Freelance for Hire


With so many talented bloggers out there, I am sure there are some that can relate to Dominique - a freelance writer from NYC.

In her newest blog, you can follow her on her journey to establish herself as a freelance writer.

Wow! Look at all her talents...

"I am the mastermind behind Searhing for Freelance Success- a publishing/freelancing focused blog, the freelance editor working with ACT, the founder and organizer of Mommy Writers, as well as the facilitator of the Mommy Writers free online writing workshops, the Brooklyn Motherhood Examiner, and the creator and editor ofBalancing Act - a web zine written for women writers, by women writers.
Did I forget to mention that I have also contributed guest posts to different online blogs, including Half of a Duo, Raising a Duo and Emma Lai Writes?"

Writing is one of those things that I have never had skill in. Maybe that why I like this blog... I can just tell you all what I think and don't have to worry about my grammatical skills. Ha! I know so many of you are wonderful writers though - I read so many of your fabulous blogs all the time and wish I had some writing talent.

Maybe you enjoy writing?
Maybe you sometimes feel stuck with your writing?
Check our Paralysis for some tips on how to avoid it and even how to prevent it.

Ooo... How about some FREE CLASSES? Maybe that is what I need...

Sweeter Homes



May I introduce you to Sweeter Homes

Come take a peek at the different homes she highlights to give you decorating inspiration, architectural ideas, or just to ooo and aaahhh at.

As I have mentioned before - us blabbers live in the desert and can't even imagine having a Christmas tree with a view of the water! Amazing! Oh... to have a beach house at Christmas...


This dining room picture is from a Before and After post featuring an apartment. I love to drool at pictures of large fabulous homes but I really enjoyed this post highlighting a small apartment because that is really closer to the size of my own home - gotta keep myself grounded every once in a while.

How cool is this chair? And if only I could be that organized with my shoes...
In a world without little kid fingerprints and dirty hands... this would be amazing!

Doesn't this breakfast nook just want to make you sit down and stay for a while?

Dreamgirl will also post pictures of the inside of celebrity homes that are for sale! I guess I am very nosey because I am so intrigued by these posts!
This one is Whoopi's...


I hope you enjoy Sweeter Homes as much as I do! Check it out and leave some comment love for Dreamgirl. And while you are at it, make sure to tell her you found her here!

Crockpot 365


Stephanie O'Dea took her New Year's Resolution in 2008 very seriously.
She decided that she was going to use her crockpot EVERY DAY and post the recipes along with pictures! Sounds like a lot of work to me!

She ended up with so many yummy recipes and the great thing about the crock pot it how easy it can be... check out this 3 Packet Pot Roast. 3 packets? Even I can do that.

I love that she was honest about her flops... not everything turns out good.

It is amazing how creative she gets! I would have no idea that you can make YOGURT in a crock pot!!! Seriously?!?
Here is some proof for you...


She has even recently come out with a book... looks like it would make a great Christmas gift!
You can buy it HERE on Amazon.com
This blog is worth a peek! Don't forget to leave her some comment love and say HELLO from Blabbing About Blogs!

English Muse


Just to give you a glimpse into what this blog encompasses I'll quote her directly...

"Hello...
I'm a contributing editor at the Huffington Post and a freelance writer covering Hollywood. Previously, I was a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times. Welcome to the English Muse, my personal blog"

This blog is not afraid to tackle the hard topics and ask the hard questions. This blog is vulnerable, current, and captures so much beauty.

Here's a picture of the supermodel Daul Kim who committed suicide this past week. Instead of ignoring this the question was asked "Is the modeling world to harsh?" Should that amount of pressure be put on anyone?

Check it out!


Remember that vulnerability I was talking about? This post is just genuine and true. This picture completely captured the essence of the post and portrayed the defeated feelings she felt. There's something to be said about someone willing to be honest about the good times and the bad!

We all could use a little vulnerability in our lives. Thank you for leading by example!

THE imPERFECT HOUSEWIFE



This wonderful blogger is a wife and mom of 3 young adults.

Her honesty is endearing and makes you feel like a friend from the moment you start reading.


Here's some real life humor she shares about
the world of texting and having an 18 year old daughter that I am sure you all will be able to relate to in one way or another.


Oooooo! I cannot wait to try this recipe! Its how to make Wanna be Thin Mints! I don't know about any of you out there but I have seriously thought about buying enough Thin Mints during Girl Scout Cookie Season (should that be an official holiday?) to keep in my freezer the entire year. Though, in all honesty, they probably wouldn't last all year no matter how hard I tried.
Thank you imPerfect Housewife for this recipe!

Be sure to head over to her blog to check it out. While you are there, don't forget to leave her some love and tell her HI from Blabbing About Blogs!

A New Simple Something

A New Simple Something is exquisitely simple! You never know what she's going to give you but I can guarantee you won't be disappointed.
Here are some of her fabulous photos. Isn't she talented?

My favorite post on her entire blog includes some of her pictures with a beautiful poem that I had to include in order for you to truly get what draws me to this blog.




In a room as big as loneliness
my heart
which is as big as love
looks at the simple pretexts of its happiness
at the beautiful decay of flowers in the vase
at the sapling you planted in our garden
and the song of canaries
which sing to the size of a window.
Another Birth by Forough Farrokhzad
