On March 29, 2011, I published my first post (which I shall not link because frankly, it was crap) with the intention of being a one-woman shopping guide for moms.
Yes, that is how Mama Wants This! started – as a go-to place for moms looking for fun, fashionable and value-for-money items for their babies, toddlers and themselves.
That lasted for about 10 posts or two weeks, I forget.
I was very diligent in looking for communities when I started blogging. Through that, I found various blogs who hosted writing prompts and started doing those.
Shopping posts were forgotten. An online journal of motherhood, pregnancy, toddler tales and general mayhem emerged. I’m even dabbling in photography and recipe sharing. In December, I started collaborating with a wonderful fellow blogger on our exciting monthly Memories Captured linkup AND working with brands!
To say that MWT and I have come a long way is an understatement.
In celebration of my first year in blogging, I’m teaming up with fellow 1st blogiversary celebrant, Ado of The Momalog to co-host Blog Bash!
For Blog Bash, we ask you to link up your favorite post of all time. It could be something you wrote last week, or two years ago. All it has to be is that it’s a post YOU love. Ado and I promise to read each and every linked up post (and if you close comments after a certain period, consider opening comments on the post you link up to get some comment love). You can add the Blog Bash button on your old post and do a little intro as to why it’s your favorite, or write a new post with your old post below it, as an update. Any way you like it, we’ll read it!
What’s a celebration without goodies, eh? And goodies we have!
We have FIVE generous sponsors who will be giving *five lucky linkers the following prizes:
Storkie, who has been creating stylish invitation and announcement cards for 21 years, is sponsoring a $50 gift card.
yeah write, a fantastic blogger’s community (where I found and met many wonderful writers early on in blogging), is sponsoring a WordPress theme.
Swank, a full service web design studio, is sponsoring a mini blog makeover.
The Blog Bash linkup is from March 26 to 30, so grab a button from my sidebar and come back to link up your favorite post of all time!!
*Winners will be chosen via random.org.
Ado and I are beyond excited and thrilled to be celebrating together, and with you. We look forward to reading your favorite posts!
This is an incredibly crazy and fun month for me – next week is the monthly Memories Captured link up (linky opens March 19 at 12.01 AM EST) with Galit of These Little Waves, so do link up for that as well, we have a fantastic sponsor, Bellflower Books who’s generously giving THREE $100 books!)
