A Fairy Blog Mother!

I've just spent the last few hours of the wee-hours of my night/morning chatting with Skye from Real Mom Reviews - I must have entered one of her giveaways previously, and started following her posts through many of her social media outlets.  I figured she was just one of those random *up-there* mom bloggers who had been blogging forever and doing all those fabulous giveaways.  Then tonight, I noticed on my facebook her post:

"Real Mom Reviews has offically been reviewing for 8 weeks! As of today, followers are...
752 Facebook
992 Twitter
1057 GFC
1126 Feedburner
296 Networked Blogs
Thanks for ALL your continued support!"

When I saw this, I just about flipped.  I have been blogging for about the exact same time(well technically 12 weeks, but I took a few weeks off the second week I started because Andrew was hospitalized and then we had Ethan!) and I'm not even a smidgen close to where she is! 
Either way, I had to talk to her right away, and figure out her tips of the trade, since I know she'd understand that a new blogger (such as herself) could use some pointers as to where to start! She obviously did something right! So I e-mailed her right away and we chatted over facebook chat, and she has been very nice and has helped me with a few questions I've had, as well as getting my button and grab code on my blog!
This woman is Super Woman to say the least! She is amazing! and she's my new inspiration - I have new motivation to get up and get a move on my blog! She is exactly what I needed to get myself back on track again with my original goals: To be a ROCK STAR blogging machine!

Move aside puney numbers and stats... I'm moving up :)

So Please do me a favor, and show her some love, for showing me some love :) 


  1. good luck to you hope all your dreams come true and you make rockstar blogger status. :D I'm still working on it myself

  2. Good luck mama! I started my review & giveaway blog around the same time too and my followers are around the same as yours. I've totally watched Skye climb up so quickly and I'm amazed too. My new mission... blog hops and LOTS of them.

  9. I’m a follower from the Blog Hop! Please feel free to stop by with a ‘follow back’: Thrifty and Frugal by Debbie

    I've been blogging for about 2 years and it's taken me that long to get just a lil over 200 followers...it's all about socializing, getting your name out there...I LOVE meeting 'fellow blogger friendly' people that are so happy to help and answer what sometimes seems to be silly questions but are important ones too. I've met a few 'bigger' bloggers that don't seem to remember that they were new bloggers struggling too, at one time. It's fun and so inspiring to have a fellow blogger friend to talk to!

  10. Hopping around to say hello. I recently became a follower. I would appreciate it if you would visit my blog Rufina's Opinions And Reviews R.O.A.R and return the favor.

  11. Yea i am real mom reviews husband.

    Following your blog!
    Please follow back!
    If you could follow me on Facebook, that would be great!
    The Dad!

  12. yay! I'm number 100!! thanks for following :)
