Happy First Year!

Time flies when you're having fun blogging!

Call it a birthday, blogversary, or whatever you like...

Baby Mama Juice turns 1 today!
On July 23, 2012 I wrote my first official blog post.  Bless my little, naive, newbie heart. 

I had no idea what I was signing up for.  This blog world is something else.  I've enjoyed every crazy minute of it.  

These are my 5 most popular posts:

Pretty random.  You just never know what people are going to like.  Sometimes it's the most random post you slapped up because you had a million other things going on that day.  Sometimes the posts you slave over for hours get no attention at all.  Tis the world of blogging.

I'm still an itsy bitsy teeny weeny blogger, but I'm proud to say that I've hit over 93,000 pageviews.  

I attended a blog conference, guest posted on two wildly famous blogs here and here, and had 3 amazing blogger friends take over my blog (Christina, Caycee, and Natalie).  

I have a small community of loyal readers who have become my friends.

I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again and again until I'm blue in the face.

I appreciate every single person who reads this silly little blog.  You all give me the motivation to sit down and type out my thoughts every day.  

Thank you.

Cheers to a wonderful first year!


Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because my blog isn't the only thing that's getting older.  While at a play date last week, one of the (very young) moms looked at me with shock and horror (on her perfectly smooth, unwrinkled face) when I told her my age.  She replied "You look great for your age."  That, my friends, is what we call a complisult (compliment+insult). Getting older blows.
