Monster Likes #6


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.

So here are my favorite posts of the past week:

I’ll admit…this list is limited…I’m still trying to work the kinks out of trying to juggle two jobs, three kids, a husband, and a blog out. It’s harder than I thought!

Melanie from Bronx To Boulder talks about trying to fit into the cool crowd of bloggers…this is a must read!

Gigi over at KludgyMom talks about feelings of blogger inadequacy…read it and know that if you’re feeling that way, your not alone. Successful bloggers feel the same way sometimes, too.

Hmmm….am I maybe feeling some inadequacy with my blog? I didn’t realize until now that 2 of the 4 blogs I picked were about feeling insecure with blogging!

New to Twitter? Still trying to figure it out? If you are a blogger and you don’t tweet, you are missing out on a ton of fun AND potential traffic. Read KLZ’s Twitter tips…believe me, they’ll help the newbies – and some of you oldies but goodies (when it comes to tweeting, I mean!) might find a tip or two yourselves!

Lastly, my friend Nichole at In These Small Moments wrote one of the most powerful and beautifully written pieces I’ve read in a long time. And it’s close to my heart, so it continues to haunt me.

And because I still can’t believe how incredible this story is, if you missed my post on Friday about my cousin’s attempt to find his birth mother on Facebook, you might want to read it. It’s a true testament to the power of social media.

One more thing…if you are a huge fan of Celebrity Apprentice like I am, you might want to check out the post I wrote over at about when the new season is premiering and who the new cast is!

And so it goes…


  1. Thank you so much for featuring me here, Natalie.
    It took me a long time to feel ready to post my piece, but your words helped me to reach a point where I could.

  4. Thanks gal! Feel like we never get to talk anymore with the 5 kids and 6 jobs between us :) I'm going to go read up about Celeb Apprentice. You know I'm a reality show whore!
