d-list blog party!

Monday, May 17, 2010

Since I'm still pretty new the the blogging community I'm always looking for ways to find new blogs to follow and meet new bloggers. I just discovered D-Listed Mom Blogs and am loving the concept. Unlike many other blogger communities, there's now vote competition here. D-Listed Mom Blogs is a support site where everyone can be listed, and they feature five blogs each day - at random so everyone has a chance! I've already found a couple great new blogs to follow! This week she's hosting a "blog hop" so all the members can mingle and get to know each other. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't yet!

So now a little bit about me. Some of you have been around for a while and know me well, so I apologize if this is old news. But some of you are still fairly new to my blog, and some are probably stopping by for the first time. So here's a cheat sheet for catching up.

I'm a 20-something Christian from the Midwest. Marketing specialist by day, blogger by night. I have been 'family' blogging since 2008, but just recently decided to venture into the 'public' realm of blogging.

I have been married for two and a half years to my best friend, and we absolutely adore being married!
We love living life together, traveling, spontaneous planning, sleeping in on Saturdays … You get the picture – we’re fully enjoying being in our mid-twenties and not being responsible for anyone other than ourselves.

Then a few months ago we asked the question, “Do we or do we not end our perfectly, self-centered lives by adding a sweet bundle of joy to the mix?”
You can read the rest of that story here.

Well, needless to say the answer to that question was "Yes!" And after only two months, I was so excited to post this wordless wednesday, and give this explanation. I'm blogging about the whole adventure, and hoping to find a few friends along the way, as I wait for my Thanksgiving baby!

Every Tuesday I post a weekly update to document my pregnancy. In between I post about special moments and feelings that I never want to forget!

In order to be completely transparent, I have decided to keep my blog anonymous for the time being. To understand why I made this choice, check out this post.

Thanks for stopping by! Leave a comment and I'll be sure to come check out the party going on at your blog as well!

Congratulations on the pregnancy. I can't wait to meet more. When I was pregnant I hated it but now I miss it. Enjoy every single moment of it and share so that those of us whose husband's won't give us another can live through your pregnancy.

New follower from the D-List party! Congratulations on your pregnancy! No more kids for me, so I enjoy following others on their journey to becoming a mom.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I completely understand why you decided to go anonymous with your blog. It actually must be more freeing because you can write anything and not worry about someone you know reading it and judging. Love the concept! I'll be following!

Popping in from the d-list party. Love your blog title and congrats on the wee babe!

I don't blame you for keeping it anonymous. It's amazing how much you sensor yourself if you know your grandma is reading (My grandma does not read my blog, thankfully, just an example! I'd probably be disinherited if she did). Following you on your preggers journey now. Feel free to complain if you need to, it serves as good birth control! lol. :)

Stopping in from the blog party. Sigh...I remember reading what size fruit my baby resembled when I was pregnant! I kind of miss that. I would tell everyone...she's a grape, she's an orange, she's a watermelon!! Enjoy and good luck!
