Monster Likes #21


Every Saturday, it’s Monster Likes time! I list my favorite selection of posts I found throughout bloggy land over the past week.

If one of your posts is listed below and you want the badge, just shoot me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll send you the badge to put on your post!

And now on to the good stuff….

Shell from Things I Can’t Say wrote a post about 5 ways to make new blog friends. If you’re a new blogger or just looking for a way to meet new people, then you’ll definitely want to read this post – it is spot on and awesome advice.

Jessica over at Four Plus an Angel wrote a post about Twitter twins…people on Twitter who like alike and confuse the heck out of everybody. I was lucky enough to be matched up with both Jessica and Nichole, making us a set of Twitter triplets! It’s as much fun to read all the comments as it is to read the post!

Tayarra over at 5 Sharp Lives wrote about struggling feelings of being far from perfect. It’s a brave post, and well worth the read. 

Chocolate Zuchinni Monster Muffins? Yes please! Naomi of Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip also writes over at She Knows and posted this recipe. Nom nom nom!

If you don’t already know Band Back Together, run over there now! It’s an amazing blog full of people dealing with the stuff of everyday life…sharing stories about everything from self improvement to the real dark stuff like rape. It’s a haven and a place to feel not so alone. I’m proud to help there behind the scenes, and want to give the site a MAJOR shout out because everybody can learn something there. 

Have you heard of the Great American Backyard Campout? It’s an annual event that takes place on June 25th and encourages family to spend time together and enjoy the great outdoors. I think we might even try sleeping in the backyard…Tater will love it! You can find info on both the website and their Facebook page.

And last but not least, a big fat thank you to Jho from Witchy Crazy Mommy for passing along the Versatile Blogger Award!

  1. Wow! Thanks so much, Natalie! Thanks again for so much support. I usually only check out Band Back Together When someone retweets.

I would love the badge!
