No-Go BlogHer Blog HopSunday, August 01, 2010
Thanks to to Stacie from Simply Stacie, I came across this awesome blog hop created for bloggers who cannot attend the BlogHer conference this week. This blog hop is such a great idea and I'm really looking forward to participating in it. Sure, there are a number of prizes up for grabs (and Canadians are eligible to win most of them!) But there will also be a wonderful opportunity to meet new bloggers, too.
The No-Go BlogHer Blog Hop is being hosted by Stefany and Maya from To Be Thode and Musings of a Marfan Mom. To take part in this blog hop, all you need to do is answer a few questions about your blog and add the No-Go Blog Hop button to your sidebar.
Here are the questions you need to answer:
1. When did you start blogging?
I started blogging during my first maternity leave back in February of 2006.
2. Why did you start blogging?
The reason I began blogging was to record memories and special milestones in my daughter's life and to share them with family and friends. It was also a great way to connect with other moms in similar situations and to seek out much-needed advice as a first-time mom.
3. What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
This week, I plan on taking my kids to the Toronto Zoo. My son loves riding on the train and my daughter goes nuts at the splash pad. I just go plain nuts.
4. Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite.
I have gone through some of my older posts and thought it was fitting to select this one that I had written a little over four years ago.
It focuses on my daughter, the original motivation behind my blog. It's a touching memory and I am forever grateful to have it as part of my online journal. I hope that one day, my daughter will enjoy reading through this and other posts. And maybe even share them with her own children...
