Me and My Blog

you & your blog at finding joy

I’ve been blogging for nearly 11 years, and I do it because it gives me a chance to express myself, to connect with others, to make new friends, and to be creative.

Here is a picture of me with my blog, a challenge inspired by Rachel at Finding Joy.

Me and My Blog


I’m Featured!

I found Courtney’s blog over the weekend and have really enjoyed learning about her family and seeing all her beautiful photos. She’s posts a lot of pretty pictures of her gorgeous little daughter. You should visit just for that. Plus, her husband’s family lives in Columbus, Ohio, where I lived for 13 years before moving to Chicago. Go Buckeyes!

Courtney is lovely enough to have me as one of her featured blogs! Go visit her and say “hi!”

I Won An Award!

I haven’t won a blog or Web site award in years. But the awesome Priyanka at Girl on the Move was nice enough to award me the following, which I guess means I’m versatile. Or something. :)

YAY!!! So, now I get to pass it on! :)

1. Thank and link back to the person that gave it to you!
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Send the Versatile Blogger Award on to 15 other bloggers and let them know you have awarded them!

OK, so 7 Things About Me:

1. I LOVE to read, and I read mostly YA novels.
2. Guilty pleasures of mine? Stupid Zynga games like Cafe World and FarmVille. I know, right?
3. I’m a night owl.
4. I don’t like the sound of footsteps, especially high heels.
5. I imagine what it’d be like to be a Time Lord.
6. I’m a nerd (see #5).
7. If I had more room in my apartment, I’d have an aquarium, a snake, some bearded dragons, and possibly a guinea pig, as well as my cats.

So, now I get to tell 15 bloggers that I love reading their blogs. I bet some of them have received this award before. Well, they’re getting it again, so there! :D

Here are my 15. Some of these are blogs I’ve just discovered, and some of them are friends I’ve known for a long time. All of them have the effect of making me drop everything when I see a new entry from them in my RSS feeder. Please visit them and tell them I sent you. :)

1. Krista @ Army Wife Style
2. Lotus @ Inside My Velvet Rope
3. Dara @ Not In Jersy
4. Liza @ Liza Loves
5. Theresa @ I, Mami
6. Mama G @ Growing Up Geeky
7. Melissa @ Filling Our Bucket
8. Sweaty @ Do Sweat the Small Stuff
9. Jen @ My Boss is Teething
10. Nikki @ Everything Under the Moon
11. Mandi @ Life in Beta
12. InC0h3rent @ My Wall of Wonder
13. Sun @
14. Rho @ Rho Rho’s Flow
15. C_Chan808 @ Say Cheese!

YAY again! :)


Starting All Over

Something wonky happened with my other Word Press installation.  The files are all there, but I can’t get into my dashboard to add new posts, update, or even see what the heck is wrong.  So bear with me as I try to redo my site. It’s kind of a PITA, but I’d been meaning to move everything to the index page for a while. So, here goes!

ETA: All posts have been imported from Live Journal, including some that probably didn’t need to come over here! I THINK I might be back in business. :)
