Friday Favorites-January 1st, 2010

Happy New Year!! (it’s the first time I’ve written 2010….time flies, remember celebrating the new millennium? Well, we are already a decade in!)

I’ve decided that the best way to ensure regular posting this month (and maybe beyond) is to start up some weekly features again. I’ll be posting at least one recipe a week (starting with Mike’s long awaited shrimp pasta) and doing Friday favorites as well. I’ll be searching around the web for a meme or two to join. I’d love to almost double my views next month and considering the slowness of my blog in December that shouldn’t be too hard!

This week I am happy to say that I’ve completed the first, of many, diaper covers for the wee little one. I’ve even made a little matching hat! I have a terribly hard time completing projects because I always move on to something new (I have AT LEAST 5 other baby projects in the work) so while I love starting projects my favorite thing is when I actually carry them through to completion (a rarity)!

I’m so looking forward to snuggling the wee little bottom in wool. The pattern is so easy (and fun to modify) so I am sure that there will be many more wool soakers in our future!

  1. I know how you feel about trying to get blog visits up for this month! I’m working on that too! Thought I would share some of the memes I’ve done in the past – Make-Do Monday, Tackle It Tuesday, Thirsty Thursday, Three Word Thursday (don’t know if she’s doing that one any more), My HUsband Rocks Friday (don’t know about that one either) and Works For Me Wednesday – that one is by far the absolute best one for traffic, especially if you can post your article near the top, which means you have to keep watching her blog Tuesday night to get in. There are 200+ bloggers that participate on a weekly basis. Also, the Carnival Of Homeschooling happens weekly and that also drives up visits quite a bit. I’ll be hosting it sometime in March! Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the suggestions…

    I’m doing Meal Planning Mondays, and Fit Momma Fridays, I may need to check out Tackle It Tuesday (sounds like something I might need!)

    I’ve never really figured out what I should write for a carnival so I haven’t tried that yet. I will have to take a peak!

    So far so good with my goal. This might be my best week since I’ve switched my blog over to wordpress (it was more active when I was on typepad).

    I’m going to head over to visit your blog! I have a hard time keeping up with everyone!
