September is over??!?! Where did it go!! I really cannot believe it is October now. I love Fall, for many reasons. Mainly Pumpkin Spice Lattes (I've had 2 so far...we're on a budget ;-) ) or pumpkin anything, but also our anniversary, cool walks, chili and crock pot meals, Thanksgiving, Christmas music, my birthday, darker evenings, cheaper electric bills, and pretty trees. I also like not having to shave my legs everyday, wearing jeans and fleeces or hoodies, and not having to blast the car AC. Please feel free to comment with your favorite fall thing, I'd love to know I'm not alone!

Here are last month's statistics:

Viewers are primarily from the USA, some from Canada, and a decent amount from Europe and Australia. My most popular posts were the reviews and giveaways, with my hair cut, August stats, meal plans and save our daughter posts coming next. The most popular page on my blog last month was Cloth Diapering. The nicest thing is that google is finally starting to bring a few people to my page. I'm still a 0 PR, but I hope to see that go up this month!

Exciting news in Letters from Momma world: 
I crossed the 200 mark on Google Friend Connect (257), Facebook 'likes' (224) and twitter followers (206)!
I've received a lot of positive feedback on my Save Our Daughters series, and have another post for it in the early writing stages.
I received my first paid sponsor offer. There is a text link on my right sidebar that is a small sponsor of this blog! They reached out to me!! How cool is that!? Maybe other companies will follow suit! See my PR page for more information.
I have a review for Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate Brownie Mix (giveaway includes several other items), and have a Mother-ease cloth diaper review/giveaway coming up toward the end of the month. My first 4 review/giveaways were very successful, and I hope the companies I worked with are pleased.
My goal for October is to write another guest post for The Cloth Diaper Whisperer. I also want to search out other guest post options--let me know if you have one available! Another goal is to reach 500 followers. I think that's pretty lofty, but I'm setting my sites high.

Thanks for following Letters from Momma. I'm glad to have you all! Please let me know if there's anything you want to see, or if you have any suggestions.
