Who Am I?

  • My life as a wife, mother, and child of God. I can tell a good joke, but only at my own expense. I can tell ya how to parent, but only by first failing. And I can tell you how to get to Heaven, but you gotta get there on your own.

Hi there :)

I know what you mean about the Blogher forum/community - and now that I don't run their ads anymore I am "over there" less and less.

However, having read the schedule for the conference, there are lots of topics that interest me, and I would love to meet some of my bloggy friends/heroes face-to-face.

Next year it is in New York - and IF we can sort out our planned holiday for next year to be in US then, then to my amazement dh said last night that I should try to attend for one day if I can manage it. Sooooo tempted!

Maybe we should start a new group for sahm christian blogging mums just like us? Maybe it would be a community of TWO!


Can I join and make it three? Amanda, this was so true. I went over there and got amazingly lost. I saw a thread on the MCK blog about blogher and no one there got it either. I'm so glad it's not just me. For a while I thought it was because I had been homeschooled. :)

Happy Sunday! I am making way through all of the comments I received when I was featured on SITS. It really is a great SITSahood.
Thank you so much for visiting me and have a blessed day!

Loved the JK wedding dance post below. :)


A ha. No wonder I am not successful. I was not in attendance at BlogHer either...I is all coming together! I AM A LOSER!!


Goodness - now I have violated rule no. 2 - spell things correctly. Was that rule No. 2? Anyway- I meant to say "It" is all coming together. I'm sure you were wondering ;-)


Thank you for making me feel less of an outcast here in blog land. I too found the blogher website to be difficult to understand and while yes some of the topics at the seminars look great I keep thinking if I can't navigate around the website, how would I ever fit in at the seminars


OK I admit it, I was lurking on your blog. But I have to comment on this because I agree totally! I don't get it either. I had the asme blogher experience you did. And now, thanks to you I don't feel so alone anymore, haha!

I am enjoying your blog very much, came here from a comment of yours on MckMama's forum (that I didn't understand either but still thought it was funny). I'm a little slow, I guess :)


PS I can't spellcheck, either!


Posting a little late here, but I totally agree with you and your commenters on this one. I created an account with them a few months ago and signed up to be on their 'waiting list' for advertising. But mostly, it's just confusing.

I am posting a little late, too. I just discovered your blog (from MckMama) and have been back reading a bit to get to know you. I agree. I don't get it either. But then, I also don't mommy blog as well. Currently, our blog is really about posting pictures and funny stories of our kids so family all over the country can see. But I am enjoying all of your baking blog entries, and am drooling over the macro lens, even though I'm not a photographer.

Well thank you for taking time to comment!  It such a pleasure to find out someone new has stopped by and is enjoying what they are seeing... thank you for being so darn sweet!

I'm off to visit you!

Ok! See, I had the same experience at BlogHer. I don't get it. I am glad I am not the only one.

I thought I was just a poor, confused soul.
