Say It Forward – Week 8

Say It Forward

Say It Forward – Carnival of Loyal Commenters is a new weekly carnival at 5 Minutes for where bloggers feature their loyal commenters!

To read more about how to participate in Say It Forward and to get the button codes, click here.

And make sure you visit the links in the Mr. Linky here every Friday. These are the FUN blogging folk YOU want to be friends with. Go to THEIR sites. Read THEIR blogs. And of course, leave COMMENTS.

Oh – we can just see the friendships forming already… It is a beautiful thing!

Week 8 — Featured Commenter:

This week’s loyal commenter is Rachel from Grasping for Objectivity.

Rachel is a brilliantly witty writer who chronicles daily life with a depth of humor that is both refreshing and challenging.  It would be wonderful if everyone was able to see the funny in life, rather than dwelling on the hard.  And, I have to say, Rachel brings the funny.

Whether she’s talking about avoiding the dreaded Long Butt associated with Mom Jeans or coming up with a new phrase to teach her daughter, Rachel’s posts will have you rolling.  Her writing style is simple, fast paced and easy to read. 

But there is more to Rachel than her humor.  She is a deep thinker and she has wonderful insights to share with her readers as well.  In essence, Rachel is a great writer and Grasping for Objectivity is a well-rounded blog.  It is definately worth adding to your daily reader.

Rachel describes herself as “a stay at home mom (while doing accounting part time for two different companies from home because I really LOVE numbers) married to the man of my dreams. I have a wonderful 2 year old daughter, Ali, who keeps me on my toes! “

Thank you, Rachel, for giving your readers a good laugh and for making us ponder not only the mundane, but the deeper issues that life presents. And, of course, for being such a loyal commenter here at 5 Minutes for Mom. Please display this Loyal Commenter badge with pride.


If you are selected as a Loyal Commenter either by our site or another blog, you can display this Loyal Commenter badge with pride. Also feel free to give the badge to the commenters that you select each week.
