A Year Later

Today is my anniversary. It's been one year since I started The Deliberate Mom. I must admit, I never imagined how much I would learn and gain from this blogging adventure.

  • I have met so many wonderful people.
  • I have seen so many creative projects.
  • I have salivated over many scrumptious recipes.
  • I have been challenged to dig deeper and to share some of my innermost feelings.
  • I have witnessed the joy of new life and have wept along with those suffering a loss.
  • I have enjoyed the journey of life with so many other moms.
  • Lastly, this blogging world has taught me that everyone has a story to write and words to share.
Some little tidbits about my blog:

  • I completed my degree in June of 2010. Since I love to write I decided to join millions of other writers in the blogging community. I immediately fell in love with the gratification that came with clicking the "publish" button. 
  • I actually started with a different blog in June 2010, but it involved too much wine and I was concerned I would end up being an alcohol dependent writer.
  • My first Deliberate Mom posting was published on September 12, 2010.
  • To date, I have published 215 posts.
  • I have 4 draft posts just waiting to be finished.
  • I have 103 wonderful followers on Google Friend Connect and numerous followers outside of GFC.
  • There's been 532 comments published to my blog.
  • My most popular posting to date is The Best Board Books (1393 page views).
What a fun year this has been! Thank you for reading and thank you for being on this journey with me. I look forward to many more years of reading, writing, and connecting with you!
