The Top D: Oct ’10

by Leighann on October 3, 2010

Even though numbers consume us every minute of the day, only about once a month do I take a look at my stats to see what my popular posts were and how people came to visit D-Mom Blog. I realized that it might be valuable to share some of this with you. Maybe you missed a moving post or didn’t realize there was a great resource. Or maybe you are a new reader (welcome!). Without further ado, here is the top content from September.
