $125.00 value! To win this is what you need to do:

    • Comment with your top reason of needing and electronic home planner (1 entry)

    • For extra entries you can follow me (by mail, in your reader, Google Friend Connect, Facebook Fan page or Networked Blogs) each one earns 1 additional entry

    Giveaway will be closed at Midnight CST on April 16th. I will announce the winner on April 17th.

    Be sure to tell your family and friends about the great giveaway too! I hope that I see y’all soon!

    22. Hi Christi!

      You had me at "Chocolate Pound Cake" 😉 I love your personality it shines through your words here. I found myself smiling as I read through some of your posts.
      I am part of a family of 7, 2 dogs, 1 cat… I too was a single mom for my 3 kids for quite awhile too.

      Congratulations on your marriage, however, I am so sorry to hear about your husband and his injury/illness. I do hope things are getting better. I've had kidney stones – so not fun!! I'd rather go through labor again then go through that.

      I so appreciate the time you took to bop on over to my place for the #UBP10
      Okay, I am a organizational freak – the giveaway of Blis – leaves me in Bliss!! Oh My what a wonderful giveaway….

      Okay gonna follow the instructions for the giveaway – thank you for this amazing opportunity 🙂
      Take good care of you and yours…

    23. Oh why do I need such an organizer…..
      5 teenagers and twenty somethings and ALL of their schedules
      1 husband who is a volunteer fireman, a trustee and part of numerous committees – which means all sorts of dinners, meetings, drills, etc
      I work full time as a Marketing/Business Development/Proposal Manager – which means DEADLINES DEADLINES DEADLINES and meetings, meet and greets etc..
      Running a home of 7 – a blended family to boot – CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY!

      To be able to access this from a computer (any) computer and/or my phone sounds like a dream to me….

    24. I follow your blog through Google Friend Connect 🙂

    25. I am a FAN of your Facebook FAN page 🙂 (C. Nelson – my maiden name)

    26. Stephanie says:

    29. Your blog is adorable! Nice to meet you and feel free to visit my blog too!

    30. I am a substitute teacher (full time), mom to two very active girls (13 and 8), and I also work two part time jobs at home. So I need something to keep me organized. Thanks to my disorganization we missed our Corgi puppy's first obedience class today. Thankfully, I called Petsmart to double check the time and found out we were 4 hours late – instead of walking in expecting to begin class.

    31. I have recently learned, the hard way, that keeping *everything* in my Blackberry is all fine and dandy until it crashes. 🙁 Having something like this online, that I could access from home OR my BB….. well, that sounds perfect to me!

      I came by from the UBP~~ my party post is up HERE.  I hope you'll drop by and say hello!

    32. I have 3 kids, sports teams, 2 different schools, 3 jobs, etc to organize! All help is welcome!

    33. Hi there! Just popping in from the UBP to be your newest Google Follower! Hooray! Hope you have a great week! Swing by my blog when you get a chance!

    34. Thanks for the neat giveaway. I've never heard of this before and can definitely see how it would be a HUGE help! I work from home for one company and my husband and I just started our own small business. There are always a ton of things to keep in order for that, along with everything for my full-time job, and our new home. Thanks again for the fun giveaway. I'm planning on looking around more after I finish this comment.

    35. I need help organizing documents and addresses !
      New from the UPB !

    40. Oooh, I need this because I'm a full time working mom of a 1-year-old and expecting another kiddo on June 30th. I'm hoping to be a mostly SAHM/WAHM after this baby comes and I need help getting things in order before he arrives and then get things together so taht I can still make an income and not freak out after he arrives! Pick me!

      BTW, I found you through the blog party and can't wait to get through your blog! I write about natural parenting and living and am working on an "Organize my house!" blog challenge, so I'm excited to read your writings. 🙂

    41. I have a really crazy life… 4 kids, 1 with a disability, multiple family /children events/ Firefighter and Truck driver Hubby. I think this system would be great for my computer because so many times I am overbooking myself. I have a "control journal" but more often than not I am not opening it to see what I need to do for that day and often get side tracked and not working on the tasks that need done. It would be really nice to have a program as this is so that I can organize my life better!

    46. Hi! I was here earlier in the week, but I don't know if I clicked through the UBP or not, so I'm back again, so it'll "count". Anyway, love your giveaway! Who doesn't need more organization?! I have a notebook, which is my brain, but my husband would love it if I would use the computer more for organization, and record-keeping, so this would make him happy, I think! Thanks!
