Enter singing telegram in silly costume.

"Announcement. Announcement. Announcement."

Yes, my friends, I have a few announcements to make.

No, I'm not pregnant again...if that's what you are thinking.

These are busy-ness announcements:

favoritesFAVORITES : Looking for some new & fabulous bloggers to add to your RSS feed? Check out my "Favorites" page. These are all blogs hand-selected by me because I like the style, tone, theme, and/or person behind the blog. I don't do link exchanges so these are the "real deal." I just made some updates. "Out with the old, in with the new," as they say. I bet you'll like these blogs as much as I do. Go ahead, take a peek.

advertise-hereSPONSORS : Have you noticed my sponsors over there on my right sidebar? If not, please do. Usborne creates imaginative, interactive, and educational books. Snikiddy is a purveyor of yummy, healthy snacks. Spiffies help you keep your baby's teeth clean. Preggie Pops quell morning sickness. And Camano Island Coffee Roasters is a family company that sells fresh roasted, fairly traded, organic coffee from around the world  - delivered right to your doorstep. Thanks for clicking over when you get a chance. Also, if you have a company, product, or website that you'd like to promote, check out my "Advertise" page or e-mail me at [email protected].

and the winner isCONTEST WINNERS : You probably have noticed that I don't dedicate exclusive posts to announcing contest winners. That's because I find those posts to be rather boring and not relevant to the majority. If you ever want to know the winner of a particular contest, just check back to the original post and the winner will be posted at the very bottom. Winners are also notified by e-mail. Please note that it usually takes approximately two weeks for me to pick and post contest winners. I'm not SheWoman, after all. I'm a mama who works from 9pm - 1:30am - at a frenzied pace.

survey_says_blog-300x300SURVEY RESULTS : Thanks to everyone who took my annual reader demographics survey. In case you're wondering, here are a few of the stats:

  • 96% of MM readers are women
  • 91% are moms or moms-to-be
  • 84% are between 20-40 years old
  • 95% read blogs regularly
  • 84% have a Facebook account
  • 50% have a Twitter account
  • 93% shop online
  • 35% have purchased something as a result of a Metropolitan Mama review
  • Most Popular Column: Themed Weekends (followed by Tuesday Tours)

Speaking of Themed Weekends, I'll be announcing a new one soon. Stay tuned...

  1. Lots of great favorites and sponsors. I think it's great how you choose to do the contest winners. You're blog is actually one of my favorites and I'm not a mama, well I am but a step mom of two older kids (26 and 24) but I still enjoy reading what you have here.

  2. thank you for including me on your favorites! :)
    and I really like your contest winner announcement policy, it makes so much sense to just add it to the original post!

    have a great weekend!
