  • Chief Family Officer’s Third Anniversary Celebration: Giveaway #2 – $50 gift certificate

    A few months ago, I was lucky enough to win a gift certificate from Shoe Blitz. I have since fallen in love with and enjoy simply scrolling through the hundreds (thousands?) of shoes on their site and daydreaming about them.

    So I thought, why not spread the love? That’s why one lucky CFO reader will win a $50 gift certificate to (Gentlemen, feel free to enter on behalf of your lovely significant other.)

    To enter, simply leave a comment with an idea for CFO. For example, you can recommend a change you think would make the site better or suggest an idea for a future post.

    For an extra chance to win, subscribe to my feed via RSS or email and leave a separate comment telling me you have done so (or that you’re already subscribed).

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, June 10. I’ll use to generate a number that corresponds with the winning comment.

    The winner will be announced here on CFO. If I can easily locate the winner’s email address, I will also email the winner. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their gift certificate; otherwise a new winner will be randomly selected.

    One entry per type per person. This giveaway is open to everyone.

    Good luck!

      I think your site is great the way it is. Maybe just add a bit more color.


    2. Sara DMS says:

      I’m new to your blog and just added your feed. It was a two-step process, so maybe you could add the option of selecting the reader (My Yahoo, etc.) so it’s easier to add your feed.

      I hope I win — I’d love some new heels!

      Maybe a post on whether or not you have a ‘veg’ day and what you do, and a post about any changes made because of the cost of gas.

    4. I’d like to see more family recipes with pictures of how to make the dish.

    5. I agree with others about recipes, but I would add the caveat of having a budget and showing recipes to fit that budget for the week, since you are the CFO!

    6. Oh, and we have also added you to our feed reader here at!

      I think that your website is great. No changes needed.

    8. I’d like to see some more vibrant colors and more pictures.

    9. Great giveaway! Who can turn down a chance to win free shoes?!?! My suggestion would be to make your title grapic bigger to grab attention!

    10. Christine says:

      I think color would make things stand out more. The content is great!

    11. Miss Erica says:

      I think a larger banner and some more color would make your page pop more and be more noticeable. Also, I’d love to hear about how to go green when you don’t have a lot of money. Thanks for the great giveaway! Erica, gumbi1313 at msn dot com

    12. I like your site but I feel a little bombarded when I first see it. If you could move some of the ads and such down a little it would feel a little more simplistic and better to me. Thanks for the giveaway…I love that you have those!
