Did you know that I am rapidly approaching the start of my 4th year with this little blog? It has stopped and started many times throughout that run. Life happens, babies happen, and blogs pause. But I have to say I am really enjoying it right now. It has taken me this long in my blogging life, to get closest to who I actually am. When I started the blog with my sis in law, it was meant as a resource and I was trying to reach all kinds of demographics. I was posting items that I thought people would like for their parties but not things I would really want at mine. I was in to how much traffic I was getting and how I was going to get sponsors. Fast forward to today and the blog is very different. I no longer feel the stress about posting every day and I am only sharing things that I really connect with. It has allowed me to share me and be even more creative and the response and support has been awesome. I don’t check my traffic daily and I’m not looking to get my numbers high enough to attract sponsors. I’m just having fun.
So when I got an email the other day that said my blog was chosen for the Circle of Mom’s Top 25 Party Blogs I just sort of blew it off. But then Jenny was talking about it so I decided to look at it. I’m not sure what to make of it. It is super cool that I was chosen (somehow) to be in the company of 24 other amazing blogs. I’m not pushing the voting as I know that I can’t go up against the best of the best, like Hostess Blog, TomKat Studio and Celebrations at Home. And it seems that there are WAY more than 25 blogs up there now. It may just be an amazing marketing tool for Circle of Moms but one thing I have taken away from it is there are some cool blogs out there that I didn’t know about. So head over, click around, vote if you want and find some new cool people.
Here are some of my new faves:
