Talk Live Video Tips

This Fantastic Friday shout out goes to Danielle at I really struggle with vlogging and being on camera yet I know it is the new wave of blogging. Danielle is putting together a series to help all of us learn to be more comfortable with vlogging. Go check her out, she is one of my all time favorite social media gals :)

Talk Live Episode #1

She Just Makes Me Laugh

Rachel at has come up with a great Friday meme:

The purpose is to give a shout out to the most fantastic posts we find. Jenny, The Bloggess, in all her wildly un-politically correct glory is always good for a giggle. I honestly have no idea how she comes up with her hilarious ideas but this one just had me laughing all week. Remember I warned you that it isn’t exactly PC.

I didn’t explain the joke though because that would be insensitive and also I’m used to my jokes failing

Bloggers I Admire

I am hoping to make this more of an ongoing post thing (we’ll see) but I know how hard it is with the tens of thousands of blogs out there to pick through what are good fits for you. So, in an effort to share the wonderful places I draw inspiration from I will try to give you quick looks at some people I think you should take a few minutes to check out:


Lucretia (aka geekmommy)- This was one of those twitter connections that I talked about. We ended up meeting in real life in Feb. and I just fell in love with her (I may mean that literally as I had a dream about her last night, lol) Seriously though, she is honestly one of the most brilliant women I have had the pleasure to get to know. She is just scary smart, funny, and quick witted. Her blog really doesn’t have a ‘niche’ that I see. You get a little bit of everything there (sort of like here) which fits her personality well.

Tara (aka organicsister)- Tara and I are real life friends. While we could not be more different in many ways, it is the theory of opposites attract here for me. Tara is passionate about her life, open and honest, and truly a very kind soul trying to make her way in this crazy world. I admire Tara for her voice, her passions, and how well that all comes through on her blog. This is not a simple blog you can skim through, you need to invest some time here but it is well worth it.

A Cowboy's WifeLori (aka acowboyswife)-I have talked with Lori over twitter for some time now but it wasn’t until I met her last month in Wisconsin that I started reading her blog. Like Tara, Lori’s world is very different from mine. She loves her life in the country and I am a city girl somehow plopped in it. But Lori is a very savvy blogger and I admire how well she has branded herself (pun intended). I fell in love with her when I found her very simple line in her blog: Professional Mom Blogger. That is what she does and this girl does it well. She has seemlessly integrated the art of being an authentic voice with being a profitable blogger.

If I haven’t mentioned you YET it is probably cause I am saving your awesome blog for another addition of “Into the Blogosphere”. Don’t get all twisted up about it just yet :P

Surely you have some bloggers you admire, leave their link below or if you want to give me more details, leave me a comment. Just please don’t link to your own site ’cause, well, yeah, that is kinda lame of you.
