It’s here! Made to Mother is officially one year old! And what a crazy year it has been…hundreds of powerful mama stories shared, an amazing community of new friends made and a big, open horizon of opportunities stretched before me that I couldn’t have even imagined a year ago!
I always considered myself a writer and when I began Made to Mother, it was mostly with the goal in mind of gathering research for my next book. And while, it has served that purpose brilliantly, it has also been so much fun and made me realize how much I love blogging! I hope that M2M will continue to thrive as a community for women to share and hear diverse stories of motherhood.
On another note, welcome to M2M’s new site! Isn’t it beautiful? I am so proud of it and I hope you like it, too. I have redesigned it to be more user-friendly while still maintaining the simplicity that I loved about the old one. A few things to check out…on the sidebar you will notice an easy-to-navigate archive of all the older stories and posts, and even a search so readers can find a certain story topic they are looking for. You might also see that those annoying ads from WordPress are gone at the bottom (thank God!) WP.com did not allow me to have any control over those ads and some were not appropriate for M2M’s audience so I am glad to see them go! In their place, there a few other affiliate ads and links that I have put up. It has been and will continue to be my promise to my readers that I will not shameless promote or clutter this site with ads and sales pitches. BUT, I do have to pay the bills…hosting a website is not free. And while I do not have aspirations of becoming a mega-blogger or participate in every blogging campaign out there to make money, I will keep a few a few of my favorite affiliate companies and products on here in the slight chance that you might be interested in their services. Need a good hosting company? I just adore SiteGround’s unbeatable support. Like M2M’s theme design? I am proud to say that I got it from Restored316 beautiful, feminine designs, backed by a strong framework that gives power and usability behind my blog’s functionality and security.
