I am always amazed that what started as a project I thought no one would ever seen has grown into a place where I've built a community and sense of identity. Blogging has been the one place where I get to wear all of my hats at the same time, even as they shift and change. I really appreciate the insight and support I get from everyone who reads this blog. To date, Balancing Jane has gotten over 260,000 page views, and it's now averaging about 20,000 a month! Thank you!
To help celebrate three years of blogging, here's a list of some of my favorite posts from different stages of this blog:
- Mythos Maintenance: Another Job for Mothers?
- Knocked Up: A Hollywood Perspective on Natural Birth
- Balancing Mothers on the Big Screen: A Mother's Day Tribute
- Sophie the Giraffe, the Division of Labor, and Economic Independence
My goals for the future are to continue getting more tech-savvy, especially when it comes to incorporating images into my posts (and that might mean making myself take some more pictures as well).
My main goal, though, is to continue creating an active community. If you'd like to help me reach that goal, I'd love for you to join and share Balancing Jane. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google Plus.
