10,000 Maniacs?

Guess what?

I checked in on this blog this morning to see if the new favicon (handprint icon that appears to the left of the url or in your favorites list, hint hint) I had made was visible on my iPhone.  I scanned the page, noticing a few things I wanted to tweak, and then I saw it.

There, at the bottom of the page, was my total pageviews and I was astonished to see the number it listed.

It has been almost 3 months to the day since I started this blog, and it feels like I've been doing it forever.  I never would have expected to enjoy it so much or to find so much camaraderie with other mothers who have a "Cael" or a "Graham".

So I just wanted to say "Thank You" for continuing to read.  Let's make a deal, okay?  As long as you keep reading, I'll keep writing.  How long do you think it will take to hit 25K?  Any guesses?

So I hope you will still consider voting for me in the Parents magazine Best Blog Awards.  Two big-hitters in my category have an unattainable number of votes, but I would like to keep my presence known on that first page sand my foot in the door for the Editor's Pick.

If you haven't voted, click VOTE NOW or click the pink button at the top right of my blog and cast your vote.  You will need to provide an email address, but I hope you'll consider my request. 

I also hope you'll take a peek at today's earlier post "Chalk of the Town" about our less than artistic endeavors this past weekend.  You'll be glad you did.


  1. Well, I've had my current blog for exactly one year now and just recently hit 30,000....so I'm guessing you'll hit 25,000 in a month or so because your blog is way funnier! :-) Plus as you know, many of my hits are from people looking for "grandma and grandpa having fun" LOL


  2. Shawna- Your blog is great too, it just has a different focus! I love looking at your Etsy stuff, too! I'd be stoked if I hit 25K in a month, but I'm putting my guess in for the beginning of November.


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
