Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

8th-birthday-cakeThis summer marks 8 full years of CarseatBlog.com! We can hardly believe it. In some ways it seems like not so long ago that we began writing about carseats, child passenger safety and vehicle safety. And in other ways it feels like we’ve been doing this 4Ever… Lol! Along the way we’ve shared a lot of laughs, made some amazing friends, written about 1,400 blog posts and oh, yeah – reviewed over 100 carseats and boosters!

Whether you’re new to CarseatBlog.com or have been with us since the start in 2008 – we’d like to share our celebration (and our cake!) with you. You are the reason we’re still here 8 years later, still blogging away, always looking for ways to improve our content and better serve our readers.

The field of Child Passenger Safety is really heating up and we can’t wait to see all the awesome advances in safety, technology and innovation that the next 8 years is going to bring. We hope you stick around and enjoy the ride with us!

During the next 8 weeks we’re going to be celebrating by giving away some really great carseats so stay tuned! Each week will feature a new giveaway promotion and your odds of winning something are pretty darn good. Consider it a personal “thank you” from Darren, Heather, Kecia, Jennie, Alicia, Andrea, Katie and all of our guest bloggers at CarseatBlog!

To kickstart our 2016 Blogiversary Celebration, we’ve partnered with our very generous sponsor, GRACO, to offer a new Graco 4Ever All-in-One Convertible Carseat! Fashion choice will be limited to what is currently in stock at Graco.
