Good Housekeeping Likes My Blog!

I'm am so excited! Good Housekeeping author, Jen Singer, submitted a review of my blog in her post titled, "Good and Crazy Blogs Worth Bookmarking." Thank you, Jen! I am truly honored!

Jen writes:

. . . Mom's Fortress of Solitude ( Angela McCoy is the mother of four special needs children who just wants us all to pay, or rather to "blog it forward." She asks, "Does it make your heart smile to know you have affected someone's life in a positive way?" If so, her blog is for you. A self-proclaimed "blogaholic," Angela follows some 1,500 blogs and yet, has time to write her own, which is a combination of writing lessons coupled with life lessons about parenting in difficult situations. In "My First True Love," she posts a love letter of sorts to her teenage son about the moment she first saw him: "All that mattered in life was from this moment on." She's a great storyteller, too. In "Swim Away. Swim Away," she writes about the night her son, having just watched Finding Nemo, decided to help his fish escape to the ocean through the toilet. Because, as you know, "All dwains lead to the osean." . . .
My blog is one of three mentioned in her write-up. I have visited the other two blogs she has spotlighted, and they are phenomenal! I would definitely recommend visiting these talent-filled blogs, as well.

Jen included Mom Writer's Literary Magazine Blog, an anthological blog filled with helpful advice from a myriad of contributing mothers.

Good N Crazy by Carissa Rogers is an interactive adventure through motherhood, Carissa style. Carissa offers her readers quality reviews and humorous adventures in parenting.

Carissa states:

I love the bloggy world where I share and connect with thousands of people about the happy, the sad, the rotten, and the silly! I write about my family, my story, my way.

Once again, Jen, thank you so much for the mention. I am honored to be among the rankings of these admirable moms.

Please go visit these blogs. I am certain you will enjoy your stay.
