The Big Bad Blog Block Bash

Welcome to the blog party chez moi. 5 minutes for mom is hosting a big blog party. You link up to it and everyone hops around, like a big progressive dinner or something. SO, come on in, pull up a chair and have some fun here at my cyber house. Have some Black Bottom Pie and look at some of my pictures and videos. I started this blog last August by accident almost. I thought blogs were something some journalists did. I was busy living in a world of Transformers, Legos and clogged toilets so I had no idea what was going on out in the world. Then my niece announced she was going to stop e-mailing and just start a blog. I thought it was cool and looked like fun. I thought I needed to ask her how to set one up. Then I heard someone else had a blog and I thought, what the heck is this? I googled “blogspot” and found out all this fun stuff I could do, which sounded cool and so I filled in the blanks and the next thing I knew, I had a blog. No forethought really whatsoever, just started this thing on a whim. I had been saving e-mails I sent my family for years, so my plan was to kick it up a notch and preserve the memories on the internet, old and new, where supposedly they won’t get lost; except no one could allay my fears about losing this space. I almost immediately discovered that I could also socialize here. What fun! Really truly hadn’t been out much in years, so this probably saved my sanity. It has been a blast getting to know some neat people from all over! Feel free to wander around my spot and make yourself at home. It’s a nice comfy disorganized mess, because real life is too and must be attended to first: real life includes Papi, Enigma(16), Gigio(9), Carino(nearly 9), Thing 1 and Thing 2 (both soon to be 6) we are a picture postcard of ADD and crazy things go on here. Hope you enjoy yourself, then, when you’re ready to leave: Y’all come back now, y’hear?

Hi there. I love your childhood photo and the comment underneath. You're quite witty. It made me smile.

Have fun at the parties. Please stop by and say hi.

Lisa said...

Very cute picture on your about me. Would love for you to stop by my blog party. I have a guessing game going on. :-)

I had no idea what I was doing when I started my blog either, now I'm addicted.

I, for one, am glad you started this blog. I remember that Tristi Pinkston was the one who got me started . . . in fact, she got a whole bunch of us authors started and now we've taken off and just gone crazy with it!

I haven't been by in a while. I love ADD and Crazy, by the way!

I didn't do the party thing (just because I didn't really understand it). You know, being new to the blog thing.

Have a good night. Theresa
