SITSta-hood!


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 Norway

Julie @ 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.

What an adorable blog! And I'm so glad to meet someone else who started out blogging in super-secret mode :) I thought I was the only one who warmed up to the idea of sharing my blog very, very slowly. Now, like you, I mention it to everyone who crosses my path!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, glad to "meet" you!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm loving that you called me a little sitsa!

I was like you when it came to blogging. I hid it from everyone and now I post about it on my facebook, etc. It's a big part of my life now!!

TattooedMinivanMom said...

I'm glad you came out of hiding...that's what she said!!

Like that huh?

Johanna said...

so if you join anything with a~thon in its name it might definately have become an addiction...And the post about you being able to do it behind the desk is priceless...In your pajamas at 500am more like it. Enjoy your SITSta~hood and let me know when you do a nap~a~thon ~ I will definately be there for that one.
