The Good List

Being a "mom-blogger" is certainly a mixed bag. There are good impressions, and not-so-good impressions left on the rest of the world, blogging or otherwise. Just like any community, there are people you hang with, and people you make sure you give a wide berth. I thought I'd fill you in on some of the neato kids that I meet on the smoking patio (even though I don't think any of us actually smoke...)

This list must start with all of my super-awesome Mums pals, Naomi (@superdumb), Anna (@annaholler), and Amy (@amysphere)(now of ParentSphere), and Lisa (who doesn't work with us anymore, and doesn't blog much, but is still a total stud).

I also love these fine people. When I read their words, I get something from it. None of them are rude or looking for a fight. They are just moms who write & do it well. They are kind, funny, sweet & cool, and I think you should love them all too: The Charlie, Stephanie, Beth, Sarah, Erin, Erin (apparently people named Erin are groovy), Meagan Francis, Diane (who will be a mama one day), Ashlee (who also doesn't blog much, but is "the awesome"), and Erika.

I am sure that I am missing people, but I'm trying to do this in a hurry, because Elliott wants to watch "Moving Target"...uh, help me. :) If I have forgotten you, please call me a jerk & tell me, please!

I hope you'll find these folks as pleasant, readable, and lovable as I do.

People named Erin are pretty awesome! With all the snarkiness that's been going around the blog world lately, this is refreshing to see and so sweet. We need to get Ashlee back to blogging... I miss her words!

You are so sweet. It's wonderful to be included in a good list. There is just too much ugliness these days online.


Sarah Viola said...

Shucks, Laura. Thank you.

When are you going to come to Chicago?

Naomi said...

Aww, back at you, pal!

I just saw this for the first time (because I'm a really caring friend who often checks in on your personal blog!...:( )

I love you. As always.

And... I love that you use the word "stud" to describe people.
