April's Best

For the Best of the Blogosphere in April, sweet Sue has asked me to co-host the link-up!

I know! This is a lot of linkies for me this week, isn't it?

But it's cool. I can handle it.

Well, maybe. I mean, my husband is having a minor surgery later today and spending the night in the hospital. So, you know, I may not be the best co-host, but I will really try to check out all the posts. Just give me through the weekend, OK?

That being said, here is my list of great posts I read during the month of April. I think it was a pretty darn good bloggy month.

The Garden of the Evening Star by Lori at Random Ramblings of a SAHM.

Guilty Indulgences. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. by Jamie at South Main Muse

The Yuppie Mom's Guide to Playing the Lottery by Kristin at What She Said

An Open Letter to My Uterus by Susan at Smushyface, Baby

Get Over It by Julia at Elated Exhaustion

I Have My Reasons by Anna at The Mommy Padawan

What's love got to do with it? by Bridget at Twinisms

Extraordinary by Lance at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog

Metamorphosis by Rach at Life Ever Since

If You're Fighting in the Mommy Wars: You've Already Won by Anna at Random Handprints

Blogging is not a hobby. by Nicole at By Word of Mouth Musings

Renew our vows by Jamie at Chosen Chaos

Fuck you, Universe. Or whatever your name is. by Jill at Yeah. Good Times.


Wordless by Amy at Coffee Lovin' Mom who did an amzing job with the A to Z Blogging Challenge in April. Cheers to Amy! I chose this simple post because it's cool, but you should check out the others she wrote all about Europe. Lots of beautiful photos!

AND, if you like to laugh (I sure hope you do), go check out The Sarcasm Goddess' "You Googled What?" posts at For the Love of Writing. They are knee-slapping, tears rolling down your face FU-UN-NY!

If you check out any of these posts, please let them know I sent you!

By the way, I found many of these through the most excellent blogging/writing community known as Yeah Write. That's also worth checking out!


So I think the drill is that you can link up your own list of posts you enjoyed, or your best post YOU wrote in April. Don't be shy; just do it!

Hey, come back here next Tuesday for a very special
Mother's Day blogCard link-up!
What would you like to say to your mom, your MIL, your grandma,
your mom friends, or even yourself?
Say it in a blog post, or "blogCard", and link it up with me!
(Linky will be open from 5/8-5/13 & TGIF for that week will also be part of it.)


  1. What prompted your change in color? I like it! Thanks for the mention love, glad to be on the list.

  4. Jen, thanks for saving my bacon this month. I linked up one of my personal favourite April posts by guest blogger, Cookie's Aunt (my sis). I also linked up another great April post by Kathy of My Dishwasher's Possessed. Her post is a very sweet story of her son's birth.
