So, early last month I received a wonderful email from Melinda Roberts and Steven Moore, she’s the writer of Mommy Confidential and creator of The Mommy Blog.net. Melinda is recognized as a major influence in the mommy blogging community and has participated in events hosted by Oprah, Disney, Johnson and Johnson, Pampers, Google, and Clorox, just to name a few.
I was so amazed when I received her email. It was sweet and lovely and even included a video of her wedding. Which by the way, was every women’s dream wedding, I don’t know how she pulled it off with six kids! It was elegant and vintage with just the right amount of modern twist added in the color palette. I wish I could go back and make my wedding was this beautiful!
From her email I was surprised to learn that a few months earlier Melinda had purchased a lovely wire wrapped Citrine pendant from me, which she wore for her wedding. The email really shows just how wonderful and classy Melinda is, and I just couldn’t keep myself from sharing part of it here!
I’m writing to thank you for the part you played in making our wedding day unforgettable. The rings, flowers, food, cake, dress, decorations, and especially the Snickerdoodle sign just made it so beautiful and FUN.
We will be recommending your services to everyone, and I will make mentions on my website, so that should get you several thousand eyeballs on you and your fabulous business. “
While I had heard of Melinda before this, I have since become an avid reader and really adore her writing style. Her book Mommy Confidential details real life, through illness, pregnancy, job gains and loss, as well as financial stress, all handled with wry humor and edgy wit. I also really appreciated hearing back from a bride. It’s nice to know that the day went really well, and to see pictures of your work in action!

I comb through the Etsy Finds e-mails everyday, looking at there beautiful choices for the holidays, and themed gatherings. Hoping beyond hope that I will be included. But yesterday, I didn’t have time, I was simply to busy.
But late last night, I noticed that my traffic had just absolutely exploded, and I had no idea where it was coming from. I looked through google analytics, and saw a mysterious annotation, called bronto. Well what is bronto, and why is my traffic coming from google bronto. What in the world is that I asked myself.
Well after doing some digging I found out that bronto is the service that Etsy uses to send out there Etsy Finds e-mails. But alas, I had deleted all of my emails for the day, and there is no archive for Etsy Finds. I continued my search looking through my email trash can. Until there it was, the Etsy Find, Tell your Friend Veronica… It’s Time to Celebrate Hanukkah! And it had in it under the gifts for men, my beautiful, Song of Solomon Dog Tag Necklace. Woo Hoo!!!
