Here are the Featured posts from last week!


Rhonda chose A Great Day, An Amazing Year – A Journey from Illness to Health and Happiness from Our Little House In the Country. “This post was my favorite this week because it demonstrated how our life can change in a split second. This blogger went from what seemed to be a healthy life, a career outside the home, 2 children and a husband into a fight for her life. As a result of an unforeseen illness, she was put into a position of working for entire year to regain her health. She has fight her way back and now has a new set of priorities. She is now working to stay healthy and enjoying a career as a stay at home mom. This post demonstrates perseverance and a new outlook on life.”


Cindy chose 9 Useful Graduation Gifts Under $25 from Earning & Save with Sarah Fuller. “I usually give gift cards for graduation but I am always afraid they will be spent on something frivolous instead of something that is really needed. In her post Sarah gives some great ideas that almost any graduate will need.”

Pay Pal on blog

April chose How to Set Up Advertising on Your Blog Using Pay Pal from Barbie Bieber & Beyond – Raising Girls. “A lot of bloggers are looking to advertise on their site and having an easy option is useful. Did you know you can use Paypal? If not, you should definitely check out this how to!”

This post also received the most clicks this week.


Carolyn chose 4 Things You Should Know About Living With a 3 year old from Just A Touch of Crazy. “I thought it was really insightful and honest.”


Angel chose Mother’s Day Curly Paper Hyacinths from Purple Hues and Me. “I love that these flowers were so easy to make and really lovely when completed. My girls and I can make these together.”


Juanita chose What I Made Yesterday is Wordless Wednesday from Oh My Heartsie Girl. “As a long time knitter, I am always in awe of how versatile crochet is. I have only recently begun to crochet, and these are so super cute. I want to give them a go.”


Rachel chose Blogging Drives Me Crazy from LadyBlogger. “I love how honest and real this post is!”

Lorna also chose this post. “I completely relate to this post!”


Jillian chose Blog Monetization from Snippets of Inspiration. “I chose this post because as a mom trying to monetize my blog as much as possible, so that I can eventually be a stay at home mom, this post gave me some great new places to look for that financial support.”


Stacey chose I Hate you and I don’t even Know you from Living in Mommywood. “When I was growing up, I heard many of the old judgments against others that didn’t sit well with me. I have tried as a mom to leave such things where they belong…in the past. I raise my kids to show care and respect to all people, no matter who they are. I also allow them to blossom in their own thoughts and wants by simply guiding them with honesty and love. Great post!”


Natasha chose A Rant About TV, and 15 Better Uses of Your Time from My Salt, His Light. “Love this post! I feel the exact same way – television has definitely changed in recent years, and not for the better, but for the worse. I look forward to seeing more positive programming in the years to come. Great post!”
