Week 13 – Featured Commentor:

This week’s loyal commenter is Diana from Forgetfulone.

ForgetfuloneA mother with a blended family, Diana has been faithfully blogging for more than three years now. Admittedly very forgetful (hence the appropriate title) Diana fully, and refreshingly, embraces her calling as a mother.

Whether it’s an attempt to keep a record of the little moments in life or just enjoying the creative escape that writing provides, Diana takes her readers on a journey alongside someone who truly loves the art of blogging. From passing on tested tips for organizing those unruly junk drawers to discussing her twin’s braces, Diana’s blog is informative, fun and full of great ideas.

Here is how Diana describes herself:

“I have reached “43” without any major disaster. I have 12 year old twins, a boy and a girl, who are in seventh grade.

I’m a busy mom with full-time teaching and the kids’ activities (homework, band, piano, baseball, church, etc.). I enjoy blogging, scrapbooking, reading, writing, and watching movies.

A little over 3 years ago, I remarried, and we have a blended family, so I have 2 more stepdaughters who live at home (ages 15 and 19) and a stepson, age 28. My stepson and his wife recently had twin sons who are almost a year old.”

If you find yourself in a bit of blogger’s block, take a moment to visit Diana’s site. It’s chock full of good ideas, bound to inspire creativity.

Thank you, Diana, for being such a faithful participant in the world of blogging.

    I definitely don’t deserve this honor since I just found your blog last week. I’ve been blogging since August so the obvious question is, “Where have you been?” Anyway, I’ve been hanging out a photography sites but I’m a mom so I enjoy it here too! I’ve added you to my reader so perhaps one day, I’ll earn the badge!

    I think it is an awesome idea of thanking commenters. Thanks for taking the time to start something like this. I do apologize, as I keep forgetting to add the link here. I will do better, I promise. I do post your button though.

    Blessings Janice & Susan…I know I’m a day late but I have been waiting to join this since February!

    I don’t frequent visiting here as I must admit because I’m not a MOM but you have so many good things going on that I do lurk once and a while and read anyways. But this one just spurs me on to want to JOIN! I posted your giveaway button along time ago, like when you started and I just realized that I could post a button for this…
    so I’m off to add that in. Perhaps that will remind me to post this on next Friday and each Friday!!!

    Then I have to figure out how to visit yours and theirs & well, all the SAY IT FORWARDS! Great idea! I think I wrote a comment before about how great I think this creative idea is!!! But it’s worth repeating!!

    Loved getting to know you a little better at the conference “A Woman Inspired”:0) Thanks for everything! You are FABulous & FUN!!!

    For lack of knowing where else to post this comment, I want to know if other subscribers receive email from third parties who say, Hi, I enjoyed your comment on “such n’ such” blog, we have so much in common, if you send me your email address, I’ll send you a picture and we could become good friends, yada, yada, yada, probably spammers or solicitors. Of course, I never reply to the emails, but I’ve noticed more and more lately and they start off with how they saw my comment on a blog site. My greatest fear now is that these solicitors or whoever they are are copying the email address I leave on blog giveaways. Is this happening to anyone else?
