Blog Gems 4/7 - 4/13

Hey, thanks for your comments yesterday.  They all make me smile, and feel normal (at least mostly - ha), and want to invite you all over to my house for cupcakes or something.  Anyway, I love you guys.  Yesterday was better, and today it is the weekend.  I will take it. :)

Who doesn't love chubby, grass-stained little feet?

Now, another good week in the blogosphere (and other places)... Here are some of my favorites:

"On Passing Down Faith: An Unofficial Guide by Amanda on A Deeper Story

"Simple Home, Simple Life?" by Simple Mom

"What Christians Need to Know About Mental Health" on A Holy Experience

"Top Ten Ways I Was a Perfect Mom Until I Had Kids" by Carrie Goldman for The Huffington Post

"What I Didn't Expect to Feel after Chidbirth" by Christie O. Tate for The Huffington Post
(How good is Huff Post, btw?)

"5 Ways to Cultivate Friendships" on Allume

And a great post on staying because God said so from Courtney Digman for On the Heights

Also, while we are on the subject of really good blogging, I've nominated my friend Erika's powerful "Letter to New Moms on Infertility" for Blogher's 2013 Voices of the Year.  First, if you haven't already, you must go read the post.  It is life-changing, or at the very least, heart-changing.  Then, please take a second and go vote for her right here.  Thank you!!!  (If you are member of Blogher - and anyone can sign up - be sure to nominate your favorite/best posts too here.  I'd LOVE to see you in Chicago in July!!)

Have a great weekend!

P.S. When do you read blogs?  I've realized since my break that reading blogs is one of the great time sucks for me.  I love it, but it can be sooo bad too.  I'm considering only allowing it on the weekends, and just using that time to browse, catch up, etc. but I have major FOMO (fear of missing out).  Any thoughts?


  1. I read while breastfeeding. (You know, after lovingly gazing at my baby and bonding...) For this reason and this reason alone I'll breastfeed until he's a teenager. Or I'll have another baby. Or maybe I'll let you figure it out and you can share. :) Blog reading is a time suck, but it is way better than tv.

  2. Aw yay, thanks, friend! Although 'life-changing' might be overstating it a bit...I normally reserve words like that to describe new makeup products or fast food desserts...but to each her own. :)

  3. I do mine every few days... it is a time suck but I have the same fear. It takes me awhile to get through them, so I only do it when I know I have the time... :)


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
