Blogging Pros & Cons

   I have now been blogging for 6 months & I have learned A LOT.  I thought today I would just mention a few PROS & CONS.  An obvious PRO is GIVEAWAYS.  I haven't even entered that many but I have been REALLY LUCKY!  I mean Blessed :)    
   Cheryl from ZanyMayd sent me a very sweet package which I had the best time opening!  And now I have little pieces of her all throughout my house!




My favorite is this little dish!
She was sooo sweet & thought of Annie too! 
Annie was very happy! 
And Kate was thrilled to see her name on a package!
Thank you soooo much Cheryl!  It was all too perfect!

Another PRO is that I have been so much better about taking pictures of my family!  I'll put up some of Rocco since he too often gets left out :)  I have a feeling you'll be hearing about him a lot more soon as he starts walking.

I would never have so many memories recorded if it weren't for doing this!!!


Now for a few CONS

When you sit at the computer for 2 minutes in the middle of the day because you think everything is under control & you just HAVE to see today's Bluebird Notes...you might arise to find this:
Your brand new roll of wax paper rolled around room to room.  I suppose it could be a PRO if you were lost & needed to follow it home (as long as you are only 30 feet away from home.)

Yes Koralee...this one is your fault, well....yours & Bo's :)


Or if you sit a little too long...you might look in the mirror later in the day & wonder:

How long has that Barbie shirt been on my head & how did it get there?
And then you vaugely remember that when you were blogging your sweet, sweet daughter tapped you on the head & gave you a kiss, "Hi mom!" 

But the best PRO of all?
YOU!!!

Hi Libby! Your stories make my day! Rocco is such a beautiful baby! Won't it be extra fun when him and Bo team up on Bos crazy ideas?;) I was thinking that Annie being the crafter that she is was maybe just trying out a new hair piece design on her beautiful mom! Thanks for starting my day off with a smile! Have a blessed Easter and have another fun day, Theresa

Hi Libbie,

I third the comment left by my eldest sister Natasha, and second the comment left by my second eldest sister Stacey. Funny that they were talking about you over lunch whilst my husband and I were discussing your wonderful blog and kind comments at dinner.

It just goes to show - great minds think alike. Your blog is wonderful! I love popping over for a visit. Your posts are always so fresh, honest and inspiring. Can't wait to read more and thank you sooooooo much for your positive feedback.

Hi Libbie,

I adore you! You always bring a big smile to my face. You are one lucky lady, love all your giveaway goodies and your Annie and Rocco are so cute!

Bwahahaha! Love the wax paper and Barbie doll clothes in your hair...too funny! You have this wonderful "journal" that you can keep track of events in your life along with wonderful pictures that you can look back on and share with your kids...doesn't get better than that.

Blog buddies are pretty awesome too; can you even imagine life without them now? Glad our paths crossed here in blog land...next I want to be sitting on the bleachers’ with you watching Kate kick some football butt!

Love and hugs,
Karyn

Me....bunny said...

When I'm cooking or baking something I get on the computer and usually burn it or it comes out to crispy. I'm usually a good cook, but since my blog....well, let's just say I need timers all over the house...lol

tootles,

Shirley said...

Hi Libbie, I came to visit and say thank you for becoming one of my blog followers. I enjoyed your post so very much and had a chuckle. Your little ones are adorable and can be so much fun. They grow up in a big hurry. I can relate to being in the middle of sisters. I have three sisters one older and two younger. Have a wonderful Easter

Catherine said...

Oh Libbie ~ such a fun and cute post! Indeed... time can certainly slip away from us and things can go awry when we are lost in all the beaufitul blogs out in blog land!

Hope you and your sweet family have a wonderful Easter!

Sweet sister Libbie you are just priceless....love always reading about you guys. Boy is Rocco getting big or what...your babies are just too precious..oh how I wish I lived close to you guys so I could babysit...well I guess when they get older you can send them to Aunt Maggie for the summer on the farm in Texas...
Your best pro for all of us
Love
Maggie

koralee said...

Oh Libbie...you are the sweetest ever!!! Thank you for the lovely mention of my blog...I really do not deserve your kind and heartwarming words. I so agree with you there are lots of pros and cons in this blogging world. Your sweet sweet images always make me smile...your children are adorable. Your Rocco is full of personality and Annie is one of the sweetest little girls I have ever seen {and I am a grade one teacher...oh I have lots of sweeties but your Annie does win an award for adorable....that huge smile of hers!}
Sending you many hugs for a blessed Easter. xoxo

Oh my, Libbie...you and I could share sooo many stories. I am the mother of 4 children...23, 20, 15 and 2 years!!! I can totally appreciate the wax paper, the barbie clothes in the hair, etc, etc, etc. I am also new to blogging...only about a month or so. My sister got me started....
I am sure I will be following you so that I know I am not alone with my daily happenings with my 2 year old.
Enjoy, Dana @ Madelines Memory
