October felt like a good month for blogging. The new round of GCBC got up and running (and I’m loving all the new participation, by the way), and I don’t know, things just kind of felt abuzz in Blogworld. I got a lot of great entries for the Motherhood photo contest, which I’ll probably post for your voting starting tomorrow. I got a few entries for the fake General Conference talk thing, so if you’re still thinking about writing one, go ahead and do it and send it in soon so I can feature it sometime in November.
I also read a lot of great posts out there by talented cyberfriends, so I wanted to share some of my favorites. It’s kind of a long list, so I marked my top three or four with a red star in case you’re intimidated by the quantity. But they’re all great, so if you want to sit back and read some good stuff, leave the folks a little comment love and let them know you dropped by and admired their work. My criteria for picking favorites is super-vague. It’s either something profound, memorable, teaches a lesson I needed to learn, made me laugh on a day I needed to, or it’s simply something I can relate to well. Anyway, I hope it helps you narrow down some good reading. If you’re a “winner,” click on the award for details.
And in the humor category:
If you have a post you read this month that you just loved, feel free to leave the link and share your find. Have a great week. Stay tuned for great motherhood photos.
Oh, wait. Obligatory Halloween picture:
(Clark as a knight. Grant as Harry Potter. Natalie had costume meltdown because her ballerina clothes were “bothering” her, so she decided to be a cat instead. It was cold and rainy, so she lasted for 2 houses and went home to hand out candy with daddy. So no pictures of her; too much drama.) Our kids put half their candy in a bowl and leave it on the back porch for The Great Pumpkin, who whisks it away and leaves a small toy in its stead. (Very private note: Matt and I ate a lot of candy at approximately 11 p.m. last night.) How was your Halloween?
