Idea for a new featured blogger

Idea for a new featured blogger

Postby mamalackey on Wed Jan 12, 2011 12:10 pm

Kady, Could perhaps when looking for the next replacement featured blogger (cause there's always gonna be a next time) could someone with teen or adult children be considered? Mygr8crew's blog today was great and something completely different. Not all of the moms here have babies, toddlers and younger elementary school age kids and a look at our world would be nice.

Those of you who don't go read the non-featured blogs miss a lot. Some of the women here are awesome writers, like Mygr8crew.

I've asked for this, too. We aren't a "market" for the KC Star, we could be, but ignored ...

Thanks for the compliment, Dollar. But I'm guessing I wouldn't qualify since I live 325 miles away. :) And I have no writing talent.

I agree with Mamma Lackey,

Not that she is not a great writer, I don't know anything about that. But, I would like to read a blog with someone with older kids too.

Mygr8crew is a really talented writer and I would love to see her fill that spot!

Off-topic: Hey, Lilac, I really like your avie!

Sorry, I don't have much to add... except, yes, I agree that diversity is cool and yes, I should be reading more of the blogs. Honestly, a lot of times real blogs get sandwiched between non-blogs, and then swept off the page -- I don't even see them before they are gone.

Thanks Proxie~

It is me with Ben when he was 4.

I used to sing him a song that soothed him. In the picture he was sad and I started quietly singing his song to him and he leaned forward and put his forehead to mine.

The song was "Baby Mine" from Dumbo.

I am so happy I have a picture of that moment...

Now back to our regular program (sorry for hijack : )

I would love to see the prospective from a parent of older children. It would let me know what I have to look forward to as my kids get older!

Small hi jack. Lilaclover, good to see you again, or am I just blind and missed your posts?
That's what happens when one has grade school, high school and college school kids all at home. AND DH leaves for work at 4pm and gets home at 4am.

Now can somebody blog about that?

A blogger with older children would be great! I am sure Mr. Stinky Feet is a great guy but I am WAYYYYYY past that age group.
