I am pleased to announce my ticket sponsor to the Type A Parent Conference is New Blog Hosting. New Blog Hosting offers affordable blog hosting and also blog design. I am excited to be helping represent this company for a number of reasons:
In discussing how we would work together and what his goals were Peter said the following in an email to me: “helping people is more important than making money.” Obviously, everyone wants to make money but he really wants to go to this conference to share his expertise and knowledge with others. That is the kind of business owner he is and those are the kind of people that I like to work with.
Another thing I love about New Blog Hosting is that $15 of every hosting package bought goes to Charity. Peter and his family are saving money to buy a well for people in Africa. I wrote about this cause back in March because it’s important to me, too!
So he likes to help others and money goes to charity…but what about the hosting? you may ask. For $35 per year you get reliable hosting. He will even help with data transfer if you already have a blog and need help moving it. I have never transferred my site but I have heard horror stories about lost data. I couldn’t imagine posts I’ve lovingly written gone because I attempted to do things myself.
Will you be at the Type A Conference next weekend?
If so, watch for tweets from me to find out where I am throughout the conference. Exchange business cards with me and have the chance to win either a year of hosting from New Blog Hosting or a Starbuck’s gift card! I also may have an extra treat to share with you but you’ll just have to wait to see what it is ;)
