LOL Sounds familiar. Don't give up on the children's book though. Chicken Soup for the Soul was rejected 144 times before a publisher accepted it. It happens in all genres. There are always other publishers. I can see the chick lit working though.

Karen..thank you again.  I have taken some tips from your website, it's been very helpful.  I wrote a children's book as well (came very close to publishing, but alas after editing 3x for the publisher, they decided not to use it...sigh).  Now working on a chick lit book, I am very new to this genre but the voice is very similar to that of the blog...again, thanks for your encouragement and the tweet!!!!

Rachel, I visited your blog and can see why you were chosen. Your blog is interesting, warm, and funny.

I tweeted your 8/13 post.

Karen...thank you so much for your congrats.  Funny, I don't really know a lot about blogging, I still can't figure out the whole blog hop thing...and yet somehow I have my picture (albeit a small thumbnail shot) in a magazine regardig blogging.

There is no excuse for mommy blogs or family oriented posts to include that profanity. It is offensive and shows a lack of vocabulary, don't you think?

Why all the f-bombs on blogs these days?

Well, the Family and Parenting Blog person already changed her mind - so now I need someone for that blog again.  And now I'm not sure about the Career and Personal Growth person. 


All the information is here: for anyone who is interested.
