Overnight mommy-blog fame

Back in August, someone on one of my message boards left the link to an Ebay item:  a set of Pokemon cards a lady was selling.  That item got so much attention, this mother of five started a blog.  Click HERE to see why her humorous Ebay offer was so popular; She reprinted her offer at the beginning of her blog.

Somehow she got the attention of ABC.  Click HERE to see her featured on ABC World News Tonight.  (Click on "video" to see the segment.)

Now she's getting 4,000 hits a day on her blog and making money from the ads found there.

Check her out HERE.  There are lots of "mommy-blogs" on the Internet, but this one stands out.  You will laugh.  If you've ever had children, you will relate.  If you haven't... well, you may thank your lucky stars.  Or not.

How surprising! I already knew of this blog. My daughter and her correspond a lot over the past several years while both have increased their babies. I think they met in a "pregnant mommy" chat room.

I missed this on tv and really wanted to see it.  Thanks a lot for providing it for us.

Yep, I've been reading her for a little while, almost since the beginning. She is a funny lady. I've been lax posting lately... lots of stuff keeping my mind occupied other than my journal... but, I'll bet I could find something to say everyday if I had that many people dropping by. Especially if their was money being made <LOL>

This is so cool!  I had heard of her or read her blog, but it's on my feed now!  Thank you!
