I am so glad you blog. I read your blog because I love it. I feel like I can relate to some of your experiences. (family, novell,just being a mom) I love your writting style. I have none. So I read other peoples blogs. So glad you blog.


I started reading your blog because I took your class at BPS on journaling. reading good writing is making me feel like writing better. I was more of a math gal than an English gal.

I like that you cook & have kids & have troubles. I like to think that if we were in the same ward we would be friends.

Thanks for writing. I should write more frequently.


I have been lurking here for a while now and I am so glad you are starting this--I am new to blogging and this will be fun to get mine up and going!! Thanks for this great opportunity Amy!!!

To blog or not to blog. I have been thinking about it lately. Wondering if I will have anything worthwhile to say, what my purpose in blogging would be, opening up my world to an unknown and unseen mass of people - potentially of course. That would be if anyone aside from family ever found it or read anything. I enjoy reading yours, I found it through a BPS class as well. I will play along with your challenge, you may convince me yet. Susan R.


Hi Amy,

I,too, am glad you blog. I so often relate to what you have to say or you are experiencing. We have many things in common and usually when I need some words or a pick me up, you have written on what I am feeling. Thank you, if we lived closer, I'd like to think we could be friends.


Amy, I am constantly astounded by your ability to make the everyday experience transcendent. You are amazing!

(Whereas I seem to specialize in making the transcendent experience pedestrian and slightly ridiculous. Oh well!)

Chalk me up as another who is ever so glad that you blog. And your challenge sounds really awesome too.

That sounds like a fun idea! I think I will join you. Because of all the chaos that is about to take place I might not do it every day, but I will do some! :) Yeah, I agree with you (about our tree) I am happy to not have to worry about it! :) Plus all our friends have trees and grace gets her fair share there! :) I really enjoy reading your blog! I am glad you do it. I know what you mean about either liking it or not. I get harassed about it by some friends too.


Thanks for sharing this. I must think.


I'm hoping I get to finish reading this before little one starts to cry. :) I can't tell you how much your phone call helped Sunday, and how often I refer back to your validation and the idea of a "new normal." You were inspired, my friend. Truly.

loves to you!

Love your ideas Amy! I'm a hit and miss blogger, wrote in my journal for the first time in a long time and remembered why I love doing that. I still worry about the Blogger writing, its more story telling that I do, but I guess I still worry about what if people I know read it and get upset....not sure how real I can be on there. How do you get past that? I don't want to write anything negative and yet then it doesn't feel real to me because I am definitely negative sometimes.........
