My Thoughts on Top Mom Blogger and a Giveaway

As a member of the MomDot Forum where I have gained some amazing friendships and consider it my home away from home, I was game on when Trisha and Lynsey were starting up Top Mom Blogger.  I know these ladies have what it takes, they have the knowledge and the power to really help bloggers succeed.  Yes, yes, you can go read any other blogging support post, website and such, believe me I share tips as well, but there is something different about Top Mom Blogger and that something different really makes it worth a paid membership site.

A Relaxing but Fun Family Walk

Last weekend my family and I decided to venture out and take in the scenes of an old railroad track turned four wheeling trail. There is this old train bridge, not sure if it is really a train bridge per say but that’s what my three year old son calls it, and he’s been begging to check it out. The view was gorgeous, and although I am extremely afraid of heights we did capture some great family photos.  One thing that our family enjoys doing together is taking walks, but we don’t like taking walks down the main road, rather […]

Review & Giveaway: The Blackberry Diaries

This review and giveaway is sponsored by Research in Motion. If you have not heard of The BlackBerry Diaries: Adventures in Modern Motherhood you are about to hear about this fantastic book, or what the author, Kathy Buckworth, refers to as a “plog”.  The book is written in blog format but as she states in her introduction this is on paper and so she refers to the book as a “plog” (blog on paper). I am about halfway through this book, very fast and easy read, and since she is going on tour starting August 18th I really wanted to […]
