Business As Usual

MckMama has been back home for approximately 2 days now and things are already back to normal.

Things have been very busy on her end. She posted a blog post that generated lots of drama and criticism and has already started a giveaway for this week.

In addition to all of the breast milk that she transported (along with clothing, a camera, her cell phone, a laptop, an electric breast pump, a cooler, etc.), MckMama was also able to bring back coffee beans from her trip to Harar, Ethiopia. In her current giveaway, MckMama is giving away ten one-pound bags of coffee beans to one lucky winner. Readers can enter this giveaway by leaving a comment on MckMama's blog post and they can also enter a second time if they sign up to receive a copy of the Global Hope Network International (GHNI) newsletter.

Speaking of GHNI, I'm not sure what is going on with their website, but it has been down for the majority of the past two days. The site will appear for brief periods of time, but you may get an error message or a blank screen the next time you try to access it.

Thing have been busy over here, too. The previous post became bogged down with comments in less than 24 hours. There is a lot of new information floating around in the comment section on the last post, but I am going to hold off on addressing those issues unless/until we can find more information to support these comments.

For those of you who are new to this blog, I want you to know that this site does not have a Twitter account or a Facebook account. I am aware that there are individuals out there who repeatedly post negative comments that are directed at MckMama and her readers on Twitter or take direct quotes from here and put them on Twitter, but I am not behind that activity nor do I endorse it. I know that MWOP had posted something similar in the past, but I would prefer that we keep our comments and discussion on this site. I just don't believe those comments are going to have the desired impact on MckMama or her readers. It seems that those comments typically end up turning off MckMama's readers who are starting to question her and make it more difficult for them to keep an open mind about the information that is shared here.

Stay tuned for more information on the big giveaway for a Nook or Kindle to two MckMama readers that make a donation for a "great cause".
