Monday, Feb. 11, is my 3 year blogging anniversary AKA blogiversary. (Can you believe it?! 3 years!) To celebrate, I will be hosting a giveaway right here to be announced that day. Please check back on Monday for details. :) It’s Jody birthday on Sunday and I still don’t know what we’re going to do to celebrate. Anyone have any ideas on things to do? He’s not giving me any suggestions on how he’d like to spend the day. :oP Have a great weekend!

There have been a couple of noteworthy changes recently here at Crunchy Domestic Goddess. The first is that links to subscribe to my RSS feed via a feed reader (like Google Reader) or via e-mail are now located at the top left-hand corner of my site. Subscribing to my RSS feed is a great way to receive notification whenever new posts are published. If you have already subscribed to my site (you rock!), I’d sincerely appreciate it if you’d resubscribe using one of those links (and then you’ll doubly rock!). That way I can have a better idea of how many people are reading myRead More →

I’d like to welcome a new advertiser to Crunchy Domestic Goddess – Lily’s Garden Herbals, maker of natural, herbal, non-toxic household cleaners. You may recall that I reviewed these natural cleaning products a few months ago and was very pleased with the results. Lily’s Garden Herbals were formulated by Kim Falcone, a mother and herbalist with a deep appreciation for the natural world. All of Lily’s Garden Herbals natural household products are homemade, non-toxic, contain NO chemical ingredients or synthetic preservatives, are biodegradable and never tested on animals. Her ad is located in my left sidebar. Welcome, Lily’s Garden Herbals!

2/2/08: This GIVEAWAY is now CLOSED. I am no longer accepting new entries. Thank you for all of the interest! :) It’s time again for another round of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival and this time I’ve got something supa-dupa cool to give away – a digital camera! It’s an HP Photosmart M547 6.2 MP 3x Optical Zoom digital camera. (Thank you, HP!) I’d like to say that it’s brand new in the box, but the truth is that I took it out and used it a handful of times. That was back when we were thinking of buying a new camera and I wanted toRead More →

I’m excited to announce that starting this week, I will be writing for BlogHer in the BlogHers Act: Maternal Health area. While we were in Kansas over Christmas, I got an email from the wonderful women of BlogHer asking me if I’d be interested in joining them as a contributing editor writing on the topic of maternal health. As most of you know, pregnancy and birth, two big aspects of maternal health, are among my passions, so of course I said yes. I am thrilled for the opportunity to write about the things that I love (and I must admit the opportunity to be paidRead More →

Kelli at There is no place like home and Steph at Adventures in Babywearing both inspired me to do my own year in review post. They both posted the first sentence of their first blog post of each month, but I’m changing the “rules” for my blog and doing things a little differently. Instead of taking the first sentence from the first post of each month, I’m selecting the first sentence (or few sentences) from one of my favorite posts from each month and including a link to that post as well in case something piques your interest. (Yes, it took a lot more timeRead More →
