A few things...
I'm making a few changes to my SLY Awards program based on your feedback and my experience. Going forward, I'll have a SLY winner every week or two, but each winner will receive 1-2 products/prizes. 1-2 posts is much more do-able and then I don't have to dilute my content with too much brand stuff. Perfect, right? PLUS, I can honor + celebrate more golden-hearted people this way.
In other news, Metropolitan Mama has a Facebook page (and a facebook button on the left sidebar - thanks, Tim!). I'm going to start automatically having my tweets appear on my FB page so if you've always wondered what kind of wonderful stuff I post on Twitter, now you can find out without being on Twitter (even though, you really should consider starting a twitter account). Plus, watch for exclusive contests and cool discussions happening there.
I'm running in a 5K this Saturday. Wish me luck and strong lungs and perseverance and all that. I haven't been running regularly so this could be interesting. It's all for a good cause though (the local school district) and there are jumping castles at the finish line. Fun.
I've been doing some brainstorming/preliminary planning for an AZ blogger meetup - something casual and friendly and fun. Want to be there? Be sure to make yourself known so that I can send you an invite when that time comes. I'd love to meet you.
Last, but certainly, not least...I want to say THANK YOU for your comments. Did you know I read every single one of them? Always. And they make me so happy. Like this kind-of happy:
That's my 3-year-old (on the right) and her adorable cousin (on the left). It looks like they're sharing secrets. Speaking of which, I still have an announcement to make - but it's not quite ready yet. Coming...
*UPDATE* The announcement is not baby-related. ;)
