In 2011, I went to BlogHer, a blogging conference for women. A few weeks after the event, Stokke contacted me to tell me I had won a Tripp Trapp high chair at the event. You would have thought I won the lottery. It was one of the only times I can remember actually winning anything. It was a great feeling and we needed it!
Last night, I was catching up on email, I noticed an unfamiliar subject line from a publication I regularly read. It said, “Your blog Growing Up Goofy has been nominated to the Top 25 NorCal Moms – 2013 list on Circle of Moms.” I was amazed. Amazed that someone thought about me in a way that makes me proud to be labeled “mom blogger.” I had the same feeling last night that I had when I had one the high chair. It was awesome.
I’ve been blogging for a long time. My first blog, Doug and Cam, started in 2005 when we were planning our wedding. Then I started Frugal Day in 2009. Now, Growing Up Goofy, has taken all the things I love and put them in one place. I’m honored to be nominated. It’s because of you, the readers who keep coming back, that I love to spend time here.
If you’d like to vote for me, visit Circle of Moms and click on Growing Up Goofy. You can vote once per day until August 13th.
