You’re all waiting aren’t you!

You’re on the edge of your chairs wondering who won? Was it the vagina touching or the penis drag? Was it the nose pickers or the booby feeler?

Well, you will soon find out.

After a post.

A post about bloggers, blogging, and blog love.

I’m a relatively new blogger, I know, shocking!

Almost six months.

I adore the supportive community that is this writing world, I appreciate the encouragement and assistance from people I have met and I value the friendships I have made.

I have been lucky to not be a victim of online bullying to the extent that others have and I firmly believe we should build each other up, not tear each other down.

Recently, with the arrival of Klout, I’ve been reading a lot of posts, from new and seasoned bloggers, regarding their numbers, comments, Google Friend Connect, and now, their Klout scores.  They’re reaching out to one another for advice on how to maximize their social media reach, how to read more blogs, and how to get more comments.

These numbers games are poo stew for me!

I don’t look at my blog stats and the only reason I go to Klout is because I like to spread the love.

I never stop reading someone’s blog because they don’t visit mine, I read them for what they write not because I have an expectation of a visit in return.

I blog for the love of the written word, the relationships I’m building, and for me!

The numbers aren’t important, your words are what matter.

OK.

Now onto the WINNER.

The winner receives a HAWT Estro-Tote from Lady Estrogen and their blog button on my site for TWO weeks!


Congratulations…..

MAMA MASH!!

You’re child pulls the dog around by the penis far too often, and we love you for it!

Email me your address and we’ll send you this fantastic bag (as soon as the postal strike is over).

I had no idea when I started this blog that I would meet the fantastic people that I have.

That I would feel such a sense of accomplishment

That I would learn to go with the flow and not to look at numbers

I had no idea how therapeutic it would be.

And?

I was not ready for the giddiness that would erupt from a blog award!

Thank you to Robin from Farewell Stranger!

She has presented me with the Versatile Blogger Award!

I’m supposed to list 7 things about myself, but I just did that when I received the Sylish Blogger Award.

I’m so not doing it again.

I will, however, present this award to some bloggers!

Surferwife – versatile? Oh yes…and hot! Like Whoa

Kimberly at All Work and no Play Make Mommy Go Something Something – Kim writes about her PPD honestly, she’s relatable and she’s HIGHlarious. Go get you some!

Lady Estrogen – umm…go see! Read her blog…she’s plenty versatile

Galit BreenThese Little Waves. Galit takes my breath away with each post. She’s a writer I look up to.

Carri from Adventures in Mommyhood –  Versatile and has a killer left hook so watch your throats…mmmmmmmk?

I’m Stylin’

Guys!

I’m standing at the podium.

My hands are shaking, the spotlight is shining in my eyes, my spanks are so tight I might faint.

I didn’t prepare a speech because I was SURE that tramp Angelina would win AGAIN this year.

Guess what?

I WON!

Amy over at Spread a Little Thin presented me with this award and I’m bursting with appreciation.

But.

There are rules.

1. Forward on the Award to 10 other Bloggers

2. Tell you 7 random things about myself

3. Charge a $5 fee for the information.

Okay that last one I made up.

Here’s the deal.

I have already been the recipient of this Award once before. I KNOW RIGHT! So I don’t want to bore you with 7 annoying things about myself.

Wait?

Yes I do.

1. I hate the colour orange. I’m not kidding. No I won’t get over it.

2. I eat a tub of hummus more than once a week.

3. I never wear anything sleeveless because I hate my armpits.

4. I find a weak handshake frustrating. Like a dead fish. Strengthen that shit up.

5. I want to be the kind of parent to my daughter that my parents were to me. I’m afraid everyday that I won’t be.

6. I love being in a car. Driver/passenger whatever. The drive to the destination is the best part.

7. I am rarely intimidated.

Now… onto the 10 bloggers.

I am going to cheat.

What?

Yeah, I so am. Sorry, Quality not Quantity people.

Because she’s my sister from another mister and I love everything she writes Leigh Ann from The Twin Spin

When I go crazy I go to her for comfort, Chantelle from Mom Went Crazy

She is part of the “Pack of Leeanne’s” but her name is Kelly and she can write so go see her at Dances With Chaos

A dedicated writer who’s passion shines through in her words, Leanne from Ironic Mom

A woman who’s words blow me away each time I read her blog Jessica from Four Plus an Angel

And one of my very first blog friends and supports, Robin from the beautiful blog Farewell Stranger

Thanks again to Amy!

I am flattered.

Hey Guys!!!

Welcome to my WordPress Blog!

I’m all giddy over here! I’ve been wanting to move my blog for a LONG time (okay for a month) but trying to find the time was hard.

As you can see I found time and locked myself in the bathroom asked my family for some “me” time to make the move.

It’s going to be a learning curve so bear with me.

 

Some housekeeping:

As you can see there are no comments on my blog posts. That’s because the platform I came from is not advanced AT ALL and did not offer any type of assistance by means of transfering my posts and comments over. I did it myself. To see the comments you can go back over to my old blog.

If you can think of any helpful hints for me please leave me a comment. I love to hear how other people learned quickly.

YAY new BLOG!!!

Leighann 🙂

I’m all giddy!!

Ohh What Did I Start

01/04/2011

My new years resolution, something I never make, was to start a Blog (okay and to discover if the Slap Chop is really all I need to dice, chop, and mince in seconds.), I have been on Twitter for awhile and can see the interest in Blogs and think it would be a great venture.
Now would be a great time to mention my anxiety and OCD. Starting a Blog with a 9 month old ransacking your house, a husband leaving every piece of paper he finds in his pockets all over the floor for said baby to put in her mouth, and the bulimic cat barfing everywhere isn’t an easy process. A blog on a good day isn’t an easy process.
So I made a list.. because that’s what a multitasker does, we make lists, I waited until the baby was napping and I tackled the Blog, and then I accidentally deleted it, and then I threw things and screamed.. and then I promptly picked those “things” up and rearranged my cupboards.
So… now, January 4th, 4 days in and I’m typing my first Blog post. I can definitely say there is relief that I’ve come this far. I’m excited to share my stories of parenting, post partum, anxiety, and relationship blunders with the world (all 4 of you)… hang in you might like what you read, maybe even laugh a little!!
