I reached my goal of 100 subscribers yesterday!
I don’t know if that is a small or a large number compared to other mom blogs, but that doesn’t matter — I am so glad and honored that more and more of you are enjoying my blog and returning for many visits.
I hear some fathers like to read my blog, too!
I only entered into this blogging world seven months ago, and I had no idea what I got myself into — and how rewarding this experience would be.
Yes, I have basically been up past 1 a.m. every night, but that’s because blogging about the topics I am passionate about with a pinch of humor is so much fun — I just can’t stop (well, and then there is having to learn all the background stuff: running the site, HTML, administrative stuff . . . oye).
I’m amazed by the kindness of other mom bloggers who have been there for me with advice and resources. I have become addicted to Twitter and there, too, I find a community of great people who are always willing to help.
I write this blog primarily to be a resource and support for other moms.
I hope to empower you to follow your instincts when it comes to raising your children in a gentle, loving way and ignore what others are saying — which, I believe, will naturally lead you to an interest in drug-free birth, breastfeeding, and attachment parenting.
I aim to make your life a little easier with informative articles about how to be frugal and green or make you smile with posts about my life.
Thank you to everyone I have come in contact with in these last few months, and thank you to all of my loyal subscribers and almost 1,500 Twitter followers — it has been such a pleasure.
I have big plans for this blog. I will change things around, I will delete and add things — be ready!
As always, I am grateful for any advice or comment — even constructive criticism. I can take it. I write this blog for your information and entertainment, so if you have an idea about how to do things better, don’t be shy and e-mail me!
And I hope you will tell others about this blog — help me meet my next goal: 200 subscribers!
Congratulations, Ericka, on being my 100th blog subscriber and receiving the $100 Lucky Brand Jeans gift card.
