Life Your Way launched on Labor Day of last year, and as we celebrate our one-year anniversary today (I know, I know…365 days is actually tomorrow, but today is Labor Day!), I’m excited to share some recent site updates with you as well as announce a fun scavenger hunt with lots of chances to win!
I’ve been working on updating much of the site throughout the summer, and you may have noticed some of these changes:
- New & Improved Galleries: Watch for our new galleries later this week, which will feature a dynamic slider and more information about each of the recipes/products/links featured!
- Plan to Eat…Your Way: I’m so excited about this latest addition to the site. You can now log into your Plan to Eat account right from Life Your Way. When you do, you’ll gain access to more than 6,000 recipes that have been shared by other Life Your Way readers, putting mealtime inspiration right at your fingertips!
- New Fat Footer: At the bottom of each site is a new “fat footer” that includes information about Life Your Way for visitors as well as links to our social media profiles and an RSS feed with the latest Amazon.com deals from our sister site, Jungle Deals & Steals.
- Updated Printables: Last week I released the updated set of Life Your Way printables, and I cleaned up the printables listing as well to make it easier for you to find the ones you’re looking for.
- This and That: I’ve also been cleaning up broken links, updating old posts and other less glamorous updates!
In addition, there are still a couple of projects on my to-do list for this month:
- Dropdown Menus: Within the next week or two, I hope to roll out dropdown menus that make it easier for you to go directly to a category or series that you’re looking for.
- Quick Tips: Some quick tips just seem too quick for an entire post, but even the simplest tip can often have a big impact on our lives, so I’ll be adding a quick tips widget to each channel’s sidebar to share little tips and tricks with you in addition to the things we post.
Overall, my goal is for Life Your Way to continue to be a clean, simple site that gives you quick & easy access to the content and resources you’re looking for!
As always, I welcome your feedback about the site and our content!
Now, onto the good stuff!
To celebrate our one-year anniversary and some of the changes we’re making to the site, we’re hosting the ultimate scavenger hunt!
Every day, I’ll hide 10 codes throughout the site that look like this (look for new ones around 8 a.m. ET each day):
Just copy the code and click Enter to Win to submit your entry.
(Psst, go ahead and try with the code above; it’s a real one!)
Each day this week we’re giving away:
- (5) $5 Amazon.com gift cards
- (3) Life Your Way Printables download packs
- (2) copies of How to Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too
And at the end of the week, two lucky readers will each win a $50 Amazon.com gift card!
You’ll find codes hidden in the footer and sidebar of each channel as well as on static pages across the site. Don’t worry — there won’t be any hidden in individual posts, since it would be almost impossible for you to sort through all of the old posts.
I’ll be giving hints on Facebook as well, so be sure to “like” Life Your Way so you don’t miss those!
Each code you enter gives you one daily entry (for that day’s giveaways) and one weekly entry. Comments left on Facebook, posts, etc. do not count as entries. The scavenger hunt runs through midnight PT on Friday, 9/9, and we’ll announce winners on Saturday, 9/10.
