There are moments in life that can only be described as messy.

They can sneak up on you, or come at you full force.

And they happen with everyone in your life: your friends, your family, or spouse, and most definitely, with your kids.

It’s such a relatable experience that when we were approached by our friends at Clorox about their Bleach It Away program, we instantly said, yes! Sign us up. What a perfect match not only for us, but also for practically every woman on the planet.

More importantly, the campaign is downright entertaining. It has been a LONG time since we worked with a brand and literally laughed out loud at what they put together.

We like to laugh. Don’t you?

Come Have Some Fun with Us

As we always say at Bloggy Boot Camp, if you want to take the plunge into working with brands, then the best way to get your feet wet is to start acting on opportunities that make sense for you and your blog.

If you’re up for an entertaining post, have ever had a “messy moment”, or just want to be a part of the coolest blog network around, then what we’re doing is for you!

Here’s a quick overview of what you need to do to get involved:

1) Write a post using the following writing prompt and post it on your blog between now and November 13:

Spending time with friends and family can lead to fun and memorable moments, but also some very messy ones. Tell us about the messiest moments that you’ll always remember!

If you’re not sure what constitutes a messy moment, then let these videos be your source of inspiration…

We told you this was funny, right?!

2) Insert the following text into your post:

I received information about Clorox’s Bleach It Away campaign and am sharing my messy moment for the chance to win prizes from The SITS Girls. To learn more about the messy moment program, check out www.BleachItAway.com. Sharing your story on the Clorox fan page gets you entered for the chance to win $25,000 and daily prizes, and you can grab a coupon for Clorox® Regular Bleach.

3) Come back to The SITS Girls on Thursday, November 3 to be entered into our drawing to win BIG.

Be sure to come back this Thursday, November 3. We’ll have the entry form waiting, so that you can submit your post into the drawing for our oh-so-wonderful prizes.

That’s it. Just three easy steps to get involved.

Did We Mention Our Fab Prizes?

We have got a few of them.

Because when we put on a campaign, we want it to be something that’s fabulous all around.

In honor of capturing life’s messiest moments on camera, everyone who participates in this campaign will automatically be entered into a giveaway for a Canon Rebel T2i.

Let’s say that again for effect.

This is a DSLR, the kind of camera that will give you those professional-looking photos to take your blog to the next level.  We use it and love it! It’s valued at a whooping $750. Exciting!

We’re giving away both the camera and the lens.

We’d also love to have one of the participating bloggers join us at Bloggy Boot Camp in 2012, so we’re giving away a free ticket to a stop of your choice too!

That’s two separate prizes for two different winners: an amazing camera and the chance to sit in a room full of women who love blogging as much as you do.

We hope you’ll join us!

And don’t forget to come back here on Thursday to enter the drawing. We’ll have the prize entry form up on our site at that time.


Bleachable Moments Anyone? We Know You’ve Got Them!

Sometimes two small things can add up to one big mess. Like a toilet-training toddler and a bath tub. We call these experiences Bleachable Moments because things like Clorox® Liquid Bleach can help make them better. Don’t’ let these “yuck + oops” experiences throw you. Clorox is launching the Bleach It Away program to help prepare families to tackle their next Bleachable Moment. This new online community – which is housed on Clorox’s Facebook page – invites visitors to share their own Bleachable Moments and commiserate with other moment survivors, while receiving real-time advice and solutions from Clorox’s panel of cleaning and laundry experts. If this isn’t enough, people who share their stories have the chance to win $25,000!

Disclosure: The SITS Girls are working on behalf of Clorox to promote the Bleach It Away campaign. To read more about the policies surrounding sweepstakes on The SITS Girls, go here.
