Happy New Year Moosers!
These are the first words of 2011 on Bargainmoose. I hope you had a good night last night, and brought the new year in with some fun. I didn't do anything as I wasn't feeling very well, but I made sure to get a kiss at midnight :)
During 2010, we've had some memorable moments here on Bargainmoose. Here's a quick recap:
One of the most memorable things for me was the addition of Avigayil as a new writer on Bargainmoose. She's got a nose for a hot deal, and shares the best bargains with you every day. Every month, she and I are bringing you more and more deals, with 300 separate offers in December 2010 having been the busiest month ever. And we'll hopefully be adding more authors soon, and bringing you even more good deals!
These deals are still ongoing, but Avigayil and I have been covering as much of the good boxing day sales as possible. We hope you've been getting some great bargains!
I've done quite a few giveaways on Bargainmoose over the year, with the most popular being the iPad contest. I hope to have many more cool contests for you guys in 2011! If any Canadian merchants are reading this and want to donate a prize to my Moosers, just drop me a line.
We also introduced advertising on Bargainmoose, in the form of the exclusive Mooser coupons over in the sidebar to the right. I personally don't like getting hit in the face with giant ads when I am browsing websites, so I hope that our ads are useful but unobtrusive. Again, if any Canadian store are reading this and want to advertise here, drop me a line.
In the next few months, you might be seeing some changes on Bargainmoose. I'm not going to give everything away, but I will ease you into it very gently with the introduction of user profiles in the next few months. It simply means you will be able to sign in to Bargainmoose with your username, choose an avatar, track your posts of interest and comments, etc. That will be the first step... then we'll see what new features we can introduce throughout the year. For the past two and a half years, we've just been a simple blog format, so I hope to move away from that eventually.
Now, over to you guys who actually read this far down the page - is there anything you would like to see on Bargainmoose in the coming year? Give me ideas in the comments below please.
Thanks MJ Cobweb!
