I didn't think this day would ever arrive but here it is - my SITS day.
(OK, technically I posted on Thursday but I can't find the instructions about delay publishing my friend Joanne, once provided. I didn't want to miss any of you so I am posting before going to bed. My apologies to Thursday's Featured Blogger.)
I discovered SITS (the Secret to Success is Support) about a year ago when perusing Tales From the Bum Bum Patch. I wondered how my coworker had so many followers despite us starting our blogs at the same time.
I kept noticing 'Stopping by from SITS' in her comments and also noticed SITS' nifty badge. One click later and I learned part of the secret to her success.
In addition to gaining followers and getting some great feedback on my blog, SITS allowed me to find some fantastic gems, bloggers I truly miss when I am not reading their posts.
Here is a little about me: I am a copy editor at a community newspaper chain in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In addition, I am the online features editor, which gives me the freedom to write and assign anything I like. It's a beautiful thing.
But my real job, one that I would love to do full time, is being a mom to our little miracle. Our son turned two in October and the most you'll see of him is this:
I have written too many articles about cyber crime to put my little guy's face or any other information online, which makes me a hypocrite seeing as I love reading about other people's children and looking at their photos.
I am also mom to our kitten, Cosmo, who has become a friend and enemy to our little guy, and a stepmom to AD, who is now 20.
My blog was created as a way to make money so I could stay home with our little guy but I soon realized this was a naive dream and one that I gave up quite quickly. Now it's a creative outlet to offer my opinion on This, That and The Other Thing.
Looking through my almost two-years of blogging history, it's hard to pick three favourites, so I cheated and am offering you three favourites - or at least ones that received the most comments - in various sub-categories. And feel free to poke around my blog. I look forward to hearing what you have to say and finding more gems among you.
