I set up a blog for my mom this morning. She’s a super fast learner and is ridiculously excited to be keeping in touch with everyone about news via this new mode of communication. It’s easier than writing a million emails, and so it’ll be really easy for her to inform people of her advances over the coming months.
She is also ridiculously excited about the blog because she thinks she’s the cutest woman in the world and she has (I admit) maybe the cutest header in the world. Forget puppies and kittens; my mom sitting in a pumpkin patch on a Vermont fall day takes the cake.
In any case, we both need your help. For whole minutes we sat stumped about a good tag line. Here were our thoughts so far, the first two from my mom:
- “Do your best, angels can do no more.”
- “The more the merrier.”
When she said she thought about those two taglines because they’re things she says a lot, I thought she could try one of these:
- “Gina, there’s lots of things in life you’re not gonna wanna do but you’re gonna have to do them anyway.”
- “Clean your room.”
- “Shut up. Just shut up.”
- “I’m so cute.” (Students, you understand where I get my sense of humility.)
So clearly we’re stuck.
And this stuck-ness is really good for starting a contest. Necessity is the mother of invention and we need your help. We need a tagline, pronto. And the winner (or winners) will receive something from Brazil (from me) and something from Vermont (from my mom), a symbolic dual care package from me and my mom in gratitude for your wordly-wisdom. She doesn’t know about this prize but she’ll love it because I know my mom and she loves prizes.
What do you think?
But first, don’t leave comments on her blog because she’s got nothing written yet. Just her little cutey face and a bunch of pumpkins. So go ahead and leave your suggestions here on this blog.
Second, my good friend Nate at Tell Him Fred said he’d donate his time to make a beautiful button for this blog to link over to my mom’s blog, so you can always get there from here to check in on her progress.
Third, when her blog is finally up and running, spread the word. Whether it becomes the tagline or not, the point really is “the more the merrier” for this team.
Fourth, seriously. Did you see her header? So cute my cheeks hurt from smiling.
EDIT: Contest Deadline is Friday, May 2
