Housekeeping (of the bloggy variety)

You may have noticed that I’ve added a few new pages lately over in the right sidebar under well, pages, of course. :)

The first is the Contest page, where I will list contests of note that I’ve entered around the blogosphere. If you are ever looking for some contests to enter, please check out my list. :)

The second is my new submit a product for review page. I’ve done a few reviews here lately (have a few more scheduled) and am interested in doing more. Here’s a bit about what I’m looking for (taken from that page)…
If you have a product that you think would appeal to me and my readers (who are generally moms of young children), please contact me. Things that are of particular interest are items promoting breastfeeding, babywearing, attachment parenting or green living, natural toys, anything photography-related, as well as clothing and shoes for babies, toddlers, kids and mamas. Natural products for babies, children or mamas are also of interest.

I also started up a more linky love page where I have buttons to some contest blogs as well as buttons for my blogging pals. If you have a button for your blog and would like it to appear on that page, please contact me. I’m an equal opportunity bloggy love linker (uh, whatever that means).

My last matter of bloggy business is that Nell over at Casual Friday Everyday (I love that blog name and her slogan – “Where every day is take your kids to work day” hee hee) recently honored me with the BFF: Blog Friend Forever award.

“This award is presented to awesome BLOG owners who keep their readers excited about their posts. Their blog posts are interesting (NOT spammy) and worth reading and keep their subscribers looking forward to each and every post.”

Thank you, Nell. :) I really appreciate this especially because there are some days when I write a post and I wonder if anyone is getting anything out of it. But then the writing makes me feel good so I keep at it. :)

I have several blogs I visit regularly, but the bloggers I’d like to pass this on to are:

  • Steph at Adventures in Babywearing (even though she already received it from Nell, I too am always looking forward to her posts) – She’s always posting about current events and challenging her readers. Plus she has some pretty kick ass giveaways.
  • Leigh at Mere Mortal Mama – She doesn’t post as often as I’d like (guess she’s too busy caring for her 2 month old and 2 year old – the nerve *wink*), but I always look forward to what she has to say. She’s a doula, an amazing writer, and I feel like we have a lot in common – including our breech baby home births.
  • Heather at A Mama’s Blog – Heather is my friend IRL (in real life) and I know she started her blog as a way to document her children’s lives, but she also has been touching on many important issues relating to women such as alarming c-section rates, breastfeeding, etc. I feel like she’s doing a great job getting the word out about issues of which we should all be informed.

That’s all the housekeeping I have for today. Thank you and good night. :)

  1. Thank you for the BFF award (blushing).

    I feel like you at times when writing something, but it does make you feel better, and it is great when other people can benefit from a post, whether it is on c-sections, breastfeeding, or a laundry tip. :-)

    You inspired me to start a blog, so you are the “Queen Blogger” in my book. :-)
