I love learning new things. Ask anyone -- I am constantly talking about my next great idea or business. This love of learning is what took me to Education Week, and the fact that my husband so graciously surrendered his time for babysitting. While there I took a class by Sheri Dew about leadership.

She mentioned that for about a year she had been reading a conference talk a day and what a difference that had made in her life. I thought, hey I can do that! It is especially easy now that I have such easy access to the Internet on my phone. So I started that week and after a little bit decided that I might as well post them on my LDS blog that I had started a few years ago. I am proud to say that I have stuck to my reading goal but missed a few blogging days on the weekend.

Anyway, for the last week the thought keeps creeping into my head that I needed to post the link to the blog on Facebook. I kept mentioning this to my husband but was worried about starting a religious debate on Facebook. I am not sure why or for what purpose I am supposed to share the blog but I knew I was supposed to because I kept getting a prompting. I struggled with how to introduce the link so as not to create any debating or mockery.

Because I had that on my mind I was on Blogger a lot yesterday and noticed a tab for stats. It was so fun to check out how many views I had and where they were coming from.

I was so happy to see that someone was actually looking! and from other countries! It gave me new found determination to reach my goals.

And today I even got a **comment! - It was from my brother but still! Excitement!

** Okay I have received many emails, especially from my wonderful mother-in-law, but this was the first comment on the actual blog & it just sounded more dramatic! :-)

Are you hooked up to Google Analytics? That will give you even more information (what links are most popular, what blogs people are visiting from, etc.)

I'm like you, I'm always trying to come up with an idea or business. But I find the business of motherhood sort of takes up 98% of my time, Dan the other 1% and that doesn't leave me for getting much accomplished!
