the women. the strength. the confidence

I had no idea what "blogland" looked like.  Or what "bloggers" really did there. I was so curious, for so long. I have been a reader of Rosie O'donnell's blog for at least 6 years. I was humbled by how open  she was in her blogs. She told it how it was, rough around the edges. She also featured alot of "crafty"stuff, which I am a huge sucker for. For 5 years it was just me & Ro doing the bloggy dance together. Then enter Ms Kelle Hampton...I do credit her for sucking me into this blog world. Her blogs, her pictures, every. single. one. of her posts inspire me. If you have not read her blog, u should...u really really should!! One night while reading her blog I noticed a next blog  button at the top of her page. I hit it. I was hooked....Since then i have found so many more blogs that just blow me away...
Ooo, this chick knocks my socks. The very first blog post of her's I read, she was rushing home from somewhere & wanting to yank her tampon out. The whole post was pretty much her telling off this tampon. Lol. I couldn't find the follow button fast enough. I am not giving her post justice, so i hope you read it for yourself, because it is awesome!  Plus, this girl makes some pretty amazing baking, then tormants us with this amazing pictures of it. Yum, seriously.
I am kinda funny when it come to following blogs. I like so, so, so many blogs, but there is nothing i love more then some bloggy love at first sight. This is how I felt when I stumbled onto Donna's blog, and if it doesn't happen to you then i will be completely surprised. this woman rocks it. she is open, honest, says it how it is. i look forward to her posts everyday. So thank u Donna for making my cup of joe that  much more enjoyable!

If you haven't had a chance to pop over there you should. This chickee is preggers with baby boy #3 & let me tell ya, her posts are awesome! Always funny & lil bit sarcastic,which I would say is the perfect combo. She was one of the first commenter's on my blog & every time she comments she has a way of making my day!!

 This site saved this blogger. I was just about to give up until I joined FTLOB. It's an amazing site & perfect for any new bloggers like me:) 

I could keep going & going. Everyday I amazed at the community that I have found here in blogland. The woman, the strength, the confidence. I have never been so inspired to live my life to fullest. My blog has given me a space to write the conversations that i have in my head, and to read others conversations. I don't feel alone anymore. Or crazy. So, for that, thank u blogland. I owe ya. Huge.
