Heal Pain Naturally Celebrates 100th Post and 1 Year Anniversary!

Thank you to my readers, fellow bloggers and family for making this blog successful over the last year. I am even more in love with blogging than I was a year ago. I wanted to share with you why I started blogging, the most popular posts of the past year, fellow bloggers that have inspired me, my achievements, what direction this blog is headed in and also some personal thank you’s. Sit back, relax and enjoy and bookmark so you can come back later and read some of the incredible blogs and posts referenced — this is gonna be a longg one! ;-)Here’s a short video thank you to start you off:

THE BEGINNING

After I had healed myself and wrote my ebook on the healing process I needed a way to market it to get my story out there. I went onto The Warrior Forum and found out about this FREE internet Marketing Course Called The Thirty Day Challenge. I loved it and fell in love with blogging in the process. I even made a video to thank Dan Raine and Ed Dale for offering and teaching The Thirty Day Challenge. I am doing it this year as well (Aug every year). It is even MORE awesome and the tools they teach aren’t JUST cutting edge but almost anyone that spends some time on the internet could benefit from their vast knowledge. Thanks again guys!


Writing had always been a part of my life and connecting with others through it had been something I had never considered. I am loving meeting, learning from and helping people and blogging has turned out to be a lot more social that I had originally thought. I would like to share with you some of the most popular posts that I have written this past year:

Blogging/Bloggers

I started off Heal Pain Naturally and Non Violent Computer Game Recommendations for Children at about the same time. I enjoy writing for both blogs although I write for Heal Pain Naturally more frequently and feel this is where my deepest passion lies. I have met so many INCREDIBLE people in the world of blogging and yes, I will attempt to list the people I NEED to thank and that I believe will enrich your life as well. I tried to break them into categories but it came down to this — whether it be health, personal development, spirituality, parenting or business — these writers all help people to live their lives to their fullest potential. So I decided to list them alphabetically (by first name) and write a little blurb about each along with a post of theirs that I think you will enjoy.

Aaron Potts of Today is That Day and Personal Development Partners is the only fellow blogger I have written a birthday poem to. Aaron has offered a lot of support and praise to me this year and for that and for PDP I am forever grateful. A great post of Aaron’s to check out is “You Have to Look with Better Eyes Than That“.

Akemi of Yes To Me and Akashic Record Reading is a very kind and genuine person. I had met through PDP and met again after hearing from Cath Lawson’s blog that she did Akashic Record Readings. The Akashic Reading she did for me was brilliant and has helped me tremendously. I recommend reading, “Dodging the Many Forms of Psychological Manipulation“.

Albert the Urban Monk‘s blog helped me tremendously from the beginning. Albert is very wise and incorporates his knowledge of spirituality into his inspiring posts. I recommend checking out his “Start Here page” which has many of his most popular articles listed so you can choose which area you want to explore.

Alex Blackwell of The Next 45 Years is inspiring in that he writes personal development posts incorporating his life. Alex is currently guest posting as he changes his place of writing. Alex has been supportive of my blog over the last year and I am very grateful. Check out his latest — a guest post on Pick the Brain, “3 Strategies for Radically Better Decision Making“. or click on his name to see many of his Ezine Articles.

Alex Shalman at Alex Shalman (Practical Personal Development) I got to meet in person at the Steve & Erin Pavlina meet-up last fall in NYC. I had only been blogging a few months and had talked to Alex through email several times. Alex is living proof that what he writes about works and he is very generous with his knowledge. He never ceases to amaze me with all his accomplishments. I really enjoyed Alex’s Happiness Project and “Three Personal Development Principals that Changed My Life“.

Ange Recchia of Ange’s Biz and I have been talking for over a year now. We have The Thirty Day Challenge, mommyhood, love of nature and a lot of other things in common. She is also a writer on Go! Smell The Flowers. I recommend giving Ange a shout out and also reading her article “Speak Now Before it is Too Late“.

Bruno LoGreco at Morning Java with Bruno Lo Greco is a life coach and a family life coach with a huge heart. He has given me lots of encouragement over the last few months and I am very grateful we met. “Self Acceptance” is a wonderful post with action steps.

Camille Strate at Joyz a Choice simply radiates love. Love for all with a special connection to animals. Camille and I have talked quite a bit on the phone and it has been a joy getting to know her. You can check out many of her posts on her Self Growth profile. One of my favorites is, “Why Can’t I Meditate?

Cath Lawson‘s tagline for her blog is “Bold Advice for Business Success” but her blog is MUCH more than that. Cath is witty, smart and shares her incite on business and life in general with tons of loyal readers. “6 Things You Can Learn from the Man with No Shoes” is a good place to begin.

Caroline Middlebrook of the Caroline Middlebrook blog and Stumble Rush course has now also launched “Life Should Feel Good“. Caroline is a blogging machine and is very knowledgeable about a lot more than just blogging. I have enjoyed emailing with Caroline (yep, there HAVE been some longgg ones) and I highly recommend her Stumble Rush course if you want to learn about Stumble Upon. I look forward to watching her “Life Should Feel Good” blog grow. Check it out and read “You Don’t Need to Experience Extreme Suffering to Be Deeply Unhappy“.

Darcy at Spiritual Blog Reviews does in depth reviews of spiritual sites. She is very sweet and kindly reviewed Heal Pain Naturally in December 2007. There are so many sites to discover through Darcy’s blog. She recently reviewed 2 of my other favorites mentioned below on my list “Shift Your Spirits” and “Holistic Personal Development“. Thanks Darcy for your in depth reviews and pointing me to new sites to explore!

Debra Oakland at Living in Courage IS COURAGE. She has withstood many tragedies and has come out beaming light and love. You will find lots of inspiration at Debra’s blog including “Gift Yourself with Courage“.

Dr. KC is the Doc in the Biz and a psychotherapist and is also at the GLC Zone (Grow Learn Change) which is a social network for health blogs. Dr. KC has a lot of experience in the field of psychology, has a great writing style and I recommend “Where is the Grass Greener?

Dr. Nicole at Kitchen Table Medicine is a naturopath. At Kitchen Table Medicine you will find lots of natural cures and things to keep you healthy as well as Dr. Nicole dispelling natural health rumors all with a sense of humor and intelligence. Check out her post “The Best Bedtime Snacks for Insomniacs“.

Edward Mills at Evolving Times and Edwards Mills has been one of my favorites for a while now. From his Energetics of Attraction course to his Vision Board Contest (which I was lucky enough to win) Edward Mills always inspires me. Please visit one of my favorites of his, “Top Ten Lessons I’ve Learned from My Daughter (So Far)“.

Ellie Walsh at Living the Law of Attraction I was able to meet since I am fortunate enough live in the same state as her. We had breakfast one morning (for about 2 1/2 hours) and I could have talked with her all day. She’s funny, smart and is very knowledgeable about the Law of Attraction. A wonderful post by her is “GIGO — Garbage In — Garbage Out“.

Erin Pavlina I met briefly at her meetup with Steve in NYC. Erin is a gifted psychic and has many interesting and useful posts on her site. I approached her when I needed advice on beginning to Lucid Dream and she was more than nice in helping me. Please check out her post, “The Golden Rule“.

Evelyn Lim at Attraction Mind Map I came across recently and have really been enjoying her blog. She is very sweet and writes in depth posts. Check out, “Face Up To Your Six Basic Fears“.

Gil Galanti of Conceptis Puzzles and also of Cult Case (a culture and art online magazine) and I share a love of puzzles and games. I wrote about Conceptis on both blogs and Conceptis made a puzzle featuring my children’s photograph. Gil is a super nice guy and I recommend checking out Cult Case, Conceptis and also “Downloading Soduko to your cell from Conceptis for FREE“.

Gregory Butler at Holistic Personal Development has helped me many times over the last year and I am very grateful for our friendship. I am a big fan of his writing and especially like his posts on consciousness. Please take a look at “Nothing Happens Until Something Moves“.

Hunter Nuttall I have only been reading a few months but LOVE his blog. He wrote a recent series on “Introverts versus Extraverts” that has gotten a lot of attention. He is also a student of Randy Pausch of “The Last Lecture” and wrote a post about “Randy and his wonderful Pauschisms“. Hunter is an awesome writer and another favorite of mine is, “Treading Water Only Delays Drowning“.

Isabella Mori at Change Therapy is a psychotherapist that I met early on in blogging. She has been blogging since December 2005 so you will find many useful posts on her blog. She has many posts on eating disorders and her blog is the location for the Eating Disorders Carnival. I recommend checking out her post, “The Definition of Addiction“.

Jennifer Abbott of Principals for Peace wrote a guest post on my blog recently on SFT Awareness. We share similar goals in spreading the power of healing naturally. She has many inspiring posts on her site. Here’s a very good post to check out about humility, “Do You Want to Be Great?

Karen Lynch of “Live the Power“is a writer with a beautiful voice that I can always relate to. She gave me such priceless advice before I shot my first video and is simply as real as you can get. I could recommend quite a few of Karen’s posts but here’s one to start, “Wanting What You’ve Got — A Gratitude Primer“.

Karin Hiebert was the other person who gave my priceless advice in making my first video. I’ve written about Karin who has endured so much in her life and come out stronger and wiser for it. Karin is a wonderful teacher and I recommend checking out the healing tools she recommends.

Kelly Rigby at She-Power is just hilarious and as real as they come. She adds much needed laughter to the Ummm… shall we say “challenges” of motherhood, marriage and life in general. I recently started reading She-Power and have been enjoying it thoroughly. Read “How to Be a Babe at Any Age“.

Leena at Conceptis Addict I met through Gil and Dave from Conceptis. She is a very kind woman with a smart head for puzzles and she and I have been in touch since the beginning of blogging for both of us. Leena posts lots of cool links to explore like this physics experiment.

Liara Covert of Dreambuilders I must first congratulate on getting married this week! Liara writes about spirituality, success and much more. Liara has reached out to me and answered my questions (I have many) effortlessly and with encouragement. Please look at “I Tried That Once and It Didn’t Work!“.

Linda Salazar of Awaken the Genie Within helped me SO much when I was “stuck” in a part of my healing emotionally. She is very intuitive and I am so grateful for the time she spent with me. Her book “Awaken the Genie Within” is wonderful as is her blog. Take a look at her post, “Motivated by Inspiration or Ambition?” to read her inspiring words.

Liz Strauss at Successful Blog has a wonderful community at her blog. She gives valuable advice, posts inspirational posts and encourages conversation with her readers. I love her writing style, intelligence and outlook on life and I recommend reading, “Social Networking in the World of Life“.

Lola Fayomi I stumbled across recently and know I will be spending a lot of time on her blog going through her posts. She has such a kind and authentic voice. I love her series on Clearing Self Limiting Beliefs which Begins with “Identifying Them“. I look forward to getting to know Lola better as I explore her blog. Lyman Reed at Creating a Better Life I first met through PDP.

Lyman is wonderful at sharing resources that will help you design a better life from the inside out. A great sample of Lyman’s voice is “I Am I Feel There is (Rotten Apples)“.

Michele Vandepas of “Divine Purpose Unleashed“(which she has with CK Reyes) stopped to help me with advice right before leaving for a blog convention. Her kindness and intuitive nature was evident on the phone and her words and advice continue to inspire me. Check out “Here’s a Quick Way to Discover What’s Important to You (And ME)“.

Neil Sattin is currently developing his children’s music site and also has a Natural Dog Training blog and a Personal Development Blog. Neil and I met at the Pavlina meetup and we stayed in touch ever since and he has become a friend. Neil is smart, funny and has very enjoyable children songs. I love his post, “Relationship Advice — How to Know When to Leave a Relationship“.

Patricia at Spiritual Journey of a Lightworker is an inspiration. She hesitates to call herself “an incest survivor” anymore because she is much more than that and her experience helped to form her into who she is today. Patricia shares her vast spiritual knowledge and journey and a good post to begin with is, “Healing and Letting Go of Repressed Emotions“.

Patrick Mathieu at The Power of Mortality I met when I won his book in a contest run by Peter (below). I wrote a review of Patrick’s book “What’s Your Expiry Date?” in March and highly recommend it. His story is hugely inspirational as is his blog. A good starting place is his post”Whose Business is That?

Peter at The Change Blog and Pick the Brain and I have been emailing the last few months. He is a pleasure to communicate with and very kind. He consistently provides interesting and helpful posts. A very useful one is “24 Daily Habits“.

Priscilla McIntire (formerly Priscilla Palmer) and I met through her Personal Development List and PDP and we became quick friends. Priscilla has given me lots of good advice over the last year and I wish her good luck as she has recently gotten married, is pregnant and resumed blogging. Please read her recent post “Provide Value to Others“.

Raymond Mannion at Oneonta TaeKwonDo and occasionally at home with me and the kids is without a doubt “the love of my life”. We have been through so much these last 11 years of marriage and it just makes us stronger. I recommend checking out his post “Top 7 Things to Consider Before Choosing a Martial Arts School“. Ray tests for his 3rd degree black belt in October and runs his own Tae Kwon Do School in town.

Rich German is the co creator along with his sister Robin Hoch of “Living The Law of Attraction: Real Stories of People Manifesting Health, Wealth and Happiness” that I was lucky enough to be a part of. Rich runs meditation classes that are brilliant and you can find out more about him on his site.

Robin Hoch not only co-produced the above book with her brother but also co-authored the wonderful ebook “How to Talk to Your Kids About The Law of Attraction” with Rich as well. Both books are well worth checking out.

Sierra Goodman of I can I can I can is also featured in the Living the Law of Attraction book. She is proof you can use the law of attraction to lose weight because she lost 170 lb. She also is living her dream job in Costa Rica. Check out her blog to learn more about her inspirational story and life.

Simon from The Secret of Life and I met at the beginning of my blogging. We corresponded a good bit and it’s been a pleasure to get to know him. I love his latest post, “Ten Words That Can Heal the World“.

Slade Roberson of Shift Your Spirits can find me looking forward to his weekly posts as they arrive in my inbox. When I read a post from Slade I am always taken by his intelligence and by how connected he is spiritually. Slade inspires me to become more spiritually connected and for that I am very grateful. I recently enjoyed his post, “What Are You Waiting For?“.

Steve Pavlina gave me very good advice when I got to meet him in NYC. I was bogged down in the few negative comments I was receiving and was not concentrating on all the positive ones. He put it in perspective really quickly for me and since then I have received very few negative comments. You could spend days reading all his posts and also discussing them in his forums. Here’s a good place to start, “Levels of Consciousness“.

Suzie Cheel of Abundance Highway and her art blog is an inspiration to me. She is brave and has posted a few goals online that would have had me shaking in my shoes and she succeeded. Go Suzie! Check out Suzie’s, “Monday Motivation: Being Aware“.

Tim Brownson of A Daring Adventure is probably so sick of me singing his praises but I could not leave him off of this list. His HILARIOUSLY real and INTELLIGENT outlook on life keeps me going back for more. His book “Don’t Ask No Stupid Questions – There are No Stupid Questions” is one to read and re-read. Ok Tim — promise you won’t be mentioned in my next post! 😉 Check out this brilliant one by Tim, “Are You Better Than Average?

Todd Goldfarb of We the Change is a fantastic blogger and also is involved in a very important movie that is being worked on “The Shift“. Todd has helped me over this last year and I am very grateful for meeting him. Look at this post from Todd, “How to Cope When Something Goes Terribly Wrong“.

Vicki Spina and I connected through Oprah’s site. She has given me good advice on coaching and I appreciate her friendship. She has been on Oprah and I recommend her book, “Success 2000 — Moving Into the Millennium with Purpose Power and Prosperity“… despite the title it is timeless.

All of the above people inspired me this year. They are all incredible writers and all have their own outlook on life and the topic they write about. It has been an honor to work alongside them and learn from their examples. I hope I have not forgotten too many people (yep, unbelievably ENTIRELY possible). There have been many other blogs I have read and enjoyed. It has been a long year full of constant inspiration and love. I am very grateful to be pursuing a passion that puts me in touch with emotionally and socially conscious people trying to inspire and others. Thank you, thank you thank you! :-)

Heal Pain Naturally Achievements

I wrote recently about the sites I am now affiliated with in Natural Healing Resources as well as the “Living the Law of Attraction” book. My vision board will also be featured in the upcoming book, “The Vision Board: Unlock the Secret to An Extraordinary Life” published by Harper Collins. My proudest achievements of the year were making my first 3 videos (and being able to sit through them without running from the room) and making it to this, my 100th post.

Direction of Heal Pain Naturally

If you are a regular reader you have heard me mention (a few times) my youngest starts full day kindergarten in one short month. That means me having more time than I have had in the last 10 years daily! I have been warned by mommy’s who have gone through similar not to bite off more than I can chew but c’mon that’s not me…. won’t the world magically transform so I have 40 hours/day in September? So yes, I have high hopes of all I want to accomplish in the next few months and I will list a few of the details here:

I will be moving Heal Pain Naturally along with my other blog and site to a site I am soon to develop: jennymannion.com. It will have a new design and this is all new to me so there might be some kinks as I learn word press and figure it all out. As I think about and develop my new site I welcome ideas and please let me know if you have any topics you would like me to write about. When I give the green light to go look at it I will welcome finding out about any bugs I have yet to address. I have been told by many this is not a seamless endeavor by any means… so I will ask for your patience and will also leave this site up until I am sure everything is running smoothly.

Once Heal Pain Naturally is up and running smoothly I will be looking to post a minimum 2 times a week there and 1-2 times a week on my computer blog.

I will be looking to coach more. I offer a free half-hour consultation. If you refer someone that signs up for coaching I will send you a free copy of my ebook. If you sign up (for a limited time) I will send you a copy of “Living the Law of Attraction”. You can contact me through email at jenny@jennymannion.com for more information on coaching and I will also have a page dedicated to it on my new site.

On the personal side I plan on starting dance and/or yoga classes again, seeing prototype #2 made of my invention and all that goes along with that (a helluva lot), purging the playroom (my kids are the only grandkids on both sides… need I say more?), planning Alex’s bday party (Sept. 27), attempting to work as the roof is replaced right over my head, a few trips to NYC and where Ray grew up and Oh so much more! I sense many posts ahead as my life takes this new direction. I hope you tune in for the incredible ride I am about to begin as a deal with time management issues, Christina adjusting to school, Alex entering a lot of homework zone and many more soon to be determined life changes. 😉

Thank you for all your support and FINALLY here are some personal thank yous for without these people I might have pressed that dreaded “delete blog” button long ago…..

Personal Thank Yous

Mom & Whitney — I have to give thanks to my mom and step-dad for all the times they watched the kids so I could “get a post done”. My mother’s generosity, positivity, patience and love know no ends — I want to be like you when I grow up mom! :-)
Ray — I mentioned him above but wanted to thank him for all his support for me sticking with blogging and for all the love he shows me. I miss him terribly now that he works away from us but appreciate him all the more when he is home. Our life together is just getting better and better and for THAT I am eternally grateful.
Alex & Christina — I want to thank my children Alex & Christina for making me laugh, their hugs and their endless love. Also for testing out the many computer games with me and helping me with reviews for my kid’s games blog. Alex is growing up so quickly (9 soon) and is helping me teach the Law of Attraction to his little sister, ‘Don’t say you can’t Christina otherwise it won’t happen — you’ve got to say you can…”. Christina (she’s 5) is already meditating and tells me she is waiting for levitation (which knowing Christina is entirely possible!). 😉 “But I wasn’t thinking of anything for that whole time mommy – why didn’t I levitate?”
Dad & Darcy — My dad and step-mom are very quick to compliment me on a good post and to tell me how proud they are. Those words mean a lot as does their generosity and love. Darcy’s art, my dad’s photographs and their love of the arts continue to inspire me.

3 women that have helped me be who I am today:
Alissa Christine — WHAT an artist and the fact that she introduced me to Ray (my husband) as well as The Secret (movie that changed everything for me) must mean she is my guardian angel! Alissa is beautiful inside and out and has been a close friend since almost the first day of college (for 20 years now). She is also an incredibly gifted artist and photographer and is the creator of I Love Miami 365.
Angela Brashear — Walks, cross country skiing, swimming, dancing, endless talks — whatever we do together she is a strength and has loved me and been a true friend to me for the last 2 1/2 years. I need to thank her for listening to post ideas, making me take a walk when I would have stayed with my face against my monitor and for her endless love, ear, support, hugs and her lovely family who have become family to us as well.
Julie Craumer — I’ve known Julie since I was 12 (oh the pictures I could show you) and she is still one of the most kind and loving people I have ever met. I need to thank Julie for being such a good friend to me for the last 27 years — boy have we been through a lot together (and she still loves me – I am VERY grateful!) It was an honor being Julie’s maid of honor last year and I am so happy she found such a wonderful guy to go through life with!

Okay – -tired? Ready for glasses after this one? Just one more thing….. Thank you — without my readers I would have given up a long time ago. Please keep your comments and emails coming — they inspire me more than I could say! Please take the time and bookmark this post so you can come back and visit the above writers — I promise you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again and I look forward to sharing my next year with you.

Eggscelence (Excellence) Award for Heal Pain Naturally

My friend Leena of Conceptis Addict was nice enough to give my blog an award of excellence. This award was started by Bradley of EgleNest. I started blogging to help others and I am happy to say I have received a bunch of emails from people telling me I have helped them already. What I didn’t know was how much kindness and help I would receive. I have so many bloggers I could pass this award on to. I read many blogs frequently and have so many favorites. I have chosen a few that always make me say, “wow” and that inspire me to keep writing no matter WHAT obstacles I face.

To be healthy and whole you need to heal from within and that is just what personal development teaches. Currently personal development blogs are 70% of the blogs I read. So that and the fact that I believe reading them regularly has contributed to me STAYING HEALTHY is why I have decided to give the award to these bloggers. I also love blogs on computers, internet marketing and ones that make me laugh. If you do continue to pass on this award — PLEASE include bloggers on other topics. If you visit these following blogs you will find easy and effective ways to change your life and heal from within. Everyone has something to learn and to work on in their life and these bloggers offer concrete, simple ways to do so that are heart-felt and intelligent. The rules of this award are just to pass it on by naming a few other bloggers (of any topic). But I wanted to tell you a bit about each and to include links to at least one of my favorite posts from each so you know where to start when looking at their voluminous work! : ) I haven’t made my way through all their articles on all their blogs but always know where to go when I want to read something intelligent, witty, from the heart and to learn.

Aaron Potts of Today is That Day is the originator of Personal Development Partners. (PDP) PDP is a wonderful place to meet other people and ask any question you can imagine and get 10 intelligent answers. You can also meet people to mastermind with, join and get free wonderful resources, if you are blogger post articles to discuss with others along with MANY other perks. I have to include Aaron’s post on Ho’oponopono as one of my favorites because he explains it so well and simply and gives you more resources to research it further.

Adam Kayce at Monk at Work — One of my favorite posts so far of Adam’s is “Are you One in a Million or One of a Million?”. Adam’s Book, “Silencing Overwhelm” is free when you subscribe to his blog and has REALLY helped me to prioritize tasks. Adam believes spirit infused business will change the world and with his wise words leading the way — I have no doubt it will.

Albert Foong at Urban Monk wrote a 6,000 word post, “What your ego is and how to stop it from obscuring your inner peace and unconditional love” that I found brilliant. He says that his blog is an additional voice to attaining more bliss, love and success… and how right he is. I highly recommend reading his e-book, “Weary Person’s Guide to Living in Joy and Changing Everything”. You feel his emotion and knowledge in every post and I can see how he has helped so many people — it doesn’t get much better than that.

Greg Butler at Holistic Personal Development — Greg and I have a special bond since we have both healed ourselves using holistic methods of several illnesses. Greg is very smart and knows so much about the body and how to heal it naturally. He understands how powerful the mind is and writes insightful posts on consciousness. I have to pick his posts “The Medical Death Sentence” and “An Integrative Medical Approach” because they are so close to my heart and state so clearly what I believe in but Greg offers lots more articles in many other areas of holistic personal development.

Edward Mills at Evolving Times — A lot of his posts make me go “wow — NOW I get it!” and are SO helpful to me. I am a Harry Potter fanatic so HAVE to mention his post, “16 Personal Development Lessons from Harry Potter” but I think a LOT of us could put his post “10 Tips for Staying Positive Around Negative People” to good use.

Lawrence Cheok of a Long Long Road writes about living a balanced life by managing your career, relationships and money and what a GREAT job he does of it. He just won an award from litemind for his post on “100 Resources to Improve Your Career, Relationships and Money” and you can see JUST how much work went into this post. A more personal one and one of my favorites is “7 Ways to Rekindle the Romance in Your Relationship“.

Neil Sattin at Getting to the Heart of Personal Development and I met briefly at the Steve Pavlina meetup in NYC and stayed in touch. We have become friends and he is doing a wonderful job of maintaining his 2 blogs (the other is on natural dog training) He is also a songwriter and I see him being a great future songwriter and performer for children. I love Neil’s post, “How to Apologize Effectively and Stop Being Right all the Time“. My favorite song so far is a lullaby he wrote for his son Dash.

Priscilla Palmer and I met through her Personal Development List, talked at Personal Development Partners and have been friends ever since. She is such a smart, driven and insightful person and I enjoy reading her blog to get her outlook on MANY personal development issues. A favorite post is “Overcome the Mental Block of Non-Belief”. She is a life coach — I can see why and she is who I would want to coach me!

Steve Pavlina can probably be named the Godfather of personal development bloggers and there is a reason. I was lucky enough to meet him when he and his wife Erin (another wonderful blogger) had a meet-up in New York City. I was able to ask him a question that I had been struggling with and he quickly answered it for me and I haven’t struggled with it since. His blog and forum are a great source of education, wit, camaraderie and knowledge. The posts that fascinated me the most was when he actually experimented with polyphasic sleep.

I would like to thank all of the above for their intelligence, writing abilities and their quality of work. I have learned so much from each of you already and know I will continue to learn more. I pass on this award of Excellence as a small token of my gratitude and deep respect for all of you.

Why Do I Blog? What it Means to me!

I found blogging by accident. I had written an e-book on how I healed myself, put a website up and wanted to drive traffic to my site. I took an internet marketing course and they recommended a blog to post articles, make relationships and for advertising for my site. I fell in love with it and haven’t worked on my site since. I have always loved writing but it was limited to journaling and poems for friends and family members. I would also try to make and write thoughtful cards. Now I am writing on two topics that mean a lot to me; healing naturally and kids computer game recommendations. I am meeting people with similar interests and am loving writing more frequently. I feel this is what I am meant to do and the medium I am meant to use to spread my thoughts. It is therapeutic for me to remind myself of the good habits necessary to maintain in order to be in optimal emotional and physical health. Continue this list if you also like to blog…..

We have a voice;
We must be heard;

Hi, I am The Queen of Sugar in The Blogosphere but, My name is Judy in life, I am the one and only Author of Sugar Queens Dream, I am also a Co-Author at Santa’s community Blog. I blog because I enjoy the aspect of friendship’s gained and talking about my funky but “normal” family, the lessons of Life, Its ups and downs, the sad but real things I’ve had to endure and in doing so, I am able to work through the extreme aspects of life with my dignity in tact and my mood still happy, I feel that I work some of my frustrations out during the posts I compile, I then, can look back and see that I remained true to myself and the thinking I have of facing things head on and admitting I am human and with faults.
In the beginning, I blogged solely about the way I love to bake sugary sweet treats for the ones I love, and also my small business. Doing that had given me hours of happiness and a sense of control over my “need” to give to others and to feel love returned in the form of happy faces….. I then, realized, I could let some of my inner feelings out and that others didn’t judge me for doing so. When I realized that other people felt the same feelings as me, it released a feeling of ultimate power over my life and my thoughts…… The post that really shows how I open myself up for others to understand me and my Blog is: The myths of smoking.

I am Geoff of Geoffandcarley.com and I blog for reasons as diverse and as fickle as my moods. Mostly I blog because I’m firmly convinced I’ve figured a few things out and that the world will benefit from my experience the same way I’ve benefited from others’ experiences. One post that I feel captures my emotional involvement and my ire (but not my humor as much) is Decision time.

My name is Sindi and I have written a blog entitled Life is a roller coaster!. My blog is based on the ups and downs of everyday life. I started blogging because I was going through some hard times and I wanted to meet new people to talk to. I like to write and was hoping people might enjoy reading what I have to say. I think the most inspiring post I have written to date is We Effect So Many.

People call me the Midgetmanofsteel (although I’m neither a midget, nor made of steel). I am the sole author the blog Mental Poo: a mostly true and humorous account of things that have happened to me, are happening to me, or are just filling my head and taking up valuable space where images of women should be. You can get a sneak peek into my mess of a brain by reading “Raisins are People” – a true account of my son’s first field trip.

My name is Sandee and I have a blog called Comedy Plus. My blog is just for fun, and I started it to poke fun about everyday life. My reason for blogging is to have fun and meet new friends.

One of my favorite posts is Goodnight Sweetheart! Hello Basil! Eh…Who’s Basil…

Hola! This is Mariuca and I blog because writing is what makes me whole. I write about anything under the sun from life, love, friends to cats and work. I tend to write best when under pressure and my personal favourite post from Mariuca is Love in Disarray.

My name is Susan and I am the Owner of ~~Wake up America ~~, which is a political, right leaning blog.

I feel my most powerful post is called “Are You Proud to be an American……

“Here I am :-) My name is Mauro and I’m the author of 1 Million Love Messages … maybe the biggest love challenge in the blogosphere. Why I blog ???

Hi there World I am Aussie, the author of Little Aussie Cynic and I want to Breathe among others.

I’m Holly from Mama Pajama. I am a stay-at-home mom to my two year old son, Cameron. He is such a joy in our lives. I just stumbled across blogging after watching a television show. I wish I had found it sooner, as it has been so much fun meeting people all across the globe. It’s my own place to share about my family, interests, likes, dislikes, etc. I love that I’ve found my own little circle of blog buddies that will read the stuff I have to say….as mundane or silly as it might be! LOL It’s fun leaving others comments, and knowing that something I post or comment just might make someone smile that day. I’m already having a hard time turning off my computer at night, so I’m hoping to keep this blogging addiction under control. My favorite post so far is Lucky Girl.

I’m Kathleen of Invisible Keepsakes. Well, I blog because if I don’t, I’ll go mad and get very hard to live with. I need a tableau for my creative endeavors. I write poetry. That is to say, I am a poet. I’m not a great poet; nor am I a deep poet, but I love wordplay and creating images and entertaining people with my ideas and interpretations of events and news and random topics. I’ve written quite a lot of poems, some have even been published, but I think the one I would have you read is Bad Dawg #7 because I feel so strongly about it.

I am Beth or Skipper – whoever you are most comfortable with, and I author My Life Starts at Forty Two. I am really trying to turn my life and myself around – and become the best me that I can. It is not always easy with family, illness, etc, but I refuse to give up. This is my journal of journey. One of the best posts that I can use to describe me is The Decision.

I am Delirious the creator of Lifeonalimb. I always wished I could have my own little newspaper and write all of the columns myself. But since I probably wouldn’t make enough money to pay for the paper to publish it, I decided to go the “free route” instead. I don’t think this is my best post, but probably one that most people would enjoy; death-defying Stop in, check it out, leave a comment, then go get therapy.

I am Bridget from “And Miles To Go Before We Sleep” I am a stay at home mom of five young children, ages 1-12, three of which have special needs. Two of my boys are afflicted with Autism so it is a very busy household. I started bogging because our family moves around a lot and we ar very far away from our families and this was a great was to stay in touch with them. I met so many great people through blogging and I enjoyed it so much that I now feel like it’s another job (one that I enjoy). My favorite post so far has to be The Old Tree In The Middle Of The Dry Desert

My name is Winsome Gunning and I am an artist who started blogging about `The Creative Process’ and `The Power of Listening to Silence’ on Winsome Gunning Art Walk. From my own listening to silence came A New Green Earthmy personal voice for green change. About DioxinAbout Simple Ways and A Green Earth are also my voices for green change. On these two blogs I publish contemporary green news from around the world.

I am the wily Blogolope, and I blog for fun and to get things off my chest and hopefully be funny. I created Blogolope because I thought it would be fun, simple as that. Blogolope to Assist Santa, Elves if a funny post. is an example of the issues about which I have felt compelled to write.

Hi, My name is Janice Ng & I’m the miracle mum from “This is a miracle“. I started to blog to document the foot steps of my 2 boys : Amos & Zachary. With this blog, they are able to look back what they have been through: their joy, excitement, laughter, fighting, crying, screaming… etc when they grow up. One of my favourite post is “The loving brothers” on how the 2 brothers showed they tenderly care through a piece of strawberry cake!!

Hi! My name is Crystal, my middle name actually. I am the author of Choc Mint Girl. I started to blog because I need my own space to ‘just write’, but what I find here is quite inspiring and I am amazed at how many different bloggers with different approach ended up as great friends and inspire each other. It doesn’t matter what I blog about as long as the two parties find the connection in one another, that will be the best reason of why do I actually blog. I guess my most relevant post is my very first innocent post, Getting Started.

My name is Michelle of Crow’s Feet . I started writing because I love words and wanted to make people feel… and think, but I soon realised that writing is about connecting. Because the more we connect to others – the more we learn about ourselves. I’m picking my post Small Miracles as representing who I am, why I blog… and why I love the internet.

My name is Claire and I created the blog Bebo Author. I write because I’d go crazy otherwise and I blog to help others (especially young, unpublished writers) share their work. I want to promote writers and give people a place to share their advice and tips for others. My favourite post is a hard one to pick so I’ll say Writing Tips.

My name is Stine, a Norwegian mother of 6, and I blog at Mother’s Home!. I have recently created another blog/site, Mother’s Got A Dot Com. Why? First, for my own enjoyment. I’ve gotten to “know” so many lovely people since I started, and blogging has become an addiction (Sound familiar?) Second, I’m continually amazed that I can actually earn a little extra doing what I enjoy so much… I also get to let out some steam sometimes, as in Stage Mums.


My name is c.a. Marks and I blog for many reasons. At first I started a blog for my knitting, then I moved over into the political arena, and now I’m doing a personal blog, Sex and the South, that was inspired by my all time favorite HBO original series, “Sex and the City”. Yes, I want to be Carrie Bradshaw, with a twist. What kind of twist, I have no idea. I am in the blogging business for the fame and fortune….KIDDING! No, for real, I like to blog because like everyone else it gives me an outlet. There, that’s it, nothing amazing and profound about it. Thanks!


My name is Misty Dawn, and I blog from the middle of nowhere, at My Dogs Keep Me Sane. I began this blog at the advice of one of my best friends. It’s purpose was to give me a place to talk about the frustrations of moving to another state and moving away from my family and friends. Now, it has become so much more than that. Blogging has become an addiction for me. I now use my blog to earn income; I have met so many fabulous friends; I share my writing and my photography; I share my stories, whether they be funny, serious, or sad; I can share my frustrations and my emotions without worrying about being judged for what I say… There are no words to encompass what blogging and the people of the blogosphere mean to me… and that is why I blog. My favorite post would have to be Rough Tough Farm Gang because it is a fun post that will make people smile. I’m not saying it is my best or most thought-out post, but it is my favorite.


The Internet World knows me by LadyJava. My first blog, “how to make money online” was actually the reason why I started blogging. I wanted to share to the world that I was making online share my experience about it. However I enjoyed blogging so much that the habit quickly caught on and I began writing a few other blogs as well. This blog, however, is by far my favorite blog as I’ve made many friends from all over the world and I continue blogging as an avenue for me to share my life with friends and would-be friends. My favorite post is “Coffee and Me” as I am officially a coffee addict..

Hello my name is Deborah author of Climate of Our Future, I also co-author She Walks in Beauty. I blog with passion for our environment.

I am Snooper, owner and the main author of Take Our Country Back. There are several authors that post to my blog and I deeply respect their writings even when at times, I have slight disagreements with their posts. Then again, who wants automatons? I blog because those of us which think along the same lines as I do, are not offered a voice in The Main Stream Media. I blog to support The Troops and nothing but The Troops seeing that I myself and our oldest son ARE Troops. The most hated post from the far left which equates to the most powerful post is We Had A Patriotic Nation Once.


My name is Angie and a stay at home mom to handful soon-to-be 10 month-old son Casey James. A wife to a wonderful guy who loves golf all his life before we met.

The most recent relevant post that I can share would be For those who love the Philosophy of Ambiguity.

My name is Tammy and I’m Mom Knows Everything. I don’t pretend to know everything, but I tell my kids I do. I started blogging when a friend suggested it. I have found that not only is it a great way to relieve stress, but also a great way to feel better about myself. It gives me a sense of accomplishment. I think my favorite post would have to be My Dad And John Wayne. It may not be the best post or the one that got the most comments, but writing this post really helped me deal with the death of my father.

I have never really kept a diary and blogging is as good as keeping a diary. I have six blogs – Puteri’s Musings, Puteri’s Musings 2, Puteri’s Musings 3, and Health and Beauty Notes, are four of them. My favorite post is D-I-V-O-R-C-E, because that was my second post when I first started blogging and one of the main reasons for me to start blogging. I needed to put into words the way I felt when my dear friends went through a divorce.


Hello! My name is Emila and I run my own blog, Emila’s Illustrated Blog. I started blogging in Friendster, later moved to Blogspot and later later moved to my own domain for good.

My name is Carrie and i am keeping busy raisig my four children and trying to keep two blogs on the go. Rantings of a Woman and Jabber Jaws. I first got started with blogging when I was seeing how much fun my friend was having and to be honest the money was really starting to sound nice. Now it has become so much more than money with all the new friends I have been making. A couple post that I find myself thinking back to is first Baking Cookies with my 3 year old son, sometime it’s the little things that matter the most and Helping a Friend, she is so dear to me and I would do anything to help her out. Kim you’ve got my vote!

Hi, my name is Genie and I’m a blogoholic. My blogs include, but are not limited to, Photographer in Training, Tarot Reader, and Tarot 101. I don’t know that there is any one particular blog post that is especially revealing about me, but this one contains photographs that I am particularly fond of, especially since my husband is in one of them and because I shot them in my own town: Fire. I blog because I live in a small community with few kindred souls. I blog so that I can connect.


My name is Jeni and the name of my blog is Down River Drivel, which basically means “hogwash” or b.s. in a politer way. I blog as a means to remember – things about my family, my kids and especially my grandchildren or events from my youth, back in the dark ages and also, as a way to practice just playing with words. My favorite post would be this one, titled “Deep Roots” which explains a bit more about me.

It was truly a great pleasure to know them and I am honored to award them in

My name is Anna, and I blog at Beth & Cory’s Mom and A Mind Forever Voyaging. I originally started blogging because our library was planning to start a blog, and I wanted to see which blogging site would work best – so I signed up for a few. First I just played around with the design. I’d post my thoughts on what was going on around the house or in the news occasionally, but I wasn’t very consistent. Then I started reading other people’s blogs and making friends, and it was so much fun that I started posting more! One of my more memorable posts is Oh, I am Good, because I stepped outside my comfort zone and personality type and actually let people know I messed up.


I am known as Sometimes Saintly Nick.

Helo, Nightwing here. Always wonder about the world of blogging and what it was all about. So i gave it a go and thus Carpe Diem was born. After only a few months of blogging, have made many new friends around the world. I like to read books and have also use my blog to post book reviews. Here is one example of it. Happy blogging.

My name is Suzanne and my blogs are Miss Kitty Fantastico and The Synergizer’s Journal. (I’m working on coming up with better names!) I started blogging back when it was called journaling. I was a newly wed and needed an outlet for my thoughts and feelings. Later, I became hooked on comments and started meeting a lot of new people. One of my favorite things about meeting friends online is that you get to talk to people who you probably wouldn’t meet in real life. Now, I’m a working mom and have started blogging for money to help make ends meet. My favortite post (at least in recent memory) was a Mama Talk column I wrote about my husband for Father’s Day. It’s called Priorities change when husbands become fathers.

Hello there, I’m AK, basically it stands for Ahmad Kamal. My blogsite is Yang Terdalam (slightly meaning The Deepest). I’ve created this blog to spread what I feel inside to the world, as I myself found that there so much things that I have to let it unsaid in this reality world. So, I’ve created Yang Terdalam to fulfill my needs to give people my perspectives and poits of views on certain aspect. I usually just ramble myself out in my blog, and only some people can stand my ‘tone’ in the blog, as I usually express my depress tone. Well, can’t blame me, I have an idea to write things when I’m in depress mood. The most memorable entries that I’ve been made are Am I Not Good Enough?/ The Promo – Am I Not Good Enough Part 2 / Am I Not Good Enough – Part 2 / Gunung Ledang Mind-Field Journey / Saya Anak Malaysia!!! / Nescafe Bodoh!

Hello world! My name is Lucel Juliana, you can call me Juliana. I author the blog, My World. I’m a newbie blogger and I’m so loving it.

And if anyone out there tries to tell the story of my life, I prefer that it’s going to be me. The one post I’m really passionate about is Cell Phone Hazard . I want to spread awareness about lurking dangers on cell phone use.


I don’t know why I ever started blogging. I think it was an experiment. My business blog was created as a response to customer questions. All my other blogs, and I have too many to list them here, came into existence because it was too difficult to create just one blog to cover so many dreams and ideas. So now you know: I blog to share dreams. I do it with Pamil Visions Tutorials and I do it with Romania Simply Surprising. And sharing dreams will never stop… This list shares dreams too. And I am happy to be part of a collective dream. We can change the world when we dream together.


Hello World! I’m Momma Bean. This little blog started out as a way for my out-of-state sisters and sister-in-law to feel more involved with the Beans as they grew up. I didn’t know that it would be around this long, that I’d enjoy it this much or that I would find such insight and camaraderie from complete strangers who, where ever they are, are going through the same things as me, being a mother. So, now I blog to share my special Beans with family and friends, to rave and whine about the life of a (still) new mom and to learn from such amazing women around the world. One of my favorite posts is this one about me and self-image and passing this onto the Beans. Too many women do this to themselves and I admittedly still criticize myself in front of the Beans.


My name is Jamilla a.k.a Jamy. What I Feel, I Just Blog is really my inner voice to tell anything that I am aware of in my life. I started blogging since June 2007, not long ago. I am happy that I can share and give love, happiness, caring and support through blogging together with a group of my bloggermates. My quote is “Make difference in your life by giving love, happiness, hope, joy, support and encouragement to the world!” The post that I really appreciate and respect myself is Turn Blogging Into A Real World . My first step towards the difference and miracle to the people who is around me.


My name is Kristine and my blog is Fitzsimmons Family Adventures. I started blogging as a way to keep family in the loop. We have family all over that we don’t see on a regular basis and it’s a great way to let them know what’s been going on with us. I’ve met a lot of great people and I love reading about their lives as well. I’m a stay at home mom and when I was introduced to blogging for money, I was pretty excited about the opportunity to supplement our income. I post LOTS of pictures and videos of my son Jackson. It’s an addiction. One of my favorite posts is from March of this year because it captures so many of his great expressions.


I’m Deb, and I blog at Mom of 3 Girls because, well I have three little girls here at home! :) I originally started my blog because I began to read other blogs that I found online and was inspired to share my own thoughts. I keep doing it because I’ve found it to be a creative outlet for my thoughts and emotions, a wonderful way to keep in touch with people and because of the amazing community of other bloggers that I have found. It’s also a great way to help keep my sanity as I juggle work, home, kids and the rest of my life! I think my favorite post has to be My Two Jobs because it sums up everything that I feel about my life right now.

My name is Joy or thejoybird my blog is A Day In the Life… I started blogging to help me get through the day. I am a first time mom and although I have the most beautiful, wonderful 13 month old daughter I still feel like pulling my hair out on a daily basis. I wanted some place where I could vent and connect with other moms and also make new friends (who aren’t moms).

“Why do maike blog?” The very first slide crossing my mind consists of these three points – Learned, Shared, and Gained. They form a cycle which I wanted to go through while I blog about my life here. I shared whatever I learned, experienced and gained, by the power of a little space. Besides, I have the opportunity to meet friends from every corner around, we colored each others life, and together we make the world flatter and flatter. Blogging enriched and made my life extraordinary.

I am Karen, writer of the blog, Journey with WaterLearner. My blog documents my humble journey of Awareness and Practical Spirituality. I am glad to have found many like-minded buddies in the blogosphere. I was the humble servant of the Spiritual Boot Camp for Say No Evil which was attended by 21 campers. Some of my favourite posts that might guide you to reflection are: The Pearl Within, Learn to Sink, Spiritual Facial & Uneasy Goodness.

Hey there, this is SaeWei from As Bratty As Me. I blogged for a few reasons too. One is of course to share my views and opinions to all the readers out there. Second, to earn extra bucks. And of course to know more people. And since Blogging is like the “IN” thing now, I have no choice but to step my foot into this wonderful world of blogsophere. :)

Hi…I’m Twilight, my blog is called Learning Curve on the Ecliptic I write about astrology. I know that some people look on astrology as silly supersition, I have reason to believe otherwise. Two main reasons for blogging: I enjoy writing, and while continuing to learn, I like sharing my discoveries on how astrology relates to art, music, politics, movies, TV, current affairs, and my own experiences. I often compile a related video with music to include in my blog. My representative blog entry: the American political scene is at the front of my mind just now, so a link to this recent post Holding on for a Hero, my video compilation included.

My name is Rebecca and I am the author of Rebecca’s Green Blog. I blog because I care about the environment. My site is focused on the earth, green ideas, and ways that we all can easily be involved in the fate of our world. I am not a great writer but I like to share useful information. My most representative post is Welcome to Rebecca’s Green Blog.

Hello World! My name is Bobby Revell. I blog to spread love and friendship. I love all people! My goal is to destroy prejudice and help people realize that it is love, not money that determines success. I hope to work with all of you so that EVERYONE ON EARTH WILL BE FRIENDS! This will make war a distant memory. I believe in my purpose. I blog for my readers, not for myself. I will never again ask anyone for a link because a link should be a gift. You shouldn’t have to ask for a gift! I am like a zen artist who works on a piece but doesn’t sign his name on it. It is unimportant what I do. It is important for what I do to have an impact on bringing love to all of you. My blog is about blogging ethics. I see it as the spiritual blogging ethics of love! One post that defines who I am is Promoting Racial Unity. I love you all!

My name is Eric, better known as Speedcat Hollydale I started blogging because I had no computer experience, and wanted to find out what all the hype was about. That was a little over a year ago. My post is World Record Breaking Award Ceremony Held at the S… . This post brought the most visitors, comments, and was the most fun. I am an overlinker :-)

My name is Rebecca and I am the author of Rebecca’s Healthy Food Blog. I blog because I care about eating healthy and spreading the word about some of the issues involving food today. My most representative post is The Wonders of Nature.

Hiya! I’m Shannon and I blog at Chicken’s Life, I started because I am too lazy to write in a diary and most of the time I cannot read my own writing…so it seems a bit pointless. I’m not sure I have a specific post that I like the most, I blog about my life what ails and what makes me laugh. Here is a post that makes me happy, we went to Pismo Beach, Ca.

Christy aka Angelstar blogs for a very simple reason; I LOVE writing and blogging is just one creative way of not just writing but also putting my ideas into colors and illustrations to tell others what I think or find funny. I LOVE reading and writing so much that it’s just part of me and I have so many blogs..my primary blog, Food blog, Travel, Movies, Mysteries, Women’s Zine and I just love them all! I just LOVE doing this 😀 (it just opens a window to the soul)


I am LeeChien, writer of It’s All About LIFE & SHARING. Clear enough with my blog’s title, it’s all about my LIFE and the stuffs i would like to SHARE.


Her name’s Bobo, the little Bimbo from a small sunny island called Singapore. She thinks that the world may not know enough about her little happy homeland… and some may have the wrong impression of Singapore. With all the “fines” and rules in the country, she hopes to have a chance to show people that Singapore is a really FINE country with posts like Attractions in Singapore and Singlish. Her “Bimbo with a Twist” is also a complaint dumping ground when her days really suck and she just doesn’t want to terrorise any individual with her endless ranting… she needs to terrorise a nice corner of this blogosphere.


My name is Darlene.I am a stay home wife & mommy to our two year old adorable son.I’ve got three sites that’s called My Life,My World,Mommy’s Gibble Gabbles & Author’s Sweet Life.I blog because i want to share to my friends my experiences of what kind of life i have in here since i got here in United States Of America being with my family & how grateful i am having them in my life.

Hello, world! My name is Jodi, also known as sm00bs in the virtual world. I am a thirtysomething mother to a darling little girl and wife to a wonderful man. The little corner of the innerwebs that I call home is A Room with a sm00. I use it mostly for a way to keep my family and friends updated on the goings on of my mostly boring life since I live so far away from everyone. Now that my daughter is on the scene, I post a fair number of pictures and videos along with lots of stories about her. Other than that, I write about what I love, which includes (but not limited to) cooking, baking, knitting, gardening, travel, computers, movies, and music. Of course, Sophie will always be my favorite topic, and my favorite (and possibly most informative) post is about her signing, complete with a video of her signing with flashcards (her idea, I promise). Stop by and say a quick hi. I’d love to meet new people!

I blog to solve the too-much-information problem for people using the internet to get a definitive answer to the question, “How do I get on that; game show, reality show, relationship show, interior design show, video clip show, talent competition, lifestyle program, talk show, judge show, real estate program, cooking show, fashion show, make-over show, how-to show…”
My definitive post is the one that greets you at the link above.


Mabuhay! Lira here, author of Tasteful voyage : narrations of an expressive mind . Why I’m into blogging? Simple, I wanna share a part of my life to my fellows which I know would somehow contribute to their lives as well. I feel great writing what I’m into and at the same time meeting new friends and learning from their inputs —vast of inputs. They said “the best teacher is your experience” and this is it. I gain knowledge from them and vice versa. Remembering Papa for me is my most relevant post.


I’m Cat, and I also go by Ami-chan a lot on line hence running the domain ami-chan.net. I have my own company doing tarot readings and hypnotherapy that site is Look Beyond Mirrors, and I just recently started a blog which is primarily for doing “picture a day” and that is eryssa.net. When I started out blogging it was on The Wolf’s Kiss on livejournal, and I mostly started up to vent about work and keep in touch with friends, and then realized I could use a blog on my website as a way to update our family overseas about things that were going on and they could read it when they liked instead of me constantly spamming their inboxes with emails. One of my favorite recent posts is when I talked about where I grew up.


I’m Nina Munteanu, ecologist, SF author, wife and mother and lover on a journey on this beloved planet Earth…your Alien Next Door. I blog for the same reason that I write my short stories and novels…because I have to. I blog to share my passion for the beauty and wonder of this planet Earth through science and art and to share the little wisdom and insight I’ve gained in my few years on the Earth…and certainly to gain some from you (I love your comments! Thank you!). My favorite post is about one of my heroes, Doctor Lynn Margulis, courageous scientist who would not be dissuaded from speaking the truth even when at the time it seemed like a lie: imagine saying we evolve through cooperation; not competition! What anti-Darwinian cheek!


I’m Sassy from The Sassy Southerner. I am a 31 year old stay at home mother and wife. I started blogging as a way to vent some things that I have kept buried inside my soul for a long time. I write in hopes to reach someone out there and maybe let them know they are not alone in the world. I write whatever comes to mind. I guess one of my favorite post (too many to chose from) is when I heard some noises and got scared.

My name is Shinade and I originally starting blogging in protest of America’s current political administration and policies. However, I came under attack and outside pressure and I was also becoming eaten up with anger and hatred so I decided to start this blog The Painted Veil in the hopes of sharing love and beauty with the world. My most memorable and also my favorite post ever is: “An Opal Is An Opal by Any Other Name.” It is a tale and a parable concerning how we can learn to respect and honor each other’s differences and strive for love and peace world wide.

My name’s Nasyrah, or also known as ai-Chan. I have two blogs.I’m the author of randomness XD. (I love to talk about random things) and ai’s-Kitchen. Why I blog? I blog because I want to tell people that my life is interesting. Nah! I;m just kidding! I blog because writing is fun, and I’d like to know what others think of my randomness post. Hurm.. my memorable entry? Since Randomness XD and ai’s – kitchen is still new, I think, it’s First Dreams.

Hi! My name is Thira. I author the blog As The World Turns. I blog because I love and enjoy it. I used to write on journals before but blogging online is more fun. With blogging there are so many things one can do. You can write down your thoughts, experiences and interests. You can express how you feel, learn many things, share information and knowledge, meet new friends and a lot of interesting people. Like they said, there is a world of endless resources out there.

Hello. I’m Delmer, an IT person and the guy who writes What’s a Delmer Look Like? I started writing a blog to keep my family current with what was going on with my kids. Day after day of “We had soccer practice tonight” got old fast and I sort of went in scattered directions. WADLL falls into the personal-diary category and I (still) blog about my children, growing up, cycling, pituitary tumors, and things I think are sort of interesting. A fairly safe entry to read is: Stonehenge. (You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, it’ll become part of you.)

My name is April and my blog is called Finding my own happily ever after. I began blogging several years ago, and even though it was public, I had no one on my friends list and didn’t really figure many people would randomly find my page. Last year I learned how much fun blogging could be when you were interacting with other people, and I have become totally addicted to it. My blog consists of daily recaps and a rant here or there. I am 28 years old and attending school full time, oh and I live with my bf, my brother, and my 6 year old nephew so it’s pretty chaotic at times and gives me plenty to write about. I enjoy getting to know new friends and interacting with people. I am a girl of few words in person, kinda shy, and maybe even anti-social, but in my blog I express myself pretty easily and love getting to know others. I enjoy getting comments, but I don’t flip out if someone doesn’t and I try to comment as much as I can, but I hate repeating something that someone else has said. I am always happy to make new friends, friends of all kinds, I am not easily offended and I try to be very open minded.

My name is WalksFarWoman and I blog because…Kissing the Dogwood is my spiritual home. The idea evolved from an inspired moment as did the name and took me completely by surprise. It was like being given a map and a destination which I was compelled to follow – and in doing so have had the journey of a lifetime! Just like the elements of a successful life, blogging is all about good communication, learning through experience and also gathering hope, joy and a liberal dressing of laughter wherever we can. My favourite post is always my most recent so here it is – ‘Mermaids Cove’.

Yo, wazzup. My name is Melanie and I enjoy talking in bizarre manners. I host two little blog-ditties: A Quiet Symphony & Amberwood Ambrosia. I’m a wannabe author, editor, dreamer, student, wife, mother–I say “wannabe” because I am still functioning under some strange esoteric idealism that one day I will “arrive” at perfection–or at least a successful shadow of it. Yes, I know; the only thing that I am completely is a dreamer. So, with all that randomness out of the way, the truth is I never even knew what a blog was before my gal-pal Rebecca over at A Not-So-Desperate Housewife. I don’t remember how she tricked and ensnared me into this world of blogosphere–whether through candy or compliments, here I am. I don’t think I really have some great life-altering thesis on why I blog, other than it convinces me that I exist. By plastering my thoughts and emotions on canvas (be it virtual), I am allowed a new outlet in which to breathe. I guess that’s pretty existential in itself–and that’s just fine by me. Most favored post? Hmmm… I guess I’d have to say The Importance of Promptness because it’s all about my hubby.

Hi yah, I am Ana, a Filipina young woman, married with two beautiful children, residing in the motor city-up in the suburb, and I blog because I love meeting and interacting with other people that shares my interests as well as making friends in the process. More reasons for me to consider are that, every once in a while I get to express my feelings and share just about anything that I find interesting and informative. Blogging is a way for me to have a space I call my very own where I can take my time thinking out loud and be goofy if I want to. Yes, we get to rule in our little cyber world. I enjoy ruling my humble abodes on the net and they are the following; Ana’s Daily Reflections, Filipina Isle, Moments to Ponder, My Musing Pad, and Memoirs of a Filipina-as my personal non-sponsored blog. Now, the post I consider to be important, well, maybe helpful if you are someone interested in purchasing a 1and1 domain because it will help you if you need a hand with setting up your custom domain name: My 1and1 Domain Tutorial. I enjoy giving people a hand whenever possible as long as I know how. I am always willing to help others when I can. Yep, that’s me!

My name is Mrs. Nesbitt and I blog because Mrs Nesbitt’s Place, I would like to think is a place where I share the humble unassuming thoughts I have about everyday things such as the place where we live, the life I lead with my hubby, together with our German shepherds Wilma and Elsie, our puss Ella and our gander Jo. I hope I take the time to share the appreciation I have for the great Yorkshire moors, the food I love to cook and the fun we have when out on our motorbike. I love photographing what makes me smile and allows me to feel blessed.

“Counting my blessings, recounts , O. K”. .My name is i beati the blessed one for I have thus far survived cancer and lots of problems with it. Because of the many stresses in my life, I blog and try to spread cheer and thoughts to everyone. Some nights I can’t sleep so I blog and read others ponderings..I am educating myself and expanding my world immensely. I love something about each post so come and join the Happy Spirits at i beati and leave a comment for Sandy .

Hi blogosphere, My name is Maggie and my little spot on the globe is Ramblings of Maggie. I enjoy blogging and I really enjoy reading the blogs of the friends I’ve made since I’ve started over a year ago. I talk about my family and my children. I might post more pictures of my kids than you might want to see. I go through cycles. For weeks you might not know I have any off spring then boom you will know. Why do I blog? Well, some might say “to fill that need that every women has to spread the word”. What post is my favorite. That is so hard to answer. Today I am picking the letter I wrote to my son.

My name is David, and I write An American In…. I am in my late twenties and currently living with my wife and two cats in Seoul, Korea. We travel the globe for work and pleasure and my expat experiences make up a large portion of my writing. I am also a fan of sport (American football and baseball, mostly) as well as into current events and politics. My blog is not usually political, but I indulge myself once in a while. I enjoy meeting new people and truly cherish a diversity of viewpoints. I hope to see each and every one of you visiting soon and often!

Hallo world, I am Trinity from Rooms of My Heart. I blog to be a salt and light of the world, to make friends and hopefully can be a blessing to others. I share my life on 8 things that make me who I am now.

My name’s Bob Kingsley, author of ‘Somerset’ Bob’s Place. I blog because I want to be a writer. I’ve wanted to be known as a writer all my life, and as I’ve now reached my early 50s I figured I ought to get started before it’s too late! I thought science fiction would be my forté (I wrote a number of short stories some years ago, available at my site’s Writing Archive), but since starting my blog in March 2007 I’ve discovered I have a passion for writing non-fiction pieces — principally about the environment and climate change, but also taking in the places I’ve visited, my online/computer experiences, the random thoughts I have, the music I love and the people I met during my time as a radio presenter. It’s a pretty eclectic collection of posts. I don’t think I’ve written my favourite post yet, but one that’s right up there is Tagged With Music, which was the subject of another meme that came my way — it really made me think, which is what I love about being tagged with memes.

Hi! My name is Theresa I am the author of My Emancipation. I blog because I love and enjoy it. I used to write on journals before but blogging online is more fun. With blogging there’s no limit, you can freely write you thoughts, you opinions without anyone going against you. Its a fun way to make friends too & a great way in getting to know them. Learn through trials and error every end of the day as you develop your blog. Basically my blog is all about me, so if you wanna know me more just be patient enough to read my blog, thanks for your time. GOD BLESS

Hello everyone! I’m Liza the author of moms…..check nyo. I am actually new to the blogging world… it was my husband and my daughter who introduced me to blog, and now I’m hooked. I love to write about my family, my hobbies, my interests and would love to share some tips and how to’s on things I love doing. Blogging is such a good idea because you get to express your feelings and your thoughts and a good shock absorber, too. My most relevant post is about ‘My brave little boy‘…. common everyone…. you’re invited :)

My name is Jo Beaufoix, and I blog because I need a creative outlet. Hmmm, that makes me sound a bit like a drain doesn’t it? But I’m not, I’m a 32 year old mum with a penchant for wine and chocolate, a dream of publishing my first book, and a talent for wiping up all kinds of mess… (Who’d have small children?) My blog began as an idea from a friend and has grown into a place to be the me not everybody sees, and to make new friends. There’s no dress code, I don’t mind if you bring your own food, and well, if you need to fart just let it go, I mean, we’re all human right? It’s also a place for me to write, every day, which is a good habit for me to get into, and a place to store memories and work things out. Picking a favourite post is hard, but I like this one and it’s recent, Big sighhhhhhh. I hope you enjoy it.

Greetings, all. I’m Emily from Mama’s Bloggin and this blog was born out of my need to get it all out. I was reeling from the breakup, the move back in with my folks, PPD, and I sat in front of the computer for hours. Writing, gaming, reading, chatting, ANYTHING to keep my (fat) ass in that chair and away from any interaction with another human being face to face. I planned my grocery trips for the times when the only people in the store were me and the employees. (As you can see, the “TIME CAVE” acronym applies as a phrase for me, not necessarily as the separately defined letters.) With the passing of time, a lot of these things have faded from screaming issues to a gentle throbbing ache every now and then. I found other bloggers who felt the way I did at the time, as well as message boards. I got better. THINGS got better.

I’m Lynn and I blog at Everything and then Some. I blog because I like to share ideas and experiences with bloggers around the world. It’s like virtual traveling. I am interested in other countries’ culture. Blogs about food, books, movies, day to day experiences and everything about being a mom get my attention. I would like to share this link to one of my posts, Avocado which tells of the story behind my blog name.

Howdy folks, my name is Nick and I own Anything Goes! I started blogging just for the fun of it and it turned out to be an interesting adventure. Initially the main reason I blog was to rant and rave about things that happen in my life such as my crazy neighbors, my wonderful wife and my best buddies. I have another blog that I’m author of as well which is called Spiff, The Spaceman. You’ll find more zany stuff in that blog, which I created for the sole purpose of making money through blogging.

Hello! My name is Florence. I’m the author of At Home With Popski. I’m a greenhorn in blogging. I started my blog because of blog envy! I’ve been lurking in other people’s blogs for the longest time and I liked how they were able to express their random thoughts. I decided to blog so I can have my own creative outlet and to have a venue for venting out my angst! I’ve been a Stay-At-Home mom for 16 years so naturally and logically, I blog about my thoughts on family life here in my country, the Philippines. With the few posts that I have, my choice post, though not necessarily the most representative of me is the one that describes me as The OC.

i blog under the cyber-nom-de-plume “fortuitous faery” in writings on the wall, a personal blog i created in 2001. my early posts have been mainly inspired by “bridget jones’ diary” and were usually concise and no more than 3 sentences. i originally blogged in the philippines, but have now transplanted my blogging wand in new jersey (land of bon jovi and campbell’s soup). i blog because it allows me to exercise my thinking skills while i stare at the computer screen, putting my thoughts to keyboard, and then eventually sharing it with the entire cyber universe. i blog because i enjoy reading other people’s blogs and have found that one can make new friends through it, while sharing one’s take on life’s everyday surprises, adventures and simple pleasures. i blog mostly about my travels, books and movies that have delighted me, and my life in new jersey. read about my adopted home state in my posts “a sunday in sussex” and “the beach of sand and fog“.

Hi, I’m Jenny Mannion. I blog because I think my story is important to me told. I was ill for many years and had doctors telling me I would only get worse. It wasn’t until I became aware of the law of attraction and the mind/body connection that I KNEW I could heal myself. I am now pain free and pain pill free and want to share my story with many to empower them to look at their health and how to make it optimum without pills. I am not against all medications but believe doctors need to take a more integrative approach. Please visit me at heal pain naturally for natural ways to heal physically and emotionally. Of if you have kids and want non-violent computer game recommendations for them — visit my other blog on kids computer games here.
