Imagine my surprise!
I'm not always the best about keeping up with my email. Yesterday, I was slowing plowing my way through the backlog when I ran across an email entitled, OW. To show you how much of a technical geek I can be, I was checking my email from my cell phone, since I have no access to Yahoo from work.

I almost deleted the email I'm about to reference, thinking it was spam. Imagine my surprise when I read the following:


Way to go! You are now a 'Top 100 Mom Blogger'!

The staff at searched through the 'momosphere' and found your blog to be of exceptional quality.

The Top 100 Mom Blog Awards page lists all 100 winners. Take a look here:

The Mother’s Day Central Top 100 Mom Blogs Awards

You may proudly display an award button anywhere on your website.

Let me know if you have any questions at all, and CONGRATULATIONS!

Daniel Kovach

Truth be told, I'd never heard of Mother's Day Central or Daniel Kovach, but tell me I've bnee voted on to some list and you can bet I won't be able to resist checking it out!

My blog has never made it on a top "whatever" list until now. Truthfully, I'm flattered and honored to be listed with so many big-name bloggers! Thanks, Mother's Day Central!

So, go check and see if your blog (or another blogger that you know and love) made it on the list. You know you want to! :)

One last thought, It's my 1 year blog anniversary!

My blog began with this post. This past year has been so much fun! I've met a lot of fabulous bloggers, gained new insights from each of you, and truly enjoyed the feedback generated from my posts. Thanks to all of you who take the time to read my blog!

Many of you have expressed an interest in knowing my first name. In honor of my 1 year blog anniversary, I'm going to disclose my first name to those who request it.

If you'd like to know my first name (if you don't already), leave me a comment with your email address and I'll email you my first name. But, just to warn you, I still won't be using my name on my blog, in an effort to protect my family's privacy.

Happy Easter weekend!
