Adventures in the Blogosphere

There's days that I wonder why on earth I am putting myself through all this trouble of getting articles out there every day, most of which I write myself. There are days - like when stats are low (although I swore to myself I wouldn't watch them anymore) or when you get nasty comments  - that you wonder what's the point.
And then you get this one beautiful comment that makes it all worth while. Or - as happened recently - you get this big organization that contacts you and says that they have some products to give away to people who are doing something great, and that they chose you.
That's how I got this magnificent smartphone from Nokia.

Can you imagine me with a smartphone? My last phone I got for 15 euro's in Africa... even the Africans found my phone very sad.
So I have been getting to know the things since early morning and keep wondering that maybe it's too pretty and I should just hang it on the wall and look at it. Even the box it came in was gorgeous. And the wrapping of the phone was a children's pop up book... Doesn't get any cooler than that.

So yes... there is happiness in this part of the blogosphere :-)

PS on more happy bloggy news, I have a guest post up at Raising My Boychick about underwear



  1. yay! they are great as little computers and pretty good as phones but I couldn't give mine up even if I wanted to, which I don't ;-)

  2. I just got my first-ever mobile, a smartphone. And I love it so, so much. Congratulations!

  3. seriously? First ever? That sounds weird since I'm at my *counting* mwah somewhere around my 10th phone, had one since I was about 17... But I always had handidowns or lowest range ones (anyhow everyone has a cell in Belgium ;) )

  4. Everyone has a cell phone here, too. I am a selective neo-luddite. My husband bought me this for Christmas and I adore it!

  5. I REALLY hope you keep writing! I look forward to reading your posts in my email every evening after a long day - it keeps me going and reminds me that there are other fabulous mamas out there who believe in the same values I do, and that I'm not alone!

    Keep writing...please keep writing!

  6. Within, I do get the doubt every once in a while, but I always end up thinking it's silly, that in the end, the good that comes out of it is worth more than the occasional bad... Don't worry

    @Kelly, be careful, you might find yourself a full blown cyborg if you continue :)

  7. Yay for pleasant surprises! That's called a "happy" at my house -- when something cheers you up right when you need it. Glad you got a happy!

  8. That is great! I too wonder if all this time I put in makes any difference.


I love comments! Drop me a line
