In the Spring of this year, I decided to take a second stab at blogging. My desire to do so came from missing university and wanting to write for pleasure. The reason I chose Mommy Blogging is because each night I went to bed, I was so excited for what they day held with my then two under two. I loved (and still love) planning out a highlight of our day; something to stimulate their imagination and reinforce their zest for life. Because money was tight, I figured my slant would be from the perspective of someone on a simple budget. My hope was that maybe some people may stumble upon my work and enjoy it themselves. At the very least, it would be a great reference for me to look up past activities and follow what we had did before, if nothing else. Little did I know how wonderful people from all around the world would be. So many are stand-outs, but an especially big thanks to my husband, my kids, my mom, auntie Dee, and bloggers from Three Boys and a Mom, Mama by Fire, Wading Through Motherhood, Tales from the Mommy Trenches, Mosswood Connections and the Cheerio Diaries. Thank you to Chelsea LePage, from Snug as a Bug Sleep Consulting, for being my first guest poster. And many thanks to RBC and Mom Central for facilitating my first sponsored post, the Vancouver Aquarium for inviting my family to our first media event, and Bright Nights in Stanley Park Christmas Train for donating the prizes for my first two giveaways. I am truly blessed, enterally grateful and humbled by everyone’s encouragement, support, participation, and generosity.
THANK YOU!!! WordPress created a year in review for my blog; here it is for you to view 🙂
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
