I spent many, many, many hours over the weekend streamlining the blog labels. When I first started the blog, I didn’t really know what labels were for. I recently came to realize people will search using labels. So, I went through each post and made sure all labels were succinct and consistent throughout the blog.
By doing this, it should be easier for you to find answers to your problems and questions. You can go to the Blog Labels section on the left side of the screen and look through the various labels to find a topic that interests you. You can then click on the link and it will show you all published posts with that label. Labels are updated immediately, so the list will always be up to date.
80-90% of the questions I get from people are answered by me pasting a link to a previously written post. I am hoping that by streamlining the labels, people will be able to find answers to their questions, leaving more time for the 10-20% of questions that haven’t previously been answered by me in a post. Once I have a newborn this spring, I will have even less time available to answer questions, so I want to make it all as efficient as possible 🙂

Val – congrats and best wishes for your third! Thank you so much for all you’ve done to share your experience and insight on using the techniques from babywise and the baby whisperer. We had our first in September. After a month of chaos (DS was in charge of every aspect of the schedule), I went looking for a new approach. I have several friends who have used babywise and swear by it. I wouldn’t have known where to start without your blog. Thank you!The updated tagging really helps, that’s exactly how I navigate the site. You are truly a godsend.

Holly Jean–Thanks! I am glad to know it helps. It took me a while to figure out that is one way people do things, but I figured it out! Hopefully it will make everything more efficient for those who do things that way.
