I added up my blog followers, google readers and email subscribers and came up with almost 1,000. 1,000! My first thought was, well, actually it made me feel really good. Thanks for reading! My second thought was...where's the love?!? I am up for a Divine Caroline Love this Site Award and I don't exactly have 1,000 votes. So I am asking, pretty please vote for me. My blog is in the most competitive category and I am up against some of the biggest bloggers in the nation! Wouldn't it be fun to help an underdog take the lead?
If you do vote (and I know you will) make sure to enter my "Love! That Site Giveaway". I've decided to add one more thing to the grand prize winner's package. I just finished the book Mommy Confidence: 8 Easy Steps for reclaiming balance, motivation and your inner diva. It was written by Kimberly Clayton Blaine, who you may recognize as the "Go-To Mom". This little book is basically a published blog, full of Kimberly's tips on maintaining mommy sanity. The whole time I was reading it, I was thinking how it would be a great a book club choice. It is a very quick read and would be fabulous to insight a bit of conversation and debate on motherhood. She talks about some of the problems mom's deal from judgmental peers to dealing with body after baby. Kimberly has tons of great advice - she was the one who recommended I check out the Sophie Giraffe for my Baby Shower Giveaway.
The winner of the giveaway will receive their own copy of Mommy Confidence!
