We have a winnah!

And I'm excited because, so very appropriately, this reader was the very first person to add me to her blogroll. I was way too excited when I realized that someone I didn't know liked my blog enough to link to it. In fact, it changed my perspective on Mean Mommy entirely. I suddenly had an audience (albeit a small one), and it made me a bit giddy (and for awhile, self-conscious).

So...the winner is the very smart, funny, insightful, hip, and just damn nice Gray Matter Matters. Really, if she's not on your feed reader yet, she will be once you click over. (In fact, I just realized that the link to her blog disappeared from my sidebar. Sorry! I put it back.)

I'm also relieved that the winner is someone I "know" well enough to admit that the actual prize package I promised will probably not be mailed (or, erm, created) until the end of June because...dress show. I'm falling off pace a bit, so I'm about to turn the playroom/sewing room into a sweat shop where I will work long non-union approved hours for very little pay, but much gratification.

Congrats, Gray! Send me your mailing address when you get a chance: meanmommyblog {at} gmail.

Isn't it the best when you get a reader? It is so awesome. My conversations with my husband are so pathetic:

ME: "Guess what, hun? I got another reader today! I have an AUDIENCE!!!"

KEVIN: "Oh? That's great, hun. Wow." *looks at me strangely* "Did you leave the house today?"

ME: "Um, no. I was reading blogs and writing."

KEVIN: "You worked on your novel? How much did you write?!?" *gets all excited*

ME: "Ah, well..."

KEVIN: "You wrote blogs, didn't you?"

ME: "Shut up."

Congratulations, Gray! I second that she's very nice, supportive and encouraging.

Is that all it takes to get new readers? I wonder if anyone would take one of my children as a prize...ebay said I could no longer list them there. Love your blog, you've made my short list.


Mean Mommy and Lori, you have made my keyboard blush.
I didn't think I'd win tonight, and honestly just so happy to be in a category with such amazing bloggers. Well, I did just jot a few notes down, just in case...first of all I'd like to thank...
