Remember back in the bloggy day when bloggers would hand out awards to their favorite bloggers? I remember the first one I got: The Thinking Blogger Award (Who in the blue blazes gave me THAT?). Anywhoo…I haven’t seen those around the blogsphere lately (maybe it’s just because no one wants to give me one?! yikes!) until I got a fun email from the fabu ladies at The Motherhood.com.
As a part of P&G’s new Thank You Mom project (and contest!), ten mom bloggers (namely, moi) will be using the next five days to publicly thank five mom bloggers! That’s 50 bloggers who will get a little post about how amazing they are! I’m so excited to read these posts and shower a little love.
Today I’m going to give a huge thank-you-shout-out-i-love-you post to Jo-Lynne at Musings of a Housewife. If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know I love Jo-Lynne. I met her early on in my bloggy life and wish I could remember how…a linky at 5minutesformom, perhaps? Anyway, she’s the only blog I’ve been reading faithfully after all this time. (I know, Jo-Lynne, I don’t comment, but I do read, I promise!)
(my team jo-lynne shirt from blissdom. and my crazy smoky eyes. oh yeah, and jo-lynne!)
Jo-Lynne has this amazing ability to make her readers feel like part of the in-crowd. Her readers always leave long personal comments and she responds happily to each of them.
She feels like the friend you’re picking up with after a long absence. A friend you really missed and are so excited to connect with again!
She’s liberal with linky love, bloggy knowledge and emails. I’ve sent many an email off to Jo-Lynne asking her about blog events, html and silly post questions. In fact, I looked up her first comment on my blog and she wrote, “Hang in there with the blogging. I still feel like that, and I’ve been blogging for a year. You’ll find your niche, though.” (That’s so her!)
Jo-Lynne is the mom who’s just a little ahead of you that can dispense advice about parenting and potty training. She writes about her family with confidence and humility.
She’s the cool friend that’s up on trends and gossip (in a good way gossip!) and events.
Thank you, Jo-Lynne for contributing to my blog, my parenting, my well-being and my circle of friends. Thank you for sharing your life with me through your blog!
