Blog Buddies

Dear Blogo-Buds,

I want to introduce you to two awesome little blogs you won't want to miss out on. The first is called Crib Notes, which is not only a blog, but a column in the New Braunfels (Can you say Octoberfest?) Herald-Zeitung. My good friend Winter, the author and my fantabulous critique partner, is a real hoot (that's Texas speak for "quirky and hysterical"). You will definitely get a kick out of her wry take on life and motherhood from her unique perspective. Check her out and show her the same crazy blogophilia (that's linky love) you've shown me.
The second blog is called Midlife Jobhunter. My good friend Julie is on the hunt for a new career. Between lazing around her lake house and raising four boys (oops, one of those is her husband!), she also writes essays and has been published a time or twenty. Just as soon as she finishes her literary manuscript (and I finish my mainstream masterpiece), we'll all be scratching out a living on the bestseller lists. HA! But first she has to serve time doin' the 9-to-5.

Enjoy, y'all!

It is Saturday. WHile most bloggers take a blog break, this is when I have the time to read blogs and check out new ones. So OK.

Kristina P. said...

I will have to check them out! Thanks!

Since it's the weekend and I have more time to spend on blogs then during the week, I will have to check these out...thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend!

FYI, you can’t shake me that easily. I am fiercely loyal; to a fault. I had read Midlife job hunter and do find the images quite impressive. I will check out the other one… but I kept finding myself reading your old blogs since Wednesday. After WTF Wednesday, I kept waiting for Shit Sure Happens on Thursday, and Shit gets deeper by Friday. RRRough week.

I found you through Linda Lou's blog, and it's a damn good thing I did! You're funny, which is my main criteria for blogalicious buds. That, and the fact that you drink. Stop on by and check out my site - I have a hunch you might you like it. (I'm working on a humorous murder mystery, so I'm all about "hunches.");-)

Amy said...

You're a blog pimp!! I guess that makes me a blog whore because I checked them out. I feel so...dirty.

Jocelyn said...

Thanks for the tips; I love recs.

Thanks, even more, for leaving the loveliest commentn ever on my blog. I mean, your sugar glider was HUNGRY, babes. Yet you read on. You absolutely made my day.

Jill said...

I will be sure to head over to both of their blogs. Networking is a great thing here in blogland! That's how I meet all these wonderful people!
