No-Go BlogHer Blog Hop


Are you staying home during  the BlogHer 2010 conference?  Well, there is no reason to be down about it.  Maya from Musings of a Marfan Mom and Stefany from ToBeThode are here to host the No-Go BlogHer party.  This is guaranteed to be a great time and you can participate right from your sofa (or kitchen, office, heck even your bathroom if you want).    Here is what you need to do to participate:
  1. Answer the questions below on your blog and then link up that post in the linky.  You will find the linky at ToBeThode or Musings of a Marfan Mom but you only need to link up once as it will be identical information.
  2. Grab the button for the No-Go BlogHer party and place it on your sidebar during the duration of the party.
Here are the questions  to answer:
  1. When did you start blogging?
    I started blogging back in 2001 but I didn't call it blogging back then. I had a livejournal that I used for years. I've been on wordpress, livejournal and a few other sites in the past. I started this blog back in 2008, but then renamed it and started over again back in January of 2010
  2. Why did you start blogging?
    Back in the day it was just to talk about whatever was on my mind. Complain about boyfriends, keep in touch with friends back home while I was away at college. This blog was originally to keep friends and family up to date on life after the wedding but it has since become my place to document my self discovery journey.
  3. What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
    I am going to spend a lot of time with my dog and my hubby and my kitties and maybe go bowling and fishing. Very exciting stuff.
  4. Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite.  (share the link in YOUR post so we all can see)
    Family is very important to me. I wrote this post back when no one was really reading it... maybe now is a good time to bring it back. It's about my daddy. Father's Day 2009


  1. I love this idea and I have been dealing with some writer's block too! This is great.

  2. How sweet. My husband would have been one that you were talking about. My father in law passed away a little over two years ago from lung cancer. He was only a month shy from seeing his granddaughter being born. It still brings tears to my eyes because I grew really close to him. And it made me double think about my own dad who is suffering right now with a newly discovered problem doctors can't quite confirm.

    But I will say, that it's okay. You SHOULD share your wonderful father to the world. We share our children with the world on our blogs, even though there are angel babies. We share our husbands on our blogs, even though there are widows. In this world, everyone lost someone but we need to hold onto the ones we do have.

    I am glad you showed a picture of him at the end of that post, and I remember that song too. What a sweet, sweet song.

  3. How sweet! I lost my father over 4 years ago to cancer, although he and I were not terribly close.
    I love that song! I can't imagine what will happen when our baby girl get's married (she 17 now!)

  4. I'm glad you've thrown yourself into blogging :)

  5. Wow, you're the first bloggers I know who's been blogging since 2001. Good for you. What better weekend fun is there then spending time with your husband and kitties. Have fun!
