Come over to my website and visit my photos of closing day at our favorite ski mountain. Totally surreal and crazy

It is so exciting to watch the progression for all of us over here at our group.

Meagan, I do have a fan page on FB and I welcome all of you to become a member of my club. I do feel that it is a great way to bring traffic to your site, especially with friends who don't necessarily understand that by visiting my site they are truly supporting my novel.

All of this social networking truly provides an excellent platform for your book and it is the first thing that Publishers ask for.

CJ - thanks for your comment. I agree that it can all be a little too much at times. Hang in there!

Heather, such exciting things are going on for you! I can see that you are hitting the pavement hard to get your writing out there and you are being well rewarded for your efforts.

Your column was a great introduction to the reality of the roller coaster that you are on. I thought it was very well written and gave all of us a true glimpse into the life of a military wife. I look forward to more.

Swati, does this mean that you get to go to Disney World? I'll have to check out your guide as I'm feeling terribly guilty that I have never taken my kids there.

Keep reading and writing, as will I!

Heather...congrats on the news! That is awesome...and I will go vote soon. I have some catching up to do on reading and writing. Self-assigned homework! Question for you any of you have fan pages on facebook? I am not sure why I am trying to do that, but I know the more noise I make, the better my chances of building up a following by the time my novel is done might be. In case you are on facebook and you want to fan me (it makes me sound like I am on fire or something!) fan page

I am just spreading a really large net at this point. If any of you have tried this and failed miserably...that would be good to know too.

Hope to catch up with each of you soon!

Heather - Congrats on the column at blue Star families - I really enjoyed your 1st post...I just cannot imagine how you do it. We just returned from DC (we went for spring break) and I totally lost any form of composure at Arlington Nat'l. In fact, all of the memorials are so moving. I need to get involved in some kind of program where you send thank you's to soldiers (so do tell if you know of any).

I am WAY behind on reading case you are planning a trip to Disney, my last post is a review of a terrific Disney guidebook.

Hello all,

Heather - congrats - I will get to voting!

Stefanie- Congrats..I love what youhave accomplished because you certainly chose to make your life happen!

Jillian - great post - the coming back early...too funny sounds just like me.

You guys have been wonderfully supportive, and I must admit, this week was a little tough. Part of it is because ALL three of my little ones have been with me for over a week (SIGH). But I do feel that the writing has really tapped into and stirred some of those buried emotions. Not in a bad way, but you guys know how it can feel it kinda churning around.
My husband is dodging me a bit. I think he can see it in my eyes that I am a little touchy.

Anyhoo, just wanted to let you all know, that your blogs, your thoughts and comments have greatly impacted me.

Hey guys, please check out my blog today. I am featured in J'adore Magazine's 2010 Sports Edition w/Floyd Mayweather Jr. on the cover.

Hi All!
I have 2 happy bits of news I'd love to share with you. First, I made it to the top 5 of the MILbloggie awards, which put me through to the voting stage. If you have a minute, I'd love for you to vote for me (you have to register but I know a few of you already have): (I'm in the military spouse category.) Thanks!

Second, I was recently offered a position as a weekly columnist with Blue Star Families (it's an organization for military family). I'll be writing about the ups and downs of being married to a deployed service member, and my first post went up yesterday!

Thanks for all your support! Hope everyone had a happy Easter!

Hello! I am in the process of writing my first novel, very excited but very nervous.
Comment by Shelina Ishani on April 2, 2010 at 4:43pm
Shauni, check the web for a list of illustrators for your book. In this economy you are bound to find one for cheap. I have done the self publishing thing and would highly encourage it. I used create space and was very satisfied with them. You can check out all my books as slide shows on my site at

Hi All!
Terri--Welcome to MBC! I'm your newest follower and I look forward to reading more about it. I checked out that website and realized I have been there before, but it's been awhile. So thanks for the reminder!

Alexandra--I'm your newest follower too! I LOVE your subtitle that you can't use your friends as therapists forever. So true! Looking forward to reading more.

Meagan, Peryl, and Jillian--Thank you so much for the nominations and the kind words! As always, I am so thankful to be a part of this group.

I'm off to read more of your blog posts! Have a great Easter weekend everyone!

Is Your Man Loyal Or A Cheater?

Whenever two people form a relationship, there are moments when one might believe the other is cheating on them. Whether it's out of insecurity or there are signs that just don't seem right, it is painful and betraying. The good news, there are also signs that strongly suggest your man is not running around. …

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
