I received such a pleasant surprise in my email yesterday from Anuj, a representative for Feedspot. He told me I was selected by their panel as one of the top 100 Stay at Home Mom blogs on the internet and I feel truly honored. Here is a portion of the email I received, and also a code to add the badge to my blog :-)
If you click on the badge on the right sidebar of my blog, it will take you to a full list of all the top 100 Stay at Home Mom blogs and how to subscribe to them and more. I came in at # 73 :-) Congratulations to all who have made the list! There are so many wonderful, amazing blogs out there and so many truly wonderful people I have met through the years. I feel so very honored to have been chosen for this recognition. Thank you to all who were a part of this nomination.
With that being said, I had just been talking with Jerry the other day about how I need to get more of my posts together and up on my site. This very life that we blog about also keeps us quite busy on a regular basis, lol. ;-) But no excuses, this is something I love... the sharing of recipes, crafts, daily life, tips and so much more. I need to get bak to all that! I started this blog in 2010 to document our family's lives and to leave a memory trail behind for my children and their children and so on for generations to come. I want my children, husband and family and friends to know how much I loved them and what they mean to me, even after I am gone. Then it also grew to fabulous friendships, some paid posts, blog conferences and so much more. Going further than I had ever originally planned! I write and take pictures for the enjoyment and the memories... To freely write is such a great privilege and blessing and I am so grateful to be a part of the blogging community. This award is that nudge to me that I need to get back to more frequently posting like I did before. So more will be coming soon, I just really wanted to share this with all of you!!! :-)
For fun I thought I'd share my very first blog post with you, you can read it here My how much has changed since this very first post! :-) Thank you to all who have been here with me since the beginning and a big welcome to all those just joining in!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!! It's a whirlwind here, but I will have a lot to share! Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog, there is so much more to come!
