It's a SITS Blog-a-thon!

Some of you may remember a few weeks ago when I was officially saucy. And some of you may have noticed my cool blog bling:



And hey, many of you I've met through the Secret is in the Sauce.

Well, today over at SITS, it's a blog-a-thon. Everyone is blogging about the fun-ness that is SITS...a great way to find new blogs! And today, win prizes! What has SITS done for me? Well, it's let me find a bunch of fun new blog. Every weekday, they feature a blogger and highlight three of their posts. It's such a neat way to find blog I probably never would have otherwise stumbled upon. Oh, and they made me saucy that one great week, when I got about 50 extra hits a day, some of whom even stuck around and became regular readers. Yay!! Hi new readers who stumbled upon my blog from SITS! It's a fun community, and since the focus is on leaving comments, it's a great way to really get and give some feedback. Comments are yummy.

So my assignment is to list five blogs I've found through SITS. Easy!

First, there's Ronnica's blog, Tale of a Kansas Girl. She's sweet, and funny, and an especially good writer. Thanks to her, and SITS, I'm now writing for her other blog, The Book Nook. I bring down the whole reading level of their blog by reviewing books like Brisingr and Cell, but get to read the reviews of so many other books that sound really interesting.

Melodie over at Me & My Girls is one of my very best commenters. She's a great SITSta! She has a fun blog filled with her beautiful daughters, lots of pictures, plenty of fun, oh, and a very disturbing picture of turtles gettin' busy. Yep, you read that right, and I *know* you're going to have to click that link. I think I may have a new leader in my "outclick" stats!

A Thorn Among Roses is one of my very first SITS finds. I was immediately captured and touched by an adoption post she had written, though she post about far more than that. Another lovely blog, filled with kindness and beautiful pictures.

American in Norway is such a HOOT! She's willing to share embarrassing stories about herself. What more do you need in a blog? Oh, she writes well, takes amazing photos, and is interesting. She was just the featured blogger on SITS about a week ago, so I'm pretty new to reading her blog, but am very much enjoying it.

And I'm going to throw in a bonus mention for Tracey at The Journey. She actually is a card...like, someone gave her that nickname. I had to give that nickname to myself. No one actually told me I was a card, I just announced it to the world. She also gave me some really great potty training advice...exactly what I needed to hear.

I know, that's six blogs instead of five, but I just couldn't help myself :) There are a lot of fun blogs and bloggers I've found through SITS. It really is kind of neat...check it out.

And if you've found me through SITS, THANK YOU!

I love the title of your blog. A full deck is way overrated, if you ask me. :)

my eyes.. MY EYES!!!

(yes.. i clicked on the turtle link)

Tracy P. said...

Oh, that was very sweet! Way to make me feel not so crazy. :-) Hope potty training is going better. I just loved our preschool teachers--I always listened to them, because you could tell they were never surprised by one thing our kids did. Ahh, sweet experience!

Ronnica said...

*blush*Thanks for the linky love! And you're a totally great edition to the Book Nook! I'm afraid I come across as way too nerdy in the books I choose to review...

Melodie said...

Thanks for the shout out!

Sorry about your eyes, Jen. LOL! At least it wasn't a video where you could have heard them, too. Some of those sounds were just plain frightening!
