My little blog turns 1 today!
Who woulda thunk it?!?!?! Not me. A year ago today, I was up really late because I couldn’t sleep and I was on Facebook. My cousin’s status said something to the effect that she was thinking of starting a blog. I don’t know if she ever did… but a few minutes later… “A Not-So-Wicked Stepmom” was born. (I posted my first entry 7/13/2010 at 4:40am)
Why did I pick the name? I don’t know really. It was the best I could come up with at that moment… and the other seemingly clever things I thought of were already taken. And the more I think about it.. being a step mom is a huge part of my life, is one of the things that has changed me the most, and one of the things I am the most proud.
Whether you are reading this for my sage 😉 step mothering advice, the teenage trials and tribulations, my wacky adventures of the Maniac..or just my ramblings about my life I’m glad you’re here.
Honestly, I didn’t really think that anyone would even read this… or for that matter KEEP reading it! I actually have 9 subscribers! (Okay, it’s really 8.. the 10th is myself. Yes, I’m a dork I subscribe to my own blog.)
Since I’m talking numbers… In case you were wondering.. or care… here’s some stats about my blog…

I think it’s cool. I’m always amazed that I have views when I check the stats… even a year later!
When I first started writing, I was determined to write something clever, funny or interesting enough to make it onto Freshly Pressed. I decided that it’s probably not really realistic to try to make the cut… so I gave up. Maybe someday…if it happens it happens. I’ve found that I just write for myself… The wacky sort of stream-of-consciousness thing that I do. I just think and it comes pouring out onto the screen. Actually, sometimes I get so into what I’m writing and sooo into detail that I have to stop myself, scrap what I’m writing and start over. I’m sure you can tell I tend to be a detaily person.:)
Oh, have I ever mentioned that I don’t really tell people about my blog? It’s kind of super-secret. Is that weird? My sister knows, my aunt.. my 2 Best Friends know but I don’t think I’ve ever really sent them the link. I don’t promote it on Facebook. I do have another blog about our adventures in potty training that I share with everyone.. but this one is really more for me… and the entire blogosphere.. did I even spell that right? Maybe someday I’ll share it.
Well.. I think I will leave you with a couple of my favorite posts from this year.
1. “No, I forgot.“~ Ballad of the 12-Year-old.
2. What A Glorious Day
3. The Big 1-3! Part 1: Bieb-her-bathroom!
