An All New (and a Giveaway!!!)

"Better Homes and Gardens Homepage"I have a longstanding history with Better Homes and Gardens. I swiped my mom’s magazines until I started having it delivered to my dorm room in college. More than a few years later, I still look forward to my magazine each month. And this obsession extends to the web site, as is one of my first go-to sites for this column or when I need decorating tips, recipes, and holiday ideas. (As plants wither in my presence, I don’t take much advantage of the garden part, though.) So when I say I’m excited about the updated BHG site, it’s not just because they sent me the promotional material and free subscriptions to give away. I actually am excited.

Above is a glimpse of their new home page. CLICK HERE to visit the new BHG. The site has a new, fresh, clean design; every major category is accessible from the green bar on the home page to make the site easier to navigate; the food and recipe sections have been overhauled to help you quickly find what you need; you’ll find beautiful, larger images throughout; and the site is updated multiple times a day. As one who mines the internet for my job, I rely heavily on a site’s slideshows to quickly search for edible crafts. I’m always grateful for a well organized format that also offers the entire slideshow as thumbnails, and so few sites do this. Phew. BHG now does. (Really, I’m a slideshow nut, so this new and improved slideshow feature is a big one for me.)

You may have picked up on my “free subscriptions to give away” comment. Yes. BHG has given me some magazine subscriptions to give away. Five of them! Stay tuned… Details on how to enter are coming soon.
