Still Alive

“…Now these points of data
Make a beautiful line.
And we’re out of beta.
We’re releasing on time.”

That pretty much describe what I’ve been up too for the past week or so.

Nic and I have been working like mad on our BlogHer@Home site.  What is BlogHer@Home, you ask?  Well, first you have to know what BlogHer is.  Simply put it’s a community for women who blog. Every year they have a big conference that sells out.  Tickets are coveted, flaunted, and fought over.  This year it’s the place to be if you’re in Chicago on July 24/25.

Well, Nic and I aren’t going to BlogHer.  And that sucks.  Hearing people talk about it constantly was a total bummer until Nic came up with the brilliant idea of creating BlogHer@Home.  So we whipped up a site, and have been working to get our BlogHer@Home gals some AWESOME giveaways (can you say 5 pairs of pearl earrings and a new laptop five times really fast?  No, me neither.  But I do know where you can win both those things for free!)

In addition to keeping all that straight, I’ve been helping Heather and Megan get their Friends of Maddie site up.  This is a wonderful charity dedicated to the memory of Heather’s daughter, Madeline.  Their mission is to provide support to the families of critically ill babies in an effort to help ease the transition into NICU life and to be an ally until the end of their child’s hospital stay.  As a mom of a child who was in NICU and Special Care, I know how invaluable this support can be.  If you have a moment, please take the time to visit and support this important cause.

I’ll hopefully have another post up soon, assuming I can find time to write and be in bed before 1am.

Hugs to you all for all your wonderful love and support.  It really means the world to me.
