Happy Blogiversary to Tales of Mommyhood! #BloggersFete

It's here! It's here! #BloggersFete has begun! I am teaming up with In R Dream, Maple Mouse Mama, Life, Love and The Pursuit of Play, The Canadian Homeschooler and The Koala Mom to bring you this fantastic event!

7 years ago I decided to start a blog.  I wanted a way to keep track of cute things Mr. J did, and also for family to be kept up to date.  Little did I know at the time that my "little blog" would become what it is today.

For those of you that have found Tales of Mommyhood through the #BloggersFete event - thanks for stopping by!  My name is Ashley.  My hubby, Jason, and I have been married for 9 years and we have 2 wild little boys.  Mr. J (8) and Mr. K (soon to be 5).

Tales of Mommyhood is my little space on the web where I write about our family life, post reviews and giveaways, and sometimes recipes that our family loves.  I love getting to know my readers, so please feel free to leave me a comment (I always love seeing the comment awaiting moderation pop up when I login!)
Over the next 3 weeks I will be sharing some past posts, as well as taking part in all the fun #BloggersFete events that are happening (including a twitter party TONIGHT to kick things off - don't forget to RSVP).

To start, this is the VERY FIRST post that I ever published on Tales of Mommyhood.  It was published on August 9th, 2008.  There is a world of difference between those first few posts and now. I had been blogging for 2.5 years before I found myself involved in product reviews and giveaways (early 2011).  Tales of Mommyhood does accept sponsored posts, and you may find affiliate links throughout the blog.  I don't make a full time income with sponsored content, advertising or affiliate links, but they do help out our little family since I am a SAHM.
Secret Word: Disney
If you are a contester, then you will for sure want to check out the Monday Madness Giveaway Linky that is posted weekly. You can also find all of the ToM giveaways linked up in the menu at the top of the blog!

Welcome to the party! I look forward to getting to know you over the next few weeks.  As a THANK YOU to my readers, I am happy to share that Kernels has offered up a GC as a prize and PlaSmart has offered up a Magic Canvas!  Hurry on over and get your entries in!  Also be sure to check out the other giveaways on The Canadian Homeschooler, In R Dream, Life, Love and The Pursuit of Play, The Koala Mom and Maple Mouse Mama prize 1 and prize 2. Happy partying!

The blog and social media link ups are now live! Please add your links - you can gain some new followers and find some awesome new blogs to read!

Also, be sure to check back in later in the month for more details on our Facebook wrap up party happening on August 31st - of course, we have some awesome sponsors that have generously offered up prizes for that event as well!
