Three quick items of business today…

1. Blissfully Domestic’s First Conference

BlissDom08If you haven’t yet heard, Blissfully Domestic is hosting its first conference, BlissDom ’08. It’s all day October 18 in Nashville, followed by a fabulous cocktail party, where it is rumored there will be served a lovely new pink drink called a blisstini. That should be reason enough for you to go.

The best part about this conference? It’s free. That’s right – absolutely free. It is limited to the first 75 people who sign up, so you won’t want to miss this.

I’m honored to be one of the speakers, along with some other fabulous women bloggers, such of Megan at Velveteen Mind, Busy Mom, and of course, the wonderful Alli of Fussypants.

Registration begins tomorrow at 9 a.m. CST. I have a feeling seats will fill quickly, so make a point to be there right on time if you’d like to make it.

I hope as many Simple Mom readers as possible can be there – I’d love to meet you all!

2. Martha’s Latest Venture


And also, in case you (possibly) live under a rock, Martha Stewart has launched a blog, and has invited bloggers to submit their site for consideration by the Domestic Goddess herself. Go sign up if you haven’t yet – and if you don’t have a blog, then maybe you can go over there and put in a good word for Simple Mom.

3. Blogger’s Choice Awards

My site was nominated for Best Parenting Blog!
Finally, Simple Mom was nominated for a few categories in the Blogger’s Choice Awards. You can click on the buttons in the sidebar to sign up and cast your vote. Though I have to say – “Hottest Mommy Blogger” is a bit much!

  1. Hi Toblerone,
    I found your site through violetposey , then realized you are a blogger at Martha’s. Small world! You mentioned a site called Stumbled Upon, there is another blogger at Martha’s blog whose site is onthetopflat. She is part of Stumbled Upon, check her out. I think your site is wonderful and very informative. I am going to add you to my link. I especially enjoy your faq on blogging, since I am new to this it really helps. And finally you are on the dot about the helpers at WordPress, but they must get a million questions everyday. I enjoy your blog, hope to hear from you.

  7. I always thought that Hottest Mommy Blogger award kind of silly. I guess it’s supposed to be a joke. :)

    Wish I could go to the Nashville gathering! I’d love to meet you.
