This next installment of The Wild Mind’s picks for the Sunshine Award, will, like the last be completely astounded that they received an award from me. They will likely not even know I’ve been reading them and, well, an award from me to them really isn’t going to change their blogging world all that much. However, since the whole point of this venture is for me to name others that have shone a little light in my world, I’m picking them whether they like it or not. Hopefully, they like it instead of not.
The first up tonight is Amy Whitley, over at The Never True Tales. Incredibly fun to read her anecdotes of life with young children is really enjoyable to me. Plus, I really like her writing style and her blog layout and, yeah, the title doesn’t hurt her blog any either. I have The Never True Tales on my iPhone and I read her whenever I can. Good times. Go see for yourself!
My next pick for the evening is another fun mommy blogger who’s been on my blog roll for quite some time. In fact, she was one that I crossed paths with early on in my blogging efforts. She’s Mir at Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda. She’s funny, creative, and she’s traveled the divorce route like I have. She’s now remarried and writing about her adventures in her own heartwarming way. She makes me laugh and inspires me to keep going though I really can’t hold a candle to her (and many of these other bloggers I esteem) in the writing department. Well…at least not yet. Just wait. I will grow up into my writing self someday.
New to my blog roll is a single gal who certainly has it going on. Jolene at To Be Determined shares her single journey in a candid, honest, forthright manner. It is like reading her personal journal and that’s pretty fun. I find that her experiences in the dating world are similar to my own though we have some very different demographics between us. I hope you’ll consider paying her a visit or two or three.
My last notable of the evening is Mrs.. Squirrel over at Hollow Squirrel. She is really one of the very first mom bloggers I stumbled upon in my web wanderings. She makes me laugh till I hurl every time I read her. She isn’t afraid to call it like it is. I love her blog. I hope you will too.
That’s seven of the ten Sunshine Awards announced. Stay tuned for the final three sometime later this week.
P.S. Really, I’m not intentionally dragging this out, but it’s killing me to do this and get an entire household ready for a week, not that I mind. I actually love having the privilege, but I have to budget my time. I’ve got to do some lesson planning somewhere in here too. Oh and dinner, yeah. Somehow I’ve also got to figure out what I can quickly destroy for dinner tonight.
