Ope! I Need Your Help!

I just wanted to take a moment and thank all readers who have liked my posts so far! It has really helped build up support on this new venture!

If you haven’t already, I would like to invite you to visit and like/follow the respective Mitten Dad social media pages at Facebook, Twitter etc via the icons at the top of the site. Not only does it help boost engagement, but a lot of times there is great content I’d like to share that I think is of value, but can’t always get to writing a post right away.

Thank you again to everyone for your continued support! It provides a lot of motivation in this adventure, and as always of there are any topics you’d like to see covered, or would like to submit a story of your own, please let me know! We can all learn from one another!

Have a great rest of your weekend!
