(That's my mom's name, you don't see that very often)..
Welcome to Top Mommy Blogs!! I too am a beginner, started blogging in October of last year, and it's been so fun. I'd recommend starting a few more social outlets: Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest.
I just joined a Facebook group called Creative Bloggers Network, it's been a great group, slow which I like. Twitter parties with the veteran bloggers can be super crazy fast. We connect and share our blogs, posts, pins, tweets, etc. It's really great for networking. I'm looking for more groups now that I've got the hang of it, I think. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Congrats on blogging and have fun!
