Where in the World are Our Readers?

Over the last 6 months, we have been busy traveling and spreading the word about Baby Behavior. We've been to nearly every county in California (there are 58) as well as several other states, including Arizona, Maryland, Tennessee, Nevada, and Texas. With all the time we spend in airports, hotels, and restaurants, we have had great opportunities to see parents and babies interacting in a variety of situations.

Just last week, while sitting in an airport, Jane noticed a couple with 2 young children, one of whom was a little fussy. She watched the father walk patiently back and forth with the drowsy and irritable baby while the mom played with the older child. Like she always does, Jane smiled at the family to show that she understood what they were going through and soon after, she started a conversation with the parents. As they talked, Jane found out that the parents had read our blog! She was so excited to meet parents who have been reading the blog and benefiting from the information!

When Jane got back to the office and told me this story, I began to think about how easy it would be for people, from almost anywhere in the world, to stumble across our blog posts. So, to satisfy my curiosity and give us a better idea about who our readers are, we'd like to ask you where you're from and how you heard about Secretsofbabybehavior.com. We'd also love to hear your ideas for future posts! To post a comment, just click the comment link at the end of this entry. Thanks!

Next time: Back to Twins!

  5. I live in PA. I heard about your blog from my sister. She works at the local library and does a baby story time. She was doing research for her story time when she came across your blog. Since I was expecting my first baby at that time she passed along the link to me.

  10. My coworker (who is my biggest supporter with breast-feeding) sent me the link when I was struggling with my little girl's sleeping. She still doesn't sleep well (because my husband and I haven't really done anything to help her along...), but I love reading this blog and getting helpful tips from it! I'm in Columbus, OH!

  11. I am from San Jose but live in North Carolina now. Kathy Sweeney sent me the link to your blog. Your start date coincided with the birth of my first child so it was perfect timing to have some extra advice. I love to read your blog and have passed the link on to many friends. Thanks!
