Hello my GEMs! No, I did not forget about you today. I wanted to give you a quick heads up on what’s been happening here lately. The Good Enough Mother juggernaut rolls on thanks to you guys and the help of a few key people. First a quick note on where I’ll be this week.
YOWSA! It’s one of the biggest, baddest blogging conferences of all time, BLOG HER ’12 and yours truly is going! I’ll be speaking on a panel, going to a few receptions, learning about how to make Goodenoughmother.com better, and meeting IRL (don’t feel bad, I had to ask my kids what that meant too. In Real Life) some of the people I interact with online on a daily basis. Last year it was in California; this year it’s in the heart of Manhattan. That means I should be able to attend sessions, panels, parties and then head back home each evening, right?
ARE YOU NUTS?!
Yeah. No. I’ll be staying at a schwanky hotel in Midtown and have already told the family not to call or text (hey, I said I was Good ENOUGH Mother, not GOOD mother; don’t get it twisted). To say I am looking forward to it would be a massive understatement. I will be Tweeting up a storm as well as Instagramming (made up word.. not even a verb) so make sure to follow along. I’ll try to keep it all rate “G”.
Now, as you know, we’ve been growing quite a bit around here, so Buff (yep, the guy I’m married to) has come on board, leading branding and ad sales for Good Enough Mother. I knew the guy was good but watching him spin gold for GEM is a sight to behold. He closed a couple of big deals this last week (you’ll be hearing more about them coming up) and is streamlining the way we operate. So if you’re an advertiser and you’d like to come on board, email Buff here.
And finally I would be remiss if I didn’t say thanks to those of you who’ve made this possible. First you guys, who come to the site every day and read and comment. You are responsible for the awesome growth we’ve had over the last year or so and you really do keep me going. We value your opinion too so if you have an idea or topic you’d like to see addressed, feel free to reach out to us.
Thanks to our great crop of interns who helped keep this moving like a well oiled machine. To our employees (yes, we have 3!), thanks for taking care of the busy work required to keep a site like this going.
To our columnists; simply put, you guys ROCK! I love the depth and different points of view you bring with your pieces. If you guys at home are reading this and would like to become a GEM contributor, email us and tell us what you have in mind.
Onward and upward everyone!
