I’ll admit, I was skeptical when Daniel first proposed the Blog for Mommypotamus and Win Your Own Blog Contest. I wasn’t sure if anyone would enter, or if my lovely readers would “connect” with the author. Silly me!
You have connected.
You have empathized.
You have laughed together. And you have argued.
You have intimidated me off my own blog!
I can’t tell you how many times in the past few weeks I have considered closing up shop after this contest. The fact is, ya’ll are interesting people . . . it’s kind of a tough act to follow. If that was your master plan don’t celebrate just yet. I started blogging to keep my brain cells from going to mush amidst the daily routine of caring for a young child. Now I have TWO children and I’m more vulnerable to mush-disease than ever! So I will continue to write if only for my own survival.
Please give us a few days to tally up the unique comments for each post and determine the winner. In the meantime, there are a few things I’d like to say before I wrap this up.
To all of you that took time out of your busy lives to share your thoughts with us:
To those of you that interacted via comments to support your family/friends, or even someone you’ve never met.
Thank you for helping to keep this community going while our family welcomed our new baby. This is what community is all about . . . blog or real life. I love all of your faces, even if they are virtual and sometimes resemble Spongebob Squarepants. I love your comments and the little bits and pieces you share about your lives. I love the emails you send that make me want to fly to wherever you live and take you out for coffee. If you’re new, I’m so glad your here and I hope you’ll stay awhile. If you’re a long-time reader, thanks for sticking around
