April Introductions


The main reason that I created Alabama Bloggers was to introduce all of us to each other. I have found such value in the relationships that I've formed with other bloggers around the world, and I wanted the same opportunity to do so within my state. Since there seemed to be no other centralized meeting place, I created one.

I have most definitely built relationships with more Alabama bloggers, and I know a lot of you have done the same. But unfortunately, I don't have time to visit all of you.

As the one year anniversary of this site approaches, I wanted to maximize the original purpose of it and set aside the month of April each year to spotlight individual Alabama bloggers by giving us all a chance to introduce ourselves.

Then at the end of April, I'd like to run a carnival of some sort, like we did at the beginning of Football Season last year. If you have any ideas for a theme for the carnival, let me know!

So, if you'd like to write a post about you and your blog, I would love to run it as a part of April Introductions!

Feel free to write about anything you want, but here are some ideas:

Why do you blog?

What do you blog about?

What is your favorite part of blogging?

Where are your favorite places to go in Alabama?

Where are your favorite places to visit in the Southeast?

Who are some other bloggers that inspire you?

If you'd like to participate, please let me know! Simply email me your post (preferably in html, which you can get by writing it in your blog, then viewing the html and copying and pasting) to rachel@alabamabloggers.com, and I'll schedule it and let you know when it will go up!

If you have any questions, please let me know!

A Simple Life

I've been blogging almost two years, and I post about the thing most important to me... family. A Simple Life is divided into five sections.

Monday - Party/Events
Tuesday - Recipes
Wednesday - Seasonal Traditions
Thursday - Blog Linkage AND Child and Spouse Date Ideas
Friday - Weekend Happenings

In the midst of all the "regular" topics, I blog about my family, my son's OCD, my own panic attacks, my first son leaving for college this past year and surviving a house filled with teenagers and friends.

I have contests, monthly Special Guests and a ton of other "stuff" weekly on A Simple Life.

I started a second blog called Belinda's Project 365 in August of last year on my 48th birthday. I have documented this past year with a picture a day (and will continue to do so until my 49th birthday rolls around). It has been fun recording this year in such a unique way.

I'm learning how to use Alabama Bloggers as I go. It's a great idea.

I would love to be featured as an April guest. It would be an honor.

If you haven't linked up and introduced yourself yet, be sure to go here to do so!
