Sponsors + Giveaway

This year has been a fun one for the blog.
It's been a year of change and growth for our family as well as the blog.

I'm excited for what the new year brings.
Especially in regards to the blog.
I'm working with Molly to switch some things around for the new year.
And definitely praying about the direction the blog will go this next year.
Lots of ideas and different collaberations in the works that I can't wait to share with you!

Over this past year I have been so blessed by my sponsors who have joined up with me.
I am thankful for each one of you and the blessing that you have been to me.

If you have been considering sponsoring The Vanilla Tulip
I would encourage you to get signed up for the New Year.
I am excited to help promote your blog/shop!

I have created several different ad options.
Three for the side bar and then a new ad option that will appear at the bottom of my posts.
I have also added the option of purchasing three months at a time for a discounted price.
This is a great deal because it also locks in your price as the cost of ads
will most likely increase as the blog continues to grow.

Here are a few recent stats:

*over 150,000 page views last month
*1200+ Twitter Followers
*1100+ GFC Followers
