Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I am still new to some aspects of blogging and must have missed this last year but in case you haven't heard..it's time for the 2011 Ultimate Blog Party! Janice and Susan, from 5 Minutes for Mom,are the hosts of the fabulous event where you can find new blogs,get new followers and win some great prizes too!!

What a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers and followers better.As most of you know,I am a mom to 3 of the craziest kids in the world.Gage is 9,Aiden is 7 and Princess Reagan is 4.I enjoy reading,scrap booking,target shooting,baking and of course..blogging.There is always something going on in our world and here are some of my recent photos of daily life.

I actually started blogging because I ran into a blog giveaway.I had never heard of blog giveaways or "mommy" blogs before and I started reading some of the ones I came across.I followed the buttons from blog to blog including 5 Minutes for Mom.After a few months of reading posts, entering giveaways and following these ladies lives,I decided to give it a try myself. I love to win like everyone else,but I also love the feeling of connection with other people I don't "know" in my daily world.Over the past 2 years,since I started being involved with blogs,I have laughed and cried with the blog owners.I have watched their children grow along with my own.I have read of their success and failure,happiness and misery and continue to do so.I may not have ever spoken to these women,they may not know I exist in the masses of followers and commenter's on their sites,but what matters to me is the hope that some of you,like myself,care what the others have to say.

I will admit I don't get to blog as often as I would like.I work full time outside the house,I have 3 kids full time and 2 step kids part time as well as my niece and nephew whenever I get a chance,but I try to keep up and am working on my schedule to make more time to participate in certain events..like this one!!

Go join in the fun..meet some new people,find some new followers,read a new blog ..or a hundred and just enjoy a little positive in a world full of negatives.
