Last week, an email popped into my inbox from a famous Canadian Blogger asking I was interested in contributing to a new Canadian Blog being set up. After I thought about it for the nanosecond that it took me to hit the reply button, I responded with a resounding, of course I am interested.
So I got set up on Typepad, now there's an interesting beast, complete with phone call to the tech person because it was requiring my credit card to set up a free guest account. Hmmm, I am no scholar but I am fairly certain no credit cards are required for something that is "free".
I wrote my bio, in the second person, as required. Uploaded my picture fully aware that I am sick of that one but have no time to figure out something better and got to thinking on my first post.
In the meantime, I discovered that the opportunity was all because the lovely Angella recommended me. I am humbled that she would consider me and oh so thankful. She also linked me yesterday and as a result I had more hits in one day than I usually get in a week.
To say that I am giddy about this whole opportunity is an understatement. I am honoured and a bit in shock, still, that anyone wants to read my ramblings here, let alone ask me to contribute to something so much bigger.
So what did I write about for my first post? Why, the weather of course. When it is -35 Celsius a mere eight days before the spring equinox, I am sorry but it was all I could think about.
Without further ado, here is my first post on Canada Moms Blog!
