MKB Celebrates Over 100 Posts First Year

I can't believe it! I've written over 100 posts this first full year at Mamarazzi Knows Best. When I started this blog, it was an attempt to get my brain jump-started again, and clear out of my mommy-fog after many years as a mommyholic. With both my kids in full teenage mode, I found I knew nothing (or so I was told!), and had much to learn to get on the technological ball before I was completely left behind eating my children's cyberdust. Plowing through a few HTML tutorials (no, HTML does not mean How to Mow the Lawn, it's geek speak), brushing up on my English 101 and digging deep, deep into my frontal lobe I found enough material to keep me filling cyber pages for an entire year – I hope there are many more topics left in my cortex to write about too!

Little did I know, that in this process I would also find a wonderful mom-bloging community who would be open and accepting of a newbie like me, and let me join their ranks to learn the bloging way of my Internet co-blogers. Thanks for your support during my first full year of writing about things inspired by my family's antics, adventures and experiences. It's been really fun and rewarding to be able to share these with you, and to know that some of my posts have made you laugh, think, cringe or realize that we are all going through similar things with our families, at different stages perhaps, but nevertheless the same. You are not alone!

In the course of finding a direction for my blog, I allowed my kids to influence some of my posts and write about the current pop culture scene they are living through, and how this affects our lives. As you know, this aspect of my writing opened a new door for me at The where my new gig is writing about family and entertainment. “Way cool”, is what my kids think about mom now, and I hope it lasts!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I have a fun GIVEAWAY for you! The person to correctly answer the following question on this post, will win a $20 Starbucks gift card! Coffee, as some of you may know, is my only addiction! Make sure your e-mail is on your comment so I can contact you to send you the prize. Ready…

What pop culture phenomenon have I written about the most this past year?  Hint: I'm looking for a name…

If you are new to my blog, welcome. If you're a loyal reader, thank you! I hope you keep coming back to read and contribute your thoughts on the many family and entertainment topics of this humble blog.

Good luck, and thanks for reading!
