Is Gambling a Man's Thing? We Dare to Disagree

To be a professional gambler, you need to be a man - at least this is what many media outlets and society as a whole are trying to tell us. Of course, men are seen as being risk-takers but this doesn't necessarily translate into them being the only gender to enjoy playing casino games. Stats show that as many women enjoy a few spins on a Royal Vegas slot machine than…

Poetry Friday sounds fun... looking forward to tomorrow. I have a picky eater as well! Enjoyed your blog, very refreshing :)
Love, love, loved your blog! Look forward to reading it daily:)
I have only been blogging since January of this year and I stil haven't got a 'niche'. I just write when and what I want.

feel free to check it out:
What a fun blog! I have added you as a blog I follow!
My primary blog is, and I primarily blog about my life with my four tiny kids! I include funny anecdotes, sweet sayings, pictures of the kids, "how tos" on preschool crafts we're doing and sometimes random opinions on various subjects.

I try to blog a few times a week although there are lapses (did I mention I have 4 small kids). Imagine lapsing a bit on the blog!

Mostly my family and friends visit my blog...I haven't set up a traffic thing to see if anyone else is visiting!

I do have a 2nd blog at to feature my newest stationery products, giveaways, etc.
My blog is Papertree -, and I blog about my family, my cat, me, my friends and any creation that I come up with - I'm a scrapbooker, alterer, designer and paper crafter. I primarily set up my blog so my extended family could keep in touch with us - it's grown over the past couple of years and now I blog every day. I love finding and meeting new bloggers! RMS Snowdrop
I started blogging about 2 weight loss challenges I'd joined and then the rest of my life kinda crept in.
I write 5-7 posts a week. I try to write one every day but sometimes life gets in the way!!
Yes, I do get visitors other than friends and family. I recently joined a site for bloggers in my city and have picked up some followers from there. Others have happened onto my blog after Googling adoption and Trisomy 18.
It's an outlet for me, a way to get what's locked up inside of me out. Whatever is going on in my life at the time is usually what winds up in my blog for the day. Some posts are informative, some are funny, and some require a box of tissues. It's much cheaper than therapy!!
my blog is
My blog is combination of posts about raising my 6 year old adopted daughter in NYC and interesting pop cultural/business stories that interest me and hopefully my readers. I started the blog after I was laid from Citigroup, yes that Citigroup. I miss the paycheck but not the company.

I write 1-3 posts a day with no set schedule. (I need one) and get about 60-100 visitors/day. My family and friends for the most part do NOT visit my blog.

Look forward to going through this forum discussion. Its good way to learn about other peoples blogs.
Hello everyone!! I am trying to get the feel of this site and this is officially my first post! yay! ;)

My name is Leila aka Miss LaLa (because almost all kids end up calling me that!) and I am a novice blogger. I've been managing online forums and writing for years so you would think blogging is a natural progression, however, I just never made time for it! After many many many friends and family have encouraged (harassed) me to apply my ambition towards blogging I finally gave in. I'm still trying to figure it all out.

My first projects have to do with my businesses. This is the one I am primarily focusing on:

I'm a single Mom and my two amazing children are my world, I am in the process of launching my home child care again after taking a few years off. Both of my kids have severe food allergies and our lives are by far the quintessential definition of family... but we are definitely a happy one! I will be writing about our life, craft ideas, recipes, activities with kids, my program. My goal is to provide a positive perspective on child care providers, while helping other providers with resources and ideas as well as give families inspiration! I plan on writing at a minimum of twice per week.

Right now I only have friends and family visiting my site because it is so new.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and browsing your blogs! Thanks!
My blog is

I blog about whole living with style and my experiences in changing to more natural lifestyle without giving up syle.
I'm very concerned about the overall amount of toxins and chemicals that our bodies are exposed to in our daily lives that we don't really know anything about - and ways to minimize that exposure - without giving up my lipstick!

I expect to post daily, but at the moment I'm posting 2-3 times a day... I have a lot of posts to get off my brain.
About 60-70% of my visitors are from searches.
I just started blogging last month for the very first time. I blog life , the pursuit of happiness, the journey of a SAHM and other random thoughts that swirl in my head. here is my link...

I blog about once a day and I have not sent out a link to friends and family so the little traffic I have is other bloggers or curious humans on the net.
I love reading blogs and I hope to accumulate a collection of blogs that I enjoy reading and hope that people who like my blog choose to read what I write.
Ok now I am off to check all the neat sounding blogs on this thread.
glad to meet ya' and here i am...

- why i chose that topic to blog about: maintenance of sanity
- how many posts per week: varies depending on the voices in my head...2-4
- other visitors? yes. been recognized by blogher (carry their ads too) and mom logic.
- i started blogging about a year ago so i'm a newbie. i left writing five years ago and wanted to fine-tune my craft after letting it sit dormant for so long. with two children under five, motherhood is the all-encompassing, dominant force in my life these days. so, i started the blog about what I (don't) know best. i soon discovered the amazing power of being able to put my feelings, frustrations, daily trials, etc on paper. Pretty soon people I didn't know (but do now) started reading. I love my little blog family now and it's something I look forward to doing each week. Sometimes I wonder if I'm sharing too much, but then I get a comment from the dark depths of cyberpspace that says, "Thank you. I was feeling the same thing." I smile. Every single time.
