Chomp and Clack Alligator Wooden Push Toy by Melissa & Doug Giveaway & Review


I am so excited to be sharing with you all this cool product toy with you all that my youngest child has loved to play with!  The Chomp and Clack Alligator Wooden Push Toy by Melissa & Doug is a wooden toddler toy that my 2 year old has enjoyed playing with. Although Baby K has enjoyed using it more to chomp our feet than just listen to the cute clanking of the alligators that chomp down as you push the wooden toy forward.

This Chomp and Clack Alligator Wooden Push Toy is one of many wooden toys our family has had fun with. I think that wooden toys make you feel like back in the good old days of childhood when toys were hand made in a way or appeared to be. I think that is what appeals to me most about giving my children wooden toys, they always look so home made and seem to last a real long time. I love the colorful alligators on this toy and am excited to say that Baby K has yet to stop playing with it.  Just the other night Baby K was pushing the Chomp and Clack Alligator across our kitchen floor while I was cooking dinner, smiling the whole time, although he calls the alligators crocodiles, he enjoys his new toy that sissy and brother leave alone.

Need Traffic Analysis Tools First & Foremost

Regardless of whether you plan to run a social media campaign or work on techniques to build your website/blog you will need to ensure you first install a program like Google Analytics to track where all your traffic is coming from. If you go and hire a social media consultant or virtual assistant to help you in your website goals you will want to have a way to keep goals in mind and be able to see if the assistant has attained those goals for you.

A friend of mine told me that you should have a vision for where you want your site to be in about six months. From there you can work with your virtual assistant or social media consultant to determine what best marketing efforts will work for your goals. Make sure when are setting goals that they are attainable. For instance, if I were to say I want Happily Blended’s traffic to increase by 100% in six months, well that is realistic but there are some other high end numbers that may not make sense for my blog and the various niches my blog covers. I am not a one niche blog which makes targeting a specific audience a bit more challenging.

I have been able to implement strategies on my blog to increase traffic and some tools I use are Digg, StumbleUpon and Entrecard. All three tools have been able to not only increase online visibility of my blog but have increased comments. I love getting comments because that gives me more people to go visit daily or weekly, whichever I end up having time for.  A great way for business websites to increase their online visibility would be through text link ads, blog campaigns and SEO key word articles on various blogs.

No matter what you are planning to do or what your goals are for the next six months make sure that you are working with someone who can see your vision, work hard to make your vision a reality and be sure to track what they are doing with weekly meetings to go over the Google Analytics so that you both understand where the site is standing each week.

Magical things happen in Whispering Willows… if you believe in yourself!
