Happy Halloween!




This is Taylor, my son, when he still went trick or treating with me. He is lucky Luke in the bottom picture, and obviously Superman in the top one. That's me in my witches costume in the tip top picture. Taylor is now 21 and refuses to go Trick or Treating with me anymore. So now my Halloween's are more about tricks, than candy and stuff. That is if you don't count the times I really wanted to go, and went on my own. I actually did get lots of candy those times, because no one knew that my son wasn't at home in bed with a bad cold.

Happy Trick or Treating!

If You Could Choose A Magical Power, What Would It be? My Readers Response



Way to go Samantha! Wouldn't it be great to be Samantha, I Dream Of Jeanie, Wonder Woman, etc... just for one day? For one thing, I wouldn't have to regret the way I phrased yesterdays Question. I complicated it by including "super hero" and "magical power" in the same sentence. Which would have been a problem at all if I could "stop and start time" as Patois from Whee All The Way Home suggested as her magical power. I need to remember to stick to the original Tuesday's Question format, and ask one question every week, instead of three!

Oh well, fiddle de de dum, "I shan't think of it today, I'll think of it tomorrow" or whatever Scarlett said, another super hero of mine, besides Samantha, of course. Wait a minute... there I go again, Samantha was not a super hero, she had magical powers, geez... Although, I guess she can also be my super hero, as all of you who play Tuesday's Question are my heroes.

Anyway, If I didn't scare everyone off for next week, I plan on returning to posting one question, at a time, I promise.

Thanks to all of you for answering my THREE questions as if you had all the time in the world.

Here are my true super heroes comments with a link to their blogs. Links you should visit, if you haven't already, because you'll quickly see for yourself why I think of them/you as magical people.




Here is my first comment from my super hero as well as magical friend, From Sandee from Comedy Plus:

Wonder Woman's lasso of truth. I would love that. Can't lie to me!


Well, let me see. This is going to be a big shock, but it's Tom Selleck that I would like to take out on the town. Oh yeah!

Storm from X-Men because I like being the leader. Okay, she's hot too and that's a plus.

Fun questions Ann! I enjoyed your answers. I'd love to know more about why you chose Will Ferrel and Cheri OTeri. I LOVED those two on SNL.






Next is the hilarious and sweet Polli from Polliwog's Pond,


Fun questions Ann! I enjoyed your answers. I'd love to know more about why you chose Will Ferrel and Cheri OTeri. I LOVED those two on SNL. My answers. Superpower: I would like the ability to make anything happen by blinking like Jeannie in I Dream Of Jeannie. I loved that show when I was little! Celebrity to take on the town: I'd like to go out with my women bloggy buddies like you, Christy and Mimi. Superhero I am most like: I guess I'd have to pick Wonder Woman because she was based on the legends of the Amazon Women, and at nearly 6 feet tall, I probably look like an Amazon Woman. LOL

The funny and wonderful student and Mom, (talk about guts) Janice, from Twist And Skewer

I could answer this question many ways, but I'll stick to two. Because I am a college student I wish I had a photogenic memory. Because I am a mother to teens and a wife I wish I could have the invisibility power. Muahahahaha. :)

And of course, My buddy Patois, from Whee All The Way Home who spoke of the "stop and start time"magic I quoted.


I'm going to have to go for being able to stop and start time, including going back in time. I'll be taking Bruce Springsteen with me wherever I go. In fact, I'll spend my time back in time going to his concerts. I guess I'm most like Samantha Stevens, then, as she could go back and forth in time. (I'm recalling the colonial times, for example, when she was locked up.) Great questions, Ann.


My good friend Marja, from Dutchcorner

Hi Ann Oh what a funnie question. I always liked to have a magic wand. To change lot of things with a single touch. For example tidy my home with one tick. So a wizard would be good. I don't want celebreties to go out with. Don't know which ones are to be fun with in real life any way. You count as a celebrity so there you go.

And last, but certainly not least the hilarious Winston from Eat Your Maths. Winston didn't just wish to have powers, he acted them out!

Ann!!! Hope u got my comment... It's highly embarrassing, I dunno why, maybe it did not get through. Hmm..

Mine was Power Rangers. Full of justice, Mr Fong watched it and worshipped it when he was young, and used a stick to hit the TV, right smack where the bad Power Ranger stood. Ouch.

My parents were out, so...

I did more. I tried to spray Sprite on it (what a waste of money, LOL...), but shook it so vigorously out of anger that it exploded over myself before I could spray it on the Naughty, Horrible and Terrible Power Ranger!!!


Thank you all for taking the time out of your busy days to leave your lively and imaginative comments to Tuesdays Question. Have a fun day!

If You Had The Chance To Choose A Super Hero Or Magical Power What Would It be?





Hello, and welcome newcomers and regular readers to Tuesdays Question.


For those of you who aren't familiar with Tuesday's Question, it's a weekly post I started a few months ago, in an effort to connect with you, my readers, and spread a little link love. Also, I hope by posting your comments the following day it will work like a blog review. This way, while everyone is learning about your blog, we're also learning about the author behind your blogs title, which is you. That's right, I post the comments to my Tuesday's Question post the following day with a link back to the responding blogs.

Plus, I want to remind and encourage all of you to comment on each others comments as well, you know, as if we're engaged in conversation. But most of all I want you to be sure and have fun!

Although, I didn't use it for the main title, today's question asks how you would respond to three questions from a magical Wizard, which are...

If you had your choice of a super or magical power, what would it be?

What living celebrity would you like to take out on the town to celebrate your new super hero status? Or just take out on the town ?

And what super hero already created are you most alike?

My answers after the read more...





I would like to have the power pop in and out of places, like Betwitched, and take Cheri Oteri or Will Farrow out on the town. As far as a super hero I am most alike, I think... I'm probably more like Spiderman. Except, for some reason, I've related to Robin from Batman and Robin, lately...but, I'm not sure why?

Thanks for playing and have a fantastically fun day!

Aussie Cynics Integrity




I thought,The Little Aussie Cynic deserved its own post title, because this blog is one of the happiest places to visit on the internet. Aussie is one of my first blogging buddies in the blogosphere. I met her on blog catalog when I hardly knew anyone, and knew less about what I was doing than I do now. Can you imagine that? It was a scary experience, and the blogs author, Aussie, was so kind, reaching out to me then, as she is reaching out to me and others now, in a rare and personable manner, a manner that could put a wild boar at ease. She is responsible for a lot of my early happy memories writing A Nice Place In The Sun.

Plus, have you seen Aussie's blogs new template? The ocean colored background is warm and inviting, very much in keeping with the atmosphere the author has consistently portrayed since I first read her blog.

I hope I didn't embarrass you Aussie, I just wanted to publicly thank you for thinking of me, and I was blown away by a nomination for creativity.

Here's Aussie's post:

"After looking, reading and watching many many Blogs and bloggers I decided to issue some recognition to those fellow bloggers I feel maintain integrity in the Blogs.

bannercreator-nu-1.gif

All these bloggers incorporate within their wonderful sites, an integrity not always seen.

They share terrific stories, topics, discussions and images. All Well worth a look.

So in the spirit of Wonderful blogs

I would like to award the Bloggers with Integrity Award

to:

For Creativity

A Nice Place In the Sun

The Dandelion Tree

For The Spirit of Giving

The Santa Community Blog

For Staying True To Their Beliefs

The Painted Veil

For Social Conscience

Go Smell The Flowers

Keeping it Real

Go Paisley

So congratulations to all and keep up the fabulous work you do…. We love it!"



And Aussie we love you! In honor of Aussie's really inspiring and heartfelt gesture, I would like to award the following blogs in keeping with her format. I really liked the thought and effort Aussie put into each category, so I wanted to honor her by doing the same thing.

So without further rambling, and much hand wringing here are my choices... That is after this brief update, on Oct.30...

I would like to add that after this post was written this award made a real impact on the blogging community. It is hopping around like a cat trying to keep its balance on a slippery rooftop! After nominating Sandee from Comedy Plus in the "Spirit Of Giving" category", Aussie turned around and awarded Sandee for the same category on her blog that I nominated Aussie for in the Social Conscience category entitled, Coillision of the Willing. Now, tell me that's not some hopping around nominations. It's just like I predicted, the award is so personable blogs you know with these qualities instantly pop in your head after you read the the category. Congrats Aussie on the success of Bloggers With Integrity. And thank you Sandee from Comedy Plus for also awarding me in the category, "For The Spirit of Giving." Anyway, here is the list of my recipients...




I would like to pass on Aussie's Integrity Award to the following Bloggers...

Happy Saturday!

What Would We Do Without Friendship?


A really nice person helped me with my web site clean-up by installing the peek-a-boo posts for me. Now, if you like the summary of what might be a long post you have the choice to either continue reading, or move on to the next post. The peek-a-boo posts also offer bloggers an opportunity to post more material on their title page each day. Because, I'm a complete techno nin com poop, this blogging buddy rescued me and you, my readers, from long title page posts! Can you guess who this friend is....





It's Sandee from Comedy Plus!

In addition, I'd like to thank google for my very first ranking! Now, I feel like a real webmaster; a member of the google team, and that's something to celebrate. That is thanks to friends like Sandee, my best bud Christy, from ChristysCoffeeBreak, without whose blogging tips I would have be lost long ago. I've been real lucky in these first months of blogging, to have these friendships, in addition to many others not mentioned here. I hope you know who you are. Thanks for offering me a helping hand and putting up with my silly questions and antics each day.
This day, like all the special days we celebrate, would not be possible without the help, encouragement, and love, given freely by my friends. Thanks to all of you I'm having a great year!

The Mariuca Super Star Award!

My very best buddy Christy from Christy's Coffee Break nominated me for the Mariuca's Superstar award! I love it, love it, love it Christy!

When I read the award title I thought of a Saturday Night Live character who says I love it, love it, love it, as she kicks her legs in the air! She's kidding, well actually overacting to be funny, but I wasn't when I danced around my living room with my groovy new award, reciting I love it, love it, love it!

Evidently, Mariuca's readers missed her enough to leave comments when she was away, so she created this award to thank them. As I read Mariuca post, I realized how considerate and kind bloggers can be, or I should say friends can be. Good bloggers use the opportunity to write in a positive way, a way that makes a real difference in the lives of others every day.

I think those are the bloggers Mariuca is referring to as Superstars! Thank you Christy for thinking of me as one of those bloggers, and thank you Mariuca for creating this award. Mariuca seems like a special person, and I know Christy's friendship is a virtue. I'm happy to be on the planet with these two woman.


Mariuca SUPERSTAR Award



I think the following blogs have the characteristics so often associated with what Mariuca, Christy and I think of as a Super Star.

The Friendly Site Award!



Speedycat Hollydale is one of the nicest new friends I've met lately. And I'm not saying this because he gave me an award, ...well, no, it's because he is a nice and funny blogger, with a great sense of humor, a funny bone that runs in the family according to his post on Santa's Community blog.Evidently, on a shopping trip during the holiday's, Speedy's eyebrows were still painted from playing Santa, but nobody told him. It's a really funny post, and I think he's going to be a fun fellow blogger. I look forward to more laughs Speedy and I thank you for your generous heart.



Speedy was given this really nice award by Erina from Into The Inkpot, (isn't that a neat name?)

Erina tried to find the creator of the award to give them credit, but was unable to to find out where it originated. So please, if it's you or you know where we can credit the link, please let someone know. It's really pretty and a nice thought so everyone wants to thank the creator.

I think the following blogs are spectacular on top of being friendly:

Thanks again Speedy.

What Famous Leader Are You?





The top images are my test results for the following questions What famous leader are you?
and What Classic Movie Are You?


Because inquiring minds want to know ... I just finished reading a meme by Adrian at First Time Dad that included a question from a personality test site. The question reminded me of the kind of questions I ask on my weekly post Tuesday's Question. Except, these test questions tell you how your personality best matches your answers, as opposed to an answer you think best describes you.

Can a personality test answer questions about our personality better than we can answer them ourselves? Maybe so, and maybe not, but some of the results are pretty accurate and most the sites pretty popular.

I posted a brain function test yesterday, entitled Are you right or left brained? That one, was right on the money for me and most of you that answered. And irregardless of the opposing or supportive literature, theories and sites, the bottom line is we love taking tests. Besides, we know if we're answering the questions honestly, and if the test results are most like us. after all we know us better than anybody, right?

On the other hand, maybe not, since I would've never guessed the top results for me.
Even so, I'm still not sure I want to know the accuracy, it may spoil the fun. (Take the risk out of it.)

When I was a teenager, my friends and I used to answer questions in cosmopolitan and other popular magazines. Which goes to show, the publics interest in personality tests aren't anything new, or a thing of the past.

I think we want to understand the ways we're similar and find common ground on which to relate. Because we're social creatures, social acceptance and community are the basis of who we are and how we understand each other. The connections we make due to our similarities, in turn, influence how appreciative and tolerate we are of our differences.

Bottom line: we want to take the tests because they're fun, and we want to know and care about each other. Maybe, that's why this site is called Similarminds, because we are more alike than we realize. Celebrating our differences, while making a connection through our similarities is what I hope all of us get from Tuesday's Question. It does seem like I know everyone who regularly participates better each week. And that's because when we answer questions about our memories, experiences, and opinions, we open a window to our character.

I think this is the reason these tests do well with pinpointing the characteristics we share with famous people, because they examine the way in the questions are answered.

So go find out some things about yourself, first by stopping byFirst Time Dad and reading his meme. Then Similarminds.com to take these tests, and let me know how you did. Plus, don't forget to play Tuesdays Question, because you never know what I'm going to come up with next, the competition's getting stiff.

Oh, and for the record I'm not sure that the "power and options" comment is the way I'd like to think I'm most like JFK. What about the other obvious characteristics we share? Lol, whatever.

Are You Left or Right Brained? Happy Saturday Fun!



The Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

Are right or left brained? If you see the image turning clockwise then you use more of your right brain than your left and vice versa.

I see it turning clockwise, which makes me right brained. What do you see?

For a detailed list of right and left brain functions check out Herald Sun!

And have a happy Saturday!

My Blogging Buddies Blew Me Away With Their Comments


I was blown away yesterday by the comments to Tuesday's Question. My friends, you displayed such creative ingenuity and hilarity. I had to pinch myself between laughs to make sure I wasn't dreaming. What really got to me was how honest and down to earth you all were. I really am impressed and grateful that each and every one of you are my friends and fellow bloggers.

This weekly post is fun and ninety-nine percent of the reason is because of you, my talented comrades. I'm glad you're my readers and grateful you're my friends. Have a nice week and weekend, and be sure and have lots of great fun! However, judging by these comments, it looks as if great fun shouldn't be such a hard thing for any of you to do!

Tuesday's Question: What Is Your Favorite Age, and Guiltiest Pleasure?

Sandee from Comedy Plus Answered First:


13 Comments - Show Original Post Collapse comments

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

The greatest time in my life (except for now) was when I came of age in 1969. I wanted to be a flower child in San Francisco. Off I went to the big city, long hair, headband complete with a flower. I roamed all over the city, lived in a commune and basically did nothing productive for about two months. It was a big thrill at the time. Free love and peace was my mantra. I'll leave it at that.

I have lots of guilty pleasures now. Blogging with my buddies (you know who you are), boating and being with my husband. I enjoy my champagne and pasta. I've worked all my life to be able to enjoy these things. I just wish I could have champagne and pasta whenever I wanted. Sigh..., but this time of my life is the absolute best!

Patois at Whee! All The Way Home

The spring and summer I was 16. A great group of friends. Lots of freedom. Lots of laughing. And a boy I was madly in love with. Ahhhh.

October 16, 2007 9:49 AM

Dawn with Twisted Sister
I think I would have to say the best time of my life was when I was 18.
My guilty pleasures...My freedom and lots of boys! Funny but they didn't feel like guilty pleasures back then!

Christy at Christys Coffee Break

Hi Ann,

Good to know that you're insane, lol, I'm just kidding...haha....I love that you danced in water fountains!

Well my favorite age is right now. Weird I know. But most of my life I've been very unhappy dealing with my childhood. Finally after over thirty years I'm actually over it!! Yippee. Throw that together with me finding my true love in writing and you've got one happy Christy on a super big Coffee Break. LoL.

I see a bright future where there was once only darkness. :)

My guiltiest of the guilty pleasures would be massive amounts of coffee. Oh and let's not forget my chocolate addiction, lol.

Luv You Ann, have a great night:)

Oh and Sandee...That is the coolest thing I've ever heard!! I wish I could have been a flower child! Peace:)

Marja at Dutchcorner

My best age was about 25. I was free earned good money and with that came my guiltiest pleasures;
partying partying and partying.
We went for weekends to Antwerpen Brussel in Belgie, to Paris and The Hague.....to party and men we did

Paula at Polliwog's Pond

Love your answers Ann. I enjoyed being a kid and I loved having my babies, so I guess my favorite ages so far were 6, 22, 23, 24, 29, 31, and 34. Hee hee!

Actually I think 40 is going to be my favorite age. I'm not too young, not too old and finally have stuff figured out.

My guilty pleasures are staying up too late, chocolate, enormous margarita's, buying new computer stuff, and laughing loudly!

Winston at Eats Your Math

I always sneak talking to myself, haha. I always talk to myself in the bathroom, anywhere, maybe even teaching maths to myself! *ashamed*


Haha, hope you are well? I'm so sorry I was late for it, I missed it.. :(


Thank you all again for making me laugh. I really had a great time reading your comments. And Winston you weren't too late. In addition, I loved your comment. It is so honest, which is what one should be when writing. Good Job All of you have a great day. :)

Why Do You Blog? I've Joined The Team !



I've joined Mel's team of bloggers who are posting his "Why Do you Blog?", meme based on his recent post by the same name. Mel created the meme to help bloggers creatively showcase each blogs individual differences, and favorite posts. All you have to do is...well, he will tell you in the following meme. However, I would like to say that his meme shines the light on every blogger who participates, and I'm thrilled he asked me to be one of those bloggers. Except, I have one question I forgot to ask when he was going over the rules with the team, "Can I be the quarterback? Because the quarterback isn't tackled right?"

Thanks again Mel for including me in such a positive experience.


Here are the blogs I would like to tag to participate, but remember this is an open meme. Happy blogging everyone!

Hi, I am The Queen of Sugar in The Blogosphere but, My name is Judy in life, I am the one and only Author of Sugar Queens Dream, I am also a Co-Author at Santa's community Blog. I blog because I enjoy the aspect of friendship's gained and talking about my funky but "normal" family, the lessons of Life, Its ups and downs, the sad but real things I've had to endure and in doing so, I am able to work through the extreme aspects of life with my dignity in tact and my mood still happy, I feel that I work some of my frustrations out during the posts I compile, I then, can look back and see that I remained true to myself and the thinking I have of facing things head on and admitting I am human and with faults.
In the beginning, I blogged solely about the way I love to bake sugary sweet treats for the ones I love, and also my small business. Doing that had given me hours of happiness and a sense of control over my "need" to give to others and to feel love returned in the form of happy faces..... I then, realized, I could let some of my inner feelings out and that others didn't judge me for doing so. When I realized that other people felt the same feelings as me, it released a feeling of ultimate power over my life and my thoughts...... The post that really shows how I open myself up for others to understand me and my Blog is: The myths of smoking.

I am Geoff of Geoffandcarley.com and I blog for reasons as diverse and as fickle as my moods. Mostly I blog because I'm firmly convinced I've figured a few things out and that the world will benefit from my experience the same way I've benefited from others' experiences. One post that I feel captures my emotional involvement and my ire (but not my humor as much) is Decision time.

My name is Sindi and I have written a blog entitled Life is a roller coaster!. My blog is based on the ups and downs of everyday life. I started blogging because I was going through some hard times and I wanted to meet new people to talk to. I like to write and was hoping people might enjoy reading what I have to say. I think the most inspiring post I have written to date is We Effect So Many.

People call me the Midgetmanofsteel (although I’m neither a midget, nor made of steel). I am the sole author the blog Mental Poo: a mostly true and humorous account of things that have happened to me, are happening to me, or are just filling my head and taking up valuable space where images of women should be. You can get a sneak peek into my mess of a brain by reading “Raisins are People” – a true account of my son’s first field trip.

My name is Sandee and I have a blog called Comedy Plus. My blog is just for fun, and I started it to poke fun about everyday life. My reason for blogging is to have fun and meet new friends. I have done both beyond my wildest dreams. I have posted lots of jokes, but when ask what my favorite joke is, I always pick Anger Management

My name is Lynda. I blog to as a way to expose my writings and to spread my knowledge on the subject of love. My primary blog (I have 15) is lynda's loft. My favorite piece would be I LOVE..... I have over 300 original poems and posts dealing with the wonderful and painful world of love. I love love!

My name Adrian, although most of you probably know me as the Mighty Genie King. I am the author First Time Dad. I started blogging as a way to document my growing up pains as my wife and I raise our daughter. I hope that one day my daughter will be able to look at this and get an idea what life was like "back then". Now I blog about everything but the main focus is still the same! One of my favorite posts is Goodnight Sweetheart! Hello Basil! Eh...Who's Basil...

Hello, my name is Ann and I'm the author of A Nice Place in the Sun. I blog because I care about people and want to make them happy. My site is focused on humorous, inspiring, and nostalgic posts about life, children, and memories. My most representative post, or the post where I'm most myself is "The Craziest Experience Of My Life."

We are a team of writers, and everyone calls us NAFA, so that would be our name. We are the proud authors of NAFASG©™ - United And Dedicated Behind You™. Blogging, to us, is a form of spreading useful information and sharing our knowledge to every part of the world in order to contribute to the betterment of our global community. The post that we feel would be representative of our blog and the global community at large is The Sociological Interaction.

Hola! This is Mariuca and I blog because writing is what makes me whole. I write about anything under the sun from life, love, friends to cats and work. I tend to write best when under pressure and my personal favourite post from Mariuca is Love in Disarray.

My name is Susan and I am the Owner of ~~Wake up America ~~, which is a political, right leaning blog. I blog because I believe we need more voices out there to separate fact from fiction, to support our troops and to high light the lack of ethics from journalists today. I feel my most powerful post is called "Are You Proud to be an American......"

"Here I am :-) My name is Mauro and I'm the author of 1 Million Love Messages ... maybe the biggest love challenge in the blogosphere. Why I blog ??? Because I believe that bloggers can make a difference in the world. That's my challenge! My favourite post it's (for sure) Adam Donkus & Lizzie's Love History."

Hi there World I am Aussie, the author of Little Aussie Cynic and I want to Breathe among others. I was recently asked:"Why Do you Blog?" this takes me back to the beginning... I started blogging in an attempt to get people thinking, using my cynical humour as a tool to make people laugh, think and at times get the blood pumping.... Each of my Blogs takes in a little peice of my varied personality but the one which discribes me best would have to be There is Always a Natural Way the latest edition to the Aussie Cynic Family...

I'm Holly from Mama Pajama. I am a stay-at-home mom to my two year old son, Cameron. He is such a joy in our lives. I just stumbled across blogging after watching a television show. I wish I had found it sooner, as it has been so much fun meeting people all across the globe. It's my own place to share about my family, interests, likes, dislikes, etc. I love that I've found my own little circle of blog buddies that will read the stuff I have to say....as mundane or silly as it might be! LOL It's fun leaving others comments, and knowing that something I post or comment just might make someone smile that day. I'm already having a hard time turning off my computer at night, so I'm hoping to keep this blogging addiction under control. My favorite post so far is Lucky Girl.

I'm Kathleen of Invisible Keepsakes.Well, I blog because if I don't, I'll go mad and get very hard to live with. I need a tableau for my creative endeavours. I write poetry. That is to say, I am a poet. I'm not a great poet; nor am I a deep poet, but I love wordplay and creating images and entertaining people with my ideas and interpretations of events and news and random topics. I've written quite a lot of poems, some have even been published, but I think the one I would have you read is Bad Dawg #7 because I feel so strongly about it.

I am Beth or Skipper - whoever you are most comfortable with, and I author My Life Starts at Forty Two. I am really trying to turn my life and myself around - and become the best me that I can. It is not always easy with family, illness, etc, but I refuse to give up. This is my journal of journey. One of the best posts that I can use to describe me is The Decision.

I am Delirious the creator of Lifeonalimb. I always wished I could have my own little newspaper and write all of the columns myself. But since I probably wouldn't make enough money to pay for the paper to publish it, I decided to go the "free route" instead. I don't think this is my best post, but probably one that most people would enjoy; death-defying Stop in, check it out, leave a comment, then go get therapy.

I am Bridget from "And Miles To Go Before We Sleep" I am a stay at home mom of five young children, ages 1-12, three of which have special needs. Two of my boys are afflicted with Autism so it is a very busy household. I started bogging because our family moves around a lot and we ar very far away from our families and this was a great was to stay in touch with them. I met so many great people through blogging and I enjoyed it so much that I now feel like it's another job (one that I enjoy). My favorite post so far has to be The Old Tree In The Middle Of The Dry Desert

My name is Winsome Gunning and I am an artist who started blogging about `The Creative Process’ and `The Power of Listening to Silence’ on Winsome Gunning Art Walk. From my own listening to silence came A New Green Earthmy personal voice for green change. About DioxinAbout Simple Ways and A Green Earth are also my voices for green change. On these two blogs I publish contemporary green news from around the world.

I am the wily Blogolope, and I blog for fun and to get things off my chest and hopefully be funny. I created Blogolope because I thought it would be fun, simple as that. Blogolope to Assist Santa, Elves if a funny post.
is an example of the issues about which I have felt compelled to write.

Hi, My name is Janice Ng & I'm the miracle mum from "This is a miracle". I started to blog to document the foot steps of my 2 boys : Amos & Zachary. With this blog, they are able to look back what they have been through: their joy, excitement, laughter, fighting, crying, screaming... etc when they grow up. One of my favourite post is "The loving brothers" on how the 2 brothers showed they tenderly care through a piece of strawberry cake!!

Hi! My name is Crystal, my middle name actually. I am the author of Choc Mint Girl. I started to blog because I need my own space to 'just write', but what I find here is quite inspiring and I am amazed at how many different bloggers with different approach ended up as great friends and inspire each other. It doesn’t matter what I blog about as long as the two parties find the connection in one another, that will be the best reason of why do I actually blog. I guess my most relevant post is my very first innocent post, Getting Started.

My name is Michelle of Crow's Feet . I started writing because I love words and wanted to make people feel... and think, but I soon realised that writing is about connecting. Because the more we connect to others - the more we learn about ourselves. I'm picking my post Small Miracles as representing who I am, why I blog... and why I love the internet.

My name is Claire and I created the blog Bebo Author. I write because I'd go crazy otherwise and I blog to help others (especially young, unpublished writers) share their work. I want to promote writers and give people a place to share their advice and tips for others. My favourite post is a hard one to pick so I'll say Writing Tips.

My name is Stine, a Norwegian mother of 6, and I blog at Mother's Home!. I have recently created another blog/site, Mother's Got A Dot Com. Why? First, for my own enjoyment. I've gotten to "know" so many lovely people since I started, and blogging has become an addiction (Sound familiar?) Second, I'm continually amazed that I can actually earn a little extra doing what I enjoy so much... I also get to let out some steam sometimes, as in Stage Mums.


My name is c.a. Marks and I blog for many reasons. At first I started a blog for my knitting, then I moved over into the political arena, and now I'm doing a personal blog, Sex and the South, that was inspired by my all time favorite HBO original series, "Sex and the City". Yes, I want to be Carrie Bradshaw, with a twist. What kind of twist, I have no idea. I am in the blogging business for the fame and fortune....KIDDING! No, for real, I like to blog because like everyone else it gives me an outlet. There, that's it, nothing amazing and profound about it. Thanks!


My name is Misty Dawn, and I blog from the middle of nowhere, at My Dogs Keep Me Sane. I began this blog at the advice of one of my best friends. It's purpose was to give me a place to talk about the frustrations of moving to another state and moving away from my family and friends. Now, it has become so much more than that. Blogging has become an addiction for me. I now use my blog to earn income; I have met so many fabulous friends; I share my writing and my photography; I share my stories, whether they be funny, serious, or sad; I can share my frustrations and my emotions without worrying about being judged for what I say... There are no words to encompass what blogging and the people of the blogosphere mean to me... and that is why I blog. My favorite post would have to be Rough Tough Farm Gang because it is a fun post that will make people smile. I'm not saying it is my best or most thought-out post, but it is my favorite.


The Internet World knows me by LadyJava. My first blog, "how to make money online" was actually the reason why I started blogging. I wanted to share to the world that I was making online share my experience about it. However I enjoyed blogging so much that the habit quickly caught on and I began writing a few other blogs as well. This blog, however, is by far my favorite blog as I've made many friends from all over the world and I continue blogging as an avenue for me to share my life with friends and would-be friends. My favorite post is "Coffee and Me" as I am officially a coffee addict..

Hello my name is Deborah author of Climate of Our Future, I also co-author She Walks in Beauty. I blog with passion for our environment. I started this blog because I believe that we as bloggers have a very loud voice in this blogosphere. that By sharing what knowledge I find about our environment would not only benefit the blogger but also our environment. I also blog about Beauty, because no matter how harmed and polluted our world has become I can still see the beauty within. My favorite post would have to be the one about plastic in the Pacific twice the size of Texas.

I am Snooper, owner and the main author of Take Our Country Back. There are several authors that post to my blog and I deeply respect their writings even when at times, I have slight disagreements with their posts. Then again, who wants automatons? I blog because those of us which think along the same lines as I do, are not offered a voice in The Main Stream Media. I blog to support The Troops and nothing but The Troops seeing that I myself and our oldest son ARE Troops. The most hated post from the far left which equates to the most powerful post is We Had A Patriotic Nation Once.


My name is Angie and a stay at home mom to handful soon-to-be 10 month-old son Casey James. A wife to a wonderful guy who loves golf all his life before we met. I blog because it's a comfort zone to someone like me who's living in place miles away from my real home. I have several blogs that I give much of my attention to namely, The Simple Times In Life, The Daily Matters, Shop Online, Daily Digest and Glittery Report among others. The most recent relevant post that I can share would be For those who love the Philosophy of Ambiguity.

My name is Tammy and I'm Mom Knows Everything. I don't pretend to know everything, but I tell my kids I do. I started blogging when a friend suggested it. I have found that not only is it a great way to relieve stress, but also a great way to feel better about myself. It gives me a sense of accomplishment. I think my favorite post would have to be My Dad And John Wayne. It may not be the best post or the one that got the most comments, but writing this post really helped me deal with the death of my father.


Hi, I’m Puteri. I’m a stay-at-home mom to two pre-schoolers, and run a long arm machine quilting business from home. I blog because it is a form of documenting my life. I have never really kept a diary and blogging is as good as keeping a diary. I have six blogs - Puteri’s Musings, Puteri’s Musings 2, Puteri’s Musings 3, and Health and Beauty Notes, are four of them. My favorite post is D-I-V-O-R-C-E, because that was my second post when I first started blogging and one of the main reasons for me to start blogging. I needed to put into words the way I felt when my dear friends went through a divorce.


Hello! My name is Emila and I run my own blog, Emila’s Illustrated Blog. I started blogging in Friendster, later moved to Blogspot and later later moved to my own domain for good.

I am Malach the Merciless the brains behind Dropping My Daily Stool Sample. I blog for three reasons. 1. I am a skilled artist but not a skilled writer, and this helps me practice my writing. 2. To plug my stuff, and maintain my D Level Internet Celebrity Status. 3. Cause it’s fuggin’ fun. A post most representing me is way back on my old blogger blog back in June of 2005, my Hit List.

My name is Carrie and i am keeping busy raisig my four children and trying to keep two blogs on the go. Rantings of a Woman and Jabber Jaws. I first got started with blogging when I was seeing how much fun my friend was having and to be honest the money was really starting to sound nice. Now it has become so much more than money with all the new friends I have been making. A couple post that I find myself thinking back to is first Baking Cookies with my 3 year old son, sometime it's the little things that matter the most and Helping a Friend, she is so dear to me and I would do anything to help her out. Kim you've got my vote!


I am Noah, from the blog Patrick on Animals. I blog to express myself and pass along some thought on animals. The post Noah's Ark is pretty cool.

Hi, my name is Genie and I'm a blogoholic. My blogs include, but are not limited to, Photographer in Training, Tarot Reader, and Tarot 101. I don't know that there is any one particular blog post that is especially revealing about me, but this one contains photographs that I am particularly fond of, especially since my husband is in one of them and because I shot them in my own town: Fire. I blog because I live in a small community with few kindred souls. I blog so that I can connect.


My name is Jeni and the name of my blog is Down River Drivel, which basically means "hogwash" or b.s. in a politer way. I blog as a means to remember - things about my family, my kids and especially my grandchildren or events from my youth, back in the dark ages and also, as a way to practice just playing with words. My favorite post would be this one, titled "Deep Roots" which explains a bit more about me.


I started blogging around end March 2007. My earlier intention was to store my recipesAward For You, My Great Friend.

It was truly a great pleasure to know them and I am honored to award them in

My name is Anna, and I blog at Beth & Cory's Mom and A Mind Forever Voyaging. I originally started blogging because our library was planning to start a blog, and I wanted to see which blogging site would work best - so I signed up for a few. First I just played around with the design. I'd post my thoughts on what was going on around the house or in the news occasionally, but I wasn't very consistent. Then I started reading other people's blogs and making friends, and it was so much fun that I started posting more! One of my more memorable posts is Oh, I am Good, because I stepped outside my comfort zone and personality type and actually let people know I messed up.


I am known as Sometimes Saintly Nick. I blog because I enjoy blogging, have met quite a few very neat bloggers through the years, and have hopefully provided a few laughs for folks and some thought provoking posts on issues of justice and peace, The blogs that I write are: Nick’s Bytes/, UCC Online, and I assist my cat, Alex, in writing his blog, Alexicon: A Feline’s Life with his Human

HI! I'm Pat.I am a young mother of two.Being a homemaker sometimes can really makes me feel bored.I never knew about blogging until August this year.Honestly,I used to think that blogs are for kids and those who have too much spare time and have nothing else to do.But since I started blogging, I got to know a lot of wonderful people around the world.I have 3 blogs - Asiana , Nutrimetics , and Iban School.I dont have any favourite post because theyre all my favourites! :) Hehehe.


Helo, Nightwing here. Always wonder about the world of blogging and what it was all about. So i gave it a go and thus Carpe Diem was born. After only a few months of blogging, have made many new friends around the world. I like to read books and have also use my blog to post book reviews. Here is one example of it. Happy blogging.

My name is Suzanne and my blogs are Miss Kitty Fantastico and The Synergizer's Journal. (I'm working on coming up with better names!) I started blogging back when it was called journaling. I was a newly wed and needed an outlet for my thoughts and feelings. Later, I became hooked on comments and started meeting a lot of new people. One of my favorite things about meeting friends online is that you get to talk to people who you probably wouldn't meet in real life. Now, I'm a working mom and have started blogging for money to help make ends meet. My favortite post (at least in recent memory) was a Mama Talk column I wrote about my husband for Father's Day. It's called Priorities change when husbands become fathers.

Hello there, I’m AK, basically it stands for Ahmad Kamal. My blogsite is Yang Terdalam (slightly meaning The Deepest). I’ve created this blog to spread what I feel inside to the world, as I myself found that there so much things that I have to let it unsaid in this reality world. So, I’ve created Yang Terdalam to fulfill my needs to give people my perspectives and poits of views on certain aspect. I usually just ramble myself out in my blog, and only some people can stand my ‘tone’ in the blog, as I usually express my depress tone. Well, can’t blame me, I have an idea to write things when I’m in depress mood. The most memorable entries that I’ve been made are Am I Not Good Enough?/ The Promo – Am I Not Good Enough Part 2 / Am I Not Good Enough – Part 2 / Gunung Ledang Mind-Field Journey / Saya Anak Malaysia!!! / Nescafe Bodoh! Just Take your time, visit my blog, and get to know me!


Hello world! My name is Lucel Juliana, you can call me Juliana. I author the blog, My World. I'm a newbie blogger and I'm so loving it. I blog because, I love to write and I want to document my life as a stay at home wife in my newfound home: New York. And if anyone out there tries to tell the story of my life, I prefer that it's going to be me. The one post I'm really passionate about is Cell Phone Hazard . I want to spread awareness about lurking dangers on cell phone use.


I don't know why I ever started blogging. I think it was an experiment. My business blog was created as a response to customer questions. All my other blogs, and I have too many to list them here, came into existence because it was too difficult to create just one blog to cover so many dreams and ideas. So now you know: I blog to share dreams. I do it with Pamil Visions Tutorials and I do it with Romania Simply Surprising. And sharing dreams will never stop... This list shares dreams too. And I am happy to be part of a collective dream. We can change the world when we dream together.


Hello World! I’m Momma Bean. This little blog started out as a way for my out-of-state sisters and sister-in-law to feel more involved with the Beans as they grew up. I didn’t know that it would be around this long, that I’d enjoy it this much or that I would find such insight and camaraderie from complete strangers who, where ever they are, are going through the same things as me, being a mother. So, now I blog to share my special Beans with family and friends, to rave and whine about the life of a (still) new mom and to learn from such amazing women around the world. One of my favorite posts is this one about me and self-image and passing this onto the Beans. Too many women do this to themselves and I admittedly still criticize myself in front of the Beans.


My name is Jamilla a.k.a Jamy. What I Feel, I Just Blog is really my inner voice to tell anything that I am aware of in my life. I started blogging since June 2007, not long ago. I am happy that I can share and give love, happiness, caring and support through blogging together with a group of my bloggermates. My quote is "Make difference in your life by giving love, happiness, hope, joy, support and encouragement to the world!" The post that I really appreciate and respect myself is Turn Blogging Into A Real World . My first step towards the difference and miracle to the people who is around me.


My name is Kristine and my blog is Fitzsimmons Family Adventures. I started blogging as a way to keep family in the loop. We have family all over that we don't see on a regular basis and it's a great way to let them know what's been going on with us. I've met a lot of great people and I love reading about their lives as well. I'm a stay at home mom and when I was introduced to blogging for money, I was pretty excited about the opportunity to supplement our income. I post LOTS of pictures and videos of my son Jackson. It's an addiction. One of my favorite posts is from March of this year because it captures so many of his great expressions.


I'm Deb, and I blog at Mom of 3 Girls because, well I have three little girls here at home! :) I originally started my blog because I began to read other blogs that I found online and was inspired to share my own thoughts. I keep doing it because I've found it to be a creative outlet for my thoughts and emotions, a wonderful way to keep in touch with people and because of the amazing community of other bloggers that I have found. It's also a great way to help keep my sanity as I juggle work, home, kids and the rest of my life! I think my favorite post has to be My Two Jobs because it sums up everything that I feel about my life right now.

My name is Joy or thejoybird my blog is A Day In the Life... I started blogging to help me get through the day. I am a first time mom and although I have the most beautiful, wonderful 13 month old daughter I still feel like pulling my hair out on a daily basis. I wanted some place where I could vent and connect with other moms and also make new friends (who aren't moms). Now I'm also trying to get into blogging for money, but first and foremost, I'm doing this for me. I think that my favorite post is My Response: , I like to talk about things that may be taboo.

I am Hilman, author of creating a world. I blog because I want to create a world. While selfishly deciding the course of that world, I remain open to suggestion from readers, visitors and lurkers alike. the memorable one? the first blog entry, of course! --Introduction ?

The best post that i really love is Kisah sang gajah dan anak ikan emas because it is really tickle me a lot and it is the post that make me meet so much people in this blog world. hehe..

“Why do maike blog?” The very first slide crossing my mind consists of these three points - Learned, Shared, and Gained. They form a cycle which I wanted to go through while I blog about my life here. I shared whatever I learned, experienced and gained, by the power of a little space. Besides, I have the opportunity to meet friends from every corner around, we colored each others life, and together we make the world flatter and flatter. Blogging enriched and made my life extraordinary.

Ohaiyo! My name is Jean Chia from A Great Pleasure. I started blogging around end March 2007.

It was truly a great pleasure to know them and I am honored to award them in Award For You, My Great Friend. One of my favourite post is my first post which was about my niece : First “Ah Yi”. Now, blogging seems to me as a way to express myself freely. It has been a joyful experience and I’ll blog for as long as I can.

I am Karen, writer of the blog, Journey with WaterLearner. My blog documents my humble journey of Awareness and Practical Spirituality.

Some of my favourite posts that might guide you to reflection are: The Pearl Within, Learn to Sink, Spiritual Facial & Uneasy Goodness.

Hey there, this is SaeWei from As Bratty As Me. I blogged for a few reasons too. One is of course to share my views and opinions to all the readers out there. Second, to earn extra bucks. And of course to know more people. And since Blogging is like the "IN" thing now, I have no choice but to step my foot into this wonderful world of blogsophere. :)

Hi...I'm Twilight, my blog is called Learning Curve on the Ecliptic I write about astrology. I know that some people look on astrology as silly supersition, I have reason to believe otherwise. Two main reasons for blogging: I enjoy writing, and while continuing to learn, I like sharing my discoveries on how astrology relates to art, music, politics, movies, TV, current affairs, and my own experiences. I often compile a related video with music to include in my blog. My representative blog entry: the American political scene is at the front of my mind just now, so a link to this recent post Holding on for a Hero, my video compilation included.


My name is Rebecca and I am the author of Rebecca’s Green Blog. I blog because I care about the environment.

My most representative post is Welcome to Rebecca's Green Blog.

Hello World! My name is Bobby Revell. I blog to spread love and friendship. I love all people! My goal is to destroy prejudice and help people realize that it is love, not money that determines success. I hope to work with all of you so that EVERYONE ON EARTH WILL BE FRIENDS! This will make war a distant memory. I believe in my purpose. I blog for my readers, not for myself. I will never again ask anyone for a link because a link should be a gift. You shouldn’t have to ask for a gift! I am like a zen artist who works on a piece but doesn’t sign his name on it. It is unimportant what I do. It is important for what I do to have an impact on bringing love to all of you. My blog is about blogging ethics. I see it as the spiritual blogging ethics of love! One post that defines who I am is Promoting Racial Unity. I love you all!

My name is Eric, better known as Speedcat Hollydale I started blogging because I had no computer experience, and wanted to find out what all the hype was about. That was a little over a year ago. My post is World Record Breaking Award Ceremony Held at the S... . This post brought the most visitors, comments, and was the most fun. I am an overlinker :-)


My name is Rebecca and I am the author of Rebecca’s Healthy Food Blog. I blog because I care about eating healthy and spreading the word about some of the issues involving food today. My most representative post is The Wonders of Nature.


Hiya! I'm Shannon and I blog at Chicken's Life, I started because I am too lazy to write in a diary and most of the time I cannot read my own writing...so it seems a bit pointless. I'm not sure I have a specific post that I like the most, I blog about my life what ails and what makes me laugh. Here is a post that makes me happy, we went to Pismo Beach, Ca.

Christy aka Angelstar blogs for a very simple reason; I LOVE writing and blogging is just one creative way of not just writing but also putting my ideas into colors and illustrations to tell others what I think or find funny. I LOVE reading and writing so much that it's just part of me and I have so many blogs..my primary blog, Food blog, Travel, Movies, Mysteries, Women's Zine and I just love them all! I just LOVE doing this :D (it just opens a window to the soul)


I am LeeChien, writer of It's All About LIFE & SHARING. Clear enough with my blog's title, it's all about my LIFE and the stuffs i would like to SHARE.


Her name's Bobo, the little Bimbo from a small sunny island called Singapore. She thinks that the world may not know enough about her little happy homeland... and some may have the wrong impression of Singapore. With all the "fines" and rules in the country, she hopes to have a chance to show people that Singapore is a really FINE country with posts like Attractions in Singapore and Singlish. Her "Bimbo with a Twist" is also a complaint dumping ground when her days really suck and she just doesn't want to terrorise any individual with her endless ranting... she needs to terrorise a nice corner of this blogosphere.

Hello, world! My name is Jodi, also known as sm00bs in the virtual world. I am a thirtysomething mother to a darling little girl and wife to a wonderful man. The little corner of the innerwebs that I call home is A Room with a sm00. I use it mostly for a way to keep my family and friends updated on the goings on of my mostly boring life since I live so far away from everyone. Now that my daughter is on the scene, I post a fair number of pictures and videos along with lots of stories about her. Other than that, I write about what I love, which includes (but not limited to) cooking, baking, knitting, gardening, travel, computers, movies, and music. Of course, Sophie will always be my favorite topic, and my favorite (and possibly most informative) post is about her signing, complete with a video of her signing with flashcards (her idea, I promise). Stop by and say a quick hi. I'd love to meet new people!

I blog to solve the too-much-information problem for people using the internet to get a definitive answer to the question, "How do I get on that; game show, reality show, relationship show, interior design show, video clip show, talent competition, lifestyle program, talk show, judge show, real estate program, cooking show, fashion show, make-over show, how-to show..."
My definitive post is the one that greets you at the link above.

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Courage-

Humor-

Humor


Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination


Written for Ann
~Dawn Drover~

Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
