THANK YOU EVERYONE! We have reached our quota of 100 posts. We are reviewing current submissions to make sure they are qualified. You will be notified via email if you were one of the qualifying participants. Thanks for participating!
SocialMoms and Cottonelle have teamed up to introduce a fun, new blogging program that asks you to share little switches that make a difference. Even the best relationships can get a little stale, so Cottonelle brand wants to show how little switches can make all the difference in our lives and relationships. Adding back date night can spark up the romance in your relationship. What little switches would you like to make in your life? Small switches from your normal routine can make a huge difference. We’re looking forward to all your creative ideas and posts.
We're looking for quality over speed, so please read on.
Share your ideas for little switches that make a difference in a thoughtful, original essay post of at least 400 original words. We want to hear all about your little switches! Will you switch from watching TV with your husband on the family room sofa to going out for a movie and dinner date night once a month? How about switching from your usual ponytail to getting a nice hair style done every few months? Have you written cute love notes and put them in your husband’s lunch to surprise him during the day? Or maybe you will buy a sexy, new dress and surprise your husband with dance lessons for two to add some spice to your relationship?
How it works:
We are looking for one hundred creative, original and authentic submissions of high quality. Create an original post on your blog, in 400 words or more (using your own words), about little switches that make a difference. Include a thoughtful introduction, original content within the body of your post, and a conclusion. Check your spelling and grammar. You must also include the disclosure statement that is below in your post and install the campaign widget in the sidebar of your blog. Then follow the rest of the requirements below. We will review every post and select the first 100 qualifying submissions to receive a $25 Target gift card!
