Exclusive for Followers

I’m going to be rewarding my newsletter followers with exclusive freebies just for them!! This is something that I’ve wanted to do for awhile and I’ve finally gotten ready to implement it, so I’m really excited to tell you all about how to get exclusive freebies.

The best way to keep up with The Treasured Schoolhouse is to sign-up for the newsletter.  That way, you’ll know every time I post to my blog.  You won’t be spammed or anything else.  You’ll just simply receive an excerpt of the post and you can click on the link to come back to the blog to finish reading it.  Best of all, you only receive the newsletter when I post something….and not for anything else!!

So now onto the exclusive offer for followers of the newsletter.  YAY!!  If you sign-up to receive the newsletter to The Treasured Schoolhouse, you’ll receive a password the next time I post to a freebie.  To access the freebie, you’ll be able to click on the link in the newsletter or you can come here to the blog and click on the “For Subscribers” tab.  You’ll have to input the password, which will give you access to any freebies that are on the page.  Sometimes they will be forever free and sometimes they’ll be free for a certain amount of time.  

My goal is to offer a new freebie at least once a month.  I can’t promise that though, so we’re going to say a new one will be posted as often as possible.  I don’t want to disappoint anyone or break a promise, so for now,  that’s what we’re going with!!  You never know though, so you’ll want to check back, as there won’t be a notice when a new freebie is listed.  I plan on having the freebies that I list be both Christian and educational so that I can cover both of my types of followers.

Also, the password will change often, so you’ll want to check with the newsletter to make sure you have the newest password.  You don’t want to lose access to the “For Subscribers” page to grab the freebies!!

If this sounds good to you, please just sign-up to receive the newsletter.  If you don’t already subscribe, you can enter your information on the sign-up form over in the right hand column of this blog.  If you already do subscribe, then the password will be included in the next newsletter!!

Almost to 100

I’m very happy to say that I’m almost at 100 followers at my store on TPT!!

100

I’m so close in fact, that I’m just 2 followers away!!  Can you believe it??  It’s been a long road and I’m happy with the way things have developed for me.  It’s been a great learning process and I know that there’s more to come.

I have several things planned for when I do hit that big personal milestone.  I’ll be holding a giveaway here on the blog.  There will be 3 great prizes available!!  I’ll also be uploading some new products to my store just for this, holding a sale in my store, and more!!  Oh, one of the “more” things will be that I hold “flash freebies” for some of my products and you can find out when I set the up by following me on Facebook.  You can do that if you click here.

So, stay tuned and if you love The Schoolhouse, let your friends and family know!!

 

Currently: June

Well, this is my first time linking up with “Currently”. I’ve seen them on other blogs, but never done it, so here goes my first time….

Currenty - June1

 

As you can tell, I’m obsessed with CSI right now.  I’ve loved that show since day 1 and still do.  Thank goodness I own the DVD’s so I’ll never really be without it.  At least Grissom will be back, and Catherine too.  Hoping that Nick and Brass both make an appearance to make it complete.  

Are any of you fans too??  If so, what do you think will happen to reunite the cast??  I’m hoping for Sqweegel because it’s a weird case that was never solved.

Please click the button below to check out the link-up and her great cause this month….

Newsletter

I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I promise that I have several free printables coming your way.  They just need tweaks done to them.  Then you’ll be able to have access to my latest printables!!

MC_MonkeyReward_05I want to let all my readers, and especially my followers (by e-mail) know that I’ve changed clients.  If you currently follow me via e-mail, you’ll have to re-sign up to get my newsletter.  I’m no longer using the one that comes with WordPress and have switched over to MailChimp.  

I’m sorry for any inconvenience that this might cause.  However, it’s my hope that this will make it easier for everyone to keep up.  The new newsletter is set to be released every evening at 6pm on any day that there’s a new post.  I was going to go for a weekly newsletter, but I figured that I don’t post that often, so daily (or whenever I post) will work for everyone.  Also, the newsletter will just be a snippet view, so you’ll have to click on the article to read it in full.

Please sign up for my new MailChimp newsletter updates to follow my blog via e-mail by using the form in the right hand column to “subscribe”.  I appreciate it and look forward to you following along!!

If you have any questions, problems, or comments, please leave me a comment or use the “contact” button in the right hand column.  I love to hear from my readers and followers!!

Seuss-icle Problem

Well, there’s a problem here at The Schoolhouse.  I have files ready to be uploaded to 4Shared to share and post for my followers contest.  However, 4Shared isn’t cooperating and I can’t upload a single file.  I’ve tried via the web and desktop.  So now I’m in a bind and I have nothing to share for my first day of the contest. 

Please be patient and I’ll keep trying as the day goes on.  I’ll even put them on a memory stick and try from my daughters computer.  If nothing works, I’ll try each and every day and share more than one thing at a time if I have to.  But mind you, there will be plenty of freebies one way or the other!!

Now, read that top post and follow my blog and/or Facebook page, then leave a comment for each way that you put the word out about the contest for your entry to win the TPT gift certificate!!


Seuss-icle Followers Contest

I’m having a Seuss-icle Followers Contest here on The Schoolhouse starting 25 February!!  Please read on to learn how you can enter and win a great prize on 3 March!!

I’m trying very hard to get back into creating new educational and Christian printables and blogging about them to get them out there to the kids.  The only way I can do that is to reach the parents, teachers, daycare providers, and those that work with or spend time with the children.  To do this, I’m holding a special contest right here on The Schoolhouse to boost my followers!!

My goals are simple…..

  • I’d like to reach 50 followers on my blog and I currently have 28. 
  • I’d like to reach 30 followers on my Facebook page and I currently have 13.

How can you help….and win??  That’s the easy part!!  To enter the contest from 25 February to 3 March, just choose one or all of these possible entries….

  • Talk about my contest on your blog and/or Facebook page, then leave me a comment HERE about each way you got the word out.  This can be up to 2 entries!!
  • If you don’t currently follow my blog and/or Facebook page, start following (via feed or e-mail) me and leave me a comment HERE letting me know how you are now following me.  (If you currently follow me, you qualify too….just comment and let me know!!)  This can be up to 2 entries!!
  • Pin my contest to one of your Pinterest boards and leave me a comment HERE letting me know you’ve done this.  This is 1 entry!!
  • Tweet about the contest on Twitter and leave a comment HERE letting me know that you tweeted.  This is 1 entry!!
  • Refer someone to follow me on my blog and/or Facebook page and have them leave me a comment HERE.  This is up to 2 entries….and the person you refer is then entered as well!!

That’s up to 8 chances for you to enter your name into the drawing to win the prize!!  You can find the “like” button to my Facebook page in the column on the right.  What’s the prize you ask??  Well, it’s a $10 gift certificate to Teachers Pay Teachers and ONE name will be drawn from the comments (which I’ll number) and let Random.org choose.  I’ll announce the winner at 8pm (CST) on 3 March.

I should add that everyday, or at least to the best of my abilities, I’ll be offering at least one Dr. Seuss themed printable.  Some will be “old”, but there’s many that haven’t seen them and many will be newly created materials.  So please, be sure to check back often to see what I’m sharing!!

Now’s the time….please grab, pin, post, or share the button below and help me get my printables out there to the kids…..and get entered for your chance to win that prize!!
