I hope this isn't too much of a surprise for those of you who don't know me personally, but we're calling it a day here at Mama411. We'll do our best to keep our plates spinning until the end of the month. However, I'm already working on another business venture that will make keeping this version of the website up impossible. A big thank you to all of our advertisers over this past year! And an even bigger thank you to every single person who has used and shared Mama411 with their friends over the years. If any of you are interested in sticking with me, I'm going to keep Mama411 up as a blog simply because I enjoy writing, and I hate to lose the community we've built here over the years. We should have it up and running in about a week.
