    While you were busy writing and posting a great dairy free chocolate cake (looks yummy!), I’ve been very busy with my social networking lately!

    Which brings me to the reason for this post:

    I am really very sorry that this is a form letter πŸ™

    However we spent days following everyone on the Simply Follow list from the Mom Bloggers Club, and out of 690 people, maybe only 10 followed us πŸ™

    I don’t know if you joined our blog or not, but if you have a moment, could you PLEASE go over to http://www.kiboomu.blogspot.com and give us a quick follow?

    Again, sorry for this form letter, but I am going to to back to ALL 690+ people that we followed and leaving this note. Hopefully we will get a super great turnout now!
