This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Bloggie Blog Blog

First of all, I would like to welcome all of my new readers. I hope you will come to enjoy your time here and return again!

Because I have some new readers thanks to YaYa's post, Jenner's post and to the VGNO party I crashed last night, I thought it is time for me to review what makes my blog worthy of readers.

And so, my dear loyal blog-buddies, I ask you, what makes you come back again and again? What features on my blog do you like best? What do you like least?

Some of my current features include:

Card Challenge - though I admit, I'm a bit behind on that one, and I apologise.
Friday Funny
Book Reviews
Movie Reviews
Product Reviews
Wordless Wednesday

Some features I am considering to start include:

Featured Follower -- Where I introduce one of my followers, get to know them a little better.
Mail Box - Where I will show you what I got in the mail!! :) (snail or e-mail)
Product Reviews - While I already do some product reviews, I would like to do more. In fact, do you have a product you want me to review?? Email me! :)
Etsy <3 - I have become an Etsy Addict!!! I just might buy everything in the store!!

Comment below or email me and let me know what I can do to make this blog the best it can be!

They all sound like good ideas! Honestly, I come back because you are endearing and a motivator. You've been through SO MUCH and you still plug forward in life. It's inspirational.

not to mention you are a caring individual and it's nice to come across people like you in bloggy land that actually put an effort into the blogging relationships that can be formed.

We're both going through things in life (on different spectrums) and it's nice to have you in my life to "lean on" when I need to and to "laugh with" when we're up for it. I hope that you also look to me as someone to "lean on" in your times of need.

Keep up the great blogging!

I only found you through Jenners recently so I'm not sure I have a good answer for this but I like everything you've mentioned that you do and will be doing. Most of all, I like the person that you are.

First off, your heading brought me here. Your description of yourself and why this blog was created made me stay stay. I've developed a great admiration for you for how you cope with your life on a day to day basis. Your strength and courage are amazing. I try to put myself in your shoe and I just can't picture myself doing what you're doing that's why I admire you so.

And then when I saw your card challenge, I just got hooked too. I have actually found someone on blogasphere who love doing what I love...I feel we have something in common there. And because of your challenge I get a chance to show off a little bit of what I thought is a talent of mine which I happen to love very much.

I'm working on some projects, don't know when they will be done, but as soon as they are, I just might have to review it. We'll see how gutsy I am..eheheh.

You are doing a great thing with your blog. I love visiting your blog even if sometimes I don't comment.

Your ideas are all great! To be honest, I come here because you are such a good person. I don't know how to desctibe it, but I feel connected to you somehow. I think you should just be you:0)

I happened to come through from the VGNO last night and like another commenter said, your title grabbed me. I just plan on being here for support anytime you need it. Having friends in the blosphere helps us all get through.

Well, first and foremost, you are a wonderful friend...but of course there are other reasons I love to read your blogs. :-) I do love all of your features, especially the crafty ones -- maybe after I quit my job I will have more time to participate!! Hooray!

And, I've told you before but you don't seem to quite believe have a wonderful sense of humor. When I talk to you online or read your writings, I laugh out loud, and it's not laughing AT's laughing WITH you. You just have a very special way with words and you find humor in all of life around you, which is great...not everyone can do that, especially in the face of the sadness and losses you have faced. I really admire you, Ter. Just keep up what you've been doing and you're all set! Love you!! xx

All those ideas are great. I love it when blogs have a theme day.

I am here because your story grabbed me and you went thru a monumental loss and you are still cooking along with life. It is an inspiration.

Also, I love doing card challenges. One of these days, I will get out of my creative funk and make a card.

pam said...

I have to agree with everyone else. I come to be your friend, and hope to offer you some strength.

Whatever you decide will be great.

It doesn't matter what you do I will always come back to check your blog. I came to you through my sister Jen's blog links and I stayed because we had stuff in common. In the beginning it was your organization posts and book reviews, and posts about Emma that caught my eye. A lot has changed since then and I think you should post whatever makes you happy. :)

Jo said...

I love the features of your blog... not just day to day ramblings (like mine! LOL). The featured follower sounds cool... so does mail box :)

Yeah... let's not talk about your etsy addiction! Ruining my surprise like that! LMAO!!!! (I blogged about it too!)

I also admire your resiliance!


Caitlin said...

any of those ideas sound great. I would maybe vote for etsy, just because I am also an etsy addict and love finding new stores..?
I think that you are doing great- keep up the good work

Jenners said...

I'm so glad you are getting more readers and I might have helped a little bit! I think you should do what makes YOU happy and inspires you. Any one of those things you suggested sounds good, but I always think that any good blogger just does what captures their fancy -- when you are interested in what you are doing, that is what makes it interesting for your readers!
