Well, I've never participated in a Blog-a-thon before. Honestly, I don't believe I've ever participated in anything that ends with "a-thon". That requires physical exertion and athletic prowess, for which I am not known. But they said there'd be prizes...and no strenuous activity, so I'm in!
I'm relatively new to the blogging scene. When I first began, I wouldn't even tell my friends. I had my blog so hidden that even my husband couldn't find me. It was basically just an online diary with a cute background. However, in the past few months, I've come out of hiding little by little. First I mentioned it casually to a few people. Then I linked to my blog from my facebook page. Next I started sending messages to friends on their facebook "Wall" when I would mention them in a post. Now I all but introduce myself with, "Hello, my name is Denyse @ quirkybee.blogspot.com."
SITS has been instrumental in my transformation because I have met some of the.nicest.people. Seriously. I love visiting the featured blogs each day and I've learned that blogging is oh-so-much more fun when you make comments than when you just "lurk and leave". So thanks Heather and Tiffany for making my blog "saucy"! I appreciate all you girls do!
Here are 5 Great Blogs that make my day when the blog reader alerts me that they've posted something new:
Jennifer @ Dust Bunny Hostage
Tressa @ An American in NorwayJulie @ Journey to Family
Evi @ Keeping Up With Yesterday
All of these ladies are so fun and inspirational, too! They bless.my.socks.off!
*P.S. I just realized that if you're here via the SITS Mr. Linky, you can't see the rest of my blog...so, if you're interested, click here.
