    i have Two young girls and one boy i know they would love prize #9,1,2,7,8,11,12,and 10

    • says

      MashaAllah, May Allah bless you and your kids. Jazaka Allahu Khayrun–that’s quite the compliment to know we have what you’ve been looking for after all this time.

      At anytime, you want to see a certain topic, we’re an tweet or email away!

      BTW, interesting priority list you have. LOL!

  2. says

    Oh, Ponn! The site looks fabulous! I love the color scheme and the new logo is adorable! It’s easy to navigate, too!

    Much success and oodles of blessings!

    I love prizes 3, 4, 1, 10, 2, 12 and 13

    GREAT GIVEAWAY! What a rad group of sponsors!

    • says

      Thanks bunches Jessi! So very proud & humbled in my blessings.

      And, the Tommee Tippee bottle…are we expecting and I’m JUST finding out right Now!?

    • says

      Aww–thank you. I was totally going to cleaning things up, lighter: so clearer is good. Then, simple: so concise totally works! And, yeah; I’m proud of my designers ability to digitalize the image for my logo. ;-)

  3. says

    Salaam,
    Very excited about this site!

    I look forward to seeing how the site showcases the diversity of American Muslim Moms. I am African American, born Muslim, and I work full-time and have 1 son. I just hope this site isn’t primarily for stay at home moms. :-)

    I am would be happy to win any of the prizes, Shukran for offering them!

    • says

      Salaam.
      Well, dear sister Laila, you’re definitely a newbie to my site…Please, please get my free ebook and take a look at my testimonials, people particularly LOVE how I talk about Money as 1/3 of our responsibilities as a Muslim Women. Marriage & Motherhood the other 2/3. Also, if you look at our stats and all my past Muslim Consumer articles you will see that Muslim Women are the only religious or ethnic group with the most education and are the only women segment that has salaries somewhat equal to the Muslim males of this country. Please stay awhile, I’ve been here since 2005, but officially American Muslim Mom brand since July 2009.

  4. Margaret Smith says

    I love how well your site is set up and how it is pleasing on the eyes. I really enjoy the Home & Garden section. I’m always looking for great recipes that my children will enjoy.
    I’m a stay at home Mom with 3 kids, 5, 11, 13.
    Thanks so much.
    I like prizes: 1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 12
    Thanks so much.

    • says

      Yes–I believe it is pleasing too. I spent so much time researching colors that has “stickability” and “clickability” and this color scheme ranked the highest. Thank you for your kind words. All our Green, more Natural Home & Garden and all our By Kids for Kids Recipes are a huge hit. Please come often Margaret!

    • says

      Are you writing to “Like” the video? So, you watched it, but are you a subscriber? Because there are no “thumbs up” showing new activity. Please clarify this entry.

    • says

      Thanks Soha. Can you be more descriptive in the design, navigation, the backbones of the new website; more than just the content, please. Also, since we’ll be picking 13 winners, shall you be chosen and the first 2 prizes are already given away, do you prefer to forgo a prize, or willing to take anything?

  5. says

    The site looks great! I like that you have very specific instructions on giveaway entries, including sample tweets and whatnot. One thing- the twitter link in your top banner leads to a “page doesn’t exist” message, so you may want to fix that. I’d most like to win prizes #1, #2, #10 or #12. Someone else could make more use of the other prizes, because I’m not a serious blogger or a mother (yet!).

    • says

      Hi Julie!

      Thank you so much for the very important tip re: Twitter feed. I got my designers on that one.

      I appreciate your feedback re: rules, because you’d be surprise how many people don’t even follow the very few rules I lay out. With the exception of today’s contest, I typically have them only answer 1-thing in my comments for an entry and I’ve had dozenS who never follow that 1 rule…go figure.

      I also thank you for your honesty and allowing others to have access to prizes that wouldn’t serve your needs at this time!

      Hope this is not a 1-time visit to our site, inshaAllah, God willing.

  6. Heather S says

    I like the site but I think the graphics could be better. Like when you go under Travel some of the logos are blurry like Lingo. Also, just some updated graphcs/pictures would be good. I also think the background color is pale maybe a soft green or brighter blue? I like the logo but it looks stark against the white background. Good info on the site.

    1,2,8,12

    • says

      Hi Heather.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the graphics.

      1. Regarding the lingo logo being blurry, that’s because you’re looking at the Category, and this is a new feature we didn’t have until yesterday which defaults any image in the blogpost to give a 125X125 button on the screen page. So, if we have a smaller logo, like we do for “lingo” then it’s enlarged into the category list button (you’ll better understand if you look at each individual post). Unfortunately with 424 blogposts over the past 6 years we will not be able to go back into every post to adjust to meet this new image requirement.

      However, knowing this, we can in from today forward.

      2. Can you please explain what you mean by “updated graphics/pictures”? All are graphics are new or made available the day of the post. I really want to understand this recommendation better. Please share more details.

      3. Obviously this is your first time here, because our last design was light greens and brighter blues–very cutesy and fun. However, having spent a LOT of time researching the best colors and designs for chooses the best mix that causes “stickability” how long a person stays on a website and “clickability” how often a person clicks, our color scheme right now is one of the best to date. Look at the Top 3 sites: Google, Yahoo & Facebook. Notice link colors, etc. too.

      4. Yes, I agree, we are very pleased with the logo. I agree with it being a bit of lower resolution and not as crisp as in other places. I have our designers working on that, so it won’t blur and look as “stark” as you explain.

      It’s critiques like these that make us better serve our community, so I thank you Heather.

      Looking forward to your reply.

  7. Jeff says

    The style of the website with a large amount of text on the left side needs to be better organized.

    The right side seems fine as far a easy of use and organization.

    I would like to win prize 1, 2,

    • says

      Thank you Jeff for your comments. Interesting first view of my site, because what you share needs is exactly what we changed and needed to change in our last design.

      Previously I have a magazine-format, and because we’re a very active commenting blog, the homepage was always skewed with TOO much sidebar action, buttons, etc. that we needed to return to the blog 2-column format for the left side of text to meet, and our goal is to exceed the right side: only for individual blogposts.

      However, if you look at the homepage you’ll see that the sidebar and content left-side is almost exactly equal in length, with just a tab bit more room to the right, shall we have other features to add, like the “Monthly Specials and Sales” that was a big hit last month, and we just forgot to put up.

      Comparably to our last design, we took off a ton of graphics, customized headers, and toned down the mis-matching text and fonts on our sidebar, so this has completely made the sidebar much more user-friendly.

      Please know I greatly appreciate you being a first-time visitor and want you to continue to come here, and that we’ll see if there are other tweaks we can make that’ll make your visit more visually pleasing. So, if you have more details to share, after having read my reply, this would greatly help me and my design team very much.

      Thanks for your comment. And, please let us know if you don’t want any of the other prizes, or you do, we need to know.

  8. says

    I love the logo for American Muslim Mom blog! It incorporates family & connection I like the easy navigation bar but I personally like a “Post a Comment” Pop-up link for faster commenting abilities.
    Thanks! This American Muslim outlook is fantastic.

    Prizes #1,2,11,12,8,3,6,10,9

    • says

      Thanks Erin, we totally love our logo too–I actually drew it out by hand and my designers digitalized it but made it awesome with the crescent moon and star.

      Hah! Thanks for sharing that about the commenting, because I have to be logged into my admin panel to reply with my name, I didn’t know we had this new feature–but, I’ve always shared my biggest woes, typically of BLogger and Typepad, is when there’s a great blog post I want to share my feedback, insights or just kudos, and there’s SO many ropes to jump just to make me comment, I get so frustrated and often leave. Then, they wonder why they have little or low comments. So, thanks I appreciate you detailing what you like in our new design!

  9. Amy Brewer says

    I love your home and garden part as well. I seen the homemade pizza sauce and would love to make that myself. I will have to try it out. I know it’s an older post but I haven’t ever been on your site till now..will have to come back over.
    I like prizes 1-2-10-11. Those 4 would be the ones my family and I could use. I can’t really use anything that has to do with a website because I don’t have one. Thanks for the chance….

    • says

      Oh Amy, I really do hope you come and stay often here. As for the pizza recipe the joke (at least for hubby) is that that particular recipe is nothing like his. The problem of updating the sauce recipe is the 2-3 dozen times he makes his homemade pizza sauce, he changes it every time.

      Anyways, we are now homemade pizza experts–and never buy out anymore, because Pizza night is more like Family Pizza day, we spend hours in the kitchen as a family, cutting up fresh veggies, pitting olives and slicing them, etc. etc. It makes such memories and the smells and tastes are ever so wonderful.

      I pray you and your family can start making similar memories in your kitchen!

      And, thanks for sharing your honest desire to win or not win certain prizes.

  10. sena s says

    The blog’s looking great! Neat layout and well organized :) Keep up the good work!

    I’d love to win prizes #1, 2, 6, 7, 8.
    I think someone would benefit more than my family and I, shall I be chosen for prizes #3, 4, 5, 9-14.

    Thank you!

  11. says

    I’d like to win #1, #2 Then #12. But would be happy with anything.

    This is my first stop on your blog. Love it so far and thanks for the giveaway

  12. says

    Thanks so much for this wonderful giveaway!
    I’d love to win prizes #1,2,3,4 5, 12and 13 I’d be happy with winning anything but you can leave me out of the other drawings.

    Thanks

    • says

      What other drawings Peggy?
      It’s one drawing with 13 winners will be chosen, shall you be chosen I’ll go down your priority list to see which prizes are still available.

      Also, to qualify you need to comment about our new blog design.

    • says

      Hi James. Can you please share some feedback regarding our redesign, logo, tagline, video, podcast?

      And, thanks–we’re very proud of all our Sponsors and their generous gifts–we love them all too!

  13. says

    I like your logo, color scheme, and navigability of this site. It’s so nice to see a wonderful Muslim site like yours!

    If I win, I prefer prizes in order: 1, 2, 10, 8, and 13. Any other prize would benefit someone else much more than it would benefit me, so I would decline any other item than those listed here. Thank you!

    • says

      Thanks SO much Erin for your kind review and comments.

      After all these years and the phenomenal growth we’ve experienced since we turned it over to the American Muslim Mom brand, it was time to give it the professional look, feel and design it deserves and demands. It was an huge investment that we’re proud of, mashaAllah, God has willed.

  14. juliaa says

    i like the logo, but the twitter/rss/etc links clutter the top bar a bit. they’re important to have prominently, but i think they’d look better in the sidebar instead of on top like that.

    i really like ‘trying to stay centered at all times’. that can be so difficult in the blogosphere, and it’s really great to find a blog with that focus. :)

    i’m not a mommy yet, and not an active blogger, so someone else would benefit more from those prizes.

    i’d love to win any of the cash gift cards, of course, and the tagine spice trio and pomegranate soda look great too. thanks for a great giveaway!

    • says

      Hi Juiliaa,

      Thanks for your input on our logo & tagline. Regarding the social media buttons, interesting point. I actually asked my designers about this today, for the very reasons you mentioned. Not sure if it’s easily done, but I agree. But, it not, I’m happy with them there too.

  15. oumzak says

    love the new logo. my goodness there is a LOT of info on your site. it’s a great resource, i just need to find the time to go into it! i am not sure if there is a way to make it appear like less info, i know that sounds crazy, but the large amount of info can seem a little overwhelming when you are a mom and only only get 5 min at a time on the computer while your kids paint the walls. i can’t wait to check it out more, though! thanks for the resource!

    and thanks for the opportunity to win prizes, i would be cool with #1,2,7,12,6,9,8,11,13 but someone else would benefit from 3,4,5,10,14

    may Allah reward you!

    • says

      Thank you for your input we love our logo and the resources have been compiling since 2005, so yes–we have a ton of it.

      As for your request, in all honesty, this is exactly what I wanted to emphasize was our wealth of content by bringing it back to the 2-column blog format, rather than our previous magazine-format.

      Since we have the ‘archives’ tab & ‘search’ option up top, I’d advise you use those 2 resources to guide your journey through all our useful articles–I use the 2 features every day.

      As, I’m a “Mom” after all ;-)

      And, jazaka Allahu Khayrun. Ameen.

  16. says

    Asalaamu Alaikum

    I only qualify for the worldwide gifts as I am Canadian.

    I was thinking you need to add photos/pics or videos.

    • says

      Wa-alaykum asalam.

      Can you please explain your request in more detail?

      In our new design, I agreed to add an image in every single post–which we’ve been doing successfully for the past 2-4 weeks. And, we have our Sunday Showtimes that we’ve been doing since 2009, where we add videos. Along with our sidebar video, and our link to our YouTube channel above.

      Where else would you like to see images and videos, specifically?

      Wa salam.

  17. Safiyah says

    Mashaallah, the new look is just beautiful! Very profesh, with clean, minimalistic lines.

    Thank you so much for offering this amazing giveaway, jazakillah khair!

    As a homeschooling mama of four, I’d like to win either 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 11, or 12. My childrens ages are 7, 5, 3 and 8 months, and love to read and learn with manipulatives!

    • says

      Jazaka Allahu Khayrun, the 3 descriptions you shared is exactly what we wanted to achieve. Yay!

      MashaAllah, since you’re just starting your homeschooling journey, please visit often and jump into our various tutorials, tips, tools, resources, etc. Our youngest is 7yo, so early ed is far behind us. Though we review and share all our early ed stuff with our nieces and nephews; so stick around for all upcoming homeschooling pieces too, inshaAllah.

  18. Marie says

    I think the site looks nice. I appreciate it being tidy, not overwhelming with graphics, too many ads, etc.
    While there is a lot to read, I think overall it is very attractive.

    I am entering for prizes #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12, and 13.
    I will not be able to use #6, 7, 8, 9, or 10.

  20. JAMES P LYNAM says

    I LOVE THE NEW LOGO.

    THE AMOUNT OF INFO IS ALMOST TOO MUCH.

    BUT I LOVE IT.

    I WANT TO WIN 1, 2, 6, 7 OR 12.

  21. Kalimah Abdul-Rahim says

    As Salaamu Alaikum Sister! the new website is wonderful! I am loving the new logo with the family and the Stars and Crescent, it brings a smile to my face :) the Home Education section has been my “stomping grounds” lately, with 4 small children (ages 5,4,2, and 1) and planning on homeschooling them, insha’Allah, i will really be using these resources.
    Again, I am impressed and inspired by you and your amazing children! masha’Allah!
    I would like prizes 7,6,1,2,8 and I am opting out of prizes 3, 4, 5 since I don’t have a website of my own and prize 14. Thank you for all of your hard work, may Allah reward you :)

    • Kalimah Abdul-Rahim says

      PS. I like the 2 column format too, I find it easier to read, and love the “Theme Days” (Tech Tuesdays, etc)

  22. says

    I just came across your blog and I’m impressed by how well-written, clear and concise it is. Highly professional, it serves as a real contrast to the all-too-typical “mommy blog.” I very much appreciate the absence of visual clutter, (especially those horrible flashing and blinking graphics) and the lack of text talk and multiple exclamation points.

    One recommendation (or perhaps it is a bit of a wish): while I found a tiny bit of information about you on the blog, I’d like to know more about your background, how you became the “American Muslim Mom” blogger, and how your blogging philosophy has developed.

    As for the giveaway, I’d love to win prizes 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 or 13. However, there are no young children in my life now, so I want someone else to win prizes 6, 7, 9, 11 and 14.

    • says

      MashaAllah, God has willed, all that I am, all that I do, and all I give to Him, my family and You–MY reader.

      Thank you EVER so kindly for this incredible testimony to our design and most of all our content! It’s been a long journey, with tons of support, and LOTS of work–so I can’t thank you humbly enough.

      As for your wish, if you read the whole About page, and scroll to the history, it’s all there–most of it; some as hubby says is “too personal”, but maybe with the influx of new readers, traffic, it’s time to re-emphasize our humble beginning to what we’ve grown to become.

      Please let this be the beginning of your steady communications with our active community!

    • says

      You are welcome, Vivian. And, thank you for your comment! If you return with details about our design and share which prizes you’d like to win–you’re comment counts as an entry. Please reply.

  23. says

    My wife and I love your blog!

    The logo and color scheme looks great!

    We also enjoy your Home Education Feed!

    Thanks for the great giveaway offering!

    And I’d love to win prizes #1 and/or #2

    Good Luck to All!

    • says

      Thank you LeAndrew and wife! Yes, we’re very proud of our Home Education resources, articles, tutorials and more.

      Please don’t just wish us luck, come stay and learn awhile!

  24. says

    I like your blog design because it is clean and not cluttered. You have a nice logo at the top left which clearly reflects the Muslim theme of the site but isn’t so huge that you can’t see the content on the page.

    The only thing I’d suggest is that you look into a plug in like “cute profiles” plugin to float your social media buttons on the side of the blog. I like that because even as you scroll down the post you can still see the social media buttons.

    In order I’d like prizes # 1, 4, 2, 13, 10, 12 or 8.

    Thanks!

    • says

      Hi Anne!
      Thank you SO much for your wonderful & supportive feedback. What you shared is exactly what we were trying to achieve, minimalistic, clean, simple, blogging-basics.

      As for your suggestion, that’s a great one. My only concern with that plugin is is that I had it cluttering up the content when one is reading–but if I can get it on the right-side, you’re right I have SO much content & tons of comments, that it’s more user-friendly not to have to scroll all the way up top again–or, did you notice, all the social media buttons are in my footer (all the way at the bottom) too.

      And, you’re welcome! May this be the beginning of many more comments.

  25. says

    I love the logo with the family & the stars. I also love how your social media buttons are very simple and easy to reach on the top right corner….
    These are my fav., most important first:

    1. $100 visa
    2. $25 visa
    12. $20 Tupperware gc
    14. Tommee Tipee Bottle

    • says

      We adore our new logo too, thanks Crystal! Yes, we wanted simple, prominent social media buttons up top & in our footer…did you happen to notice those? ;-)

  26. says

    Mashallah Ponn, your website is wonderful! I found you through Productive Muslim’s Facebook post.

    I like your logo. It’s simple and easily recognizable. Congratulations on your new branding!

    I hope to grow my blog to be as great as yours one day so I think that prizes 3 and 4 would be my #1 choice. If not those, than 6 and 7 for my girls. 1 and 2 are always welcome choices.

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

      MashaAllah sister Amnah and jazaka Allahu Khayrun for your extremely kind words. And, we greatly appreciate finding out how you found us.

      FYI, I’ve been blogging since 2004, and we repositioned this mommy blog in 2009, so this growth wasn’t sudden or without a TON of work and resources. InshaAllah, yours will come in time.

      Few tips:
      a. When you comment, link to your blog, it hyperlinks to your site. I clicked it and you put your email address there too, so I don’t know your url.
      b. Get my ebook, there’s great starter info and you’ll be on my email list for all our upcoming products, services, opportunities and more. I’ve helped Muslims get featured in CNN before, which helps any blogger, right? http://americanmuslimmom.com/ebook
      c. Sign-up for my Muslim Mom Media network, especially since the goal is specifically for Muslim Moms to make money online and gain opportunities to grow your blog, inshaAllah T’ala. http://americanmuslimmom.com/muslimmommedia
      d. Follow us as many of our social networking sites as possible, because I share different things on each site.

      That should get you started, alhumdulilah. Let me know whenever and however I can help!

    I love the new design. The logo is great and overall the website just feels calm. It’s clean and well organized. Keep up the great work.

    If I am lucky enough to win a prize my top choices are 1 and 9. #3,4,5, and 14 don’t interest me but any of the others prizes would be appreciated. May Allah continue to bless you and your family. Salaam.

      Jazaka Allahu Khayrun for your support & encouragement. Yes, “calm”–that’s a new description, and definitely one I was shooting for–our last one was colorful and I grew out of it. Thanks for noticing.

      Ameen!

      And, salaam–may this be the beginning of many more–and that you’re not just here for the Contest. But, if you are–we have contests every Thursday, inshaAllah ;-)

    I love how simple this site’s navigation is! If i left this page, I know I could get back.

  30. Gaines Simmons says

    Easy access, great site navigation, organized and uncluttered. Great job thus far. You could add Koran verses in Arabic and English as background. I am following, liking, joining and subscribing. Please enter me in numbers one, two, three and thirteen give-aways.

  31. Erica C, says

    I like that the site is easy on the eyes, well organized, and loads quickly. There isn’t a lot of flashy ads to slow down loading times.
    I’d love to be entered for the $100 visa card, $25 visa card, and the $20 Tupperware e-gift certificate. The other prizes wouldn’t benefit us as much.

  32. habitka says

    Your organization of your blog is nice and I like the colours they’re easy on the eyes.
    prizes 1,2,10

  33. susan smoaks says

    i love the american muslim mom blog, you have such great ideas and i like that it will help people realize that not all musilims are bad
    i would like 1 & 2

  34. Patricia says

    Thank you for the contest! I would like to win items #1 or #2 (and forgo any other prizes if those are taken and I am selected). I really like your blog and find not only is it easy on the eyes as far as graphics and colors go but I also find that it is quick to load and easy to navigate through.

  35. Jennifer J says

    I really like your logo it’s very nice. I also like how neat & clean your layout is, it makes for a quick load time. i’d choose 1,2,9 or 10 if i won. Thank You!

    • says

      Thanks Jennifer–we love our new logo. And, interesting that you said it “makes for a quick load time”, because we’re working VERY hard behind the scenes since we were ~80% of the fastest sites, and dropped down ~37% slowest. So, I’m so glad to hear you’re loading fast. Which browser are you using? And, you’re welcome–this will definitely be our biggest giveaway contest of the year–in terms of # of prizes. But, Allahu alam (Only God knows), maybe, God willing something more will turn up! ;-)

  36. Chrysa says

    I love your logo! It’s very stylized with great color and design. I also like that the site itself is very clean and not cluttered.

    My prize choice order is: 1,2,4,10,8,3,6,12,13,7,9

    THANKS!

  37. Suzanne Lewis says

    I think the site would benefit from some more color to spice it up.

    I’d like to be considered for prizes 1, 2, and 12 only. Thanks!

      Thanks Suzanne. We purposefully took out all the spicey colors of our last design ;-) But, will look forward to adding nice images and video to keep you coming. :-)

  38. tina page says

    I am not Muslim (nor any organized religion) but strive to teach my children about all religions (especially Islam due to the current hatred towards it that has been permeating our country for the last several years. I have been to your site several times now and find it to be balanced, informative, and well-written.
    I am interested in #7,8, and 10 though I would certainly welcome any gift spread my way and would gift it forward if I was not able to use it.
    Thank you….

    • says

      Hi Tina. You have no idea how humbling it is to read your comment. Nearly half of our readers are non-Muslims, who I’d like to believe frequent our site for the “balanced, informative and well-written” content; so to read your feedback; I feel so blessed–Thank you!

  39. Sand says

    I love the way the site is setup as it’s so neat and clean. The banner is lovely.

    I’d love to win prizes #1, 2, 7, 8, 9 or 13.

  40. says
