September 2015 Simplify Campaign


We are SO thrilled to announce this month’s theme: SIMPLIFY and most of all, to introduce you to our sponsor, Komae, a babysitting app that will help you get FREE babysitting.

—-cue record screech—-

What?! You read that right.

Two fabulous (and brilliant) mamas, Audrey and Amy from Akron, Ohio, have a Kickstarter campaign beginning on Sept. 14 and it is our job to help them spread the word!

Let’s talk campaign details…

The theme is “Simplify.”  Now this doesn’t mean the title to your post should be “Simplify” or even have the word “Simplify” in it. (I mean how crazy would it look if we had 13 posts with the same title?!)  We want YOUR spin on it.

Essays, recipes, tips and activities. We want to make our readers’ lives a little easier, lighter, and more inspired now that school is getting started. These ideas are just the tip of the iceberg. The interpretations of this word / concept are endless, and we can’t wait to see your creative ideas!
