Making Connections

As a SAHM, I'm always looking for ways to keep in touch with the outside world.  I mean, I love my kids and all but duh, adult interaction, if only through a computer, is mandatory. 

That's one of the reasons I wanted to start this blog.  I've been really into reading the blogs of people I know and people I'll probably never meet.  It's a lot of fun to be able to escape into someone else's life through their blog, if only for a few minutes.  I have quite a few that I check into often (you can find them all on my BlogRoll page) and I've grown to love all of them.  It's interesting to me to "meet" different families, read different writing styles and learn all kinds of new things in the Mommy World.

I discovered a site called Social Moms and it's great for meeting moms, networking or just having a place to vent and discuss in groups that you can join.  I've added their widget in my sidebar that will be displaying the latest posts of other members and will be another way to connect to other blogs of interest.

Through Social Moms, I found another blog called Hip Chick’s Guide to PMS, Pregnancy and Babies.  Go check her out here:


 Hip Chick Guide to PMS, Pregnancy and Babies


I've also added her button to my BlogRoll page.  She does a Blog Hop called Fab Friends Thursday Blog Hop and I knew I had to link up!  Besides, the button is beyond cute!  If you're interested at all in getting more followers, I would really recommend getting your blog in to a Blog Hop like this!

Click the adorable button below to be taken to the Fab Friends Thursday Blog Hop post at Hip Chick’s Guide to PMS, Pregnancy and Babies to find out how you can join in!  (But hurry, this Blog Hop ends March 22!)

Anyway, I know some of you that read my blog are just friends and family and you'd love whatever I wrote about (or at least you'd lie and tell me you do), but I'd like to say thanks for reading anyway!  And, if you don't have a blog already, start one!  There are countless topics to write about (your life, your business, current events or issues that interest you) and you can bet someone will be interested it whatever you choose!

Aww, thank you so much for the mention! I really appreciate it! You have a great blog yourself, and it's been great to connect with you!

My blog hop is a recurrent event, so it takes place every Thursday. I actually post about the blog hop every Wednesday at noon, and it's open until the following Tuesday. Every week! So come by and link up every week. When you are first starting out, blog hops are the fastest way to get followers :-)

And you're always welcome to guest blog for me, if you want to share your parenting advice, or write about pregnancy or baby-related that you think my readers would love! :-)

Thanks again,
DP
