This monthly wrap-up will help you find some of the best stuff I’ve blogged about in the past month as well as thank my readers and fellow bloggers who are helping my blog grow.

On October 21 Freebies 4 Mom turned one year old and I could not have received a better birthday present than appearing on Inside Edition the day after. I’m excited to have so many new readers, and also a little overwhelmed. I’m definitely having some growing pains as I learn how to work smarter so that I can respond to your questions and find out what I can learn from you. I’ve got several giveaways planned for the next few weeks. I had to put some giveaways on hold just because I’ve been swamped and couldn’t keep up with them. So I’m taking a breather and will announce new giveaways next week – several will be one-day giveaways.

Favorite resource:
Maran Illustrated free eBooks
These are in-depth eBooks on numerous topics and include great color illustrations. If you are starting a new hobby, these would be great to check-out.

Favorite free sample: Nature’s Bounty Tote Bag
My favorite free sample this month is one that I got in my mailbox, Christina shared it with you here in September. It’s a small reusable tote bag and would make a great lunch sack alternative or a handy gift bag. It came with a $1 coupon for Nature’s Bounty products.

Favorite post: Try Me Free
I spent a lot of time on this post to make it a good resource for you so that you can pick up a few “free after rebate” products at the grocery store. Utilizing rebates is a great way to try new products for free, and sometimes even get paid a little if you use a coupon.

A big thank you to my 6,548 daily readers this month. That’s the average number of unique visitors I received each day over the entire month of October.

A big thank you also to the blogs who wanted to share Freebies 4 Mom with their readers. Here are my top 10 referring blogs. I recommend you visit each of them when you have a chance!
