Intent Web Awards

I’ve been blogging for just about four years now. Happy Healthy Hip Parenting was founded in August of 2007 and while it has brought me some great recognition over the years and introduced me to some great friends along the way, I really wouldn’t be doing what I was doing if it weren’t for the fact that you, my readers, come here and support me with your comments and share my articles with your own friends and family.

For you, I am grateful.

I’m also grateful for the Intent website, where I first listed my blog and began seeing my traffic stem from. Intent is an awesome website and community and one that I don’t visit often enough. Ironically, the profile pic that they use for me – the one with their little icon in the bottom corner – is the same one I use for just about everything so even though I don’t visit their site daily, I’m always reminded of them and how supportive they have been over the years.

Just today, I looked back at my previous intentions and one jumped out at me that I just have to share: “My intent is to be open to love.” I posted this back in July of 2009, just one month before I started dating the man who is now my husband. Pretty cool, right?!

Living with intention is something we should all strive for. The supportive communities you can join through the Intent website are wonderful. Similar to status updates on other social sites, you simply update your Intention whenever you see fit. Others can then support your intention and encourage you to reach your goals.

My new goal is to win their Best Parenting site award! If you have a few seconds, you can vote for us in the 2011 Intent Web Awards under their Parenting category. You can vote once a day through August 20th – no sign-ups, logins or “likes” required!

Please let me know how I can support you!
