The Final Affiliate Friday of 2009: Lore

I met Loren in an elevator somewhere between the 8th floor and the lobby at the Sheraton in Chicago during BlogHer ’09. What struck me about Loren right off the bat was not so much that she was alone at this insane convention with all kinds of people who knew each other but that she was totally cool and relaxed about it. She’s the kind of chick who emanates that vibe that she totally knows who she is. And I love that. And then I started reading her blog, “Dude, Where am I?” and I was all, “Okay, this is one unique voice with a commitment...

Affiliate Friday: Karrie McAllister on M

Before I introduce our Featured Affiliate, I must tell you that our DVD Giveaway Extravanganza is still going on and you can still win awesome titles like “Night at the Museum 2” and “Ice Age 3.” So click here and enter. Chances are very good that you will win something. The blogospshere never ceases to amaze me with the quality of writing I can happen upon out of nowhere. That is exactly how I felt when I happened upon Karrie, our featured affiliate, who is a “Mother, Writer, and Dirt-Lover.” She, like other affiliates, somehow...

Affiliate Friday On Profanity: WhereR

For me, it’s been pretty rare to happen upon a mommy blog, read it for the first time, and think “Wow, that is one clear, strong voice.” But that’s what I thought the first time I read Cristin of Tiptoeing through the Tulips. Cristin is a mom of a CDH kid, a potentially life-threatening condition that my dear friend Karen faced when her daughter was born with CDH 4 years ago, and if you want to see mama strength in action, check in on Cristin any day of the week. She does NOT beat around the bush, she never holds back, and sometimes you get more...

Affiliate Friday: Swirl Girl on A Big Wo

Swirl Girl from Swirl Girl’s Pearls lives not far from me. She’s basically a Los Angeleno although maybe she doesn’t consider herself one. I’m not sure. I know there is only about a 30-40 minute drive that separates us and yet the only place we have connected as of yet is through our blogs. The blogosphere’s cool like that. Hopefully we’ll share a drink together sometime soon. For now, she is sharing a bit of her heart with us in this Affiliate Friday post. It’s a different tone than her usual fare but she always speaks straight...

Affiliate Friday: Under the Influence on

There are a few blogs that I actually remember reading for the first time and thinking, “Wow. I totally relate to this chick.” And that is how I felt when I read Jo from the infamous Under the Influence. She wrote about her love for prescription painkillers and what can I say? I love ’em too. I remember being sent home with Percocet after having my first kid as a true highlight. I’m actually not sure what I was more in love with – my newborn baby girl or my pain meds. Okay, I’m exaggerating. I think. Anyway – Jo is always...

Affiliate Friday: Heather of the EO on B

Happy Friday! And it’s a happy one indeed…. I am super psyched to kick-off MWOB’s brand new feature called “Affiliate Friday” where we feature a blogger who is a devoted affiliate of Moms without Blogs and who supports our mission out here in the blogosphere. We’re a virtual community of kindred spirits and in an effort to actually get to know each other a little more, “Affiliate Friday” was born. Today’s first affiliate voice comes from a woman and writer I simply adore. I totally remember when I first read her a...
