Your Clarification, Should You Choose To Accept It

I've gotten quite a few emails from you guys asking what Club Mom is and how my writing for them affects my current blog here.

Here's further clarification.

Club Mom is an online community for moms to meet other moms with similar interests. You join, complete a profile, and then you can search for other moms based on what's important to you. Like for instance, for me I looked for other moms who like to drink Stoli from their water bottle during playgroup and then lie about it. I'm joking of course!

I never lie about it.

I did actually do some random searches, like for other moms with young daughters, moms who live in California, moms dealing with stress, etc. Then I added them all to my network to harrass for advice later. It's a pretty cool way to immediately connect with another mom. Sort of like online dating except without the part where your new "friend" is actually a 60-year-old man with a foot fetish who lives with his mom.

Club Mom also has advice columns, articles, and, now blogs, on every earthly subject written by...uh, moms. Enter me.

Anyway, the point of this post is to let you know that when my new site is launched Club Mom will be redirecting my traffic from this web address to the new one at their site. So, my address will stay the same. Do not remove me from your link list! All traffic will be redirected. Unless of course, you want to remove my link. Then in that case, knock yourself out. I probably don't like you anyway.

Hopefully, that clears up all the questions I've received regarding my vague description of what the hell was going on. So much for my attempt at being all mysterious and interesting.

Also, I've seen my new setup and I am relieved to see that they changed very little on my banner (Hear that sound? That's Kelly yelling "Damn right they did!"). My new blog looks very similar to this one. Just...smaller. Think Mini-Me.

The content, of course, will stay the same. My ulcer will not.

In other words, next week is the beginning of Writer's Block Fest 2006.

If I must follow you into a smaller space; I want my cookies, damn it! Oh, and pass the Stoli. *grin*Good luck with the WBF, I'll be rooting for ya! ;)

That is exciting! I am glad that someone finally has enlightened me as to how it's going to go down. I joined Club Mom but I was forced to lie. Seems they don't want us Canadians to infiltrate their system. But now the cats out of the bag, I expect I'll be getting the boot.

Writer's Block Fest. Hmm, I think I've been trapped there for weeks! Someone, please send help.I am 150% confident that you'll be great. But here's something I'm wondering: Can dog moms join the group? How about women with lots of houseplants? 'Cuz then I'm so in! :-)

That's awesome. The redirecting thing looks like a great idea - and it will be so much easier than having to visit you in two places (I would have done it though)

Your new place is going to be awesome!Very happy for you Lena!

Thanks for playing along. None of you must be only-children like me. You're all so...nice.
