First things first: One Fit Mom has a new look! What do you think?
Over the next few weeks, I am going to be very busy organizing, re-categorizing, tagging, summarizing and even re-formatting some of my older posts to better fit the new theme. With 115 posts and counting, this is no small task.
If there are any readers who receive my posts by email, can you please comment below to let me know whether or not my posts get re-sent to you every time I edit or change them? I’m really hoping they don’t, as otherwise, I will have to re-consider exactly how I conduct this editing and organizing project!
Next up, I am planning to start adding some product reviews, to share my opinions on the baby gear and other related items that we have found to be useful (or in some cases, not so useful). Reviews will have their own category — and if I can figure out how to do so, their own page — so they will be easy to peruse or avoid, as desired. I read literally hundreds and hundreds of reviews when I was making decisions on which gear to purchase for Oliver (especially for the big stuff), so in that regard, I feel it would be nice to give something back to the Internet community. I definitely don’t want to turn this into a review site, though, so I’ll be capping reviews at a maximum of one per week.
I am going to figure out a way to allow readers to contact me directly, without publishing my personal email address for all the world to see. I still haven’t found a way to add a “contact me” button, but I will get this issue sorted out ASAP, even if it means creating a separate email address for the blog.
Finally, I am starting to look at ways to financially support my blog. I’m really not keen to clutter it with advertising (as evidenced by the fact that I actually paid WordPress to remove the banner ads they so stealthily inserted into my posts without telling me), but there are some basic costs associated with running this blog, and it has also been consuming an increasing amount of my time. To that end, I have joined the Amazon.com associate program. When there is a product I have particularly liked or found especially useful, I will provide a link that allows me to earn a small referral fee for any purchases made through that link. If you were already planning to buy the item in question, and you feel so inclined, you can help to support my blog (painlessly) by making your purchase through the link.
Thank you to all of my readers for making my first year of blogging such a rewarding experience. Things are about to get even better!
