Happy Summer! I am so happy to be part of the Summer Blog Tour! Thanks Abbey {Living my MoMent} and Holly {The Work at Home Woman} for putting this together! I’ve been having a ton of fun from the get go! And, of course, thanks to everyone for stopping by today!

My name is Dawn, and I’m the mommy behind Market Mommy! I have a wonderful hubby, two terrific preschoolers and we live in rural Ohio. My background is in marketing /communications and in 2007 I launched Announcements Galore, an online shop that sells photo cards, photo magnets and keepsake photo collages. I started Market Mommy in hopes of utilizing my marketing skills to help other mom entrepreneurs market their businesses.

I’m very proud and honored that Holly and Abbey came to me when they were first preparing for the Tour and asked me to design the tour’s button ad. I’m pretty thrilled with how it turned out and super excited to see it plastered all over the blogosphere! Button ad design is just one of the MANY marketing services that Market Mommy offers! If you are having a special event or promotion on your blog, or just need a new, updated button or banner, I’d love to help you out. Our prices are very reasonable!

I’m very excited to tell you that Market Mommy will turn 1 next week! MarketMommy.com was launched June 1, 2009 and this blog shortly followed. I, personally, have had so much fun over the past year. I’ve met some FANTASTIC women, gained some great friendships, learned a lot about myself and even made a little money :)

To celebrate, we are having a First Birthday Extravaganza the entire month of June! There will be a full month of guest blog posts here on the blog. The schedule we have lined up is truly awesome! There will be some fun giveaways! And, best of all, there will be a large marketing prize package given away to one lucky mom business owner! It is valued at over $2600! So, mark your calendars and be sure to stop back next week!

Ok, now for the giveaway! I’m giving away winner's choice of a $25 gift certificate to Announcements Galore or Market Mommy. It can be used on any goods or services from either site. For your first entry, simply comment here and introduce yourself!
