A Blogging Toddler

This month ‘Mormon Soprano’ turned 2 years old! It’s hard to believe our little baby has grown into a full-fledged toddler. It seems like just yesterday she was too small for any search engine recognition. Now, her posts often make the top ten on a Google Search, while other bloggers ping and track-back. She has even been recognized by a few professional news feeds.

It’s interesting to be the parent of a toddler. As many of you have experienced, every day with a two-year-old is definitely a new adventure! According to experts, here is some advice for raising the toddler blog… Continue reading

I sent her in last week for some basic upgrades, including a snazzy new hard drive with lots of “Gigs” and “Bytes”, so MoSop could save even more photos, and become a speedier blogging queen. The family was also tired of receiving continual … Continue reading

A New Day For Happy Thoughts

In my last post rant, I’m afraid I came across quite a bit cranky and less than patriotic. That was not my intention. OK. I admit I was cranky. But I want to reassure you that I still love my country very much, I am eager to see good things come from our new administration … Continue reading

Who Are You?

I have a little tool installed on this site called “StatCounter”, and it’s kind-of nerdy & fun to watch it off and on. It has a cool page with a world map, and whenever any of you visit my site a little red arrow is placed on your location. When I click on the red arrow, … Continue reading
