Comment-Palooza ... and the Winner is ...

Perhaps you remember way back when ... like at the beginning of this month that has just flown by ... I announced a special contest here at MommyBrain and ToddlerBrain.

I know that August isn't officially over yet, but ... after 26 days and a whole lotta Comment L-O-V-E, I am shutting it down and announcing a winner!

But first a few statistics - just to build the suspense and because I like this sort of thing

21 new followers on MommyBrain (34 total)

471 entries from countless commenters, including these Top Commenters:

A Little Technical Stuff: Since all the comments obviously weren't under one post, I tracked all the entries (comments, followers, etc.) using an Excel spreadsheet ... oh, how I love a spreadsheet :)

And now, for the winner ...


I met BJ-Mama just this month, and I am so glad that I did! She's the mommy of a little girl about the same age as Natalie. She's crafty, which I both envy and enjoy. She loves to change her blog background - probably as often as I once changed my classroom seating arrangement :) She's thoughtful and thought-provoking. She's real and honest and once told a hilarious story about a carpet cleaner! And I love the quote in the left sidebar of her blog. Congratulations, BJ_Mama, you've got a Macy's gift card to spend on whatever you want!

Thanks again to all my commenters, new followers, and good friends. You've made this CommentPalooza month really fun and special for me :)

P.S. I am double-dipping with this post 'cause it's my blog and I can if I want to ... this week's Thursday Top Ten list calls for a list of my 10 Favorite Blogs. Did you happen to see that list of Top Commenters of there? After showing me all that comment-love this month, those are definitely my 10 Favorite Blogs :)

Wow, ChiTown Momma totally crushed me. That's OK though. I love stopping by here. And, now that you read my blog too, it feels a little bit less like I'm a stalker. :)
And, thanks for the link love.
