“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” -Dr. Seuss
In the many months that I've been doing this little thing called blogging, I've gotten to know a few other blogs, and bloggers, and bloggers who blog about blogging or not blogging. Through it all, I've been encouraged and supported, and so now it's my turn to say, hey, these (five) chicks are awesome.
Andy from Crazy with a side of Awesome Sauce writes about her life, sex, two crazy furry felines, and music, among other things. She also is an amazing photographer, and she claims she has talent behind the mic. Her love of karaoke is one of the things that made me take notice, so much so that I even gave her a shout out on her birthday. I won't put my Thirty is Dirty picture up for just anyone, but Andy deserves it. She's crazy, and awesome, and saucy.
I've mentioned Erin from Mixed Mama Project before, and one of the reasons that I'm writing about her now is that I hope she'll keep blogging. We met when I was new to this world and she was growing a mixed baby in her belly. We commiserated over what it's going to mean to be a white mom of a mixed baby girl, and what the hell we're going to do about that curly hair. Yes, she is an official mama now, and little baby A is giving her a run for her money. She hasn't had much time to blog, but I'm begging her to come back....
Cheryl from Mommypants is someone that I have looked up to for awhile now, and only partly because she's a recovering sports writer (yes, I'm jealous). She's also damn funny. Recently, she started a weekly feature called Mommypants Moment, where she invites other bloggers to write about their "moments" as mothers. Fun, real, heartbreaking, or just plain hilarious moments in parenting. She's proof that it's cool to be a mom, and a mom that blogs, and to have a blog that honors other moms.
Dana is The Kitchen Witch, one of my favorite food blogs. But she's not all about food. She's a mom, a former teacher, writer, and personal chef. So yeah, she's a lot about food, but she also writes about her family, and she's snarky and funny, and she makes me want to eat and drink. You know, more than I already do.
I discovered Kelly from Naked Girl in a Dress after she discovered me and decided to review papoe on her blog. I knew that she obviously had great taste because she seemed to like me and my blog, but she also is someone that is searching for ways to be happy. Intentionally happy. And while I might not always be warm and fuzzy on the outside, I have a little of it inside, and I look forward to her posts. She's insightful and honest and real. But no, she's not naked.
If you have a moment or two, check out these fabulous ladies. They make me smile even when life makes me want to scream.
