Blogroll


I like to regularly visit the blogs listed below. I am however, in no way responsible for the content appearing on those blogs, nor does my linking to them mean that I agree with everything they post.

Mom Blogs - Giveaways, Columns, Community and more. 5MinutesforMom is a resource every mom blogger should have on their blogroll.

Photobucket Kailani’s blog was one of the very first I stumbled upon as I delved into the blogging world. She has the most unique blog design and her content is always upbeat. Lots of fun posts about her kids, life as a flight attendant and plenty of giveaways for great products.

Metropolitanmama.net - Stephanie is a blogger I recently found and while she has tons of great giveaways, that’s not why I stuck around. My favorite posts are her more personal ones about her life with two sweet girls and what it means to her to be a momma.

An Ordinary Mom - Lucy’s posts often provide a thoughtful look into the spiritual aspect of motherhood. I like her positive messages of encouragement through the face of adversity.

Chasing Myself - Janice is mom to two teenage boys and one sweet little guy in Heaven. She’s going through the woes of nursing school at present. She keep me entertained with stories about her boys and her nursing program.

Confessions of a Pioneer Woman - Who doesn’t read the Pioneer Woman? With her crazy good pictures, story telling and interesting farm life, who wouldn’t become an instant fan?

Happy Meets Crazy - Cheryl has a lot to say and that’s not a bad thing. I like the ecclectic mix of posts she puts up and her way of referencing those who view her posts as “dear reader”.

MamaBlogga - Jordan puts up great how to posts about blogging and thoughtful posts about motherhood.

Memarie Lane - Marie is no longer active in the blogging world but her archives are definitely worth reading.

Positively Organic - Corrie posts about her life with five kids, one of whom suffered a severe vaccine reaction when he was a baby that severely handicapped him. Her courage as she faces new challenges with him is inspiring.

Richelle’s Reflections - Richelle blogs about her two kids and some of the creative projects she sews. I wish I knew how to sew like her.

Scribbit - Michelle has a great blog going on. She has regular columns, giveaways and features and is far more organized blogwise than I am. She’s also very good at expressing herself and I enjoy her stories about her kids and life in Alaska.

Shooting Space - Meg is a writer after my liking. Thoughtful, dramatic and easily able to carry you into the portrait of her words. She’s newly engaged so writing is sparse at the moment, but when she does post it’s a treat.

Strange Pulse - I enjoy Susan’s stories about her teens and her adventures with old cameras. Including her collection and the pictures she takes with each.

Temporary? Insanity - How can I possibly do justice to Kym’s blog? I was drawn in by her writing and now I’ve found so much more to connect with her on. She’s open about her life, her inhibitions, her struggles, her joys and she writes them in a such a poignant way. She a way of painting a beautiful picture in your mind and making you crave more of what she has to say.

The Lyon’s Tale - Annette is a published author of LDS Historical fiction. I enjoy her writing style and her Word Nerd Wednesday posts.

Twas Brillig - I’m a fan of Lewis Carroll so the moment I saw Brillig’s link on someone’s blog roll I had to click on it. I wasn’t disappointed. Brillig has led a very interesting life and she has no inhibtions about sharing all the juicy details of it.

You Just Gotta Laugh - Leslie’s title reflects the content of her posts. She’s a busy mom who picks out the positive in life.
