One more month left and these “reviews” are going to go away, or possibly transition into something else. Having a list in my “about” page is starting to be an eyesore. I’m over it. Thanks to KC over at Some Wise Guy, I signed up w/ Book Sneeze so maybe I’ll start giving away books too. Giveaways rock.
Overall, May was pretty awesome.
“I wrote a song about it, like to hear it hear it go.”
March and April sucked, but I’m not sure what happened in those two months. Reflecting back on certain events that transpired that I could place the “blame” on my lack of writing wasn’t happening, so I guess I was just in a “rut.” Maybe.
The month of May was different, thankfully. Kim’s birthday went off without a hitch, mother’s day was easy, and Kim also wrote an awesome piece about being Just a Volunteer, as well as a promise to our future son. Double posting for a month is exciting for both of us, because usually she only posts once. Every other month. She also updated her sidebar with a pretty sweet photo from our Christmas party, you should go check it out here. I guess I’ll go ahead and just say I dedicate this past month to my bride. She’s all kinds of awesome.
Ok, so May (aka Month #5). Here we go.
1) Publish at least 3 well-written posts a week.
Winner! With a grand total of 15, I think I made up a bit for April. No?
7) BE a guest poster
Once again, somebody thought I had something valuable to share, so I posted over at Dad of Divas. Go check it out if you haven’t yet.
9) Have 100 subscribers
Added 5 more for a grand total of 44. I’m thinking if I posted 5x a week I’d have hit 100 by now, but I would probably have already quit blogging too…
11) Influence at least 2 people to start blogging.
Another win! I can’t say who yet, as we’re in the process of setting it up now. I’m thinking it might be a long process, but they’re focused and I can’t wait to show what they have to share! Oh no, I said too much…
Top 5 Posts of May
Orange Parents is a definite must read for parents, go read it. Do it.
I’ve not personally spoken to Adam over at his personal blog yet, but his story is tremendously heart wrenching and has touched me in ways I cannot even explain. Check out how completely awesome it is as he shares his last few moments with his son. If you hit either of the 2 links, be prepared to have your life changed. I also wanted to do a quick shout to Adam because of their current adoption process, which will finalize the adoption of their Angela come June 9th. This is definitely a blog worth reading. You can also check out Adam’s interview over at Beta Christian here.
Ok May, thanks for showing up and getting me out of March and April. Let’s kick June in the a$$.
