It's the last day of the month! It’s time for another monthly wrap up and the Best of the Blogs Linkup!
What a month. April has been filled with all sorts of ups and downs. The beginning of April is always a challenging time for our family because the Hubs is so busy with work. I try to find ways to help and support him behind the scenes, but it's always hard to not see him much because he's my person! Luckily tax day always rolls around and I get him back. I'm looking forward to some fun and adventures this spring and summer.
Blog wise, it's been a little slower than March, but still a good month. My goal for May is to spend a little more time polishing my posts, because I've caught some pretty silly errors lately. Fry not fries? Sigh! I guess it's all a learning process.
I also wanted to mention today that although I talk a lot about the numbers game with these posts, blogging is more than just numbers to me. It means so much more than pageviews. I am simply grateful to have a way to share, spread ideas and hopefully a little bit of healthy happiness. Thank you all for being a part of this site and thanks for hanging with me even though I am far from perfect.
Showing my gratitude for this community is just one of the reasons I started the monthly Best of the Blogs linkup, which is today! If you are blogger, you can linkup either a Top Posts recap like I do OR one of your favorite or top viewed posts of the month. The idea is that we will have the best this blog community has to offer for each month in one place. If you are not a blogger, this will be a great resource for you to learn about new sites and view some incredible posts. It will be held on the last weekday of each month.
