It's been one year since I began to write this little Mommy blog. It began as a hobby, a way to start writing again - something I hadn't had a spare second for since my boys were born - an outlet for my rants and ramblings and opinions, and a way to connect with other moms and add my two cents to the vast pool of parenting ideas we all dip into.
I'm so proud of what my little blog has become. It's so exciting to log on every day and see that I've had hundreds of hits that day, not just from North America and the United Kingdom but from places like Singapore and Lithuania and the Netherlands, that other bloggers have linked to my posts or repinned my photos and ideas or requested I write a guest post for their site.
A few months ago Google added ads to my site, turning a little hobby blog into a tiny income for this at-home mom. And just this week I was offered a regular staff writing post for an online magazine. It's not going to make me famous or earn enough to pay the bills. But it makes me happy that anyone thinks this little something I'm putting out there into the world has value of any sort.
So happy first birthday, little townhome love. I can't wait to see what happens with you in the next year!
