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:
FAVORITES : 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.
SPONSORS : 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
CONTEST 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 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…
