Thanks to all of you who took the time to follow the directions and posted for the first time on a blog! It was great hearing from you!

Jess asked “how do I get an official blog ID?” It’s really easy! Just click here and sign up for a Google ID. You’ll also be signing up for a “Gmail” account which you can choose to use or not use. Once signed up, you can post to any blog with your Gmail name. You can even put a picture on your Google account and then when you post a comment on a blog, your picture will come up, too!

By the way, another thing you can do when you post a comment is click on the “subscribe by email” link that is listed at the bottom of the comment box. This is especially helpful if you don’t want to miss other people’s comments on that particular post (especially if moms are sharing tips on some subject!) or if you ask a question in your comment that you don’t want to miss an answer either I or another mom posts as a follow up to your comment or question. Clicking “subscribe by email” below the comment box will only apply to that particular post. If you comment again on another post, you’ll need to click the box again to get the follow up comments sent to your email. You can always read follow up comments online, but you’ll need to remember to go there to do that.

Now, the winner of the drawing from first-time posts is….Kim Ostrum! Congratulations Kim! Send me an email at jillannsavage (at) with your mailing address and I’ll send you your Hearts at Home gift!
