Welcome to the book blogger hop! Please scroll down and enter my birthday contest. It is for a fabulous magazine about books and women's words. The odds are definitely in your favor! Also consider joining the Moby Dick reading Challenge. We are in our third week and would love to have more bloggers join. I am afraid that the big, bad, whale has scared all potential readers away but not to worry, I am still afloat in my rickety ole ship. I may have to have a shot of tequila soon but for now, I think I will survive without alcohol.
Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books has a new twist at the hop and wants the bloggers to answer a question. This week's question is: Tell us your NAME and WHY YOU STARTED BLOGGING?
My name is Laura and I started blogging for several reasons. This year has been a very hard year for my family. My children both have ADHD and some of the mental illnesses that go along with it. My son became very depressed and had to go into crisis intervention twice. My husband and dog were also very sick at the beginning of the year so by February I thought that I was either going to have a nervous breakdown or have to quit my job as a teacher. I did neither and began blogging for stress relief. I love reading and books and wrote my master's thesis on the topic and so it was a easy fit. I love blogging and have learned a ton in the last 5 months. Thanks to everyone who reads my blog and finds what I have to say valuable.
PS. Things are getting better. Everyone, including momma, is getting what they need to be happy.
