Mommy and Chase doing press at The Baby Show in Manhattan
This past weekend Chase and I had the pleasure of attending The Baby Show NYC on behalf of Mom Fuse, an online magazine and resource for moms where I'm a contributing Mommy Blogger. It was an informative and fun-filled day and we left with bags and bags of free goodies! We spent the day with my fellow blogger/gal pal Nikki (@ EuphoriaLuv) and her cutie-patootie little tot, Daniel. For a recount of events from The Baby Show you can head on over to MomFuse.com to check out my featured post.
So as you know I'm continually looking for new ways to better my blog and make it more reader-friendly, in terms of content as well as style. With that said here are recent site updates:
♥ I noticed via my nifty little Lijit widget that popular searches on my blog are:
hair progress pictures
hair progress photos
how to con-wash hair
july hair regimen
olive oil relaxer
on the road again
Well dern!!! While this is of course my mommy/baby blog, you all know I also love to talk hair/beauty/self-care and all things girly. I've struggled with finding the balance between blogging about new motherhood and also blogging personal care – not wanting to over-saturate and subsequently bore anyone with too much of either.
Yet it seems that many folks who visit are actually enjoying the beauty talk (namely the hair stuff) sooo… I guess I'll feel free to continue sharing my post-partum hair updates and other tips. Hey, if hair is what you want, hair is what you'll get – I believe in giving the people what they want! (lol)
♥ Does anyone care about my Friday Recipe Exchange? I ask because I tend to get very few comments on those posts (and minimal click-throughs via FeedBurner). If no one is interested I'll simply discontinue that little section (lol).
I've included a poll below so you can vote. *shrug* Feel free to be candid as all votes are anonymous. Depending on the results of this poll I'll decide to keep it going or give it the axe. Trust me, I'm totally cool with doing either. *smile*
♥ This update isn't "new" so much as I hadn't mentioned it just yet. In the left sidebar module you'll see that I've added a Networked Blogs widget. If you're a member of the Facebook or Networked Blogs community I'd love it if you would become a follower of The Prissy Mommy Chronicles and, of course, if you're a fellow blogger I'd be delighted to return the favor and make a new blogger friend.
♥ Omg, uber excited about Blogalicious 2009… just four days away and counting down! Derek, Chase, and I are headed down to HOTlanta (okay, probably COLDlanta right about now) for the conference and I just.can't.wait. Be prepared for lots and lots of blog coverage with pics and videos! I'm going to do my best to post in segments, as events occur, so you don't have one looong dissertation-length post to read upon my return – that's no fun, right? lol
♥ And speaking of conferences… you may have noticed that I recently added a BlogHer 2010 button to the right sidebar module! That's right folks, BlogHer is hitting the streets of The Big Apple and I‘d love to attend the conference. I was sad that I missed BlogHer 2009 but no excuses for the next conference right in my own backyard! *smile*
I'm seeking sponsors to help defray the costs of registration and other conference-related expenses. Right now I'm working on a short video just introducing myself to companies and explaining how fantastic it would be to work with me and why. *smile* So… be on the look out for that!
