Seasonal Babysitters Club covers are the best way to celebrate any holiday or change of season. Print this out on a sweatshirt and wear it while sipping your pumpkin-flavored whatever.

Wow, I wish I had known about this before! Please tell me I’m not the only person in the search marketing industry who read every Babysitters Club book. (Then sold the whole collection at a garage sale for less than $20, sob.)

I am going to pay close attention to the information you posted about squeeze pages. I have not been using them like I should. This article has motivated me to just stop, and take a good look at the way i have been doing some things. I have been trying to take the short cuts.Thanks for the article. Great information.

I read the "Baby Sitter's Little Sister" series. What a tongue-tier! I guess I wasn't cool enough for the real thing. I preferred the Boxcar Children anyway.
