Thank Your Fairy Blog Mother Day

(Holiday extended through today)
MommaK over at Petroville has decided that yesterday and today are TYFBM Day. According to her, "You didn't know you had a Fairy Blog Mother? Of course you do. You may have more than one. You very well may even have a male Fairy Blog Mother. Your Fairy Blog Mothers are those people who first inspired you to begin a blog of your own." Sounds good to me.

First is my sister over at On My Mind. She introduced me to the world of blogging before I really knew it was possible for the "average gal" to have her own blog. At first I was kinda like, um, WHY would you do this? But once I followed hers for a while, I could see how cool it would be to communicate with your "real" friends and also make new friends.

Secondly (and I know she has no idea she's on my list because I know she doesn't read me, but that's ok because I read her religiously) is Rockstar Mommy. I can't remember how I came across her, but she just reminded me of myself - a mom who was still cool and still listened to good music and didn't lose her whole personality by becoming a mom. And I loved her writing style - tell-it-like-it-is, thought-provoking, and hysterically funny. She inspired me to be myself on my blog.

And finally is Michele, who we all know and love so dearly. Her blog is a virtual neighborhood of cool people giving their opinions on things, and she facilitates. She has brought so many of you to my blog and has introduced me to your blogs. It always amazes me how many people visit her - and how welcoming she is.

**Now it's your turn. Please post your Fairy Blog Mother list on your blog and tell us how they have inspired you. I can't wait to read all of your lists.

I think Michele is a common thread here...I know I found you through her and I'm glad I did! Happy FGM day!

I'm so happy you joined in the FBM fun. I'm headed to check out the ladies on your list. Have a great day:-)

well, i actually have a guardian blog angel! maybe the fairy blog mother doubles as a blog angel?

Michele said...

I am truly honoured to be listed as one of your Fairy Blog Mothers. You are correct that many cool people visit my blog....of course you are on my list of oh-so-cool bloggers.

Thank you for making me smile. You do that often.

erm, i don't have any fairy blog mothers as i didn't even know about blogs till david suggested setting one up for our wedding to keep people posted on what was going on...

i do have a few bloggers i love though, does that count?

mrsmogul said...

Wow! Michele is very popular. Hmm she's a mystery woman...but i do enjoy her blog!

To be honest, my inspiration doesn't know she was the one who brought me down this path. This person, somewhat of a friend (albeit a long distance one) has a blog that is, shall we say, rather pretentious and I kept thinking "I could do better!" Here we are months later, and I've never told her I started one!
