Wow! It was one year ago that I made the decision to launch Mom Endeavors! After years of having a very private family blog (I didn’t want my high school students to have easy internet access to all kinds of details about our family) and years of reading all kinds of other blogs, I decided to create my own public space–a place to share all those things I do that the grandparents aren’t necessarily interested in (they just want pictures/stories about the kids)! 😉
I wasn’t sure how it would go; I wasn’t sure if anyone but the handful of friends & family members who read the other site would ever see it; I wasn’t even sure about all things I would write about (in fact, when I originally started I thought it might be about a lot of couponing stuff!)! So, I’m beyond thrilled with that I’ve found a whole variety of endeavors that I like writing about and everything that’s happened as a result! Here are some of my favorite posts from the past year:
Then, there’s an extra special place in my heart for the Magazine Bows since it was my very first tutorial post! And, my most personal & heartfelt post was actually a series on “When Breastfeeding Doesn’t Work“–something on my heart that I felt compelled to share and based on the comments, I am so glad that I did!
So, most importantly, THANK YOU for reading! A blog isn’t much without readers and I so appreciate you stopping by my little nook of the blogosphere and commenting, encouraging, & sharing!!
When I published that first little post a year ago, I could have never imagined all the fun things that have happened! I’ve learned SO much, had amazing opportunities to work with some fantastic companies and cool products, and most special…met some amazing people–some of whom I am so glad to now call my friends! And, it just so happens that some of these awesome people also happen to have some great products!!
So, to celebrate this BIG blogging milestone and as a great BIG THANK YOU to you for reading, we’re having a BIG giveaway! And, what’s extra special about this giveaway is that everything featured is from ladies that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting solely because of this blog! Had I not launched the site, I wouldn’t have come in to contact with these fabulous gals and their fun products!!
Since this giveaway is extra-special, it’s going to run a bit differently than the ones I normally do! There will be ONE winner of all the products–valued at $150!!
