Following Followers

I am truly delighted to have followers. The fact that they are not all family makes it even better! I thought I would use this post to recognize my followers! Plus this forces me to really see who you are! I also know I don't comment enough, so this is my bulk version.

Emily The Creative is fun. She and I share April babies. Her doesn't sleep either! She also has a couple other munchkins at home that are always making her crazy and providing lots of material.

Khadra is my first blog friend. She has multiple children at home and is known to be a little grumpy! I know she feels defined by her children, but I think its a front. I like to think of Khadra as an onion, there is definitely a lot to her. She also makes gorgeous jewelry.

Following Him is sweet and honest. She is absolute in her morals and belief. I wish more young girls had her convictions.

Heidi makes me laugh on a regular basis. I would think her fake, but no one can make this stuff up. Be sure to read the loving letter to her son!

Jenners has multiple blogs, and I discovered her on Find Your Next Book Here. She's not just another SAHM, she is well informed and an excellent writer.

Ok - so I just this very second looked at Mistika's blog. As a Colombian married to an Egyptian she is culturally rich and I love how her blog is written to her two adorable girls. I will be checking in on her regularly.

Pam lives in the prettiest country I have ever seen. I love when she posts stories and pictures about life in a small town in Canada.

Corrine is a voracious blogger with a talent for photography. Another mom with MSC (Many small children - ok here is the truth - I would love to have MSC. I love reading blogs by moms with many children at home. I wish I had Irish twins! I regret I didn't decide this until I was 37...more on this later, this is suppose to be about my fans supporters. ) Her blog is completely random and entertaining. I have a hard time understanding why she doesn't like to shop and I admire her convictions.

Live and Learn the Hard Way is an inspiration. I think anyone would enjoy following her new romance and supporting her sobriety.

Hurricane Heather is genius. No, really she is one. Sooo funny! Read her, read her daily!

Elisabeth another random writer that shares the interesting thoughts and happenings around her. A true Daddy's girl and a mother of three, she shares her life openly.

One Anxious Mommy is my newest addition. We share red headed babies and a tendency to be overly anxious.

Wow - I am glad I did this! The blogging world truly allows new connections. Do you know or follow your followers? Feel free to share.

Corrine said...

wow i m impressed.

it is amazing how just the simple act of blogging can bring so many people together.

Jenners said...

Wow! How nice that you did this! So kind. But my husband totally started laughing when I said you thought I was "well informed."

I don't know if I know all of my followers ... but I always try to visit anyone who comments on my blog. And if people keep commenting and I keep visiting them, we begin to form a bloggy friendship. I've been amazed how many people I've gotten to know through blogging. It was a total unexpected benefit! My only real problem with blogging is that there are too many good blogs out there and not enough hours in the day!

What a wonderful tribute to your followers, Junita. I have to tell you that your posts always make me smile...either from the thoughtful or the hilarious person you are.

Before I go, I wanted to let you know that I left a bit of link love on our blog for you today. If you are interested, check it out. You'll just have to figure out which link is yours, which hopefully should not be too hard!
