Comment Luv

Comments are what makes the blogs go 'round. Seriously. If it weren't for comments, I'd wonder if anyone was reading these words, although it probably wouldn't make one bit of difference. I would still feel compelled to put my thoughts and opinions down in writing since that's what us writers do.

I was a bit concerned about yesterday's post. I didn't really expect anyone to comment since it was a pretty personal piece that touched on many different subjects, all relating to sex.

Jared, my new BFF, wrote a simple statement in the comment field which has inspired today's link share. If it weren't for my dear friend - and fellow blogger - Jared, I would not know about the following amazingly wonderful sites, blogs and resources:
Just 4 Families - written by a fellow Top Health blogger through Wellsphere
minti - powered by parents
Jorim's list - Not a blog, but a video game content resource site for parents
Will U Sit - a matchmaking service between parents and babysitters
21st Century Dad - doing everything mom does (except breastfeed)
Just Daddys - a place for dads to be dads
And last, but certainly not least, Jared's blog, Dad Thing - a Dad's view on parenting. I love photos and images in blogs, and one that particularly caught my attention was from a hilarious post he wrote called I Wasn't Invited. He has other funny and insightful posts, but check this one out to get a feel for his writing.

I like to think that I can go without the comments, but when it comes down to it... I like to read what other people think. I love writing and getting whatever it is "out there" and yet... well, I would do it anyway. Comments just allow it to be a bit different!

Yeah, I could live without comments too, but I comment on other blog posts and I know I appreciate the dialogue of having others share their thoughts and opinions as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hip Mom! Thanks for the links to my friends and I! And thanks for being so honest in your previous post. So many times the blogosphere is sugar coated, but you put it out there...raw and real...and that is something I admire! ;D

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Sarah- Thanks for taking the time to say hello!
