It Takes A Village To Blog

We’re halfway through the September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge with prompt #8: Pay It Forward. Give a shout-out to 3-4 bloggers whose posts you enjoy. Why? Share their URL and social media info.

The giveaway is still going strong here.

My shout-out is for some ladies who have supported me tremendously the last several months. Tweets, retweets, +1s, link-ups, the whole nine. We bloggers don’t do this thing by ourselves. There is always someone pushing us, motivating us, inspiring us. And the awesome thing is most of them are just being themselves when they do it. They aren’t looking for anything in return. They are simply sharing content that they feel others should read. Here’s to those bloggers who do that for me.


Epic Mommy Adventures
Natasha of Epic Mommy Adventures


Natasha over at Epic Mommy Adventures hosts several awesome linky parties weekly that I have co-hosted. And she posts great articles on being a single mom which stem from her experience with her cutie pie son, Micah. She is the ultimate at linking up, sharing, and supporting other bloggers. Check out her blog, follow her on Twitter, and +1 her posts on Google +.



I had the pleasure of meeting Kim at This Ole Mom a few months ago. You have probably read about bloggers who get together and bond over their blogging experiences. Particularly those who live in large metropolitan cities. I was so excited to connect with someone in my small town. And how did I find her? Through SITS! We’re way overdue for another face-to-face. But we still connect on Twitter, Google +, and Facebook. Check her out!

My girl Kenya at Live Laugh Blog! never fails to make me smile, laugh, or say “Damn, why didn’t I think of that?”. She is always writing, doing, and moving right along. Even when she thinks she’s not. We both obsess over our young sons who keep us motivated and inspired. And as self-published authors, we support one another in making our voices heard. Check her out on Twitter (which she is on constantly), her blog, and Google+.


Link up your shout-outs below!
