Tuesday Testimonials.......

Blogs, Blogs and More Blogs!
One of the great things about jumping into the Blogging world, is that I've been able to connect with some fabulously talented ladies. Last month, one of those ladies, Ruthie from The Chronicles of Ruthie Hart, offered up the chance to highlight some of our blogs through her own blog page. I thought this was a pretty cool idea. I for one am all for helping other women out. I've never subscribed to the idea that you have to work against others in order to succeed....there's plenty of room at the top. Instead of pushing someone out of the way to get there, why not extend a hand and pull someone else up with you?

That being said, I'd like to introduce you to some of my favorite bloggers.......

Howdy! My name is Ruthie and I am a southern newlywed wife, mama to a cute chunky French bulldog and love of all things crafty. My blog chronicles my life, everything from my relationship with Jesus, the ridiculous costume parties my husband plans and trying to become Suzie Homemaker while balancing a full time job in software marketing. In my house, we love, we hug, we live out loud, we make mistakes and make fools of ourselves. Oh, and I blog all about it!

Barbara - My blog is Zero to 60 and beyond which I started 5 months before my 60th birthday to come to grips with the fact that I still felt 30 (and probably always will) but now I was on the other side of middle aged?!?  I refuse to accept that.  
While kvetching about the birthday I began to realize I've had a pretty interesting life.  Then I learned that sharing my stories, especially the childhood stories, were helping others who had abusive childhoods.  That was amazing.  The blog has now become the prelude to the memoir.  
Hey, it’s me Catherine from Jotter Girl.  I’m constantly writing in my jotter aka notebook, coming up with stories and observations to share on my blog.  Stop over for a visit and find one of my “30 Second Stories” which is usually good for a quick giggle or read an “Open Letter to...” where I write to recipients ranging from Abercrombie & Fitch to the country of Italy.  Getting things off my chest with a letter is a great way to vent…. even if I tend to be a bit tongue in cheek. 

You won’t find recipes, diaper stories or comments about hubby over at my place because…
1- I can’t cook
2- My kids are tweens
3- I’m divorced *

With those three things out of the way, I have plenty of time to write!  Hope to see you over at Jotter Girl soon.  Please feel free to bring a casserole.

*I cannot confirm or deny if #1 has anything to do with #3.

I'm Dee - I run a blog for women and moms called Mommy's Idea, where I highlight unique products and services with reviews, guest bloggers, and giveaways.  I've learned so much and met so many interesting people along the way.  I also write a blog called I Write for Apples, which is a mix of tidbits for parents, teachers, and writers- three of my favorite roles in life.  I'd love for you to join me! 

So now, what are you waiting for? Hop on over, check out their blogs, leave a comment, and tell them I sent you!

  1. Thanks Adrienne! This is a great way to spread the word about blogs you enjoy. Not sure what happened to my photo, sorry it looks kind of fuzzy. Hope to meet some new readers/other bloggers!

  2. Adrienne you are terrific! Thanks so much for the shout out. I will be visiting all the blogs very soon.

  3. @ Jotter - You really aren't fuzzy! When I went down a size you looked really teeny tiny so you have to deal with being fuzzy. :) Anyway, I'm sure people will love the 30 second stories as much as I do.... :)

  4. @ Ruthie - You started it so you are very welcome! :)

  5. @ Barbara - Thanks for contributing - keep writing!
