I just finishes listening to the David Snape show and I have to say: It’s a very interesting feeling to hear your post being read out loud. It simply put a big smile on my face as the way he read it was simply put beautiful!
I’m not sure about you but while I type I kind of hear the words in my mind. So of course it sounds very different to hear my post being read by someone else. This has been an amazing experience and I’m very grateful for the chance to have been on his show. It made me realize how the posts “sound” to someone else and that was very humbling…
Don’t worry, parents, I’ m not talking about that kind of why. Although, I could probably fill a couple of posts about the “whys” we get asked over the time we look after our children… which is kind of forever. No, these whys are different. Just check it out:
Am I good enough? How often have I ask myself that question! Am I a good enough mother, a good enough wife, a good enough friend, a good enough daughter, a good enough woman, a good enough human being?
I think it’s probably the most difficult question to answer. And no matter what everyone else says, you will always have doubts. You will continue to ask yourself if you are really good enough.
There’s many more areas in my life where I have asked myself if I am good enough. The list would be a very long one if I would mention every single one of them. This here will be about one area of my life, and guess what: It’s not about being a mom!
Today is kind of like my happy day. First Jason with his amazing review and then this as well! Well, I found out about both of it yesterday actually, but writing about it and now posting it (after an amazing walk along the beach) made it so real. I can’t stop smiling to be honest.
Thank you so much, Rob, for nominating me for the Respect Award! I feel very honored to have been part of your list and I have lots and lots of respect for you and what you blog about as well!
Here is what Rob says about this award:
“The “Respect” Award is my personal award for fellow bloggers who consistently reach out to other bloggers, offer support, are kind, struggle to understand differences in people, and who treat themselves and other people with kindness and respect.
You don’t have to do anything for this award.
You can choose to copy the Award Picture and give the award to the people who have earned your respect or you can do nothing.
This is my way of saying thank you. You have earned my respect.”
I would like to list a couple of bloggers that have earned my respect for their constant support:
But I smile anyway… (I know you have been nominated already…)
Nutsrok (I know you’ve been nominated too…)
My Self Evident Truths
All In A Dad’s Work
Me – Who Am I?
Just Plain Ol’Vic
But to be honest, each an everyone who is reading this right now deserves my respect as well. Thank you so much for visiting on such a regular base and liking and commenting so often (yes you! I know I did not list you but you are here again, reading this and definitely deserve this special award as well!)
So this is an honest THANK YOU for all of you!!!
Jason over at HarsH ReaLiTy has a great thing going. You should really head over and check it out. He is reviewing blogs and posting the reviews on his blog. If you are keen to get your blog reviewed you can actually contact him as well via email and he might add you to the mix. I found out about it because he approached me which already made me super happy. Happy but also a bit nervous. After all it’s a review done by someone who know what he’s talking about.
So I started shaking in my flipflops (which I mentioned to him) and that then lead to brainstorming about which one of the two actually makes the flip and which one makes the flop sound… I have not found the answer just yet but as the summer is only just starting over here I will have plenty of time to figure that one out…
So there I was, nervously awaiting the review of my blog…
And when I finally got to read his review about my blog I was over the moon (and still am frankly…)
Here are the links to the reviews he’s done so far:
Review 2Review 3
Knowing Jason and the speed he writes posts there’s probably a fifth review up and running by the time I post this. So keep your eyes open when visiting his site.
They are worth checking out. I’ve found some great blogs I decided to follow now by reading his short review and visiting them.
I can’t believe it’s a year today. One year of A Momma’s View! What a year it was…
Time flies by, right? I feel like this first year blogging went by so fast. I was thinking a lot about this post. About what I wanted it to be. But just like my blog it’s slightly different than what I pictured it to be.
Hitting that publish button usually feels pretty easy to me although I know that I should wait and read my post again in order to find some mistakes. There are some post I’ve written though, which I hesitated pressing publish. In a way it scared me knowing that I’m about to put this specific thought out there and was worried about the feedback I’d get. I’ve also deleted a couple of posts simply because I knew they would stir things up or reach someone who I didn’t want to read my thoughts on that subject via Facebook.
I can’t believe that it will soon be a year since this blog came to life. A year of daily posting and connecting with inspiring people all over this planet. I know it’s early, as it’s not a proper anniversary just yet. But I figured I might celebrate already today. Celebrate in the form of reflecting on what this blog is all about and what it was intended to be about. Maybe even thinking about how I would introduce me today, almost a year after I’ve introduced myself to my readers for the first time.
I’m confused. Confused about the “info” I get from my stats here on WordPress. I wonder if anyone can explain this to me. When I check out the stats, just to get an idea about where my views come from, I usually don’t get much info out of the Search Terms (as usually it says “unknown”). I think it’s awesome to see which search engines were used but does it really matter if it was Google Search and from which country?
I get that it’s interesting to see which country looks you up, but then that should be visible in “Countries”, right? And now to my initial question: How can it be, that a search term can be “unknown”? I mean, obviously someone types something and finds my blog. So how come it’s unknown?
Anyway… not that it matters. I was just wondering why certain (and truly weird) search terms show up and others are unknown.
I thought it’s time for a little meet and greet at my place again. This time there are no limits, no most inspiring or any of that. Just share the post you want to share or even just a link to your Home or About page. The only requirement I have is: If your blog is ‘naughty’ please mention it. And: My blog is a peaceful place, please keep it that way.
I can’t wait to read heaps of posts I might have missed. And feel free to share with your followers so we might get some new bloggers over here. New bloggers always mean new inspiration!
Now let’s have some fun 🙂
