Over The Moon

Over the moon might not even fully express how excited I am today, but it’s pretty close.

When I started blogging, I thought I’d try it out, see how it went, and give it a go. In all honesty, I didn’t think anybody would read it. It would just be my own little place of rambling, and if I got really lucky, I might meet some online friends.

I have gained so much more. I have met some amazing writers, found writing communities that stun me with their talent, and delighted in the joy of online communication with wonderful people.

And the weird part? People are not just reading this blog, they actually seem to like it! I am giddy with excitement. This blog thing? Might actually work out.

I am honored to share with you two blogs that have featured some amazing writers this week, and am beyond excited to say that I am mentioned! Twice!

I found Jennifer through the Yeah Write community. I have been so thrilled with the talent there, and love Jen’s contributions. She just posted April’s Best, a collection of wonderful writers and posts that will make you think and laugh. Here, she mentions my post Get Over It. Head on over to check out this collection of bloggers. They are all worth a read.

I’m not sure exactly how I came across Kristen of What She Said, but I am oh so glad I did. Fellow Richmond dwellers with toddlers, we live in similar worlds. I love her humor and honesty, and she made me a life long fan with her post The Road to One and Done. I have also loved following her on Twitter and getting to know her as a “real” person. Her words of encouragement have been so inspirational to me, and it was by her reassurance that I thought, “maybe I really could be good at this blog thing.” I am truly touched by the sweet comments she made about me in her post Friday Tapas: The Lite Edition, and her mention of my recent post, Life Lessons From the Toddler. Head on over and get to know the fabulous Kristin!

And just for a little more shameless self promotion, I wanted to let you know that I finally jumped on the bandwagon and made a Facebook page for Elated Exhaustion. Come on over and “like” it. You would make my day. http://www.facebook.com/elatedexhaustion I even updated my social media buttons so you can get to the page from there, too.

Thank you all for your support. I am so honored.

Have a great weekend!
