This week my Facebook fan page hit 500 Likes, mainly because I pimped myself on Twitter so that people would feel sorry for me and Like my page:
The 500th person who liked my page on my blog is <drum roll please!>…Allison McCaskill of BiblioMama!
I am so lucky that I got Allison as my 500th person to feature because she’s my kind of ideal reader in many ways. First of all she’s a mom, and she’s brutally honest on her blog (writing about books, funny shit her kids say, depression and anxiety, and the terrible mystery that is the odor emanating from her son’s baseball socks), and she loves to read. How cool is her profile: “There Will Be Snark”? And PS: I have a pathological love for all Canadians. They are just so nice, eh? Allison’s blog is about comedy, tragedy, horror, and drama. She writes honestly about depression and anxiety, and read this post last year at Blogging Out Loud Ottawa, this one the day after her daughter’s 9th birthday, and this one where she tried to be a smartass for a change.
In “If Only Bed Bugs Were The Major Problem,” she writes about how she is tired because she hasn’t had a good night’s sleep in 30 years (and she’s not kidding). And like me, she went to Blogher ’12, and wrote a post about her experience, HangovHer. Unlike my post about what happened at Blogher, which some people did not enjoy, ahem, many people actually enjoyed Allison’s.So please go follow her on Twitter if you like some snark, and check out her blog!
And the 499th person who
felt sorry for me and Liked my page was:
Sarah Colnic of Real Girls Lingerie – Momalog Facebook follower #499!
Why I follow the Momalog: I’m not Ado’s typical follower. Athough I love other people’s children, I have none of my own, and don’t anticipate any. I discovered her on Twitter. Her tweets are fresh, humorous, and always make my day!!” (Note from Ado: I did not pay Sarah to say this stuff.) I share a little house with a BIG YARD with my dog, a shepherd mix named Daisy-Cakes and BIG KITTY named Shamrock who was adopted on St Paddy’s Day.
People say I have an adventuresome spirit and I’m very open to try new things. I’ve traveled to almost every state and over 15 countries. I am a sports fan and will watch almost any sports. I like to think I am very true to who I am.
I founded my company, Real Girls, specializing in lingerie that provides support without sacrificing style. I am Real Girls. I do the designing. I am an active part of all pattern-making, sample-making, and fittings. I direct all photoshoots. I’m involved in all day-to-day operations. My favorite part of Real Girls is being there when a new item finally comes to fruition.
Real Girls collections are available exclusively on our website (realgirlslingerie.com). Real Girls brand is offering The Momalog followers a 15% discount until Sept 30, 2012! All orders will also include a free gift. Please use coupon code: MOMALOG12 during checkout.
Next week I’m going to feature another super-cool Momalog Facebook Liker:
Casey Carey-Brown of Life With Roozle
Please go check them out and tell them Ado sent you! (BTW, it’s pronounced “Aye-dough,” which rhymes with “Play Doh”, not “Adoo,” which rhymes with “poo.” At Blogher someone came up to me and said, “Hi Adoo! Glad to finally meet you!” – I had to correct her, and we both felt sheepish about the whole thing.)
So…anyhoo, thanks to all of you who liked my page. We have a vibrant little community going on over there, and it pretty much makes my day, every day. Thank you for the Likes!
