Tag Lines. Everybody Needs One. And $20.


Hello Ladies.

It's me, Tiffany {aka one of the Original SITS Girls and The R Family freak.}

{Hijack here from Angie: AND one of my all time favorite bloggers}.

I am here hijacking Angie's place.

Can I just say for the record that I LOVE her hair.

Just wanted to get that off my chest.

Now, on to today's topic....

"Tag Lines. Everybody needs one."

Entering the bloggy world, you never know what kind of opportunities will arise.

Afterall, you may get an email one day from a publisher wanting to share your clever posts with the world and whisk you away on a fabulous book tour. Right? Right.

Oprah needs to know how to introduce your blog. Right? Right.

With twitter allowing only 140 characters, you need to be concise, people. Right? Right.

You, my dolls, need a tag line.

SITS has "The Secret to Success is Support." See? Concise, says a lot in a few words, looks good on a t-shirt, etc.

A few of my bloggy friends and I were recently working on a top secret project and needed to come up with one... I thought they came out great:

Lula is a semi-rebellious southern belle who believes monogrammed handkerchiefs and tattoos will never be out of style.

Kathy is a sarcastic mother of three who's busy home daycare clashes with her desire to do nothing all day.

Heather is a stay at home mom who swears by traditional values, black nail polish and anything Hello Kitty.

Are those great or what?

So, now it's you turn. Come up with a tag line.

You'll thank me from Oprah's couch. Promise.

Of course, it's me, so there is a contest.

Leave your tag line in the comments and I'll pick a winner on Monday.

$20 to Amazon.com... {you know you can buy just about anything over there.}

Oh, wait. You need to know mine, right? Right.

Tiffany is a merlot-loving momma and entreprenuer who thrives to dwell in possibility and designer handbags.

I know. Fabulous, right? Right.

Oh, even if you can't come up with a tag line, leave a comment so Angie will ask me back.

Help a sister out.

Tagline?? I totally need one, but don't have a clue where to start. Since I can be a procrastinator and can't think of fun and witty things right away, how about "I'm a momma, and I have no clue."

Ok, probably not a winner, but give me a week or so, and it will be golden!

Hi there. The closest thing I have to a tagline is, "My name is Melanie and I am the Reluctant Housewife."
