Random Bits of Wonderfulness

A few things...

Random Bits of Wonderfulness 1I'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.

Random Bits of Wonderfulness 2In 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.

Random Bits of Wonderfulness 3I'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.

Random Bits of Wonderfulness 4I'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. ;)

  1. Like the random bits of wonderfulness: You were great at the race, I'd love to be invited to the AZ blog event (guess I should start a blog first, hunh;)- ever the procrastinator, the picture of the girls is ADORABLE, and can't wait for the secret (!!!)- I was sure it was baby #3 until your "non-baby related" comment. Thanks for keeping us guessing...

  2. Love the picture! Is your announcement that you are doing a world tour? You guys should come and do national race weekend here in Ottawa... I hear the organization is pretty awesome.

  3. Isn't it funny that when you're of a certain age everyone assumes the word "announcement" means you're pregnant. Ha! I love it though.

    I hope the 5K went well. I'll look for a report!

  4. Oh, I wish I was doing the 5K with you. Perhaps next time. The picture is so cute, they look so very happy!

  5. Good Luck on the 5k! I hope I can run one within the next couple of months. You are an inspiration, :-)

    Looking forward to hearing the news!

  6. First, best of luck in the 5K...no matter what the finish, I'm proud of you!

    Second, congrats on the FB page!

    I can't wait to hear the news!!

  7. I love the SLY and I think the way you plan to continue is a wonderful idea. You reward those you choose with a few goodies without clogging your blog up with JUST those posts. I think its a perfect compromise. Can't wait to "meet" the person you choose next.

    I'll join up on Facebook next time I log in. And I'll be sure I am already following you on Twitter.

    Good Luck at the run! That is very exciting. I hope you do well.

    Not in AZ -- boo. But sounds like it would be a fun time for all those who are! Hope it goes well.

    And Thank you for your comments. I love that you are real about it all and that you return the favor when you can.

    That picture of your daughter is so freaking cute! I love that skirt too.

    Oh and -- I love your addition of "Not baby related" LOL! Can't wait to hear the news.

  8. You will do great at your race....no luck needed! I am going to start running again, maybe we can run in a race together:)

    I am looking forward to your announcement!! I love when good things happen to GREAT people!

  9. Just became a fan on Facebook :) Good luck in your race. And that picture is priceless...looks like it should be on a greeting card or something!

  10. Good luck with your race! So funny that you said the comment was not baby related because you know every single reader probably went there first...haha! But can't wait to hear what it is!

  11. Oooh I'll be at that 5K too! Thanks so much for supporting our district! I'm sure you'll do great!
    I will be most likely be walking as my double stroller isn't a runner. Excited about all the family friendly stuff there!
    Looking forward to your announcement :)

  12. Good luck with your 5K! How exciting I so admire people who can do that, God did not give me a want or the ability to be athletic =) but I love watching people do it. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be a part of the blogger convention so sign me up girl!

  13. Good luck on the 5K! What an inspiration! I can't even run to the end of the driveway! The picture is adorable and I can't wait to hear your announcement:)

  14. Wish I was in AZ...
    And still thinking about my 5K in the fall. You inspire me.
    Can't wait for your announcement!

  15. I wished I live in AZ, I would love to attend.

    Have a blast at the 5K run, be sure to drink a lot of fluids. Goodluck

  16. Ha! I love that you updated that the announcement is not baby-related!! It WAS crossing my mind :)

    It's nice not to have to talk brands all day even though the quality of the brands you rate are really great!

    Congrats on the FB page, I use that much more than twitter...but I think it's because so many of my friends are there and not on twitter (they don't have blogs either). It's funny....some people I see 3 times a week but I still love to see their status updates!

    Good luck in the 5K, I'm sure you will do great!

    Wish the blogger meet-up included So Cal, I'd be there! ;)

    That picture is frame-worthy for sure, I love all the colors!

    (Wow this is a long comment!)

    Have a great weekend :)

  17. Oh I can't wait to hear about the announcement!! I want to say baby, but I'm not sure...hmm...I guess I'll have to wait! :)

    Good luck in your 5K. You are an inspiration to me!

  18. I love that you read your comments...and I can testify that you do! That is how we 'met' and began our friendship...so thank you for taking the time to do so. Looking forward to meeting more SLY winners and hearing all about your 5K. Great job!!

    We will be waiting on pins and needles for your announcement! I already want to say congratulations...whatever it is!! Congratulations!!

  19. You'll do great in your race! With as much running as you do to prepare :)
    Can't wait for the announcement!
