Atlas of My World

Atlas of My World

Well, I got an email giving me the opportunity to offer a 50% discount for the National Geographic Kids' Atlas of My World. I don't have a copy myself, but it does look fun. I'm a sucker for a nice atlas. My own dad filled our house with atlases, and I remember looking at pictures, reading charts, comparing facts, and of course, finding myself on the map. Although this stuff is now easy to do online, there is a certain romantic attachment to a real atlas, that you can't find on the Internet.

If you go to the site, you'll see your kid will be able to personalize a part of the atlas with a picture and with a few other details.

If this looks like something you might be interested in, use the code bf50gift to get 50% discount plus free shipping by December 1st.

The code changes after that, and from December 2nd to the 8th, use gift25bf to get the atlas with a %25 discount and free shipping.

(Who would have thought the plural of atlas is atlases? Sometimes things are simple after all.)

Just one more thing. National Geographic Kids asked me to put links to their Twitter and Facebook pages, and to encourage people to Follow and Like, so head over there too.

Vote! Vote! Vote! (for this blog)

Think voting for your favorite former-witch was fun? Try voting for this blog! Now THAT'S fun.

The Baltimore Sun has collected some of the best blogs/Facebook pages/Twitter accounts in Maryland, and now you can tell them which one is your favorite. There are different categories, so you can vote for I-Don't-Care-What in the Sports category, and then you can vote for your favorite Maryland Health blog, and then, most importantly(!), vote for this blog every day. EVERY DAY.

I mean, you don't have to vote every day, but it'll make me happy if you do, so make your own decisions. You're the one who has to live with yourself for the rest of your life, knowing full well that another blog, an equally good or even better one, has won the award because you had better things to do.

Other than that, I just want to simply thank the Sun for including this blog, and for giving me and other blogs some small exposure.
