Mom Blog Society

Since I've been becoming more serious about my blog I wanted to show off all my hard work to someone! I've been a member of Cafemom for years now, so of course I started there. I joined a few blogging groups, but they seemed to be more about self promotion than anything else. I was looking for more, but being so new to blogging I wasn't sure where to go. I did, however, get started with LinkReferral. This introduced me to some great blogs, and I got a few reviews from members. I was excited to see the increase in traffic, but I wanted quality over quantity. I wasn't really sure what my next step would be.

Then I got a comment from Mom Blog Society when I posted about the Farmers' Market. The comment said: "Oh how I love to go to a good farmers market. It looks like you had a GREAT time!. I would love for you to share you experience at the farmers market with our readers at I truly believe they will enjoy this read."

Well, I checked it out and let me tell you, I'm HOOKED!

Since Wednesday I've gained 6 followers (which for me at this point is almost double what I had!) to my blog and about 20 to Twitter. In 4 days! That's really exciting for a new blogger!

But aside from the traffic and new comments, I really feel like I've found a community to grow in. I'm a fan of groups so I joined a few, and it's nice to see familiar faces from one group to the next. There's a group for Twitter, a group for newbies, a group for comments, a group to get (and give) reviews, and so many more! I feel right at home there, asking questions and participating in button exchanges etc!

And I truly believe that some of the most helpful people on the planet are spending their time at MBS. I have learned how to make a button! I fixed the header that didn't want to sit in the middle of the page! I know that if I stick around I can bring my blog AND my blogging to the next level.
