Exciting Blogging News

February 4, 2013

I’ve been writing this blog for over four years.

It started as a diary of our process about waiting to be approved to adopt again.

We found out just before Christmas of 2009 that we were going to become adoptive parents again, with a bit of a catch.  We would be fostering our new child until he was able to be adopted.  For the next year and a bit, I wrote about our journey through the foster to adopt process.  It had its highs and lows.

Since then, I have been writing about various slices of life.  I intended to keep it as a diary for future reference, and hopefully be of assistance in case anyone was interested.

There wasn’t much interest, until October of 2011.  Then, someone read my pasts.  All 150 or so at that point.  In one day.  I “met” a new friend i the blogging world, Instant Mama.

She wrote about her experience as a foster mother of six (!!!) children, which was about a year old at that point.  It went on for longer.

Her post today contained both good news and sad news.  The good is that she and her husband became the forever parents of five (!!!) children.   The sad news is that she will be taking a break from blogging as she bonds with her new children.  I completely understand and respect this wise decision.  However, I will miss the warmth, love, and passion that she shared for her kids.

I would encourage you to check out her blog, and her list of suggested sites.  My world has been expanded because of these blogs.

Blessings to Instant Mama and her new forever family of five.


Blogging stats and milestones

October 9, 2012

It has been a couple of weeks since the fourth anniversary of starting this blog.  (Correction from earlier post)

For a long time, it didn’t attract much traffic.

In the past few months, the lowest number of views was around 160 in August.

It is approaching 2,000 views.  Wow.

Blogging stats – mid August

August 17, 2012

In the past few months, there has been lots of traffic.

As of right now, there have been1,650 views.

Each month since February of this year, there have been more monthly views.  Halfway through August, there have been more view than there were in all of February.

It’s funny how blogging builds community.  It becomes a highlight of the day to check out new posts as soon as they are available.

Enjoy one of the last summer weekends of 2012.  Where has the year gone?

Have a good weekend!!
