Best of Things I Can't Say 2010

When ScaryMommy encourages us to do a post about our year in blog posts, who am I to argue with her fabulousness? What a year! Attended my first(Bloggy Bootcamp) and second(Type A Mom) blog conferences, started Pour Your Heart Out and Blog Friend Feature, too. Btw, I featured a blogger yesterday instead of today due to the holiday- if you did not meet her yet, check her out in my sidebar.

My year in blog posts:

January: Dealbreakers: How to Be Labeled a "Motherbitch"

February: How to Deal with Your Kid's Teacher

March: Everybody's Doing It: Let's Talk About Sex

April: Bringing Mom Sexy Back

May: No More Babies in This House

June: Can You Change Your Husband? Can You Change?

July: NOT Mom of the Year

August: A Solution to the Problem of Bullying

September: One Year Later

October: When Blogging Changes

November: Pour Your Heart Out: The Hardest Glass to Pour

December: The Worst Thing She Ever Did

A huge thanks and hugs to to my wonderful readers and supporters. I never would have guessed in a million years how much this blog would grow over the past year or the friends that I would make because of it.

Can't wait to see what 2011 has in store!

Amid all the blog drama I've seen over the last year, your blog has continued to grow and expand in such positive ways. You consistantly provide positive, ecouraging, down to earth, real, fun and helpful content that nearly everyone can relate to on some level. Way to rock out 2010 Shell!!

Warmest of wishes for all your moments in 2011 to be filled with love, laughter and light!

Wow, I remember most of these posts!!! Shell, I just adore you and your blog...your raw honesty and ability to show your "human-ness" is quite refreshing in a blogosphere full of people who are merely trying to impress others. You are who you are and you have no problem standing up for what you believe in. I have so much admiration for you! Your "Pour Your Heart Out" series has been very therapeutic for me...it helped me make peace with some issues from my past. Writing about those things on my blog were definitely not easy (as you well know) but it was such a wonderful outlet and I feel much less burdened by it all.

Hope you have a wonderful New Year and looking forward to more inspiring mosts from you in 2011!!

I am so happy to now have all these wonderful reading lists for my surgery recovery reading pleasure. Next week I plan to lay on the sofa like a lox with my keyboard in hand and catch up on all my friends' years in retrospective.

So now you're on my list, too.

Hope that 2011 is wonderful for you and yours!
