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 see the friendships forming already. It’s a beautiful thing!

Say It Forward – Week 34: This week’s loyal commentor is Carrie from Growing a Baby in Seattle.

Carrie, her husband and their two children live in the heart of Seattle, with visions of the Space Needle loomingover their apartment. While living in the city has its perks, it can also be a challenge, expecially when your apartment is settled at the base of a large hill making walking anywhere with a toddler and a baby nearly impossible.

Whether recanting the harrowing story of her son’s birth, revealing her desire to have adult conversation, or describing her struggles to grasp the whole “stay at home mom thing,” Carrie always has a story to tell.

Carrie describes herself this way: I’m a 32 year old woman, married to the man of her dreams (Daniel). Mom to Ethan (born 8/2007) and Vivian (born 6/2009). We live on the edge of downtown Seattle, in sight of the Space Needle.

Thank you, Carrie, for your humor, your heart and for sharing yourself with us, your readers. Your blog is sweet, fresh and a delightful read.

And, of course, thank you 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.


Thank one of your loyal commenters on your blog and then add the link to your post below.

I have to say this is one of the best ideas for a carnival.
