There's a Recession? Ah! Blog It!

So apparently there is some sort of recession going on and we should be doing some sort of economic stimulus. I don't really know much about it, since I avoid the news like the plague. But I hear it's happening, and it's affecting even the bloggers here in the blogosphere! It may even strike on of you--or, heaven forbid, ME!

But don't worry, there is a plan!

August is Blog the Recession month, hosted by Motherhood Uncensored!

What this means is that those of us who read blogs should actually visit the blogs. That's right, click off your reader/feed and get thee to the blog! And maybe even click around a bit. Check out other pages. Check out links. Those extra clicks might mean the difference to some poor, starving blogger. Even for those of us who don't have advertising (at least not yet), the extra page views and time on page can really mean a lot. If you are feeling crazy, you could even leave comments--I especially love the conversational aspect of blogging/comments.

As for me, I always open the blog from my reader. But I will be doing my part by going down my and other's blogrolls and finding new blogs. Sure I'm exhausted and super busy, but I will do it for You! And you. And you.

So please, go click some blogs. You can make a difference. Think of the children!!


In other news, I got two solid chunks of sleep last night! Not as good as sleeping the night through in my own bed, but I will take whatever the Pumpkin gives me.

Your last comment about sleep made me chuckle in that sleep-deprived parent sort of way. How bad or good a particular night seems is all down to how the prior nights have been, isn't it? Last night, our Pumpkin only woke up once, and I was thrilled with that. If she'd been sleeping through the night, I might not have been so happy, but since her previous pattern was to wake up at least 2x per night, a single waking seemed great.

Does that mean she only woke up once? If so, that’s great!! Granted, not as great as sleeping thru the night on her lonesome, but you take what you can get.

Cloud - Isn't that the truth!

Becoming Mommy - Well, she got up at least twice, but Londo had the first shift with her which gave me a good chunk until she woke up at 3:30 and he got me. I'm happy with it! :-)

I always click over because I'm a comment freak. I just can't keep my mouth shut.

Blog on!

I always click over because I don't feel like I'm getting the full effect unless I'm in the writer's "house."

Woooohooooo! for sleep! Hopefully you'll be able to go for two in a row!

Good luck with sleeping more. We have had our share of sleepless nights lately thanks to both of our boys.

Blog the Recession has been so much fun. A great perk is finding lots of great new blogs to frequent :)

The Beginnings of a Ski Buddy

After lunch, my daughter and I went back up the "magic carpets" to the top of the bunny slopes. She wanted to keep skiing! With me...
