We won!!! 

Ok, so we didn't come in 1st place. No worries. We just had to make it to the Top 25 to be featured on www.circleofmoms.com!! Thank you to everyone who took time and energy out of their days to help me get to the top! I really appreciate you sharing the link and being so invested with me!  I hope you had as much fun with the "everyday highs and lows" of it as I did! It was a nail-biter to the bitter end. 

I wanted to share with you all of the great things that have happened because you voted!  

Because of you, I gained 45 more likes on the Everyday Highs and Lows Facebook page! Now these folks will be notified in Facebook whenever there is a new post. If you would like to be notified too and have not yet "liked" our page on Facebook. Please, click here.

Because of you our blog gets featured on the Circle of Moms website! They have a readership of over 6,000,000 moms!

Because of you, I get to put this super cool looking badge on my blog. It is like "street cred" in the blogger world. 

Because of you, I got a job as a freelance writer with a local newspaper! This is truly a dream come true!

Because of you, 3,500 more people have read Everyday Highs and Lows.  It's a whole new group of people that I would have never reached! 

Because of you, people in over 42 countries are also reading Everyday Highs and Lows!

Because of you, I may get to write for the Circle of Moms! I will let you know if that happens. 

Because of you, and this is the most important one, over 6,000,000 moms will now have access to the symptoms of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. 

Because of you, a life will be saved. 

So you see, because of you, I did win.
