I stumbled on SITS when they were just starting to get people to sign up for an opportunity to be their featured blogger of the day (which anyone can do, and they add new people all the time). They were talking about being "saucy", and it took me awhile to sign up, because I wasn't sure I could deliver the goods. But I discovered that while they are all about some fun, the real point of the deal is to build community and a provide a way for bloggers to encourage and support each other, whatever their style. (Within reason...which I really appreciate!)
Let me introduce you to a few of the many bloggers I've found inspiring, either on their SITS day or on mine. Go check them out to see what I mean!
Melissa at Stretch Marks had me at hello. Oh my gosh. No one can make me laugh and cry in the same sentence like this girl. Hilarious! And deep. What a package! My favorite is her Foxhole series. Go to the Grand Finale, but follow the links to read parts 1, 2 and 3 first. Kleenex required. Goosebumps guaranteed.
Emily at Little Momma and Company has SO many cute ideas of things (especially foods) to make with kids. The recipe I need to remember to try THIS WEEK is her mini-caramel apples. There are just SO many things right about this blog!
Katy Lin at The Great Adventure started a Friday tradition called My Husband Rocks! It encourages other wives to pause weekly to think about what they appreciate about the man they married, and then to write about it in his honor. Imagine how the world would be different if every wife made a point of publicly appreciating her husband every week!
Veggie Mom over at Eat Your Veggies is way too much fun. She is my next-state neighbor, and we have a good time bantering back and forth over the outcomes of the football games. I would not have believed I would actually frequent a blog that has the sale of a product at the heart of it, but she kept coming by and making me laugh. Uncle Lynn, Aunt Julie and the others seem practically like family now. Kind of. I happened to stop by there on my lucky day, and won me some Pop'rs--yum yum!
Michelle at Outnumbered is a young mom whose blog is a fabulous reality check for all of us. She cracks me up. I got hooked when I read about the loaner she got when her Tahoe was in the shop. It was a Ford Fusion, which, according to Michelle, was "like  this big". Yes, she is always that descriptive!
Stefanie at Because I Pause first got my attention when a featured blogger had a virtual picnic and asked all of us what we'd bring. Stefanie mentioned a food item, and also "a big basket that everyone can put their phones, iPods and other handhelds in until it's time to leave!" She knows her audience, and how to make sure she's living real life to the fullest.
There are so many more, some of whom I've mentioned before...but you would probably have more fun going over to SITS yourself and checking out the bloggers you find who look interesting to you. Just do it. You might
