Talk about a blog blowing up quickly. I really need to learn how to pace Locomotion of Expressions.
The growth has been fantastical. I am uber impressed with myself and oh so glad to have found something I am good at!
Usually people used to only call me when they needed small help with computers and social networks. Now there is something people can come to me for advice for! Yay!

It's funny, but I have never been to college. It's not that I don't want to go, it just keeps getting put on the back burner for the kids.

But I think I am good at two. Unless god decides to give us another. I would welcome it with open arms. It would be just as cute and smart as thew two I already have! :) I don't know how I would find time for it, but I would manage. I don't particularly want another though, right now. I want to get my education in order.

It's funny that I have scraped this blog this far. I surprised myself. Looking back there have been some really great products.. and some not so great products! I have gotten so busy I have had to turn down pitches to me. It was easier than I thought it would be, but still impressive. I started out with 4 followers in late Jan and have wrangled my way to over 1,000 in 8 months. My traffic and Alexa ratings are pretty darn decent. But I don't know when Google will update page rank. I admit, I do not understand a LOT of html, and a lot of it Google has been my best friend in deciphering and sometimes even my worst enemy. Sometimes, I can't figure it out to save my life.

A few websites have been essential in my growth and I wouldn't have made it this far without them. If you are a blogger you MUST check out Nina Say's blogger forum BFPR (Blog Friendly PR) it is a forum where PR emails are gathered with their permission. It saves them from paying a site to do it for them and really opens it up for us bloggers and gives us more selection to be picky, if you will. Everyone there is super friendly and it's not like a lot of the other sites I have been on where there are not many giveaway opportunities. In fact a lot of blogger ning and forums have so many bloggers, and so few opportunities, the smaller blogs don't stand a chance. I get reviews from Tomoson, and Mamabzz, and MomSelect and I really do love MyBlogSpark & Bloggerdise. There are others like SocialMoms and others too, but those are really more, you blog for us for free, and we MIGHT pick your post to win a  prize, which I honestly do not have time for.
I love BFPR's blogger forum. But you also have to pay to use it. I think its around 5$ a month? I can't be certain because I haven't had to pay to use it .... YET.  But when my review plate clears up.. if it does.. I will be joining. It's free to use her forum but not to view The Pitch List.
It is worth EVERY penny. This is the coolest thing since sliced bread.
That being said, I am certain that every post you are going to see from me in the next two months is all courtesy of Nina Say. Lets give her a big warm round of applause, because without her and her genius forum, we wouldn't have a chance to review these, and in turn, you wouldn't have a chance to win these.

Here is her blog: tell her I sent you if you join her forum because of this post, or visit her blog. Please let her know it's because of me. I want that- you give it to me!

Here is what I have in store for you guys soon.. (in no particular order except ones marked with an asterisk* and those will be very soon. Like next 7 days soon) soon as will be in (the mail) next week, and even as far as 2 months from now. :)
30+      & some sooner than others! That's great news for you! I am going to be so busy! :)
