Even when Mrs Mom proposed that we start this blog, we didn't really put much thought into it - other than we wanted to share our experiences and love of shooting with other women. Our "tribe" has grown on its own for the past few years, pulled together by a love of shooting. Though our number of followers is small, we are read (according to StatCounter, Google stats, and RealTime Stats) world-wide.
Last year, when I came back from SHOT Show last year, I put more thought and energy into this blog and what we wanted to accomplish with it. Guess what? What we want out of the blog now is the same thing we wanted from the blog when we started it: to share our experiences and our love of shooting. Maybe we'll post something you find helpful, maybe we won't, but we won't stop sharing what we know and love.
jwbydesign has been working on creating a web-badge, logo for business cards, and t-shirts for us. At first, I wasn't sure about business cards for a blog. But how many times have you told someone about your blog and then had to find a scrap of paper to scribble your URL on? I don't know about you, but it happens to me all the time. Plus, when we go to SHOT Show next year, they'll come in handy to drop into all of the drawing entry boxes.

The t-shirs are purely for fun and promotion of the blog. We'll donate some to National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day for give-aways and sell the rest, so if you're interested, let me know. I know a lot of people I'm going to be buying shirts for as gifts - say, pretty much my whole family.

them for us and I can't wait to get mine.
This "branding" thing is kind of fun. Wonder what took me so long to figure it out?
