Shameless Self-Promotion

Dearest Mommy Friends,

I resisted as long as I could. 

I’m new to the blogosphere and like any good newbie, I’ve been reading a gazillion mommy blogs in my non-existent spare time.  I’ve learned a lot with my extensive mom blogging research, but more than anything I have become vastly aware of how important self-promotion is, darn. 

I simply loathe braggy people who are in your beautiful face all the time telling you how great they are and how you may cease to exist if you don’t buy this product or read this article.  I just can’t be that girl, I’m not like that.  As such, this is the one and only time (I really hope), I will ask for your assistance.  I am here to entertain you and make you smile and it is my sincere hope I’ve managed to do that a least a few times.   I’m not here for statistics, I’m not here to be president; I am here to have readers.

This is where you come in, my lovely Mommy Friends. 

I need your help in spreading the word about  So many of you have gone above and beyond as my personal cheering section (Mommy Friends Krista, Irene, Tina & Daddy Friend Zack shout outs) and I am eternally grateful.  You see, so many of you have like a billion friends because, I mean hello, just look at you!  Do this Mommy Friend a solid and spread the word if you haven’t already.

I’m sort of loving Facebook as a way to let you all know when I post new entries so if you haven’t already, fan me and I’ll hug you.  Invite your friends to be fans and I might even smooch ya!

3.  See those adorable “Vote for Mommyfriend” buttons on the left hand margin of this site?  When you click those bad boys you are voting for me on the Top Mommy Blogs and Top Baby Blogs directories.  Click them today, click them tomorrow, click them every time you visit…in fact, click till you can’t click no more.  These directories are where people can find me and every click gets me closer to that coveted #1 spot.  I love people and would love to be found!

Lastly, because this shameless self-promotion is making me feel cheap, I will end this by asking you to follow me on Twitter.  I try my bestest to be funny and out of every 10 tweets, one might even make you giggle. 

OK, I’m done and feeling super annoyed with myself.

And as always, you can email me at, I love hearing from you.

I love ya, I thank ya and I owe ya.

Your Mommy Friend,
