Our featured blogger this week is a new to me blogger too so I asked her to write something up to let us know who she is.
Hello! I’m Hopes and I am the author of Staying Afloat! I am honored to be “Sharing My Awesome” with you today. So sit down, relax, can I pour you a glass of something? Wine (my beverage of choice) perhaps? Let’s get to know each other a little bit.
I am a stay at home mom to three boys. No, that wasn’t a typo. I seriously have three boys (you wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve been asked the question, Really? Three boys?). My family and I live in the Seattle, Washington area. Yep, the place where it rains ALL THE TIME! But we have the greenest trees around, and our summers are out of this world, and we can’t forget Starbucks (aka my second home). We live where Starbucks began, and quite frankly…that just rocks! I enjoy a glass of wine or two in the evenings after my husband and I have put our boys down for the night and we are catching up with each other. I firmly believe that wine goes with anything!
I started blogging only three short months ago. I started blogging due to peer pressure. That’s right; I crumbled under the pressure of the “You should really write this down, you’ll want to remember it later” comments. And the “you say some funny things, you should really start a blog” comments. So I did. I started blogging about my daily adventures with three boys. How I’m constantly riding the waves and surviving in a sea of testosterone. I write to be a sounding board for other moms, to put out there that you aren’t crazy and neither am I.
So no matter how I started my blog, I’m so glad I did. I’ve met some amazing people, found amazing support, and I’ve found my voice again which I believe shows in my favorite post to date A Number I Am Not.
So come visit me! Spend some time, and I’ll pour the wine! I love to chat! I’m also on twitter @HStayingAfloat.
YAY! Doesn’t she just sound so nice! Be sure to go check out her blog. I read her post from last week and it was fantastic. Now it is your turn to link up and share your awesome from a chance to be featured next week. BUT your post really doesn’t have to be awesome (in your opinion). It can be any post that you wrote this week. JUST LINK UP! Here are the rules for linking up:
- Link up a favorite post you wrote this week.
- On the post you feature link back to my blog. Something like, “I’m sharing my awesome with Momma Made It Look Easy and you can too.” It can be in the tiniest print at the very bottom of your post. Or you can grab my “Share Your Awesome” button from the sidebar and use that.
- Link directly to your blog post and not your home page or a landing page. If you don’t know how to find the permalink just let me know and I’ll help you.
Next week I will randomly pick one participant (that hasn’t previously been featured) to feature on my blog. Please follow all of the rules. I will delete you if you don’t. And while it isn’t a requirement, it would be really great if you would check out some of the other blogs that link up, and also, comments are always great. The posts so far have been awesome and I’m sure they will be this week too.
Please share that you are linking up on Facebook and Twitter so that we will have plenty of people join in. I will try to share all of your posts.
